Great location just off the busy, busy Royal Mile I have never seen so many cashmere sweaters in all my life. This flat is down a bit but yet just two minutes your golden your on the Royal Mile. My wife and I have nothing but praise for Kitty the owner, never a word unless you need something and she will be on it like white on rice. She is a very nice, welcoming hostess. The flat itself is in a good location just up a wee lane way far enough from the noise and hustle of the mile. The layout is just great and the flat it self has been well thought out and tastefully done and decorated. It was so nice not to be to far from our flat so when we did get weary we knew our flat was close by. We can't say enough good things about it and if you are going to book it and your worried about where your child is going to sleep the pullout couch was nice I felt it to be harder than the bed how ever with my back issues it helped a lot. If you are thinking of booking this flat don't think about anywhere else but Kitty's you won't regret that decision. We can't wait to return!!

We stayed here for a city break in Edinburgh. Kitty gave us great directions to finding the apartment, and also a brilliant breakdown of places to visit and eat. There's a lot of useful information in the apartment, and the kitchen and bathroom were very well equipped, and to top it off, the location was perfect.

We stayed at this delightful apartment for one week in January and had a fantastic time. The apartment is tastefully furnished and well equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The location is perfect. It is quiet yet absolutely central. The Coinyie House Close is very pretty and peaceful. We loved the area with its many tiny streets where individual shops, cafés and bistros are found in abundance. The Castle and Holyrood Palace are both within walking distance and Arthur's seat is nice walk on a sunny day. Kitty provides lots of information on sights, events and restaurants. It is always a pleasure meeting her on arrival!

It will be difficult for us to re-book this apartment as it will never have any vacancies...! We felt instantly at home, stylish, comfortable and in a wonderful location to walk to all that Edinburgh has to offer. Despite all the frenetic activity in the Royal Mile we were able to enjoy the quiet square and had the best nights sleep we had had for ages.....

We were so lucky to find this apartment for our trip to Edinburgh. The location couldn't be better, it is situated in a courtyard just off the Royal Mile and an easy 10 minute walk from Waverley train station.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and well equipped, it had everything we needed for our 3 night stay - so much so that we chose to stay in and cook rather than go out for meals in the evening! We didn't spend a lot of time in Edinburgh as we were travelling each day to the Commonwealth Games but I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again for any future visits.

Thank you for a fantastic stay.

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to be the first guests at Kitty & Tom's beautiful Royal Mile Apartment. The communication was first class throughout and we really couldn't have hoped for a more welcoming and enjoyable place to base ourselves for our long weekend.

The apartment is situated in a 17th century building just two minutes' walk from the hub of Edinburgh and overlooks St Patrick's churchyard. The area was so peaceful it was hard to believe we were that close to the vibrant and busy Royal Mile!

Spacious, open, airy and light, the apartment has been restored to an exceptional standard throughout whilst keeping all of the old charm and character. From the tasteful soft furnishings to the creaky wooden floors to the huge windows to the grand fireplaces, it's just a delight to relax and spend time in. The bathroom and kitchen are high spec and although we didn't cook whilst we were there the cupboards and shelves were well stocked with utensils, crockery and cutlery should we have wanted to!

We loved every moment in Edinburgh and would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the city. We're almost too scared to rave about it too much in case it's fully booked when we come again... we wouldn't be surprised!

Thanks for a memorable weekend, hope to stay again some time in the future.
