About the property

Apartment on Edinburgh's Royal Mile, Scotland - All Major Tourist Attractions close by, with a 5 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle

For a taste of historic central Edinburgh our location on the world famous Royal Mile is the perfect setting. Looking down on this cobbled pedestrianised street, the flat is on the doorstep of many historic attractions. Edinburgh Castle dominates the city skyline with its rampart looking down on medieval lanes and terraces that hold over a thousand years of history, mystery and tradition. You will also see our modern, dynamic capital which hosts international festivals and concerts and has galleries, bars and restaurants in abundance. Princes Street, Waverley Station and the bus station are all within a short walk. Whether you visit in the spring, summer or winter, Edinburgh has something for all seasons and after spending the day site seeing, open up the living room window, take a seat and do a bit of 'people watching' over the Royal Mile. More details on owner’s website.

About Jeanette Peters

We are a family owned business and look forward to providing visitors with a real home from home experience.

Our aim is to ensure you have a memorable stay in the heart of Edinburgh's world famous 'Royal Mile'. The location of our flat gives you the ideal base for your city break. You will love the vibrancy of the location and yet find the flat peaceful just as we do.

Allow us to accommodate you so you can enjoy the local history, visitor attractions, perhaps researching your family tree or a gentle stroll down through Princes Street Gardens.

We have lots of information about visitor attractions on our website but if we can help or advise you about any other aspect of your holiday please get in touch.

We look forward to personally welcoming you to Edinburgh.

Jeanette Peters purchased this apartment in 1949

Why Jeanette Peters chose Old Town

Our flat has been in our family for generations and our family ties to this historic part of the City will let you understand why we love the area.

The vibrancy of the location will win your heart but in complete contrast you will find the flat very peaceful.

What makes this apartment unique

The Royal Mile and, below it in the New Town, Princes Street and Princes Street Gardens, are best explored on foot. All of the main attractions and city centre sites are within walking distance of the flat.

After all that walking and siteseeing, open up the living room windows, take a seat and do a bit of 'people watching' over the Royal Mile.

Convenient location and roomy

  • 4 of 5

We were met at the train station by Jeanette, which was very considerate. She then oriented us to the area, walking to the apartment. There she reviewed it's features. Very thoughtful of her.

The WiFi wasn't available or if it was, was intermittent-just an FYI

Clean, roomy, safe and walking distance

  • 5 of 5

We visited Edinburgh in June 2016. Jeanette, the owner, is one of the warmest person that we met, she waited for us at the bus stop and while walking to the apartment told us a bit of Edinburgh history. The apartment size is more than enough for 2 adults, a very well equipped kitchen, washing machine and perfectly positioned to visit Edinburgh, feel the city and enjoy its food. The Royal Mile can be noisy in the evenings but the windows are double, so the nights were quiet. We definitely recommend the apartment as we had a very pleasant experience!!
