You will find a comfy 2-seater sofa, perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring, a cosy armchair, a convenient coffee table, and a smart TV to keep you company. The sofa in the living room also converts into a double bed, suitable for up to 2 adults.
The modern and fully equipped kitchen has all the necessary appliances to surprise your dearest ones with your stellar cooking skills, such as a double oven/microwave combination, hobs, fridge/freezer, extractor fan, kettle, toaster, cooking basics, and silverware.
Once you are done with preparing your home-cooked masterpiece, gather everyone around the table, look out onto the historic George Street, and share a joyful moment together. Four guests can sit comfortably.

The bathroom is fitted with an enclosed shower, a sink and a toilet. Bathroom essentials, a hairdryer, and towels are provided. Please note the shower uses an electric boiler, so the flow rate may be lower than expected.
