We stayed in the Fergusson apartment for a long weekend. What a lovely place. It was ideal for us - my husband and I and our 2 adult children - as it has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and 2 bathrooms. Beautiful building, very nicely furnished and well-equipped and a really handy location - it's a short easy walk... More

The glowing posted reviews for these flats are exactly right. We stayed in the Hunter flat, and it was spacious, well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. The location is ideal, and Brian is indeed a gracious and thoughtful host. We'll look to stay here again too.

We were a big family group of 10 so stayed in three of the apartments for 5 nights. The reality is just as good as the website makes them look - very comfortable and spacious and well-equipped. Great location - city centre is easily walkable but good bus connections too, Waitrose 10 minutes away, Botanic gardens not far. Highly recommended.

My sister and I had a few days in Edinburgh to visit family before we had business in London so we stayed three nights at the West End Apartments. My sister stays here frequently and I've been here a couple of times. The place is just wonderful. Very clean, great location, wonderful price. I highly recommend this place anytime you... More

We stayed here for a few nights with my husband and our 4 & 1 year old girls. We stayed in The Hunter apartment, which is on the top floor. The apartment itself is beautiful. Very well decorated and furnished, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The owner is very welcoming, and had supplied not only tea, coffee and sugar,... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in the Hunter apartment, situated on the top floor. The apartment for 2 couples is extremely spacious, especially the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The lounge/kitchen area is also large and has everything you need for a few nights away. The location is excellent, literally a 15 minute maximum walk to... More

In a word, 'Perfect'. We stayed in the Cadell Apartment which was spacious, bright, and spectacularly clean. The bed was the nicest we have slept in away from home, of a very high quality to match the beautiful linens and towels. A lovely gift basket greeted us on arrival with marmalade, croissants, shortbread and after dinner mints! The apartment includes... More

We stayed at the Peploe last weekend and can thoroughly recommend these apartments. Brian the owner is welcoming and considerate and on-hand in an apartment in the building. The apartment was large and spotlessly clean, with everything you could need for a long or short stay. There are lots of stairs to get to the Peploe, but well worth it... More

First time we'd travelled with our little one (aged 17 months) and stayed for a long weekend in the Hunter apartment. It was really well located, the views were fabulous, the rooms were well equipped and furnished and the owner, Brian was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in The Hunter for 6 nights & felt at home the moment we arrived. The apartment is just so clean & bright with natural light. Brian welcomed us & there was a welcome basket with wine, marmalade, shortbread, chocolate, juice, coffee cream & croissants. He explained the ins & outs of the apartment. We never did grasp the...
