Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay. I truly believe that the only way to be closer to the castle would have been to be inside of it!. Comfortable for our family of 6.

Thoroughly enjoyed stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat was in a great location, steps away from the Edinburgh castle. Everything we needed was in the flat - had 2 families there and everyone had adequate space for sleeping. It is close to the bus line, train terminal, royal mile - everything is within walking distance. Nice place.

Great Location no view of Castle!

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival, no one at the property to check in and no good direction or location of the unit. Very difficult to carry luggage up three flights to unit, then two more flights up to floor. No lights on stairs so be careful as one in our party fell on the concrete stairs. In the unit, TV did not work in first floor bedroom. During stay two doorknobs fell off. Many light bulbs were out. But the location is great for shopping restaurants and the castle. I would not return. Check out time is 11, cleaner arrived at 10:40 and seemed very annoyed we were still in the unit. Not a well kept unit, needs a lot of little maintenance issues.

Great historical house, wonderful location. Worth the $

  • 5 of 5

Be sure that you and your family and friends are ready for the adventure of ascending 2 floors of spiral stone steps before achieving wonderful views, great bathrooms and an Aga in the sizable kitchen that stays warm (and dries your clothes via a beautiful rack above the stove). Loads of space. Very fashionable touches. Full dining and family room. Great place.

Spacious flat with amazing view of Edinburgh Castle

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to holiday. I came here on business with my university, sharing the flat with 6 others, but it still felt like a vacation. The accommodations were excellent - comfy beds, excellent kitchens, updated bathrooms, and adequately furnished. The wifi was a tad disappointing, especially because we had research to conduct; however, the location and castle view made up for the slow & spotty wifi. Contact with management team was smooth and professional. I had no difficulties finding the flat from the AirLink drop-off at Waverly Bridge. I would definitely stay here again, and I hope to book again next year.

A beautiful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

This turned out to be the perfect place to stay for our trip to Edinburgh. The flat was very well kept and quickly felt like home after we arrived. The instructions on how to check in were great and it was in an ideal location close to the centre. The owners provided tips on restaurants and things to do and access to wifi and digital TV meant that it was also an ideal place to relax and switch off for a bit. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Edinburgh.
