If you are looking to stay right on the Royal Mile and near the castle, this is an excellent option. Of all 3 properties we rented on our Great Britain tour, we slept the best in this one. The beds are VERY comfortable. The master bed is large (American "Queen" size), and the room stays nice and dark and very quiet. The room with the 2 twin beds was perfect for my teen boys. They had plenty of space and found the room to be dark and very quiet as well. The living room is really large with 2 nice big leather sofas, plenty of lamps, modern TV, dining table and windows. The kitchen and baths are very small, but that's ok, they are completely modern and in excellent working order. My only wish was that that the washing machine also had a drying function. We ended up handing our laundry all around the heaters and one hanging rack. Note: you have to ascend 2 flights of stairs, and one is curvy and a bit tricky with luggage (no elevator option). But then again, you have to climb up and down steps to get around the Royal Mile and Old Town Ediburgh anyhow.
We spent 4 nites at this wonderful apartment located next to Edinburgh Castle and in walking distance to lots to see & do. Many restaurants are close-by and the apartment is clean, well-equipped & comfortable. There were 4 adults in our group and we had plenty of room & privacy. I highly recommend this very lovely apartment. If I ever return to Edinburgh, I will try to stay here again! Debra
Lovely apartment, spacious, spotless and modern. Location beside Castle and Royal Mile was great. Near lots of other attractions also, Greyfriars, National Museum, Camera Obscure and the Edinburgh Whiskey Tours nearby. Lots of restaurants also in area. Mary left milk, juice and other supplies for our arrival which was really appreciated. We did not leave Edinburgh until the afternoon on the day we left and Mary kindly let us leave our bags at the apartment for a while. Would love to visit Edinburgh again and would definitely like to return here to stay.
This apartment is nicely located to visit the important areas in Edinburgh. The owner is absolutely lovely and very helpful.
The linens are wonderful as are the towels.
Coffee, tea and cookies as well as milk and juice to get us started!
We would definitely recommend a stay!
We a family of 6 stayed at this lovely apt. it fit the bill of exploring The Royal mile. It was steps from the Castle and meters from a great little pub The Castle Arms with good food ,drinks and service. We were met upon arrival by Mary and all questions were answered and tips given. Thx Mary see you again
