"Amazing place to spend NewYear"

So glad we chose this apartment to spend NewYears Eve. We have stayed in many places and this is amongst the best. It is beautifully presented, spacious and very clean. We were amazed by the bathroom and kitchen so much so it has made us want to modernize our own to the same level. The kitchen is so hi-tech, modern and beautiful and absolutely everything you could possibly need, and more, is provided. Karen is so helpful from start to finish she was there when we arrived and answered any questions we had regarding our stay in Edinburgh her advice was invaluable, she contacted us throughout our stay to check things were ok. We were slightly concerned that the apartment was located a short distance from the centre however it was easy enough to walk and taxis were cheap quick and reliable even over NewYear so we needn't have worried. We will definitely return to this apartment when we next visit Edinburgh.

"Brilliant Place to stay"

This was great accommodation, easy access to city centre and surrounds and off street parking. The welcome bonus pack was one of those bonus extras which makes all the difference.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our place including the welcome pack. We like to help guests settle in with some local information and of course tea, coffee, shortbread, milk, bread, butter and wine.
