Reviews

“Most enjoyable two night stay”

We loved our time at 20 York Place! It was a gorgeous apartment, in a fantastic central location with stunning views and all the amenities we needed. Beds were very comfy, bathrooms modern and most important super clean! The service at time of booking and throughout arrival etc was brilliant, we will be back for sure.  Edinburgh is a fabulous city and definitely worth a visit. Thank you for making it so easy for us and so enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending York Place to friends and family! Thanks again!

“20 York Place – Excellent”

Amazing space right in the heart of Edinburgh.  The apartments have been beautifully restored and the team looked after us on our arrival and gave recommendations of places to eat and things to do in the day.  I would recommend the apartments and using “Destination Edinburgh / Glory Days” to everyone.  Great business – Keep up the good work……..
