My friends and I stayed at this apartment this weekend. The apartment was fantastic, large and very clean and comfortable. It was well equipped and only a short walk to the city. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Arrived here to stay for 3 nights Aug 2015. Basically could not believe how amazing the place was. It was like Fort Knox with keys and coded doors which is brilliant it was so safe and secure.. the lobby, stairs, corridors and rooftop terrace were all in excellent condition, so clean!
the apartment itself was so good.. CLEAN, FRESH, WARM. EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
Milk, bread, butter, teabags, orange juice... So welcoming!

Very close to city centre! Great quiet area. Dominos was on the corner! We ate pizza for dinner every evening even though we had everything in the kitchen we would have needed for a banquet. ALL CUTLERY ETC WAS PRISTINE!

FRIDGE/FREEZER/WASHING MACHINE/DISHWASHER/DRYER .... all really good quality and in perfect working order!
UNLIKE MOST self catering accommodation there WAS cleaning equipment/washing powder/dish washer tablets etc...

WIFI ACTUALLY WORKED!!!! We had 8 phones running off the wifi which was brilliant !!
All beds were super comfy, so fresh and clean..

ALL in all the place was absolutely fab I would LOVE to go back again....

BEVERLEY: Was amazing during the whole booking process ...
AUDREY: Is so so nice....!! So welcoming and kind... SHE KEEPS EVERWHERE SPOTLESS .. fair play to her she does her job exceptionally well...

Oh and there was IPOD DOCKING STATIONS in all the bedrooms! Like seriously THAT is what you call luxury.. I didn't want to go home!

The pool etc was fabulous!!!

I could write about it all day long!

Bottom line: TOP QUALITY!

“Not as expected”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Not the cleanest of places, looking very tired, needs a good clean/ freshening up. Certainly not what we were expecting. Be prepared for a long wait for your bond back.

Had a really nice stay here in June. It's great in terms of location to the tram and other public transport and easy to find. The flat is lovely, spacious and very welcoming. Thank you to Beverly and Audrey for a lovely stay

“Great apartment but limited parking”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Spent a weekend here with family and friends for a hen party and found the accommodation perfect for our group. Clean, tidy, nicely decorated with all the facilities we expected. Great location, perfect for access to central Edinburgh on foot, by bus, tram or taxi. Only downside was the parking as we travelled in two separate vehicles from different parts of the country and despite being assured by Beverley that getting an additional space would be no problem, the woman who did the key handover was reluctant to allocate another space and seemed a bit peeved that Beverley had told us that a second car could be accommodated no problem. That said, the apartment itself with the on-site swimming pool and spa more than compensated for the slightly disagreeable start to our stay. Beverley was extremely helpful in the run up to our stay and was only too willing to answer any queries we had. We would have rated this 5 star were it not for the mix up over parking.
