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. For those with the 2014 Commonwealth Games on their radar, the Royal Commonwealth Pool, which will host the diving competition, is a pleasant stroll from the apartment via Holyrood Park. The apartment is however very close to bus routes in the Abbeyhill and London Road areas which link to all parts of the city.

Holyrood Park Apartment is a modern, well appointed two bedroom flat, newly equipped for visitors in December 2013. 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 parking (via permit). A cycle rack is available just outside the apartment. The light and airy carpeted lounge has ample seating on leather 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.

"Great place to stay if you want a quiet break"

Enjoyed 4 days here. Very quiet and easy access to the centre. The free parking was great and added to the appeal when we looked for somewhere to stay. The facilities are very good and the kitchen is … More

Thanks for your kind comments. It's great that you got full advantage of the quiet central location and free parking. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Do come again.
