“Great location with garage”
Reviewed 4 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Arrival process and checking in was easy - Dave showed us the apartment and talked us through how things work.
Situation of apartment was as we expected - we have stayed in a number of "mews" properties in New Town. The garage was large and easy to park in.
The local restaurants are excellent, varied and so close - although booking is recommended for most of them!
As with other travelers the decoration and sofa's are a bit tired and could do with refreshing (hence 4 not 5), but the apartment was still comfortable, with good heating and plenty of hot water.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It has been acknowledged previously that the fitting of the property are getting a little tired and this is going to be addressed. However I categorically refute that the apartment was dirty and that there were "roaches" these type infestations are not an issue in Scotland. The windows can be opened and there is certainly not any tape on the sofas covering rips and these comments would indicate there is perhaps a little embellishment of the experience at this property.

“Great location near everything in the new town”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Happy with the location and self-catering facilities although it is now looking rather tired. Could do with a refurb - fresh paint, carpet cleaned and sofa replaced. Plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants in the immediate location and always got the taxi to drop us off at Thistle Street bar to finish off the night with a wee dram then back to the apartment just around the corner

“Really disappointed”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I took the apartment with family based very much on the location and the photographs. It was booked for a week during the Festival and as such was very expensive. Sadly the apartment is looking very tired and in need of some love and attention. Not what you would expect either based on the photographs or the price. The downstairs entrance (and there was a bedroom adjacent) spelt of a cat having enjoyed the area a little too much. The furniture had seen better days - marks on the settee. There were scuffs and marks throughout on the paint work and I was really sadly disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the Thistle St Lane. The property has had a very busy season with many guest coming and going, many pieces of luggage being taken in and out has been detrimental to the paint work & walls. Some furniture is also now requiring to be replaced and will be addressed for the new year.

“Great location, but rather tired”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This property is in the perfect location to enjoy the festival and was close to so many things. It is close to St Andrews Square if coming from the airport by tram and it is no more than 20 minutes walk from most of the main venues.
The property is located in a mews area behind shops and restaurants so there can be some noise from bottles being put out late at night. The area is very safe.
The proper was of a decent size for our party of 4, with two decent sizes bedrooms and a large lounge/dinner.
The things that let it down were small but when you are spending 2000 pounds plus for the stay are vital. The property is in need of a decorative refresh and some new quality furniture as it felt a bit like a student flat. The couch had a rip in the seat, bar stool broken and many of the glasses had chips in them. Some new quality furniture would really make this a home away from home. The downstair ensuite shower room could do with a make over, sealant around the shower etc. They also need to ensure that the place is properly cleaned, large amounts of fluff behind the beds furniture etc.
WiFi was decent and usable.
With a little TLC this could be one of the best properties in Edinburgh
