"Nice, clean flat in a great New Town location"
The flat was clean and a good fit for 3 of us. The location is great to explore New Town, and all of it's charity shops, cafes, and pubs. It is also very close to an entrance to Leith River path … More

"Very well equipped comfortable basement flat in a great location."
Stayed here for a 4 night break with my Mum and daughter. Booking was straightforward Gary met us on arrival and was very helpful. The secure car park space close by was invaluable as the area is most… More

Good communications and an easy booking process. The owner was very flexible about meeting to collect the keys. We just needed a quick phone call on our approach to the City. It was a compact and cute… More

"Compact well equipped flat"
We stayed for a long weekend at the flat. Getting keys and arrival was easy, the parking is a good 5 mins walk away though. The flat is not large (there is only access to the double bed on one side) or light filled (its a basement) but has everything you need - they also gave baby cot with linen which is unusual but a nice feature. No bath for wee ones though.
Its a 5 min bus ride up to Princes Street but Stockbridge itself has a fair number of restaurants.
I feel pretty hard done by this review and am very disappointed with this reviewer. Thay appear to be active Tripadvisor users but never manage to get any accommodation that they like!. Please look at their other reviews as they are pretty negative about almost all places that they stay.
For the record - PARKING IS LESS THAN 250 METERS FROM THE APARTMENT.
It is a very bright apartment. Please remember that these people stayed in December, around the shortest day. It never gets properly daylight, therefore it is pretty dark in Scotland around this time of year!!

"15 Minutes walk to George Street and a car park!"
Cool flat in an exceptional situation. The parking space, included with the apartment, was invaluable and saved us so much time and money in parking fees.
We found it was a 15 minute walk to the best of Edinburghs shopping on George Street.
Fab choice of pubs and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk of the flat.
Would not go anywhere else. We will be back!

"Fantastic apartment fantastic location"
Stayed at this fantastic apartment in Stockbridge during September. The location was exceptional as you are right in the city but the street that the apartment was tucked away and very quiet. In fact the road was not a through road so there was not even traffic going past, which made for a sound nights sleep.
The apartment had everything we needed, dvd, freeview tv, wi-fi and kitchen with all the utensils and crockery that you would expect. There were even a few of the basics already which saved us money – coffee, tea, sugar etc. We didn't do much in the way of cooking as there was a great choice of pubs and restaurants just a couple of streets away. Also a convenient metro supermarket which was open until about 10pm each day.
The closest bus stop was just around the corner from the apartment and that bus took us directly to the Royal Mile dropped us right outside Holyrood Palace and the same bus also continued to Ocean Terminal where the Royal Yacht Britannia is docked.
On foot it took about 15 minutes to walk to the prime shopping area on George Street and it was a beautiful walk through the New Town streets to get there.

"Nice Apartment - quiet area - 30 mins from Princess St"
Nice Apartment - advertisement states 10min leisurely walk from Princess St, but more like 30 minutes leisurely walk - would be pushed to run it in 10mins and it is all uphill. Nice area - quiet but with shops and restaurants close by. Took taxi to Waverley Station during rush hour on way home and journey took 30mins but only cost £7.50 which was very reasonable. Also be aware that this is a basement apartment (not stated in advert) so must go downstairs to gain access.
