Our Clients

Edinburgh International Festival

“Dickins have a fantastic range of apartments and houses in great city centre locations and have provided us with many wonderful apartments year after year.”

Jill Jones, Artists Manager, Edinburgh International Festival

“Unique Events regularly work with Dickins to source quality apartments in Edinburgh for our festivals and events. Nicky and the team at Dickins are always helpful, efficient, professional and friendly. We know when we book a Dickins apartment that the standard will be high, the booking process smooth and each stay a pleasant and homely one.”

Verity Blanchard, Project Manager, Unique Events

“Dickins have provided the Pleasance with invaluable support for many years, sourcing accommodation during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe that perfectly suits a diverse range of requirements. Louise and her team are able to deliver the goods with a personal touch. They understand that accommodation during the Fringe needs to be more than simply a roof over your head – it is a home from home during one of the most stressful months of the year – and work hard to provide just that and, importantly, for a reasonable budget.”

Hamish Morrow, General Manager, Pleasance Theatre
National Theatre of Scotland

“I’m grateful to the Dickins team for providing us with high quality accommodation, together with a friendly, professional service. I look forward to working with them again in the future”


Nick Field, Senior Production Coordinator, National Theatre of Scotland
The Best of Edinburgh

“Coming to Edinburgh every August would not be nearly so satisfying if we weren’t housed, no, coddled by, Louise Dickins and her staff. We must see many plays every day and coming “home” to a beautiful flat has kept me sane! We’ve been fortunate to have the same flat for the last few years, but every flat we’ve rented has been wonderful. Thank you Louise, most sincerely!”

Carol Tambor, The Tambor Award
Gilded Balloon

“Our company has used Dickins for years and has found that their attention to our needs is excellent. The service is personal and exceptionally good and the stand of their accommodation is very high.”


Karen Koren, Artistic Director, Gilded Balloon

“Louise Dickins & her team are a delight to do business with. Their properties are some of the nicest in Edinburgh, and they’re always easy to get hold of in the unlikely event of any problems.”


Sharon Burgess, Managing Director, Assembly Festival
Young Pleasance

“For nearly 20 summers Louise and her team have looked after Young Pleasance during the Festival in August and nothing is ever daunting, or too much trouble for them. It’s the flexibility I appreciate, hearing the reassuring words, “of course we can sort something out for you”, makes all the difference.”


Kathryn Norton Smith, Associate Director & Producer, Young Pleasance
KAL Software

“We have used Dickins for over 3 years for short term corporate lets. The service they provide is fantastic. I have always found the staff to be extremely efficient, helpful and polite. The apartments are always gorgeous, finished to a very high standard and spotless. We would highly recommend Dickins whether it be for a short break to Edinburgh as a tourist or for corporate use.”


June Allan, Korala Associates Ltd
Get Comedy

“Dickins have been our “go to” company for Fringe flats for many years and they never fail to deliver fantastic accommodation and exceptional service. They’ll continue to be our first point of call and we cannot recommend them highly enough.”


Martyne Green, General Manager, Get Comedy
Scamp Theatre

“Dickins are always our first port of call for Edinburgh accommodation. Their service is first rate and their properties a cut above the rest. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and they always find what we’re looking for.”


Louise Callow, Co-Director, Scamp Theatre
Glorious Management

“We’ve been using Dickins to find Festival accommodation for years. They always find us great apartments but the thing I really value is that when a problem crops up, they are straight onto getting it sorted. That gives me peace of mind.”


Lisa White, Owner (“Queen Bee”), Glorious Management
Edinburgh International Magic Festival

“Each year 8000 audience members and over 60 performers come to our festival in Edinburgh. We need to house our performers somewhere central, quality and from a supplier we can trust. Dickins was recommended to me five years ago and they have always delivered excellent, centrally located accommodation at a competitive price. In the festival industry you often face last minute changes of plan. Dickins have always been able to respond to our requests, they’ve been easy to work with and I would recommend them to anyone looking to rent accommodation in Edinburgh.”


Kevin McMahon, Artistic Director, Edinburgh International Magic Festival
Mick Perrin Worldwide

“The staff at Dickins are always helpful and the website is easy to navigate. The pictures on the site are a proper guide to what to expect with the standard of accommodation, which is really reassuring when booking for other people.”


Jenny Kelly, Office Manager, Mick Perrin
Richard Alston Dance Company

“I would like to thank you Dickins and especially Michelle, she was lovely. Despite few problems with the previous tenant she made a special effort to get the apartment ready on time for us. It was a very comfortable stay, a very well furnished apartment and a great location.”


Richard Alston, Artistic Director, Richard Alston Dance Company
Winvic Construction Limited

“We recently needed “home from home” accommodation for an employee. Dickins was able to offer a good choice of high quality apartments and made the whole process very easy. Their staff are knowledgeable and extremely helpful.”
