David ist ein liebenswerter Gastgeber und wir haben uns bei ihm wohlgefühlt. Wir können ihn wärmstens weiter empfehlen.
David was an excellent host. He allowed us to drop our bags off early and provided us with a key so we could return in the evening as we wished. He is a pleasure to chat with and gave us excellent recommendations on restaurants nearby. The location is great. Broughton is a real neighborhood with nice shops. It is very local; not as touristy. David also recommended a 30 minute walk to Leith along the river. We recommend both the walk and Leith highly.
The only downside is that the accommodations are not up to others we've booked on Wimdu. Especially the beds, if you value sleeping comfort as much as we do. The pictures are indicative of the accommodation so if you are OK with the room, we can highly recommend David and the location is very good, especially for people who like a little bit of a walk to the sites and restaurants. It's walkable to the royal mile though uphill.
Vielen Dank für den lieben Empfang mit Tee, obwohl wir weit vor der vereinbarten Zeit angekommen sind. Sehr schönes Zimmer und toller Garten wo man ein paar Tage länger bleiben kann. Leider ging unser Urlaub nach dem leckeren Frühstück schon zu Ende. David konnte uns noch einige Tipps für die Stadt geben.
Wir verbrachten 5 wundervolle Tage bei David. Er versorgte uns nicht nur mit einer guten Übernachtungsmöglichkeit und Frühstück, sondern half auch wo immer er konnte: bestellen eines Taxis (übrigens 7,80 Pfund bis ins Zentrum), Tipps und Tricks (Kofferaufbewahrung am Busbahnhof günstiger als am Hauptbahnhof (5 - 7 Pfund, je nach Größe des Faches), Wegbeschreibungen, holte Infos über's Internet für uns ein und erzählte uns so manch Wissenswertes über Land und Leute. Also, David, besten Dank und vielleicht bis bald.
David was welcoming and helpful: lending us city maps, suggesting nice places to visit (Cramond village), waking up at 7 AM in order to make breakfast before we would head out to the great Edinburgh run! We also had the chance to listen to some live guitar! ;) And the bread was delicious! The flat is nice, a 12-minute walk from the city centre.
David est très accueillant et de bon conseil. On peut aller facilement à pied de chez lui jusqu'en centre ville. Une seule chambre mais possibilité de 5 couchages et très bon petit déjeuner le matin.
Ons verblijf in Edinburgh bij David was super! David is een zeer aardige en attente gastheer. Hij is ook een interessant en open-minded mens, waarschijnlijk ook door de vele reizen die hij gemaakt heeft. Ik zou iedereen die naar Edinburgh gaat en gebruik maakt van een accomodatie van Wimdu onmiddellijk David's appartement aanraden. Het is basic, maar erg gezellig en je voelt je er meteen thuis.
David, thank you so much for having us, we had a great time at your place and we enjoyed talking to you. We would recommend anyone to book this apartment in your home. Joyce, Cas and Marjon
Welcoming, quiet and characterful niche in central Edinburgh. Walking distance from all the main sights, shops etc yet no traffic noise! The room warm, peaceful and well thought out with good storage a desk, chair and comfortable armchair as well as good bed. I was able to come and go at times that suited me - no restrictions or complications. David a considerate and practical host, who made my visit a real pleasure.
I had a really great stay at David's flat in Edinburg. The flat is centrally located. It is only 10-15 minutes walk in the city center so that no public transport is needed. The flat was very clean and nicely decorated (with a very lovely garden). David was very kind and always very helpful when I had a question. I would always contact him again when I need to go back to Edinburgh.
