Uniquely located on the edge of a peaceful park, it is only a short stroll (just over a mile), or 5 minutes by bus, to Edinburgh's city centre and all the main attractions. The apartment overlooks private gardens and lush, green parkland - offering peace and tranquillity after busy days' sightseeing! Guests can enjoy sitting in the private garden, which has secluded seating areas, and is teeming with birds and squirrels - as well as the night-time strolls of our resident fox!

We - Debbie and Philip - live in Pilrig House and personally warmly welcome all our guests. We are also on-hand to offer advice and assistance throughout your stay, should you require it.
We could add hundreds of 'owner-added' reviews from our apartment Guestbooks - but, we prefer to let our guests choose to add their own reviews - we feel, that way, you can be 100% assured of the authenticity of their comments and star grading awarded to their stay with us! On our own website, you can read over 100 additional independent reviews, and view our Guestbook comments.
Open all year. The apartment is non-smoking, but you are welcome to smoke outside. And, sorry, no pets. We have a 3-night minimum stay/price policy, except in August (Edinburgh Festival) - 7 nights; May/June/July - 4 nights; & Christmas/New Year - 7 nights.
Please view our extremely competitive nightly rates and our reduced weekly rates. You will note that we do not try to seduce you by giving 'per person per night' rates on the opening listing details - we feel this is disingenuous - we state our true minimum nightly and weekly rate - which has nop hidden 'add-ons'.
Discounts (on nightly rates) for longer stays:
2 weeks - 15%
3 weeks - 20%
4 weeks or longer - 25% ( do ask - we are flexible and sometimes offer a greater discount if the stay is for low season!)
We also offer all solo travellers 10% discount on our nightly rates!
Note: Do check our Park and Balfour Apartments' availability if the Garden Apartment is already booked - we can offer a discount for a 1 or 2-person stay!
Bookings - Payment
For bookings of 7 nights or less, we ask for payment on booking. For bookings exceeding 7 nights, we ask for 50% payment on booking, and 50% 8 weeks before your stay. We send an online payment request, payable by debit or credit card.
We ask that all prospective guests read our Conditions of Rental on our website before completing a Booking Form - our Cancellation Policy is clearly stated on that page.
