“Perfect location and all the facilities you need”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Enjoyed our stay very much which was over the Edinburgh Fringe period - so the apartment was in a perfect location, including everything we required to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Great facilities and everything very clean. Had a great introduction to the apartment from the owner/manager and was possible to contact at any time should we have questions or queries.

“Perfect Stay”

We can't fault anything about this accommodation. Pete made the booking process easy and was pleased to accommodate our late arrival. The accommodation exceeded our expectations, with the arrival pack of groceries and added bonus. Sitting back and enjoying the Tattoo firework display through the lounge window whilst enjoying the complimentary whisky was a highlight. We can't recommend this accommodation highly enough.

“Great apartment; ticks all the boxes”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

You will not be disappointed if you book this apartment and in fact will be so very happy you did. The host (Peter) is fantastic: friendly, helpful and goes the extra mile in making your stay perfect. He kindly provided more than enough for our initial breakfast (croissants, porridge, milk, tea/coffee, juice) and was very helpful in giving tips about visiting the area. The apartment itself is very well appointed with all the conveniences you'll need for your stay and the washing machine was easy to use. It is in a great location as it's close to Grassmarket restaurants, cafes, shops and also the Castle and the Royal Mile (more shops, restaurants, cafes). We were able to easily walk everywhere including the more modern shopping area around Princes St. There is a supermarket on the next corner (left) which has everything you'll need. The apartment was very clean, quiet, warm and inviting.

My sister, friend and I (27-30 yrs old) stayed in Peters lovely apartment for a week. It is in the perfect location for public transportation and to walk to the Grassmarket, Edinburgh Castle and we even walked to the Royal Mile and Arthurs Seat. There is not one bad thing I can say about this apartment. We got in really early and he met us before our scheduled time to check in. It was extremely clean and well taken care of, I felt right at home and better than I normally do in hotels in the states. I have never booked anything off of Trip Advisor so this was a wonderful first time experience. I read reviews first and gave this place a try because of all of the great comments, it definitely lived up to everything people have written!

If I ever stay in Edinburgh again (I want to visit the Highlands next!) I will definitely stay at Peters!!!

Thank you for making our first trip to the UK a wonderful experience.
