    The appt layout was excellent. Very well furnished and equipped

    Needed information about what to do about parking pass. got info from phone call but would have preferred info in with other welcome info. Didn't know about credit card charge until too late. Would have used debit card otherwise

  • Family with children

    The location is excellent and the building quiet. Perfectly situated for a city break. Close to wonderful Swedish bakery/cafe and handy Tesco Express. Scott the manager was accessible, friendly and helpful.

    Sounds a bit petty but the incredibly creaky bed really spoiled my nights' rest. In general, the furnishings seemed a bit cheap budget and well worn, maybe time for an upgrade. Heated towel rail caked in dust and laundry room needed a good clean though I suppose that's only necessary for long stay guests.

    Location is great, close to the Castle and the High Street. Scott was also really helpful on everything we wanted.

    The staff in concierge wasn't that nice

    Scott was very accomodating (emailing to check everything was ok, did we need anything else, etc) and he had the internet fixed really quickly.

    This is a bit daft, but I wouldve liked there to be salt and pepper in the apartment, it is something that i wouldnt want to buy for a 2 night stay, but we needed it for our food!

    Very easy to find and secure. Even our late arrival was no trouble. Very quiet location so no problems sleeping. Great amenities and shower was excellent. Only 15mins pleasant walk to princess street passing through royal mile within 5 minutes. Overall we couldn't ask for anything more. Perfect!

    Nothing bad.

  • Older travelers

    The location was excellent for visiting Edinburgh city. Only a few minutes walk from National Museum and other tourist attractions. Coffee shops, cafes and restaurants on doorstep and nearby. Flat was clean and stylish. Comfortable bedding. Staff really helpful and most pleasant. On my list for next stay in Edinburgh - better than any hotel room.

    Parking cost £16 per day but that is ncp and after checking out we visited a few places and it cost £25 for 29 hours.

    Wonderful location, beautiful apartment, and fabulous city.

    It took us a while to figure out that there was an induction hob and so only some of the pots worked on it. It would be a good idea to remove the pots and pans that can't be used in the apartment to avoid confusion.

    luxury apartment, central

    kitchen poor, hob so complicated i couldn't work it, work surface no use, no bowls, not practical for use. heating and air conditioning difficult to regulate
