Situated half a mile from Waverley railway station, Q-Residence offers self-catering apartments with free Wi-Fi. Edinburgh Airport is 7 and half miles away and there are regular bus services to and from the airport.

Each stylish, serviced apartment features views of Queen Street Gardens, modern furniture, a spacious living room with a double sofa bed, a dining area, and a separate kitchen. Ideal location. Less than 10 mins to train station Waverley. Royal mile is 10-12 mins walk. We are at apartment 2 which is on the 1st floor. It was an excellent 2 bedroom flat. The only issue is there is only 1 bathroom so if there are more people then it’s inconvenient. Kitchen is fully equipped. Heating was excellent.
