My wife and I stayed for part of the Edinburgh Festival, and the house, in its central location, is superbly placed for that. Tucked away off the Grassmarket area, it is amazingly quiet but only a few metres from all the action. All necessary comforts are catered for and the friendly owners do all they can to ensure this.
We first chose the Signal House last summer for a visiting teacher as part of an International teaching tour and were delighted with all aspects of it. We booked a return visit this year.
The Old Town location of the property is incredibly central and convenient, with an extraordinary view of the castle from the upstairs living room. Set back from the front door entrance on busy West Port, it is a joy to walk into the calm of the quiet and leafy courtyard that leads to the property. This is an extraordinarily fortuitous find; a truly quiet and very pleasant flat right in the very centre of the city.
The Signal House is thoughtfully designed, spotlessly clean and very tastefully presented throughout. The bedroom has shuttered windows and the bed is extremely comfortable. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the living room is a wonderfully agreeable place to rest and enjoy the view.
Peter is surely the most reliable, welcoming and helpful of hosts; we could not ask for more. He really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed.
We recommend the Signal House highly and unreservedly!
This apartment is delightful, perfectly located, spotlessly clean and ideal for 2 people exploring this wonderful city. The welcome pack was very useful. Thank you.
A wonderful small house with garden and a view of Edinburgh Castle only about 400 metres away.
The facilities in the house are excellent and it has a homely feel.
The owners are extremely helpful and available if necessary.
This is the third time we have used their properties and have never been disappointed.
