This is a lovely,clean, well equipped apartment. It is on the 2nd floor, but the lift is good. We spent one evening on the 4th floor outside terrace with excellent views over Edinburgh & beyond!
The apartment is in a perfect position very near Haymarket station. There are plenty of very good restaurants within easy walking distance.
We arrived at the apartment early & it wasn't ready, but Audrey welcomed us & let us leave our bags inside which was very helpful.
The only issues we had was the intermittant TV signal, but that wasn't a big problem as we were out most of the time
Booked this apartment for a family get-away for the Fringe. A nice apartment on the whole but some significant issues that need to be fixed before we would even consider recommending this apartment to anyone else, particularly given the high price-tag.
1) Front door key code lock is broken - it turns out one of the buttons is broken requiring some serious force and many, many attempts before we could get the door open. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
2) The plumbing is in dire need of work. Not only is it noisy (including the bathroom fans) but from the second day of our trip we had no hot water running from the taps. A plumber came to check and declared it fixed but to no avail - we experienced ongoing issues with it.
3) The door in the small 4th bedroom (which has no windows and is essentially a converted utility room) jams. This meant that if you close the door there is no capability to open unless someone comes to get you out! After much banging of the door in the early morning to get out I was eventually freed - thank goodness the kids weren't staying in this room.
4) The circuit breaker tripped which meant no lights in the ill-fated 4th bedroom (so yes I was trapped AND in the dark) or in the kitchen. Suggest checking.
5) No instructions for any of the appliances and the TV aerial is broken.
9 of us stayed here over the Easter hols. Lovely apartment with plenty of space, equipment & towels. The kids loved the use of the pool which they had to themselves most of the time. Dominoes and Co-op at the end of the road was handy and only 5mins walk from Haymarket Station. Would definitely recommend
This was the perfect stay for our group!
Travelling for a long weekend with 9 adults and 3 children (aged 4, aged 2, aged 7months).
The location was ideal whether we were walking or taking a cab after a long day. Walking to the main shopping street took about 35minutes and taking a cab about 5/8 minutes.
The apartment was EXTREMELY clean and we even got the basics ready for our arrival such as bread, juice, tea. Attention to detail was brilliant. Even down to providing washing up liquid and washing machine fabric softner and powder! I normally pack all these essentials but it was nice that it was already there!
The rooms were extremely spacious - we had myself, my husband and two travel cots in one room and still had plenty of space to move around.
The apartment was very secure - even getting in the pool required keys! Perfect when you have kids. The pool itself was lovely and warm and both times we went in, we had it to ourselves which was brilliant. There was showering and changing facilities by the pool which was handy too.
Beverley was so good with contacting and answering any questions before hand which made me feel more at ease.
The ONLY thing we found as a negative was the washing machine and dryer were both loud and the dryer didnt work properly. However there was a long clothes rack so we put them on there instead. On the grand scale of things it was minor but for future travellers, I would recommend either putting them on when you are out for the day or avoid washing a full load of clothes!
We had a brilliant time and would recommend this place to anyone!!!
My friends and I stayed at this apartment this weekend. The apartment was fantastic, large and very clean and comfortable. It was well equipped and only a short walk to the city. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
Arrived here to stay for 3 nights Aug 2015. Basically could not believe how amazing the place was. It was like Fort Knox with keys and coded doors which is brilliant it was so safe and secure.. the lobby, stairs, corridors and rooftop terrace were all in excellent condition, so clean!
the apartment itself was so good.. CLEAN, FRESH, WARM. EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
Milk, bread, butter, teabags, orange juice... So welcoming!
Very close to city centre! Great quiet area. Dominos was on the corner! We ate pizza for dinner every evening even though we had everything in the kitchen we would have needed for a banquet. ALL CUTLERY ETC WAS PRISTINE!
FRIDGE/FREEZER/WASHING MACHINE/DISHWASHER/DRYER .... all really good quality and in perfect working order!
UNLIKE MOST self catering accommodation there WAS cleaning equipment/washing powder/dish washer tablets etc...
WIFI ACTUALLY WORKED!!!! We had 8 phones running off the wifi which was brilliant !!
All beds were super comfy, so fresh and clean..
ALL in all the place was absolutely fab I would LOVE to go back again....
BEVERLEY: Was amazing during the whole booking process ...
AUDREY: Is so so nice....!! So welcoming and kind... SHE KEEPS EVERWHERE SPOTLESS .. fair play to her she does her job exceptionally well...
Oh and there was IPOD DOCKING STATIONS in all the bedrooms! Like seriously THAT is what you call luxury.. I didn't want to go home!
The pool etc was fabulous!!!
I could write about it all day long!
Bottom line: TOP QUALITY!
