"Magical Edinburgh"


self catering edinburgh Reviewed August 14, 2013 


We have stayed at this particular Apartment over numerous years. The Grassmarket Apartment is very cosy and has great views of Edinburgh Castle, from the living room and bedroom. We find the Apartment suits us really well, as it has all the mod-cons and therefore if you did not want to go out, it is the perfect place to relax and chill out. The Grassmarket Apartment is situated within the Grassmarket area and is in an ideal location, as it is situated within walking distance to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile and Greyfriars Graveyard etc. There are several pubs and restaurants within the Grassmarket area, which is great as you don't have to travel too far for evening entertainment. 

We would definitely recommend this Apartment.

“A servicable apartment very handily placed with a magnificent view of the castle.”


Edinburgh self Catering  Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013 NEW

We have stayed twice at this apartment during the Edinburgh Festival and have booked again for next. It is on Grassmarket and couldn't be better placed for the festival locations - both Fringe and the main festival. But it is equally central for other Edinburgh sights. The apartment is small but clean with an attractive living room overlooking the castle. It is on the third floor with no lift but this does mean it is quiet.apart from the Tattoo fireworks!

Luke, Mandurah, Australia Wonderful accommodation in the heart of Grassmarket, Malcolm was a great help especially when I couldn't figure out the outside lockbox. Even though it was late he still came down and helped us out.

Jamie, Burnley, England Superb location - very close to the castle (located on GrassMarket St). Malcolm was great and carried our suitcase up the stairs. Nice and clean apartment. Recommended - would stay there again.
Yuki, Amsterdam, Holland Great appartment and Malcolm is a very friendly host!
