Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners' personal and prompt attention from the moment of inquiry promised an outstanding experience; we were not disappointed. The size, layout, and facilities were perfect for our group of eight, which ranged in age from 10 months to nearly 70. Nearby markets--from small shops to gourmet fare--as well as excellent carry-out options within a five-minute walk made it possible to have nearly all meals in the well-appointed Penthouse without missing out on local flavors and culture. The middle generation also had a great night out within easy walking distance. The nearby playground and easy bus to the zoo were a plus; the walk to Holyrood and Royal Mile was pleasant for those who like to explore on foot. The owners go out of their way to make guests comfortable--and even pampered.

Great location and a really well appointed flat. Its perfect for our family and the off street parking is also a real bonus. The owner is incredibly helpful and really welcoming. Extra star for the shortbread and wine on arrival !

Very comfortable, fairly central, excellent host.

  • 4 of 5

The Penthouse is well appointed in all areas-living room, bedrooms,bathrooms.Only downside is the number of steps.The provision of 2 parking places is a big plus for a central Edinburgh property as the parking wardens are vigilant.Eddie has every detail of your stay covered & has lots of DVD's and music CD's for those damp days.Only downside is you don't seem to be able to play DVD's on the living room TV?I couldn't fault the accommodation otherwise & Chiara is an excellent chef.

The Penthouse Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Eddie made our stay extremely easy with all the notes and detailed folder of how to's. The property is in a very secluded complex close to some great restaurants, local shops & transport. A brief walk to all of the above made our first trip to Edinburgh an easy one to navigate.

The Penthouse is very secure and we felt very safe at all times. We had two couples in the unit but it could have adequately slept 3 couples or a family of 6. The space we had meant we were able to spread ourselves out and could sit quietly without worrying we were going to disturb the couple we travelled with.

The cooking facilities in the kitchen and the variety of utensils meant we wanted for nothing. The lounge room had a broad selection of DVD's if ever we needed to simply sit and relax in the unit.

Eddie left the most delicious selection of jams, teas, bread cheese and wine which meant we could really relax when we first arrived before heading the local Coop to fill the fridge.

The rooms we large, the beds comfortable and instructions for use of everything was great. Thanks for everything would truly recommend a stay and would stay there again ourselves

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Scotland and we were super excited to stay at this property. Before our arrival the owner of the property made contact with us via email as well as phone calls. The owner of the property is absolutely awesome. He is extremely conscientious and his whole purpose is to ensure that anybody that stays there or visits Scotland has the most amazing time. He went far and above to ensure that the house was ready for us even allowing us to do an early checkin. Before our arrival he provided us with numerous documents indicating the best restaurants the best activities maps of Scotland and other documents that were very very helpful.

The house is exactly as it is represented on the website. There were absolutely no surprises. It was just as beautiful as the picture show. It is in a fantastic location and is very comfortable.

I highly recommend this property to anybody that is visiting Edinburgh for the first time or coming back to visit again.

The property owner really went far and above to ensure that we had a little gift basket as well as food in the refrigerator and all the documents that we needed to ensure that we had the best time ever.

He was also very prompt and all of his responses and very accommodating in any way. I 1000% recommend this property

Location

Car: not necessary

Right in the centre of Edinburgh only a 10 minute walk to princes street, and Waverley train station. Located in a very safe exclusive development, so ideal for families as good part of town to walk at any time of the day or night. Off the main roads so quiet with no passing traffic. The penthouse has its own parking, however once you've parked your car you probably won't use it as sightseeing can easily be done by foot. Excellent public transport only a couple of minutes walk away. Ideal location for sightseeing. The Playhouse theatre, and an Omni Multiplex cinema complex, are only a 5 minute walk away. Many restaurants, bars, shops etc as all within short walking distance. Supermarket only a 2 minute walk away.
