Description from owner


The old drying green shared by residents of the building has some of the best views of the castle in Edinburgh! Take a seat and a drink and watch the festival fireworks after a day's sightseeing. We love the views of the castle from the streets in this area. The historic Grassmarket is a 2 minute stroll and all the major tourist attractions, cultural venues and many cafes, shops and restuarants are within easy walking distance. The apartment has just been refurbished to a high standard and is beautifully presented and very comfortable. We want you to enjoy your stay in our lovely city!

“Lovely apartment”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

Gill's place is great! It is very central, close to all of Edinburgh's attractions, and offers everything one needs to feel at home. Gill is a very attentive host and communication with her couldn't have been more smooth. Arriving at the apartment, I received a very warm welcome including a cup of tea and many great tips on what to do in the city. A great start to an even greater vacation. The apartment itself has been clean and light, with a kitchen that offers everything to prepare your own meals, and the bed is really comfortable as well. While all windows in the apartment face a fairly busy road, it was never loud and getting a good nights sleep never an issue. The city itself is just beautiful and I have enjoyed my stay immensely. The city offers everything from culture, to shopping, to great scenery, and while it isn't small, you can still walk everywhere and it has such a cosy feel to it. I would highly recommend both the city itself as well as Gill's place!

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to review the flat. I'm really pleased that the secondary glazing which we installed to silence the traffic noise works so well - it is nice to have a central location but even nicer when you can get a good night's sleep too! I travel when I can myself and I know that when you are on holiday you need a comfortable bed and a cosy space to come back to - so that's what we've tried to achieve for our guests. Pleased you enjoyed your stay!
