Brilliant location - a mere Georgian stone's throw from Broughton Street cafes, bars and restaurants, tram stop, Waverley station, Princes Street, George Street and the Botanics, yet on a very quiet cycle route. The flat is on the second floor, so enjoy the journey up, treading on history on the well-walked stone steps. Enjoy the sunny double guest room and your own private bath, shower and loo in this gorgeous large flat with loads of character, built just after the War - the Napoleonic War!

The room was beautiful. She does an amazing job setting up for her guests and I loved the welcome book she had prepared. There's a bakery down the street that she recommended and their cardamom rolls were delicious! I would definitely recommend staying with Nell!

A great place to base your trip to Edinburgh! Easy access to the city center as well as the airport tram. The building and room are both beautiful, and Nell is a great host. Definitely make sure you take note of the combination to the lockbox beforehand—Nell gave me the informati…

I stayed at this location for few nights and Nell is a great host. I got early check in, she had left a welcome note outside the flat with my name on it which was very nice. She gave good recommendations and it was helpful. The flat itself is in a really quaint, nice neighborho…

Response from Nell:
The guest bathroom and bedroom are thoroughly hoovered, washed and dusted every visit - the bed linen and towels are also washed and dried for every guest. This is a 200 year old property - with only single glazing, so I am on top of dust but it will sneak in, so am pretty vigilant with the dustbuster! This is a popular air bnb so very pleased to say I have bought some new fluffy towels - so thanks for towel feedback.
