“Excellent accomodation ”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Apartment just as described if not better. Excellent location. Beautiful mix of old style (ceiling) vs modern. All amenities needed incl laundry. Close to restaurants and bars, train station. Royal Mile, etc. Donna met us at the apt and showed us the ropes, Us 5 women very comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

Great apartment and location. Friendly and helpful owner. Would happily stay there again. Only improvement would be a separate tumble dryer.

“Very comfortable, well-located apartment.”
Reviewed January 17, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Light and spacious first floor apartment. Well-equiped kitchen. Very close to New Town with public transport options. Good access to Hogmanay celebrations. Tesco Express just around the corner. We had some initial communication difficulties which were sorted out promptly and amicably. The biggest problem is car parking which is a nightmare - you basically have to babysit your vehicle every four hours or have it towed away!

The apartment is in the city centre and advertised as having access to city centre car parks and not having dedicated parking. However you can park outside the apartment during certain hours or outside the city centre control zones. As the apartment is so convenient to the city centre most visitors walk.

“great weekend stay!”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Excellent apartment, spacious and everything we needed. We walked to most places (10-15 minute walk) so it's very convenient but away from all the noise. Although we managed to connect easily to the apartment internet, we couldn't actually get onto to anything so not sure if there is an issue there. The 3rd bedroom mattress was very uncomfortable and definitely only suitable for one. it might be worth considering exchanging one of the king beds for twin beds?
In the main bathroom, we struggled to get a hot shower and I also got clonked on the head when the shower kept falling off it's holder. There were only 2 dishwasher tablets and we had to buy washing up liquid.Local parking is a challenge as it's permit holders only and max 4 hours on pay and display with keen traffic wardens. We dropped off the bags then took the car to Warriston Rd and walked back, leaving it there for the weekend.
These are all minor niggles, as overall the 5 of us had a great time. We cooked in the apartment and had breakfast each day. The store cupboard does contain all the basics. Due to our plans, having 2 sets of keys was a bonus. I would happily stay here again and appreciate Derek's patience in answering all our questions in advance!

“Thank you. Exactly what we wanted!”
Reviewed March 22, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A delightful apartment, just around the corner from the wedding church (St Vincent's Chapel). Easy walking distance of the station, trams, buses and that hub of Edinburgh, Princes St. The caretaker met us and she briefed us thoroughly about the apartment. We chose to eat out and there are various entirely satisfactory restaurants nearby. Weekend parking no problem (go on the single yellow line). However I am sure weekdays will be a problem! Thank you for the starter pack of tea, coffee and sugar. There is a Sainsbury Local, right out of the door, first left, 50m up the hill on the right of the street.
