This is a marmite flat that some will love and some hate. It is a large, characterful flat with a lot of old antique furniture and ancient four poster, an sleigh bed and a double put-me-up bed. It is set only yards away from one of Scotland's busiest and noisiest streets.
Neither the bathroom nor the kitchen are modern. There is no television, but there are hundreds of books a dodgy old grand piano and a guitar.
The views up and down the Royal Mile are stunning.

This extraordinary flat is suspended above the Royal Mile your dining room table overlooks it ( that 's a promise ) It is the town house of a failed Scottish junior artistoicrat who travels extensively and who is prepared to let it to those who can provide first-rate references and appropriate deposits when he is at his country residence.
The flat boast a variety of the owner's antique furniture, ancient family portraits and the two hundred year old four-poster bed in which the owner claims he was conceived and where he says he has every intention of dying! We also have a cranky old Bechstein boudoir piano and a rubbish guitar. This is not a flat for those looking for the conventional apartment-block holiday let with modern mass-produced furniture but a fascinating opportunity to experience a unique traditionally furnished home set right in the centre of the Old Town. Be reassured that we do have the usual modern conveniences, but this place is old and crumbly rather than modern and sparkly

Доступно гостям

Very large flat with light and open front room / dining room giving jaw-dropping views along the Royal Mile. Two large bedrooms and a single eighty year old bed in the sitting room. Piano in the front room. Dated kitchen and bathroom with bath / shower. Wi-fi connection.
Resident porter available for emergencies, but dont ask him for tea bags.
Those wishing to rent out just the four poster bed (and accompanying room) when the owner is in residence - and hopefully not dying in it - are welcome to contact him to discuss terms.

Общение с гостями

The owner is a journalist, writer and waffling storyteller who claims some experience of the traditions, life and legends of Scotland (many generations). He would be delighted to share as much or as little of this as you would like. It is possible to rent when the owner is in residence as half the flat can be screened off from the main section.

Другие важные подробности

There is a gliche! Because it is so hard to get parking we dont have a check in time until seven . We hate this too! If you want to leave bags you can do so in the station. We allow an hour after seven to be friendly but after that we have to pay our staff £10 an hour to hang around so provided you are prepared to tip them this on arrival then fine give us a call and we will do our best, but dont expect to wriggle out of it with a sweet smile and a patronising crumpled fiver. Them's the rules! Folk have to get home to their weeping children, usually by taxi.

Terrific flat with a magnificent collection of historic books, art, and curios. The location at the heart of the bustling Royal Mile simply couldn't be better, so long as you don't mind the sounds of the street. Perfect for one night or as a longer base for visiting Edinburgh and surrounds. Excellent host!

Great place, distinct and unique. We were well taken care of and had a brilliant time. The location is stunning and the flat was lovely - comfortable with everything we needed as well as being a special place to stay.

The flat is located at a really convinces location really close to the railway station. The check in hour is a bit late but u can put the baggage at the station. It's really nice and its just the same as the picture. The host is really kind and nice.

We had a great time in Maxwell's appartment. Even tough we didn't have the chance to meet him, we were wonderfully welcomed by Lynn who could tell us everything we needed to know about the appartment and the neighbourhood. The location is hyper-central, with tourist attractions, pubs, and shops all around. We found everything we needed in the kitchen for the five of us. Coming from 6 days backpacking and camping, the bath/shower felt like heaven, but some people might like a bit more pressure. This would be the only slightly darker point to a great stay, we had nothing to worry about as the towels and bed sheets were in place when we arrived. Even the shower gel and shampoo were at our disposal, and we could help ourselves with some food in the cupboard. Overall you can easily feel at home if you like the ancient style and decoration of the appartment, but I would say it is part of the experience.

Maxwell's flat is in a great, bustling location. The flat is full of interesting items and you can tell there is a story behind each of them. Maxwell graciously shared his time with us when we arrived to share some of those stories. When we stayed, there was a bagpiper and then a saxophonist on the street across the way each evening, but they always finished at an early hour. I would gladly return to Maxwell's flat again.

Location is perfect for us to visit all the tourist spots in just minutes walking distance. The property is a well-furnished vintage home with many memorial goods, books and portraits. My family and I spent great time for the two nights stay. The voice from the street is not a big deal for us. I would recommend my friends to come to stay here and visit Mr. Maxwell.
