This apartment was in a great location at the foot of the castle. Easy walking distance to everything, Edinburgh is not a large city. Communication with Fleur prior to our stay was great. We did not meet her personally as she was out of town the day we arrived and we had an early exit on departure day, but we picked up the key st her shop which is basically across the street and the guest book clearly lays out all the info. Plus we had her contact info if we had needed her. Everything was clean and we appreciated the washing machine to do a load of laundry on our last day. No dryer, but there is a drying rack and all of our stuff was quick dry anyway and completely dry by morning. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Fleur!

Everything from booking to checkout went like clockwork although we didn't actually meet Fleur to say hello or goodbye. The apartment is great for visiting Edinburgh, it's clean, surprisingly quiet, comfortable and the location is great. Thanks for the stay :)
