Fab! Fab! Fab!
Superb apartment in a stunning location - we loved it!
Great bars, restaurants & shops right on our doorstep.
Fully equipped and spotlessly clean - you have thought of everything - enjoyed the extra touches!
While it seemed that our visit was going great - once I returned from the stay I could not get the deposit returned or an accurate invoice provided. I was on a business trip with 2 other colleagues in Europe for a week and we opted to spend the weekend in Scotland. Edinburgh is a beautiful amazing town. All of the people were very nice and helpful with the exception of the owners of this flat. Right off the bat we were over charged by £100. It has been a full month and the owner is no longer responsive via email and not providing a refund to meet the actual agreed price nor refund the deposit. Don't stay here - you may lose money! Additionally the flat is clean and I would say average - the location is great, but not if you have a car. Street parking is not convenient. Don't be fooled by the pictures - It is not that modern and the pictures were taken with full light to make it look brighter and bigger. The beds are very uncomfortable and need to be updated. I am not sure if the service has gone down in the last year, but I did not have the same positive experience as others.
As all the other reviewers have noted, the apartment was beautiful, perfectly located for easy access to both the Old and New Town sides of the city and managed by lovely people. Both Pat and Martin were extremely kind, helpful and beyond accommodating (it was so nice to be able to drop the baggage off early and not lug it up to the castle). The apartment was a wonderful size to allow plenty of private and group space for 4 adult women - and the 3 separate baths made mornings much easier and quicker!
The apartment was fantastic - thank you Pat and Martin! I'll definitely be returning soon.
From the moment we inquired about the apartment Pat was an A-1 host! She answered my many emails with my questions promptly and was very kind as to make suggestions for activities and restaurants, as well as accommodating our early arrival. Pat's son, Martin, was at the apartment when we arrived to drop our bags. He was still finishing with the final cleaning details but was a dear and quickly gave us a tour and overview and showed us the necessary items, such as the TV and washers, before we went on our way to let him finish. The apartment was immaculate and exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for our family of four. The apartment was rather spacious and bright with all the amenities of a home away from home, right down to the hair dryer and iron! We couldn't have been more pleased. Pat even provided a nice welcome package which included bread, butter, and wine, which was so sweet and very much appreciated given that we had been shuffling around for hours due to an extra early arrival. The location of the apartment is stellar and is right near several restaurants, bars, shops, and even a corner store for quick snacks and drinks. We walked a lot but noted taxis were abundant and very easy to find. We enjoyed staying out late and bar hopping and always felt very safe in this neighborhood. One thing also, which highly impressed us, was that Pat had a "house binder" at the apartment which was full of appliance manuals as well as a list for restaurants, bars, area specifics, and emergency contact information. This was beyond helpful as we had never been to Edinburgh, nor have we rented an apartment. Thank you, Pat, for going above and beyond and being so organized! I only wish we could have stayed longer. I would highly recommend this apartment to all! Thanks again to Pat (and Martin) for making our trip outstanding!!
6 of us celebrating big birthdays in Edinburgh, this apartment was perfectly located and really well appointed to make the most of it. We arrived early and were met by our cheery host Martin and were able to leave our bags until the afternoon. Our hosts had had kindly left a great welcome pack and some really useful recommendations including eating at the Honours just across the road - an amazing (Michelin starred to be) restaurant from local acclaimed chef Martin Wishart.
We had a great long weekend in this home from home, within easy walking distance the city. Located just off George street it was the best of both worlds - a refuge from the hustle and bustle but a stone's throw from great bars, restaurants, shops and cultural delights.
We had a late train home on the Sunday and Martin kindly arranged a later check out to make our stay even more relaxed and convenient.
We'll definitely be back!
The property was immaculate had everything a group of six women could need. Would definitely recommend this. Customer service was spot on nothing was too much trouble. Hope to return next year.
Three active couples, all in our mid sixties, stayed for a delightful four nights in this lovely apartment. Everything, from payment, to location, to check-in was flawless. The flat is equipped with three comfortables beds (zipped to king size), three bathrooms, (two ensuite and one just a few feet away from third bedroom), a very well equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge and dining room. Our evenings were spent playing cards and sipping wine, while our days were full of walking. The location was just astounding, go outside...look to the left and there's the castle!
Pubs, restaurants and grocery shopping were all within walking distance. A welcome package of a few staples was greatly appreciated.
I'd go back tomorrow if only I could!
