I stayed here for a night with friends when we went to Edinburgh to explore as I'd never been to Edinburgh before. When we arrived we checked in and we're given a code to park the car in the gated car park which was very secure. Big iron gates and can't get through without the code, then the apartment itself...

I've just come back from a weekend away to Edinburgh with 10 other girls. We wanted a nice apartment, needing to be a decent distance from night life/tourist attractions and we got just that.

Little things let the stay down. Staff very friendly, apartment very clean and well equipped. Beds comfortable. But... Toaster flashed and died. Bottom fridge door tray broken so had to lie open items flat. The one shower wasn't working and we learned later that they already knew about this but didn't inform us. Disappointing as should have otherwise been awarded... More

As a cheaper and more attractive alternative to hotel accommodation I found this choice so much better than a B & B or guest house for my longer stay in Edinburgh. The apartment was tastefully furnished and offered all the 'mod-cons' necessary for a 10 week stay. The rooms were serviced regularly and I had no complaints. Secure parking and... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
