Stuart and Kerry's place was absolutely divine. It is exactly the type of place we'd imagined staying while in Edinburgh. The complimentary champagne, biscuits, tea and whisky were simply bonuses to the adorable flat. It is a bit of a walk from the Royal Mile and the sites there but we ultimately enjoyed being further from the businesses of Old Town. The biggest bonus is that to reach the flat, it's all downhill from the train station. After a long night getting to Scotland, that was a welcome discovery! Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

What a lovely flat! It was beautifully decorated and in a great location. Stuart and Kerry were easy to contact and kind, leaving fresh flowers for us. We had a great weekend.

Super townhouse, super location, super hosts. Comfortable, stylish and a little bit bookish. Perfect. We stayed for all of August and became regulars at Valvona & Crollas nearby on Elm Row for coffee. Perfect (again). We plan to be back.

Stuart and Kerry were wonderful hosts, incredibly responsive and accommodating. Whilst we never actually met them, getting the key was really easy and they left us lots of instructions and lovely drinks and snacks - and even free museum tickets! The flat is lovely and looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The only downsides were the very creaky - and quite small - bed which made for a broken nights sleep - and the relatively loud noise of people walking about in the flat above quite early in the morning which meant lie-ins were off the cards.

The flat from Kerry and Stuart is a very nice and elegant little flat. The room design in all rooms including the bathroom is perfectly coordinated and with lots of love for furnishing. There are several beautiful little details. We also had fresh flowers in the living and bedroom and the possibility to have a good tea and some sweets or a glass Prosecco. It was great and we really enjoyed our time in this brilliant Scottish rooms.

This home is gorgeous, and Stuart and Kerry really make the place comfortable for their guests. They offer a welcome tray with sweets, tea, and coffee, and they provide bottles of water and even a nice bottle of Prosecco. And they left us with guide books and free museum tickets! Fresh flowers in the dining area and bedroom were a lovely touch, and they even provide small shampoo and body wash in the bathroom--an unexpected and appreciated detail! Their home is conveniently located yet in a quiet residential area. Our stay here was very pleasant!
