“Top Spot”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A wonderful example of quirky old town Edinburgh. Could not be better placed - on The Royal Mile within strolling distance of all the major attractions.

A feat of ingenuity to pack so much character into a relatively small space. We had a long weekend here and loved the place. It takes top spot for us. We have stayed in Edinburgh's 5 star hotels before but this place beats them all. We ate out but if you're self catering all the kit you need is present in abundance.

Probably not the quietest place in Town at night, but the buzz adds to the overall experience.

There's countless places to eat and drink within minutes. You're literally next door to the Jolly Judge Pub; yet another quirky example of this amazing city.

As a rule we never go back to the same place twice but this will be our exception.

Quite an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend it.

“fantastic Edinburgh apartment”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

we just stayed at the snug this weekend and can't sing its praises high enough. It really is in the best location you can find. Everything you want is right in your doorstep yet you are tucked away down a quiet lane. The bed was really comfy and everything was spotless. Can't wait to book again!

“A wonderful birthday treat!”

We booked this for my mother and stepfather to celebrate their 70th and 80th birthdays; they had a wonderful time, enjoying the central location and unique accommodation, and being so central managed to pack in a huge amount of sightseeing in a few days. Brian, the owner, helped organise this trip for them, ad could not have done more helping enormously with queries both before and during the visit as well as taking in a Tesco delivery prior to their arrival so everything was laid on for them. Although I did not stay there, the feedback from my parents was superb, and they had a wonderful trip. Thank you.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”

My eleven year old daughter and I traveled to Edinburgh in early April, staying at the Snug for 3 nights. I let my daughter pick our accommodation after she absolutely fell in love with the photos for this apartment. They did not disappoint! The location is fabulous - in the middle of everything, yet quiet and cosy. We loved being able to pop in and out as we journeyed up and down the Royal Mile taking in all Edinburgh has to offer. Our use of the kitchen was limited to purchasing wonderful Scottish cheese from IJ Mellus Cheesemonger, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and using the washer/dryer combo. The owner is easy to get in touch with and very helpful. We have both fallen in love with Edinburgh, highly recommend the Snug and definitely hope to return!
