“Fabulous scenic view of Edinburgh city skyline”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 for a stay in July 2012
people found this review helpful

We stay in apartments often when we are overseas. This is definitely the most comfortable we have ever found, at a price that is a real bargain. We needed to spend two weeks in Edinburgh for business and were going to go the "lazy" route, staying in a Marriott Residence Inn. However, they would not guarantee a non-smoking room! So at the last minute, we were stuck looking for an apartment that was not already rented.
Our needs: Definitely non-smoking. Very quiet.
We lucked out. Grahame Jack had just decided to put his apartment up for rental for the summer season, and we were his first customers.
This rental turned out to be fabulous. Grahame is a real gentleman. The apartment was light-filled and spacious, with a fully modern kitchen with all the necessary utensils. We were never once bothered by noise. The bed was oh-so-comfortable and one whole wall was glass, so that you could look out in the morning and see the city dawn with the majestic castle reigning supreme. As the sun set (well after 10 at the height of the summer), we could see the lights of the city gradually come on. This was post-card living at its finest.
We were just a bit out of the city center, which is what we wanted, but public bus routes a two minute walk away gave us all the easy access we needed. Indeed, the city bus system is so good that we were able to get to many, many places outside the city just by hopping on the bus right near Grahame's place.
We definitely hope to stay there again, and we would recommend the apartment.
