    Excellent accommodation only short walk to the Royal Mile and other attractions. Our apartment was clean, bright and modern. Good facilities within the apartment which enabled us to feel at home. The concierge was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and made us most welcome. The welcome pack was full of goodies and a good range of toiletries were available in the bathroom. Would definitely visit again, hopefully soon!

    I really could not fault it one bit. From the very friendly and helpful staff, to the clean apartment. It has been a very long time since I stopped in Edinburgh, and I could not have wished to stop in a nicer apartment. Don’t be put off about the reviews that mention the lap dancing bars nearby, as we found them to be quiet and trouble-free. Located near to the Grass market this was a excellent base where to explore the city.

    Next time would stay at the rear as there was a lot of late night noise from the front street.

    Fabulous

    Very clean and spacious accommodations with a parking space. Enjoyed the apartment style with kitchen and living room/dining area. Both bedrooms were spacious and beds were comfortable.

    In an area with many one way streets making it difficult to get to the hotel.

    This is excellent serviced self catering accommodation, reception staff are particularly welcoming and helpful. We really appreciate the flexiblility and space of an apartment rather than hotel rooms. This was our 4th visit and no doubt we will return

    Fabulous

    The concierge was extremely friendly and helpful. The location suited us very well as we were able to walk everywhere. The maid service was a bonus and made it feel more luxurious.

    The twin bedroom had loads of hanging space, but no shelves or sensible drawer space-part of the wardrobe could easily be made in to shelf space. The apartment was not as clean as we experinced when we stayed last year.We had to wash an oven tray before use and the kitchen was generally grubby with crumbs on the floor.Skirting boards very dusty everywhere, but surface clean elsewhere. I have to say that this did not detract from our holiday in any way, but was a bit disappointing after a spotless apartment last year.
