The Merchiston Residence was very nice. Clean, well laid out and it was perfect for our stay in Edinburgh. We would stay here again next time we are in Edinburgh. Good value for the price and close to most attractions in Edinburgh.

We recently stayed at the Merchiston Residence Apartments and would recommend them to anybody who is thinking of a visit to Edinburgh. The apartment was very modern and well equipped. In a quite area and only a short bus ride into the centre of Edinburgh.

Apartment was in a great area of Edinburgh and was very modern . You are given your apartment number before arriving along with a key code which you need to access the building and your apartment so it is very secure. The apartment itself was very modern and stylish with everything you would require during your stay, even down to... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay here very much. Although location is a bit out from the city centre, it is in a pleasant residential area with easy bus access. All day parking (for £4) can be sound a 5 minute stroll away. Apartment 5 wasn't the most spacious but very nicely furnished and cleverly designed - our children loved the... More

A modern, very comfortable self-catering apartment, with daily cleaning service. We really enjoyed our stay. The old city is within a walking distance, there are nice dining options nearby, and the apartment itself was perfect. Highly recommended.

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

Hello there, thank you for your lovely review. As you saw when you stayed, Merchiston works very well for groups as we were able to give you apartments close to each other, and in one section, meaning you and other guests had privacy from each other allowing everyone to enjoy their stay. We hope the wedding is a huge success... 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
