Destination Edinburgh Southside Apartments

Reviewed 22 August 2010

Five of us booked to stay during the Festival. Comfortable beds - singles as we'd requested. Amazingly spacious apartment with two bathrooms and reasonably equipped kitchen. Quite a bit of traffic noise - unavoidable as the road is very busy. Easy to find taxis/buses. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly book at Southside again.

We stayed here for three nights with two children aged 6 & 9. The man who met us at the apartment was friendly and helpful and the apartment is back off a busy high street, although not noisy. The aparment itself is large, clean, comfortable and well equipped for a long stay. The beds were great and the bathroom fine. The Royal Mile is a 15 minute walk and there are numerous small convenience shops nearby. The post office and Tesco supermarket is a 10 minute walk. Would stay here again when in Edinburgh.

We stayed in the basement 1 bed apartment.
The apartment itself was very nice and comfortable and we were made welcome on checkin.
Unfortunately there were a few small things that overall made our stay less than 100%.
- The sheets and towels were stained.
- The bathroom door didn't close properly/easily.
- The shower water pressure was dismal, and cold at times.
- The kitchen cooker hadn't been cleaned (some of the cutlery was questionable too as there's no dishwasher).
- We were left with half a roll of toilet paper for a 2 night stay!

Some attention to detail and cleanliness would have gone a long way! I told the manager about a couple of the issues so hopefully they rectify them.

But there's a pub a couple of doors down that does great food! And you get 10% discount if staying at the apartments.

This was surely a jewel in the crown. The apartment was spacious, clean, comfortable, modern - what else could we ask - Much bigger than I was expecting aswell & all the amenities for a week or more in the city - shame we were only there for a night! Couldn't believe the location either - right beside the bus stop from town, couldn't have been easier. If there was a down side it would have been no parking, but this wasn't a problem as there was a council run carpark with 24hr cctv close by for £10
Brilliant - Thankyou.

This was a perfect place to base our large groups of 20 hens for the weekend. Clean, very roomy, and great location only a short taxi ride or 20 min stroll from the city centre. Although it can be a little noisy with the traffic around peak hours, it really is a great place to stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending it!

Organised a rugby tour to Edinburgh earlier this year (May 2008) and had a brilliant experience.

Finding accommodation that can cater for 24 demanding players on a ‘vets’ tour is not the easiest experience. However, after a little searching came across these apartments. Initially never considered apartments for the simply reason of accommodating 24 people in the same location. We were able to book all 4 apartments which were all accessed through the same main door and stair, which in itself was very grand! All 4 apartments were spacious, lots of light, well appointed and fully furnished, exceeding our expectations.

On arrival, staff were there waiting to handover the keys and inform us of the area, they were very friendly and helpful. The apartments provided everyone space to spread out and relax. With the common access it allowed others to drift around and catch up. The beds were comfortable and the kitchens and bathrooms were very clean and showers hot. Each apartment had its own lounge, kitchen and dining area - it was terrific.

The location of the apartments was great - in a very nice area central to cafes, pubs, shops and restaurants. The walk into the old town is about a mile along a road well populated with every imaginable service you could ever need. The area provides large parks, heritage and a large swimming pool.

The most interesting reaction regarding the apartments was that many of the group requested contact details to return with friends and families, think that said it all!

I've stayed at these apartments a number of times in the last 12 months. The apartments have a clean fresh, interior with a large living area and decent sized bedrooms.

All manner of eating places are within a short walking distance and if you don't want to go out, there's a large kitchen area

I think these apartments are great value for money, situated as they are within easy reach of all parts of the city and I'll happily stay again when I'm next in Edinburgh.
