“Perfection, could not ask for better”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What an excellent place to stay. From the communication with Liz the owner who was welcoming, warm and accomodating to the location.
The carpark is underground and secure,
The bedding is crisp and fresh.
The ground floor location is ideal
There are 2 bathrooms and the photos on booking.com do not do it full justice. The heating adjustable, there are 2 hairdryers, handwash, shower gel, fully equipped kitchen a real home from home.
the location is amazing. 5 minutes stroll to the Palace of Holyrood and maybe 15 minutes at the most to the Castle.
I could not fault this accomodation!

“Perfect place”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented both apartments Blair Angus and Blair Atholl for a family reunion celebrating my mum's 80th birthday and everything was perfect. It had to suit fairly demanding requirements of a group of 8 people aged between 19 and 80, and delivered on every count. Really well equipped (wifi, kitchen etc) comfortable, modern and lovely touches such as welcome shortbread and cava. Parking facilities as well. The location is just ideal - a few minutes' walk to Waverley Station and a minute off the Royal Mile, couldn't be better for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants and pubs etc, but surprisingly and happily quiet once inside the apartment building for the night. Best way to stay especially if in a group as it's a real home from home, and so much preferable to hotel or B&B as you come and go whenever it suits you. All the dealings with Liz and co. went smoothly even though all bookings and correspondence done from overseas. Highly, highly recommend!

“Very nice and conveniently located apartment”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My mom and I had a great stay at Blair Angus, The apartment is very conviently located off the Royal Mile and just minutes from the Waverley Train Station and the Hollyrood Castle.

Although the apartment is in the centre of town, it is on a quiet side street with little street traffic. The apartment is spacious.

Liz has been very helpful with questions that I have (and trust me, I have a lot of questions), which also made our stay very pleasant. Will definitly recommend this apartment to travellers.

“Great location with comfort and economy”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I traveled with my husband, two tween kids, and mom in June and we stayed at Blair Angus and were very pleased with everything about it. The size and convenience given the cost beat out any possible hotel for us. It was very relaxing to come home and have a snack or fix our own breakfast, plus the Royal Mile and all it offers were just down the street. The apartment was clean, roomy enough for five, well equipped and mostly quiet. Saturday night was a bit loud off and on outside but other nights were fine. The master bedroom really needs darker curtains though since it stays light so long in the summer. The other curtains were all darker.

Liz also went above and beyond when we needed help with a non-apartment issue and really saved me! I stupidly forgot all my medicines at home and needed to get a new prescription on the weekend and she found an open clinic so that I didn't have to resort to an emergency room. Once that was taken care of, we had a great stay in Edinburgh.

“Great location, lovely apartment”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for 3 nights with husband and teenage son during the half term. Perfect location, easy walk to all the main attractions and the old part of the city. Apartment was very smart and clean and the welcome pack was just what we needed after a long drive. Great secure parking in the building complex.

“Great location, well fitted out apartment, would definitely stay again.”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My husband was born and brought up in Edinburgh and he was really impressed with how central the location was especially as parking was included. We were there for a long weekend and managed to walk everywhere. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well fitted out down to torch and umbrellas plus thoughtful touches such as milk, tea, coffee and even a bottle of cava. The beds were very comfortable and the linen high quality, we all slept well. We were there with our two teenagers and and no longer want all to stay in one hotel family room and booking 2 rooms is expensive, so this was an ideal option. We would definitely stay again.

“Excellent location for holiday”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Perfect location, very centrally located, everything you could ask for on the Royal Mile. The instructions on how to find the apartment were perfect. I only wish I had bothered to read. The young gentleman that greeted us and handed over the keys gave us the tour of the space and went on his way. This apartment is exactly 3 minutes from the Royal Mile. There is a great pub at then end of the block. We couldn't hear a peep from other properties or the street at night. If I am in Edinburgh again, you can count on me contacting Liz to stay here again. The location is ideal for touring this amazing city. The apartment was spotless and well appointed. Excellent value for money.
