Once again (our third visit) we have been back to Mike and Sally's Hopetoun Crescent apartment. For my wife and I that, in itself, is testament to such a welcoming and appealing establishment; wherever we have stayed, over several decades, we only return when we have been completely happy with our surroundings. Additionally, to be greeted by the owner on arrival is rare; in almost all cases we have been told where to find the keys. It is not necessary, in my opinion, for me to to comment in detail on the facilities available; they are all so pertinently described. The location is ideal; so near to the city centre but just far enough out to be able to relax in peace and quiet at the end of each rewarding day. We cannot thank Mike and Sally enough for allowing us to use their apartment, and also for the personal touches they give. Many yeras ago we met, quite by chance, and became great friends with a man we have always felt is a great ambassador for the unique city of Edinburgh: without doubt Mike and Sally are from the same mould. One day, Deo volente, we will be back.
Response from the owner Once again, thank you so much for your kind comments. We are so pleased that you chose our comfortable, central apartment to return to yet again. We try our best to maintain high standards and it gives us great satisfaction to know that our service is appreciated by our valued guests.
“Excellent, great apartment, great location, super- friendly owne”
Our second stay but would have been our third except we were too late booking last year, its a popular place for return visits so our fault; we really cannot find anything to complain about and will return as often as we can!
Response from the owner Thanks Abe and Ann. We really appreciate it when our guests take the time to complete a review and it gives us great satisfaction to welcome return visitors. We hope to see you both again next year.
“Perfect apartment and base to explore Edinburgh”
We were doing an extensive tour around Scotland in a rental car and chose this apartment solely because it came with the rare commodity in the city centre of free parking at the apartment. As it turned out, the location was such that we never needed to use the car. We walked to Edinburgh Castle. We walked to the Royal Yacht Brittania. There weren't any sites we wanted to see that we could not walk to effortlessly. And I'm a senior and not especially fit so just about anyone should be able to do it. Besides the location, the apartment itself was perfect. It was clean, well-equipped in all respects and Mike and Sally provided some excellent Scottish shortbread and other treats which we happily consumed. We were especially pleased that the wi-fi was fast and reliable as we both needed access daily for professional reasons.
Response from the owner So glad you found our apartment suited your requirements so well. It's central location, free parking and wi fi make it very convenient for our guests whether here for business or pleasure or both! Hope to see you again sometime. Sally and Mike.
“Fabulous apartment, great location.”
We only stayed here for one night as we were let down at the last minute, but that did not discourage the owners in doing everything they possibly could to ensure that our stay was enjoyable & relaxing. The little touches in the apartment like tea, coffee and milk were very much appreciated. The apartment is located on a very nice, quiet crescent just ten minutes walk from the train station, great base for exploring. We would definitely stay here again for our next trip to this lovely city.
Response from the owner Thank you for appreciating our efforts. We look forward to welcoming you to our comfortable apartment for a longer stay next time!
“Enjoyable visit thanks to Mike and Sally”
We stayed in this apartment early april. We met Mike there and he was very welcoming to our family of 5 which included 3 children ages 9-11. Upon arrival there were some treats and a bottle of wine waiting for us which is such a nice thoughtful gesture and much appreciated. We (okay maybe it was mostly me)ate/drank all of it within 24 hours (oink! oink!) Oh and there were some fresh fruit too. Everything you can think of is there for your visit including a nice book that gives you recommendations of things to do, places to eat, instructions on all appliances and more. It's in a great location and you can walk easily to just about anything but we used the black taxis a few times to keep whining to a minimum when there was inclement weather or we were lazy and it was very inexpensive, maybe 5-6 euro one way for our whole family. It's apparent that Mike and Sally have given thoughtful consideration to what guests may need during their stay in Edinburgh. If you have any questions or concerns, Mike is prompt in getting back to you. Thank you for such a lovely stay and we will definitely request to stay there again for future visits which is highly likely as we plan to attend all future UK friends for Life conferences in Glasgow and would, of course, make a stop over in Edinburgh again. Oh and don't forget to sign the guest book before you leave!
Response from the owner Hi Bonnie and Family We are so glad you all had a good time in Edinburgh and look forward to welcoming you back whenever you plan another visit. We always aim to provide a warm welcome and to make sure our guests think of our apartment as a true home from home. Best wishes Sally and Mike
“Highly Recommend Staying Here”
My husband and I stayed in this lovely apartment in September for 4 nights. The apartment is close to transportation and walking distance to the city center. You will find all the amenities you will need in this home away from home. Thank you for your kind hospitality The fruit, flowers, wine and cakes were a nice addition you don't usually get in a vacation rental. If we ever go back to Edinburgh we will definitely stay here.
Response from the owner It is always a pleasure to welcome guests personally and our aim is to make the experience of staying in our city centre apartment as comfortable and as pleasant as possible. Thank your for taking the time to appreciate our efforts.
Convenient location within walking distance of the Royal Mile, but not as expensive as some comparable apartments. A very well equipped kitchen means that you don't always have to eat out. The owners provided a lovely welcome pack of basic items and met us in person to hand over the keys. The free parking right in the city center is worth the price itself. Good facilities all round. We would definitely come here again.
Response from the owner We always look forward to meeting returning guests. It reassures us that we have the right formula - a comfortable apartment in a central location, at a reasonable cost. Free parking is the icing on the cake. Thanks for choosing our apartment. See you next time! Sally and Mike.
“We came back!”
Stayed here in 2011 and august 2012. Great value for money - very helpful owners - everything you need in the apartment and close to co-op/tesco mini markets. Will stay again in the future
Response from the owner Edinburgh is a popular destination all year round. We look forward to welcoming you back for a third visit in the not too distant future. Kindest regards. Sally and Mike.
“In a word ...Great”
Our second stay and once again Sally & Mike came up trumps, from their welcome to their superb attention to detail.The flat contains everything that you could possibly need during your visit.From a fully equipped kitchen down to a sewing kit ! From a welcoming bottle of wine, milk, fruit etc to a selection of books & Dvds ( just in case it rains LOL ). The location is only a 10 to 15 minute stroll to the city centre, passing dozens of bars and restuarants en route. A midnight black cab taxi back from The Royal Mile only costs £5. To sum up, it is clean, comfortable & convenient. We will return.
Response from the owner Thanks Jackie & John for your kind comments. Will try to improve the weather next time although it is only supposed to be damp in Edinburgh when there is an `r` in the month! Look forward to meeting you all again. Best regards Mike & Sally
Fantastic apartments in a perfect location, the owners are really helpful and accommodating and I would recommend these apartments for anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh.
Response from the owner Thank you for your kind comments. We look forward to meeting you again next time you visit Edinburgh. Kind Regards, Sally and Mike
