We visited these apartments with big expectations, after all they have certificate of excellence. The location was superb, the gentleman who met us was very polite and helpful. The apartment was big and spacious. That was all good. Then we started to notice the furniture not only had seen better days but was dirty, the beds looked like Homer Simpson... More

We were all very pleased we stayed here. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly both before and during our stay. The appartment was elegant, very spacious and spotlessly clean. Facilities were very good. Close to the centre.

Booked this apartment quite late for Ed Fringe season. Despite the timing the price is definitely reasonable. For the Fringe it was only 20 mins walk from the centre of the fringe and located next door to the best breakfast we had for the stay. (also close to a short route up to the top of Arthur's seat, well worth... More

The apartment we stayed in was within walking distance of the Royal Mile. We did not need to get any taxi or bus. It was spacious, cozy and very clean. The kitchen was well furbished. there was also a lovely garden outside. We loved it.

Lots of things that caused a good impression: the reception, the cleaness, the kitchen stuff, the comfort of the bedroom and the living room, the restaurants near the apartment... Lots of reasons to feel like being there again when in Edinburgh next time.

Stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights (Apartment 3). Very spacious (liked the high ceilings), clean and comfortable. Met with Jackie who showed my around the apartment. The location is excellent with lots of shops and places to eat on Newington road. The bedrooms are on the back so the road noise (buses and ambulances) did not bother... More

We had a pleasant and comfortable stay during a long weekend with our children. The apartment 4 we had was great and completely suited our needs. Fully equipped with all household equipment. We didn't had personal contact with the owner, only by phone which is of course a little bit impersonal. All guidelines and information were available on hard copies.... More
