“Lovely pad for the Fringe”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented the Blair's apartment for a weekend at the Fringe. Upon arrival Charlie gave us a warm welcome and showed us around. The flat is exactly as pictured, very light and airy with three well-equipped bedrooms. Everything we needed was there, with great takeaways and a tesco superstore in walking distance.
The only thing we underestimated was the distance to the town center, so we ended up spending a fortune on taxis. However, if you are on a leisure trip and have time you can just get the bus right in front of the house.
Wifi wasn't working for us, but everything else was in perfect order!
A very cosy and homely place to come back to.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and although biased we agree that the flat is superb. Taxis can be expensive and as Edinburgh has an award winning bus service which as you said a bus stop is 2 minutes from front door. I would always recommend using the bus. At peak times I estimate a 15 minute bus journey to city centre which I think is pretty good for visiting all the main attractions. Look forward to seeing you next year maybe

“Dont Judge A Book By Its Cover”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

When we first arrived at Blair 2 we were a little concerned about location - above a row of fast food outlets - however when we entered apartment any concerns were dismissed.

The apartment is light, bright and airy with plenty of room for 6 of us. Very clean with good facilities in kitchen - you certainly do not get any "smells" from the restaurants below. Landlord was very helpful, friendly and nothing was to much trouble.

Transport links into town were very good - although they did take a little longer than the 15 minutes intimated, but this could have been because of Fringe/Tattoo traffic.

Our only slight concern is the requirement for either an en-suite or additional bathroom but I understand this is being looked into - dont let put you off tho - its amazing how a rota can work!

All in all a good base to explore Edinburgh and surrounding areas.

“Excellent location and facilities.”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had everything we needed in the apartment to make our stay as easy as possible.
A good kitchen and excellent layout meant that eight of us could remain comfortable.
The bus routes are all there on your doorstep.

“Short Edinburgh Stay”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights while stopping off in Edinburgh for a few days before going down to Centre Parc at Penrith. We met Charles at the apartment and he showed us in and explained everything in detail, all the sights how to get there ect which was a nice start. The apartment was very clean and spacious with 3 bedrooms, very accessible to the zoo and just a short drive away from the city of Edinburgh by car or local bus service. Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends & family and especially to families with young children.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was nicely decorated, very clean and had plenty of room for me and my four friends to relax after a long day walking around the city. It was only a short walk away from the zoo and had great bus links direct into the city within a minute's walk. There was plenty of takeaways, restaurants, pubs and shops within walking distance. Would definitely stay again.
