“Great location ...”
Reviewed 14 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This was our 3rd visit to Edinburgh and Tolbooth is by far the best place we've stayed at ... the location was very convenient and the layout and furnishing of the apartment was great ... parking in this part of Edinburgh is precious!

“Nice apartment,”
Reviewed 8 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Pros: Nice warm apartment, close to the Royal Mile. good facilities, especially the full kitchen, including dishwasher and washing machine. Comfy bed and spacious living room.
Cons: 4 or 5 vans parked outside the apartment window every morning. Most of the TV channels did not work, or poor reception. Don't like having to pay 200 pounds as security deposit. Not returned until 5 days after check out. Should just keep credit card details until day of check out. Need more info about 'housekeeping' keys, rubbish etc in the info folder.

Thank you for finding the time to leave a review for the property and there were many aspects that you enjoyed. Unfortunately I cannot provide an explanation for the vans, perhaps somebody was moving? We have actually moved to a automatic 2 day return for security deposits quite recently, this booking must have been made prior to this. Items such as keys, rubbish are typically covered at the "meet and greet" at the start of the booking. Regards, Glenn Ford ESC Ltd

“Good location, clean and pleasant flat”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Flat was fine for 3 of us and a good location to get out to the sights. Secure parking was a bonus. Well equipped and looked after accommodation.

“Well equipped and comfortable if a bit small for more than 2”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here with my wife and adult daughter for last week of Fringe. Convenient but quiet location in fairly new development. Comfortable and clean.
As mentioned by others, blinds or similar would be desirable to improve privacy.
Personal greeting is a nice touch, as is the complimentary tea, coffee and milk.
Plenty of bars and restaurants in the area but food shops are few and far in this part of Edinburgh.
WiFi internet access was a bit unreliable during our stay (possibly due to very high demand at the time of year).
Booking and subsequent communication was excellent.
We traveled by train (easy walk from station) but included parking would be a boon if you did come by car.

“Cosy apartment in the heart of the city”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It is located 50 m from Royal Mile, yet in quite silent area. Nice greenery seen through windows. Well equiped kitchen. High speed and stable WiFi connection. Very convenient private car park in the basement. Perfect for a several day visit to the city. But one should remember that the apartment is relatively small - it's rather for 2 people.
