Key features

Stay in style, at The West End Residence. With lovingly restored original features, such as cornicing, hardwood floors, fireplace and full-length bay windows, this is a magnificent example of Edinburgh’s famous 19th century architecture. However, guests are kept in comfort with modern day upgrades such as Miele appliances and a newly fitted luxury bathroom. Add in to that an outstanding location in the West End, this two bedroom apartment is simply perfect for your next visit to Edinburgh.

Entering the impressive drawing room, you’ll be delighted by the delicate balance of traditional and contemporary, with playful pops of colour set against the neutral backdrop. Sumptuous sofas help you to take the weight off your feet after a long day’s exploring the city, and the dining table enjoys views over the Victorian street below. Your entertainment needs are also met with LG Smart TV with Freeview, and super-fast fibre-optic broadband.

When it’s time to rustle up some treats, the newly renovated kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Designer Miele appliances, including dishwasher, ceramic induction hob and integrated washer/dryer, make light of any hard work, and further dining space is perfect for a quick coffee and croissant before the day’s adventure.

Two beautiful bedrooms located at the quiet rear of the property ensure a peaceful night’s rest. Flexibility is key, as one room has a double bed, and one has a zip’n’link style that can be set up as either twin beds or a super king. Both rooms have plentiful guest storage. The newly fitted bespoke family shower room completes this wonderful home from home.

Coates Gardens combines an excellent central location within the heart of Edinburgh's West End in an elegant residential Victorian street that exemplifies the New Town grand design. The property enjoys all the benefits of city centre living and the local area is awash with galleries, boutiques and delicious patisseries. The New Town and Stockbridge are just a few minutes’ stroll away, and our infamous Medieval Old Town, home to Edinburgh Castle and The Royal Mile, is also just a haggis’ throw away at less than a mile or 15 minute walk.

This property is perfectly situated for both city centre exploration, and easy access to the rest of Edinburgh, Scotland and beyond. The main tourist attractions are within walking distance, and frequent public transport routes to other areas of the city pass through Haymarket Terrace at the end of the street, including Edinburgh’s famous new Tram and the Airlink airport bus. Haymarket railway station is also a short walk away, and Waverley station is a 5 minute taxi journey away. Edinburgh Zoo, Murrayfield Stadium and Murrayfield Ice Rink are a short drive or bus journey away.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 21:00 will incur a late 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.

Please note, if you require the sofa bed to be made up and have not booked for the maximum number of guest, there will be an additional charge.

Easy to deal with, even during these Covid times.

Clear, straightforward couldn't fault it.



We stayed in this apartment as part of our move to Edinburgh in Feb 2021 (Covid times). It was absolutely ideal. Clean, well equipped, warm, ideal location for our purposes.

We are notoriously poor sleepers, highly sensitive to uncomfortable beds & noise at night. We haven't slept so well anywhere else as in this flat (and that includes our own home!). Really great comfortable mattresses & quiet bedrooms. Oh, and the broadband was good - as my daughter needed it for her online schooling.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
