“Location , location, location”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

the best thing about this flat is the location, as it is very close to almost all the important sights in the city, including the amazing park of Holyrood Palace, where you almost feel like you are in the Scottish Highlands - and only a 15 minute walk away from the flat! You can also walk up to Carlton Hill very easily, and the train station is a 10 minute walk away, so perfect for day trips to Glasgow etc.

The flat itself is quite small, and in my opinion more suitable for two people though it can sleep more, but it's compact, well-equipped,clean and bright. It wouldn't be the best choice for anyone who rates their privacy very highly, as it is on the ground floor and there are public spaces outside the windows of the bedroom and living room (so you can't walk around in the nip!) but that is the only small downside. Stuart who showed us around was extremely friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay.

“Fantastic apartment... great location!”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well what can I say!

The apartment was absolutely brilliant! It is located close to a number of attractions (Castle, Royal Mile) and has great access to the both the New and Old Town.

Every morning, I got to wake up to the sound of bagpipes playing in the street below!

Jennifer was very helpful and actually emailed to make arrangements for her to drop the key off (I had forgotten in the excitement)

Just one thing to note....after a long day of walking around exploring the stairs are challenge, so make sure whole party is fit!

I think this reviewer has got the Tolbooth apartment confused with another they stayed at in Edinburgh, it has no chairs as it is a ground floor apartment and it is also in a very quiet location approx 100 metres off the Royal Mile.

“Recommend!”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

My family stayed there for four nights (kids ages 7 and 9). Great location and all facilities of this place. It was the perfect size for our family of four that gave the parents some privacy and the kids their own space on the pull out couch. Kitchen was a perfect little area for my husband who likes to wake up early to read and have a cup of coffee without waking anyone else. Bathroom was very clean. Quiet, quaint and cute neighboring area. We liked being on the quieter and less crowded part of the Royal Mile. The Tesco Express is nearby and is a great place to buy a few groceries. Nearby to walk/hike up to areas for great views or to watch the sunrise and sunset in the winter.

“Excellent flat; clean, warm & comfortable, central.”
Reviewed December 7, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We enjoyed 5 nights stay at the flat. The flat is centrally located and ideal for shops, eating out and all the attractions of Edinburgh. We found the flat to be extremely clean and well equipped. Both master bed and sofa bed (where our children aged 10 and 7 years slept) were very comfortable and the shower was good with plenty of hot water. The secure parking was an added bonus.

“Location Location Location”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. Meeting and getting keys was very straight forward and informative and the free car park is a welcome bonus in the heart of the city. The location just off the Royal Mile means all the major attractions are within walking distance making this the perfect base to visit Edinburgh. All things considered and for what we paid, it really is an excellent choice.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely ground floor apartment just off the Royal mile near the Holyrood end. Very quiet modern apartments with bonus underground car park. Lovely walk up the hill to the castle with many individual and tourist shops to stop in to break up the hill. Its about 7-10mins walk to Scott Monument on Princes street.
Dave was very helpful when arriving. Process very simple when leaving the property too.
All rooms clean with the basics in the kitchen. Linen was of good quality which aided a good nights sleep. Teenager found the sofa bed very comfortable too.
Wifi worked in all rooms much to the delight of the teenager.
Very good for a short break.
