“Wonderful location on the historic Royal Mile!”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Very nicely appointed flat and centrally located for restaurants and sightseeing. Owners had left us tea, coffee, milk and shortbread which was a very thoughtful touch. Will definitely visit again!

“Great location!”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Tweeddale Court is charming. It was a very comfortable flat to come back to after a day of sightseeing. And the location on the Royal Mile was ideal.

“Great location and gracious owner”
Reviewed December 7, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Great location and very cosy/comfortable/clean apartment for a small family. It's on the Royal Mile and all the attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, Waverly Bridge (for the bus tours) and Dynamic Earth are within walking distance. Price for the apartment is also very reasonable. The owner Kate was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early as our flight arrived early. Just note that the apartment is on the 3rd floor so you need to carry your luggage up - but the apartments on the Royal Mile are very old buildings so you won't find an elevator in any apartments here. Kate was also kind enough to help us carry one luggage to the apartment!

Apartment superb in terms of comfort and thoughtful touches but especially in terms of location. So convenient for everything including pub next door, numerous places to eat, local shops for provisions and easy walking distance to all locations. will certainly return.

“Fantastic apartment in excellent location”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A beautifully presented apartment in a fantastic location on the Royal Mile. Well equipped and well maintained, the apartment was a joy to stay in. Easy walking distance to everything Edinburgh has to offer. Excellent communication with owner who was helpful at every stage. I would thoroughly recommend.

“Wonderful Flat in the Old Town”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This Royal Mile flat could not have been more central, convenient or comfortable for us. It felt very private and safe, with windows (double-paned for noise reduction) looking right out over the action. We appreciated the classy touches provided like milk in the fridge and tea on the counter, an actual bar of soap in the bathroom (as opposed to liquid), a great DVD selection, etc. We would have been happy staying longer. Our experience here could not have been better.

“An oasis on the Royal Mile”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a delight - attention to detail, room to move, and position. Steve and Kate you are to be congratulated for the way you offer this apartment. EVERYTHING WORKS and works well amid the charm of this beautifully renovated apartment. The location on the Royal Mile means it is oh so convenient to take in the Edinburgh's best sites away from the madding crowds.
