Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, sleeps 2

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

Large first floor*( *2nd floor North America) 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 bed linen, 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.

this is an amazing apartment, very comfortable, clean and quiet, very close to Princess street.

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this apartment. The location is an easy walk to restaurants and Shopping on Princess street, and the castle beyond. So comforting to come back to the apartment after touring all day to relax in such grand style. We really appreciated to added touch of milk and water in the fridge, bread and butter, and a lovely tea set. We will certainly return to this treasure of a vacation apartment in the future.

Perfect location, clean and spacious with Edinburgh at your fingertips!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The apartement has a perfect location, close to everything. It was very clean and spacious, and it also provided access to the private garden (beautiful) across the street. Very quiet and safe neighborhood, but very close to old town. We were lucky enough to be greeted by the amazing Seán who is the contactperson for the apartment, he not only was kind enough to let us drop our bags off early (as we arrived in the morning) but also gave us great tips on where to go, how to get there and awesome eats. What a kind and wonderful person, he definently set our vacation off to a great start and we are so grateful!

A few observations, the lower lock is a bit tricky to unlock, at one point I thought the neighbors might think we were trying to pick it instead of unlock it :) As the glass in the apartement is one pane (or two?) you clearly hear all the things going on on the outside and during our stay they were renovating the house behind the apartment, the circular saw does make some noise when you are sleeping in being lazy.

Overall, it was great and we will definently return.

Lovely apartment, close to downtown Edinburgh and tram

  • 4 of 5

Nice and quiet, but close to the tram and all the downtown attractions. One thing I would change would be to label the keys (what key for what door). I was looking for 1F. That is not written anywhere on any door. We were not sure which door to try the keys on. We could not figure out how to work the washing machine even with the appliance guidebook. Worked fine after speaking to the housekeeper. The bathroom could use more than one small shelf. It was a very lovely place to stay. I would recommend this place.

Perfect Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Pippa, Paul & Sean were very helpful in making sure our stay in this apartment was wonderful. They are very organized, courteous, and professional.

The apartment is (as you can see from the photos) beautiful and was very clean. It is in a great location.

The kitchen is well equipped for making quick meals and/or full dinners. There are several convenient little grocery stores nearby in Stockbridge and on Princes Street.

The washer & dryer worked great (much better than those tiny all-in-one washer/dryer units).

It was nice to have a key to access the Queen Street Gardens.

The apartment is an easy 10 minute walk from the Airlink 100 bus stop for the bus to/from the airport. And it is an easy 15-20 minute walk to either the Waverley or Haymarket train stations.

The apartment is in a very central yet quiet location; quick walk to George Street or Stockbridge.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very light, spacious and comfortable. Very nice outlook onto the private gardens. It is situated on a no through road so is very quiet. The bedroom is very large and situated to the rear of the property and so is also very quiet.

I would recommend the apartment and would stay again.
