Your search is over! You would be extremely hard pressed to find as wonderfully situated a holiday apartment as this. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Abbeyhill on the edge of the Royal Park of Holyrood, a 650 acre array of hills, lochs, glens, trails and cliffs dominated by the famous 'Arthur's Seat' at 251m (822ft), affording panoramic views of the city but which is relatively easy to climb and very popular with hill walkers. Nearer ground level the apartment is proud to have as a near neighbour the Palace of Holyroodhouse, HM Queen Elizabeth's official residence in Scotland. The Palace is located at the foot of Edinburgh's Royal Mile, a world renowned thoroughfare with its eclectic mix of shops, pubs, eateries and visitor attractions linking the Palace at one end with Edinburgh Castle at the other. Also nearby is the controversial Scottish Parliament building which, love it or loathe it, is certainly worth a visit as is the wonderful 'Dynamic Earth' experience next door to the Parliament. A pleasant walk of a mile takes you to Edinburgh New Town and the shopping experience of another world famous Edinburgh thoroughfare, Princes Street plus, of course Waverley Railway Station and Edinburgh Bus Station with express links to the Airport and all points beyond. Most of the Fringe and Festival venues and of course the Christmas and Hogmanay attractions are located within or close to the Royal Mile and Princes Street areas. For visitors with more energetic pursuits in mind, Meadowbank Sports Centre is only a half mile walk away, as is the Meadowbank Retail Park with a Sainsbury's superstore and other shops. The apartment is however very close to bus routes in the Abbeyhill and London Road areas which link to all parts of the city.

Tytler Gardens Apartment is a modern, well appointed two bedroom flat. It is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, on the ground floor of a well maintained building with a secure entry system, clean and tidy communal areas and free parking (via included permit). A cycle rack is available just outside the apartment. The light and airy carpeted lounge has two sofas, one of which is a sofa bed. The lounge also includes a dining table and chairs. A flat screen TV with Freeview is installed together with a DVD player. The modern, fully equipped kitchen includes an induction hob, double oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave together with ample good quality cookware, crockery, cutlery, glassware and bakeware. A toaster, kettle, teapot and cafetiere are also provided. Hand and dish towels, pot scrubbers and dishcloths are also provided in the kitchen together with detergent and cleaning fluids. Both double bedrooms are carpeted. One has a double bed and the other two singles complete with duvets, pillows, mattress and pillow protectors. Bed linen is provided. Sufficient storage and clothes hanging space is included in the wardrobes. The bathroom contains a bath and over bath shower with curtain. Ample bath and hand towels are provided. An iron and ironing board, clothes airer and hair dryer are supplied. Broadband is installed in the property. A welcome pack with supplies to get your holiday started is included.

We can accommodate parties of up to 12 people between this apartment and its sister apartment Waverley Park Apartment (Holiday lettings Id: 6 5 8 4 8 2 0 ) which is two minutes walk away in Waverley Park.

"Wondeerful Apartment in an excellent location."

We stayed here for 3 days and found this to be a lovely apartment, spotlessly clean and well furnished. It is in a quiet location with parking permits for 2 cars. A very short walk takes you to Holyrood Park, Holyrood Palace and The Scottish Parliament as well as being on the end of The Royal Mile with some excellent places to eat and drink and be entertained. We would have no hesitation at staying here again and there is plenty room for 6 people. We have already recommended it to friends and family.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad the two parking permits were of benefit to you and removed the hassle of getting parked in such a central area. Thanks also for recommending to your friends.

"fantastic place to stay."

Fantastic apartment, everything you need is privided. Extremely clean and comfortable, The beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. Very quiet we could not here any one else in the surrounding apartments. It was very easy to find and cost under £5.00 for five of us in a taxi to get into town at night. Owners were extremely helpful when they gave us instructions finding the apartment. Will definitely be staying here again and would recommend it to everyone who wants comfort, quietness and peace of mind .

Thank you for your lovely comments. We would be delighted to have you stay if you visit Edinburgh again. James and Mandy

"Clean, Cozy, Convenient and very close to city centre"

I stayed at this property with my elderly parents in Oct 2014 and I can say that they thoroughly enjoyed the stay. All rooms in the apartment were absolutely clean and very cozy. The location is quite nice as well as it provides access to local convenience stores at a stone's throw as well as a leisurely walk to the city center I would definitely recommend this to my fellow travelers.

Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, with the apartment being on the ground floor it is ideal for the elderly. And the quiet central location makes it ideal for them travelling to the popular tourist destinations.

"Perfect location, good equipment and clean environment."

Appartement Holyrood Park offered us a perfect location, convenient acommodation with good equipment and clean environment. It provided us with great conditions for sightseeing in Edinburgh and visiting the natural beauties in the area. Everything what family needs was available. We fully recommend this place for visiting Edinburgh.

Thank you for your kind comments, we have tried hard to make the apartment feel like a home from home. We are delighted that you appreciated the wonderful central location.
