“Excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This turned out to be a great choice of accommodation for us.
Before our arrival we had some great correspondence with the owner,(Lynn) with regards to trains and arrival times etc. We had never been to Edinburgh before and were visiting to take part in the Hogmanay activities.
The accomodation was clean and warm with a little christmas tree in the living area . Lynn met us on arrival and gave us some tips for our stay and places to visit (there is a drawer with lots of leaflets on things to do)..
The apartment was very quiet and the heating was easy to alter when needed and so we had very comfortable nights sleep which is amazing for any busy city.
The location was great - easy to get to the Royal Mile and Princes Street and there was a little Sainsburys for the fresh milk etc very close by.
Grassmarket, was a lovely square of restaurants and bars and only a few yards from the accommodation.
Should we ever get the opportunity to stay again we would hope to stay in the same place -we had a fabulous time !

“Excellent Grassmarket location!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is exactly where you would want to stay to be walking all over the Royal Mile, Grassmarket area and the Castle. Great location and very comfy. We used the bedroom while our friend had the pull out couch, all very comfortable! Once our car was parked we never moved in until we left the city and then came right back to the same lot that was very reasonable in cost. Lynne was a wonderful host having all ready for us and answered all our questions during the stay. Would return in a heart-beat!

We had a wonderful stay here. Owner was extremely friendly and accessible and the apartment was comfortable and well furnished with really everything you could need for a weeks stay.
Location was ideal and if were to ever return to Edinburgh we would certainly stay there again.

“Excellent location, great little bolt-hole”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This apartment is very well situated, being just off the main part of the Grassmarket where many bars and restaurants are situated, so easy access without any night-time noise issues. The exterior is a bit unprepossessing, with slightly grubby stairwells and landings but once inside the apartment it is very comfortable, warm and well-equipped with everything a couple could want for a short-break. Bed had good linen and was very comfortable, bathroom well maintained and good shower. But you have to come back to the location - just right for popping back to after shopping or a museum visit before going out for a drink or a meal because everywhere is walking distance. Although the city is on many levels and we are a couple in our late fifties we found we could make the Royal Mile in less than 10 minutes, Princes Street in 10 and George Street in 15. The unusually peaceful haven of Dean Village - a remarkable riverside place to stroll through en route to the National Gallery ( the modern art bit ) was also easy to walk to, so check-in to this apartment and forget all about the car for a few days. The owner has left lots of useful information and was very helpful. The only thing we could think of, that the apartment didn't have, was a dishwasher - but to be fair, Edinburgh has 1700 places to eat, so why would you be eating in when you are on holiday ?
