Dalry Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We don't just rent our apartment, we share our knowledge to help you get the best out of your visit to Edinburgh.

Please use the Owner's Website link below to visit our website and get more information than we can share here.

####### 2013 Guest Comments ######

“The location was perfect for walks up to the royal mile to see museums and castles as well as being a short walk to several children's playgrounds. Grocery stores are close by and the kitchen is well equipped. We recommend this property without reservation.”

“This is a fantastic apartment at a great location in Edinburgh!”

“This was a wonderful apartment for our week stay in Edinburgh. The location is great, close to everything but situated in a quieter area. The owners thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and welcoming.”

Our modern 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment is furnished and decorated to a high standard and will make a very comfortable base for your visit. Located in Tollcross, just on the edge of the Old Town and easy walking distance of the centre, this is an ideal place to stay when visiting Edinburgh.

Location

The apartment is just off Lothian Road where you will find a wide selection of cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs and bistros – something for everyone. Nearby you have a choice of grocery stores, including the famous British “Marks & Spencer”. Local shops including a traditional butchers, wine store and French Delicatessen are just round the corner. This is also an ideal location for anyone with business in the city’s financial district or visiting Edinburgh University.

Free Parking

We have an allocated underground parking space, which in Edinburgh is a huge bonus. Access to the Western Approach Road for an easy way in/out of Edinburgh is just off Lothian Road and allows you to be at the airport in less than ½ hour.

Accommodation

The interior is very comfortable with modern furnishings and fittings. It has the added benefit of an elevator which saves climbing stairs with your luggage or shopping.

- The lounge/dining room/kitchen area is bright and spacious with wood floors. The lounge area has a flat screen TV and comfortable sofas. The dining area has a table and chairs for 4 and is adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a “range style” gas hob, dishwasher and washer - all that you will need to make life easy while on vacation.

- Bedroom 1 has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath tub. The bathroom is fully tiled and has a heated towel rail and shaver point and comes with fluffy towels. The bed is a double size with luxury linens. Built in closets provide ample storage for all your belongings. This room overlooks the courtyard behind the property and has a small balcony.

- Bedroom 2 has a King bed (US Queen) with luxury linens and overlooks the garden courtyard.

- A full tiled Shower Room is accessed off the hallway. Again with a heated towel rail, shaver point and comes with fluffy towels.

Local transport

- Access to the local bus system is just round the corner from the apartment. This is a wonderful way of getting around Edinburgh - you would expect a bus to Princes Street within 5 minutes (there is even an iPhone App to give the real time position of the buses!).

- Haymarket train station is a 15 minute walk or a very short 5 minute taxi ride away.

- Waverley Station is a 25 minute walk or 8 minutes by taxi.

- Edinburgh airport is less than 7 miles from the apartment (see our external link to Google Maps below for the suggested route - and more local information).

Included in the Price

- Edinburgh information/support before you even leave for your vacation – basic local information (tailored to your needs) can be shared by e-mail prior to your arrival.

- Fine bedlinen, luxury towels, all utilities (no added costs!), WiFi and broadband.

- Free telephone calls to landlines in over 30 countries (includes Canada and USA).

- A welcome pack of some Scottish treats with tea, coffee and milk.

- Up-to-date Tourist Information, a selection of books/Edinburgh guidebooks & maps, binoculars, umbrella and many other thoughtful extras will await you in the apartment.

This is the start of our dream! Andrew & I met while students in Edinburgh almost 30 years ago. We have always said we will return here one day after living and working in the South of England, Belgium and most recently in Virginia, USA. We bought this flat in 2010 as the first step in realizing our dream. We are waiting until our two boys finish University here in the US before we return. (Why UVA and not Edinburgh University we asked ourselves!) In the meantime we want to let others share our place and fall in love with Scotland and Edinburgh:)

Margaret Paxton purchased this apartment in 2010

We bought this apartment after months of watching the Edinburgh market. We loved the proximity to the city and the fact that it is modern (only 4 years old) so everything works and is efficient. Having an allocated parking space is a real bonus, the traffic wardens in Edinburgh are very quick, so getting a ticket is not difficult!

We aim to provide the best Scottish Hospitality Edinburgh can offer and want it to be a home from home (although we know it is much smaller than American standards), it will have everything you need to make your stay very comfortable.

4 nights at a perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The Apartment at West Tollcross is perfect, located at a silent place, but not too far from the centre.
It is 20-30 minutes’ walk to the Castle, but you can also take a bus, which is only 2 minutes away.
For self-cooking the kitchen is perfect. Supermarkets are nearby.
We got some Scottish specialities, thank you Gill.
Free international calls and Free Wireless Internet is included.
You can be sure that we take the same Apartment at our next visit.

Great apartment in a quiet, but ideal location

This has been one of the best rentals we have stayed in for quite some time. It was great to find a clean, well-furnished apartment in a quite, but convenient location. The owners have thought of everything - including converters for those traveling from other countries! There was a nice welcome basket in the apartment when we arrived, including a starter amount of water and milk. Everyone was very kind and willing to work with our needs. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay again ourselves.

Beautiful, Spacious and Comfortable Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 26, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
This was our first time renting an apartment vs. a hotel for vacation and I have to say my husband, myself and our 2-year-old had a wonderful time in Edinburgh! The apartment was a large reason why. Margaret, the owner, is very welcoming and responsive to any need you might have. She really has thought of everything in the apartment. The amenities are thoughtful and make you feel very much at home. The apartment itself is a short walk to the castle area and is in a residential area next to a school. It is perfect because it does not feel touristy and is peaceful. The space itself is large and modern...plenty of room for a small family. Thanks to Margaret for maintaining such a lovely apartment for travelers! We really enjoyed our stay and your warm hospitality.

Flat in Lothian Area Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
The flat was an excellent place to stay while in Edinburgh and touring Scotland. Public transport was a short distance and taxi was short travel distance from main Edinburgh attractions. The unit was very new and well equiped. The owner was very responsive throughout the rental process and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property.
