Tony and Jayne's place is fantastic. The pictures do not do their flat justice. I loved the views from the windows and thought that everything was so comfortable. I never had any problem communicating with them as all of my messages were replied to on the same day, often within an hour or so. All of their directions were easy to follow. It is also close to everything. I never needed any sort of transportation while I was in Edinburgh. I would definitely stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stay in the apartment. The check-in was simple and I really appreciate how kindly Tony took care that everything is alright. The apartment is so nice and comfortable! You could tell that it is furnished and decorated with heart! The laundry smelled freshly washed and everything was clean. BUT there is a massive drawback and I think I have to mention that. The noises from Grassmarket at night couldn't let you sleep. If I wouldn't be such a sound sleeper, tired from the days anyway, I would have left the apartment after the first night!! Except from that everything was perfect and I would always recommend that apartment in consideration that you don't have a light sleep ;-)

Nice flat, good location. However, hotel-style business outlook without hotel-style service.

Great location, central and right next to Edinburgh Castle and the amazing Camera Obscura. Hosts stay out of your way, which me and my friend personally like, but are reachable if you need them. The flat was clean and spacious. All in all a great place for our first visit in Edinburgh!

We are a family business giving personal attention if you are looking for an apartment for a family or business trip visiting Edinburgh. For the same price of a hotel, why not have a great stay in your very own apartment and have freedom, privacy and feel local.
