. . . I am young at heart and looking for adventure! ! . . .
Ian's flat in Cockburn street comes highly recommended by both my husband and myself. It is well equipped and nicely decorated. Once the flat heated up it was warm throughout our stay. Cockburn street is right in the heart of the city and is full of quirky independent shops and places to eat. A five minute walk takes you onto Princes street and all the High street shops. Ian was there to greet us when we arrived and gave us all the information that we needed. I would definitely stay there again and look forward to doing so sometime in the future.
Ian and Shelly were fantastic hosts. The studio was perfect -- very clean, secluded, and well-appointed. I ended up taking a cab in to St. Andrews most days (this cost about 10 pounds). However, parking my rental car at the studio was no problem either.
Ian Gordon nous a très bien accueillis, payant même le parcmètre le temps de décharger nos bagages avant de rendre la voiture de location.
Son épouse est elle aussi charmante et parle un français parfait.
L'appartement est à deux pas du Royal Mile et permet la visite d'Edimbourg à pied de la ville.
La gare et les lignes de bus sont à proximité pour se rendre à Leith (Royal Yacht Britannia) ou à l'aéroport.
Les problèmes de chauffage et d'électricité sont minimes et nous avaient été signalés.
Having just returned from another exciting Edinburgh Fringe festival, we could not have asked for more in Ians apartment. So close to everything, Waverley station 3 minute walk, Royal Mile less than a minute, Princess Street about 8 minutes. The apartment was once again spotless when we arrived. There was no need to conact Ian throughout our stay, but he was always available if we needed him. Used this before and will be using again. Mick & Rosie
I have just returned from another great stay in Ian's apartment. The location is excellent and the apartment has everything you need for the week. I would recommend it to anyone and will be planning to stay there on my next trip to Edinburgh.
My girlfriend and I have been coming to Edinburgh for the Fringe every year for the last six years, and have stayed in a lot of different flats around the town. Ian's apartment - in terms of location, cleanliness and facilities - has been the best by a long, long way. We absolutely loved staying here. The location is about as good as it gets in Edinburgh - near most of the main Fringe venues, all the main sights, loads of shops/pubs/restaurants, and it's also close to the train station. Despite that, the flat is surprisingly quiet as it's located at the back of the building (which also means you get a nice view from the windows). There's a really nice Mexican restaurant just a few doors down, and we also love the pub/restaurant Albanach on the corner of the street for our obligatory annual helping of haggis! There are some great little independent souvenir shops on this street too.
Ian himself was friendly, accommodating and always quick to reply to any texts or emails. We would be delighted to stay in one of his properties again.
We had the most wonderful stay at Ian's fabulous apartment. Right in the city centre, and in the middle of the Fringe Festival, it was the perfect location for our stay. The apartment itself was clean and beautiful, with everything we needed and the most comfortable bed ever!! We requested to stay an extra night, and Ian was very accommodating, accepting our request and quickly making the necessary arrangements. We felt so lucky to have stayed here and look forward to coming back sometime in the future. Highly recommend!
We had a great stay at Rose garden.
beautiful garden and clean rooms.
But network is not good.
Other things was GOOD!
First time with airbnb... and fantastic flat!
Everything was perfect!
WYSIWYG, and even more... incredible view from the windows, wi-fi, close to everything, lovely athmosphere...! :-)
And thanks to Ian and Sandy!
The best place to stay in Edinburgh!
See you next time in town guys!
Ian's apartment was ideally located in Old Town. Being first timers in Edinburgh it was perfect! The view from the windows was very nice and you could figure out exactly where you were staying viewing from the Scott Memorial. All the necessary conveniences and privacy: comfortable bed, nice shower and well equipped kitchen. We would stay there again for sure!
It was a great pleasure to have Ian's daughter Jessie stay with us. She's very easy going, social, we had some nice conversations, she left the room in a perfect state and even left us a nice present. We highly recommend her as a guest and we're looking forward to keep in touch. See you in Edinburgh! :)
Even if I did not have the pleasure to meet Ian everything was absolutely perfect! excellent communication
I can thank Ian and Sandy for being such wonderful, warm-hearted and cheerful guests. It was really a pleasure to welcome them at the Chai Catalan and I am really happy that we contributed to making their stay in our region an enjoyable experience, they thoroughly deserved it! I have no doubt that their next holiday will also be happy and their next host too!
Ian and Sandy are very good guests, they are easy to comunicate with and relaxed, I felt very well with them. Sandy is very nice to talk with about many subjects. They left all in perfect order, even more they put all sheets and used towels in a pile. Thank you so much. They are very welcomed back.
Nice couple, everything was perfect. We really recommend them to every host and hope to see them again in Berlin.
Jessie was a lovely lady, she was clean, considerate and friendly. Would love to host for Jessie again.
Jessie stayed with us in London in May. She was very friendly, tidy and quiet - I would highly recommend her as a guest and welcome her back any time!
