Edinburgh is a city where there’s a dizzying selection of things going on at any one time but with Dickins help, you’ll know more about what’s happening than locals do! Our blog What the Dickins: A Tale of Edinburgh City is full of great info too.

Just finished a weeks’ holiday at your fabulous apartment in Thistle Street and couldn’t fault it. Our 5th visit to Edinburgh and our 5th rental apartment…definitely the best in every way from the service we received when booking to the location and excellent facilities. Thank-you so much. We will be back!

Holidays are meant to be memorable for the right reasons, so there’s nothing worse than the sinking feeling you get when you read a text message from your Airbnb owner when you get off the plane saying that their boiler is broken and they are going to have to cancel your booking.

When you use Dickins, you can relax from the moment you’ve made the booking because if a problem arises before or during your stay, we’ll be on the case to resolve it quickly and if that’s not possible, then we’ll move you to another of our quality holiday apartments in Edinburgh. We pride ourselves on finding great solutions quickly.  Renting from an established professional agency instead of a private individual gives you peace of mind – and it’s not going to cost you more either.

After scrolling through a ridiculous amount of properties on multiple websites I was so ready to throw in the towel and call it a day. But my last search request led me to your website. Each and every single one of these apartments are so much more beautiful than what I have seen so far! I am now hoping that you still have availability for at least one of them…
