Lochside House is a charming Georgian cottage that has been extensively refurbished and extended to create a great mix of character and modernity. Simply furnished, this B listed house is situated in the most enviable position, a quiet 'country like village' yet within the heart of Edinburgh with lovely views of Arthur seat. Set within its own grounds, the back garden is completely secluded and enclosed. The property has unrestricted on street parking. The entrance hall leads to the dining room and from there you can access the modern lounge and kitchen. The lounge is a new addition to the property and boasts floor to ceiling glass covering most of 2 walls. The massive glass panels open to create a fantastic interaction between the house and the garden -bringing 'the outside in'.

Set within its own grounds, the back garden is completely secluded and enclosed. The property has unrestricted on street parking. The entrance hall leads to the dining room and from there you can access the modern lounge and kitchen. The lounge is a new addition to the property and boasts floor to ceiling glass covering most of 2 walls. The massive glass panels open to create a fantastic interaction between the house and the garden -bringing 'the outside in'. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances. The other side of the entrance hall downstairs consists of 2 a-joining double bedrooms. The main downstairs bedroom has a patio door opening onto the back garden. There is a fantastic bathroom on the ground floor which has a great power shower over a full size bath. Upstairs there are 2 principle bedrooms both with en-suite shower rooms. Both these bedrooms have double beds. The third smaller upstairs bedroom has bunk beds. Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of £30 for unsociable hours, arrivals after 10 pm will incur a fee of £50 and arrivals after midnight, a fee of £60. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed. The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already. A £200 refundable damage/security deposit is due 7 days before arrival and refunded after departure. All properties are strictly non-smoking and do not accept hen/stag/party groups. At least one guest must be over 25 years old. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager at least 24 hours before arrival.More

It is never great to receive negative reviews however it does help us improve the standard of our properties. I can confirm we have addressed these issues and the necessary changes have been made. I hope you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh.

We arrived at the house to find it just as cold inside as outside and this is a big old stone built house that takes for ever to heat up. A vertical wall radiator had leaked in the living room onto the floor leaving a...More
