Three of us chose to stay overnight in Edinburgh in an apartment as it was cheaper then renting two rooms at a B&B. Scotia Grand Residence is in a great location - it sits along the meadows, is very close to the University, and is about a 15 minute walk from Waverley train station. The apartment was quiet, clean, comfortable,... More

Great apartment and location. Friendly staff and great value for money. The reason I gave 4 not 5 is that the flat was starting to look a little tired and could have done with some tlc, But that was really only a very minor thing. Got a late checkout to 12 o clock and they even let us leave our... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst on business in Edinburgh. Excellent location, walking distance from Princess Street and Royal Mile. Communication with front of house was excellent. Before, during and even after my stay. Great hospitality! Apartment was very comfortable, enjoyed coming home to it.

Great location and staff! I absolutely loved staying here. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the shower worked well. It also has a couple great places to eat around, I especially liked the Malaysian place down the street. Overall, a great place to stay when visiting the city.

Great location, great accommodation. Have been here before and will definitely use them again. Quiet, secure, really close to cafes and Sainsburys. No need to pack any groceries as everything is on your doorstep.

Apartment was excellant, spacious and would highly recommend. Very Close to Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street 10 mins walk. We had kids with us and was very impressive. They had apartment ready earlier then due time which we appreciated. Can't speak highly enough and we travel quite a bit also.

Stayed here for two nights with my partner and our 6month old daughter over the Christmas/new year period. It was fantastic, would definatly stay again. Great location and the apartments are gorgeous and modern. Only negative we couldn't stay longer! - sorry for leaving baby toast crumbs all over the high chair!
