“Couldn't Be Better”

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at this apartment. We found that it's located pretty much close to everywhere you would want to go. There was food for sandwiches when we arrived and milk, tea, coffee biscuits. What more could you ask for?! I couldn't recommend this place enough and I will certainly be booking again when I plan my next trip to Edinburgh.

“Amazing flat, amazing location - couldn't wish for better”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I couldn't recommend this place enough. Immaculately presented and brilliantly located - in a great bustling area, easily walkable from everywhere and with the best view of the castle. Deborah was extremely accommodating and patient with all my questions pre-arrival and provided us with absolutely everything we could've hoped for from coffee and milk, to full instructions about how to find and look after what is clearly a loved and well cared for flat. One of the best places we've stayed in and will definitely be looking to book this place again the next time we're in Edinburgh. We can't thank you enough...

“Perfect location”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

An extremely welcoming and light filled flat with all amenities and a most thoughtful welcome pack of goodies. The view from kitchen window of the Castle was superb; great location for the Tattoo and within easy walking distance of Royal Mile, Waverley railway station and Princes Street shopping. Extremely comfortable pull down bed; lovely hot water; sunny kitchen with washing machine. Excellent security for single traveller. Reluctant to leave!
