“Clean, comfortable, convenient apartment”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

A really wonderful place to stay. Clean, comfortable & very well located. About a 15 minute walk (with luggage & a seven year old!) going the long way (step~free) from Edinburgh Waverly train station. It is a bit quicker if you use the shorter route (with steps, but they are steep & can be slippery if wet). Maybe a 5~10 minute taxi ride.
The apartment is right next to Grassmarket & access is down a small alley way called Lady Wynd. There are plenty of restaurants & pubs in Grassmarket. The apartment is a minutes walk from the main Grassmarket area so nice & handy. Edinburgh Castle & the Royal Mile are very easy to walk to. Where the entrance to the apartment building is you can actually see Edinburgh Castle up on the hill. The apartment is on the first floor (up one flight of stairs) & there is no view as such from inside the apartment but it so close to everything that it makes up for it (& the fact it is quieter especially at night).
I made an online booking request with Trip Advisor & within an hour I was contacted by the owner of the apartment, Eve. Payment & booking was fast & secure & communication by Eve was nice & friendly & informative.
On the afternoon of arrival Eve was there to meet us in person. We had a lovely warm welcome. She showed us around & gave us the keys. She has thoughtfully put together a visitors information folder that has everything in there that you need to know about the apartment such as instructions for the washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, tv, freeview box, dvd player, wi~fi, central heating etc. I might add that the instructions for the tv/freeview etc are a dummies guide & are very clear even if you're not used to using technology & the remotes are numbered so there is no way you can go wrong! In the folder there is also useful info about things to do, places to visit & places to eat in Edinburgh & info/contact details if needed about Eve & her husband.
On the lounge table Eve had left us a bottle of wine, chocolates, Scottish shortbread & oatcakes, a small bottle of Scottish whisky, a fruit basket, homemade jam & other goodies & there were also fresh flowers in a vase. In the fridge was fresh milk, orange juice, several bottles of mineral water, fresh eggs from Eve's chickens, butter etc. In the cupboards there was a great assortment of teas, sugar & coffee to go in the supplied coffee plunger. There is also a basket full of single serve breakfast cereals & potato crisps/chips & a loaf of bread was there for us too. Diswasher tablets, washing machine liquid, cleaning products, broom/dustpan/brush & paper towel are all supplied. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cups, saucepans etc. Everything you need if you want to make food & cook with the microwave or oven & eat in.
In the bathroom Eve left us two bars of lovely handmade soap and some bath salts that she had made herself. There are plenty of toliet/loo rolls/paper supplied & also plenty of lovely clean fluffy towels.
The lounge has a three seater sofa/couch which does convert into a sofa bed if required. There are two comfy lounger chairs. The glass top dining table has four seats.
The bedroom has a very comfortable bed & the wardobe has plenty of hanging space for clothes and a plastic drawer unit. Inside the wardrobe there is also an iron & ironing board & a hoover/vacuum cleaner. Access to the bathroom is off of the bedroom, just something to keep in mind if sharing the apartment.
The bathroom is light & the jacuzzi bath was nice & relaxing. The power shower has very good water pressure so made washing long hair quick!
Both my daughter & I loved staying here, just wished it was for longer & we hope to return again in the future.
Many thanks Eve for making our stay in Edinburgh even more special.

“Beautiful apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great apartment with large bedroom, including large comfy bed, lovely bathroom with jacuzzi bath. Small kitchen had everything we needed. Great location at the bottom of the Grassmarket area just below Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile and a short walk from Princes Street. The hallway is bright and clean and the apartment is on the second floor so would suit everyone.
Eve takes a lot of pride in her apartment and supplied a lot of complimentary iitems including homemade soaps, jam, free range eggs, fruit, biscuits, wine and whiskey.
Will definitely return to stay in the near future.

Thank you very much for those kind words. I would just like to point out that the apartment is on the first floor, not the second :-).
Please, come back soon, and thank you for leaving the apartment absolutely spotless, there was no need, but I am grateful.

“Great experience.”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This apartment was perfectly located to explore Edinburgh on foot. It was very well equipped: enough provisions to do a breakfast/light lunch for few days, plus many extras. TV, Internet worked wonderfully. The bed was great.
Eve was a very gracious and accommodating hostess. We would definetly stay here again when back in Edinburgh.
