“Wonderful Self-catering Apartment”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is a lovely one bedroom apartment located in the old part of Edinburgh. It is within easy walking distance of the castle, the Royal Mile, the university, Greyfriars' Kirk (which it abuts), the National Museum of Scotland (a great place to learn about Scottish history) and and many other "must see" sites. It is within easy walking distance of a new Sainsbury's Market and a great bakery and coffee shop called Neal's Yard, so obtaining provisions is easy.

The building was constructed in the 1700. The unit itself is modern and very well equipped with new appliances and a wide range of glasses, cups, dishes and cooking equipment. It is very well maintained and absolutely charming. The Watts are great hosts and have gone to great lengths to make their visitors' stays enjoyable. They have a guest book with very good observations and recommendations as well as an extensive library. The rooms were good sized and fairly well lit. We have recommended this apartment to our friends and know that most who stay here will very much enjoy it.
