I travelled here with my two children (7 & 3) for a 5 night stay. I had booked a one-bedroom apartment with a sofa bed but we ended up in a two- bedroom (no 17) which was a bonus. The accommodation was easy to find from the information texted to me by Angela (the owner) and it was very quick to heat up once in the property (just what we needed on a chilly March night)
We arrived very late in the evening but had managed to get some provisions to keep us going. However, there was already some fresh milk in the fridge for us and we could have purchased some other bits and pieces to use until we were able to go to the large Morrisons store that is a mere 2 minute walk away.
The accommodation itself was very spacious, spotlessly clean ( I usually feel the need to wash cutlery, cups, plates, etc., when I stay in self-catering accommodation but I did not find it necessary at all here), and had absolutely everything I needed for a comfortable stay. There was a washing machine and a drying frame to use and even a small, enclosed patio area out the back where I could have dried my washing if the weather had been nicer (unfortunately, we had snow but that's Aberdeen in March for you). An iPod docking (and charging) station was an added bonus. The bathroom was lovely with plenty of fluffy towels (large in size too) and the shower was nice and powerful!
Angela was very helpful and on hand to answer any queries I may have had about the accommodation. There was a designated parking space too right outside the flat and ample guest space, if required.
I would certainly not hesitate in booking at the Magellan again in the future and price-wise it was significantly better value than any other luxury, serviced apartments I had looked at before booking (significantly!!)
