On the doorstep of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, this collection of nine, utterly-original serviced apartments share an unrivalled pedigree. Crafted from a courtier’s house with a mind-boggling 500-years of history, these apartments bring together ancient provenance and contemporary lifestyle, within slightly-misshapen-but-undeniably-characterful walls. Designed with a nod to the colourful assortment of former inhabitants, the collection of Studio, One and Two-bedroom Apartments are totally unique and intriguingly unconventional. Medieval fireplaces, age-old stone walls and spiral staircases punctuate the building with interesting little quirks that quietly resonate. And then there’s the location. Slap bang in the Royal heart of Edinburgh, which means amazing views across the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Arthur’s Seat. Here is the perfect place for culture seekers who thrive on staying somewhere truly special.

Booked the serviced apartments after reading other reviews. So pleased that I followed advice, such beautiful apartments located in the best place to explore Edinburgh. The apartment was immaculate, very well furnished and the view of Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace was superb. Loved everything about it, would definitely stay again.

We had a wonderful stay in the superbly furnished Lady Margaret Seton apartment. The checking in & out were seamless and we had no issues throughout our stay. Ms Nicole Lu at the front desk was amazingly helpful and also helped with our laundry when the washer was occupied and we had to leave for the day. We will surely return to this property if we have the chance to travel to Edinburgh again.

Everything was perfect. Check-in after hours was easy because a supervisor reached out to us prior to arrival. The apartment was spotless and comfortable. There was even fresh milk in the fridge for our morning tea!

The standard of the apartments are exceptional in every way, even down to the stacking of the cutlery in the kitchen draw! They're stylish and comfortable in a great location close to many Edinburgh amenities.

The location itself - right by Holyrood Palace and the Scottish parliament; Arthur’s Seat in the distance - is hard to be beat. (Not to mention the beautiful and restful Physic Garden that neighbors the property.) But factor in the comfort of the apartment I was in (named after Mrs Lumsden) and the excellence of the service (the brilliant Giulia) and the location suddenly gets some serious competition. I’d stay again…and again…and again.
