      The modern appartment and its size was just what a group of 4 girls needed! well worth it!

      nothing i didnt like just would add mirrors!!

    • Family with children

      We liked the location, deco, modern style, layout. We have stayed in Edinburgh many times (hotels and apartments) and this is definitely the best place we have stayed in.

      Bed is a bit small and it could be more comfortable.

    • Family with children

      nice and modern apartment in typical scottland residence

    • Family with children

      The apartment was very clean, the decor is lovely, and the kitchen was well equipped. We had a great stay and found the location convenient.

    • Group of friends

      It had everything we needed and more, decor was lovely and we are all waiting for a reason to go back.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      The staff we met were pleasant, informative and helpful. The rooms were well equipped, although too small to be advertised as accommodation for four.

      The lack of baths in the bathrooms is a monumental error. Women prefer to bathe not shower, particularly after a long drive or days sightseeing. The apartment we were in was on the top floor and access was very difficult for me personally. Our son's apartment, on the ground floor, was not a better option as it required considerable agility to climb the three foot high platform to get onto it. Moreover, the bed base had a very unpleasant stain on it.

      Lovely apartment located in quiet environment. Staff were very helpful and responsive to our request. Would definitely choose this apartment again should we visit Edinburgh again in the future.

    • Group of friends

      Very good location and facilities in the apartment were very good. They were ideal for our weekend stay.

      No lock on the bathroom door so only a problem if you didn't know the people you were sharing with very well.

      Excellent location, very modern,clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The appartment was very welcoming and had everything you need. We will definitely be staying again!.

      Nothing to dislike!!

    • Family with children
      10.0

      We had a lovely stay. 2 adults and 2 teenage children - plenty of space. The room was on the lower ground, but there was still plenty of natural light. It was spotlessly clean throughout and the cleaning staff came in every day. The appliances were modern and new, right down to the cutlery. There was no need to carry keys around with you as the lock was electronic and all you needed was a code to open it. We used the fold away sofa which was easy to open and pack away. The bed was comfy too! The local area is very nice with a variety of different places to eat out. There are decent takeaways within walking distance and a Tesco Express only a few minutes walk away. Would recommend!

      Smoke alarm was a bit sensitive!
