Ideal Apartment in Ideal Location November 2019
It would be hard to say enough good things about this rental in the space provided so we'll state the highlights. This is an extremely comfortable flat within walking distance to numerous attractions, shops, museums, restaurants, grocery stores, and parks. It is also easy to access the University. The apartment's decor is tasteful and spot on for the art deco building in which it is located. Additionally, the comfort and layout of the flat makes it more like a home than a rental and the kitchen is a delight to use, keeping in mind that there are numerous restaurants and takeouts in the area when a long day makes cooking undesirable. We will definitely try to book here when we return to Edinburgh.

Joy V, Dublin CA, USA

Perfect! October 2019
This property was perfect! I loved the spacious living and kitchen area. It was perfect for days I didn’t go out much. Everything in the flat was in perfect running condition. The location was great as well, very close to just about anything I needed, including shops, groceries and restaurants. Thanks so much. I will definitely be back next time I’m there.

Michelle & Jessica Moore, Tucson, Arizona, USA

This is a great place to stay in Edinburgh. It' close to everything and has everything you need. These nice folks have thought of everything. When I come back, I will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you.

Randy Lenzen, Saint Louis, Missouri, USA

Lothian House was a clean, cozy apartment within walking distance of the castle and royal mile. September 2019
We really enjoyed our stay at Lothian House. The owners make every effort to insure all goes well. There are grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurants nearby. The apartment is clean, cozy and well equipped. The instruction book for appliances, internet, etc. is amazing. We also appreciated the yummy treats and coffee/milk. We took their advice for calling a cab, restaurant suggestions. Our only regret was that we didn�t have more time to just sit and relax. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend to others travelling to Edinburgh.

Joan Wallace, Ottawa, Canada

Great Edinburgh Suite! September 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our six night stay. The location is great and is in walking distance of a good variety of dining and all Edinburgh has to offer. Kirsty and Peter have thought of everything. We loved being able to come "home" after a long day of adventure. The apartment is superbly decorated and all your questions are answered in their welcome book and instruction manual. Even a nice welcome note and goodies upon our arrival.

Greg & Irene Nanton, Alberta, Canada

I stayed in Kirsty and Peters flat for an entire month and it exceeded my expectations in every way - it is a charming flat in a great location with every amenity you could want.

Val McGary, Florida, USA

Excellent Stay July 2019
Central apartment. Easy access to busline and everything Edinburgh has to offer. Would definitely book again. Kirsty and Peter were out on holiday but their management company took care of everything. Thanks for sharing your lovely place with us.

John Williams, Nevada, USA

Five Star All the Way June 2019
We absolutely loved our stay at this beautifully maintained property! The location was perfect, situated between the old and new parts of the city. Groceries, entertainment, restaurants and tourist attractions were all within walking distance or short bus rides. You can look out the window and see Edinburgh Castle - what more could you ask for? The property itself was very clean and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need for an evening at home. We were thrilled to find such a good selection of tourist brochures and books on site with suggestions of things to see and do while in Scotland. My husband was very impressed by the detailed manual provided by Peter and Kirsty for the operation of all the appliances in the property! Great attention to detail and very much appreciated. The one or two questions we had while staying there were promptly responded to by the owners. Thank you for a wonderful visit and for arranging the early check in for us. We highly recommend this property.

Lana and Bill Shymanski, Manitoba, Canada

  May 2019
This apartment is ideally placed for exploring the city on foot or by public transport, with plenty of choice for shops and restaurants nearby. It is comfortable and well-equipped and the hosts are extremely welcoming and thoughtful. They have clearly looked at things from a guest's point of view and made sure to provide home comforts and practical information about how things work and how to make the most of the local area. Highly recommended.

Steve and Jenny Peacock, Birmingham, UK

Wonderful Stay May 2019
Wonderful property in a great location. The flat has everything you could want with close attention to details. I unfortunately got sick during our stay, so I ended up spending a lot more time in the flat than expected. I was very comfortable and close to everything I needed.

Carrie Dillon, Austin, Texas

Beautiful apartment and perfect location May 2019
Perfectly located, walking distance to all Edinburgh has to offer. Beautifully decorated with the local history as a theme. Ideal cozy harbor between outings. Clean, well equipped, the cookies were a hit. Loved it! Highly recommend.

Immaculate apartment with ideal location for all parts. May 2019

Very nice flat April 2019
The flat is on a main street so it is easily accessible. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean. We never heard any noise from any neighbors. The kitchen was well stocked with nice dishes. The bed has quality linens. There is a small washing machine in the flat so one can pack lightly. We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Marilyn Leimbach, Maine, USA

We only have great things to say about this flat. Beautifully furnished and stylish, well equipped, descriptive instructions, fabulous location, very clean, nice touches, helpful hosts. Should we return to Edinburgh we hope to stay here again.

