“Lovely wee flat - great location!”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Really enjoyed the view of busy Grassmarket - lots going on. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the local pubs. Peace and quiet when the windows are closed. Loved it. Thank you Gill.

“An absolute gem of a place!!”
Reviewed September 10, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This place is unbelievable!! It's location, price and mod cons makes this flat an absolute gem. I was preparing myself to pay between €600-€1000 for a basic hotel room in Edinburgh when my girlfriend found this place for less than half the max I was willing to pay. We had an early flight in and as there was nobody staying there the night previous we were able to go in and get settled at 9am (most hotels will not entertain you until 3pm). Directions on how to access the flat from Gill were second to none. As mentioned in other reviews, the 3 flights of spiral stairs with a heavy bag or indeed that last pint that you should not have had can be quite strenuous, but once you turn the key in the door they are forgotten. The decor and fresh smell in the flat mad it so homely. Anything you needed you could nearly bet everything you own was in a press somewhere in the flat. The complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates were a nice touch with their little jumpers. On meeting Gill the first evening we were give some excellent advice on where to eat and drink. So much so on 2 of our 3 night stay we are in the same Italian restaurant. The location of this flat is perfect. A lovely stroll down to princes street and indeed the castle. Grassmarket itself is quiet lively and biddy mulligans right across the road was lovely to go for a bit of lunch and pint of beer. Over all this flat is by far nicer than any hotel with it's relaxed comfortable atmosphere and is perfect for a stay in Edinburgh.

“Fantastic Studio Apartment in the Grassmarket”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just back from a two night stay and can't praise the apartment enough. If it was possible to mark it higher I would. It has everything you require, very comfortable with pubs, restaurants and everything you need on your doorstep. We will definitely be back.

“The Jewel in the Edinburgh Crown”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We have just returned from a fabulous Hogmanay stay at the Grassmarket flat and cannot stress enough how fabulous it was. As previously stated the 3 flights of spiral stairs are quite daunting but are totally forgotten each time you open the front door and enter the flat.

The attention to detail and cleanliness are second to none as well as the high quality fixtures and fittings. It is ideally placed to visit all the attractions the city has to offer with a fantastic view over the Grassmarket itself. Gill's communication and directions prior to arrival were fabulous and we had no problems locating and accessing the flat.

We have visited Edinburgh on a number of occasions, will definitely return and will never stay anywhere else.

“Best apartment on the Grassmarket by far!!!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at this lovely apartment for a long weekend in mid November.
The view from the twin windows is just amazing. Pull a chair out from the dining room table, pour a glass of the complimentary bottle of wine and people watch down the length of Grassmarket.

Fantastic location, superb furnishings, the most comfortable bed and the warmest of welcomes from the owners.
We've already booked to return next year.
