“Wonderful Location and beautiful view”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2014

Dave met us on time and had lots of good information for us about Edinburgh. The place was perfect and I even got used to the stairs. Thanks for making our stay in Edinburgh so much better. Would love to come back again.

“Great location, lovely apartment”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2014

I stayed for a weekend just after Christmas 2013. Communication to book, arrange payment/deposit etc was easy with the manager (who I want to say was Glen but I can't remember...age doesn't come alone) and I think it was he who met me on the day in question and gave me a tour of the heating and facilities; very personable chap. The apartment is exactly as it looks on the photos, some angles are flattering in terms of size, the apartment rooms are not large but they were more than ample and decorated as you see. Modern, clean and exactly what I needed. To be honest, I was in the apartment to sleep and was gone most of the day so it was only a base for me. I didn't cook, watch TV or anything like that. Bathroom was nice, although the sink was draining slowly which I pointed out to Glen when I happened to see him as I departed that property. He thanked me and said he'd sort it which I'm very sure he has. Bed was comfy, property was quiet, warm and cosy. For older travellers or persons who would struggle, it is up I think 3 full flights of stairs. With luggage for example, that would be a good workout for sure. Just something to consider. Would definitely recommend this property and based on my dealings with Glen and the company, I would undoubtedly use them again when I go back to Edinburgh. Very professional but also friendly.

This place was nothing short of amazing. Perfect location, great facilities, friendly and helpful property managers and right in the heart of it all. There was not one thing I would change about this flat (except maybe add an escalator). We had an amazing time and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Many thanks to Edinburgh Self Catering for making our holiday adventure that much more memorable!

Response from the manager I am really pleased St Giles contributed to a successful trip to Edinburgh. Unfortunately a retrospective fitting of an escalator in very unlikely in this historic building, such a pity. Regards, Glenn

“Great location for a city break”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2013

I stayed here for a week and it's ideal for a single person or a couple for a city break, I might very well book it again. Note that it's up on a high 2nd floor with no lift, so it's not suitable for anyone who has problems walking stairs, but it's got a nice and bright dual aspect livingroom with a view over St Giles Church and Parliament Square. Smack bang on the Royal Mile means it's very central, five minutes walk from Waverley train station, with loads of cafes, restaurants and pubs all around. Double glacing and the 2nd floor location means it's reasonable quiet for a city centre flat, and the block itself is very quiet, but be prepared for some noise if you think you want to sleep with the window open. Well equipped kitchen and washer/dryer means you can eat in and do your laundry as well. And the wireless Internet connection is fast as well!

“Top of the World”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

We recently stayed in this flat for 4 nights and loved it. Dave met us and showed us around the flat, then left us to our own devices. The location is outstanding, as are the views! The bed was comfortable. The flat was, perhaps, a little more worn than I had imagined, but it was clean and had what we needed. As others have mentioned, it's on the "3rd" floor (that's the 4th floor in the USa) and there are only stairs to get there, so it's not for the faint of heart... but well worth the climb for the view! Thanks for making our stay so special.

The St. Giles apartment was exactly what was advertised. It made our stay in Edinburgh perfect. The apartment had everything that was advertised. We would highly recommend this apartment. Dave was efficient and friendly. The apartment location is great. We were thrilled with the apartment.

“perfect apartment in old town”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

Terrific location: a few steps from the Royal Mile but remarkably quiet. The apartment was very comfortable for 2 adults and 1 child (11). Wonderful views from the windows.

“Location, Location, Location”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

This is my second time staying here. I choose this place because of its location, on the Mile. Short walk to the Castle, short walk to Waverly station. Close to Tesco, Sainsbury, Boots, banks, etc. Apartment is a nice size, living room is large. Dave was very helpful. Would definitely recommend. Caution, you will have to walk up several flights of stairs. This was not a problem for me. Next time I am in Edinburgh, I will stay here again.

“Best location ever!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

I am sooo pleased we booked this apartment. Its literally right in the middle of where you want to be in Edinburgh. It was well equipped, larger than the photos suggested and just overall perfect. There are three flights of stairs to the room. So if you are old, infirm or otherwise unable to carry your suitcase up three flights of steps you might want to look elsewhere. But I found the steps quite manageable, but I am in my 30s and fit. You have to have a little bit of adventure about you to know how to meet up with the landlord (we just called him on our cellphone). This isn't a hotel with a lobby and doting servants. If that's what you want (apart from missing out on great travel accommodations) you'll not want to do a self catered apartment. I hope we'll stay here again someday, it was that amazing.

“Great flat in a great location!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

Very nice apartment central on the royal mile. We were a group of four- if we weren't such a close group f friends, it might have seemed small, but we really enjoyed the space! Our contact was very warm and welcoming, and very helpful answering all our questions. It was everyone's first trip to Edinburgh, and we would all stay in this flat again next time!
