“A fabulous stay in a great location”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We recently enjoyed a long weekend stay in Thistle St Lane and were really happy with our choice of accommodation. The apartment was ideally located for exploring central Edinburgh whilst also being in a quiet back street location. The apartment is spacious and well equipped and was clean and tidy throughout. The booking arrangements and related information / communication were also excellent. We would definitely be happy to make a return visit.

We were REALLY impressed with this property. Perfect for all our needs: 1) to spend quality time together as a family instead of 2 hotel rooms; 2) luxury living in the heart of the city. We couldn't believe how peaceful it was inside, and this delightful property is exactly as shown in the photographs. We loved it and will be back!

“Spacious apartment in a great location with a large garage”

We have felt really good. We were six people. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. There are next to the dishwasher and the washing machine is even a drying rack and an iron. The landlord wants to make your stay pleasant one. The proximity to the city center is awesome. Good restaurants are also found nearby, from snacks to vegan restaurant and pubs. In the garage fit without problems even our Mercedes Vito Van. We would come back again and again gladly.

“Great Place and Close to Everything”

The apartment is in a fabulous location. You can walk to tons of shopping, restaurants and local attractions. The apartment itself is very spacious and open. The alleyway can get a little loud during the evenings when the restaurants are open but it wasn't too bad. I would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone!

“Good value for money considering the attractions nearby”

GREAT LOCATION FOR EDINBURGH LOVERS :

The access to the property looks doubtful at the first time because it's a sort of service lane for restaurants but once you're settled you realise the ease of access to everything that Edinburgh has to offer, almost everything on the top must do list is within walking distance, for everything else the bus stops are very conveniently located.

Amenities :

Adequate and neatly placed.

Living rooms is a big plus, the open plan seating alongwith the kitchen really makes it feel like a home.

Linen and utensils are sufficient and clean.

The only thing needing attention from the agency is carpeting and a touch of paint, evreything else is just fine.

Thanks to Dave Stewart to come over at a short notice to hand the keys over.

“Walk everywhere!”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This terrific property is located just a block off of George Street and a convenient walk to just about anywhere you would want to go in Edinburgh. The property was clean, well furnished, and perfect for our family of five. Kitchen and living area are nice.

“Great central location, amazingly quiet but in need of a lick of paint”

The apartment is 5 mins from Waverly Station in a lane behind George Street. Location couldn't be better and we were amazed how quiet it was with the exception of the recycling lorry visits! The apartment was easy to use and spacious for 4. We asked for the fold down bed as well, which comfortably slept 1 adult. The apartment was spotless and had all the basics required. The only down side was that the apartment is in need of freshening up. The walls were quite badly marked and the flooring was looking a little threadbare. A coat of paint would definitely make it very good rather than average. £200 safety deposit was required, but was promptly credited the following week.

Very please to hear you enjoyed the property and it's amazing location.
