The Space

Converted from a stable/garage property in February 2012 this property couldn't be more central allowing guests to get here by train, plane or bus and easily explore the city on foot.

The accommodation offers spacious loft living/dining/kitchen accommodation on the upper floor which is accessed by a short flight of stairs.
LIVING AREA: Relax on the comfortable sofa as you watch the wall hung Smart TV or chill out in the deep armchair in front of the French window while reading. Wireless internet provided free of charge.
DINING: A small table located beside the kitchen area window offers the opportunity to sit and re-fuel.
KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated fridge (with freezer compartment), integrated dishwasher, hob and oven.

A generous double bedroom, ensuite shower room and seperate cloakroom are situated beneath, on the ground level.

BEDROOM: The sumptous double bedroom is located on the ground floor. The large kingsize bed was chosen with your comfort in mind and the built in wardrobes offer substantial storage for your holiday outfits. An ensuite shower room is located off the bedroom. Towels provided.

Guests are welcomed by host and a supply of Finn flapjack, fresh milk and fresh orange juice, complement the stock supply of tea and coffee.

*Please note that there is a strict NO SMOKING policy within the mews*

Your mews holiday accommodation is located in the heart of Edinburgh's West End village, just around the corner from Princes Street. Haymarket rail station is a short walk away and the new tramway will speed passengers from the airport to a location just minutes from the mews accommodation.

William Street enjoys a a variety of shops, bars and cafes that will suit all holiday budgets. Further high street shops are a short walk away in Princes Street and George Street offers shops such as Anthropologie and Hollister ending with Harvey Nichols on St Andrews Square. Yet your holiday accommodation is surprisingly peaceful, allowing you to enjoy the sound of the bells of the nearby awe-inspiring St Mary's Cathedral.

We suggest.... you wander round to the iconic Brass & Copper coffee haunt where you will enjoy THE best coffee, a fantastic way to start your day from Monday to Friday. Or enjoy a wonderful weekend brunch along at Indigo Yard. Within minutes you will be standing in the shadow of the magnificent Edinburgh castle. You can choose to walk past it towards the historic Grassmarket or climb up the Mound to the Royal Mile where the castle proudly stands at one end with an easy walk down towards Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. Once you've got there you might choose to climb the iconic Arthur's Seat, a hill with an umissable view of the city. (Did you notice that there's been no talk of transport yet? Your accommodation is so central that public transport is rarely required!)

Or if you prefer to get off the beaten track turn left instead of right and wander around the New Town where you can admire the fine architecture on your way to the Modern Art Gallery. After inspiring your creativity wander along the Water of Leith towards Stockbridge - a mellow and dreamy walk that takes you to this small community buzzing with cafes, vintage clothing and artisan shops.

And if this all sounds a bit too laid back then head to George Street for an evening of high class eating and clubbing - hey if the Opal Lounge was good enough for Prince William we're thinking we might give it a visit....

  • What a fab place! Perfect for two weary travellers, contains everything you need, very close walk to all the sights in town. Colin is a very friendly host. Cannot recommend this apartment enough.

  • Fantastic!!! Couldn't have asked for any more! Colin was so lovely and helped us out when we stupidly left some of our bits at the mews. The mews itself is so comfortable and the host has used the highest end furnishings! The bed was so comfortable it was as good as home! Can't fault it and can't wait to get back! Thanks so much Colin. Don't hesitate to book this place!

  • The mews house is in a perfect location, Edinburgh is stunning and the place was at the centre of everything but also tucked down a pretty lane which was away from any noise. The apartment was clean and very zen so perfect to relax in and also had all that you needed for a short stay. Colin's wife left the best flapjack I have ever had which was a sweet touch! Check in/ out was smooth and easy.
    Would stay again.

  • A great central location close to lovely pubs and restaurants

  • Colin is a great host. One of the best I've had. The apartment is beautiful, has every convenience, near to the center of town. Colin was very thorough, checking in ahead of time to confirm and meeting us on the day we arrived to show us the apartment. There was milk and juice and home made oat bars waiting for us. We liked it so much we came back for an additional night before we left. I would highly recommend Colin and the Mews and will definitely keep it in mind should I return to Edinburgh.

  • We were met by Colin's daughter Elis who explained how everything worked. It was a great shame that we were only able to stay for one night as this is a beautiful apartment, tastefully furnished with good quality furniture. It is light and airy with a calm feel. The area is quiet, but close to some lovely shops and the trams and buses. Next time will definitely stay for longer.

  • Great location, well renovated space. We loved the flap jacks in the morning. We felt very comfortable making the mew home for the night. Colin is very easy going and was flexible with our check out. Great cap to our holiday in Scotland.

  • Colin was a great host; he gave us good tips on the local cafes and pubs and is a really friendly, easy going guy. He gave us great tips on where to eat and drink locally and recommended a great cafe that does the best coffee we have tasted in a long time. The mews house is immaculate - a great place to stay Will definitely (website hidden) - he left some rather tasty flapjacks - yum!

  • My sister and I meet every year for a short few days together. We always try to make them as memorable as we can and Colin's Mews property certainly lived up to earlier reviews - and a little more. It was the perfect accommodation for spending quality time with a special person. Lovely atmosphere, beautifully decorated - it had everything we needed. Colin was so helpful too.
    When we return to Edinburgh, we will definitely return to this great place.

  • Outstanding location for Edinburgh. Near the tram, train station and prime location for visiting by foot. There are many great pubs and amenities just beside.

    The flat is lovely and very modern/clean. The check-in was flexible and very convenient.

About
I enjoy helping others and previously worked in healthcare before I moved into business. Most weekends are spent coaching rugby and watching my sons play sports. I enjoy running and cycling and would like to get back into classic car restoration - previous successful projects have included two Morris Minors, a Rover 2000 and an Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite. My perfect holiday involves a good balance of activity and relaxation and I aim to ensure that every guest at The Mews enjoys their perfect holiday in Edinburgh. I'm married with three teenage children.
