About Susie Black

I'm a Personal Trainer in Scotland. My work is very flexible which means I can keep in touch with you to make sure you have a lovely stay.

Susie Black purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Susie Black chose City of Edinburgh

This flat is within 5 minutes walking distance of the Grassmarket and Royal Mile.

There are many restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and bus routes close by.

The apartment looks out over Arthur's Seat, The Salisbury Craggs, the Palace of Holyrood House and Dynamic Earth.

We purchased this property with the specific desire to rent it to holiday makers. This means we've already considered the location, space, views and storage you'll need. I hope you feel we chose well!

What makes this apartment unique

What is a City Break?

It's a lover's getaway.

It's the farewell of your child to university or the celebration of their graduation.

It's the weight of a family's expectation or your child's good nights' sleep.

It's the haven between important job interviews or a home from home when work takes you from loved ones.

It's a chance to reminisce, return, retread old paths or discover new interests and loves.

It's a party with friends in a truly international capital city.

It's an investment in your hope, money and time. We understand that it's important to you. It's important to us, too. Wherever you end up, have a great stay in Edinburgh, our favourite city.

Great location, but cold

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment is clean and the location is very convenient. Our only complaint was how long it took to warm up (24+ hrs). We had stay in one room with the space heater until it reached a comfortable temperature, around day 3.

Owner's Response: Please accept our apologies for a lack of heating.The radiators are very quick to work so they must have been turned down low. We could have resolved that very quickly if you had contacted us during your stay. My warmest regards, Susie

10min walk from everything Edinburgh can offer!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 days at this very central, convenient flat. My husband and I found the flat to be warm and had all the little things you may have forgotten (in my case hairdryer) The flat was light and although we visited in December we were warm and comfortable. Waking up to see Arthur's seat was great. Unfortunately we didn't have time to stomp up this famous "extinct volcano" but I'm positive we will be visiting Edinburgh again so it's on the next visits itinerary. Can recommend a visit to Edinburgh in December - so much to see and do and beautiful xmas markets with lots of artisan craftsmen selling their wares. Loved it.

Great location!

We loved the views of the park across the street and of Arthur’s Seat in back. Convenient to shops, restaurants, and the Royal Mile. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Although the location is not right in the heart of the city, it is in easy walking distance to the Royal Mile and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. This apartment is the best we stayed in. The view if Arthur’s Seat from our bedroom was amazing. The property was immaculate and having a washing machine at this point in in our itinerary was so convenient. We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family.
