I've just returned from a great short break in Edinburgh and I have to say that this apartment is absolutely perfect! It is beautifully decorated, all the rooms are very spacious and it was immaculately clean upon our arrival. The kitchen was well stocked with glasses and crockery etc., and there was lots of tea and coffee provided for us. It was also really handy to have a Sainsbury's supermarket just around the corner for any extras that we needed.

From making my initial enquiry, Derek was extremely helpful, and answered any questions I had. Unfortunately he was away on the day that I arrived, but his friend was extremely welcoming and gave us plenty of information on the apartment and the local area. There are loads of shops, bars and restaurants within a minute's walk, or you can head on up to Princes Street which is about a 5-10 minute walk away. Everything we wanted to see and do was in walking distance, but there was also a bus stop a couple of minutes away from the apartment if we wanted to use it (this came in very handy for my dad who has a bit of trouble when walking too much).

After a long day of sightseeing, it was great to get back to a place which really did feel like home from home... very warm and welcoming!

I have been to Edinburgh quite a few times before, both self catering and hotels, but this is by far the best place I have ever stayed and would certainly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good sized apartment for a group of friends or family. I will certainly return if I get the chance!

“Glorious building in outstanding location”

This elegant apartment on the spacious first floor of a glorious 18th century New Town building is located in a truly splendid street - surely one of Edinburgh's most beautiful. All central Edinburgh attractions are in easy walking distance, and the apartment is also close to trendy Stockbridge (NB excellent Sunday food market), and to Leith Walk.
We were a group of five (two couples, one single) who wanted to self-cater, and the place suited us perfectly. The interior is comfortable and practical, with one outstanding double, one good double, and a third large single. The furnishings are a fairly generic, as you might expect, but in good condition, and the bathrooms are very well equipped; everything feels clean, new-ish and comfortable. The kitchen ditto, with good fridges, and comfortable layout (although our only criticism would be we felt it was under-furnished in terms of cooking utensils and eg washing liquid/black bags). If you put your recycling in a separate bag, the proprietor will recycle for you.
The proprietor was friendly and very helpful, and I thought the whole package very good value for money.

“Absolutely perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The ideal place to stay. Good location in a beautiful Georgian terrace. The apartment was really spacious with great facilities and having the ensuite was a real bonus. Centrally located but King Street itself was quiet but with lots of restaurants and pubs on the doorstep. Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits were waiting for us and everything was really clean. Would definitely book again.

“Beyond Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The flat was the perfect place for our trip to Edinburgh! Derek (the owner) met us upon arrival and showed us around the flat and gave us lots of information and advice about local super markets, easy routes into the city and great local pubs. The location was perfect as it was an easy 5-10 minute walk into the city centre and even the area right on the flats doorstep was filled with great little pubs, shops and a Sainsburys super market in order for you to get in your own food and drinks. The flat itself was gorgeous and very spacious filled with everything we needed to have an easy and fabulous stay. It suited our family perfect. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!
