If you are thinking of booking a break here, don't bother. We also purchased a Groupon deal for a two night stay. The first place we were allocated was up a close off The Royal MIle. It was a tiny one bedroomed apartment, door to the close and the flat were not very secure, there was evidence of water damage or damp and a hole in the bedroom door. The cooker hob was filthy and the oven didn't work. The television did not work either but the icing on the cake were the two vermin control boxes we found in the living area. We were moved to a four bedroomed top floor flat in Broughton Street and it was not much better. The bathroom was a disgrace, there wasn't one wine glass in the kitchen, the carpets were covered in stains and cigarette burns, blinds on the windows were filthy and in some of the bedrooms, the clothes hanging space consisted of a wooden palette like construction.
We were also advised of a problem with the bubbly, chocolates and burger bar voucher when we collected the keys and were assured an E-Mail offering compensation was on it's way to us at home - that was at the end of April and needless to say we are still waiting for it to arrive!
We doubt very much if the apartment shown on the website actually exists. Our advice - don't bother and save yourself a lot of disappointment.
