“wonderful apartment”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We loved this apartment and its warm welcoming ambience its on a quiet street 15mins walk from Princes Street . The apartment is just like the pictures , beautiful stylish with all you need for a wonderful holiday.
We had hectic days out followed by cosy nights in with a bottle of wine and the fire aglow we felt so at home and comfortable it was difficult to leave at the end of our week.
We have already made plans to return. Thank you Stuart and Wendy .

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It's great to hear you had an enjoyable break and are indeed planning to return.
Our guests do seem to appreciate how close it is to all that Edinburgh has to offer and also enjoy the sunny courtyard and cosy fireside. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit!

Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

It felt like home at the apartment. Stuart was very helpful throughout. I was accompanying an elderly couple to Edinburgh and Stuart was very kind to allow us to checkin from earlier. The bubbly and sweet left for us were icing on the cake. Definitely will back to the flat

“Stunning bit of luxury in the heart of Edinburgh”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Beautiful flat and ideally placed just a short walk from Princes Street and the Royal Mile! We stayed during August for the festival and were thrilled by the comfortable and luxurious accommodation and little touches when we arrived, including a lovely bottle of Fizz! Definitely beats the usual hostel and at not that different a cost either; fantastic value for money!

The flat is a great size, we easily fit three of us in to share and there was everything you needed to feel at home. Can not recommend this enough and will definitely be keen to return!!

We really appreciate your review … thank you! We pride ourselves on the attention to detail that we have become known for. We are pleased you thought the apartment was fantastic value for money …. We agree that it is! Our aim is for our guests to have a chance to enjoy everything Edinburgh offers throughout the year, but also get some time to chill out, kick back, and relax in comfort and style at the apartment. We would really be delighted to welcome you again! Stuart & Wendy

We are delighted you chose 28A Cumberland Street for your first trip together! We know it took a lot of organising to combine arrival times from Dubai, but we are pleased it has all worked out well for you. Thank you for leaving such a detailed review. We pride ourselves on the little, personal touches that will make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. Yes, there is a dilemma everywhere in Edinburgh regarding parking. Many of our guests who choose to bring their car during the week have used the free park and ride facilities and travel by tram or bus into the city centre. Alternatively it is possible to pre book car parks which works out more reasonable. Our weekend guests are lucky enough to have free street parking on their doorstep! A definite bonus! We know your partner left her hair straighteners behind, and we were pleased to be able to reunite them with her at your convenience before she returned to Dubai! Perhaps we can welcome you again in the future?! Regards, Stuart & Wendy

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We know you had a great time with your 2 teenage daughters …. Edinburgh has something for every age group! We took a long time to choose both the kingsize bed and the sofa bed, because we wanted to ensure our guests have a good night's sleep! We pride ourselves on offering excellent accommodation at a reasonable price. We would be so pleased to welcome you all again in the future! Stuart & Wendy

Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed with family for 3 nights and it was home from home with a few extras! Really good location with 10 to 15 minute walk to Princes Street depending on your fitness :) I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to be in the centre of Edinburgh but also with home comforts. Very quiet street and lovely courtyard to sit and relax after a day's sightseeing.

Thank you so much for leaving feedback. We are delighted you had a great stay and also enjoyed the location … we believe the apartment offers the best of everything Edinburgh can offer - peacefully set within the UNESCO world heritage site but within walking distance of the busy city centre, and fashionable Stockbridge. Many guests appreciate the courtyard for their morning coffee or evening gin before heading out again! We would love to welcome you and the family back again in future, S&W.
