    This was our second stay - that probably says it all! A lovely cottage - perfect for two. Excellent location close to all of Edinburgh. We walked miles. The santa run was well worth seeing and made us feel very festive. Usquabae bar on hope street (downstairs) has a great selection of whisky and made a great gin. We didn't eat but the food looked very good. Another great weekend which will be repeated - already recommended to others.

    This unique property is situated in a brilliant location close to Princes St. but still enjoys relative peace and quiet. The bedroom is on the ground floor and the entrance is off this room so a tendency to bring leaves etc in when coming and going. The property is well equipped with everything you need for the stay. I only have a couple of thoughts that would have made the stay more enjoyable :- The bed is low and mattress very firm and the pillows were not the most comfortable as they were foam. A deeper mattress or a topper and feather pillows would have improved the comfort but this is personal choice. The towels in the bathroom were ok but a larger bath towel would have added a bit more luxury. The wi fi works brilliantly and being able to park the car was a welcome bonus. The pictures don't do the property justice and it really is right beneath the castle walls. The owners have provided a really good information pack. Definitely a memorable experience and one which you will not find anywhere else
