Details about this home
Concierge at Dickins
We want to make sure that you have the best possible stay in your Dickins home from home, so we've hand picked great people and local businesses to help you do just that.
There is building work being carried out in the vicinity by contractors that are only operating during working hours (8am to 7pm). We are glad to report they are producing remarkably little dust. The site is actively monitored by CCTV outside working hours. However, as a result of this a 20% discount is being applied to bookings of any length until further notice.
Parking is also restricted in the street for the time being but there is a large multi-storey car park towards the Lothian Road end of King's Stables Road.
Also, this home couldn't be more central. You are in the middle of the action with lots of bars and restaurants on your doorstep, so do expect a certain level of noise.
Over the Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this property.
24 hour cool-off period: Providing you book more than fourteen days before the start of your stay, you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of making it and we will refund 100% of any charges.
Cancelling after the booking is confirmed: Once a confirmation of booking has been issued to you via email by Dickins, you are responsible for the total price detailed. If you need to cancel, Dickins will try to relet the period for you and if they are successful, you will be reimbursed with the value of the relet less a £75 + VAT charge. If they are not able to relet the period, you will be responsible for the full rental cost. It may be a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance which covers cancellation.

The Old Town is so jam packed with things to do, it is hard to describe in a paragraph. For us The Old Town runs from Mound Place and Market Street to Bristo Square and from Lothian Road to The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, sitting magnificently as it does looking out over the city. It can be seen from miles around. Listen out for the One O’clock gun every day. The massively popular Edinburgh Military Tattoo plays to thousands here each festival. The Camera Obscura will delight both adults and children alike, as will The National Museum of Scotland. Following a major refurbishment, the museum is world class. Greyfriar’s Bobby keeps watch across the road and a wander around the churchyard of Greyfriars Kirk is fascinating and potentially spooky. If you are a sucker for a ghost story, Mary King’s Close is guaranteed to make you scream and there are many ghost tours starting on the High Street. St Giles Cathedral rises magnificently above the Royal Mile and all the closes that run off it are well worth a day exploring. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, The Queen’s Official Residence in Edinburgh, is stunning and sits opposite The Scottish Parliament.Read More
