Gladstone Apartment is ideal for city breaks to explore historic Edinburgh and the festivals, for visiting friends and family in the area, and for professional visits for work and conferences. Edinburgh University is close by, just across the Meadows. The flat is on the ground floor (US: First Floor) and so very accessible - it is a favourite with eldery guests who find stairs difficult and also with parents of young children who appreciate not having to carry the buggy upstairs.

The flat has large rooms and plenty of space. Two large leather sofa's in the living room, a bay window overlooking the private front garden you can use, and a gas fire for the days when you don't need full central heating. Both bedrooms have double beds, and we have a mothercare child's cot and a high chair available on request. The windows have wooden shutters, which can be secured at night and keep the warmth in during winter. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering and there are many takeaways and restaurants nearby for when you don't want to cook. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over it and a high powered shower in a separate cubicle. There is a separate loo so you don't have to wait for someone taking ages in the bathroom!

Please do look at our photos and also our website for more information on the flats. Please note the calendar on our marchmontselfcatering website is kept up to date regarding availability.

Travel to the flat is very easy - we include directions to the flat on our website, and also on the booking confirmation document. The no 41 bus from Waverley Train Station passes close tot he flat, airport transfers can be set up, and onstreet car parking is available on Gladstone Terrace outside the flat.

Marchmont Self Catering is family run, we have our two flats which were our homes in Edinburgh before we moved to live together in a small village just outside the city. We have both traveled widely and have tried to include everything we would love to find in a self catering cottage or apartment when we travel.


Here are some of our tripadvisor reviews of our Gladstone Apartment:
“Wonderful Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 31 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011
1 person found this review helpful
The flat was just perfect. Clean, large and with all amendities. Sue gave us a very warm welcome with a personal touch. Very pleasant. I hope to come back at the same spot in a few years. Groceries and beer store were close by, as well as a few take out restaurants and a park. Thanks for a wonderful time in this great city.
Salut!


“Elegant, spacious apartment in a fantastic location.”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 7 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011
Gladstone is perfectly placed to experience the wonderful city of Edinburgh.

A well-equipped, spacious and characterful apartment in a favourable location, Gladstone is within comfortable walking distance of the city centre and all its attractions.

The apartment has a very pleasant outlook -both front and rear and a wonderful parkland area just over the road from the bottom of the street, which includes an excellent play park for children, together with tennis courts.

The ground floor apartment is perfect for small families (2 double bedrooms) and couples alike with a choice of dining areas.

For those wishing to self cater, there are convenience stores, cafes, takeaways and delis just a short walk from Gladstone.

Comes highly recommended.



“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago for a stay in November 2013 NEW
This apartment is in a great location. Quiet neighborhood but close to the town center. Walk to the Grassmarket in about 15 minutes. On the 1st floor and easily accessible for people who have trouble with stairs. Spacious rooms and a great kitchen fairly well equipped. Sue was a wonderful host!


Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Very conveniently situated in Marchmont, the flat is in a quiet central location only about 20-30 minutes walk from Edinburgh City Centre - The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and other major attractions. It is near many of the city's theatres and other performance venues, making this a perfect base to enjoy the Edinburgh Festivals between June to September. It is also very convenient for the universities, hospitals, financial centre and Edinburgh International Conference Centre. There are many fabulous cafes and restaurants in the locality, and take-aways to suit all tastes within five to ten minutes walk.

Edinburgh

Amenities for self-catering within about five minutes walk include a co-op, off-licence, newsagent and probably the best fish shop in Edinburgh, three or four fruit & veg shops and other grocery shops, and various take-aways covering Indian, Thai, Chinese, pizza, fish & chips and Italian/pasta. Other supermarkets within 10-20 minutes walk include a Sainsburys on the Meadows, and Tesco and Lidl. In the flat, we have information on where to find everything, bus timetables and routes, and a map to help you make the most of your time here.

Marchmont is easy to get to and well served with buses. There is a taxi rank on Warrender Park Road and metered on-street parking if you are driving (Monday to Friday 8:30am-5:30pm).

When you are tired of visiting the many interesting and varied visitor attractions or festival events in Edinburgh, the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links offer plenty of opportunity to relax or play with friends and the family - from frisbee to football, tennis at the Edinburgh Leisure courts where you can hire everything you need, children's swings and multi-activity compounds, or golf on the short 36 hole links, where you can play for free (you need to bring your own clubs).

Further afield, Gladstone Apartment and Roseneath Apartment are a perfect base to explore the surrounding countryside, as it is so easy to access the city bypass and less than half an hour's drive to the Pentland Hills and fabulous beaches.
