This flat was an ideal base to explore Edinburgh as well as settle in for lovely meals and solid sleeping. The size is large, the view is iconic, the sun pours in all day, the two bedrooms lacked for nothing - even hot water bottles...More

Thank you for a very positive review. People observe different aspects and it's great to hear that the cleanliness is appreciated. Iconic is a new, but appropriate adjective to describe the views - we like it!

Lovely comfortable flat, only a 10 min walk from Princes Street but with plenty to be enjoyed in the immediate vicinity. Very helpful and friendly management. Will definitely return to this gem of a place.