Very Nice Apartment in a great Location, location, location! November 2018
Kirsty and Peter's apartment was a great jumping off point for my visit to Edinburgh and day trips outside the city. I walked everywhere and felt very comfortable on my own. The apt is well and comfortably furnished and very clean. It is apparent the owners take pride in their property. There was so refurbishment work going on in the hallway ceiling - but once I closed the apt door, that didn't disturb me at all. Of note - you are in an apartment building and on a busy street, so there is street noise; because - you are on a busy street. You can hear some neighbor noise - because you are in an apt building. I didn't find either unbearable - there were lots of sirens/ambulances in the evening hours - not sure why - the double panes in the bedroom do make a difference for sleeping! The apartment is great. Everything is on your doorstep. Easy access to the city and jumping off points for day trips - I went to the Highlands and St Andrews. I definitely will put this on my return list. And thank you both for the early check-in on Thursday; it made a great difference!

Phyllis Mini, Franklin, Tennessee, USA

  November 2018
We stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time. The apartment is very well equipped, spotless clean and in a very good location, only a 5 minute walk to Princess Street. We would definitely recommend this apartment, with easy access and even a lift to get you to the third floor!

Colin and Sheena Graham, Maydown, Northern Ireland

Best VRBO We Have Experienced! October 2018
A very nice place, full of character, and with all of the amenities of home. We were very comfortable in the cozy decor. The pictures don't really do the place justice.

Some highlights:

- very detailed instruction manual for all of the appliances

- location was top notch - close to everything we wanted to see

It was clear that the owners took a great deal of effort in making our stay fantastic. It was so nice that if we could, we would have stayed longer. We'd definitely would stay here again if we return to Edinburgh! No hesitation in recommending this place.

Zeljko Pavic, Alberta, Canada

  October 2018
This apartment is fantastic. It is welcoming, warm and a great place to stay when you are in Edinburgh. The location is perfect for doing everything around the city. We had cold and wet weather while we were there and the apartment provided a cozy place to warm up between outings. We spent many nights ending our day with an adult beverage in the two chairs in front of the bay window. The owners have gone above and beyond to make it feel welcoming and to provide instructions on the amenities. You can

Thank you Kirsty & Peter for providing such a lovely apartment.

As others have said, the decor, the equipment, the proximity to everything have helped make our stay enjoyable.

The local information was great & meant we found & enjoyed the local canal.

Hope to be back.

Great place to stay in Edinburgh. September 2018

Side note: yes there is street noise, but we use a sound app to sleep and when awake we felt the activity below is just part of being in a city. It wasn't a problem at all.

Peg Griffith, Denver, Colorado, USA

Comfortable Apartment in a Great Location August 2018
The location was in the center of everything we was visiting Edinburgh for, and could not be more perfect. The actual building is being renovated at present, but still looks very nice; the apartment has the Art Deco look perfectly. It is clean, well presented, has everything you need for your stay; even extra touches of coffee, tea, cookies, milk etc... Lots of shops, restaurants and bars locally, that you don't have to go far for anything. I have to give a shout out to Topalabamba Tapas Restaurant across the road - excellent food and service! The only reason I did not give this apartment five stars is the noise level - I know it is in a busy street, but the windows are not double glazed and you hear everything! Plus the walls are thin, and we heard next doors TV through the wall into the early hours. It was really hard to sleep with all the noise and chaos - such a shame, as it is really nice, clean and well appointed. We loved it...

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate that Lothian Road is a busy and often noisy road but it is located right in the middle of the city making it very convenient for all that Edinburgh has to offer. The windows are double glazed. In addition, the bedroom window also has acoustic glass glazing to reduce the street noise further. The walls, far from being thin, are actually thick solid stone. We are sorry you were disturbed by the neighbours. In the time we have the apartment this is the first time there has been an issue. We are sorry if this spoilt your stay in any way.

Steven & Kate Warrick, Austin, Texas, USA

Excellent location, fantastic apartment August 2018
Brilliant location perfect for visiting the castle and other sights, all the amenities on your doorstep. Good kitchen facilities and the apartment is very clean and comfortable. Greeted by the owner Peter on arrival who was very informative of the local area and the facilities within the apartment.

Would definitely recommend to friends and would certainly stay again.

