Overview

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.

A great relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this accommodation in Edinburgh. It was an exceptional location, comfortable and clean. My husband and I travel quiet a bit and value accommodations which cater to relaxation, convenience and cleanliness.

The location was most enjoyable; we appreciated the park view in the morning during coffee and for evenings; there is also private access to the park. Parking was included and conveniently located. It is a very quiet and secure building, which we also liked.

We stayed for over a week and never tired of the location or the room. It is minutes walking distance from the main town centre, and to all the shopping, dining, and highlights of Edinburgh. Yet the location is in the quieter residential zone of New Town, so when you walk outside there are a fewer people on the sidewalk.

The management team’s attention to detail was faultless, in addition to ensuring some breakfast provisions were on hand, there were brochures about the area, contact lists and detailed instructions.

Pippa, Paul & Sean were helpful and easy to communicate with before and during our stay.

The kitchen was very well equipped with pans, plenty of soaps, paper towels, toilet paper. The bed was great - firm, but not hard and certainly not worn. Better than hotel quality linens. Pillows were good. We had no trouble maintaining temperatures.

All in all, a great place that we would certainly stay at again.

Nice. Good location.

  • 4 of 5
The '1 F" position in the building need to be more
appropriately designated-nothing on the door to
indicate the site. Lights in hall way were never on.....
dark at night when we returned.

Nice to have "some" coffee capsules-however, could not
buy any additional at the store. Appreciated the basic supplies.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I love to rent apartments when we travel and this property was one of the best we've seen. The location is very convenient to New Town and not too far from the Royal Mile. We prepared breakfasts and two dinners in the well appointed kitchen. Other evenings we found nice eateries on George Street, two blocks away. We would end our long days with a night cap by the fireplace.

We would love to return to Edinburgh and this comfy apartment.

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!
