Overview

About the property

Queen Street

These luxurious flats are located in an elegant Georgian townhouse, less than a 5 minute walk from central Princes Street and provide a very high standard of accommodation.

The first floor apartment (no. 2) is bi-annually inspected by the Scottish Tourist Board and awarded 5 stars - a world class grading. The flat is superbly equipped with a 43' plasma screen TV and an integrated sound system supplying music to every room in the flat. The 3 large windows overlook the delightful private Queen Street gardens for which a key is provided. This elegant room benefits from a remote controlled gas coal-effect fire and the two large sofas convert into beds should guests be staying over. The modern kitchen has granite worktops and is fully equipped with Siemens washer/dryer, Siemens dishwasher, two Siemens ovens - one with microwave - fridge freezer, waste disposal unit and wall-mounted LCD TV. There is a 3 ring electric induction hob and a large gas ring to choose from. The luxury shower has a ceiling 'drench' head and 4 body jets. The bedroom, situated to the quiet rear of the property, has a fantastic antique 4 poster bed, fitted wardrobes and dressing table. Clock radio, hair dryer, iron and ironing board are provided as is free Wi-Fi.

The ground floor apartment (no 1) has a similarly impressive living room but has the added feature of an early 19th century wall mural. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The stylish bedroom faces the quiet rear of the building. Please note that the shower room is accessed from the bedroom.

The apartment overlooks the private Queen Street Gardens for which a key is provided. This is a peaceful haven in the middle of the city centre with manicured lawns, mature trees and an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs. There is small lake with an island in the gardens which is reputed to have given Robert Louis Stevenson (who lived on the other side of the gardens when he was a boy) the idea for his book 'Treasure Island'.

Perfect home away from home.

Wonderful location; quiet, relaxing home while I was in Edinburgh. Francois met on time and went over everything. I would stay there again.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for being at the heart of the New Town of Edinburgh. Delightful to stay in somewhere with such Georgian character but with all mod cons - toasty warm in December and a very comfortable bed. Although there is a fairly busy road outside, the bedroom was quiet and the sittingroom overlooked the gardens on Queen Street making it feel very airy and light - not always to be taken for granted in Edinburgh!

Dealing with Francois was delightful and it was great to be welcomed by him to the apartment.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend the apartment.

The property is an excellent standard

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a wonderful time staying in apartment 1 (ground floor flat). It was so well furnished and in an excellent location which was a very short walk away from the main street and all the shops.

We will definitely be coming back here!

Beautiful Georgian flat in central Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights in December and delighted to find this spacious one bedroom apartment on Queen Street. The very central location overlooks a private garden belonging to the properties along this elegant street. It is however a busy and noisy road. The bedroom and fully modernised stylish bathroom are very quiet as they overlook an internal courtyard .

Large living room nicely furnished and small well equipped kitchen. Perfect for couple who want a comfortable base where they can chill after visiting Edinburgh.

Francois was very helpful and welcoming. We will certainly recommend this apartment to friends.

This apartment had charm and luxury!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was delightful. The security on the first floor felt just as safe as we'd hope to feel on the 3rd floor. The shower was spectacular and we spent several nights eating in and relaxing. The laundry was extremely useful (note that a cycle takes up to 3 hours for the wash and dry combo unit) and we left with clean clothes to continue our Scottish adventure. Positively lovely.
