My wife and I have been fortunate to stay in several of the lovely hotels in Edinburgh but this has been our best experience by far. Excellent apartments, great attention to detail, lovely, quiet location, attentive staff and very competitively priced. We plan to return. Thankyou

We stayed for a family birthday. We had a really great apartment with two bedrooms and an extra bed. The staff were delightful and helpful. It was a lovely place to stay. We would most certainly go back.

Don't stay anywhere else in Edinburgh!! The staff were amazing, the apartment was fabulous and the location is within walking distance of everything. Stayed as a gift from our son for our anniversary and the greetings card and complimentary fizz were much appreciated. Would recommend to everyone.
