2 Chester St

Visited by Tripadvisor
Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 6 Bathrooms , Sleeps 22
Edinburgh, Scotland
2 Chester St is a large historic Town House with ornate stairwell and cupola. All of the rooms have been recently refurbished - many decorated with old etchings, original art and old photographs of Edinburgh from the Scotsman archive.

The living room, equipped with new flat screen television and table football, also boasts an antique ormolu chandelier, plus views onto the beech trees of Drumsheugh Gardens, while the kitchen has recently been re-floored with travertine laminate. The large wooden kitchen dining table seats 12.

A Conran Shop Table football, two music systems (kitchen and living room), and super fast Wi-Fi add to the fun atmosphere in the house. And a very large boiler at the top of the building ensures a plentiful supply of hot water to the two bathrooms (both with showers and baths) and 3 separate WCs in the building.
