Clean, comfy and modern room with all the amenities. We were in awe. The little touches like the smell of flowers in the reception room makes the place even better. Loved it overall and would recommend this to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Tesco Metro is just around the corner and the bus stop is next to it. Excellent excellent excellent.

I stayed in Merchiston this week for business. I've stayed before and it's always a relief to go back somewhere you know when time is of the essence. I arrived at 7pm. The entrance hall was filled with the smell of the beautiful fresh flowers and felt warm and cosy and welcoming, which was nice as it was -2 outside!...

We had a lovely weekend away. It was a nice modern apartment with good wifi close to a set of quaint shops and restaurants. In fact you could happily spend your days there without going as far as the city centre. It's about 30 mins walk to the city if you are. We chose a walk through the meadows talking...

Beautiful studio apartment with great fittings and a super building. Good local parking for Saturday and Sunday which is free. Easy walking into town or for the Meadows. The only small downside is the top apartment didn't connect to wifi. Not an issue this stay but I'd advise that you contact the agent to ask in case this was just...
