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 free parking (via included 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.

"Fantastic central base - easy walk to the royal mile."

This holiday rental was excellent. Very easy to book and discuss our arrangements with the owners. Having a safe, central location with parking was difficult but this little flat has everything you ne… More

Thanks for your kind comments. The free parking does make it so much easier when travelling by car and looking for central accommodation. The view from Arthurs Seat is spectacular on a nice day and with it being accessible from the apartment it makes a nice walk. Since your stay we have refurbished the bathroom and this can be seen on the updated photos on the website.
Thanks, James and Mandy

"Clean, Cozy, Convenient and very close to city centre"

I stayed at this property with my elderly parents in Oct 2014 and I can say that they thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
All rooms in the apartment were absolutely clean and very cozy.
The location is quite nice as well as it provides access to local convenience stores at a stone's throw as well as a leisurely walk to the city center

I would definitely recommend this to my fellow travelers.

Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, with the apartment being on the ground floor it is ideal for the elderly. And the quiet central location makes it ideal for them travelling to the popular tourist destinations.
