Nice apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights (two adults and two children). This is one of the nicest apartment we have visited in Scotland! Very clean, well maintained, close to city center with easy commute, close to shops. The owner met us when we arrived, and gave us information on the apartment. We would recomend this to other families!

Edinburgh visit April 2018

  • 5 of 5

I came with some friends from Spain for a sightseeing trip to Edinburgh. We thought that the apartment was great; the rooms were all of a good size, it was warm, had nice comfy beds and all round well equipped - including books, good tv and wi-fi.

It is a straightforward walk into the city or there is a bus stop conveniently nearby and also only a short walk away - a large supermarket on a retail centre.

The owner was very helpful and promptly answered all my questions and met us on arrival; we would definitely recommend this apt. as we really enjoyed our time there, thanks Magdalene.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights during the Fringe festival and the apartment was perfect. Good sized bedrooms, convenient location (buses to the centre very frequent and the stop is just outside) and its pretty quiet. Magdalene was very accommodating and allowed us to drop our bags off early so we could get straight into the city centre. Excellent wifi, television, kitchen etc, close to a large supermarket and parking was straightforward. Would highly recommend for a stay in Edinburgh. Thanks, Magdalene!

The apartment is well situated for a multi cultural visit to the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh with many visitor attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, The Palace of Holyrood, The Royal Yacht Brittania as well as numerous art galleries and museums.

In August the city is home to the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe when the city comes alive and the atmosphere just has to be experienced.

If wanting to tour central Scotland, the apartment is ideally situated being within one hours drive of Stirling, Glasgow Perth and Dundee.
