“Home away from very far away home.”
Reviewed 2 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We were lucky enough to find Craigwell Cottage on short notice for a week. It had everything we needed plus more. Susan was very accommodating, accepting our booking without being able to secure the payment. She met us at the cottage at the agreed time, sorted the payment and gave us lots of information on the area. You will want for nothing in the cottage, everything has been thought of. It is in an excellent location being walking distance to all local attractions, but most importantly to local public transport. Parking and internet are free, big plus, and the added benefit of a washer and dryer is icing on the cake. Thank you so much Susan for a wonderfully memorable week.

Last minute bookings can be a challenge, and sometimes you just have to take things on trust - so it was lovely to chat things through by phone with our arriving guests and agree arrival times and so on.

Sometimes in these days of Internet, texts, instant messaging and so on it can be easy to forget that you can just go ahead and book accommodation by picking up the phone (followed by a booking form of course). We do our best to accommodate late bookings, but 24 hours notice is appreciated!

Glad to hear our guests had such a good time in Edinburgh in March.

Thanks for your kind review.

We did have some work going on to the gas mains in the road during your visit which meant it wasn't quite as welcoming an approach to the cottage as it might have been, however, I'm sure that the delights of visiting Edinburgh in the autumn more than made up for the temporary untidiness in the near vicinity of Craigwell Cottage.

Would love to welcome you back to Edinburgh again any time you are visiting.

Thank you for this comprehensive review, and glad to see that our son's recommendation about his favourite place, the Camera Obscura, was a hit with your son too.

We hope to welcome you back to Craigwell Cottage again soon.
