Mark and Martin are lovely hosts in a really homely flat. The flat was really comfortable, had everything we needed to feel 'home away from home', and we enjoyed the log fire tremendously. The location of the flat provided a convenient base for exploring Edinburgh and neighbouring Leith.

Thanks very much for your positive review, we are glad you had a nice time and look forward to seeing you again the next time you visit Edinburgh

"Great apartment"

We decided to go to Edinburgh to celebrate a special wedding anniversary and chose the apartment cos it had an open fire and it seemed reasonably priced. From the beginning, contact with the owner was excellent - Mark made himself available for whatever questions we had and met us on arrival, giving us a hand with our luggage, and advising us of the best place to park, what to visit, what restaurants were good etc.

The actual apartment was well equipped, spacey with great decoration and with many original features - the fire was brill and the apartment's location was within walking distance of most tourist spots if you don't mind walking 10-15 minutes (except the castle which is a good 30 minutes up a steep hill but great if you want to get the blood pumping!) The only slight downsides were the apartment is on the third floor so lots of steps - this didn't bother us but may if you struggle with stairs - and there is no parking outside the property but, again, there is some available a short walk away.

All round, we had a great time in Edinburgh and staying in this lovely apartment added to this - it was like home from home, highly recommended.

Thank you for such a positive review, we are glad you had a lovely wedding anniversary break and look forward to seeing you both again the next time you are in Edinburgh.
