“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed October 31, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was such a lovely place to stay - a beautiful, spacious and airy apartment. Very comfortable beds, newly renovated to a nice standard. It's a great location, very central but quiet. The little cafe in the photo did a great breakfast too. Margo was very welcoming. All in all, a great 3 day stay in a lovely city.

“Fabulous - highly recommend”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

My daughter, cousin & I stayed in this apartment last year (a long overdue review) and thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The quiet, leafy location is perfect - an easy walk to all the sights. Margot was a lovely host whose beautiful,roomy apartment is simply and tastefully furnished with everything (and more) we needed. If I have the good fortune to visit Edinburgh again I will definitely stay here, and would recommend it to others.

“Charming apartment in the heart of Edinburgh”

Spent five days here with my wife and daughter and it was the perfect place for us. Margot was extremely accommodating, gave us good directions and met us when we arrived. The apartment is in a very quiet street, but very near to good eateries(10-15 minute walk) and within a 20-25 minute walk to Waverly Station and the Royal Mile. Perfect location for attending the Tattoo and the Fringe Festival. There is a very nice coffee shop around the corner worth taking advantage of. Apartment was clean and 2 bed/2 bath arrangement is perfect for families. We all highly recommend Margot's place.

“A Gem of a Place”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed at the flat with our children (9 + 12) and my mother as we had tickets to the tattoo and wanted to see what the Fringe was all about. Our expectations were high based on the photos but I can honestly say the real thing was even better. The flat was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and the personal welcome from the owner was a lovely touch. Based on a quiet street but well within walking distance of all the action we had an amazing time and the only time we couldn't walk was on a visit to Leith to see the Royal Yacht, however with all of the main bus services within 2 mins walk this was a doddle. Would highly recommend.

“Great Accommodation in Edinburgh”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Wonderful welcome by Margot the owner and the apartment was ideal for our stay. Extremely clean, all the facilities and equipment that a family would need whilst holidaying. Convenient location although peaceful and leafy outlook. Would recommend to others.

“Our stay was just too short.”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The flat was lovely. Updated kitchen, and baths. Beds were comfortable. We found it to be spacious for three people. Perfect for our stay in Edinburgh.

The location worked well for us. We walked all over the center of the city from the flat but, public transportation is nearby.

The owner is wonderful to work with, warm and accommodating.

Renting a flat is a very nice alternative to staying in a hotel.

Myself and three others stayed in this lovely apartment over the New Year period. From the very beginning the very gracious owner Margot was more than accommodating and regularly kept in contact. The apartment is very easily found and within walking distance to the city. There are also several shops/ amenities within a few minutes walk away also. The apartment itself is very homely, warm and has everything you would need. Will definitely consider this apartment again if I ever returned to Edinburgh :)
