“Nice apartment, well equipped and right in the centre of Edinburgh”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Had a great time in this nicely decorated apartment. It's small, especially for us tall Ducthies, but that wasn't a problem. There's a nice bedroom with a great bed and the city is remarkably quiet at night in my experience. It's a short walk to the old city centre and you can spend a week there alone or take a hop-on hop-off bus to explore. Great beautiful city!
If you travel by car, it's advisable to look up parking rates and zones on the internet. Parking spaces that are free in the weekend are at walking distance.

Liked best: Good location, great bed and a supermarket around corner
Liked least: Dining table was a bit small for us (knees above table almost :) and parking was a (small) challenge, then again, what would you expect in a city.

“Great apartment in the centre of Edinburgh”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for a week on a combined business/holiday.
The apartment is clean, well equipped with everything you need (including WIFI), and a good size if your traveling with 2. It is very homely.
Its very central - walking distance from Grassmarket, Princess street, Edinburgh Conference centre and the University. There is a Sainsbury Local around the corner as well as a descent Pub (Blue Blazer) and a great independent coffee/cake shop (Lovecrumbs).
The owner was very nice, attentive and responsive to our questions.
All in all a great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again..

“Ideal for 2”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment is homely and contained everything needed for our short stay.
The location is very central, close to the historic centre of Edinburgh. We were able to walk easily to the Grassmarket, to Princes Street, to and from Waverley Station and to Murrayfield. Despite it's central location, the apartment was very quiet.
It was lovely to see the Castle from a totally different perspective and the Farmer's Market on Saturday on Castle Terrace provided a good alternative to the Sainsbury's around the corner from the apartment.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed here last weekend and have nothing but positive things to say about the whole experience. The apartment is absolutely exquisite - beautifully decorated and with a lovely -lived in' vibe to it. It's location is more or less ideal - close walking distance to the Grassmarket and a short 5-10 min stroll from the likes of Princes Street and George Street. But still thankfully nice and quiet at night. Moira, the owner of the property, was a total delight to deal with - welcoming and friendly and very helpful with suggestions as were to eat and drink.

I simply cannot recommend this place enough. Will be back.

“Homey appartment, exellent host”

The apartment was exactly as described. It has a homely feel and is located in walking distance of the things you want to see when visiting Edinburgh.
The host (Moira) is very friendly, helpful and quick in reply.

We stayed at Moira's flat for 4 nights in January and I couldn't have been happier. The flat is well located for all the things Edinburgh has on offer, with the castle and royal mile being within a short walk. The flat itself is cosy and well appointed should you wish to cook your own meals. Comfy bed, nice and warm, clean and all at a very reasonable price. Moira herself was very friendly and welcoming which just makes this rental all the more personal and pleasant. Felt very at home here and we were in a great location for getting around to see everything we wanted to. Highly recommend if you're looking to visit Edinburgh as this flat is a little gem.

Moira was great from the start. The apartment is warm and cosy and we felt at home. Our kids made good use of the free wifi too. Everything was clean and tidy, we had everything we needed and we were 10 minutes walk from everywhere we wanted to go. Thankyou Moira.
