Very Good

“Excellent apartment, very clean and good location”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2019

We stay in Edinburgh on a regular basis and Terry and Ann's apartment is the best we have experienced so far. The location is perfect, the apartment is clean with great amenities and has everything you need to make it feel like you are living in your own home--whilst on holiday. Terry and Ann made the booking process seamless and their response to any questions we had was prompt and friendly. The access to parking was a real bonus. We would definitely recommend the apartment.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind words. Haste ye back!

“Fantastic Fringe base”

We had a lovely stay at the apartment. The place was spotlessly clean and our 16 year old son said the bed was the most comfortable he'd ever slept in. The location was perfect too - central but … More

“Excellent apartment and location!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2019

Ideal location to explore Edinburgh, shops, restaurants, bars all nearby, yet apartment is situated in a quiet and peaceful area. Can't fault the apartment, very spacious, excellent kitchen and lovely sitting room. Thank you to Terry and Anne for the welcome pack which included flowers, fruit! Would definitely stay again.

Owner's reply: Really appreciate you taking the time to review our apartment. Glad you had a great stay. Haste he back!

“Excellent Apartment”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2019

Ideal location for visiting Edinburgh. Apartment was great. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, cosy comfortable sitting area. Although apartment is on the first floor not too many steps to climb. Great to have parking space. Owner left welcome pack which included fruit and vase of flowers which was a lovely touch. Apartment is close to food shops, restaurants, pubs and bus stops. Royal Yacht Britannia and central Edinburgh are walkable. Don't miss this great holiday apartment

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our apartment. Hope we can welcome you back sometime in the future.

“Great base for a family break in the Athens of the North!”

Reviewed 1 May 2019

We are familiar with Edinburgh having been students there and having 2 sons now living there. We wanted a space to base ourselves in, close to the city and where our sons could visit us for meals as well as eating out. McDonald Road is a great location for Princes Street, George Street and Queen Street - the centre of Edinburgh - as well as easily placed for Holyrood and Arthur's Seat. The local amenities in shops and bars (Valvonna and Crolla deli is a must) are part of a booming area. Terry and Ann were helpful and prompt in all the dealings to secure the booking. The flat is a lovely space - compact with everything needed to enjoy a few days. The Juliet balcony in the living room was very helpful for the hottest Easter on record... Heartily recommend!

Owner's reply: Really appreciate you taking the time to review our apartment. Thanks for your kind comments and hopefully we can welcome you back in the future.

“Rugby Base”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2019

This is our third stay at McDonald Street; the perfect place to base ourselves for a rugby weekend. Central but quiet part of town with great facilities in the apartment. Terry and Ann are very accommodating and regular friendly e-mails to confirm all our details and requirements. Thanks again and we will be back!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for staying with us again. Always good to welcome folk back and good of you to take the time for your review. Haste ye back!

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2018

Perfect place for my friend Cathy and me to spend 9 glorious days in the fabulous city of Edinburgh. Lots of room, with two bedrooms and 2 baths....we loved the privacy that provided. Not far from The Royal Mile, we had lots of things to see and do. Bus stops close by, with grocery stores handy. The owners were quick to get back with answers to our questions, and the extras, (coffee, milk, fresh flowers etc.) were truly appreciated. If ever we are fortunate enough to venture back that way, this is definitely the place we’d stay!

Owner's reply: Thanks for staying with us and for your review with your kind words. Hope you come back from Nova Scotia to visit us again!


Reviewed 1 Sep 2018

This was the second time we have stayed in this apartment. It's perfect, and so many extra touches such as the welcome pack and even flowers on the table. It's spotlessly clean, comfortable, within easy walking distance of the centre and on a bus route too. We would not think of staying anywhere else whilst in Edinburgh. Definately 5 star!

Owner's reply: Thanks for coming back and staying with us. Really appreciate you taking the time to review our apartment and for your kind words. Hope you manage to come back and stay with us again.
