Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

This delightful newly renovated apartment is a historic gem within Riddle's Court, a 16th century merchant's house on the Royal Mile. The bedroom, with its painted beams, was once the location of a dinner party hosted by King James VI of Scotland. It is now a bright, warm and comfortable flat with a tasteful mix of traditional and modern furnishings. It is 2 minutes from Edinburgh Castle and is surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes and bars and is close to trains, buses and trams.

Beautiful apartment in an excellent location with so much history. They provided a lovely comfy cot for our toddler and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We would love to go back in the future.

The photographs simply don’t do this apartment justice. If you love history, you must treat yourself and book a stay. Although you are right in the heart of the City there is no night time noise. Perfect location would highly recommend.

We stayed here after our wedding at Riddle’s Court and it was the best honeymoon suite we could have asked for. Stylish set up, impeccably clean and in such a wonderful, historic building. Thank you to the team for making our stay so perfect.

Really lovely flat, excellent location. The bathroom didn’t measure up to the rest of the flat but it was still really lovely and I’d stay there again without question!
