Overview

Photos and Description of this New Town holiday apartment

1 Bedroom, sleeps 2

We challenge you to find a more beautiful one bedroom apartment in Edinburgh!

Large first floor ( high ceilings) one bedroom flat overlooking a private garden in exclusive Georgian cul de sac, off Heriot Row.

The spacious first floor apartment comprises a large double bedroom with en suite. The kitchen area has a gas cooker/ fridge/freezer & dishwasher, and includes a utility area with washing machine & dryer.

The large living room, which overlooks the beautiful private Queen Street Gardens, has a separate dining area. All bedlinen, towels, pillows and duvets are provided.

The apartment is a few minutes from Waverley Station by taxi. Wemyss Place is just off Queen Street, which runs parallel to George Street. The main shopping area of Princes Street is within easy walking distance. The apartment also has a secure parking bay at the rear of the building.

The apartment is in a very quiet area and yet so close to all the amenities and attractions, within walking distance such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, with Holyrood Palace a short drive away. There are many bars, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques several minutes away in Rose Street.

Edinburgh's famous castle is especially beautiful. Upon entering the city, it commands immediate attention. The eye of the visitor is drawn to the impressive structure rising high above everything else on its sheer granite cliffs. There are incredible panoramic views from the upper stories of the castle, including a clear view of the distant sea. The castle sits high on the huge rock formation that juts out as if in defiance of any who would seek to invade Edinburgh. Castle Rock, as it is known, is inaccessible on three sides, and has a long, descending ridge on the fourth side.

Edinburgh is filled with historic and literary association: John Knox, Mary Queen of Scots, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson), Alexander Graham Bell, Sir Walter Scott, and Bonnie Prince Charlie are all part of its past.

Great property in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location and a comfortable, well managed property. We were walking distance to most city attractions but enjoyed the quietness of a cul-de-sac. The property was nicer than we had expected. The management even left some basic supplies in the fridge to get us started (margarine, milk, fruit etc). I would definitely enjoy staying again and highly recommend this property to those traveling to Edinburgh.

New Years Eve 2014/15

  • 5 of 5

On our bucket list was to New Year in Edinburgh, at least once, so we decided it would be 2014, after perusing various options, hotels, B&Bs we went on the rentals website. As some of you know its always a bit of a risk, so you are reliant on the descriptions, photos and and reviews such as this at the first instance on any property. I am pleased to say out of many properties this stood out, it was in the right place (very right if you needed to be be near the Princes Street area but not on top of it - literally 10 mins walk) and it was an apartment in a beautiful old building, with access to a green area if you so wished. The apartment itself was lovely as you can see, it was very spacious and equipped to a high standard. All the guide notes were clear - including the parking which for us great as we travelled by car. If i changed anything it would be where the TV is located its a small thing but for me I would like it in the living area. The company we booked through were very helpful in responding to questions and everything went smoothly, so would definitely use them again too. All in all a great new year with great memories.

A great relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this accommodation in Edinburgh. It was an exceptional location, comfortable and clean. My husband and I travel quiet a bit and value accommodations which cater to relaxation, convenience and cleanliness.

The location was most enjoyable; we appreciated the park view in the morning during coffee and for evenings; there is also private access to the park. Parking was included and conveniently located. It is a very quiet and secure building, which we also liked.

We stayed for over a week and never tired of the location or the room. It is minutes walking distance from the main town centre, and to all the shopping, dining, and highlights of Edinburgh. Yet the location is in the quieter residential zone of New Town, so when you walk outside there are a fewer people on the sidewalk.

The management team’s attention to detail was faultless, in addition to ensuring some breakfast provisions were on hand, there were brochures about the area, contact lists and detailed instructions.

Pippa, Paul & Sean were helpful and easy to communicate with before and during our stay.

The kitchen was very well equipped with pans, plenty of soaps, paper towels, toilet paper. The bed was great - firm, but not hard and certainly not worn. Better than hotel quality linens. Pillows were good. We had no trouble maintaining temperatures.

All in all, a great place that we would certainly stay at again.

Nice. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

The '1 F" position in the building need to be more

appropriately designated-nothing on the door to

indicate the site. Lights in hall way were never on.....

dark at night when we returned.

Nice to have "some" coffee capsules-however, could not

buy any additional at the store. Appreciated the basic supplies.
