"Violet Bank House"

We often stay in Edinburgh for long Holyrood [2 to 3 months], but wanted to find a new property close to where we used to live at Bruntsfield.Booking months ahead was fairly painless.Close… More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property and responding so well to our follow up e-mails after your stay. We are glad that you found our approach professional and that you wish to come back. As I explained in my e-mails we will act on all of the factual issues you highlighted for us. Regarding the water temperature, we have checked the fitting and the temperature can be fully controlled. Perhaps we should have explained how it works and are sorry about that.

"Great location in Morningside neighborhood!"

We love Morningside and with the efficient and frequent city buses, all of Edinburgh is virtually at your doorstep. Also, it is so convenient to have the Waitrose grocery store just a block away and,… More

Many thank for your kind review. We like to fix any problem quickly as we can, it not only helps you but us as well and prevents things getting worse. 'A stitch in time' attitude. Thank you for pointing it out actually, we would not have picked this one up unless we were staying there, and we couldn't do that in the December period.
We hope you'll come back and stay again and there will be a discount for you.

"Perfect place to discover edinburgh!!"

We spent 5 days at Retas Apartment. The flat is easy to reach and lovely equiped to a veryhigh standard. Everything was clean and tidy.A perfect place in the middle of morningside. Nearby you will fi… More

Thank you for your review. Morningside is a lovely area with so many cafes, bars, restaurant and shops to explore. The bus service is great to, with many bus routes passing along Morningside Road to the city centre there is always one just about to arrive. Edinburgh is a small city with many green spaces creating beautiful walks. We often encourage guests to walk to the city centre through Bruntsfield, over the Meadows Park and through the Old Town. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will come again soon.

"Lovely apartment for a stay"

The flat is lovely & has all the facilities you need to enjoy your stay in a stunning city.Booking, pre arrival communication with owners and arrival was painless and easy - receiving a very warm welc… More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We really appreciate our guest's feedback. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that our booking and checking processes works well for our guests. I am sorry that the bus drivers were grumpy but I can assure you they are not all like this. It can be awkward sometimes that the buses only accept exact money but they have now introduced mobile ticketing for smartphones and citysmart cards which can be topped up on the bus or in the travel shop. The transport Edinburgh app is a very useful tool providing route information and accurate timings for the next bus is due.
Thank you again for your review and please come again. Regards Reta, John and Steven

"Very pleasant"

The flat is very warm decorated and has all the facilities you need to enjoy your stay. Location was perfect for us. Everyone was very helpful and we received everything we needed. The rooms are very … More

Thank you for posting your review. We love to staying in this apartment ourselves and so want it to be as comfortable and as well-equipped as possible. Morningside is a great area with everything you could need within a few minutes' walk of the apartment. In our view the apartment is in an excellent location. The city centre is only 2 miles away, 10 minutes by bus or the woodland nature reserve of the Hermitage of the Braids and Blackford Hill is just 10 minutes' walk from the apartment. For those feeling more adventurous 10 minutes by bus out of the city are the Pentland Hills offering over 100km of paths.
Thanks for your support and please do come again, Reta, John and Steven
