"Wonderful stay. Great festival spot"

Cosy, quiet, beautifully decorated and very central. We spent three nights here during the Edinburgh festival and it was perfect for our needs. It's small but carefully thought out, very clean and extremely pretty. .It has the feel of a small house rather than an apartment. Bob and Maria Louisa were there to meet us and were very helpful. When a fourth person was added to our party at the last minute they kindly changed the sofa for a sofa bed (at a small extra charge). They were also very quick to provide us with an extra key that made our sometimes separate trips to different shows much easier to arrange. Kitchen is small but has everything you need and we were pleased to be able to eat in a lot. Supermarket just 2 mins walk away. There are a lot of stairs up to the apartment so probably would not be a great fit for those with mobility issues, or very heavy luggage. Only minor issues were low water pressure , which made washing up/showering a bit of a nuisance, and beds that were a little hard for my preference .But neither spoiled our trip at all. Great find and a wonderfully peaceful haven from the noise of the festival so nearby. Oh and did I say, it's right below Edinburgh's wonderful and atmospheric castle!!!
