My entire family (husband, 10 and 17 yr old) loves this place! Absolutely beautiful and impressive juxtaposition of the old (crown molding, huge windows and lovely circular staircase to room) and new (loft bed, compact all-white nook kitchen with EVERYTHING!, and smoked glass bathroom door)- I am super picky about decor, cleanliness and livability, and this apartment gets an A+....

We are a family with children, and had booked an apartment to say in for four nights in Edinburgh. We arrived at the apartment to find out that we had been scammed, and the place was terrible. We panicked and began calling around, trying to find replacement lodging. Luckily we got ahold of Fiona! She had a room open at... More

Gorgeous modern apartments, really perfect base to explore Edinburgh. Five minute walk from the beautiful meadows, loads of lovely cafés and cute little bistros and independent boutiques just down the road. Also a tesco a one minute walk away which was great! You don't need a key they work on a code which is great, no worrying about losing keys!... More

We stayed at Merchiston Residence for 2 nights in July 2014 and had a great time! The apartments are well located. The locality is pleasant and quiet. We had to wait for about 15-20 mins during the check in as the door would just not unlock. It was a bit frustrating since we had a handicapped person with us but... More

I used this property to accommodate myself (plus partner) and two German couples , very old friends of mine, for a reunion weekend over the spring bank holiday. It was perfect for the purpose. I had the largest of the three apartments available. The apartments are furnished for two, but mine with two bedrooms would have been fine for four... More

We have stayed here twice and thoroughly enjoyed each time. The apartments are fully equipped for staying in and in a great location if you want to go out. Everything you need is thought of including DVD's should you need a night in. The apartments themselves are very luxurious and finished to a high standard. I would definitely recommend these.

The Merchiston Residence is perfect for a short break in Edinburgh. Set in a beautiful building with a huge winding staircase, first impressions are something. Apartment was lovely and the one bed was easily big enough for 4 girls (there is a sofabed). There is no reception but you have everything you could possibly need already provided in the room;...

This review is long, long overdue! My colleagues, sister and I stayed at the Merchiston Residence for three weeks last summer to participate in and attend the Edinburgh Fringe. We were a large party of people staying in the two bedroom apartments and yet we felt very well taken care of. Fiona and Julie could not have been nicer or... More

We stayed from Friday night to Tuesday and had a wonderful time! The apartments are in a nice area and very close to it all (without being too close). It's about a 20-30 min walk into the main town but the bus stop is around the corner so after the 1st day of A LOT of walking we thought better... More
