A stunning property from which to enjoy Edinburgh. It is in the centre of the Backet Conservation area with properties from early Georgian to the late Victorian eras. This is a very quiet residential area yet with ease of access either by foot or bus to all major attractions in the city centre. With high ceilings and cornice work this immaculate property is a joy!

Many of our visitors are family groups coming together for weddings, graduations or just fun get- togethers.

Within a short walk there is a wide range of shops, pubs and bars but also the wild areas surrounding Arthurs Seat down to Holyrood Palace, the Old Town and the Scottish Parliament building.

"Very easy and clean place to stay."

"Beautiful apartment in gorgeous neighbourhoopd"

I booked this apartment for our French family's first trip to Scotland. It suited their needs perfectly as it has a big dining kitchen, huge lounge and four good sized bedrooms, It is extremely well fitted out, in a lovely quiet neighbourhood yet convenient for the city centre. Absolutely great value for money compared to other hoolkiday lets I considered.

"Welcoming, comfortable, spacious, great location, great views!"

I cannot recommend this property highly enough. The owners, Sheila and Ian, were very friendly and always helpful. We were a party of 7 spanning 3 generations, and even with that number and age range we never felt crowded or even close to it. The lounge is extremely spacious, with plenty of seating and a stunning view through the bay window. The kitchen is modern, well equipped and also has plenty of seating. Central Edinburgh is a 20 minute walk for those inclined, or there's a direct bus route with a stop just round the corner on the Dalkeith Road. If you don't feel like going into the centre to eat, it's only a 2 minute walk to the Salisbury Arms, which serves excellent gastro-pub style food. Or if you want to self cater, there's a Tesco express within half a mile. Parking was no problem, we could always find a space in the unrestricted zone just the other side of the Dalkeith Road.

"spacious, comfortable,peaceful accommodation"

We have just returned from a weeks stay at dryden place. Our party consisted of two adults and five children, but the apartment was spacious enough for everyone and of a very high standard. We found the owner very helpful but we were left to do our own thing, no intrusion. The location was excellent, minutes away from the city centre, plenty of buses. All in all, we can say we had a great time and would happily recommend dryden place to anyone.

"Excellent accommodation and location"

Booked this accommodation for a family holiday for new year to visit relations. Very comfortable and homely with welcoming owners. Within walking distance of city centre with local amenities nearby. Slight problem with parking but this was easily overcome.
