“Great location, simple booking and easy key collection”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

The flat was as advertised and in a great central location that I knew as I had previously owned a flat in Websters Land. The key collection and entire booking process was simple and the attention of the staff in ensuring I arrived and was satisfied was excellent. Unfortunately the interior of the flat is a little tired and the carpet was dirty and stained. Some of the kitchen utensils were broken. Nevertheless the kitchen is very well equipped.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay, it is much appreciated. Every year we undertake a serious of upgrades to the flat, and I can confirm it was redecorated back in March 2014, carpets cleaned, new curtains and bedding purchased, etc. It is a very busy property and therefore may have some wear and tear however I'd be most grateful if you could contact us at: contact@tspropertyservices.com so that we can discuss your feedback further. It is very important to us that the property is kept up to a good standard.

“Great flat in a very central location.”
Reviewed 16 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The flat was lovely with everything we needed for a few nights stay. It was very easy to find the flat and the key access was superb as saved hanging around for someone to meet us. The location was ideal for us as we were moving around various areas in Edinburgh meeting up with my daughter who is at University in Edinburgh and just doing some general sightseeing, Taxis were readily available just down from the flat and other areas were within walking distance. Lots of local bars, restaurants and shops etc in this area too meant we didn't have to go too far to find good food etc. Hoping to book the flat again over the next few months for another few days break.

“Lovely flat just a shame about the noise on a night”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lovely flat in a very central location with everything you would need and more. Just a shame that we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night and could hear loud music from the bars and clubs nearby until 2am.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. Castle View Apartment is right in the heart of the city centre looking directly onto Edinburgh Castle. It's ideal if you want to be close to everything and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this beautiful city. We so pleased you loved the accommodation and thought it was really well equipped. We hope you will consider us again in future. For a quieter break we've also got a lovely selection of properties available in the picturesque coastal villages of Fife or stunning Perthshire, to name but a few so can offer a real contrast of what Scotland has to offer. Thanks again for your feedback.

Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great location within walking distance to the Grassmarket and West Port. Not a lot of work area to spread out papers and a laptop. There was a folding 4 seat dining set but it wasn't comfortable for long periods of time. The wardrobe was so full of children's stuff and a cot as to be unusable for hanging clothes. Overall a good place sleep and get quick meals with good access to everything. Access was through an entry code and key lock code emailed to us before arriving so we never had contact with anyone during our stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We're glad you found the location and the accommodation itself good but are sorry to hear to found the dining table uncomfortable. Due to limited space, we opted for the folding 'butterfly' dining set as it can then be folded down when not in use giving much more space within the living area. We will of course take on board your comments when next reviewing the furnishings. With regards to contact during your stay, we have found over the years that most guests booking a self-catering property want to just arrive and settle in at their own leisure and we therefore installed a key safe for that reason. We do, of course, provide our contact details should there be anything we can help with during the stay. We hope you will consider us again in the future. Thank you again for your feedback.
