We we're given a two room apartment after paying for a one bedroom.

We had no use for the second room but was pleased with it. Two large bathrooms and two good size bedrooms. The small kitchen had a warped worktop but it didn't stop any function. Dishwasher, washer drier and enough kitchen tools for anything you wished to cook. Small cracks and chips here and there but still an outstanding place. Just outside of Edinburgh, takes about 10 minutes on the bus at a cost of £1.50 per trip which arrives regularly. Staff at the property were fantastic, would happily stay there again

Ticked every box

There's nothing they haven't thought of here.

We went for three nights over the new year period and as we have never been to edinburgh before we were purely going off the pictures and reviews from others and they weren't wrong. There's every utensil in the kitchen you can possible think of, which wouldn't usually be an issue for us if there were few, but as we were traveling with small children these minor details meant a lot. The 2 bedroom apartment was of a far size with two bathrooms (one with bath and shower and the other just shower) again great whilst traveling with children, small wash room with washing machine (which we never anticipated using but however came in great use. Oh an they supplied washing tablets. Again minor detail but great idea), open plan kitchen and living room and small balcony. The beds were supper comfortable. That comfortable in fact that since we've been home we've gone out and bought the same one. Generally a nice clean living space suitable for anyone to stay.

The staff were excellent and helped with luggage on arrival as we were a few hours earlier than planned they stored our belongings and had them sent up to our room later on whilst we went for a walk to get out barings. There's was always someone avaliable to help with directions, advise on places to eat and places to visit. 100% for their efforts.

The only one thing for some would be the location. Although it was great for us as we do not mind a walk, those looking to be more in the centre, this may not be the one for you. It was around a 20 to 30 minute walk to the centre but there are many routes to walk it so you get to know the area around you more and can experience the small independent cafes and eateries along the way. Also if your thinking of going to Edinburgh as a tourist, then expect a lot of walking anyway otherwise you'll be spending a lot of money on travel to experience everything there is. Bus stops near by also with busses going into the city centre and a great taxi service.

As it is self catered we took a few essentials tea, coffee, sugar but found this was all provide. There is a tesco however a stones throw away from the apartments where you can stick up on food if you planning on cooking and again this maybe a minor to some but for us with a small child we found ourselves nipping in there a good few times. A lot cheaper than any of the local shops there with many of them praying on the tourist and being very over priced.

Excellent in my opinion.

A Top Class Experience

This I night luxury stay for my husband and I between Christmas and New Year surpassed anything that I would have expected from an apartment.

Having previously always stayed in 4* Edinburgh Hotels, we feel that this was a much nicer option for us and everything, from our lovely welcome from the reception team member to our beautifully clean and well equipped apartment was such a nice surprise that we would have loved to have stayed longer!!
