Quality accommodation in excellent location
We stayed at this luxury apartment for Hogmanay 2014 and would highly recommend booking this property. The apartment is beautifully presented with owner Charlotte's attention to detail evident, from the care taken to retain the properties fabulous original features, to the quality of the soft furnishings and appliances throughout. Location for exploring Edinburgh and surrounding areas is excellent - just a few minutes walk from Princess Street, theatres, High street stores, restaurants, bars, and supermarkets. The booking process, communication, and warm welcome we received from owner Charlotte prior to, during, and following our stay was also faultless. This really was a home from home for us and we look forward to returning very soon.

Cosy flat on Leith Walk
Had a great stay here two months over Christmas with work. Everything you need, good location, off street parking. Really lovely lounge with cosy fire and great sofas

Well sited flat, well equipped, comfortable and with excellent views at the rear.

Central Apartment, Very Cosy, A lot of Charm and Character
We stayed in this property in early January 2015. The property within an easy 10 minute walk from Waverly Station. The apartment is just off Edinburgh's main highstreet with plenty of high quality shops and restaurants on the doorstep. The apartment is warm and spacious with plenty of victorian character. The kitchen was well equiped and the welcome pack was an unexpected but very thoughtful aid to settling in when you first arrive. The main attractions of Edinburgh are within easy walking distance. Despite it's central location the apartment is quiet and it is easy to get a good night's sleep. Marsha was very friendly and helpful. She was always prompt in responding to queries and facilitated an easy check in and check out process. Overall booking and staying in this aparment was an excellent experience and we would happily do so again.

Absolutely brilliant central flat
We stayed here recently - what a gem! Ideal location on the Royal Mile - in the centre of things but just out of the way enough to be quiet. Comfortable, well equipped and landlady Sharon was extremely helpful and reasonable. Will definitely use this place again for a return visit... :-)

Great location, clean & tidy apartment
We stayed here for 3 days, we are 5 adults and found there was ample room. The apartment contained all the facilities we needed, the only issue was the sofa bed as the mattress is very uncomfortable. However, we benefited from being within close proximity to the city centre & close to many restaurants & supermarkets. The apartment was clean, tidy and warm. Great to have the use of a washing machine & dryer too. Really enjoyed the use of the accomodation itself.
The only thing you need to be aware of is expensive to park on the road (£2.60 an hour) but this is city centre parking after all! On a positive note, parking was free from 6:30pm to 8:30am. The flat itself was reasonably priced so that made up for the parking costs!
I would stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others looking for a short stay.
We had no problems eating in the kitchen and I would not describe this as a bedsit. Although one of the bedrooms does double up as the main living room, this wasn't a problem for us.

Good central flat
We enjoyed very much our stay in this flat.
It is very comfortable, and well suited for a family, since the two bedrooms and bathrooms are at opposite sides. There are areas to hang out together or separately on both sides; the living room on one side, and the eat-in kitchen with a nice window with a view and the entrée with a small seating area at the other. The entrée has a skylight, which made it very bright, airy and agreeable, even in winter.
It is on a quiet street, opposite a park. There are shops and restaurants right around the corner. If you like walking, as we do, it is just the right distance into the center of the city. Or you can take nearby buses that run frequently. It is just a few minutes away from a train station, if you are interested in taking an excursion into Glasgow or other parts.
The staff that greeted us was friendly and helpful. The materials they placed in the flat explained very well how everything worked. We had no problems, so we did not have any further contact, other than to say goodbye. But we felt if we had needed help, it would have been provided promptly.
We loved Edinburgh, which has many interesting sights, restaurants and fun things to do. Our stay was during the Hogmanay New Years festival, which certainly lived up to its billing as the world’s largest street party.
All in all, a good choice, much better than a hotel. And a great vacation.

Very good apartment
We very much enjoyed our stay over the Hogmanay period at this apartment. It was perfectly located just off the Royal Mile. Excellent tenants in Rachel, John and Gill - very welcoming and helpful. Would certainly recommend to anyone and stay again.

Great central location
The Abbey hill flat was in a great location just a 15 minute walk in to town. There is a sainburys just across the road to purchase all your essentials also several small local shops leading up to the centre aswell as local pubs.
The flat itself was lovely, looked just like the pictures online and we weren't disappointed.
There was a lovely lad that met us at the flat with the keys, Charlie. He went through everything with us and explained where all local amenities were to give us a head start on our trip. The booking and contact with Edinburgh flats was very straight forward and informative.
I would highly recommend staying here for any short break. There were four of us for four nights and it ticked all the boxes. The only thing that I would say as it was two couples the second room is a twin room but it wasn't a major issue. We booked up knowing that anyway! Also there was only one full length mirror in the flat which was in the twin room and you know what us woman are like when we are getting ready, we need to do our, hair, make up and check out our outfits so it was a case of getting ready at different times. But again no major issue there, just a little inconvenient.
I would definitely return here and most probably will in the near future :)!!
Thanks for making our trip to Edinburgh a memorable one, such a beautiful city!
