“Great”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Great property in a great location. Large, bright property which was clean and comfortable. David, the owner, kept in touch from the point of booking and met us at the property at the time we agreed. He showed us how to work the appliances and was happy to recommend places to go and things to do around Edinburgh. This is a great apartment for a weekend away with friends and the parking was a great bonus for us too. Would definitely recommend.

“Perfect location, very well equipped and excellent value for money!”
Reviewed November 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Myself and 7 friends stayed here overnight during our girls' weekend in Edinburgh.
It was was perfect!
Location is great - a short taxi ride into George street or a 2 minute stroll down to the waterfront in leith.
Don't be put off by the dull stair well - the flat is lovely. It's clean, spacious, bright and really well equipped.
David (the lovely owner) met us at the flat on arrival and was extremely friendly and welcoming.
Excellent value for money.
Would definitely stay here again.

“Great location”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We parked the car in the back lot and did not need it again the entire week we stayed. The location is perfect for catching the bus into the city. We walked to a few of the local pubs and were very pleased with the safety of the area. The apartment was delightful to our adult twenty-something children. The high ceilings and large windows as well as the overall atmosphere gave it a very "urban" setting that they liked very much. Using the bus was relatively easy and I would recommend buying a daily bus pass that allows you unlimited transfers. Having a smart phone to chart your routes is great and the website is very helpful in finding which bus to catch where. We were comfortable in the space. The apartment is as advertised in the photos and descriptions. I do wish there was a dryer accompanying the washer, however. Hanging clothes to dry when you have a limited wardrobe for travelling was a bit of a challenge for us, but not one we couldn't overcome.

“Beautiful apartment”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a great stay in this lovely flat. There were 7 adults and I was a bit worried about inflatable bed as I would have preferred 4 bedrooms but to be honest the inflatable bed was very comfortable.
The only comment we had was from my mum who was in single bedroom and unfortunately the window beside her bed had no blind. We had to take other blind down while she was getting ready as someone was sitting on their window ledge directly across from flat.
We had to move bed across the room before she went to bed so that she could have some privacy. Other than that we could not fault the flat and would certainly recommend it.

“Better than the photos”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The apartment was beautiful and photos do not do it justice! High ceilings with beautiful decor and the immense space that you get! Each room has its own charm. My family and I had a lovely and relaxing stay albeit only for one night! We wished we could have stayed longer to properly enjoy the apartment. We even tried the aerobed while watching the World Cup and it was surprisingly comfortable!

David, the host, was friendly and very helpful and was in regular contact with us to ensure a smooth check-in.

Overall it was beyond expectations and highly recommended!

“10/10”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

The apartment is beautiful, clean and spacious once out of the hall way and behind the number 4 door. Completely met my high expectations. Enough room for 8 women to socialise and get ready for a night out in Edinburgh! Great location for travelling into the city. The aero beds in the description are not just your typical 'air bed' they are large and high from the ground. The owner David is extremely helpful and fair with the apartment, really made it seem like home for the evening. I would recommend the apartment to anyone and would definitely stay again. It is great value for money for large groups wanting something a bit more social and classy. 10/10 from me and the rest of my party

“Lovely apartment - but we felt it had been prepared in a hurry and was dirty”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

David has a beautiful flat but we felt that the place had been prepared in a hurry and had not been cleaned adequately after previous tenants. The floor was really dirty and my children ended up with black feet within a few minutes of walking around. It had been advertised as suitable for 8 but this meant that three people were on inflatable beds that were cold and uncomfortable. We were also disappointed at the reception as it took over an hour for David to receive us despite calls and texts about our arrival from 10am when we left Assynt until 4.30 when we arrived in Edinburgh. The directions / postcode were supposed to bring us to the car-park but it didn't and David hadn't provided the number of the flat so we were left driving round in circles. Very frustrating after a long drive.

David pointed out that he had fixed the blind, but the old cord had been left lying on the floor and had not been cleared away. This lack of attention to detail was apparent throughout.

It could be a wonderful place to stay but it just needs a bit more thought and care in the preparation and delivery.

Management Response

I have never had the need to respond to a review before. All I can say is please read ANY of the other reviews and form your own view. Re the aero beds-every other guest has found them to be very comfortable-they are top of the range and give great flexibility. I also do all in my power to accommodate guests who arrive late-sometimes very late as in this case (no-one waits or has waited more than 5 min for me).Again it is worth checking all of the other reviews on this property and the two others I have on this site. Even better-come and see for yourself! David
