“Perfect base for a perfect trip”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in Cockburn Street for 3 nights and whilst it wasn't our first time in Edinburgh I can say it was easily our favourite. The change from staying in hotels to having somewhere you can actually call a home from home was perfect for us.

The apartment is brilliantly located, but the location isn't everything - its well decorated and has everything you need. I was concerned that (as with most places) the photos on the website would over-sell the actual property, but they didn't.

Throw in a very helpful and approachable owner and we had such a perfect stay.

The next time I'm in Edinburgh I will certainly check to see if this place is available. I can't rate it highly enough and will recommend it to anyone who is heading to Old Town.

“Fantastic apartment.”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Had a lovely stay in this beautiful apartment. Close by to all tourist attractions and shops. The beds were lovely and comfortable. Great to have bath towels which actually fit round your body, not like the ones you get in some places which are little more than an oversized hand towel. I would readily recommend this apartment to all as I couldn't fault it.

“Nice little flat, perfect for a short break”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I enjoyed staying here - in the centre of the town, but no traffic noise. A stone's throw from all the attractions in the city, spacious living room and nice red themed kitchen.
Ideal for those on a small break, also has wifi included.
