Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thank you Gabrielle for a lovely stay in your clean, comfortable and beautiful little flat, perfectly situated on the Royal Mile. We really appreciated the thought that went into making our stay so enjoyable and for your help and advice. We will be back.

  • Gabrielle was the perfect host. Her flat was incredibly clean and welcoming. I highly recommend!

    March 2014
  • A very comfortable stay with a considerate and thoughtful host

    March 2014
  • Great appartment ideally located in the old town. We were four friends, Gabrielle arranged one double bed, one single bed and a sofa-bed which was perfect. Flat is clean and bright, I strongly recommand tout état there.

    March 2014
  • Loved Gabrielle's flat which was the right size for the two of us, bright and clean, and most importantly in the perfect location in the heart of the Old Town. Checking in and checking out was a breeze and the flat came with all the essentials. Gabrielle was also really quick to respond whenever I left her a message. I would definitely recommend this place!

    March 2014
  • Gabrielle was a fantastic host, giving us lots of advice and directions. The flat couldn't be better placed in Edinburgh and was immaculate inside! Thanks so much for having us stay ! We will reccommend and return ! X

    February 2014
  • Gabrielle was a wonderful hostess before and during the stay. She responded by return to emails and booking was quick and easy. A great welcome with advice on places to go and a plate of homemade biscuits! A change of plan which meant that we were 4 instead of 2 was no problem at all. The location of the flat could not be better, front windows looking down on the Royal Mile, rear windows with a view over the Edinburgh rooftops. It was small but comfortable and cosy with everything you could need for a short stay. Home from home and it felt like we were living in Edinburgh not just visiting. A great base and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Gabrielle.

    February 2014
  • Bit of a hiccup with the apartment not being available due to an issue, but Gabrielle was very proactive in arranging for an alternative apartment to be made available in the Quarter Mile area of Edinburgh which turned out to be a very nice part of town and the apartment was perfect.

    January 2014
  • Gabrielle was a fantastic and friendly host. Everything was well organised and the place was very clean and cosy.

    The location was perfect for seeing the sights of Edinburgh. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return in future.

    January 2014
  • Gabrielle's place was gorgeous, just like the views from the apartment. Cannot stress the excellent location enough - 5 - 10 minutes away from practically everything. Great pubs nearby. VERY easy to find. There is no lift in the building, but we did not mind as it was only on the 2nd floor. Beds and everything were all very comfortable & decor was adorable, and Gabrielle was very understanding towards our late check out requirements, and was easily contactable. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone going to Edinburgh.
