“Great Location, Beautiful Flat!”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

With so many flats to look through for staying in Edinburgh, we wanted something close to the train station and the St. Andrews Sq. bus station. What a perfect choice. Upon arrival, we realized the location was even better than expected. Bus Station only a 10 min walk and the train station was only down a few flights of stairs in Advocates Close and across the street! The flat is right on the Royal mile, a few minutes walk to the Edinburgh Castle and pretty much any tourist bus stop to take you around the city! The flat had everything we needed and Derek did a great job of meeting us on arrival based on our schedule and giving us great information of the surrounding landscape! Parking is a bit of a walk, but only 15 minutes and it makes a huge difference as on street parking is not as available as some might say it is. Next time I head to Edinburgh I am looking here first.

“Excellent location, everything you need”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is the Advocates Close apartment, and my favourite place to stay in Edinburgh. The only time I don't stay here is if it's booked out. There is street noise during busy hours in the lounge as you would expect being so central, but bedroom is quiet. It certainly doesn't affect my stays here.

All amenities, clean, bright, excellent location on the Royal Mile.

Thanks for another excellent stay in Edinburgh Pillowstops :)

“Repeat stay, highly recommended”

Pillowstops and it's owners are the kind of place and people you wonder whether to review, as you just might not be able to book again next time! I missed out last trip, as they were fully booked, so this was my second stay, and will be booking again for next year.

Busy, central location on the Royal Mile, well appointed, easy to reach everything in the centre of Edinburgh. Not a quiet location, but bedroom has extra glazing so is quiet. I like the security too.

WIFI is excellent, everything required is in this apartment, and it's clean, modern and light, love it.
