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.

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.

We have only been renting from January 2014 but here are some of the guest book comments we have received so far.

The flat is right on the edge of Holyrood Park, so fantastic for walking, running and sightseeing. It's also within a short-ish stroll of everything you'd want to see in Edinburgh - half an … More

Thank you for such a wonderful review. We keep emphasising the central location of the apartment in all our advertising and it is great that our guests are appreciating this. We are also delighted that the other amenities such as wifi, parking and a well equipped kitchen were of such benefit to you.

"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.
