"Lovely apartment, fantastic location"

06 May 2011
We came to Edinburgh to celebrate a 30th birthday. There were eight of us so we used the aero divan beds in the living room as well as all the bedrooms. The apartment itself was immaculately clean and nicely decorated in a very modern style. The eight of us fit in very comfortably - even with the beds in the living room. The location of the room is absolutely fantastic. It is right on the royal mile with a balcony in the living room looking up the road onto the mile. It meant everything we wanted to see was within close walking distance. The only downside was the noise from the street at night but with a location as ideal as this it was a small price to pay. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh.

"Great week in Eidnburgh"

21 June 2011
We rented the Cranston Street apartment. Very nice apartment - perfect for our family... location is ideal for spending a week in Edinburgh. The apartment itself was Clean, tidy and Jon was a real help when we arrived. Recommended to friends.

"Just what we needed"

Great apartment located in the heart of all the action!! We will be back.. already recommended to our friends.

We stayed here in July 2011.. just what we needed perfect size, clean and the staff were great.

"Fantastic location, lovely flat"

17 September 2011
We stayed here for a long weekend at the start of September. The flat is in a fabulous location in the old town, really close to the station. We were a party of 7 and were all pleasantly surprised by the amount of space the flat provided, and although I didn't sleep on the aerobed, my friend that did for 4 nights said it was really comfortable. I would certainly recommend this flat to friends and family, and hope to visit again myself some time soon.

"Fantastic location"

13 November 2011
Our group of 5 adults stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in Sept 2011 and found it to be just perfect. Location along the Royal Mile was so handy for everything you would want to do in Edinburgh. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms made life very comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean with all conveniences. We would definately stay there again and we recommend it to everyone. Thank you Jon for your recommendations about places to visit and local eateries and carparking - it was all invaluable information.

"Sich zu Hause fühlen in einer fremden Stadt, die es zu erobern gilt"

03 April 2012
Geschmackvoll und modern eingereichtetes Apparment. Alles hat funktioniert. Die großen Kinder waren happy, weil es ein offenes W-LAN-Netz gibt. Wir haben uns gefühlt, als würden wir mitten in der City wohnen, obwohl nur Gäste waren. Für unseren 5jährigen Sohn war es toll, dass wir so zentral gewohnt haben und mitten am Tag einfach mal "Nach Hause" gehen konnten. Wir konnten eigentlich alles zu Fuß erreichen. Ein kleiner Lebensmitteshop ist im selben Haus im Erdgeschoss. Cafés und Restaurants gibt es ohnehin überall. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter hat großartig funktioniert. Wir hatten seine Handynummer und hätten ihn jederzeit anrufen können. Danke für die schönen Tage im schönen Edinburgh! Jederzeit wieder!

"strongly recommend this apartment"

26 April 2012
This was a well appointed appartment, on the second floor, with views up and down the Royal Mile. It looks a little bit austere when you first enter the building, like the servants stairs, which on reflection may well be what it is. The rooms are all a good size so even with four of us and the little one there was loads of space and everything you need is supplied. Jon the owner was really friendly and accommodating, he met us personally and showed us around, I'm sure nothing would have be to much trouble had we needed anything. I would strongly recommend this apartment; my partner and I took her brother, his wife and their two year old daughter to stay there on their trip to the UK from Spain. They loved it as did we.

"Location, Location, Location!"

14 July 2012
Can not say enough about our wonderful vacation. The Rental people were very helpful in our search for a perfect location. When we arrived at the Condo, we were very pleased with our "home" for the next few days. It was very clean, well furnished and the kitchen was very well equipped with all we needed to cook when we weren't going out to eat at the many wonderful restaurants steps from the unit. Convenient to everything Edinbrough has to offer, we loved the Unit so much and can't wait to go back!!! There are about 3 floors of stairs to climb to get to this unit, but if you are up for it; the location is well worth the climb!

"excellent service"

24 July 2012
Hi Jon, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Cranston apartment in Edinburgh. Plenty of room for all of us to spread out and everything we needed was at our finger tips. We felt quite at home and comfortable--we certainly hated to leave!! Thanks so much for the excellent service, you made everything easy from start to finish. We will definitely be looking to use your services again next time we visit Scotland--hopefully in the near future!!! Thanks again,
Lynn Barber

"Comfy & Convenient"

11 October 2012
We were late to book as we wanted to time it right to match with daughters birthday (she wanted to see the pandas at the City Zoo), train connections, school time, etc. Emailed various establishments across Edinburgh to see if they could accommodate us (family of 6) for the weekend. Jon was quick to reply and suggest suitable plans for us. Very helpful. Answered our queries very quickly too. Was there to meet us at the apartment and show us were everything was. Nice touch that ! The accommodation itself was clean, user friendly and comfy. Nice layout, kids loved it. Location wise, it was perfect. Short walk up the hill from the station. On the Royal Mile and short walk to many attractions. Good restaurants and bars near by too. Would definitely recommend and we hope to come back. Only suggestion - maybe have some complimentary toiletries available. Apart from that - excellent.

"location was excellent"

27 March 2013
Jon was very accommodating as we arrived with a heavy load. Unfortunately we hadn't realised that we would have to climb a spiral staircase to our accommodation with little children in tow and pushchairs!! The location was excellent and likewise the views.

"Great Location!"

02 April 2013
We visited Cranston Street on our golf trip as a group of 8! We had 8 sets of golf clubs and still felt there was plenty of room even though we were at maximum capacity. Jon who meets you at arrival was very helpful and ensured we had a pleasant stay. The most appealing feature for our group was the location, all of the courses we played within half hour drive and you are smack bang in the middle of Edinburgh which makes heading out for food and drink a lot easier as it is literally on your doorstep! Would definately go back and very reasonably priced for such a central location!!!

"Lovely apartment, excellent location"

11 December 2013
First time trip to Edinburgh for a short break and could not have chosen a better apartment. It is in a fantastic location on the Royal Mile close to the castle, Princes St, and the train station with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment was clean, spacious with all the facilities you need and right above a corner shop. The owner, Jon, was very helpful and friendly. The stairs to the apartment were a bit of a hike so not suitable for those with mobility issues. Otherwise highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a city break in Edinburgh. Would definitely book again.

"Weekend apartment"

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cranston Street apartment. we had a group of 7 and the extra bed in the lounge was perfect. We will be back!

"Superb Apartment in a Central Location"

24 September 2015
The owner of the apartment was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking phase and during our stay. The central location on the Royal Mile was ideal for our group of friends as there were plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. It was also only a 5 minute walk from Waverly Station. The apartment was on the top floor which had good views back up the Royal Mile. All the rooms were of a decent size and even all seven of us in the front room did not feel cramped Free Wi-Fi was also included which was good Would highly recommend for a group of 6-8 friends and will defiantly use again on our next trip to Edinburgh

"clean & lovely"

05 May 2016
We took 2 apartments on the Royal Mile as there were 14 of us staying for the May bank holiday weekend. Apartments were near each other. So we were able to keep the group together. Both apartments were clean & lovely and matched the pictures on the website. We couldn't have gotten a better location to stay, we were very close to pub/ clubs. Walking distance to Princes Street and Queens street. Everyone in the group were delighted with the accommodation and would highly recommend any family/group to stay there. Jon was very helpful and informed us of nearby pubs, clubs and local attractions.
