Description

We are delighted to offer this self-catering holiday apartment situated in the heart of Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile, close to St Giles Cathedral and Edinburgh Castle. It offers ideal holiday accommodation for a short break in the very heart of Edinburgh.

The apartment is on the third floor (steep staircase), with large windows overlooking the pedestrian precinct area of the Royal Mile.

The sittingroom has comfortable, built-in window seats, where guests can sit and watch the ever changing bustle of the Royal Mile below.

The sitting / dining / kitchen area is open-plan. The comfortable sitting area has a digital television with Freeview, DVD player and a CD / radio with an iPod dock.

The fully fitted and well equipped kitchen has a gas hob, electric oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, iron and microwave. There is a large dining table that can seat up to eight guests.
Wireless Internet broadband is provided for use with your own laptop, tablet or smart phone.

The sleeping accommodation comprises two bedrooms: one double to the rear of the apartment and one twin with secondary glazing to the front. A sofa-bed (really only suitable as a single) in the sitting area extends the sleeping capacity to five.

The bathroom has a shower over the bath.

The apartment is tastefully furnished with quality furniture that matches the attractive wood finish of the apartment.

Full bedding and towels are provided.

The property has full gas central heating.

The owners provide a complimentary welcome basket containing fruit juice, coffee, tea, sugar, milk and biscuits.

A parking space is available which is a 15 minute walk from the apartment.

‘The location and building was fab. It was warm, cosy and well appointed. The space was perfect for a famed four. We loved the window seats and watching the city below. The only problem were the really creaky floors. You could not walk anywhere without huge noise, which did make us worry we might wake our kids.’

‘This apartment is in a great location if you like to be in the thick of it all. It is clean and comfortable and really beautiful. The layout is great and the squeaky hardwood floors are charming. If you don't like noise at night, make sure to bring earplugs as you do get noise from the street. We really enjoyed our stay here and would return.’

‘Would be hard to find a better spot. The place was amazing and many sweet memories were created for our family. Woke up with bagpipes, went to sleep with street music. Always something to watch out the windows and within walking distance to everywhere we went. Could go on and on … Host was very helpful and communicated well.’

So thoughtful to provide milk and OJ for morning coffee. It was a wonderful location. In the heart of Old Town walkable to all the cute areas within. We were very happy with the apartment, wish I could live in it!’

‘Everything worked great, easy to find and check-in was smooth. The host was very helpful, including with the delivery of our 2 day PCR tests etc. Location, location, location. This was great but almost too good.:-) We were there over the weekend and the street was very busy way into the night and garbage trucks came very early both days etc. All in all except for the noisy street it was absolutely value for money and a very nice apartment. We would primarily recommend the apartment/location for people out most of the night themselves or not so noise sensitive:-) But on weekdays most probably not the same activity in the street.’

‘Dave was available all the time on his phone, he answered all our questions (you book with TravelNest but the lenders are pillowstops). We could even arrive earlier than check-in, which was very convenient. As Dave was not available, he explained us how to do the self check-in, which was very easy and clear. The flat is spacious, very nice with wooden floor. Perfectly matching the pictures. The location is perfect, very central, a lot of activities at 10 minuts walk (including the castle and camera obscura). The stair case to the flat is not as nice as the flat itself, but it's not an issue. I would book this flat again if I go back to Edimburg.’
