The Tay Street Residence is a delightful two-bedroom apartment, located in a quiet setting just one mile from the city centre. With thoughtful touches such as DVDs, Wii console and board games, this is the perfect home from home for your visit to Edinburgh.

The light and airy living room provides guests with cozy couches, tasteful decoration, and plenty of entertainment with Freeview TV, DVD player with DVDs, Wii console and games, and super speedy Virgin broadband. A clever space saving coffee table allows for dining space for two guests, and the fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to rustle up your own culinary delights. If you fancy someone else doing the hard work, there’s a plethora of take-aways and pub grub locally, as well as more mainstream ventures just a few minutes’ stroll away at Fountain Park, including Nandos, a world cuisine buffet and Pizza Hut.

Guests are spoiled in the master bedroom with king size bed, TV and DVD player and seemingly endless storage, while a second bedroom features a double bed. The shower room benefits from electric shower, toilet and sink, and shelving for toiletries.

The local area provides guests with a more residential setting, so a safe and peaceful night’s sleep away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre is ensured. However, when the time comes to explore, you’ll still feel like everything is on your doorstep as The Old Town is just one mile away. Along with the local amenities such as an independent deli, bars and grocery stores, another great advantage to this area is rainy-day paradise Fountain Park. This fantastic leisure park is just around the corner and boasts a cinema, bowling, soft play, Virgin Active gym and a good variety of family favourite restaurants.

If you fancy traveling further afield, there are superb Lothian Bus links just around the corner on Dundee Street that will take you to the Airport, Leith and The Royal Yacht Britannia, and the Royal Mile and other central attractions. Haymarket train station is also less than one mile away.

A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 21:00 will incur a fee of £30 for unsociable hours. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.
