Stylish West Newington Place Apartment, Southside, Edinburgh

Description

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.

Service

The booking process, payment arrangements, communication prior to arrival, and the greeting/check-in process were all well handled. The location was good although the unit requires some maintenance ( e.g. poorly draining shower stall and cracking grout in the floor tiles as a result of not having a proper substrate base beneath the tiled areas) and the unit should have been outfitted with more towels (both bath and kitchen) considering there were four persons for five nights and would have benefitted from a bit more dishes. The size of the rooms and comfort of the beds was good.

Product

Likely would rate this a 3 1/2. Please note comments in the section above. The location was good and reasonably walkable to most attractions. The accommodation was quiet. There are good amenities in the nearby area for grocery shopping etc. The unit was comfortable, the rooms were a good size for four people and the beds comfortable. There is a need for some maintenance as the shower stall does not drain properly, and the grout in the floor tiles is cracking. It is clear that the subfloor was not properly prepared before the tiles were installed as there is flex in the floor when you stand in certain areas. This problem will only worsen over time. The unit should have been equipped with more towels for bath and kitchen (considering it was a five night stay) and there could have been more dishes available. There was no instruction guide for the clothes washer/dryer however we were able to find them on the internet so this was not a problem. The unit was not as well equipped as a townhouse we had rented in Inverness a few days before, however, all things considered it was quite satisfactory.

'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

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

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.

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.

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.
