The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile

Description

We proudly introduce you to the Penthouse @ The Royal Mile; a chic bolt hole on the Royal Mile. A sense of calm envelopes you as you enter this fabulous property. The sense of space and light greets you at the top and the journey to explore the property has just begun - every room is a delight, with design attention to detail second to none.

Benefitting from a full refurbishment, the property features a spacious open plan living/dining area, with comfortable chairs and sofas you can relax into after a days sightseeing. There are 3 bedrooms - bedroom one has a double, bedroom 2 a zip and link which can be singles or a king and the Master a King bed. The master bedroom also has an en-suite.

There is a delightful balcony area with a table to seat 2 where you can breakfast or enjoy an evening drink admiring the fabulous Edinburgh views. The kitchen features all mod cons and if you fancy a night in, it is perfect for cooking so you can settle down for the evening and take advantage of the superb accommodations on offer (or use our chef service so you don't have to lift a finger!).

There is a lift to the property within the building.

Interior layout The communal building has a lift up to the fourth floor. There are some stairs from the front door up to the apartment. This spacious apartment has a hallway from which most rooms lead off. The living/dining area is open plan. There is a separate kitchen and doors next to the kitchen lead to the balcony.

Service

Booking was straight forward. The service from Calum was prompt and helpful without being intrusive.

Product

The property is in a fab, central location. As it's at the top of the building it has views to die for and we loved sitting out on the little terrace. The master bedroom is beautiful but the other bedrooms were a little on the small side and the whole property was a little tired and worn. There's a lift (which is needed!) but there's a surprise set of steep stairs right at the end, so be warned! Other reviewers complained about the noise but we actually found it peaceful and quiet.

Our response

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a 4 star review and your constructive feedback. We will make sure to pass on the information to the owner to make sure our services are improved in the future.

Kind regards

Service

Very responsive.

Product

The common areas really need some attention, but the unit itself was clean, comfortable & attractively furnished. Some hooks for hanging towels and robes would be nice. Availed ourselves if the services of chef Steven offered through Edinburgh address. He was terrific. Food fresh & delicious. A nice change of pace from eating out. Lots of street noise in the wee smalls on the weekend and the elevator was heard through the walls of the master bedroom as revellers returned home.

Our response

Thank you for leaving such a positive review for your stay at The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile. Chef Steven is great and always a hit with guests who book his services. 
We will speak to the owner about some robes and towel hooks for the property. 
So glad you enjoyed your time in Edinurgh and we hope to see you again.

Seamless, reliable and trustworthy. Polilte, friendly and professional.

Product

The apartment is in a great location and was everything we wanted for our stay. We stayed with three small children and only brought one rucksack with us from 'down south' for a three night stay as everything we needed was provided or available nearby. The only improvement for safety would perhaps be a removable stairgate at the top of the entrance hall to prevent any little ones falling down.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this 5 Star review for your stay at The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and found every you needed either in the property or were able to get it close by.

A lovely, well-equipped apartment. A spacious apartment with modern decoration in the heart of the city. The location is great being right on the royal mile. I'm not a light sleeper but for people who are it is sometimes a little noisy at night. This doesn't spoil it though. We had a great time.

Location great.
Beds comfortable.
Clean bathrooms and kitchen.

Lift extremely annoying- used every night between midnight and 6am, no way you can sleep through the noise it creates.
Water pressure low.
Drying clothes- a clothes rack would be useful as the washing machine is an old model and uses long washing and drying programs.
The twin bed room was more suited for children not adults because of the low sloped ceiling.

The location is brilliant and the street noise is expected in this central location but the apartment does not live up to the luxury title advertised.

Product

The price reflects the location of the apartment but not the interior or facilities. I would chose a house next time that is not near clubs and pubs.
it would be interesting to know what the 'team' think of the lift being used between 12-6am if they slept there for a few nights.

Our response

Thank you for leaving us this constructive feed back on your recent stay at this property. We are sorry that you feel that property did not live up your expectations for it. As the property in the centre of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile, an amount of noise from the street is to be expected. The property is located on the top floor of the building which does help to minimize any noise from the street. The lift is for the use of all the residences in the building there is unfortunately no ability for any of the owners to curtail its use by others. 

