Edinburgh Zoo, one of Auld Reekie’s most popular attractions, is just across the road but fear not, they have very sturdy enclosures… Sleeping up to five guests in style, this modern apartment with designated parking is perfect for your next city break. Prepare to be wowed as you step in to the spacious, open plan living and dining area with sleek, contemporary design. All of your entertainment needs are met, from the 50-inch Freeview TV with Blu-ray DVD player, to the board games and a large selection of DVDs. There’s also super-fast WiFi, complimentary to all of our guests. Over in the immaculate kitchen you’re met with everything you need to rustle up your own home cooked treats. There’s an oven and microwave, a large fridge and ample freezer space. Fancy letting someone else do the dirty work? No problem, the local area boasts of plenty of coffee shops and eateries so be sure to ask your property manager for some personal recommendations. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe space and feature one king-size master bedroom with en suite shower room, one double bedroom, and one single bedroom. Guests are treated to a little slice of luxury, as the en suite and family bathroom (with shower over bath) both benefit from heated floors and towel rails. There’s plenty of storage throughout, including ottoman style beds to store your luggage, and a large utility cupboard with a washer/dryer, an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer. The final perk of this fantastic property, is a designated parking space and a secure lock up if you decide to bring or hire bikes for your visit. In terms of location, you are in the wonderful, leafy and historic area of Corstorphine. There’s plenty of information on Edinburgh and the local area in the apartment, including suggestions for walking tours taking in the 17th Century Forresters Dowers House and the Dovecot. A little more effort you can reach Clermiston Tower, a monument for Sir Walter Scott in the Corstorphine Hill Nature Reserve and from the walks and pathways you will have spectacular views of Edinburgh, the Firth of Forth and on a clear day see Glasgow at the end of the central belt. If you can peel yourself away from the local attractions, you’ll find yourself amidst Edinburgh’s famous medieval Old Town in no time. The bus stops practically at your door, and there are 3 main services that will drop you on Princes Street, George Street or take you over the North Bridges into the student quarter. That’s at least 6 services in one hour by the 26, the 31 and the 12. The buses to and from Edinburgh Airport, Waverley and Haymarket train stations, Glasgow and Stirling all stop outside the Zoo and there are numerous taxis on this main route. A short walk will take you to the tram stop at Balgreen and combined with your road routes to the motorways and ring road you can easily explore further afield. A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager. Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of 15 pounds for unsociable hours. 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. Check in is from 4pm, and check out is before 11am.More
