This holiday home is a bright two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a traditional Victorian tenement in the popular Marchmont area, and close to the University of Edinburgh. It's a short walk across the Meadows (an open area of parkland) to the Old Town and the city centre, meaning that you are within easy walking distance of the major tourist attractions, festival venues, shops, nightlife and transport connections.
The bright, spacious and sunny living room has many period features. In winter, the castle can be seen from the bay window, through the trees separating Roseneath Place and Marchmont Crescent. Two large sofas and an arm chair provide ample space for up to six people. There is also a coffee table and TV with digital box for free view and DVD player.
The fully fitted kitchen overlooks the rear shared gardens. The oak dining table can comfortably seat six people. Features include a radio/CD player, tall larder fridge, freezer, gas cooker (hobs), electric fan oven and grill, microwave, washing machine, iron and ironing board, and a ceiling clothes pulley for drying washing if required.
The spacious and bright front bedroom overlooks a bank of trees. The four-poster double bed has a deep pocket sprung mattress and a king-size duck feather and down duvet. (A non-allergenic duvet may be provided instead on request.) A wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table provide plenty of space for your personal belongings during your stay. The traditional fireplace (decorative only; fires are not permitted) adds a period touch to the room, while thick velvet curtains keep the light and cold out of the room when required.
The twin room quietly located overlooking the rear gardens also features a decorative traditional iron fireplace and thick velvet curtains along with a blackout blind to keep out the very early morning sunshine in summer. The room is furnished with twin single beds, a chest of drawers and a wardrobe.
There is a double sofabed in the living room for extra sleeping space. There is a £20 surcharge per person for sofabed users.
The study opens off both the living room and central hallway and is furnished with a large black desk, supportive office chair and shelves, making Roseneath Apartment ideally suited to anyone visiting Edinburgh for work.
The bright, newly refurbished bathroom has a white suite, including a shower over the bath.
The apartment has gas central heating. Local taxes and all reasonable gas and electricity costs are included. For the comfort of future guests, the apartment is non-smoking and pets are not allowed.
