“Clean,cosy and comfortable”
Reviewed 26 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This two bedroom flat is located very close to the main road through Corstorphine, with many and varied shops nearby .i.e. pubs,grocery store,charity shops and many small individual shops. The one and only drawback we found ,was the access via a fairly steep stair but if you are fitter ( and more able ) than we are , this flat is also very handy for the zoo as it is a few bus stops away. The owners are very contactable and take great pleasure in presenting their flat in the highest standard.

“Lovely hosts in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The hosts were so helpful and easy to work with! We were not traveling with a phone, yet they arranged to meet us and even gave us advice on the easiest way to travel there which really helped.

The flat is cute and comfortable, but in an older building with the quirks that come with that. We enjoyed the extra space a 2 bedroom flat offered us during our stay and took advantage of having a kitchen and a washing machine to use. Those amenities certainly saved us time and and money that we could spend on enjoying Edinburgh.

However, we would not stay here again due to the location. It is a 12 pound cab ride from the train station or airport. It is right between both and close to NO sights. Each day we took the bus into the city center which was convenient and easy to do. However, 3 days of bus fares for our group plus the cost of the cab upon arrival and airport bus at the end really added up! We spent over 60 pounds on traveling to and from this location to the sights. And with the distance involved, we did not go back and rest at our flat then to go out again. Once we took the bus all the way back to the flat, we stayed in for the rest of the night. Our group would have much preferred staying in a hotel room closer to the Royal Mile. We would have seen and experienced even more of this wonderful city.

Thank you for acknowledging how difficult it was to meet you without anyone having a phone and the fact the you had a kitchen and washing machine a big plus when your on a budget like you stated. The flat is quirky but that's whats what you get living in a very old city.Unfortunately you wished you had booked nearer the Royal Mile prices for your stay would have ranged from £500 to £2500. The latter being an apartment with cooking and washing facilities like ours. I don't think this would have been in your budget. With regards to the taxi fare from station you could of got a bus to save money on your tight budget but I can assure you £12 is very reasonable. Unfortunately petrol(gas) in our country is not as cheap as USA. The flat is at most 15 minutes from city centre which considering the vast size of the USA I do not think is a long time to travel. At no point do I ever state there are "sights" close by. However if you had walked down in to old corstorphine you would have found some beautiful buildings dating back to the 12th Century which really are splendid. I think if your on a budget you have to weigh up all the cost involved in a trip to a capital city. With regard to your cost to airport surely no matter where you stayed you would have incurred this expense. Glad to see you enjoyed our beautiful city.

“Great facilities & location.”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Charles was an outstanding landlord. He went above & beyond to make our visit as seamless as possible. Definitely be back. Location is excellent for local amenities & for public transport to see the sights of Edinburgh & to get to/from airport. Beds comfy. Everything you need was in the apartment. Good privacy too.

Great communications, a warm welcome from Charlie, free parking just round the corner. Very well situated with Wetherspoons, cafes, Sainsbury's & numerous shops very close by as well as a bus-stop to get into town - much easier & cheaper than driving in. A homely feel to the flat with good wifi, comfortable beds, sofas, tv/dvd & plenty of kitchen equipment. We'll be back!
