Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh and that you found the apartment comfortable.
I would just like to say that the apartment has two toilets toilets not three, I think that you just made a mistake as I am sure you know it is two, this is just for future guests benefit so they are not disappointed if they find less.
I would love to welcome you back if you return to Edinburgh.

Thanks so much for your review, Thistle Street was built around 1780, so no unfortunately there are no lifts in the apartment stairwell or in similar apartments in Edinburgh. It is approx 33 steps to the apartment door on the stair well there are hand rails to aid walking the stairs.
There was an extensive welcome pack sent to aid arrival to the apartment. I do apologise if this seemed confusing. The Calendar which is updated regularly is a reference point for viewers providing availability.
Viewers can also note on my previous review as to the respect I give each and every customer during correspondence.

Thank you so much for your postive review, "kicking-off" what I hope will be many more to come. It's been quite difficult to encourage people generally to fire over some feed-back from their stay and I hope you will have set the ball in motion. As you can appreciate, it's such a help and useful reference when you're trying to make up your mind at the booking stage - especially trying to seperate out the myriad of mediocre options currently available from the great ones :) We hope to see you again soon!
