High Standards and High Ceilings

The owners of this lovely ground floor apartment have thought of everything. As well as its central location, this apartment is immaculately presented and tastefully decorated.

Located in the West End of the city, the apartment is just a ten-minute walk away from Princes Street, while Haymarket station and the tram stop are just around the corner. During The Edinburgh Festival walking to Charlotte Square, the Grassmarket and Old Town is easily done and easily accessible by foot too. At the end of a day's exploring, you'll be delighted to return home to Glencairn Crescent.   

The sitting room is a beautiful room with huge high ceilings, a stunning cornice, wooden parquet floors, a pretty fireplace and wooden panelled shutters. As well as all this traditional gorgeousness, there are comfortable leather sofas, a TV with cable channels, a huge range of books and DVDs for a night in with a DAB radio and CDs too. The dining table, which seats 6, sits in the huge bay window which floods the room with light. The master bedroom is enormous and the bed is made up with quality linens and is extremely comfortable, ensuring a great night's sleep. The bed is normally made up as a kingsize, but it can be split into a twin (please request at the time of booking.) Again, there is a very large window letting the light flood in. There is a great selection of Scottish literature as well as books for children and a cot and high chair can be provided on request. The second bedroom is smaller, but is a light and airy double. The immaculate bathroom has a shower over the bath. The modern kitchen is extremely well equipped if you would like to cook at home and there is a small breakfasting table.

Guests are able to access the immaculate private gardens across the road from the apartment. WIFI is available. All the guests who stay at Glencairn Crescent love it. It is a perfect, welcoming and comfortable home from home, in fact so comfortable you will probably not want to leave.

This self catering apartment is available for holiday lets, short term and corporate lets, city and weekend breaks and as Edinburgh Festival accommodation.
