The Parkgate Residence Edinburgh – 2 Bedroom Holiday Apartment

It’s the ideal location – right in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town yet situated in a lovely quiet spot with stunning views of Arthur’s Seat – the two bedroom Parkgate Residence Edinburgh, now known as The Botanist Apartment, is your perfect stylish holiday home-from-home where you will find a real warm contemporary Scottish welcome.

The new name reflects the history of the land the apartment is built on where 17th Century formal gardens for houses on neighbouring Canongate were situated.

Everything that Edinburgh city centre has to offer is a short walk from here – the Old Town, the New Town, Princes Street – history, architecture, galleries, shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres and cinemas are all within easy walking distance of your holiday apartment. You can even plan a relaxing (or not so relaxing) walk nearby in Queens Park taking in the breathtaking views of the City from Arthur’s Seat.

This is a superb 2nd floor flat forming part of an exclusive luxury built development adjacent to the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and Dynamic Earth. Marvel at the stunning view of Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags as you sit and have breakfast at the solid oak dining table, planning your day in this fabulous city.

Relax into the sumptuous leather chesterfield sofas with their cosy pure wool plaid cushions as you settle back to watch some of the classic Scottish film DVDs that have been chosen for you. Enjoy the modern Scottish art showing scenes from around Edinburgh.

Crisp white 200 count Egyptian cotton bed linen and top of the range memory foam/pocket spring mattresses provide the ultimate comfort for a great night’s sleep, as you recharge from your days exploring this iconic city. Bedroom 1 features a super king bed, which can also be set up as two single beds, and an en-suite shower room with toilet and basin. In bedroom 2 you will find a double bed. There is also a main bathroom with a bath and shower over, toilet and basin.

The flat comes with the convenience of an elevator/lift – very handy if you’ve worn yourself out with sightseeing (or shopping)!

There a designated garage parking space, as well as a flat screen TV, NowTV Box, Bose Soundlink speaker and wifi throughout.

Tasty eateries and cafes are right on your doorstep allowing you to refuel after a busy day or set yourself up for a day of shopping with a hearty breakfast. There is also a handy local supermarket in the same block should you wish to relax and cook at home in your fully-equipped kitchen which includes a dishwasher, washing machine and microwave.
