“Wonderful apartments in the heart of Edinburgh”
Reviewed November 10, 2008

Our St Giles Apartment was simply fantastic. Clean, spacious, modern with all the comforts you need when travelling. The staff were wonderful - they were so helpful. We needed to check in early and this was no problem. The views from the apartment were stunning and the accommodation was bright and airy.

I would thoroughly recommend the apartments if you have children - it is much better value and much less restricting than a hotel.

My second visit to Edinburgh and I booked one of the small apartments but the amount of space was amazing. Huge living room with four big wondows looking out onto St Giles Cathedral and the Royal Mile.
Couldnt have been better!!
The bathroom was very well appointed and from the spacious bedroom I could go out onto the private Patio when it wasnt raining. But it rained alot. The furniture and bedding was luxurious and i loved the L'Occitane toiletries which were complimentary.
Very impressed with the property and the staff who couldnt have been more helpful as well as being great value for money.

Booked a 3 Bed St Giles apartment for a 3 night stay last month and were plesently surprised with what we found!

3 double rooms (1 en suite), 2nd bathroom, good size kithchen and seperate living room. Beds were soooo comfy and showers were great!

To add to this, the location was fab - situated on the royal mile accross from St Giles Cathedral (where you can pick up all the scary graveyard and ghost tours!) Only a 5 mins walk to Grassmarket, where thre is a collection of lively irish pubs and bars! Be warned however, This part of Edinburgh has nothing but steep hills and cobbled streets which just adds to the city's charm but you need to be prepared for exercise!!

Only a couple of small negitives:

We had to walk up 3 flights of steps to get to our 3rd floor apartment and this was a struggle at the best of times! I thanked God that we had not booked the 4th floor apartment! Definatly not for families with small kids, buggies etc.

The main bathroom smelled musty, it has a wooden floor and it is obvious that the surface is being affected by the moisture!

Lastly, the Apartment did not have a bath which i was disappointed with but was not the end of the world!

All in all, good standard, confortable accommodation and 6 of us had plenty of space - would definately stay there again!

Restaurant tip: The Living Room - excellent but you will need to book!
