Built in 1760 by Archibald Chessel and now Grade A listed, this luxury self-catering Georgian flat has many fine period features including unique decorative plasterwork and cornicing.

    We loved the flat and the goodies that you left for us! The flat is in a great neighborhood close to everything. It was nice having a washer as we had been on the road for awhile. Loved the sites and restaurants. My adult kids loved Edinburgh and enjoyed the night life there. I defiantly would recommend the flat and would stay again given the opportunity.

  2. Lisa Benson says:

    The apartment was wonderful for a small family Christmas. My history-orientated and energtic sister and my folks who just wanted to relax, were all happy with the location of the apartment and the space. It was easy to get groceries, go to all the city sites, buses, and the pubs. Great location. Owners were very easy to work with, even when we were late (twice!!). And they gave helpful advice for groceries and tours (which we used!). A lovely stay- we would all come again!

    Fabulous apartment in an ideal location. Steps away from everything (pubs, restaurants, shopping, night life, historic sites, parks, transportation), but still very quiet. It was a family favorite. Katie and her team are first-rate and extremely accommodating. Would return in a heart-beat!

  4. Richard Beardshall says:

    The apartment is comfortable, warm and spacious as well as being well equipped and central. Katie was welcoming and kind enough to enable us to check in to the apartment when we arrived a little early.
    We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere and there’s always a nice pub or restaurant to pop into when the weather gets too bracing.

  5. Brenda Charters says:

    A wonderful apartment, beautifully furnished and equipped and so close to all amenities (bus stop, pubs, etc.) Thanks to Katie who was so helpful and welcoming. Will recommend to friends.

    Wonderful flat in the Old town, with a number of antique pieces and beautiful cornicing. Would recommend Monteith’s whisky cocktails on the High St. Thanks to the Greatbase team and loved my cup of tea when I arrived!!
