    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    This beautifully presented city centre apartment sits opposite the Queens Residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot of the Royal Mile, and only a few metres from Scotlands controversial Parliament Building. It is on the 3rd and 4th floors of a block housing 4 flats, surrounded by shared gardens.

    The setting could not be more central but it is set back from the road so suffers no excessive noise – even when Her Majesty fires the cannons. Almost impossibly, for its location, you have your own parking. A short walk places you at the heart of 1200 years of Scottish History (most of it gory).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 12 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed for 3 nights during November. The house was fully furnished with all needed appliances to accommodate two couples. David and Juquie were very helpful, polite and willing to solve some problems that we faced upon our arrival. Very good location, in the end of the royal mile, next to Hollyrood palace, approx 15mins walk to the castle. Would... more

The kitchen has all the fittings and appliances you could want including a rather snazzy coffee maker! Basic provisions were supplied by the owners but it is easy to walk... more
