Robert Louis Stevenson described Edinburgh’s Arthurs Seat as “a mountain in virtue of its bold design.” Our Bijou apartment in The Old Town hasn't been there as long, but we think “bold design,” works pretty well to describe its playful interior. Located in a secure, gated community, it holds the distinction of sharing the exact site where the infamous Burke & Hare lived in the early 19th century.

There are two things we simply adore: our guests, and a well-designed space! From the duck-egg kitchen with copper accents to the cosy sitting room with dramatic charcoal-coloured wall panels, no detail has been spared. There’s a gorgeous reclaimed teak parquet floor and luxury rain shower. Guests also love the Nespresso machine for their morning coffee before dipping into Edinburgh.

We’re especially proud of the fact that our cosy guest room won a Hilden Award for its styling. The editors called it “fabulous” and noted the personality and quirk of the place.

Best of all? No car needed! You’re right in the middle of it all, nestled at the base of Edinburgh Castle and within walking distance of pretty much everywhere worth visiting!

“We thoroughly enjoyed a great week's stay at Bijou... The apartment itself was incredibly well equipped with a beautiful design and very well appointed to explore Edinburgh... The view from the castle as you step out the front door is almost worth staying for on its own! I would highly recommend.”
