My husband and I stayed here with another couple for three nights. The apartment is within walking distance to many must-sees, especially Edinburgh Castle! Many, many great places to eat and shop close by. Mary was very easy to communicate with and provided thorough instructions. We so appreciated the little details and how clean it was. It’s such a cute apartment! Certainly made for a comfortable stay.
The apartment is one floor up fairly narrow stars. This wasn’t an issue for us, but it’s something to consider.
We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh!
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this adorable apartment. The accommodations were exactly as stated and the beds were very comfortable.
A word of warning, there’s a flight of stairs up to the apartment building, a very dim interior, and then a circular staircase to the actual apartment. Heavy luggage required some major effort on our part to get it to our room.
The location definitely made up for the extra effort. We walked to all the tourist attractions in Old Town and enjoyed several great restaurants nearby. Thai Orchid Restaurant was outstanding and Biddy Mulligans’s served really great pub food (Pim’s and lemonade!) in a fun atmosphere.
Mary is a welcoming host and greeted us most warmly.We had a wonderful time in Edinburgh, the apartment is perfectly situated and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy the Edinburgh Fringe. Well equipt with all modern utilities, I would recommend a stay here.
After an horrendous journey to Edinburgh due to lightning strikes on the railway lines, my friend and I arrived at the apartment five hours later than we had planned. On entering the building, we thought it looked dark and unwelcoming...But please don't let that put you off. We walked up one flight of stairs to get to Mary's apartment and when we opened the door, we were stunned by how beautiful it was! The décor was classy and it was spotlessly clean. The rooms were a good size and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, including tea, coffee, milk and delicious shortbread biscuits, which we really enjoyed after our long journey. The location of the apartment was excellent!! It was just round the corner from the castle and close to the centre of the city. We really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh and the apartment was like a comfortable home from home. We could not recommend Mary's apartment highly enough!! And we will definitely book again. Thanks Mary, your apartment is fantastic, as is the gorgeous city of Edinburgh.
My family of three from Florida stayed here for a long weekend in June. The apartment is everything it says it it. The host Mary was easy to communicate with and quick to respond to questions. The location is perfectly situated near the Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, and the Grassmarket. The beds were super comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the water pressure was great. The WiFi was fast and easy to connect to. The kitchen was adorable with everything you need to make your own meals. We loved our stay here. The only thing to make it better would be if we could have stayed longer.
Four of us stayed in the apartment for four days in May/June 2018. Location is perfect for the old town - the castle is literally next door, up some steps. The apartment was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable, and a good size. Communication about check in with the owner by email was really good. I would definitely book again for a future visit.
Parking in the street is by permit only. A friendly traffic warden did let me unload on the yellow line outside for 10 minutes. I found a really good secure underground car park in Riego Street, 10 minutes walk away. Much cheaper than the NCP at Castle Terrace, and only 5 minutes further away.
Had a good meal at Maxie’s nearby, on the terrace, overlooking the old town. Also had a good Italian meal at O’Oliveiro on Grassmarket.
Castle, Royal Yacht Britannia and Camera Obscura were all big hits with my family (three generations of us). Brilliant holiday, in a fantastic apartment.
