“Fabulous Location - Lovely Accommodation”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My husband and I visit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival regularly - this was by far the best location we have found enabling us to fully enjoy all that the Fringe has to offer - we loved it so much we have already asked to book for the same time next year!

Whatever your reason for travelling to Edinburgh we would highly recommend this lovely flat not far from the bustling Grassmarket but quite quiet and peaceful - except of course when the tattoo is in full swing - but that is only to be expected when choosing to stay in a place where you can walk out of the door and see Edinburgh Castle just a stones throw away. The walk up Heriot Bridge, the road leading to the flat is a little steep but again this is to be expected as there are very few walks in Edinburgh that don't have an incline (good for the calf muscles)!

The flat is ground floor so great if you are not a fan of steps - there are a few externally to the building but there is also flat access. The flat is set in a small complex of flats however the area is very quiet and we saw very few of the other residents. It really is a home from home with ample space for two. A well equipped kitchen, very comfortable bed and lovely lounge in which to relax and plan your day or recover from a hectic day at the Fringe. The bathroom is lovely and is stocked with all you need for your stay.

Grassmarket is a lovely area of Edinburgh with plenty of places to eat and a small convenience store for food. Duncan provides excellent information with regard to things to do in the area and where to eat. Although we have been to Edinburgh many times we had never noticed one of the restaurants recommended by Duncan but on our last night we visited the restaurant - fabulous setting, fabulous food and no more than a ten minute walk from the flat.

For visits to the Fringe, this flat could not be a better choice - free venues on the doorstep, a short walk to Cowgate for the Underbelly and Just the Tonic venues. About 15 or 20 minutes away from the Assembly in George Square and a similar walk to the Pleasance venues. The Royal Mile is just up the hill, again no more than a 10 minute walk. Old Town and New Town Venues are very easy to get to from this fairly central location.

If travelling by train, the flat is about a 15-20 minute walk from the station. Duncan provided good information to help us find the flat and as he was unable to meet us provided information to enable us to access the flat with ease. There are some lovely touches provided to make you feel welcome and immediately at home.

We paid more than we have previously for accommodation in or near Edinburgh however it is certainly worth the money - as I said we have already asked to book again. We would highly recommend this venue for any visit to Edinburgh but particularly if you are a fellow Fringe fanatic!

Thank you Duncan and Daniella for providing this fabulous home from home.

Very nice apartment at the heart of Edinburgh old town, yet peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and the owners Duncan and Daniela were extremely welcoming and helpful. The apartment was spotless and there were even some basic food supplies purchased for us to use. We could not have expected more, thank you very much D&D!
