Fantastic Place In Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 7 traveling through the UK. The place was perfect! Great access to the downtown area, the castle and the festivals, a nice walk! Easy access to bus which was right outside the place and free parking two blocks over on Pilrig Street! Our only regret is not staying longer! We would stay here again.

Bedrooms were great because they were quiet and the central living area was huge, a great place to congregate! Kitchen had all necessary appliances. Shopping close by and great restaurants on the street!

A great place!

Very spacious apartment.

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is in a great location so that we walked to most of the sites we wanted to see. There are many pubs and restaurants close by so that you can end your day close to home. We had a rental car for trips out of Edinburgh. You can park in front of the apartment in the evening and on weekends for free but the rest of the time we parked on Pilrig Street (half a mile away not 2 blocks as another reviewer described but still an easy walk). The apartment has 4 large bedrooms so that the whole family could spread out well. Peter was easy to work with and returned my security deposit very promptly. He always got right back to us when we needed more internet ( a must when you have 4 children in their 20's). The apartment is very old being in the historic part of town but everything we needed worked well. The carpeting is a bit old and dingy but overall the apartment was clean. We had a terrific trip!

Nice place, good location, owners not so generous!

  • 3 of 5
11 of us were here for a Hen weekend and the apartment was great. I wouldn't call it '4 bedroom' it's 4 bedrooms then a lounge with some sofa beds in. The wifi also doesn't work, but apart from that it's sound. The girl who organised it, didn't realise we had to be out by 10.00 on the last day (yes it did say so in the small print, but these things happen). The cleaners arrived and we were out SUPER quick and very apologetic. The people that arrived were frosty and grumpy, despite the fact we were in their way for all of 10 mins. Then they charged us a sizeable extra fee because of it! Because I rushed out the door so fast (frankly scared of the grumpy folks) I left a dress. I called the cleaning lady who was actually really sweet and said she'd post it to me. I offered to pay and she said that to be honest it didn't cost much and the owner probably wouldn't charge. The next day I got a bill for three times the amount it cost to post it.

Just stingy really. It's a shame when people care more about the pennies than good old fashioned customer service. Leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Shame as it's a nice place.

Owner's Response: This is NOT A TRUE ACCOUNT. I have NEVER. met that person or even talked to her. I am disappointed as we had allowed the group to start their stay earlier than first arranged - for free. I shall address a few points that are blatantly untrue:
1) the Wifi worked before, during and after the guests' stay as verified by other guests. Guests should make sure they use the code written in the guests' handbook.
2) the hire agreement the guests signed states clearly (and not in small print) that check-out time is 10am. At 10:30, the cleaners found guests still IN BED! The guests then sent me a text message asking if they could leave their bags in the apartment until 1:30pm. I texted back that, regrettably, it was not possible as the cleaners needed to prepare the apartment for the next people. The guests texted back that it was "not a problem". They eventually left around 11:15 am, an hour and a quarter after checking-out time! .
3) WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE, the guest contacted the cleaner directly and arranged for her to send on a dress she had left behind. The cleaner asked for payment of her (very reasonable) costs. Whilst we aim to help where we can, additional service requiring ADDITIONAL WORK AND COSTS on the part of the cleaner can NOT be for FREE.
We would like to thank our many guests who have supported us with kind messages and very positive reviews and we will always strive to offer a warm welcome to both returning and new guests.

Great get-away in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic stay in Edinburgh. The flat was beautifully kept, comfy and had plenty of space for all of us.

The location was perfect - the square is quiet, with a lovely grocery nearby. Excellent proximity to Princes St, George St and Carlton Hill.

Peter was a pleasure to contact, tremendous help organising and arranged the stay flawlessly. Big thumbs up!

Many thanks again!

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5
We were two families having a holiday together: 4 adults and 4 teenagers. The most worth seeing places were practically next door and the apartment was very spacious. In the apartment there was space for having a good time together and on the other hand the bedrooms were also big and offered peaceful private area during our joint family holiday - helping everyone keep in good mood… The kitchen was practically equipped (we found even the smallest things we realized a need for). Communication with the owner was prompt and correct.

Big aparment, very close to the centre.

  • 5 of 5
The aparment is for big families (there were 12 of us). Ten minutes walking to the Royal Mile. It is situated at a quite square, with a big garden in front of it. Parking in the street is NOT free, because it is situated in Edinburgh parking zone 6 (1,6 BPD per hour), but it is free beyond 1750h, and all day on saturdays and sundays. Easy to park for this reason in the very door, though. It has TWO bathrooms (one with shower, one with a bath). Eventhough it is on the basement of the building, the apartment is very light. Peter and Liz give us a terrific treatment and everything was as it was planned. Very clean and tidy.To sum up: This flat is worth it
