Moray Place

Welcome to Moray Place

Firmly in the top tier of Edinburgh's countless architectural treasures, it's no wonder that the iconic Moray Place frequently doubles as a key location in feature films and period dramas. Horse-drawn carriages, Edwardian nannies, and top-hatted gentry have all been spotted whilst the cameras rolled! Moray Place's stately facades encircle idyllic gardens, making this in every sense the spiritual centre of Edinburgh's prestigious Moray Estate

But for many of our returning guests it's simply synonymous with their cosy, private and welcoming home-from-home. No more, no less.

Despite being on this grandest of historic streets, you'll enter an informal and convivial base for your Edinburgh stay. Spacious, thanks to its ingenious semi-open-plan layout; relaxed, thanks to considered and clearly demarcated living areas; and private, thanks to its own front door and pleasant courtyard, each reserved for your exclusive use.

Once inside your eyes are immediately met by a generous Sitting Room, kept bright & airy by an original sash window with working shutters. Given that this is the principal space it's the hub of the house - comfortably furnished and soft on the eye, with a premium and subtle Scottish flair. Adjoining this, a very spacious enclave easily accommodates a full-size quality dining table, which can even be extended on request (...guests have successfully hosted family Christmas lunches here!). Handily adjoining this, a modern Kitchen incorporates every convenience, huge storage space and endless worktops in solid wood - all of it generously lit by two large windows overlooking your courtyard.

As the day ends a (5'0") king-size bed awaits, to recharge your batteries for adventures that follow. Wonderfully comfortable, secluded and luxuriously paneled, the muted palette of this warmly-lit space provides peaceful detachment from the rest of the apartment. Mere footsteps away you'll find a generous Bathroom, dominated by a huge walk-in rainfall shower but well-lit and large enough to leave plenty of space for hair and make-up.

Doubtless you'll spend most of your visit occupied by the sights & sounds of Edinburgh, but those days will be rendered even more enjoyable knowing they're topped-and-tailed by the calm of this Moray Place treasure to call home...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moray Place. The bed was extremely comfortable, we slept 12 hours straight after 24 hours of travel! The apartment not only looked wonderful, but also worked well. All appliances were in perfect working order and had clear instructions. All the lights worked, shower was large with great water temperature and pressure. The kitchen had every utensil we needed, and more! For those bothered by noise, this apartment is wonderfully quiet! Moray Place is a great location, we walked everywhere, but had our lovely little oasis to come back to in the evening. You will not regret staying here, we can't wait to return!

SUZANNE, Harbor Springs, USA

What a discovery and what a place! Right at the heart of Edinburgh's smartest neighborhood this spacious apartment wants for nothing. And despite being at the heart of everything it's whisper quiet, with the best bed ever. The kitchen is better equipped than our own at home, the bathroom is luxurious with a huge and powerful rainfall shower, and the main accommodation is just so thoughtfully done and smartly furnished. Two blocks one way takes you to Stockbridge with its village vibe and two blocks the other to upscale George Street, it couldn't be better placed to walk everywhere.

WAYNE, Vancouver, Canada

Lovely tastefully decorated apartment, spotlessly clean, with first class attention to detail. Very well appointed, the flat had everything we needed for a most enjoyable short break. Conveniently located near the West End, close to city centre and transport links. We were delighted, this was possibly the best holiday accommodation we have ever rented.

JACKIE, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK

As my husband said when we walked into the property, 'I want to live here forever.' This flat feels like a true home. Martin and Weng were incredibly helpful and everything about check-in went smoothly. The flat is immaculate and looks even better than in the pictures. The neighborhood was absolutely gorgeous (with the added bonus of filming happening nearby and there were a bunch of extras strolling around the neighborhood in period costume. It was magical). The shower was heavenly, the kitchen was well appointed and the washer/dryer was so wonderful to have. Even the iron is first rate. We cannot imagine a better place in Edinburgh. We hope to come back and stay again and again.

ROB, New York City, USA

We loved our stay at this flat! It was so clean, organized, and cozy, and the owners were so thoughtful and responsive throughout, that it felt more like staying at a friends home than at a vacation rental. The location is perfect as well. It is in a very nice, quiet neighborhood, while still within walking distance to everything in the city. I would highly recommend this property, and can't wait to return!

HAYLEY, Gloucester, USA

My husband and I travel internationally quite a bit, and we have stayed at a LOT of home rentals over the years. This was by far our favorite experience - no exaggeration! We spent ten days here over the Christmas holiday, and it was the perfect place to get away - it far exceeded our expectations!

