“Great location and great apartment” Lovely flat in the heart of Edinburgh. The apartment is very spacious and nicely decorated. Very well equipped and clean. Stunning views.
We loved especially the location: Calton Hill. Very peaceful an still close to the main attractions in Edinburgh.
Really kind and helpful contact. Would be happy to rent with them again.

“Weekend break” Upon on arrival we met owners daughter who showed us to apartment and explained everything and was pleasant, the apartment was very clean and tidy our party was 4 adults and small child and apartment had plenty of room for all of us, and a bus or taxi ride to city centre.
On way home had a tx of owner to say I had left my watch behind and he his going to post to me many thanks again .
“Centrally located and family friendly!” I booked this apartment considering it's location and accomodation for 2 adults and 2 children (5 and7) which it did very comfortably. It had everything that we required including washer/dryer, dishwasher and hairdryer. The beds and luxe linens were extremely comfortable. Wifi worked very well to. Lynne was fantastic in the booking phase and then met us at the property to let us in after a long haul flight which was very much appreciated. I would add that there are 3 flights of stairs leading up to the apartment which is worth considering if you have lots of luggage or equipment to bring up and down however does not take away from the experience at all. I really cannot fault this well located and freshly/luxuriously fitted apartment. It is a pleasure to highly recommend this property in Edinburgh.
Couldn't be happier about our stay at this apartment. The place was well furnished and immaculate. Lynne had even provided a small Christmas tree, which was lovely.

“Perfect apartment in a perfect location” I was so looking forward to staying at this apartment and it certainly lived up to, and exceeded, my expectations.
The booking process was simple and the owner, Lynne, was very thorough with the information provided at all stages of the process.
Despite the apartment's location in a street full of restaurants, pubs etc I was never bothered by any noise from these establishments.
The kitchen is equipped with all manner of useful items, ranging from cling film, aluminium foil, air-tight containers, tea, coffee, sugar, some basic herbs, spices and condiments etc, ample cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. Instructions are provided for everything from the heaters to the washing machine, as is a range of tourist information.
As well as lots of pubs/restaurants in the area, there are also a number of supermarkets close by if you want to cook your own meals.
Travelling with heavy, bulky, luggage I was initially concerned about the width/steepness of the staircases to access this second floor apartment however I need not have worried- the staircases are surprisingly wide and provide better access than others I have encountered.
Would I stay here again? Most definitely!!
The flat is very nice in all respects, and for me, the location is perfect. I could not be happier with my stay and I look forward to returning......… More

Firstly , the person who wrote this review was not the person who was to stay at the apartment , but a relative booking on their behalf.
The guests were told on December 14th that my father would be greeting them so they knew about that but they did not tell me their arrival time untill after 10 am on the day, despite my asking 3 times.
When they arrived they made it clear that other relatives had booked a different place and they went there first. They discovered it was much bigger than they expected and obviously decided to just stay there with them. This was a new years eve arrival and too short notice for me to find more guests and they were leaving me without a booking.
They came into the apartment solely to find things to criticise in order to try and get a refund.
Every accusation they made was proved untrue . Trip advisor fully investigated their claims and found in my favour, awarding me the full payment for their stay. This obviously disgruntled them and they then wrote this review.
Just to assure anyone reading and wondering,
The annex is a purpose built granny flat ...as in it was built from scratch to house an elderly relative . It is not and never has been a garage !
It has 3 , basic but immaculate and warm rooms and has all the facilities you need for your stay in Edinburgh
You can be assured of a warm welcome from all of the family. Our integrity is our strength. We do not claim to offer a plush hotel , but we do offer a warm welcome to our family home.
The annex shares a hallway with the family home , and the hallway is securely locked to the street . I can assure you that claims we would wander in and out are preposterous,
And also point out that even in the most expensive hotel, room service hold keys and can do just that at any time .
All the claims about toilet roll , pillow cases etc are nonsense. The rooms were still in process of being finished when they arrived due to their unknown arrival time.
My lovely dad , who is 83 years old travelled 100 miles from Newcastle specially so a family member would be here to welcome them . They were very rude and called our home ' a garage '. It's true I was not overly concerned about them as I knew they were off to their other place !
If you are still in any doubt , please read our other reviews and also the dozens of fantastic reviews on another popular letting site, or contact me direct. I can provide screen shot evidence of all the conversations I had with these people which proves they are lying.
We look forward to greeting you and proving to you that we provide a warm and friendly service
