Christmas in Edinburgh
This property was perfect for accommodating all the family for Christmas in Edinburgh. Kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed. Christine was very helpful on arrival and made sure we knew where to find everything. Would definitely book this flat again if travelling to Edinburgh with a large group.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent property for a family stay
We are group of 12 including small children. We stayed 4 nights. The property suited our needs entirely. It was clean, spacious, with a fully equipped kitchen. The beds are warm and cosy. The location is also excellent, being a short walk from the Royal Mile. Frequent buses pass by and it is next door to supermarkets, restaurants and a pub. Would highly recommend, and we would happily stay here again. Thanks Judy and Mark!

Well located, comfortable Edinburgh base.
Great apartment. Served our family of 12 well. Two upstairs bedrooms perfect for our four grandchildren. Main floor was well set out, four bedrooms were comfortable. Kitchen was well appointed with everything we could need. Bedding was great and comfortable beds. Towels very nice (could have had a few more, especially hand towels). Only one “common area” so if anyone needed quiet time their only option was bedroom, but for a week quite manageable. Four story climb can be daunting but we managed. Due to location on Main Street can be very noisy in front bedroom and main sitting area, especially with windows open. A bit “tired” -cracks in walls and ceiling that could be repaired and freshened, slow draining shower on main floor a bit off putting, needs ceiling fan in main sitting area or hall to circulate air on hot days. Location was perfect! Located within decent walk to Royal Mile but outside “touristy” area. Easy to get out of town to other sites or walk to park, etc. Long term parking nearby. Communication with owners/managers was excellent. We were driving in and not sure of arrival times - very accommodating! Would highly recommend this apartment for families! We really enjoyed our stay and very much appreciated this apartment.

Everything an extended family could wish for in central Edinburgh
As an extended family of 4 generations, we enhanced our visit to Edinburgh for a family wedding with our stay at Lutton Place. We were within walking distance of everything we needed and, with the electronic key system, people could come and go as they pleased. The 7 flights of stairs were rather a challenge for our 85 year old eldest family member and the children's buggies tended to get parked at the bottom of the staircase. We managed with the 3 bathrooms but it was good we were all family! However, family meals all at the same dining table (with high chairs as well) were a great bonus. The excellent playground nearby kept the toddlers amused and the parking arrangements were as outlined on the website. The owners made every effort to ensure our 4 night stay went according to plan.. Thank you.
