“An Exceptional Find”
Reviewed February 6, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

A rugby international weekend is normally an expensive weekend away when booking city centre accommodation. My usual hotel wanted over £400 a night for a double room so for five of us to pay less than £40 a night for what I consider to be superior to hotel accomodation was an exceptional find. All the amenities and more were provided for with the added bonus of complimentary secure car parking,free wifi and stunning views over Dean Village and the River Leith. The birds and wildlife provided much entertainment.Look out for the Dippers,little birds that swim under water.
The apartment was spacious,light and airy,two double rooms and a single,five grown ups had plenty of space to move around.The provision of three bathrooms was appreciated and plenty of hot water too for baths and showers.
Kitchen cupboards were well stocked with cooking utensils,glassware and crockery.Tea,coffee,condiments were provided, probably left by prevoius occupants which was a nice touch to get us started.We hope our tin of beans and tea bags will be enjoyed by the next guests.
My kingsize bed with memory foam mattress was a welcome site after a long day sampling Edinburgh's finest hostelries and so peaceful and yet only a few minutes walk from the bustling Princess,Rose and George streets of the Capital City.
I am a regular visitor to the city and I have been extremely impressed with the standards of service and accomodation provided by the Edinburgh Holiday Accomodation Company who manage this property. Well done Anabel and Sally for our very positive stay.

“Great service, fantastic location, but dirty interior detracts from stay.”

I have to say first that the service provided by Sally and Annabelle was terrific. They were very accommodating and were a pleasure to work with throughout the rental process. We were initially thrilled when we got into the townhouse because it was more spacious that we're used to, and we've rented apartments in the past throughout France and Italy. But once we were settled we noticed that the carpeting was absolutely filthy. It had stains all over, upstairs and down. I'll bet it hasn't been shampooed in many, many years. The placemats were also left dirty. Lights were out even though we saw Annabelle replacing some when she checked us in. As more lights blew, we realized that this was probably an electrical issue that needs to be addressed. The door to the balcony was stuck so tight that my husband managed to open it only once. It was just too much trouble. The furniture has seen far better days. This is really a shame because the place is in the perfect location and has so much potential! With a good cleaning, and some added amenities (like instructions for appliances because I never did get the dryer to work!) I'd recommend this townhouse and this service to anyone. We loved the view of the Leith waters. The proximity to the city center was ideal. The area was quiet and seemed quite safe. If someone cared to upgrade the furniture and add a few luxury items, this townhouse could be absolutely outstanding. I think the owner ought to visit it to see the shape it's currently in. It's time to invest a bit of money to make this the perfect place it could become.

“A really enjoyable stay”
Reviewed January 13, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

Myself and my family (5 of us) stayed in 20 Hawthorne Bank Lane for five days around New Years. We were delighted with this apartment. It was lovely, cosy and warm and it really felt like ‘home away from home’. It was clean and had everything we needed and the 3 bathrooms were great plus.
The views from the apartment were lovely and the location was great, we walked everywhere! It was lovely and quiet yet only minutes away from Princes Street.
We would definitely stay there if we were visiting Edinburgh again.

Management Response
22 Feb 2010
We are very grateful for Tracy's comments and are pleased to say that a new shower has been installed as well as a new television - other improvements include new beds in the master bedroom which can be made up as a super king or twin on request. We will do our utmost to ensure that small niggles in the system are ironed out.