Mark Blake, Cheshire, England

Beautiful flat conveniently located August 2018
We spent a week attending the festival. The flat was walking distance to everything. Lovely decor and every convenience you could ask for.

Lesley Kalmin, Seattle, USA

Top Notch August 2018
The location was great. We walked to all the tourist attractions. If preferred, a bus stop is right on the corner. There were multiple good restaurants right in the neighborhood, in addition to stores for groceries and/or sundries. Peter and Kirsty have set up the place with quality furnishings, linens and kitchen equipment. The place was spotless! We enjoyed all the artwork related to the area and the book on the history of the neighborhood. Since we tend to do our touring during the day, we appreciated the movie options available for our quiet evenings at "home". Kirsty and Peter were responsive to communications we had prior to our arrival. Nothing came up that required contacting them during our stay.

Jyneal McCrea, Minnesota, USA

Wonderful apartment! August 2018
We were just thrilled with every last detail of this beautiful apartment. We were let in immediately, everything was immaculate, and it is convenient to everything.

Alice Thomas, Portsmouth, Virginia, USA

Lovely comfortable place in great location July 2018
Really nice well kept, appointed and supplied very clean apartment in fantastic location. Owners extremely responsive and thoughtful, provide precise and comprehensive instruction book for all appliances, tv, shower etc. Lovely kitchen. Great value and really glad we stayed there. Would highly recommend.

One caveat to beware: this place (like many in Edinburgh I'm sure, and even top restaurants as we experienced) has no air conditioning and it was hot in Edinburgh and so was this place. This necessitated leaving the windows open and Lothian Road is busy! Sounds of people leaving pubs and bus and vehicle traffic and emergency vehicle sirens throughout the night were right in your room. Also at this time of year sunrise is before 5:00 AM and sunset after 10:00 PM which means you also have to have the drapes closed which makes it even warmer inside. So keep in mind if you are going to visit in height of summer.

We're sorry the hot weather caused you problems - this is the hottest spell of weather in Edinburgh since 1976. It is more usual for us to be explaining how the heating works even in Summer! We have provided fans to help but really can't justify air conditioning for the few really hot days we get once in a blue moon.

All this said, we're glad you had an enjoyable time in our fantastic city.

Michael Schwartz, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA

  June 2018
Fantastic place, very convenient to everything Edinburgh. I've never seen a more thorough guide to the basics of how things work at the apartment (e.g. details on how to open the pullout couch). There is some renovation work being done on other parts of the building, but we never heard it unless we were in the exterior hallway. There is a bit of street noise, but that's to be expected with urban living and the bedroom had a second interior window that kept it quiet for sleeping. Well appointed to make our stay comfortable, would happily stay again.

Theresa Pitner, North Carolina, USA

Lovely apartment in great location June 2018
Very clean. Everything you need is provided. Full of character. central location. Could not be better. I would definitely recommend this place and if I�m back in Edinburgh I would book it again.

Susan McClelland, Ayr, Scotland

Wonderful home-away-from-home June 2018
We stayed for 3 nights at this wonderful apartment and loved the experience. Edinburgh was fascinating and this apartment was the star of our 17-day trip. The furnishings and the amenities of this immaculately restored gem were a delight. The listing pictures were spot-on and we had no problems here.

Peter met us on our arrival and introduced us to the apartment and showed us two very special books: the history of the Lothian House and a book of instructions about everything in the apartment with an on/ off switch. WOW what attention to detail.

The location was ideal. A bus stop across the street was the starting point for all of our adventures here.

Thanks Peter and Kirsty for having us. We definitely recommend these digs for anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Mark Biggs, Texas, USA

I absolutely LOVED the place and it was perfect for us
while vacationing from the United States!
June 2018
I loved staying here. The location was perfect, and the owners were extremely helpful!

Keegan Welsh, MI, USA

Beautiful, convenient to walk the Royal Mile June 2018
This apartment has been beautifully restored; it is a lovely home with all the features one wants in a long trip: luxurious bath, efficient washer/dryer, kitchen, and entertainment options. Hosts were excellent communicators and provided thoughtful, clear information in notebook for every appliance, tv, medical resources, etc. When I booked, I wasn�t sure how far away from Princes Street we would be, but we parked our car (right around the corner in a secure garage) and walked everywhere for three days. Several very good restaurants within a few minutes walk offer many choices for meals and several grocery options less than a block away. Perfect end to a two-week, first-time trip to Scotland!

