We loved our stay! The flat was very clean and our room was very "roomy" and large. Situated in a great location near to the train, tram, and the Royal Mile. Thanks!

Margaret's flat was delightful. The bed was extremely comfortable and with only 4-5 hours of night at this time of year, the shutters were essential. This is an historic building! The breakfast supplies were VERY appreciated, and right next door is a fresh produce and organic food shop. Great bars and eating places abound in this neighborhood. The Olive Branch is a must try. Would definitely stay with Margaret again. She was present and we rented just the room, but she is busy and discreet and we had the sitting room and kitchen to ourselves much of the time. Lovely!!
