About Derek Gibb

Pillowstops is run my husband and wife team Catherine and Derek Gibb.

"As a family we have used self catering properties around the world for our own holidays and know how important it is to make sure that when you arrive you are not disappointed with your choice of holiday accommodation. The two main areas of disappointment that we have found are location and standard!

The apartments that we offer are situated in Edinburgh's no 1 historic tourist street being the Royal Mile and our apartments are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard exactly as we would want to find ourselves when going on holiday.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.

Derek Gibb purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Derek Gibb chose Old Town

Just want to let you know that my family and I had a wonderful time in Edinburgh and felt your apartment was very comfortable and had all the things we required to feel at home. Thank you very much for your hospitality". FP USA

"What a great apartment almost too nice to leave the kitchen window when you can sit in the sun watching everyone on the Royal Mile" AB Weymouth

"Mesmerising scene from window seats. Location so convenient. Apartment very comfortable and airy. Will return for longer next year as so much to see and do". ZJ Leicestershire.
