Further details outdoors



This is a city centre holiday let and therefore, like all cities, street parking is limited in available spaces & the number of hours you are allowed to park in these spaces, it can also be expensive. Because the apartment is so central you really do not need a car to get to the world famous Edinburgh City attractions. However; if for you a car is a necessity; there is free parking in the metered bays right out side the apartment from 18.30 hours to 08.00 hours each night and from 18.30 on Saturday night through to 08.00 Monday morning. During the day for limited time, Monday to Saturday, you can pay to park in these bays or alternatively park in the Radisson hotel's car park across the road. Both have a reasonable tariff. Tip: If you don't fancy getting up in the morning to feed the meter for the bays you can pay the night before and it won't start until 08.00 the next morning. All the above is council/Hotel run and could be subject to change without notification. Best to check on arrival.

*Bicycles can be chained to the railings on the first floor roof terrace before entering the door to the main stairs.

*Please note: There is no security that would stop anyone wishing to access the roof terrace. Anything, including bicycles, left on the roof terrace will be done so at your own risk. No bicycles in the apartment please.

Further details

To help you settle in on arrival we provide a welcome pack of a caddy of tea, a jar of coffee and a jar of sugar along with a fresh pint of milk. There is a well stocked small grocers just around the corner on North Bridge and a couple of larger supermarkets approximately half a mile down South Bridge. If you don't fancy the walk or you are returning with a lot of shopping, you can catch one of the many buses that run this route.

As with most central Edinburgh accommodation the apartment has no lift (Elevator). It is on the (Officially 2nd floor) actually 3rd floor. Therefore is unsuitable for some elderly or infirm visitors.

The stairs to the apartment are shared with residents so common consideration must be shown when entering, staying in and leaving the apartment.

The Lothians region

Edinburgh, like Rome, is built on 7 hills, the most famous of them being; the dorment volcano 'Arthur's Seat', Calton Hill and The Castle Rock. The Castle Rock has a 'tail' or ridge that was carved out by nature during the Ice age, it runs from Edinburgh Castle down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse and measures slightly more than 1 mile (Hence the name The Royal Mile). 1000 years ago this ridge became Edinburghs first road. Today, it is known as 'The Royal Mile'. The apartment is set halfway down this beautiful and ancient route.


One of Europe's most beautiful Capital Cities, Edinburgh is the centre of Devolved Scottish Government, the second largest centre for European financial management after London and is home to the annual International Festival of the Arts and it's famous 'Fringe'.

Art Galleries, Museums, Theatres, Cinemas and Concert Halls contribute to a rich cultural life.

The City also plays regular host to many National & international sporting events and is a Mecca for shopping with many designer and specialist outlets.

There is a huge choice of venues for eating & drinking at every level and price imaginable.

Golf, swimming, Mounting biking, Hiking, Dry slope skiing, Histoical & ghost tours and the Dynamic Earth attraction are just some of the things to enjoy during your visit.

"An excellent base for a trip to Edinburgh"

Thank you for a lovely review. We're delighted you were so happy with the apartment and its 'excellent' location. Sorry I couldn't fit you in for your requested second stay but the apartment is so popular with new and returning visitors it can sometimes be hard to find available dates. One of the things I suggest to my returning visitors is to check our website diary nice and early with a view to book further ahead. It looks like our continuing commitment of year on year apartment improvements, lowering prices and professional website photographs has been very popular with our guests. Thanks again.
Haste ye back.

Oh Wow! What a great professional review, thank you. You seem to have covered most of the concerns inquiring visitors may have when booking a city break holiday I'm delighted that you found the apartment 'very homely and cosy' and the bed 'super comfortable' as that is exactly what we strive to provide. It will be reassuring to potential visitors to know that you found the directions and communications clear and thorough as it can be a worry when arriving in an unfamiliar city.
I'll get our apartment manager to check out the WiFi just in case it is us; it's new so it might have been a hiccup in the system.
You're right about the location, right in the walking distance middle of all the best attractions.
Thanks again for a great review.
Haste ye back.
