What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic apartment in the heart of the city
We were looking for an alternative to staying in a hotel and we certainly found it! What a brilliant apartment which had everything we needed. Ample living accommodation with good kitchen facilities. The added touch of having milk, tea and coffee etc on arrival was such a nice thought.
The apartment is situated at the end of Princes Street and a stones throw away from all of attractions. Perfect for discovering the city.
Arranging our stay was very simple. John stayed in regular contact via email and kept us up-to-date with everything. They were on hand to call when needed and offered friendly advice.
Couldn't have asked for a better stay and would recommend the apartment to many.
This loft apartment is not for those who don't like to walk. There are at least 40 steps to climb so with suitcases it can be a strain on those not fit or with disabilities. That being said for 120 pounds per night it was a very adequate apartment with open bedroom, full kitchen and living room. The view out some of the windows toward the sea was beautiful and the quiet location at the end of the royal mile within walking distance of the center city and attractions was excellent. Right in front, Howie's restaurant served tasty and reasonable meals with cheery service. The furnishings are simple and the kitchen is a bit dated so don't expect too much. The heater was complicated to figure out but the owner had set it to kick in at 5am and go off in the pm so this worked out well since it was still warm enough in late august. There is only one bedroom which is open to the rest of the house so it is only suited for a couple or family used to sleeping together using the living room.The lack of wi fi was a nuisance but there is a cafe within 10 minutes with free wi fi. All in all I would probably go back there again.

Fabulous apartment with terrific views and a great location
John was very welcoming, He provided advice with respect to good walks and locations of restaurants.
The apartment itself had fantastic views from most windows. It was quaint and comfortable and had all the amenities that you require for a comfortable stay.
The apartment had a great location being only a 5 minute walk from Waverley Station and Princes Street
Fabulous property in convenient and picturesque location
My husband, myself and 14 yr old stayed in this flat for a long weekend. The location is great, a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station and with views over the Firth of Forth. Its central location meant that we were able to walk to most of the sights and local buses were within 3 minutes walk to visit Leith and Portobello. The owners arrangements for key collection were straightforward and easy. The property was clean, light and bright. The floor plan is rectangular with a double bedroom (no door) at one end, then kitchen and lovely bathroom in the centre, and large living room with sofa bed at the other end. It is a great layout and suited us beautifully. There is no wi-fi, but we just went to the hotel across the road who let us use their system for the price of a cup of tea. Accommodation recommended, and we would go there again - now we know about this jewel.
A wonderful experience in a great location
John and co. We cannot thank you enough for your warmth and hospitality - we were spoiled! The flat was simply fabulous and the location absolutely second to none. You've really been a big part of our quite wonderful Edinburgh experience. We'll be back. Thank you.
