The mews is a wonderful base for a trip to Edinburgh and central Scotland. Many attractions are located within walking distance of the property and while the mews is located in the city centre it is also within earshot of the bells of the awe-inspiring St Mary's Cathedral. The Modern Art Gallery is located 5 minutes walk west and Edinburgh Castle is only a 5 minute stroll east. The mews was originally part of the stables for houses within the famous New Town and was developed into a stunning contemporary property in Spring 2012. The fully equipped kitchen allows guests to cook but Edinbugh boasts a wealth of Michelin starred restaurants that may prove irresistble to guests.

We believe that whether you are visiting Edinburgh on holiday or for business purposes our high quality accommodation will enhance your experience of this beautiful city. We love to meet our guests and were thrilled when guests give us feedback. Here are some recent comments, 'The apartment was in a really great location and it wasn't too far from all the hot spots in Edinburgh. Colin and Karen were very nice and accommodating, which made our stay very enjoyable. If I was to return to Edinburgh, I would definitely stay there again!' (JAN 2013) 'The Mews was a really great choice! From the moment we booked, Colin was easy to communicate with and very helpful and friendly. The flat is very much what you would expect from a chic, luxurious property. The fridge was kindly stocked with fresh milk, OJ and flapjacks! What a special touch - thanks! We chose this place because it was conveniently located and I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a fab getaway. Congrats to Colin for creating this beautiful space, built to high standards. Cheers! ' (JAN 2013) 'I couldn't recommend this property and host enough. The whole process was made so easy by Colin. Communication was great and everything ran smoothly. The property itself is as good as it looks in the pictures - immaculate, really comfy bed, amazing shower and everything you would need for a weekend break or even a longer stay. The location is also great too - a really nice quiet road, but really close to the town and right by Edinburgh castle. We will be returning to Edinburgh and will definitely be staying at the same property. Thanks Colin!' (JAN 2013) 'What an incredible apartment! In a city centre location, easy to get to and simply beautiful. It's an incredibly comfortable place to stay and looks amazing. Colin is exactly what you'd want from a host and more, very helpful, easy to get hold of and made sure everything was ready for your stay....including some bonus flapjacks which were delicious. Will definitely be staying here again on future visits.' (JAN 2013) 'Luxury is the right word. Colin is professional from the off. The flat is exquisite and finished to a high standard and a superb central location. The flapjacks were a delicious bonus. Highly recommended.' DEC 2012 'First of all, Colin gave us his phone number, and was incredibly easy to communicate with. What's more, he was incredibly flexible as our arrival time changed. The Mews was immaculate, the little amenities like the heated towel rack, and very comfortable bed made it a absolutely wonderful experience. They even had orange juice and milk in the fridge, coffee and tea in the cupboard, and his wife even made us some treats. (Which were delicious!) The location was amazing as well. A quick jaunt to Princes Street, an easy walk to Old Town while still being quiet. Colin was a great host (I even forgot my computer charger in the apartment the day we left and he picked it up and met me somewhere convenient!) , and I can't wait to stay there again! ' DEC 2012 'Perfect base to explore Edinburgh. Great location, facilities and level of comfort. The Flapjacks were incredible too. Colin is really helpful and gave us a couple of good pointers on places to eat or get morning coffee. Overall, I can't think of anything that could have been improved upon. We'll definitely be coming back for a longer stay next time.' (NOV 2012) 'A truly fantastic place to stay in Edinburgh! Great location and gorgeous apartment. We wanted to stay longer! Colin was really helpful and friendly, and there were great touches in the apartment, like flapjack and orange juice on arrival and international plug adapters in the cupboard. We very much appreciated the flexible 'check out' time and being able to leave our bags. Will be recommending! Many thanks Colin.'

Quietly placed and within walking distance to Princes Street for shopping. There are also some very cute small shops and cafes along William Street which I can also recommend. The mews itself is exactly as it is shown to be in the photographs and has everything that a visitor needs to keep themselves comfortable. A lot of attention has been paid to detail and the mews has a modern but comfortable air about it. Colin was waiting for me when I arrived and was kind enough to return a little later with some adaptors for my European laptop and phone. He made sure that I had everything that I needed to make my stay a good one and his wife's delicious flapjacks were appreciated by my children when they dropped by to visit. I would love to stay here again. Book early because this beautiful place is bound to become quite popular.' (NOV 2012) 'Perfect base to explore Edinburgh.

Everything is there that makes your stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Special thanks for the flapjacks and elderflower wine. Delicious' (SEPT 2012) “We had a wonderful time in this beautiful place…your apartment is quite lovely and we enjoyed our time in this nice space.” (AUG 2012) More

About the neighbourhood
It's very difficult to do justice to the many festivals and attractions that exist in Edinburgh. As well as the world renowned Edinburgh Festival that is held every August there is the Hogmanay festival on New Year's Eve, the Science Festival in the spring, the Edinburgh International Film Festival in early summer, the Jazz and Blues Festival and also the Edinburgh Tattoo, the Book Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe that run alongside the Edinburgh Festival in August. A suggested itinerary for one of the days that you stay at the mews might be that you wander round to the iconic Brass & Copper coffee haunt in the West End village where you will enjoy THE best coffee, a fantastic way to start your day. Or enjoy a wonderful weekend brunch along at Indigo Yard. Within minutes you can walk ...
How to get there
The mews is located two minutes walk from a tram stop that allows speedy travel from Edinburgh airport, as well as many bus stops for award-winning Lothian buses around the city, and five minutes walk from Haymarket railway station.
