The cottage is very conveniently located, a stone's-throw from the Royal Mile. It's comfortable and well kitted-out--altogether a perfect base. The owner's recommendations for things to do were also very helpful (for families with children, yes, the Camera Obscura is obligatory!)

“Highly recommended accommodation on all fronts”
Reviewed 3 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Craigwell Cottage was one of the highlights as far as accommodation was concerned on our recent trip to the UK. Susan was delightful and was there to greet us and give an overview of the cottage and area. It was extremely comfortable and well equipped and had a car parking space as well.
The cottage is located in the heart of Edinburgh just behind The Royal Mile so we were able to walk everywhere. The teenagers could come and go as they pleased which was a bonus
The only negative would be that the bedrooms can become a little cramped with suitcases however we solved that problem by placing our cases in the wardrobes.
Thank you so much Susan we will return on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Thanks for your kind review. We do have beds which have space under for stowing suitcases, but of course the sliding door wardrobes work too! Glad you enjoyed your stay, and agree that it's great to have somewhere where teenagers feel they can have some freedom to come and go, which our central location is ideal for.

Look forward to welcoming you back.