June Joyner, Georgia, USA

Charming, clean, and good location June 2018
The hosts were very attentive and quick to answer questions. We loved this apartment. It was close to everything, especially the castle. When we stepped in, we were impressed with the old time charm feel. The kitchen and restroom were nicely modern, with the rest of the living space traditional. Everything was spotless. Everything you might need is here from tour books to games. They even welcomed us with a few yummy snacks. The owner also made this amazingly thorough book for the apartment. Such a cute place!

Erika Schroeter-Hines, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Very special property in the center of relevant Edinburgh June 2018
We loved our stay at Hopetoun Suite. The flat is in the center of Edinburgh just minutes from everything you could want to see. Upon returning to Hopetoun it just invites you in and make you feel very comfortable. Kirsty was very helpful with suggestions for the city. Would recommend and return to.

Brian Matthew, Louisiana, USA

  May 2018
We have stayed in may AirBNBs and VRBOs thru the year. Most were very nice, some (only a few) not so nice, a few exceptionally wonderful. Hopetoun Suite is clearly exceptional! From our friendly welcome from Peter (sorry we missed meeting Kirsty) to our departure for London, Hopetoun Suite anticiated our every need. The high ceiling architecture, the lovely finishing and decor, the amazing toggle switches and light fitments, the beautiful wood door and floor, the entirely renovated hall and kitchen AND the dark red subway tiles - all made for a comfortable and special home away from home at the end of the day.

Thank you Peter and Kirsty for giving us the opportunity to enjoy Hopetoun Suite - it's a true gem in the middle of beautiful Edinburgh.

Vicki & Guy Leary, Hendersonville, NC, USA

A True Gem May 2018
From the moment we were welcomed by Kirsty, we felt at home in
this awesome apartment. It has everything you need -and then some - and Peter�s instruction manual made using appliances and TV a breeze. The apartment is perfectly located for exploring- several bus lines run by or near your door. It�s true you do hear some sirens but they never kept us awake thanks to the extra glazing on the bedroom window. We would high;y recommend this to anyone as a great base for seeing all Edinburgh has to offer.

Heather Anderson, Ontario, Canada

Love this apartment--with a caveat May 2018
This apartment is beautiful, comfortable, and impeccably maintained. Kirsty was very kind and helpful on check-in. It's also fantastically located. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

However, if you're like me--not traveling as part of a couple sharing a bed and needing to use the pullout sofa in the living room--I'd suggest ear plugs and a request to the owners for a mattress topper.

I traveled with my 75-year-old mom, and she slept in the bedroom. She loved it and said it was comfy and quiet. I slept in the living room, first trying the sofa bed and very quickly deciding that was too uncomfortable to sleep on. It was like I was just laying on the metal infrastructure. So I just slept on the couch without the sofabed pulled out. But I'm very short, and I still couldn't stretch out my legs on the sofa, so it wasn't ideal.

After the first night, I emailed Kirsty and asked if they had a mattress topper, and she said no because they'd never had a complaint about the sofabed.

The living room also doesn't have the double-windows to block sound that are in the bedroom. But ear plugs easily solved that problem.

So as I said: I'd totally stay here again, though I'd be sure to again bring ear plugs, and I'd ask the owners if they could buy a basic mattress topper for my stay (which I just found online for as low as $50). I'd even offer to split the cost with them or spring for it myself since I couldn't bring one with me from the United States. That would have made this stay perfect.

We're sorry you found the sofa bed uncomfortable. It is the best we could buy with the thickest sofa-bed mattress available. It has been used by around a quarter of our guests without complaint. We hope it didn't spoil your stay.

Gabriella Filisko, Chicago, USA

Great place to explore Edinburgh November 2017
We spent a week in the apartment - great location and walking distance to lots of places to visit. It was also easy to just sit and relax. Owners Peter and Kirsty were both very helpful when we needed help. We were in Edinburgh in early December - and yes, it was cold but the apartment was nice a cozy warm.

David Lee, Springfield VA, USA

Thoughtful hosts and cozy accommodation October 2017
Lovely one bedroom with cozy drawing room and modern kitchen that was well equipped. Very well situated for walking to anything in the city center and very close to Usher Hall and theatres. Hosts had thought of everything one would need, including international plugs. Extremely helpful manual for all the appliances and the apartment was sparkling it was so clean when we arrived. A bit noisy from the street below but the bedroom's triple paned glass made it quieter. It was well worth a little street noise to be so close to everything!

Susan Tucker, Denver, USA

  October 2017
What a wonderful flat you have! My daughter and I really enjoyed its comfort and wonderful location. You have thought of everything here & it was nice to arrive and be able to have a cup of tea!

