"Great location, beautiful, serene apartment, reasonable price, and a nice and friendly landlord!"
It was a great stay for me and my family for the summer vacation in scotland, this apartment was nearby Royal Britannia Yacht and Ocean terminal shopping centre which itself was a great location to spend some leisurely time in the evening. Lots of restaurents and bars nearby and Royal botannic gardens and all other tourist spots were pretty close by and the Majestic tours bus also stopping nearby so that we didnt have to use car. Apartment looked quiet new and had a an enclosed car park and is in the 3 rd floor. Rooms and facilities were as described and I will say it was better than we imagined. Every thing was classy and well kept and neat, and facilities were robust and there was bread milk, sugar and tea were all provided for a couple of days. Large screen Tv and PS3 was there with a great collection of DVD and even PS3 games including assassin creed 2 and little big planet ( Unfortunately I didnt get enough time to use them though), there was even a Bose iphone dock speaker and in short caters the needs of the members of the family for their different needs. We loved it and Craig was really helpful and friendly, he came and sorted internet when we had a problem with the internet. We recommend this apartment if you plan to stay in Scotland especially as a family, you will love it..
