“Great location for exploring Edinburgh”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This small and easily maintained ground floor apartment is an ideal location for exploring the city on foot. It provides a great location, since it is close to Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. From this property we walked across a large section of the city. it is also easily placed for a visit to Leith and Portobello by car.
We visited in November, and were warm and comfortable in the apartment throughout our time there. The owner welcomed us on our arrival and we were pleased with the ease of arranging our visit. Thoroughly recommend to single or couples looking to explore this culturally vibrant city.

“Clean, comfortable and excellent location”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Virtually everything you need for a stay is included in the apartment complete with guide books and binoculars! Extremely quiet and friendly neighbours and yet only a few minutes walk from Holyrood House and the Royal Mile. Lynn and Paul are very welcoming and thoughtful hosts with a welcome tray of teas, coffees and biscuits etc. - Paul met us with the keys and nothing was too much trouble.
I honestly would not stay anywhere else for a break in Edinburgh - absolutely first class!

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Edinburgh is a superb city for a break and this apartment is an excellent place to stay to explore it. It is a five minute walk from Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament, at the foot of the Royal Mile. Then, a further 15 minute walk up the hill and you're at the castle and Old Town. There are frequent 'buses, though, if you need them to reach Princes Street. We didn't!

The apartment itself is compact and warm, clean and very well-equipped, also very quiet. The bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of bedroom storage. Parking on the complex is no problem, and the car stayed put between arrival and departure (four nights).

Value for money; comfort; cleanliness; convenience - top marks!

“Excellent location, quiet, convenient and comfortable”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The accommodation at Free Parking, Royal Mile was perfect for a stay in Edinburgh. The apartment was well set up with a very comfortable bed and adequate space for a couple . Being on the ground floor was an added bonus as there were no stairs to carry luggage up. The location was very quiet and convenient as it was within walking distance of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Arthur's Seat. We only used our car when travelling out of Edinburgh for day trips. Parking was easy to find in the complex. We also greatly appreciated being rescued and led to the accommodation when we got lost on our first day. Excellent service! The only suggestion I would make would be to have a larger table for dining.

Thanks for the great feedback. Yes the ground floor is good when you have heavy luggage and being able to walk everywhere from the apartment is so convenient. Paul was happy to come and rescue you when you found yourselves lost due to road closures on your way here. Being local he knew the back roads and shortcuts to lead the way. I agree the bistro style dining table is a bit small so I have just ordered a new larger table. Thanks again for your review. Lynn