KATE, Seattle, USA

We spent an absolutely lovely 3 days in Weng & Martin's place towards the end of a 4 week UK trip. We have stayed in 9 other rentals on this vacation, and all have been welcoming, attractive and comfortable. But this flat is in a class of its own. It is gorgeously decorated, thoughtful touches throughout, well-equipped. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely, in a circle of Georgian town homes across from a private garden. A 5-10 minute walk in any direction takes you to Stockbridge, with its shops, bars and restaurants, or to New Town or to the Castle District. We look forward to returning to Edinburgh someday, both to visit this wonderful city AND to stay in this flat again!

KELLY, Seattle, USA

Don't hesitate; just book this place!! Martin and Weng are wonderful hosts who have thought of everything. Their flat is decorated in a cozy, welcoming way, with personal touches that give it style and character. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linens. The bathroom had a great shower and heated towel rack. Excellent lighting throughout the flat. We could go on and on!! Moray Place is a beautiful Georgian crescent, quiet and elegant. It's an excellent location; easy walk to Stockbridge and both the New and Old Towns. We walked everywhere! Lots of cafes and pubs nearby. In short, this is one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in! Thanks Martin and Weng; lovely to have met you.

WENDY, Victoria, Canada

We will come back here again in a heartbeat! We have stayed at a lot of rentals all over the globe and have never felt as welcome, comfortable, and at-ease as we did here. Weng and Martin have gone above and beyond. We love to cook and the kitchen was sparkling clean and well equipped (which is often an issue with rentals). The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was crystal clean, and the living space was quiet and spacious. The location is fantastic for getting around whilst also being quiet.

FREYJA, Toronto, Canada

The flat was glorious and had everything you could need! It was a lovely place to come back to after a day of exploring. The location was perfect, easy to walk to all attractions and a perfect base to explore Edinburgh. The flat was set on a road full of wonderful Georgian houses. Would definitely recommend and stay again if we were to visit again. Thank you, we had a brilliant time in Edinburgh.

VICKY, Chelmsford, UK

Thanks Weng and Martin for such a great experience and a lovely flat. The positive reviews are accurate, it's a wonderful place. We especially appreciated the quiet location and the proximity to the city but also to Stockbridge with a cool market on Sunday and great shops/foodie places too. Weng and Martin were so helpful and quick to respond, thanks again, I definitely recommend this place!!

EMILY, Falmouth, UK

The flat was perfect in every way and this made our time in Edinburgh really special. When we arrived at the flat the lamps had been turned on and the heating was on making it feel very welcoming and homely. The street is elegant and peaceful and only a 10 mins walk from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh city centre. Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts and we are really looking forward to staying in the flat again very soon.

RACHAEL, Chineham, UK

Such a great place to stay in Edinburgh. The apartment really is in the perfect location; 5min walk down into Stockbridge and 10mins over to George Street and Princes Street for the restaurants and shops. The street is really quiet and the apartment is a great size for two people. The shower was hot and powerful, all the joining/leaving instructions were easy to follow and the apartment is exactly like the photos if not better. Weng and Martin were on hand for any advice we needed and were very friendly and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment.

JESS, Beverley, UK

Having spent the last 3 nights here we are sad to be leaving this wonderful town apartment that is run by two very nice people. The hosts are very helpful and gave great local knowledge to us. The place was spotless and has a real Scottish vibe with all the decor. Newly refurbished and felt very clean and well maintained. The place is a stonesthrow away from the Christmas markets and main high street. Would highly recommend this place to stay and being a well-traveled person it will be hard to find an on-par bnb in the future. 5* all-round

JON, London, UK

If you are looking for amazing accommodation in the heart of the city, look no further! We were lucky enough to stay for 3 nights in this building that began life in around 1770 and is still looking elegant and majestic. The little touches around the place show that Martin and Weng know exactly what you need: a spotless space, high quality towels and bed linen, easy to use heating and a great shower! The decor is outstanding and when we return, there is only one place to stay. HERE! A big thank you to both for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

LISA, Birmingham, UK

This place was beyond beautiful, we had every amenity that we could possibly need. Martin & Weng clearly take a lot of pride in this apartment as when we arrived it was spotless, every facility has clear instructions and the check-in/check-out process was effortless. The little touches when we arrived made this a truly unforgettable stay. We will be recommending this place to all our friends/family.

GISELLE, Upminster, UK

The apartment was really lovely, very stylish, clean and we had everything we could have needed. We both very much appreciated the efforts made to make us feel welcome / at home and our hosts were easy to reach as well as being very helpful. The location was amazing, easy walking distance to the town centre.

CHRIS, Lapworth, UK

This is a fantastic place to stay. The accommodation has been done very tastefully, is extremely clean and feels very spacious. There were lots of thoughtful touches added to make your stay welcoming and easy. It is in a great location for central Edinburgh, and the hosts are very responsive and helpful when you need them.
