“Cosy and smart flat, ideally located for Central Edinburgh”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Very helpful owners who were quick to respond and well organised. We liked getting the key in advance so we could arrive at a time which was convenient for us.
The flat was easy to find, we were able to park the car and walk into town.
Liked having choice of bath or shower.
The beds were comfortable.
The flat is clean and well looked after, with everything we needed.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us! Edinburgh is an easy place to get around from the flat as you say - on foot or on the bus. We were down last week and they are testing the trams - not long now! Your comments about the cleanliness etc are appreciated. Come back and stay with us soon.

“Lovely flat at top of Leith walk, convenient for shops, theatre and sights”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the flat for Christmas. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. There are 2 mini supermarkets nearby which stay open late and a choice of restaurants at top of Leith walk. You can easily walk to Princes Street in 10 minutes and if it is cold there are lots of bus routes to all parts of Edinburgh. The owners are very thoughtful and even left us a Christmas card!

“A comfortable & well located apartment.”
Reviewed 30 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Easy to book, the key to the property was received in ample time prior to visit.
The welcome pack including flowers was a nice touch to a very clean & comfortable apartment.
It was nice to be provided with bath sheets instead of tiny bath towels.
Well located, 10 min walk to Princes St with some interesting shops in streets close by. The Bus stop is located at the end of the road.
Edinburgh is a beautiful city with an abundance of sights & activities.

“Perfect location for a comfortable City break.”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Travelled to Edinburgh by train from Yorkshire for a weekend break.
We found the apartment to be perfect for all our needs.
The apartment is very well situated within ten minutes walk from the train station. If you don't fancy the walk the number 22 bus leaves directly from across the road outside the station to the end of Macdonald Road, or lots of taxis available in the station.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and has everything you would need for a comfortable break. A quiet location, two bathrooms, comfortable settees, comfortable beds, good central heating, broadband and some very nice touches (fresh flowers, fresh fruit basket and tea and coffee with milk in the fridge on arrival) all made for a very good weekend.
Lots of bars & restaurants within walking distance of the apartment.
Booking the apartment was a smooth process with excellent and prompt attention from the owners Terry & Ann.
I would certainly recommend this apartment.

“Excellence in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We were absolutely delighted with everything about the apartment. It was spotless on arrival with thoughtful extras to welcome us like the fresh flowers and the milk for tea and coffee, fruit and biscuits. The private off street parking was a blessing as we parked our hire car and forgot about it for the week. It was a quick bus ride to the centre of town and very walkable as well. The co-op and tescos were a few minutes round the corner and Vittoria's up the road was a delight. We were warm and cosy after our days out in the city and couldn't have wished for a better spot in our first visit to Edinburgh.
