“Great Stay on the Royal Mile”
Reviewed 8 January 2012 for a stay in April 2010

It is a long time coming this review as it has taken awhile to find Pillowstops on Trip Advisor. The memory however of the stay is fresh in my mind and subsequent to this stay I have also stayed at Advocates Close another property on the Royal Mile managed by Pillowstops. This is an excellent apartment, right in the thick of all the action, you can sit for ages in one of the window sets watching people meander up and down the road. The apartment itself is well appointed with everything you will need for a holiday. Derek the Manager/owner of the property is friendly and very helpful and it was easy to follow his directions and he was there to met us as arranged.

“Great location, spotless, well presented exactly as advertised.”
Reviewed 13 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

What a great apartment! The widow seats (in every room!) were the highlight for us. You can look up and down the Royal Mile & see what's going on at all hours. The apartment was really spotless & well set up with everything you could need. The owners seem to really care about the presentation. Fresh flowers, fresh milk, juice and crackers along with tea & coffee etc on arrival. Super cosy, comfy beds, nice hot water, free wi-fi, tourist info, maps etc and all with the castle less than 10 mins away. We have three kids and they appreciated the kids books, games and videos. Tip: It's a lively area with things happening night and day so if you need perfect silence to sleep- take earplugs.
