Hi there Jayne, how are you doing? This email is for thank you for the very nice stay in Edinburgh, we loved the location, much better than the other in Rose st in my opinion, and the apartment was very clean, we found complimentary tea, and other kind things in the kitchen, the bath was very good. We may have to return to Edinburgh on the future, because there is so much to do yet! We will for sure stay in the same place again! If you have a place were I can post a review I would like to do so. Thanks again,

The apartment was spotless. The instructions to get in were clear. The owner checked to make sure we had got in and to make sure we had enjoyed our stay. The apartment had all aplliances needed to cook and clean if needed. We were provided with towels and bedding. The apartment is in a very central location, great for nightlife and restaurants. The price was very reasonable and definitely worth the money.

shared.user_profile_image Fredrik This flat is ideally located for exploring the sights of the old town, and is right on Grassmarket. The flat is cosy and comfortable. Good value. The bedroom, kitchen and living room/dining area have limited space, but I liked the layout. The kitchen is well equiped, but I didn't use it much. I enjoyed the restaurants on Leven St and Brougham St, not far away from Grassmarket. Easy communication with the host. September 2015 The apartment have a perfect location to walk around old town, train station, pubs, restaurant and one minute to Grassmarket and five for the Royal Mille. All inside was clean,towels and crockery available to make a lunch or dinner to take a rest after a very busy day. Very happy with the apartment, thank yo very much. September 2015

The apartment's location if fantastic. Great view of the castle just steps away. Easy walking in the old town area with grocery store right down the street. The Waverly train station was a 15 minute beautiful walk with pubs and restaurants along the way. One minute to Grassmarket and five to the Royal Mille. Our day tour with Hairy Coo picked us up early morning at the bus stop 1 minute down the street. The apartment was compact with a good layout, comfortable bed, and the kitchen was well stocked with all you need to cook meals. Very clean. Communication was quick and easy with Jayne. Good internet and TV. Highly recommend this place. October 2015

The apartment is nicely furnished and has all you need for a short stay, including an iron and hair dryer. Overall, it was clean and we felt comfortable. Furthermore, our hosts were kind and responded very quickly to our requests. The location is optimal in the old town. October 2015

This was an incredible place to stay and the hosts were wonderful! I loved the flat which was even nicer than the pictures. The instructions were clear and accurate and I found it perfectly fine. I loved the neighbourhood as well as it was easy walking to all the shops, minutes from the Royal Mile and there are amazing restaurants and shops just steps from the door. I would highly recommend this place!!” This flat was perfect for my trip. It is a darling one bedroom with a kitchen and full living room. The internet was awesome and everything was perfect. The kitchen was fully equipped and Tony and Jayne gave the best directions and were responsive to my texts upon arrival. I used to live in Edinburgh and so I knew the neighbourhood I wanted to stay central to shops and restaurants. It is just steps from everything you would need and I could walk everywhere. The place was super secure and safe and although the restaurant next door got an early delivery one morning, it was super quiet and peaceful. I had everything I needed staying here and would recommend it 120%. I hope to be back soon! ”

The apartment was exactly as shown in pictures. The place was really cosy and ideal for couples travelling to Edinburg. We found everything we needed and the apartment was tidy and clean. The location of the apartment is also excellent since it is in a walking distance from all the main attractions in the city, and there are many pubs and restaurants around, but without being noisy. We really had a great experience in Tony and Jayne's apartment and would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the city. ”
