We stayed in the ground floor flat, G/F, for a late-autumn break in Edinburgh, and had a perfect stay. The flat was spacious and attractive, and had everything we needed (small kitchen, washing machine, radio, etc), plus lots of handy extras (a good selection of books, a couple of gas fires). Brian also supplied us with milk, tea, coffee, juice and cereal, which we thought was very thoughtful. After showing us the flat, he left us to our own devices for the week, which was lovely, although we knew he was downstairs if we needed.
The flats are ideally suited for exploring Edinburgh - the centre is a 15-20 min. walk away, or there are plenty of buses, including ones to Leith. Local shops in Stockbridge were great - a great butchers, bakers and cheesemongers. Plenty of lovely pubs, too, serving quality food. We're already planning our trip back next year!
