The flat was exactly as pictured. It was clean and spacious. The flat is about a 15 minute walk to the attractions. There are a number of restaurants nearby. Jackie was a great host. She let us check in early and left us a basket of goodies to enjoy. We highly recommend Jackie's flat.

Jackie's flat is clean, warm and comfortable, the location is excellent, it only takes 25 minutes to Princes Street and 5 more minutes to Royal Miles Street. There are many restaurants nearby including Star Bucks, Italian, Indian as well as Thai restaurants. She gave us a warm welcome when I arrived at her flat and prepared a basket of goodies for us. We definitely like to stay there again.

We had a great time staying at Jackie's flat. The location is excellent (5 mins from Broughton Street) and the flat is absolutely beautifully decorated throughout. Jackie was really friendly, met us when we arrived and even left us a hamper full of goodies. We rent a flat in Edinburgh every year for a week of the festival and would definitely like to stay here again.
