We have now stayed in the flat on three visits to Edinburgh, and would choose it again for a future stay. The location is ideal: right in the centre of the 'New' Town, but quiet, on a lane off a pedestrianized street. Many attractions (such as the National Gallery) are within walking distance, as is Waverley Station. The tram line is also close, as are the many buses that pass along Princes Street. There is a good supermarket nearby, but even better is the M&S food hall in M&S on Princes Street. The flat itself has been modernized, and is immaculately clean, and the kitchen has a comprehensive range of equipment. If you prefer to eat out, there are many restaurants within a few yards. If you want to shop, there is everything from department stores to boutiques. Should you visit in the heating season, the room heaters are efficient and responsive. Lynne is very friendly and helpful. Edinburgh is one of our favourite cities, and this is a great place from which to explore and enjoy it.
This location is amazing. Walking distance to everything, super clean and well equipped. Lynne is very welcoming and helpful. Will recommend to friends and family for sure!
Perfect location for our stay. The unit is exactly as described, very comfortable and spacious. Lynne was a pleasure to work with through the booking process. Would recommend to visitors looking for easy access to loads of restaurants and shopping, as well as bus transportation.
This darling flat is located in one of the most desirable areas of Edinburgh. I have stayed on the Royal Mile which is "Old Town" and decided to try this little bungalow on the equally famous Rose Street, in "New Town. My boyfriend and I loved the fact it was centrally located, close to Prince and George's Streets, clean and just the right space for us. For USA folks who expect large rooms, this has a nice kitchen and sitting area and lovely bedroom. It is not large but not tiny. Great for two or three. Lynne met us early in the morning which was so helpful since we had been on a long flight. She's very helpful and informative. Just to be fair to those that need to know, there is no "lift" or elevator and if you cannot do stairs it's not for you. I am 62 and I did them fine, but there are 45 steps up....good exercise and younger folk will be fine. This is Scotland and walking is the main transport. Solid shoes are a must. We had a wonderful time. Thank you, Lynne! (P.S. a suitcase holder/rack would have been easier for luggage...but we did fine.)
During our previous two visits to Edinburgh (2006 and 2012) Val and I had stayed in hotels at the western and eastern extremities of the city centre. This time we were determined to be more central and this superb two-person apartment could not be any more central.
With the exception of a bit of noise in the "wee small hours" from revellers going home, it is faultless. Comfortable, easily controlled electric radiators, a brilliant shower room, and a folder full of information about the flat and Edinburgh.
If we get up that way again, we'd have no hesitation in re-booking.
