“Great location close to Royal Mile”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2015

The flat was so conveniently close to the Royal Mile. Just mere steps to everything you want or need. Blair Street was a bit noisy at night with nearby pubs but the bedrooms are in the back of the flat which helped with noise reduction. The rooms are all nice in size and clean. The entry into the building is a bit sad and the view from the bedrooms is not appealing. But overall the flat was wonderful for our family of three. Dave met us at the flat and showed us everything we needed for our stay. Dave was also very kind to send us our IPad which we accidently left. The booking process was easy and communication prompt. We felt the flat was a great value and we enjoyed relaxing there with the fireplace on a cold evening. We would most definitely recommend this flat.

Very good location for old town. Apartment clean and tidy with plenty of space. Edinburgh Self Catering company very helpful as I had to change dates numerous times. Only one concern was there's two doors into apartment after main outside door. First door my 6 year old daughter was able to push open while supposedly locked and second inner door the lock just about reached the door frame. Other than that my family and I had nice time and would definitely use this location again

“Fab location”

Reviewed 3 May 2014

Entrance a bit grim but that is the only negative. Very easy to walk everywhere, find food, supermarket round the corner. Inside was lovely and didn't hear the neighbours at all.

“Great location!”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2013

We stayed in this apartment for 6 nights from Sept 5 - 11, 2013. All up front correspondence was answered promptly and Dave Stewart met us at the apartment for check-in with no problems. The location is fantastic - 1 block and you're on the Royal Mile. You can walk anywhere from this location. Lots of shops and restaurants are at the doorstep. Many of the tours we took had meeting locations very close to the apartment on the Royal Mile. The apartment is spacious and the wifi was easy to access. We took advantage of the washer & dryer and used the dishwasher without any problems. A few notes of caution for future travellers: while most of the apartment is clean, the carpets in the 2 bedrooms are stained and need to be replaced. As another reviewer noted, the sofas in the living room are very worn and a bitty smelly and should also be replaced. There were also some very noisy neighbors above us who stomped around late at night and woke us up several nights in the wee hours. One last item to note is the bathroom sink is really small and the hot & cold water taps are separated so a bit awkward to use.

“Great apartment”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2013

We stayed at this apartment for one week in September. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable, and is very well located for a visit to the highlights of Edinburgh. We will definitely stay here again on our future visits to Edinburgh.

“Comfortable and well appointed apartment with a central location”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2013

Three of us stayed for a week to experience the Fringe for the fourth year. This was the best apartment that we had stayed in by far and we have already booked it again for next year. We were met by Dave Stewart who was really helpful and friendly. The apartment was well furnished with excellent comfortable beds. For once we managed to access the internet with no trouble! The location was perfect for all the festival venues in the city with the maximum walk approx. 10 min.

“The most Relaxing and Comfortable apartment”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2013

The apartment was very clean, spacious and fully equipped. The beds were so comfortable and the sheets and bedding were spotless. The apartment is centrally located, in fact on the Mile, easy access to transport and shops and 5 mins away from Waverly Station. Would recommend this apartment for a group of 6.

Another great stay in this fab central apartment.

“Apartment rental”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

The reservatiion was suppose to be ground floor access. My 73 year old mother had issue with accessing the apartment since there was not suppose to be climbing stairs. The access point to the apartment was also not very clean. The apartment was in a great location for accessing the Royal Mile. The apartment itself was ok. The heat was somewhat of a issue since it took at least the day to heat up the apartment. The wash machine also broke while we there. Other than that we had a wonderful experience.

Response from the manager It appears that continental definitions of what floor description means caused a problem here and I apologise for that confusion which led to an inconvenience to the reviewers mother. First floor in the UK means the first floor up from ground level and we have been advised that "first floor" in other parts of the world can be interpreted as the ground level. I have now added "(first floor up from ground level)" to the description for this property to clarify this.

“Home away from home in a prime Edinburgh location”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

Lovely home with everything you need on a holiday. Clean and well maintained, with a lovely kitchen. So close to the Royal Mile and really easy to find from the train station (Edinburgh Waverley).
