“Very large spacious apartment in quite yet central location”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

The apartment was fabulous, spacious and bright. However the only thing marking it down is that it is not well equipped. There was only one very small saucepan in the apartment. No frying pan and not enough glasses or cups.

There was also not enough cleaning products, just one bottle of washing up liquid and a scrubber. No tea towel, no mop, no brush or hoover which meant that on departure, we could have cleaned the apartment as well as we would have like.

Having explained this to the woman on checkout before somebody was sent to check the apartment, we were told by the person who check the apartment that there was excess cleaning to be done, and we were charged a fine of £25. I didn't feel this was fair as they did not provide us with adequate cleaning equipment.

However, hopefully they will improve on this as I would stay there again but request for cleaning equipment to be sent to the apartment on the day of arrival if there was none.

Reviewed December 14, 2011

We wanted accommodation for a large group in Edinburgh so booked a couple of townhouses. They were perfect for what we needed - they're part of a new development, so very modern. They were clean and spacious, with plenty of room for us all.

The area is under development which may put some people off, so there is a fair bit of building work going on around the townhouses on weekdays, but it didn't disturb us. I can imagine it'll be a great area once the building work is finished. It can also be tricky to get taxis etc to the houses as the street name and postcode are so new, so prepare to give the names of older surrounding streets to avoid the confusion!

It was just a short 15 minute walk into the centre, and there's a local shop a couple of minutes away as well as restaurants and a great cocktail bar just over the canal.

The only negatives I can think of are that they didn't seem to be fully stocked for the maximum of 7 people staying - not quite enough cups/glasses or dining chairs. They could also do with a few minor finishing touches like bedside lights/wall mirror in the large double room and better blinds in some rooms, but overall these were fantastic for us and I'd recommend them.
