We stayed here for 2 nights as we were at a wedding in the area. The apartment was a good size for me, my husband and daughter. We even had an outside area to sit. There was lots of shops just outside but the royalmile is only a short walk away. The downside is the parking which cost us a... More

The apartments are located about a 15 minute bus ride from the center of Edinburgh and a 20 minute walk from Edinburgh University. We stayed here with a large group. Arriving late in the evening we were greeted by the management who kindly helped us finding our rooms. Due to a miscommunication however between our organization and management the distribution...

The apartment was great. it had all we needed. It was not to far from the city sentre. You will also find what ever you need right outside the door. The bus stops right out side the apartment, and if you choose to take a taxi from the city sentre it will only cost you under £10. When we arrived... More

Great amenities and comfortable. we had booked a one bedroom appt but they upgraded us to a 3 bedroom which gave us loads more space. despite being on a busy road it was very quiet, as the appt is set back behind some shopfronts. a surprisingly nice place to be. very handy for Pollock (Uni halls of residence) and plenty...

Although situated on a main arterial road to the city centre, due to the apartment being set behind a row of shops, the noise was negligible. Very comfortable, spacious, clean, good facilities. Frequent buses to Centre. Downside parking!

We are just back from a two night stay in these apartments. The level of service received was excellent from start to finish. We received an email after booking to ask us how we would like the rooms set out (twin or double) as well as being given directions to the nearest 24 hour car park. The gentleman who greeted...

Surprisingly quiet flat in excellent location, about 1m south of the Royal Mile. Perfect base for climbing to Arthur's Seat and everything else I wanted to do in Edinburgh. Clean, welcoming, comfortably furnished and well laid out.
