About Marchmont Self Catering, Roseneath & Gladstone Apartments
I created Marchmont Self Catering in 2008, when my partner and I moved in together and we kept both our flats in Edinburgh. Roseneath Apartment had been my home for about 8 years, while Gladstone Apartment had been Pete's home for about 20 years! We have both loved living here and hope that you will also love staying in the flats during your visit to Edinburgh. The area is lovely, just on the edge of the Meadows, walking distance to the city center and with an excellent bus service to get to the center quicker and to all destinations around Edinburgh, whether you are here on holiday, visiting family and friends, or for work.
Marchmont Self Catering, Roseneath & Gladstone Apartments purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Marchmont Self Catering, Roseneath & Gladstone Apartments chose Newington
Roseneath Apartment is located in the Marchmont area of Edinburgh, which is popular due to its close proximity to the city centre, frequent bus services and amenities combined with the open spaces of Bruntsfield Links and the Meadows, which are particularly great for families. Once a village in its own right, Marchmont still retains its own identity with unique shops and cafes, despite being only a short distance walk to the city centre, where you’ll find all you need (and more), including: • Wide variety of shops including a Co-Op store, off-licence, deli’s, newsagents, fresh fruit and veg shops • Restaurants and café’s, including Eddie’s Fish Shop (famously the best fish shop in Edinburgh), • Good selection of pubs • Takeaways (Chinese and Italian) • Banks • Warrender Swim Centre (first opened in 1887). Marchmont is also ideal for families – the flat is situated right beside both the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links which are the perfect place for games of frisbee and football. There’s also the option of tennis at the Edinburgh Leisure courts, as well as a children’s play park with swings and multi-activity compounds. Bruntsfield Links is also home to the oldest short-hole golf course.

Wonderful flat in a great location
Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day visit to Edinburgh and a big part of that was our very convenient and comfortable stay at the Roseneath flat. The rooms were bright and spacious with lovely high ceilings. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed and the shower was lovely! The flat is well located and within walking distance to the locations we wanted to visit. Having a Scotmid co-op across the street and other shops near by was an added bonus. We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for your lovely review and I'm delighted to hear you found Roseneath apartment convenient and comfortable. It sounds like you had a great time in Edinburgh and we'd love to welcome you back.
excellent apartment in an excellent location
We have had many happy holidays in this wonderful apartment. We like the village-feel of the local area and its excellent facilities, and we always enjoy the short walk across the park to the city centre. Having found it, we have never stayed anywhere else on our annual trip to Edinburgh. Highly recommended.
Wonderful location, hospitable owner, lovely apart
This apartment is a block away from the Meadows and so within easy walking distance of the University, old Town, Princes Street and gardens, as well as wonderful neighborhoods in the immediate vicinity. It is just around the corner from a key bus line and one block from another. There is a small grocery across the street, several veg and fruit stores around the corner along with one of Edinburgh's best fresh fish stores. Larger groceries within minutes' walk. It is not possible to detail all the advantages of the location! The apartment is full of light, spacious, and with all modern conveniences. It is beautifully kept up, the beds are comfortable, and the heating works well, should you need it. Sue is fantastic--a great guide to the city and region as well as wonderfully reliable in regard to the business side. I lived here for a month in September 2015 (the site won't let me go back that far) and could not have been happier. Hoping to go back soon!
The appartment is clean, well looked after, well equipped and well situated. The bus into town is right round the corner and takes 10 minutes to get you to princess street. Walking takes 20 minutes. Could not have asked for anything better. Home away from home.
El apartamento esta en una zona muy bonita, justo frente al parque, por donde caminando llegas al centro en 10 min, un paseo precioso. Espacioso y limpio. También tiene un pequeño supermercado enfrente. Muy Recomendable. Volveremos!!!! nos encanta Escocia!
Thank you for your lovely review. I'm delighted you liked our apartment and found it so convenient. We will look forward to welcoming you back.

Its also the perfect place to play with friends and the family - from frisbee to football, tennis at the Edinburgh Leisure courts where you can hire everything you need, children's swings and multi-activity compounds, or golf on the short 36 hole links, where you can play for free and you need to bring your own clubs.
