"Great flat, great location!"

We stayed here for five nights while house-hunting in Edinburgh. It was really a perfect location. It's an easy 10 minute walk from the tram that comes from the airport, if you're flying in.… More

Thank you for leaving feedback, we really value your comments. The New Town location is ideal for sampling the very best Edinburgh has to offer, whether it's the restaurants and galleries of Stockbridge or the more familiar tourist areas. The Botanic Gardens and the Water of Leith walkway are calm areas that are also on our doorstep, and well worth a visit. We like to ensure the apartment is super-comfy for our guests so we are pleased you found it cosy and slept well during your stay. We knew you were relocating to this city, and were househunting during your stay ... but didn't expect you to become neighbours! Congratulations and we look forward to seeing you when you move in!

"Such a gem! Luxury and comfort in the heart of Edinburgh!"

We were amazed by this beautiful flat offering your own piece of luxury in Edinburgh New Town! The elegance of the flat is met with a very cozy atmosphere, with tasteful accents of Scotland throughout. We arrived to a beautiful reception of whisky, and a thoughtful card and Prosecco in honour of our daughter's graduation that week. Stuart and Wendy accommodated our early arrival that day, and we wish we had a chance to meet them in person; very lovely people!

The flat itself is located near Princes Street and all the great shopping and sites- Stockbridge Market (which takes place on Sundays) is a short walk away, definitely worth a visit! The number 27 bus is conveniently located a minute from the flat, which will take you up the Mound and through to the Royal Mile.

The kitchen is well stocked if you are looking to cook during your stay, and the sleeping arrangements were very comfortable. Cannot recommend this flat enough!

Thank you for leaving such a lovely review! It is always our aim to ensure our guests have a holiday to remember, and we were delighted to be able to help you celebrate your daughter's graduation. We are so pleased you enjoyed the comfortable and luxurious style of 28A Cumberland Street. We want our guests to relax the moment they arrive at the apartment because we know that sightseeing in Edinburgh can be hard work! There is so much to see and do, that we like to think of our guests having some time to relax in comfort at the end of a full day! We of course would also have been pleased to have met you too … perhaps next time?! Stuart & Wendy x

"Bijou boutique hotel meets perfect Des Res"

Why stay in a hotel when you can stay here, it's like staying in a large elegant hotel suite with all the additional comforts from home. There isn't anything the owners haven't thought… More

Thank you so much for leaving feedback. It is greatly appreciated, and we are really delighted you had a great time. Our aim is for our guests to relax and feel at home from the moment they arrive and we work hard to ensure everyone receives a warm welcome. We were pleased to hear that you headed to Stockbridge … an area which has a village atmosphere, characterised by the many delis, tea houses, small restaurants, cafes, and pubs … a lovely Sunday market with a great bohemian vibe! Thank you for recommending 28A Cumberland Street to others! We would love to be able to welcome you back again in future!

"An Exceptional 35th Anniversary Holiday"

We arrived earlier than usual on a cold drizzly Edinburgh day. Stuart and Wendy made special efforts to arrange our early entrance into the apartment on Cumberland. Their warm and cozy holiday flat gr… More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your Anniversary celebration with us! Thank you so much for these lovely comments. You told us at booking that you are an interior designer and your husband a foodie expert … so we are especially pleased that you liked the apartment, and found the location perfect. We hope you take some wonderful memories of your celebratory holiday back with you to the USA. We obviously would be delighted to welcome you or your friends in future! S&W x

Thank you very much for your kind review! Knowing your guests were coming from Mauritius we were keen to have things ready for you as early as possible. So glad you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and Edinburgh in general. We'd be delighted if you returned in future!

"Beautiful, cozy apartment with excellent Location"

We stumbled upon this property while we were rigorously trying to book a 3 nights last minute stay in Edinburgh. The dates of our stay incidentally were the busiest for Edinburgh owing to the Edinburgh International Festival and the Fringe. We were quite not finding the right place since this was our first trip together and everything thing was heavily booked. We were glad to have found an availability at Stuart & Wendy's Cumberland Apartment and much to our surprise it was a wonderful choice. We loved the apartment from the moment we set foot inside. The house was very well done, neatly kept and comfortably stocked. The bottle of wine and the Scottish sweet treats kept by the hosts was indeed quite thoughtful and welcoming.

About the interior - The living room area was my personal favorite. It was the perfect mix of contemporary, minimalist yet it had that dash of Old Vintage Scotland with the mantle pieces and other artifacts. We loved the interiors. Kitchen was comfortable and conveniently stocked with all the essentials.

About the location - We were looking for something away from the hustle and bustle of the city in the festival time yet not too far from all the major attractions & must see places. And this was just that. Very conveniently located at just a 15 to 40 minutes walk (approx; we quite didn't time it) to all places you'd want to visit i.e Princes street, Old Town, New Town Castle, The Royal Mile. major Restaurants, Bakeries etc. Its pretty accessible.

However, the only downer for us was no concrete/fixed Parking facility. We had our own drive and parking was an hassle. They had free parking only from after 5.30 in the evening till 8.30 am. So every morning we had to get up to get the parking tickets with was a little bothersome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was a good and comfortable time spent at 28A Cumberland street for us. A nice & cozy apartment for a couple or few friends.

We are delighted you chose 28A Cumberland Street for your first trip together! We know it took a lot of organising to combine arrival times from Dubai, but we are pleased it has all worked out well for you. Thank you for leaving such a detailed review. We pride ourselves on the little, personal touches that will make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. Yes, there is a dilemma everywhere in Edinburgh regarding parking. Many of our guests who choose to bring their car during the week have used the free park and ride facilities and travel by tram or bus into the city centre. Alternatively it is possible to pre book car parks which works out more reasonable. Our weekend guests are lucky enough to have free street parking on their doorstep! A definite bonus! We know your partner left her hair straighteners behind, and we were pleased to be able to reunite them with her at your convenience before she returned to Dubai! Perhaps we can welcome you again in the future?! Regards, Stuart & Wendy

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We know you had a great time with your 2 teenage daughters …. Edinburgh has something for every age group! We took a long time to choose both the kingsize bed and the sofa bed, because we wanted to ensure our guests have a good night's sleep! We pride ourselves on offering excellent accommodation at a reasonable price. We would be so pleased to welcome you all again in the future! Stuart & Wendy
