“Perfect!”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The perfect place to stay if visiting Edinburgh - the apartment is absolutely brilliant - location 2 minutes from the castle right in the middle of town, it is so cosy with everything you could ever need. It has two lovely bedrooms and a kitchen / lounge where we chilled out and had a few drinks whilst watching the rugby... miles better than any hotel I've ever stayed in - it really felt like home, quite a few times we actually said 'we'd like to live here'! Bit of a steep climb to the top but the views are worth it. If you're going to edinburgh definitely stay here!

Thank you so much for your review! It's important for people to be able to relax at the end of a busy day in Edinburgh, so much nicer if it feels homely? We look forward to making each and every guest feel welcome.

I guess location is everything when you're looking for a city break. Who wants to trail on umpteen buses to get to museums, pubs, shops, galleries..?Thank you for your welcome feedback.

“Cozy welcoming apartment in perfect location”

Elaine prepared the apartment with much care and love so it was very welcoming and cozy when we arrived. It's very well equipped (from blow dryers to champagne glasses) and has a very homely feeling. The rooms were very cute and the beds even had heated mattress pads. You do have to climb a lot of stairs to get to the apartment but it's well worth it.

The apartments is a 3 minute walk from the castle and we almost never had to leave the Royal Mile to get to our destinations.

I would highly recommend the apartment - we had a perfect Christmas vacation there.