We shall raise the provision of clothes drying rack for the property and up dating the washing machine with the property owner. 

We hope to see you back in Edinburgh soon. 

Kindest regards

Amazing Penthouse, loved how close it was to so many attractions. Just a few things missing, only 1 hairdryer between 5 people. No dishwasher tablets, for such a lovely apartment we thought there could have been more bathroom toiletries, one of the coasters in the box was cracked and placed at the bottom, worrying as we did OMG have any breakages!

Amazing apartment! Needs more hairdryers and toiletries

Very easy and efficient booking service, but most importantly to us it was their prompt replies to all our questions. They were so helpful and very friendly.

Product

The Penthouse at the Royal Miles was in a perfect location, lots to do right outside our door! We were a party of six and the space was perfect for us, three bedrooms and two baths plus lots of room to just hang out. The kitchen was well equipped and the dinning table was large enough for all of us. The living room also had space for everyone with a great view of the Royal Mile. It was a lovely apartment and I would highly recommend it. Hatty at The Edinburgh Address was so helpful and easy to deal with, will absolutely use their service again, thanks for a great experience!!

Our response

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your lovely positive feedback.

Service

Everyone that I had corospondence with in booking this accommodation was pleasant and professional.

Product

The penthouse itself was lovely. There was plenty of space for the six of us. The beds were comfortable and the space was clean and tidy. And the views out of the windows were quite nice.
The location had its pros and cons.
Pros - It was great to be able to walk right out of the building and be within walking distance to points of interest like the castle, restaurants, and shops. (Really nice to have Starbucks right next door) Getting a taxi was easy and everyone was more than kind and helpful.
Cons- A few of the evenings, or should I say early mornings, the street noise was loud with people closing the bars and continuing their party out on the street. We also had encounters with those less fortunate than us sleeping right outside of the entrance to the building. Always polite, but a sad situation. A sad part of city life everywhere.

Our response

Thank you so much for leaving your feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Sorry the noise was a disruption for you - The Royal Mile can get very busy! Hopefully you'll book through The Edinburgh Address again and we will use our expertise to advise you on the most suitable property for your stay.
All the best -

Easy to organise and book. Would use them again and recommend to our friends.

The accommodation was in an excellent position for the Edinburgh Fringe. The Penthouse was a very pleasant place to stay and enjoy with our friends. The entrance area could do with a bit of a refurb though but all in all we were very happy.

Guestbook reviews

Excellent communication throughout - fantastic penthouse apartment right on the Royal Mile. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos, very clean and definitely worth the splurge. Only a little noisy at night but this didn't worry us one bit - you're lucky to be staying on the Mile! There is room to bring your car up to quickly unload your luggage with parking only two blocks away. Grocery store is a short walk and restaurants and pubs are on your doorstep. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends and will hopefully return next time we're in Edinburgh.

"We would rate ten star!
It was a lovely family reunion. The comfort and spaciousness allowed my sisters and brother and I to catchup with each other. We did less exploring of Edinburgh than I had planned, we felt very relaxed. "

The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile

Great location. Excellent customer service by both Hatty and Calum. We had an electrical problem in the flat causing frequent power outages but Calum was very responsive once we notified him. Internet was terrible. VERY slow which made it difficult to download anything. Mattress in middle bedroom was lumpy and uncomfortable, needs to be replaced. Coffee pot found broken, we bought one and left it in flat. Despite the negatives listed above, we enjoyed our stay and would use The Edinburg Address again. The most frustrating issue was extremely slow internet.

"I can not thank Callum from the concierge team enough! Despite our train being delayed by 8 hours and therefore arriving in the very early hours of the morning, Callum ensured that we were able to get in to the apartment.
We would have been really stuck without him! The whole process has been great and Hatty and Callum are a credit to your company. Thank you!"

We stayed at The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile and thought it was very good value for money. There wasn't anything we would change about the property. The accommodation is in an excellent location at a very high standard and is well equipped. We arranged for Stephen the private chef on the saturday night and he was fantastic! Amazing meal!
