Beautiful Spacious Ensuite Room
|住所||Waterfront Avenue, EH51JD Edinburgh, イギリス|
Come and stay with us in our lovely large 4 bedroom house set within a charming development down in Edinburgh's new Waterfront. The room itself is a generous 18m2 and is fitted out to hotel standard with a large King size bed covered with plush pillows and duvet with freshly laundered linens.
Wifi, TV, DVD player and an apple TV to let you unwind, watch a film play music or stream any content you may have. A relaxing seat with reading light is provided for your comfort and a writing desk and seat will let you surf the web, write, plan your stay or work comfortably if need be.
The room also benefits from its own ensuite which boasts high quality fixtures and fittings and a very large vanity mirror with lights. The generous oversized thermostatic shower has a range of settings and a second overhead 'Raindance' for the ultimate shower experience. A large towel rail will keep the supplied towels warm and ready for use.
You have access to our fully equipped kitchen and dining room and our large lounge with doors directly out to the private garden. Our garden accesses a larger shared garden for use with a lovely central sitting area. Free parking is available to the rear of the development.
Whilst there are lots of lovely places to eat we appreciate that you might want to have breakfast before heading out so there is always bread, croissants, fresh fruit and juice available to get you started.
You're more than welcome to share our living space during your stay. The downstairs is large and roomy with lots of artwork and direct access to the garden. However, we've made sure that if you want to relax in your room there is space to sit, read, work and prepare for all Edinburgh has to offer or just kick back and relax in privacy. If you want to grab that first or last coffee/ tea of the day without emerging there is a Nespresso machine with capsules and all you'll need. There is also a full espresso machine and fresh bean grinder in the kitchen for that ultimate caffeine kick.
Waterfront is a new part of North West Edinburgh. Whilst the development is in the early stages the wide tree lined Avenue we live on gives it a distinctly open feel. Walking East along the shore brings you to Granton, Newhaven and Leith Harbours in 5, 15 & 25 minutes with sights along the way and bars/ restaurants from Newhaven and beyond. Head West along the seafront and a wide esplanade lets you meander along the Forth with uninterrupted views until you reach the beautiful Cramond village with it's boats and places to eat.
A 30 minute walk towards town through Inverleith Park and past The Royal Botanic Gardens brings you to Stockbridge with lots of bars and restaurants.
We are directly on the Edinburgh cycle network giving you off road access to most of Edinburgh using the old Victorian railway cuttings and dedicated bike lanes. Cycle maps are all available to plan your trip and bikes can be rented by the day in Leith.
Buses take you in either direction to the City Centre or to Leith in 20 minutes. Night bus N16 will bring you home with a 5 minute walk to the house. An excellent app is available to allow you to plan your trip, get live updates when any bus is due at any bus stop and will allow you to pay for your ticket without trying to find the correct change.
Taxis are plentiful and £10/ 15 minutes gets you back and forth to and from town. Again, we use several companies and would be happy to recommend our favorite.
All the numbers you'll need are provided for you in the room so you can make your plans in comfort and without any stress.
We had a very nice stay with Glenn & Ian. They are both very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and cosy. The bus stop is close to their house and you can go to the city centre easy and fast. We would recommend this accomodation and if we will ever go again to Edinburgh, we hope we could stay again with Glenn and Ian.
Uns hat der dreitägige Aufenthalt bei Glenn & Ian zum Abschluss unseres Urlaubs in Schottland gut gefallen. Das Zimmer ist zusammen mit dem separaten Bad - wie die gesamte Maisonette-Wohnung - modern und sehr ansprechend ausgestattet. Die Wohnung liegt am Stadtrand in einer ruhigen Gegend, mit dem Bus ist das Zentrum einfach erreichbar.
Mit unseren unkomplizierten Gastgebern haben wir uns auf Anhieb sehr gut verstanden.
Wir können dieses Angebot uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
