“Warm and nice place!!”
We arrived Gordon place in early May and had stayed over for couple of nights. His place is awesome !! .. A Warm house complete with all facilities from towels to hot shower to TV and all , just like a home, nicely decorated. Just enought for 4 adults. Very comfy. Gordon is great too, despite is didnt get to meet him (sadly) but he still call up the house and check out on how we doing, very nice of him. We didnt find any problem moving around as we have rent a car, but you can find buying for grocery and food very convinient. Worth the price of stay! If i were to go back to Edinburgh, will definately look foward to stay in Gordon's house.
“Edinburgh Home away From Home”
My husband and I stayed in this comfortable apartment for 4 nights on a special anniversary trip. Gordon goes out of his way to make you feel welcome, even offering to pick us up from city center upon our arrival. Not only is there a breakfast basket provided, but the fridge is also stocked with several essentials. A grocery store (Sainsburys) is 5 minutes walk if you want to do your own cooking in the well-appointed kitchen. We slept wonderfully in the UK King-sized bed (it is closer to a us Queen size). To get to city center enter through the nearby gate into the breathtaking Holyrood Park. What views! You will find yourself on the Royal Mile within 15 minutes. We can whole-heartledly recommend this clean and inviting apartment. It is truly a great value for the money. Gordon is an excellent communicator and a real delight to work with!
“Wonderful Stay in Edinburgh”
My family and I were in Edinburgh for a 4 day trip as I was participating in the Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon that weekend.I was very interested in the apartment because of its proximity to Holyrood Park and the start and finish of the race.My children had a ball running all through the park and my husband and I enjoyed the stunning views of arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crag.Palace of Holyroodhouse,Holyrood abbey, Scottish Parliament, and the Royal Mile are all right there as well within very easy walkable distance.The owner left us phone numbers for a car service, a taxi service, and a bus schedule.The city itself is very manageable by foot and when we didn't walk we were able to get a taxi quickly and for a reasonable amount.The apartment itself was perfect for our family of four (myself, my husband, my children-age 12 and 9).Gordon, the owner, could not have done more to make our stay more pleasant or easy.We were able to make payment initially through Paypal (either in us dollars or pounds) and then were able to arrange with Gordon, once we arrived, how to pay the remaining amount.We were not fortunate enough to meet Gordon in person, as he was out of town,but we were able to contact him by phone when we needed to ask a question. He also called us to check in and make sure things were going well.Upon our arrival, we were very impressed to find fresh milk, eggs, yogurt, spring water in the fridge and coffee, snacks, bread, cereal in a basket on the kitchen table.Very thoughtful and very much appreciated.There were many other thoughtful touches...extra brand new toothbrushes in the bathroom should you have forgotten yours, as my husband did ;), fresh towels, sheets on the bed, iron, hair dryer, umbrellas, Dvd's, books,etc.Wonderful experience, highly recommend!
The place was sooo great! Super amazing, well stocked and wonderful home away from home experience. Gordon was very helpful and gave me step-by-step instructions on handling the key safe! Also, he stocked the kitchen with many basics and since we only stayed a few days we didn't even need to go to the market. He also ensured that we had a taste of the local Specialties- Irn Bru, Haggis, tea cakes etc. so yummy! There was nothing better than arriving after a long journey to such great accommodations. The flat is right next to Holyrood Park and you just walk across & are in the royal mile, super convenient. The rail station is also a few blocks away from the royal mile. Comfortable bed, warm, nice tv & DVD options. There is s witking phone, free wifi & access to a laptop. Really excellent and would recommend to everyone. Thank you Gordon!
Response from the owner Adrianna , thanks for your review , as I always try and make sure my guests ENJOy ! Edinburgh and all it offers . Gordon
“Perfect apartment & perfect host = perfect stay in Edinburgh.”
This is a luxury 1 bed apartment with everything you could want for a weekend away. We stayed Friday u til Monday. Gordon sent direction and information via email before we arrived. Picked us up and drove us to the apartment. It's cosy, clean, welcoming and has very easy access to the city. We wanted for nothing as Gordon had even left some goodies in the fridge and a pot of soup made too! Just the thing for a snowy day! Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. Comes highly recommended. We'll definitely be back.
“All the Comforts of Home”
Perfect apartment in a quiet location yet we could walk to everything, the Royal Mile in one direction the city bus stop in the other. All the amenities were there, from full cooking utensils, to a computer with internet access, even movies and a dvd player. Gordon was helpful and gave great tips on how to see the area. There are lots of brochures and guide books to assist in your research of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet and the bathroom was fully equipped with a tub and shower. We even used the washing machine and dryer, a great plus not to have laundry to bring home.
“Clean, conveniently located, and very comfortable flat.”
Right from the time we made the reservation online, the owner Gordon Lauder had been exceptionally responsive. Extremely helpful and offering help and assistance anticipating the needs of the potential renters. The access to this place can be a bit tricky and the street numbers and names are not clearly marked. We tried to depend on our GPS system but took a while and phone calls to Gordon to know where the apartment is. Gordon had stocked up the refrigerator with the essentials and the kitchen is well equipped. The apartment is three flights up, so if the stairs are not a problem, it is good to be on that floor. Though the location of this flat is very good: not too far from the center of the town, the views from the flat are not that great.
Response from the owner Thanks Gurdip , yes the views are. Open . And let light in . But as with all property the views Do come at a price . And if my Apartment was in the next street . Then I would have had to charge you about 40 /% more . So I say save and walk 1 min to Admire .... Hope you will vist Scotland and see more .
“Wonderful apartment and terrific host”
This apartment was neat, clean, large and well-furnished. All modern conveniences. Good location - near Holyrood Park and Palace. Landlord was extremely helpful - above and beyond. Gave us a ride from the train station and had food in the refrigerator. He called to insure our trip was going well and provided tips for sights to see and traveling. We would highly recommend this property.
“Neat, well appointed vacation apartment - generous, kind host!”
Wish we had more time to enjoy this wonderful apartment and the beautiful city of Edinburgh...but not meant to be for this trip. I have to say,though, the apartment was wonderful! Lots of steps to lug luggage, but otherwise everything was fantastic. It's decorated so beautifully, and every space is maximized perfectly. I loved that there was Haggis in the fridge...maybe on another visit I'll be brave enough to try it! Gordon is a great,kind, and generous host! Always checked in to make sure everything was going well. Location was within easy walking distance to the bus stop, which was good because it got us everywhere. A good, central location to explore Edinburgh from.
Response from the owner Thanks for your kind words of encouragement " see u next year i hope " gordon
