“Always a pleasure”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2014

It's always a pleasure to deal with Vacation Rentals Scotland. This was our fourth year renting from them. We recommend them to everyone. If you have specific questions about the apartments, they will answer in a timely manner.

“Diese gemütliche Unterkunft war perfekt für unseren 3-Tage-Aufenthalt in Edinburgh.”

In der Altstadt gelegen und dennoch absolut ruhig. Durch die zentrale Lage konnten wir alles zu Fuß erreichen. Auch die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet. Wir können sie uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

“Great Location!”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

The apartment has a wonderful view of Greyfriar's Kirk & Cemetery. It was clean and well maintained. The kitchen is large enough to cook full size meals. The bedroom is large with a comfortable bed. The extremely slow shower draining and the toilet taking too long to refill were frustrating but did not diminish the overall satisfaction. The location made it very easy to walk to your favorite restaurant or pub. The double entry system makes the apartment feel safe. Occasional noise from neighbors but tolerable. This is the second time we have used this apartment and would use it again in the future. Special note: beware the 10:00 p.m. cemetery tour & expect a scream about 11:30 p.m. each night.

Response from the manager Thanks for taking the time to write a review; much appreciated. Thanks too for alerting us to the slow draining shower; we have now cleared the drain. Best regards, Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland

“Loved the flat!”

This Greyfriars apartment is just as described. The location is perfect - just a 3 minute walk from the Royal Mile. The apartment is nice, comfortable, and quiet. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you'll need if you choose to eat in. The neighborhood has everything you could need including groceries stores, drug stores, bank, pharmacy, restaurants, and several great pubs.Overall, it was fantastic to be able to tour Edinburgh and then be able to come back to our home away from home in the evening and relax in comfort and luxury. Many thanks for the beautiful manner, Martin and Ewan.

“What a lovely place!”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2013

I saw this cute apartment a while ago and always dreamed about to stay here one day, which I did this November. It's a lovely place to stay in this beautiful town. You can relax on the couch, have a coffee or a tea, look acroos the rooftops ...and you will see the famous crown steeple of St Giles. The apartment itself is small, perfect for single travellers or a couple, the kitchen is well-equipped, the living room is cosy, with blankets and cushions, you even have a fireplace. The bedroom has a walk-in closet, the bed itself is very comfy. And it is really quiet up there! All windows are facing Greyfriars Kirkyard, so no noise at all! And after 35 steps downstairs you are right in the middle from Edinburgh. The National Museum of Scotland is just around the corner. There are a post office and a pharmacy just few doors away and you will always find somewhere to go for a nice dinner or a drink (e.g. Sandy's Bell) Sainsbury, Tesco and Starbucks are also close by. All in all: A very cute-cosy-comfy treasure!

“Absolutely perfect”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

We had a wonderful vacation in this cosy, clean and comfortable apartment. It has everything you may need, the location cannot be more convenient and it's simply lovely. We'll be back, that's for sure. And Edinburgh is beautiful at this time of the year.
