Just back from a couple of days in Edinburgh with our 2 children (aged 7 and 5). We chose these apartments as they were a similar price to some 'budget' hotels and offered far more space. Also free parking on site, which would have cost approx. £15 per day had we stayed in a city centre hotel.
We arrived about an hour early and the friendly man on reception advised that our apartment wasn't quite ready yet. Hung about until 2pm and were then given the keys to apartment 20 in block 7. It was a very nice apartment, with views over the Firth of Forth. Housekeeping had obviously just finished cleaning as the floors had been mopped and were still a bit wet (nice to see that they had been cleaned as I'm sure many places don't bother!). The apartment had a spacious master bedroom with a huge bed (2 singles joined together), good storage and an en suite shower. The other bedroom was also made up as a double but was a good bit smaller. The open plan living room/kitchen/diner was a decent size and had everything we needed for a few days away, although don't think I would want to rely on the kitchen facilities for cooking any meals. We bought a few things from the nearby Asda (10 minute walk) and had breakfast in the apartment each day before heading out. It was ideal for this. The furnishings/kitchen equipment are ok, although a bit 'cheap and flimsy' so probably won't wear well. But then what can you expect when you pay £82.50 per night? The apartment was clean, spacious, warm (wall-heaters that we had to switch off as too warm) and within reasonable distance of the city centre attractions. We took the number 10 bus into town a couple of times and it cost about £4.40 single for all 4 of us and took about 20 mins. The only negatives were that the wifi signal not great, which wasn't ideal as my husband wanted to access work emails and they took ages to download. Also, we were only given 3 bath towels and, despite asking reception twice for another towel, we never got one. My husband made do with a couple of hand towels instead. All said, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning to these apartments.