Your decor is lovely and I really enjoyed the peaceful sleep in the bedroom. What a difference the extra window pane makes compared to the lounge.

Thank you for the wonderful experience, we will be back.

Lisa Scale, Lithuania

First rate location and amenities October 2017
The owners have gone out of their way to anticipate and provide everything one might need. There is coffee and milk. There is a washer/dryer that was great to have, and so much more. The apartment was comfortable, more than adequate, and a rental we would wholeheartedly recommend and would book again.

Hadden Blair, Massachusetts

  September 2017
Wonderful location, charming decor, comfortable ammenities. This beautiful, historic flat added so much to our stay in Edinburgh. Kristy was communicative, prompt, and friendly. Highly recommended!

Laura Scott, Atlanta, USA

Lovely Apartment! September 2017
The apartment was very comfortable, exactly as advertised. All the usual amenities were available, it was located very conveniently. Peter was right on time and hospitable. The apartment is located on a busy road, but soundproofing diminished the noise in the bedroom. Internet can be a bit slow if you need to work during the evenings, and due to the noise the windows need to be closed during the night; which precludes ventilation.

Koen van Nieuwenhuizen, Netherlands

  September 2017
Kirsty was so accommodating & welcoming when we arrived - a great first impression! The apartment itself is STUNNING! Everything is perfectly clean, and if there's anything you need, it's here! The biscuits and tablet (our first time trying one!) were delicious & welcome & every place that gets rented out should have an instruction manual line the one here! Thank you so much Kirsty & Peter for making our stay so pleasant & worry free! When we come back to Edinburgh, I know where we want to stay!

John & Kathy Daniels, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Excellent stay. August 2017
We really enjoyed our stay.Lovely flat,excellent location and thoughtful amenities provided by owners.Only request we had ,was a fan for warm evenings as opening windows was uncomfortably noisy for rest. Definetly would stay again.Thank you, Kirsty and Paul.

Missy Rowley, Mississippi, USA

The flat was very clean, comfortable, well-appointed and convenient August 2017
We stayed at the flat during the Fringe Festival. We were close enough to walk to the castle and the festival and the palace, but far enough to get away from the craziness when we wanted to. It was fun being able to see the Tattoo fireworks from our third floor flat.

Sweet little apartment in the heart of the city July 2017
Located in the heart of all the major attractions, walking distance to almost every place we wanted to see. Good availability of local groceries for those who want to make some of their own meals. The apartment has all amenities one could want. It is on a busy street but double glazing in the bedroom makes it almost silent! We loved it and would definitely recommend it! Thanks Peter and Kirsty!

What a real treat; I have stayed at many apartments but this one was the best. It was cozy and comfortable.

Clean, Clean, Clean, and plenty of supplies!

The property was lovely with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. We had wonderful weather so could enjoy the city and surrounding area. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was the bedroom being at the front of the building and on the main road was a little noisy at times, if this could be resolved it would be perfect. Thank you for a lovely week. NOTE: We have now added secondary glazing fitted with acoustic noise reducing glass in the bedroom.

Thank you Kirsty & Peter for sharing your lovely apartment with us. It has all the comforts of home - couldn't ask for anything more. Wish we could stay longer. The location is great. We alked to the Castle, walked the Royal Mile and visited the Palace of Holyrrod. It was nice that our daughter could come on the weekend and we could walk to the main station. Thanks so much for the fudge and shortbread and all the touches which made our stay so enjoyable. We will tell our friends back home about Hopetoun Suite.

We had a lovely stay at the Hopetoun Suite! Booked only a few days in advance and found Peter and Kirsty were very friendly and accommodating hosts. The decor and attention to detail was flawless and made us feel very at home during o
ur stay.

The Suite is in a good location and well worth the fee.

We would definitely choose to come again.

I booked Kirsty and Peter's place for my parents who needed somewhere to stay close to me (I live across the road) with a lift. The flat is really comfortable, cosy and warm. It's a great location, you've all the facilities you could want and Kirsty and Peter went out of their way to make mum and dad's arrival as smooth as possible.

A wonderful flat in a not-so quiet neighbourhood October 2016
We stayed at the flat during the 2016 Halloween weekend. Kirsty and Peter were very nice and welcoming indeed and perfect hosts, thanks very much for that! The flat itself is beautifully decorated and provides everything you need. It is very conveniently located, Princess Street and Edinburgh Castle are in walking distance. You��ll find good opportunities to shop for food, to eat out or to go to see a film in the immediate vicinity. This is wonderful and all worth the five star ratings that were posted by previous guests. If the flat were located in a quieter neighbourhood, we would have also rated accordingly.

