####### 2014 Guest Comments ######

“This apartment was way beyond what we expected, if we didn't have sightseeing planned I would have been very content to just relax in the apartment. The apartment is very centrally located to many of the popular spots in Edinburgh. I would definitely come back here and would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for a little more room than a hotel room”

“My parents, husband, and I really enjoyed our stay at the West Tollcross apartment. The apartment was clean and modern, and all of the appliances worked well. The location was very convenient, and it was nice to have an elevator. You can walk to most of the major sites in Edinburgh”

“This flat was the perfect 'home base' for our golf trip to Scotland and visit to Edinburgh. We wanted a flat in central Edinburgh with parking and the accommodations could not have been better.Overall, we could not have been happier with the accommodations. We definitely recommend this flat and Margaret as a host. ”

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.

About Margaret Paxton

This is the second stage of our dream! Andrew & I met while students in Edinburgh 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 our first flat in 2010 as the first step in realizing our dream. We returned to the UK in October 2012 and are beginning to develop our Edinburgh business. We want others share to our place and fall in love with Scotland and Edinburgh:)

Margaret Paxton purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Margaret Paxton chose Tollcross

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 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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were met by the manager of the property who was very friendly and welcoming. The property is very clean, well presented and a true reflection of the photos. It is also very well located within the city making it easy to walk anywhere. We really enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous apartment.

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples travelling together. This apartment was fabulous for us. The apartment was beautifully appointed, the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need.
The location was great, a 15 minute or so walk to the city centre, although, while we were there, it was a bit wet on a few occasions, and a cab was just £5 to or from the main tourist areas.
We cooked a few meals, and it was very easily done in the well appointed kitchen.
The information given before our arrival was the best I have ever had, and our security deposit was returned very promptly.
I would absolutely recommend this apartment.

2nd stay at Tollcross

  • 5 of 5
this was our second time at Tollcross. The apartment is still up to the excellent standards. Nicely equipped, and very clean. We were met by the property manager who let us in the garage and apartment and was able to answer any questions. The location is very convenient to the center of town, within walking distance to all the major attractions in Edinburgh. It is also very handy to the university if you are visiting for that reason. The parking garage is very secure and easy to use. We were able to return to the apartment during the day if we needed to just relax for a while. We also prepared dinner and lunch On the same street is a very small restaurant called Indaba, excellent tapas. We also enjoyed eating at the Devils Advocate, Beehive Inn and Sheeps Heid.We hope to return again.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5
I come from Edinburgh and therefore know the city extremely well. I wanted an apartment close to my friends and Tollcross fitted the bill.

The apartment is extremely well equipped and surprisingly spacious for a new build. It is well located and in excellent condition and faultless cleanliness. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

A Fring weekend in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two wonderful day to enjoy the Fring events. This apartment was wonderful. Even better than we hoped. The listing photos were accurate and the amenities were wonderful. Very clean and well maintained. There is parking under the building which was very convenient for us and the building is safe and locked. We were able to walk into the city for all events. The owner was very helpful in answering any of our question and we were met at the apartment by the apartment manager who was warm and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this property. Our only regret is that our stay was to short.

We are delighted you found everything to be better than described, just what we want for our guests. Come back soon.

Wonderful apartment, spotlessly clean and in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't fault anything even if we wanted to. Even better and bigger than it appeared on the photos. Plenty of room for the pair us and our two seven year old grandsons. Gill was lovely and very helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to our family and friends. We would definitely choose this apartment again on our next holiday to Edinburgh.
