The Sicilian Pastry Shop

14 Albert Street

Having just got back from Italy I'm obsessed by all things Italian and was delighted to find this wonderful bakery on Albert street.

Worth hunting out, either on the way to explore Leith and the shore or even just for a visit in itself! How about a walk on Carlton Hill and then down to this shop to reward yourself.

We had a delicious strawberry and cream cake - was divine!

Did you know that there are 16 Michelin-starred restaurants in Scotland, 5 of which are in Edinburgh!

I had the pleasure of experiencing the tasting menu at Restaurant Martin Wishart recently and what a wonderful experience that was.  

Fantastic service, attentive yet not intrusive, lovely surroundings and superb wine picked to go with each course.  Bliss!

Our owners work hard to keep their apartments up to date. We listen to guest feedback and discuss it regularly with owners. Between us we implement the recommendations by our guests or other changes we feel will enhance the accommodation. Recent enhancements ...


The Manorhouse Apartment@Ravelston Dykes has got a new Ipod docking station, a new tv in the master bedroom and another tv and dvd player in the double bedroom.

A lovely new blind has also been installed in the kitchen.


The Causewayside Apartment has got some lush new wallpaper in the king bedroom and as we speak the owner is choosing paper for the superking room!  Photos to come soon.

We took advantage of the "extras" provided by the company and hired a chef and a waitress for dinner on Saturday night. This really enhanced our stay and both Steven and June made us feel totally at ease and completely spoiled. Steven cooked one of the best dinners I have had in Edinburgh and June never let the glasses get empty. Everything was left immaculately clean and tidy at the end of the night and the whole experience was worth every penny! Everyone I have had contact with to book this weekend break has been courteous and helpful and I would definitely recommend this apartment and The Edinburgh Address Company to friends.


You too can hire Steven

A recent review ...

Fab apartment, has everything you need and more! Plenty of space for 6 people and everything is finished to a very high standard. 
Beds are really comfy and the little extras like the radios in the bathrooms make your stay that little bit more enjoyable.
Only took 5-10 minutes on the bus into the City Centre and the bus stop is right at the end of the street with buses every 10 minutes. Would definitely stay here again!

We are delighted that we have been able to engage the services of professional chef Steven Harvey to offer a fine dining experience to our guests in their Edinburgh Address apartment.
