“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The apartment is very clean, comfortable and very spacious (3 good sized double bedrooms) the bed linen and the towels smelled wonderful . The location is also great, just 2 minutes walking to the Royal Mile and 10 min away from the main train station. Everything was very well organized, was very easy to get the key and all the informations that we needed we found in the folders that Liz, the owner, keeps in the apartment.

“Perfect location and a great apartment”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed here for a weekend and it is the perfect location to visit the sights. Nice sized rooms, clean, all the cooking utensils you'd need and overall really comfortable.

Also, the owner was very helpful and very quick to respond to emails. Would definitely recommend.

“spacious, quiet apartment one block from royal mile”
Reviewed September 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Such a convenient location to everything in the city! Free parking allowed us to park our car easily, and the apartment location made it possible to walk to everything during our 4 day stay in Edinburgh. Apartment was clean, bright and spacious.

“Save your time and book Canongate Apartment!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I spent many hours looking at flats before our trip to Edinburgh in June, and we hope to save the next person some time by highly recommending Canongate Apartment. We were travelling with our mothers who are both in their mid sixties and our four year old daughter, so the pressure was on to find a very suitable place to stay. The location is about a minute walk from the Royal Mile and is very close to Holyrood Palace, Scottish Parliament building and Our Dynamic Earth. The apartment is situated in a quiet area yet very close to Waverly train station so if you travel with a backpack and not lots of luggage like we did you could easily save on cab fare (which wasn't that much) and just walk to the apartment. The nearest car rental location is at the train station as well if you plan on renting a car.

The apartment itself was very clean and well looked after. There were three good size bedrooms, a well supplied kitchen, and a comfortable sitting area with two couches and a table for eating at. It worked very well and we never felt crowded at all. There is free wifi and a list of instructions to make sure everything runs smoothly during your stay. The owners email you a list covering everything you need to know as well before you arrive so that you can hit the ground running once you are there. Things have been made very simple for the guests (which I am sure helps make things simple for the owners).

The owners are very nice people who we found to be extremely helpful when I locked my daypack in the apartment upon checking out forty-five minutes before our train was to depart for Inverness. Within fifteen minutes of calling them he was there to let me in and retrieve my bag, and would have driven me to the train station, but because it is so close it was faster to run/walk than fight traffic in his car. I owe Stuart and Liz a big thank-you for this help.

I highly recommend this apartment if a three bedroom works for you, and as well the owners have two others you should check out to see if they might work for you. I can't say what kind of condition they are in, however, after the experience we had in this apartment with these people, I think I could safely guess that the other properties are also in great shape. The website is www.cityapartments-edinburgh.com, and for any info you can email Liz Arnott at: info@edinburghnewtownapartment.com.
