After a fantastic but tiring trip around the highlands my three friends and I were eager to have a little more time to relax and leisurely explore Edinburgh and Eric & Marion's apartment gave us exactly what we were looking for! The building was located in a quieter area of the city, though still within a few minutes walking distance of the Royal Mile and right within the Grassmarket making it easy to find unique shops, fantastic restaurants, and fun pubs without wandering aimlessly to discover them. We were even able to visit the Edinburgh Hidden Door Festival on our last night because it was literally right around the corner! I think it's safe to say that we really fell in love with Edinburgh in the short time that we were there and being able to stay in this lovely apartment made a big difference.
Eric met us at the flat and we really enjoyed our stay there. The flat is incredibly well-situated for a stay in Edinburgh and is fully equipped with everything you need. Being next to Grassmarket you can walk to most of the Edinburgh sights.
My partner and I had a great experience at the West Port apartment. Marion met us at the door and showed us around, which was very appreciated. The apartment itself is amazing, cozy and comfortable. Eric and Marion have supplied everything you need to have an enjoyable stay, including some great coffee and tea. Its location is superb, near a grocery store, shops and tons of restaurants in the Grassmarket and Old Town of Edinburgh. It's very convenient for all the sights the city has to offer. We would highly recommend this apartment, and would love to stay here our next time in Edinburgh.
Eric and Marion are the most capable hosts. The flat was immaculate and nicely appointed. They provided a number of extras and basics, plus a wonderful collection of maps and guide books to the area. It was absolutely ideal.
Eric and marion welcomed us into their beautiful apartment with a bowel of fruit and all the essentials. Marion was there to greet us, show us around the apartment and give us our keys. There was plenty of information in the apartment about where to go in the city and what to see. The apartment was as described and exactly what we needed. Right in the heart of old town, we didn't use public transport once- everything was in waking distance! Can't wait to come back to Edinburgh, this apartment will be where we stay next time too! Thanks Eric and Marion :)
