Excellent having two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Apartment was very clean and well serviced. The Bathrooms were very hot and we not able to turn the heating down. The Staff were friendly with easy check-in and check-out. Good secure car parking on site.

Me and 8 others as a group filled 2 Penthouses and 1 apartment and the stay was terrific. Flats were lovely inside and all round great place. Lack of heating controls should be addressed as it was either boiling hot or freezing cold at points. Other than that we had a peaceful and trouble free stay. Comfy beds, lovely size...

Six of us stayed in two apartments, a double/twin and double room, over the New Year holiday. The beds and furniture were comfortable; the rooms were clean and warm; the staff were helpful and obliging. The location is a manageable walk to the castle and Princes Street, though buses to Princes Street were close-by. Good cafes/pubs were within walking distance....

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...

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.
