Lorna's place was very nice and accommodating. We spent 3 nights there and it was just perfect for the stay in Edinburgh. Very close to bus stops into the centre and only a 10min walk away from any pub/restaurant.

" The apartment is nice, and well located, 15 minutes from the center , that makes it a very quiet area that is great for rest. The house has the advantage that there are two bathrooms , and when we are several people is perfect. The only pity is that behind the floor there is a small garden which is not accessible , a sunny afternoon with a good beer garden that would be ideal. "

The listing is a shop lot converted into an apartment. The location is quite central, about a 20-30 minute walk to major attractions in the city. Otherwise, the bus stop is right in front of the apartment! Sainsbury's and Fountain Park shopping centre is a 5 minute walk away. You don't get much privacy with the traffic on the road and people walking by the street, but it wasn't a problem for us as we are out most of the day. The interior is sleek, modern and clean, and having two bathrooms is a plus! Shampoo and body wash isn't provided though. Other than that, all amenities are provided (there's a washer although this wasn't described in the listing) and the kitchen is well-equipped (free tea, coffee and milk provided). We did not get to meet Lorna, but she was prompt with replies and arranged for Magda (the housekeeper) to hand us the keys and give us a quick tour of the apartment. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!
