My husband and I rented this lovely one bedroom apartment in Broughton for the Fringe Festival. It's close location tmakes it ideal to allow you to fully enjoy the Fringe. We managed 33 shows in the seven days we were there. Although it is possible to walk into the town, there is a bus stop just around the corner with regular buses to get into and out of town. There is a supermarket close by and a lovely cafe for breakfast.
The flat itself is lovely. We were welcomed warmly on our arrival. Lorna had asked me to let her know when we wanted to check in and as we were travelling by train I rang her just before we arrived at Waverly. She was waiting as we arrived and showed us around the flat including going through the basics regarding equipment and health and safety. We immediately built up a rapport with her and felt at home straightaway.
The flat is compact but has plenty of room for two people. The kitchen is well equipped and there was ample tea, coffee and milk plus some biscuits whihc were very welcome after our long journey. The sitting room / dining area is well furnished with some extremely comfortable chairs which we sat in rather than the settee. The wi-fi connected without problem. There were plenty of books, local guides and leaflets including maps should you need them. There was plenty of storage space in the bed room with a very comfortable bed.
The morning sun floods into the bedroom and sitting room however the blackout blinds ensure that you do not get woken up by this. There is a little bench outside the front door with a small garden area. Nice to have an early morning cup of tea in the sunshine.
The area itself has a village feel and is very quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt as if we were home from home. We would highly recommend it to our friends and family and look forward to staying again when we next visit the Fringe Festival.
Thank you Lorna for you very warm welcome and for the ease of booking and contact with you leading up to our visit . Thank you also for your speedy return of the deposit. All of these things combine to make this a highly recommended holiday rental.

We have a great experience of sel-fcartering flats in Edinburgh, and we can't imagine a better flat than this one.

Great location and comfortable
This is a lovely apartment in an ideal location - near shops and restaurants and only a short walk to the bus stops to get into the centre of Edinburgh (£1.50 each way) - there were 2 (Dad and Daughter) staying with a 2.5 year old and it was perfect for us - don't be put off by the stairs as they had good railings and if I can get up them ( I have MS) and my pregnant daughter with a 2 year old you'll probably be fine. It is smart and comfortable but not so "smart" that you're in rear of harming everything as it is well thought out and robust where it matters. The staff of Edinburgh-Flats are very nice and efficient as well. The flat is also near the Botanic gardens and other parks so a wonderful place to spend time in as well as the "City". Thanks for the lovely long weekend we spent there - would happily return.

Good Central Flat
Very comfortable 3 bedroom apartment very close to the Royal Mile and Princes Street. Beds were comfy, landlord was good about helping us set up TV, etc. (The only thing, we couldn't find a grocery store too close by, we were on foot, to replenish supplies like paper goods.) Otherwise there were restaurants close by and we even had take-away one night delivered.The living area was very cosy after a long day of walking around Edinburge. I can't say enough about the wonderful location.The owners were also very helpful.

nice central apartment
We really enjoyed our stay during the RyderCup. The location is great, service by Lenore was also very pleasent.
The queen size beds were a bit small, but the beds itself were very good.
There can be some noice from a club around the street.

Very well located flat
Situated on a beautiful old crescent this is a lovely flat with huge living room and massive main bedroom. Other rooms more than adequate. A minutes walk from Stockbridge and 10/15 mins to Princes Street.
