Bedrooms 2 Sleeps 4 (+2)
This stylish 2-bedroom holiday flat in Edinburgh is the perfect choice for groups and families of up to four people. An open plan design allows for lots of space and natural light. And the bright apartment is in beautiful condition. It makes a wonderful central base for a visit to Edinburgh.
Located on the Southside of the city, close to the beautiful Holyrood Park. There are lots of bars and restaurants close by. And it’s only a 10-minute walk to the Royal Mile and city centre shops and attractions.
Interior layout The entrance hall is open and spacious. You’ll need to climb several steep steps to to reach the top floor of this typical Edinburgh tenement building. But it's worth it to reach this bright and spacious apartment. You’ll find a wonderful open plan space, which provides the general living and dining area, with views across to the distant Pentland hills. There’s a cosy corner for dining, and seating areas with a stylish fireplace and flat screen TV with Freeview. The kitchen area is very smart, with dark wood worktops, slate walls and is fully fitted for all your needs.
Both double bedrooms are large and decorated to the highest standard. They come furnished with wardrobes, sets of drawers, bedside tables and lamps. The larger of the two also has a sound system and some DVDs to watch in the lounge.
The luxurious shower room has a rainfall shower, and there is a separate WC for additional comfort.
Exterior A lovely top floor apartment on West Newington Place in Edinburgh’s Southside.
You can easily reach the Newington area by rail from other parts of the UK. Take a train to Edinburgh Waverley Station and it’s just a short taxi or bus ride from there. There is a very good local bus service in Edinburgh, with regular buses to the area.
As this is a city centre property, roadside car parking is restricted. There is meter parking available, for a maximum stay of 4 hours, between 8.30 am and 6.30 pm from Monday to Saturday.
'Beautiful apartment - like a home away from home. Great location with easy access to the university and old town. There were many cafes and restaurants near the apartment which made it an excellent base for our four day stay. As others have mentioned the apartment is up a few flights of stairs which may not be suitable for all guests.' Siobhan

'The check-in went very smooth and we have been instructed to all necessary things of the apartment. The apartment had everything you are looking for: kitchen, fridge, tv, internet, separate toilet, shower and two sleeping rooms, which easily fit two persons each. I would definitely consider this place again, if I came back to Edinburgh.' Severiano

'The property was very clean. The location was perfect, I did not need to use taxis at all, you can reach all the places by walking. Just one advice, if you are planning to visit the property with kids, you need to be careful as the stairs are not safe for the kids to use alone.' Ibrahim

'This is a great flat for exploring Edinburgh and also very close to the main university campus. Great, lively neighbourhood with many good restaurants and you can walk into the city centre or take a bus. We enjoyed the layout of the flat and the size of the bedrooms. The beds are comfy and it worked well for a family of four without feeling cooped up. It gives you a great sense of what living in Edinburgh might be like. We also liked the decor and calm feel of the flat as well as its brightness. Yes, it is a few stairs, but that wasn’t a problem for us. Totally recommend!' Irene

'My daughter and I shared this property while she studied for her first set of university exams. The location was perfect for the university and buses. There was a grocery store and coffee shop close by. The property was bright, clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs.' Cairine

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement propre et bien chauffé. Sa situation dans la ville est très bien. Beaucoup de lignes de bus permettent de circuler dans la ville et aussi de se rendre à l aéroport pour pas trop cher.Magda nous a accueillis chaleureusement à une heure assez tardive. Merci

This flat is close to the main Newington Rd which is a straight shot up to the city center. For me it was a great location also to Pollock Halls, as I was getting my student settled at uni. It is close to bus stops and there is a small grocery nearby. The flat was quiet, with beautiful views. Fourth floor may be difficult for some but if can handle that it's worth it. Check-in was easy, and both Magda and Lorna were very helpful

Excellent location. Well appointed flat with two sizeable bedrooms and good kitchen/living space. Great welcome and good support if needed. We stayed five nights and would recommend

Awesome flat to stay in when visiting Edinburgh. It's far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile but close enough to walk to.

Warm and cosy. Large rooms. Clean. Thanks for a nice stay!

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights in April. We loved it. It's clean and cozy and a great location, only a 15 min. walk through the Meadows to the university and sights of the Old Town. But just out the door there's everything you need - restaurants, stores, pubs, etc. We liked the neighbourhood (Newington). Bustling but not noisy. The stairs weren't a problem for us but yes it is the top floor. No complaints, I'd definitely stay here again!

This place is super for both short and long trips. I was there for 10 days. The flat is/was very clean and comfortable. The heating works perfectly and is easy to control centrally such that hot water is readily available. The kitchenette has everything you would need, should you decide to cook for yourself. WiFi is excellent Location is really excellent with public transport readily available. Located a stones throw from both Arthurs seat and the Meadows. A 20-25 min walk should get you to the city centre, the castle and the royal mile. Plenty of local pubs & restaurants in the vicinty make this flat an ideal choice for anyone wishing to visit Edinburgh and I would have no hesitation in recommending the flat for your visit. Lorna runs a very professional operation with easy & uncomplicated communication. Check-in was as smooth as can be.

Fabulous flat in a quiet street but so close to the shops & restaurants around Newington. We couldn't have asked for more from Lorna pre-arrival and Magda was there as arranged to show us round on arrival. Being top floor the flat is very quiet ( and sunny!) with great views and sunsets. The beds and linen are superb so you're guaranteed a great night's sleep, after exploring this wonderful city. We'd love to return and stay in this very special flat again.
The wonderfully comfortable beds and attention to detail throughout meant we felt thoroughly relaxed and 'at home'. For us, visiting our daughter at Uni, this was in the ideal location and being so quiet meant we could relax and sleep well, increasing our enjoyment enormously!

Pro: The location! The apartment is just a few minutes walk to the restaurants and supermarkets. It's clean and well-appointed. Contra: The stairway to the flat is something you have to get used to. There are no free parking spaces in front of the house. You better leave your car at home or you will spent lots of money on long-term parking areas.

The apartment includes everything you need for the everyday living. Supermarkets and restaurants are just a few minutes walk from the flat. The stairway is something you have to get used to, but the apartment is nice and clean. There are no parking spaces you can use and it's really expensive to park your car in a long term parking area, so you better leave your car at home. The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat is near by and it's worth while! The apartment is recommendable.

We stayed in the well appointed apartment beautiful days. On foot everything is to the town center within easy reach, or take the bus. Communication with Lorna was exemplary, as is the timely receipt of the apartment and the pleasant on-site training. When arrived with heavy luggage you have to know that the apartment is on the 3rd floor.

Lovely room - as beautiful as the pictures make it look. We have a great weekend, and the whole process was very easy. Thanks!

We stayed one week with Lorna and everything was very nice and we had great time. The flat was very clean and there's everything you might need. There are lot of restaurants and cafes around. If you travel with big or heavy bags, you should know that this is 3rd floor flat and there is no lift in the building.