Unfortunately, though, Lothian Road proved to be a very busy road with lots of traffic. We should have been aware of this by looking at the map more closely beforehand, but we did not. In addition, this area is obviously very popular with people who love partying (or was it because of Halloween?). In any case, there was a lot of shouting and ruckus during Friday and Saturday night, right into the small hours of the morning, and that put a serious damper on things.

To cut a long story short: If you are a sound sleeper, do choose the flat by all means, it is very good indeed.

This flat is exactly what the photos depict, very nicely appointed, and overall perfect! The decor is just gorgeous and really enhances your stay in a historic city like Edinburgh. Peter and Kirsty were extremely communicative and the instructions for everything in the flat were very thorough. The location is great, and very central to all the great spots in old town Edinburgh. Highly recommend!

Good located and pretty royal September 2016
We loves staying with Kirsty and Peter! The flat is very good equipped, especially the kitchen! The hosts prepared coffee, milk, shortbread and tablet for us, which was very courteous. Everything looks very precious and royal, what makes us feel so cosy and comfortable that we�ve spend more time inside the flat, then we usually do in hollidays. Nevertheless the trafic was quite loud, but that�s the price you have to pay for staying in the heart of Edinburgh. The flat is located so centrally, that going by bus wasn�t needful.

We would love to come back and highly recommend staying with Kirsty and Peter.

Mel Zabel, Bremen, Germany

  September 2016
Kirsty and Peter were very courteous and professional. Kirsty met us at the apartment. We needed extra bedding and Peter stopped by to take care of it right away. The apartment is decorated to a high standard. Kirsty has thought of everything travelers need including ready wi-fi access, Netflix and even travel adapters. The apartment is in walking distance to restaurants with Byron's Proper Hamburger and a Starbucks located across the street!

Perfect in Every Way August 2016
The 2 of us recently enjoyed a stay in this beautifully appointed flat when we traveled to Edinburgh, both for business and to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The property is very centrally located with everything we wished within an easy walk. With a beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle from the front windows, you are right on the edge of Old Town Edinburgh. Transit is efficient and easy to navigate and is right at the door, if you wish to venture further afield. The flat itself is clean and comfortable and contains everything one could need and more. Our hosts were exceptionally helpful, having left a booklet containing instructions for the use of all appliances and information about the neighbourhood. We also found descriptions of the many interesting historic photos and posters which adorn the walls. They went out of their way to check with us after we'd settled in to ensure that we were comfortable. We would recommend this flat to anyone who might be traveling to Edinburgh, and indeed we spent much time whilst there telling international colleagues how amazing our accommodations were. Kirsty and Peter, thank you so very much for a completely enjoyable stay.

5 Star Comfort August 2016
This apartment is so beautiful, clean and comfortable we had to tear ourselves away to enjoy all that Edinburgh had to offer. It is beautifully presented and there is everything you could wish for, a home from home. The decor is perfect, big fluffy towels, great shower, lovely kitchen with everything you need.

The are is so handy for exploring Edinburgh with lots of local shops and restaurants. It's very handy for Haymarket railway station and very easy to find. We had the most wonderful time visiting the fringe festival and would definitely consider booking to stay here again.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. What gorgeous design taste! Everything was good for reaching all points needed for a lovely time at the Festival.

Lovely very well appointed apartment in central location August 2016
Great place to stay, beautifully decorated and appointed. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the owners had thoughtfully left milk, tea, coffee and shortbread for us. Easy walk into Edinburgh and lots of places to eat nearby plus a couple of local supermarkets. Here for the Festival, had a wonderful time, the apartment was the icing on the cake, really lovely, everything you want from a holiday let but often don't get. Will recommend the apartment.

The appartment is situated in a lively neighborhood right in the center of Edinburgh. It's wonderfully furnished, exceptionally clean and has every amenity you could ask for (including a NetFlix account hooked up to the flatscreen TV). If you are a tourist and want to experience Edinburgh, you could not ask for a better location.

They went through a lot of trouble to explain every single device and appliance in the flat. The place was very neat, stylish and comfortable. The interaction was very professional.

We have really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment that has lovely attention to detail. Lots of information available and welcomed little touches like the tablet and shortbread made it really special. It couldn't be in a better location for everything we wanted to visit and we will certainly be telling friends & family about Hopetoun Suite and hopefully be back ourselves at some point. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

Loved our stay and appartment June 2016
It is small apt but very cute... enough for 2 people but I think there was futon too!

