15 minutes walking from the centre with regular buses just outside the door. Easy access to Festival venues. Comfortable bedroom in a beautifully renovated Georgian flat. Situated in the historic Georgian 'New Town' of Edinburgh. Various restaurants, antique shops and enjoyable cafes close by. The Botanic Gardens 10 minutes walk away. 68 steps climb to this top floor flat so please note if mobility is an issue. I am on hand to help with luggage!

The space

Large bedroom in a spacious and very lovely Georgian flat. There is a lounge with a real fire that you are welcome to use and a large kitchen. Flat is sunny and on the top floor (3rd). The flat has a very welcoming and friendly feel. A superb experience of Georgian Edinburgh!

Guest access

Large and comfortable lounge with a real log/peat fire, DVD player and wide selection of DVDs, a large sit-in kitchen, bathroom with a bath and built in shower, and a separate toilet. Guests are welcome to an evening fire as part of the hospitality of the flat, for longer use a contribution is requested to help cover the cost of the wood (suggested donation £5).

Interaction with guests

You will be sharing the flat with myself (the owner) and perhaps 1 or 2 other guests. I will be on hand and available to make sure you have everything you need to be comfortable and feel at home.

Other things to note

The flat is attractively positioned on the third floor. However typical of a Georgian tenement this entails a bit of a climb (there are 68 steps). So please be aware of this if mobility could be an issue. I am mostly on hand to welcome guests personally and so will help with any luggage.

A complimentary continental breakfast is provided. At other times there is tea, coffee, biscuits, bread etc in the kitchen.

Guests are very welcome to use the kitchen if they wish to make food for themselves. However there are times the kitchen will be unavailable for cooking a meal (if I have a meeting scheduled in it for example).

In the lounge is a large DVD player with a wide selection of DVDs, but please note there is no TV.

This is a great place to stay in lovely Edinburgh. Chris and Stephanie are excellent hosts. The welcome was warm; the information was accurate and helpful; and I enjoyed our conversations. I highly recommend.

Pleasant host and general accommodation conditions but a bit far from the main attractions for us, bedroom not well set up for a couple (easily fixed) and road noise even though on top floor.

It's been a small visit here in Edinburgh,thus I didn't stay very long in the flat. Chris's away and Stephanie checked me in. I do enjoy spending time with her and Colin who stays in another room. The best part is they actually got a fireplace, and Stephanie asked if I want to make a fire! See, I've been living in southwestern China and never got the chance to sit by fire to enjoy a book. What's more, Stephanie is warmhearted and she helped me with my journey plan. So is Colin who taught me how to keep the fire going. Thus I strongly recommend this flat, it really makes me feel at home!

This was my second time staying at Chris's flat and it was again a delight. I have stayed in both rooms now and they are both delightful. Chris and Steph as always were kind, warm, and accommodating. Certainly recommend!
