The apartment is beautifully furnished and so comfortable including a fabulous bathroom with a very grand bath and double shower. It is in a perfect location with a never ending supply of bars and restaurants, two perfect examples being Teuchters and Voyage of Buck in very close proximity for fantastic food and drinks and lovely staff. Also a very short walk to Princes Street leading onto the Royal Mile. Andy the owner couldn't be more helpful providing endless suggestions of places to visit and pubs and restaurants to sample. We had the best holiday to celebrate my daughter's 21st in a very beautiful city and we will definitely be back!!
The apartment is located within a 15 min walk of most of the major attractions with good bus and tram connections if you need them. The apartment is on a quite side street with a good mix of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops nearby (there are also a couple of small supermarkets). Andy provided a helpful list of restaurants and pubs across the city The apartment has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard, the photos don't lie. There was a useful starter pack of provisions and fresh flowers in the kitchen when we arrived. The beds are comfortable and the heavy curtains keep what little noise there is out. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine and enough crockery and cutlery so you don't have to wash everything between meals (which is a bugbear of mine). Andy was an excellent host and answered our questions promptly both before we arrived and when our plans were changed while we were there. We would love to go back again.
We enjoyed a lovely break in Edinburgh and found the location really handy for shops and restaurants. The whole area had a lovely atmosphere and the street itself was filled with pubs and independent retailers.
We found the apartment really comfortable and the decor very tasteful. We all slept well, and there was no disturbance from the pubs.
We used Andy's list and ate in some lovely restaurants and walked to Princes Street and back many times a day. It's also easy to walk to the Grassmarket area from William Street.
We would love to visit again!
Located just minutes walk form the new town, the old town and Haymarket, this apartment is very centrally located in a quiet side street. The apartment is on the third floor of a beautiful building which luckily has a selection of pubs downstairs.
Andy was an excellent host, he had left some provisions for us to have a cuppa before trekking back out again, we arrived later in the evening and he was available at any time via SMS for any questions (luckily we had none).
In the area itself, several pubs nearby, Teuchters, the Melville and Voyage of Buck - all serving lovely food and genuinely nice atmospheres for a few quiet drinks.
Princes Street is literally minutes walk away and there is a co-op and Sainsburys just around the corner.
What we most enjoyed about the apartment was the location and the decor, it is beautifully decorated to a very high standard. Beds were very comfortable and the heavy curtains, maybe they worked too well - leading to a few unexpected lie ins :)
Andy - thanks for everything - you now have 5 people who will most certainly be back again!
