“Beautiful, well presented apartment!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at James Square apartment with my family in July and we all had an absolutely fabulous time. The apartment is exceptionally clean and extremely well presented. You could truly call it a 'home from home' as your every need is catered for.
We have a small baby and the owners John & Beverly did everything they could to ensure we didn't have to take unneccessary items from home such as travel cot and high chair for his use.
The apartment block is safe and secure and in a good location. All of the major sights are within a walk/bus/tram or short car journey away. The transport links are all on your doorstep and we managed to see everything we had planned to on our trip.
The tram from the airport takes you straight to Haymarket and the apartment is just a short walk from the stop.
This apartment was a 'lucky find' & we were so pleased to have had the pleasure of staying here.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we would definately recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in Edinburgh.
Hopefully, one day, not too far away - 'We'll be back'

“Lovely apartment close to all the main attractions in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely apartment, stayed with a group of friends in July. The rooms were clean and bright. The apartment is close to the central attractions, a short walk or bus ride away. A local convenience store is also just a stone's throw away, which is very handy! We had a lovely stay.

“Lovely place to stay!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Me and a group of 6 friends stayed here this weekend. What can I say, from the booking process, to checking in, staying there and leaving everything was spot on and the owners were very helpful throughout. Thank you!

The apartment is lovely, a true home from home and my friends were very impressed too, we didn't want to leave! Would definitely stay here with a group again, so much better and more to offer than a hotel or guest house ever could. The rooftop terrace is lovely and the views across the city are amazing.

On a practical level it's definitely a taxi or tram ride from Waverley station with your bags although we did walk back from Princes street on Saturday afternoon and it's a pleasant 25 minute walk at a slowish pace. Haymarket station is a 10 minute walk away.

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a fantastic weekend break at this apartment. The location is great - very central, easy walking distance from Haymarket train station and walking distance from Princes St/castle etc. The apartment was very clean with good amenities. It is a lovely looking apartment too.We had one wheelchair user amongst the group - you can get access through the car park shutter and there is a lift up to the apartment; most of the apartment is on one level but there is a tiny step down into the bathrooms which made complete access just slightly restricted but other than this it was really good. The service was very good - there was someone to meet us with the key and I had very good, prompt and helpful communication with the owner too. I would thoroughly recommend for a week/weekend away in Edinburgh.

“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in November 2013

Stayed in no.11 and had a pleasant stay. Was rugby weekend but wasn't disturbed by noise the whole time. Apartment very pleasant all the amenities necessary. Pool was very handy with two youngsters but very cold and having a people drinking in the pool area is not that great a view. The next morning there were towels in the pool, empty beer bottles in and around the pool so altogether not the best advertisement, but still handy to have a pool. Secure parking handy as well. Well placed for Murryfield and good links to the centre.
