“Lovley homely apartment”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed here the last weekend in November as we were visiting the Christmas markets. Eve welcomed us and was very flexible with arrival and departure times. We were in awe at the special touches in this apartment such as home made soaps and the selection of food left for our use. Location is excellent. Only a short walk to royal mile and apartment is situated in the grass market but you do not hear any outside noise. All in all a lovely place to stay.

“Outstanding accommodation”

We were delighted with our stay at Lady Wynd. The owner, Eve, was flexible with arrival & departure times and welcomed us at the apartment in a most friendly manner, before giving us a quick tour and a rundown of the basics. She had left us a generous range of food supplies to start us off. It was an ideal location for our stay in Edinburgh and had everything we could possibly need, and more. The apartment was beautifully furnished, immaculately clean and very comfortable. All four of us are in agreement that we would not hesitate to return to this property and, in fact, hope to do so. Highly recommended.

“Lovely apartment in great location”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here for a few nights in November & it was a great location in the Old Town from which to explore Edinburgh. The apartment is really homely, it has everything you would need and an extremely comfortable bed! Eve was there to welcome us & give us all the essential information for the apartment which was very helpful. Eve has done a lot to really make visitors feel at home - lots of extras which we didn't expect and meant we didn't want for anything. Would particularly recommend her home-made soaps! The location is really good too - easy to get to the castle & the Royal Mile. We'd recommend The Last Drop on Grassmarket (good Haggis, Neeps & Tatties) which is just a few minutes from the apartment. Thank you Eve for making us very welcome.

“A great base for exploring Edinburgh”
Reviewed November 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had an enjoyable stay in this apartment, which was right at the foot of Castle Rock and close to everything we wanted to see. It was comfortable and quiet despite being so central. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and the owner, Eve, welcomed us with a basket of provisions, including her own free range eggs. It was a great start for two jetlagged Aussies.

“Fabulous apartment in great location”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in this great little apartment for a weekend during November. Eve, the owner, met us at the apartment and was very welcoming - showed us how to operate the heating and gave us a quick 'how to' on the kitchen appliances. The apartment itself is very comfortable and cosy and has everything you need should the weather not prove conducive to venturing out - Virgin TV, DVD player, CD player and wifi all teamed up with a comfy couch and chairs to chill out in. The bathroom is spacious and has a wonderful jacuzzi bath which I tried out - not the most powerful of jets, but it still did the job and was incredibly relaxing. As for the bedroom, the bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in - the mattress is (I think) memory foam and we both had the best sleep, I didn't want to get up! The location of this apartment is great - just off of Grassmarket, which is lively and full of bars and restaurants, and only a 10 minute walk to Princes Street if you want some retail therapy.

What really made it so special for us, though, were all the little touches that Eve had laid on - fresh milk, juice and yoghurts in the fridge plus eggs from her own hens and home made jam, a welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates, and fresh flowers. Even hand made soaps, shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom - we felt very much at home and had a wonderful stay. We will definitely look to book this apartment again next time we are in Edinburgh.

What a find this lovely little flat was. What set it apart was the thoughtfulness of Eve, the owner, and the many extras she had left us. Fantastic. And the location is perfect - a minute's walk from the Grassmarket. A beautifully presented holiday apartment. V

“Everything you could possibly need!”
Reviewed November 5, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Down a little unassuming lane is a little pearl. Just around the corner from Maison De Moggy for any cat lovers. We were greeted by the lovely Eve who showed us around. Theres nothing she hasnt provided - we had popped into M & S for some supplies but we could easily have gone there without the basics. Milk, bread, wine, chocolates, fruit basket, yoghurts, basket of Scottish goodies, cereals, crisps and even eggs from her chickens. The bathroom had equal amounts of bits and pieces, even home made soaps. Eve also supplies extra bedding for the sofabed in the living room. From the lane you look up and see the Castle, and just around the corner is the Grassmarket. Lovely places to eat and drink - if you're looking for a nice Mexican I'd recommend Mariachis. If you're looking to buy whisky pay Josh a visit in The Whisky Shop. This young man knows his stuff. Will definitely be returning - Eve has made a holiday let feel like a home.
