Cosy, convenient and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed Ina number of Edinburgh flats in recent years, and this one never disappoints. You are greeted by Bob on arrival who gives you all the info you need. The flat is immaculately clean, in a very quiet block of flats just off Leith Walk. You are handy for Princes Street, the good range of rstaurqnts on Leith Walk and - my favourite - the famous Valvona & Crolla Italian shop and restaurant. Top marks.

Lovely break

  • 4 of 5

Apartment had everything we needed. Good size. Bob met us and explained all we needed and able to answer all our questions. Shortbread, milk, tea and coffee was a nice touch. Only downside was the road being closed for work and our satnav did not pick up another route back, so took us a while to get back to apartment.

You will be spoiled for choice of things to see and do in Edinburgh but here are some of the most popular. Historical sites include Edinburgh Castle, The Camera Obscura, Holyrood Palace, The Georgian House, the Museums of Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Enjoy the outdoors with a walk around the Royal Botanic Garden, Inverleith Park, Princes Street Gardens or Holyrood Park, explore the village of Stockbridge with its individual shops and cafes, climb Calton Hill for a great view of Edinburgh and the River Forth, or visit the Giant Pandas - and a lot more - at Edinburgh Zoo. Many of these are within easy walking distance of the apartment but Edinburgh also has a comprehensive bus service for getting around. The nearest bus stop is only 200 metres from the apartment. Open top double deck bus tours are provided by a number of operators and are a great way of seeing the city.
