Very comfortable and well appointed - there wasn't anything missing that we needed for a five day stay. It's right next to the Royal Mile - down towards Holyrood.
The apartment is clean, well equipped and we felt very much at home after several days slogging around every tourist sight in Edinburgh. The bed was especially comfortable and the secure parking meant that we could leave the car in the middle of a UK city with complete peace of mind (oh, and free).
All of the instructions were spot on and the communications accurate and friendly.
We hope to go back to Edinburgh some time and this will be the first place that we look at.

“Great location”

If you want to be in the best location possible for fun in Edinburgh, Atholl Brae is for you. It is a few minutes walk to all the best tourist destinations, restaurants, transportation, everything!

The apartment is clean, has all the mod cons needed for cooking, surviving in mid-city Edinburgh and is nicely decorated. The owner, Liz, is the best, willing to help with whatever you may need from info about the city, to acquiring golf clubs for our visit!! Great stay for two couples spending nine days in lovely Edinburgh!

Lovely apartment - even has it's own Tavern at the end of the Wynd. Everything you need in the apartment, very comfortable and great heating due to cold and snow! We were six young ladies in their 40's and managed to get to see the rugby too.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We are a group of 4 adults and 1 infant on a 5 week road trip around Great Britain (January 2013). We did not pre book accommodation for this trip and telephoned Liz on our way to Edinburgh from York. She returned my call as soon as possible and we booked in on the road. We chose Atholl Brae based on TA reviews, location and size. We were not disappointed. Liz was away but arranged for someone to prepare flat and meet us. It was more like a flat owned by a friend that they let you use while they out of town than a vacation rental. Very pleasant, clean and fresh flat, thoughtfully kitted out, with anything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The main bedroom was on the small size but perfectly adequate for purpose. It was cold outside but warm and cozy in flat. Needed to turn down heating sometimes. Washing machine a bonus for people on the move but for some reason drying on airers took long time in spite of flat being warm. It is very close to the Royal Mile -- a short stroll up the street under Tollbooth Arch, then a right turn up High Street to Edinburgh Castle or a left turn down to Holyrood House Palace and the new Scottish Parliament Buildings. We also walked into New Town from there ( we used the stairs up the wall at the bottom of the road). I would definitely recommend this accommodation to family and friends.

“Fantastic location, fanastic time”
Reviewed 22 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Edinburgh at Festival time is mad - Festival, Fringe and Tattoo creating an extra-ordinary buzz. We (2 adults and 2 older teenagers) came for the Festival and Fringe. We stayed in apartment 1 rather than 4 (same owners).

The location was perfect - a step out of the front door, under the arch of the Old Tolgate Booth and out onto the Royal Mile straight into the throngs of visitors and those plugging their Fringe shows. Fantastic number of coffee shops, restaurant food from all nations and at all prices, and corner shops and small supermarket in close proximity. Lots of helpful suggestions have been left by the owners.

The apartment is of good size, very clean, well furnished, and had everything we needed. We traveled by car so having a secure parking space was great - although the apartment is close by the station. We used the car only when events were outside the City. The whole of central Edinburgh is easily visited from Atholl Brae.

We had a warm welcome from Liz's son (who accommodated us arriving much earlier than we expected). We enjoyed the fizz and short-breads left for us. And then joined the throngs - for a fantastic four days of great comedy and theatre and a night-time walk up Arthur's Seat.

Would stay here again - yes, and hopefully next year
