“Comfortable apartment in an excellent location.”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a great time staying in this nice apartment while we were in Edinburgh. It's in the perfect location; close to local stores, ten minute walk away from Edinburgh Zoo (highly recommended) and a fifteen minute bus ride from the city center (with a bus stop right around the corner). Being away from the city center as well, meant that the local area was quiet of an evening.
The owner was lovely when we first arrived at the apartment and there was plenty of information about what to do in the area. The apartment was clean and tidy, with all the necessary equipment for a great stay.
Would recommend and would definitely consider staying again should we return to Edinburgh in the future.

“Excellent Location”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Loved staying here for a few days while we explored the city for a break. The apartment is situated in a great place with easy access to bus and plenty of little shops round. The hosts were brilliant and left a great manual to help with things close by if needed. We had a lovely time and would definitely use again if we were going back to Edinburgh.

“Great location”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely welcome from owner, tablet and shortbread delicious !! Great location, easy access into town and a 10 minute walk to the zoo. Lots of food places and small grocery stores within walking distance. Apartment had everything we needed (2 adults and 2 children). My deposit was refunded before I even got home ! Definately book again if it's available, sad it's booked for my next visit down.

“Lovely apartment with everything you need and a great location”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fantastic stay in a great location. Apartment is very clean and bright with everything you could need and the owners were really pleasant and helpful. The excellent facilities, local shops and very handy transport links to the centre of town made our stay a pleasure.

“Excellent for travel but noisy & damp”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We found that the location was fantastic for access to town, and for amenities. The apartment was clean too and fit our purpose. Negatives were the level of street noise which made it difficult to sleep, and the smell of damp that permeated the apartment - we had to wash every piece of clothing upon our return home, and found that the damp in the flat affected our breathing.

Thank you for your review. We are most concerned that you did not fully enjoy your stay.

As you say the location of the apartment is fantastic, the area can be busy at times and we are sorry that your sleep was disturbed.

In light of your concerns over a damp smell we have had had the apartment inspected professionally and we were unable to find any evidence of damp or a damp smell, it is therefore unclear what it was you experienced.

As you will have seen from the previous reviews neither noise or smells have been raised as an issue and we will of course continue to ensure our apartment meets the high standards we set.

“Great apartment close to all amenities”
Reviewed January 12, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment over New Years. Close to all amenities - supermarket, pubs etc and just a short bus ride into the centre. Flat was clean and warm and hosts were really helpful and always quick to reply. Would definitely stay again!
