Lawnmarket Apartment, Royal Mile, Old Town, Edinburgh - A Minutes Walk from Edinburgh Castle
About Derek Gibb
Pillowstops is run my husband and wife team Catherine and Derek Gibb. "As a family we have used self catering properties around the world for our own holidays and know how important it is to make sure that when you arrive you are not disappointed with your choice of holiday accommodation. The two main areas of disappointment that we have found are location and standard! The apartments that we offer are situated in Edinburgh's no 1 historic tourist street being the Royal Mile and our apartments are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard exactly as we would want to find ourselves when going on holiday. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.
Derek Gibb purchased this Apartment in 2007

Lovely Stay on Royal Mile
I enjoyed the location of this apartment, so close to everything we wanted to see and experience. Derek was easy to work with and answered our every question promptly. I especially enjoyed the view from the window seats in the living and bedroom area. (Yes, it can be noisy on the streets in the evenings; that never bothered my sleep, but my roommate had a little trouble with it.) Our only surprise was the dryer, which wasn’t what we expected but worked perfectly well for our laundry. Overall, I had an excellent experience and would definitely book this apartment again. Thanks, again, to Derek for working with us!
In the heart of it all!
Our favorite part of this flat was the window seats, affording great views of the happenings on the street below. Easy walk from train station and well equipped for our family of 4. My boys were thrilled to discover a tub of Legos on the bookshelf. Derek was very easy to communicate with and was gracious to allow us a late checkout as he had no one in straight after us. Great hub for exploring the city!
Great location on the Royal Mile, apartment is nice and clean. Would definitely stay here again.
Wonderfully located apartment for the Old Town and all the sights. Everything you could need.
Un appartement de rêve au centre de la vieille ville
Très propre et doté de tous les équipements souhaitables, cet appartement est un petit bijou, situé à un jet de pierre de tous les sites d'intérêt d'Édimbourg. . Les fenêtres en encorbellement offrent une vue imprenable sur l'activité du Golden Mile. L'espace de stationnement, même s'il est à quelques minutes de marche, est un plus. La communication avec le propriétaire fut aisée, en tout temps pertinent. Merci à Derek pour sa disponibilité, son accueil chaleureux et les petites attentions (café, biscuits, etc...)
