We stayed in the Circus Lane property for two nights while up in Edinburgh on a shopping weekend. Alison was a great host, providing everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend Purslane restaurant, just round the corner on St. Stephen Street. Absolutely beautiful meal and fantastic for a special occasion. The apartment is in an excellent location, just a 15 minute walk to Waverley Station and to Princes Street, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you feel like you are stepping out of the city.

Guestbook reviews

This is one of the nicest accommodations we have ever stayed in. Very clean and with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. It is situated in a quiet little lane in the area of Stockbridge but within 15mins walk of Waverley. Ali, who attended our arrival, was very friendly and came to meet us at the agreed time. She told us everything we needed to know before leaving us and assured us she was on the end of the phone should we need anything. It is a short walk (2mins) to the main street of the village where there are a good selection of shops/restaurants/bars/grocery store. The riverside walk is lovely and market on Sunday morning is interesting. All the attractions of the city are not far away and after 2 busy days of sightseeing it was a joy to go back to the quiet of the Mews. It is such a comfortable place and very relaxing. The decor and the finishing touches made for a top class visit, which we would repeat without question