Nice and friendly owners

Fantastic flat June 2016
We spent 5 nights in this absolutely fantastic apartment. You could not ask for a property in a better location for exploring the great city of Edinburgh. The apartment was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with all the little extras that make your stay enjoyable. Kirsty and Peter were marvellous hosts and we would certainly recommend this apartment to any of our friends visiting Edinburgh. Peter's instruction manual for everything in the apartment is absolutely Gold Class.

As Good As It Gets! June 2016
My family of three stayed here for a four days in June for my daughter graduation activities from University of Edinburgh. Kirsty was very easy to work with prior to our arrival, and she checked in via email during our stay to make sure everything was fine. I couldn't more enthusiastically endorse this condo as the perfect get-away spot! It is wonderfully furnished and incredibly tranquil. The flat is clean and incredibly well-maintained. The kitchen is well-furnished and provided a source for multiple great meals and gatherings. The location is absolutely perfect for our graduation ceremony. Thanks so much to Kirsty & Peter for making this an easy, relaxing and enjoyable time!!

John & Nancy Manly, Alaska, USA

Clean, modern, well-equipped and well-located June 2016
Spent 4 nights in the Art Deco apartment. The friendly owner met us on time, gave the tour and turned the keys over. The building itself on Lothian Road is secure with outer door key fob needed for entry. Elevators are at each end of the hallway. The apartment was as clean and well-equipped as any we've ever rented, with modern kitchen, bath/shower and very comfortable LR, dining area and bedroom. WIFI was impeccable.

Being on a main road and in a university town means there is and can be street noise. Both Costa and Starbucks are across the street on opposite corners of the building, three food stores are within a block, and dozens of restaurants and pubs (we enjoyed Lebowski's and the Cloisters) are within 10-15 minute walks. Buses throughout Edinburgh stop in front and a taxi stand (aka rank) is 2 blocks up Lothian. We walked easily to museums, Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle, Grassmarket, the Royal Mile and even Holyrood Park.Taxi fare to/from Waverley or Haymarket stations was �7.

We would return to Edinburgh and this apartment in a heartbeat.

Doug & Linda Posson, Maine, USA

The flat is safe and sweet, and the host is very considerate, me friend and I enjoyed very much. The location is pretty convenient for both living and traveling. A supermarket nearby, just 3 minutes' walk, and a nice wine bar with random live music show within 10 minutes walking. I love this place!

Vera & Jessie, USA

Beautifully decorated and equipped with everything one could possibly require May 2016
Our stay was everything we could have hoped. The owners were most solicitous about us and we're on hand to th
oroughly take us through the amenities. They were also avaiLable to assist with any problems which might have arisen - they didn't!

The most striking thing about the apartment was the attention to detail which had gone into the decoration and the appointments. There was nothing that had not been thought of.

The location in central Edinburgh is ideal; every facility is at hand.

We would certainly recommend the Hopetoun Suite to anyone considering visiting the city.

John & Phyllis Rowan, Northern Ireland

  May 2016
A stunning, immaculate flat in a very convenient central location! Kirsty and Peter have decorated the flat in a beautiful art deco style and we were so impressed. Four of us stayed there and the fold-out bed was very comfy - we also really appreciated the tea and coffee available. The weather was hot and sunny while we were there but we agreed that it would be really cosy in the winter. Light sleepers might find it a little loud outside at night, but that's the result of its location right in the centre of the city. I would have no hesitation about booking to stay again!

Wonderful apartment - attention to detail second to none - what more can I say? Convenient location for all the things I wanted to see in Edinburgh - all within walking distance and what better way to soak up the character of the city.

A great find - thank you Kirsty and Peter.00

Wonderfully appointed, clean, great location April 2016
The Owner's met us at the apartment and answered any questions we had. The apt. Was totally redone 18 months ago and is beautiful. It had everything we could want for our three day stay. Bed was very comfortable. The location was fantastic. We walked to downtown Edinburgh twice and the castle is just minutes away on foot. One of the best we have stayed in. Book it if you can.

The flat is everything we could've asked for - just perfect! Warm & cosy, made us feel at home in Edinburgh. Also extremely convenient location. Would definitely choose it again if we happen to come back to Scotland. Thank you for everything. You were very helpful and flexible and we really appreciate it.

El apartamento era perfecto, no pod��amos haber escogido otro mejor. Ofrece todas las comodidades posibles, es especialmente acogedor, y la localizaci��n inmejorable. Kirsty y Peter se mostraron dispuestos a ayudar en todo momento y se ajustaron a nuestras necesidades sin problemas. Sin duda recomendaremos este alojamiento y volveremos si tenemos oportunidad.

