Our second stay at McDonald Road. Spacious apartment. Loads of room for 2 adults & 2 kids. Equipped with everything we needed for a long weekend. Secure parking is helpful. Ditched the car for the weekend. Location is great for access to Edinburgh attractions. Hope to return. more

Management response:

Management response:
