Highly recommend a stay at Colin's place. Clean and plenty spacious, even for an adult family of four. Great views towards Arthur's Seat in the morning as the sun hits it. It's within easy walking distance for anything you could possibly want to do in Edinburgh! Highly recommend.

This is a fantastic apartment located perfectly off the Royal Mile. Our stay was wonderful and memories were made that will last a life time. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay central in Old Town Edinburgh. However, be aware there are several floors worth of stairs to climb each time you are going to coming.

The perfect spot for a family of 5 visiting during the Fringe. Great communication; easy check-in and our; AAA+ location; beautifully renovated & furnished; neat & tidy; well equipped kitchen. The accommodation couldn't have been better. Highly recommend! One pleasant surprise was the availability of parking at the hotel car park across the street during the Festival.

This was a great location to be in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh. Right off the main Royal Mile yet on a quiet street. The apartment was immaculate with modern new kitchen and bath. All of Colin's communications and instructions were clear and easy to follow. Very comfortable after the 4 flight walk up to the apartment.

Stayed for a couple of nights during the Fringe Festival. Superb location, bang in the middle of everything. A lovely apartment on the fourth floor pretty much as advertised with a great view of Arthurs seat out of the kitchen window. Would highly recommend this place if you are looking to visit Edinburgh any time soon....
