A self-serve breakfast (tea/coffee, milk, juice, cereal, toast, porridge etc…) is included.
If you are on a budget and choose to buy and cook your own food you are welcome to use the kitchen and utensils and basic condiments - Therefore no need to purchase salt, oil sugar herbs, chilly etc...
LIVING ROOM (Shared) – Spacious and bright living room with laminate floor and large Oriental rug. Coffee table comfortable sofa and chair, whiskey cabinet, foldable dining table which sits up to 4 people. In the evening (or any time of the day) you and anyone else in your party (if over 18) could taste the real flavour of Scotland by sipping a complementary glass of Single Malt Whiskey from my display cabinet. Choose from a variety of whiskey from different regions all with an individual distinctive taste. If you want to know more about what you are about to drink the Whiskey Bible is available for you to satisfy your thirst of knowledge.
If whiskey is not your thing guests could help themselves to a cup of tea or coffee or a fancy infuse (Sorry but no Tea/Coffee/infuse bible is available).
Most of the time guests will be sharing the apartment with just me. When I'm around I am happy to advise guests on things to do & see in Edinburgh and around Scotland. I also enjoy chatting to guests about their travel adventures etc.
If both rooms are occupied by guests I may be spending the night in the living room which from 11.30 pm till 6.30 am (These times can be flexible and adjusted to suite guests needs i.e. early breakfast etc..) will no longer be a shared space but my private space. In any case the living room will always be available to guests during day time and evenings for reading, browsing internet, sipping a whiskey, or just relaxing.
Wi-Fi is available free of charge to connect with your family and friends through your smart phones and/or laptop. However if you do not have a laptop you could use my Computer in the living room set up with a Guest account which is connected to a 32” screen. With a wireless keyboard you will be able to browse the internet comfortably sitting on the sofa. I often enjoy watching streamed Movies or Sports event.