We booked last minute and were so happy to get a very quick response. We read all the reviews on Owners Direct, the apartment itself is even better than described. Kirsty met us at the apartment. She was lovely, very friendly and helpful. This was our first time in Edinburgh, certainly not the last. Visited the castle, enloyed it, well worth a visit and in easy walking distance. Really enjoyed our stay, loved the apartment and everything about it. Looking forward to coming back. Thank you so much.

This apartment had everything we needed for our 4 day stay in Edinburgh. The manual provided had very detailed instructions for working all appliances and finding any equipment we needed. The wifi worked perfectly and the bed was very comfortable. The apartment is well heated and will definitely keep you warm in the winter. We found the shower a little difficult to use as it was a digital system, however this wasn't too much of an issue. The apartment is an easy walk to Princes St and there are many restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The hosts Kirsty and Peter were easy to contact and very helpful, always responding within a day. When I asked for extra bedding for the sofa bed it was able to be arranged without any hassle. I would recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Edinburgh!

This is a beautiful flat in a great location in Edinburgh. Flat extremely comfortable and well equipped with great instructions for all the bits and pieces. Kirsty and Peter extremely helpful hosts prior to visit and very friendly on arrival. Would highly recommend to visitors to the city. Easy access to the centre but also plenty of supermarkets and restaurants close by.

Gorgeous apartment. Fabulous location. November 2015
This gorgeous apartment is beautifully decorated with lots of Art Deco style touches. The kitchen has everything you'd need for even a longer stay and has obviously been put together with a lot of thought.The apartment is immaculate and the other residents very quiet & pleasant. From it's very high ceilings to the rich fabrics used, this apartment is a delight. The owners very kindly left us a bottle of wine with which to relax on arrival. Much appreciated, thank you. The apartment is centrally located - just a few minutes walk to Princes Street, Grassmarket, and on to the Castle. The Edinburgh Filmhouse is two minutes walk away and is a wonderful place showing Indie film and offering an excellent cafe/wine bar. In fact there's so much on offer in the vicinity. Along with this goes a little traffic noise at night and rush hour, but a pair of ear plugs for sleeping was a small price to pay for staying in this quite lovely apartment in the center of town.

First time in the UK and the visit couldn't have been better. A good part of that was staying at the lovely Hopetoun Suite, where the attention to detail is evident everywhere you look. Very comfortable and homey but with well thought out decor. And the little kitchen was well-equipped enough for us to make Thanksgiving dinner for our daughter and three friends, who all thought their parents should stay here as well! It was hard to leave.

Kirsty met me at the apartment as arranged and was really helpful and thoughtful. There was milk, tea, coffee, biscuits and Scottish tablet (like fudge but better) provided.
The apartment is extremely well appointed and the instruction manual was really comprehensive and helpful.
The apartment is exactly as described - well appointed and comfortable.
The area is central and, as expected, a little noisy in the early evening but this is perfectly fine and you don't hear anything late night. The bed is so comfy that you nod off quickly too.

Very nice location, central to everything, near castle, under 10 min walk to old town. Only 30 min by transit to airport. Very nice and new apartment with high end appliances. Nice decor also. Owners are very professional and well prepared with a comprehensive manual for all equipment and other such provisions. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable stay.

Kirsty and Peter gave us a very warm welcome and farewell. The guest information was excellent. The flat is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and there is an interesting decor. Obviously a great deal of thought and care to meet the needs of guests. Very central location to walk with ease to the many interesting Edinburgh sites and shops. There is some street noise but that is counterbalanced by it's city location.

Magical Apartment September 2015
Totally impressed by this apartment full of history and close to everything so many little shops eating places the owner was very helpful and friendly. You can walk to Princess St ten minutes a walk through the garden and if you are fit to the castle. You are spoilt for places to shop and eat. The apartment has everything you need and top of the range including TV in the bedroom which I loved. For early morning lie in with my papers the view from the apartment to the castle just beautiful I was lucky enough to have only half a day of rain but get out and explore every nook and cranny of this beautiful place. I felt totally safe and I was travelling on my own. Plenty of little supermarkets close to the apartment including bank machines and transport right out the door will certainly stay here again a fabulous find and so luxurious to stay and beautifully finished.

Beautiful Suite in a Great Location August 2015
The suite is newly refinished and everything you could want has been provided. Peter was a great host and fixed our one small problem promptly. The instructions for everything are brilliant - they really make it easy for you. You can walk to the castle, old town and the royal mile. It is a busy location so don't expect quiet. A very nice stay at the end of the fringe festival.
