About Derek Gibb
Pillowstops is run my husband and wife team Catherine and Derek Gibb. "As a family we have used self catering properties around the world for our own holidays and know how important it is to make sure that when you arrive you are not disappointed with your choice of holiday accommodation. The two main areas of disappointment that we have found are location and standard! The apartments that we offer are situated in Edinburgh's no 1 historic tourist street being the Royal Mile and Grassmarket area. Our apartments are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard exactly as we would want to find ourselves when going on holiday. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.
Derek Gibb purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Derek Gibb chose Old Town
Brilliant location on Edinburgh`s number one tourist street. So much to see and do all on your door step. Main attractions all within walking distance and in fact you could walk to the seaside in about 60 minutes if reasonably fit otherwise take a bus in 30 minutes. Main train station Waverley is a 5 minute walk and the Bus station is a 10 minute walk. There many flats described as being on the Royal Mile which are not, this one is !

Excellent apartment in the heart of Royal Mile
This place did not disappoint! We were very pleased with the apartment. It was spacious and well-maintained. Kitchen was well stocked with needed pots/pans, etc. The bedrooms were very nice and beds comfortable. Nice, short walk from Waverley Station with so much around. Unfortunately with cancellations and reductions in service, we had to leave early. We would of loved to stay our allowed time. If we do come back, this is a great place to come back to. Thank you Derek for the great accommodation!
Would stay again and plan to do so.
Great base to explore the old
We loved the flats location in the heart of the Royal Mile. It was convenient for exploring and walking the city.
The property is ideally situated and beautifully appointed. The manager, Derek, was immediately available when we had a question. I would caution anyone with physical challenges, the spiral stairs are not easy for hauling up luggage. Otherwise, we loved the place!
The property was as mentioned and we enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh and in the apartment. Something pretty much beyond control is the street noise but we can tell that the property owner has taken some steps to mitigate the situation.
Hi, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and all was good for you. As you say there is some noise as that is the penalty for the exceptional city centre location. The bedroom to the High Street does have the secondary glazing to assist. Welcome back anytime in the future.
Wonderful situation in centre of Edinburgh`s historic Old Town. Tour buses, walking tours, libraries, shows, live music in pubs, shops, restaurants, cafes, Castle, Palace, Parliament, Arthur Seat (hill), Botanic Gardens, Camera Obsura, Mary Kings Close etc etc etc
