This is the second year we have taken this apartment for the festival. It is spacious, clean, well appointed and ideally located for exploring Edinburgh whether you are visiting the festival or not. Probably not suitable for the disabled ( 2nd floor, no lift) but, provided stairs don't bother you, a fabulous apartment.

This is an exceptionally clean, bright and comfortable flat. The hosts are really kind and thoughtful, and go out of their way to accommodate their guests and fit in with their needs. We have stayed here twice and have found Emily and Nick extremely welcoming and friendly on both occasions. We have no hesitation in recommending this property very highly.

The accommodation was absolutely beautiful. I spent 4 days here with my 15 year old granddaughter and we both loved the place. The beds were so comfortable and we slept so well. Even with the Military Tattoo happening outside our window, it was quiet at night. A short walk in any direction finds a myriad of shopping, markets and food outlets. After 3 days of walking this very hilly town (every downhill means a challenging uphill later!) and climbing many stairs, it was wonderful to return each night to the comfort of our beautiful apartment. I would highly recommend this stunning place to anyone wanting a central location in Edinburgh with views across the city and of the Castle across the road. We came for the Fringe Festival and our experience was of a vibrant place with many happy and extremely helpful people. Thank you Emily and Nick for providing this fabulous opportunity. We leave with happy memories. P.S. Just be aware of the 47 spiral steps up to the apartment. (We counted!) Takes a bit of effort even for a 15 year old , let alone a 61 year old, at the end of a long day. And getting heavy suitcases up and down was a challenge. But... we managed!
