We stayed for a week at the Parkside Apartment, not far from Arthurs Seat which sleeps 6 over 2 floors. From the outside it looks pretty grim and to be fair is better when you get inside. Outside there is a lovely garden but very little, if any, street parking which doesn't cost a fortune.
The house could be lovely, it has obviously not been decorated or looked after for years, the beautiful period fireplace has been boxed in.A lot of things are broken, tired looking and worn out. There is a large kitchen but very little to cook with, we were hoping to entertain family while we were there- not really possible. There is a drawer full of blunt knives- fortunately I had bought 'no peel carrots'! corkscrew was broken, the cooker lid and kitchen bin lid also broken.............
The apartment was clean, there were plenty of toilet rolls, towels and some soft soap, the shower tray was broken.
The beds were not particularly comfortable and the pillows had definitely seen better days.
Home from home? Not for me but probably ok if you are a student..
