This boutique 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Edinburgh is very spacious, 120 sqm and in the lower ground level of a handsome Georgian townhouse in the centre, New Town of Edinburgh moments from Princes Street. The accommodation has been converted into a modern self-catering apartment by the owner who lives above. It is located opposite the lovely Queen Street Gardens and just around the corner is North Castle Street which looks straight up to the majestic Castle. From the apartment you can walk virtually anywhere in central Edinburgh and there are an abundance of places to shop, explore and eat and drink in round about. The apartment is in the heart of the New Town so the galleries and museums are a stones throw away. Attractions such as the Castle and the hussle and bussle of Royal Mile are only a 10 minutes walk away.
Please note: The apartment is rented out on a bedroom basis. For example, 1 or 2 people booking reserve 1 bedroom. 3 or 4 people booking reserve two bedrooms and 5 booking reserve 3 bedrooms. During the festival in August the owner only accepts bookings for 7 nights or more.
The entrance to the holiday apartment is through gates in the railings down stone steps (with handrail). There are two double and one single bedroom, shower room, large kitchen/living room and access through French doors to a lovely courtyard where you can sit outside, fantastic in the sumer months. In addition, keys are available to the private gardens across the street and the owner is on hand to advise on local shops and restaurants, or anything else to make your stay enjoyable. The apartment is a great choice for a family or a group who are looking for a large apartment in the centre of Edinburgh with 3 bedrooms to provide privacy.
We were extreme!y happy with the accomodation. The facilities were excellent - large well equiped kitchen with Aga, all items for breakfast were provided when we arrived, bookcase full of interesting books.
The hosts were friendly and very helpful
The flat is in an excellent situation, close to all the sights and the gardens would be lovely in summer.
There are only one loo and one shower room which was a slight disadvantage when 5 people are staying
I would give the accomodation 4..8 out of 5.
