2Self Classified Self Catering Ratings explained
2 Chessels Court, 240 Canongate, Royal Mile, EDINBURGH, EH8 8AD
This 3 bed, 2nd floor apartment sits in the very heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, with direct access to the ancient and historical Royal Mile. Located in a traditional red ochre building popular in this part of town, the apartment lies within a courtyard that claims to be one of the oldest in the city. The accommodation comprises of 3 bedrooms, bedroom 1 has a set bunk beds and a single bed, bedroom 2 has 3 single beds and the 3rd bedroom has single bunk beds. All sleeping areas are carperted.
The living area is relaxed and inviting with 2 neutral coloured sofas, blending into the light modern décor, wood floors and a coal effect wood burning stove, as well as a dining area.
A well equipped kitchen includes hob, oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher. All necessary crockery, cutlery and cookware is included.
A stylish, spacious bathroom with a shower featuring an extra wide showerhead for an invigorating dip, as well as a deep bath, sink and toilet. Again, décor is modern and light.
Outside, the apartment is fronted by a grassy area which leads directly onto the Royal Mile, though noise from this busy street does not impact on the property. The best of both worlds, perhaps?

NON SMOKING. Please note there is NO PARKING at this apartment. Parking options below. Min 3 nights all peak periods and events and August.

Due to being a family-run business and not a Hotel, we do not offer a 24hr Reception. Therefore, we may not always be available on the premises in person. Reception is open from 8am until 5pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 4pm at weekends.

On 26 March 2006 the law on smoking in Scotland changed. Smoking is no longer allowed in enclosed public places.

We regret that this is not available.

Parking in Edinburgh is extremely difficult, very expensive and virtually impossible within the city centre. Only 3 out of our entire range of holiday apartments have bookable parking and these spaces must be pre-booked and are subject to a rate of £10 per night. There is un-restricted parking available close to our apartments
