The apartment at 4/1 Old Tolbooth Wayned owned by Bob and Rona far exceeded my expectations. Perfect location to all the sights in Edinburgh as well as restaurants, pubs, grocers, shops, tour companies, train and public transit, etc. The apartment was spacious and clean with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedding, dinette area, great shower, and more! TV and wi/fi worked. A lovely place to stay for a week or more! Bob graciously met us at Waterloo and brought us to the apartment to show us everything. Rona had stocked the kitchen with homemade goodies and breakfast grocery essentials to keep us going all week! If I am lucky enough to visit Edinburgh again I would definitely stay here. A cozy place to rest after a full day of touring.
Nice one bedroom apartment just off the Royal Mile. Bob was great with communication before the trip. He and Rona were waiting for us with treats and a pot of tea when we arrived. They showed us how everything worked. They'd stocked the fridge with milk and orange juice. There's a small grocery not too far away to buy other food.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Everything is there, including a washer/dryer if you need one. Being in the heart of the Old Town I was a little worried about noise but we never heard anything either street noise or from other apartments. The bedroom faces the courtyard while the living room faces the street which doesn't get a lot of traffic (at least while road construction is going on). The elevator was nice to have for coming and going with luggage.
Bob and and his wife are there to greet us with tea and pastries. Fantastic Scottish hospitality. The location is great -- near Waverly Station and the Royal Mile. The Tollbooth Pub is right around the corner too. This was our second time staying with them and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
Beautiful 1 bedroom flat with secured parking located just off the Royal Mile. Lovely warm welcome from the owners with tea and cakes provided. Spotless, comfortable and cosy with everything you could need. The owners have made it a real home from home. Highly recommended.
We picked this apartment for a four night stay in Edinburgh based on previous reviews and were very pleased with our choice. It is very well located just a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station just off the lower part of the Royal Mile. Thr apartment itself was comfortable and cosy and equipped with everything you could need. It's the first place I've found hair straighteners as well as a dryer. The hosts generously provided home made cake and biscuits as well as fruit, milk, juice and cereals. It's the little touches that matter.
I would give this 10 stars if I could. We had a lovely stay! Very convenient to the Royal Mile -- Holyrood and the Castle. Lovely apartment. Easy directions from the bus stop. Comfortable and very quiet. Kitchen was stocked nicely -- and even a washer and dryer (really a great help when we had a day of pouring rain and needed to dry out some clothing). Bob met us with the key and instructions; there were baked goods and a pot of tea! Very nice welcome. If we ever go back -- this is the place to stay.
This was the first visit to Edinburgh for my husband and I. We were there for a long weekend to celebrate a family wedding and so did not have much time to explore the city. We certainly hope to return soon.
The appartment was just right. The location is convenient for the main places of interest. The Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament are all in easy walking distance. It is also 5/10 mins from Waverly Station and Princes Street.
The appartment is most comfortable, immaculately clean and extremely well equipped. The information packs were really useful. It was a good place to relax after our busy days. Rona and Bob Young made us feel so welcome. It was super to be met with a tea and homemade cakes on our arrival. There were enough supplies to keep us going for the whole of our stay. Thank you Rona and Bob. We hope to see you again soon.
