We hope that you’ve found the perfect dog friendly apartment for your stay in Edinburgh. Read our blog on great Edinburgh dog friendly eateries here as well as great dog friendly pubs where you can enjoy a pint with your dog by your side. And on a cold winter’s night, what could be better than that!

Dogs are always welcome to stay with owners who are going to be taking their dogs with them when they go out but we’re afraid we can’t accept dogs who are going to be regularly left at home whilst the owners, for example go to work, as our experience is that damage is caused in this scenario. An additional £30/week charge is made for each dog and a larger damage deposit will be taken to cover any breakages/damages or extra cleaning which is required.
