OFFICIAL 5 STAR SCOTTISH TOURIST BOARD RATED 2014 WITH PARKING

New Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, sleeps 2

We challenge you to find a more beautiful one bedroom apartment in Edinburgh!

Large first floor ( high ceilings) one bedroom flat overlooking a private garden in exclusive Georgian cul de sac, off Heriot Row.

The spacious first floor apartment comprises a large double bedroom with en suite. The kitchen area has a gas cooker/ fridge/freezer & dishwasher, and includes a utility area with washing machine & dryer.

The large living room, which overlooks the beautiful private Queen Street Gardens, has a separate dining area. All bedlinen, towels, pillows and duvets are provided.

The apartment is a few minutes from Waverley Station by taxi. Wemyss Place is just off Queen Street, which runs parallel to George Street. The main shopping area of Princes Street is within easy walking distance. The apartment also has a secure parking bay at the rear of the building.

The apartment is in a very quiet area and yet so close to all the amenities and attractions, within walking distance such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, with Holyrood Palace a short drive away. There are many bars, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques several minutes away in Rose Street.

Edinburgh's famous castle is especially beautiful. Upon entering the city, it commands immediate attention. The eye of the visitor is drawn to the impressive structure rising high above everything else on its sheer granite cliffs. There are incredible panoramic views from the upper stories of the castle, including a clear view of the distant sea. The castle sits high on the huge rock formation that juts out as if in defiance of any who would seek to invade Edinburgh. Castle Rock, as it is known, is inaccessible on three sides, and has a long, descending ridge on the fourth side.

Edinburgh is filled with historic and literary association: John Knox, Mary Queen of Scots, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson), Alexander Graham Bell, Sir Walter Scott, and Bonnie Prince Charlie are all part of its past.

Perfect place to stay in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
This property was outstanding in every way. We had high hopes from the listing description and were not disappointed. The apartment is beautifully decorated, spacious, well-appointed, clean, well-maintained and the location is wonderful. The manager provided excellent customer service before and after our stay. We would highly recommend this property to friends or relatives and will definitely plan to stay there again on our next visit to Edinburgh. We attended multiple productions at the Fringe Festival which we truly enjoyed as well as visiting the city's art galleries. We would recommend the Queen's Arm restaurant on Frederick Street.

Amazing Stay in Edinburgh!

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was relaxing, clean and spacious. After a long day of sightseeing and walking through town, it was nice for my husband and I to come "home" to a quiet apartment and take a rest before heading back out for dinner and a late night walk. Only those with a key to the gate can use the Queen's Street Gardens, so at night we had the whole garden to ourselves, which was quite romantic. Restaurants, shopping and the Castle are close by. We only needed public transportation to get to and from the airport. It was a long walk to get to Holyroodhouse, but it was well worth it. Along the way we browsed through shops, took in the architecture of the buildings and rested our feet at Patisserie Valerie (lovely pastries and sandwiches). Also, don't miss eating at the Cafe at the Palace, the strawberry tart was delicious! Working the rental details out with Paul and Pippa was easy and there were flowers on the dining room table and fruit and water in kitchen upon our arrival. We felt welcome and had an amazing time visiting Edinburgh!

Exceptional Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable flat located on a quiet street. Just a short walk (20 to 30 minutes) to all the sights of "Old Town". Tour bus drop off / pick up near by. We loved it! The people were so friendly and helpful. The flat was clean with high end apppliances and included everything we needed for the week (except groceries). Everything was just as advertised. Many thanks to our hosts Paul, Pippa and Sean, they were great!

Splendid Accomodations

  • 5 of 5
Listing description did not do this property justice. Perfectly located to explore the city, no through traffic on the street means peaceful evenings, the private park directly across from the property was a jewel. This simply and beautifully appointed apartment will make you feel special. The property management team gives exemplary customer service and are to be commended for their assistance. You will be satisfied and delighted with your stay.

Fabulous flat in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with HomeAway and we were bit anxious that the property wouldn't be as wonderful as it looked. No worries. It was fabulous! A very clean, gracious, comfortable, quiet, sun filled, large flat. The cute renovated kitchen had every modern convenience one could want . The large bedroom and bathroom both had wonderful huge windows and nice linens. Plenty of big fluffy towels and a towel warmer as well. A full size washer and separate dryer were tucked in a closet if you needed to do laundry. The flat was less than a ten minute taxi ride from the train station and once there you could easily walk to pretty much everything. Our favourite part was the lovely living room. Very high ceilings and three huge windows overlooking the park it was the perfect spot for breakfast while planning the day and the comfy couches a perfect place to sit and relax with a drink in front of the fire at the end of the day. Any questions were promptly answered by polite and friendly management staff. You felt they truly wanted you to have a wonderful time. The hefty deposit was swiftly refunded with the return of the keys.
I can't think of a nicer place to stay while visiting the city and would highly recommend this property. Our only regret was that our stay wasn't long enough!
