“Perfect location for a comfortable City break.”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Travelled to Edinburgh by train from Yorkshire for a weekend break.
We found the apartment to be perfect for all our needs.
The apartment is very well situated within ten minutes walk from the train station. If you don't fancy the walk the number 22 bus leaves directly from across the road outside the station to the end of Macdonald Road, or lots of taxis available in the station.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, and has everything you would need for a comfortable break. A quiet location, two bathrooms, comfortable settees, comfortable beds, good central heating, broadband and some very nice touches (fresh flowers, fresh fruit basket and tea and coffee with milk in the fridge on arrival) all made for a very good weekend.
Lots of bars & restaurants within walking distance of the apartment.
Booking the apartment was a smooth process with excellent and prompt attention from the owners Terry & Ann.
I would certainly recommend this apartment.

Thank you for your kind words. It's a great city for a weekend break and easy to get around from the apartment as you say. You'll have to come back for a week next time! - look forward to your return.

“Excellence in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We were absolutely delighted with everything about the apartment. It was spotless on arrival with thoughtful extras to welcome us like the fresh flowers and the milk for tea and coffee, fruit and biscuits. The private off street parking was a blessing as we parked our hire car and forgot about it for the week. It was a quick bus ride to the centre of town and very walkable as well. The co-op and tescos were a few minutes round the corner and Vittoria's up the road was a delight. We were warm and cosy after our days out in the city and couldn't have wished for a better spot in our first visit to Edinburgh.

“Perfect base for September Weekend with kids”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Perfect base to enjoy a weekend in Edinburgh with 2 kids (ages 6 and 3). Booking was easy. Thorough and clear communication from the owners helped. Spacious apartment equipped to a very high standard. Parking meant we ditched the car, walked or took the bus. Locality is well served (Coop, ATM's, bus stops, cafe's, independant shops). Plenty of pubs and restaurants which we might have used if we didn't have kids with us. Visits to the Zoo, the national museum and Deep Sea World easily filled 3 days, leaving plenty of attractions for another visit.

“Better than advertised!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I can't say enough about this apartment. My two friends and I stayed here for 4 nights. We walked everywhere except to and from the airport. It was very clean; the furniture was comfortable; the size was perfect;, we felt very safe; the grocery store was just steps away. Another thing we loved is that we had the keys to the apartment in our hands when we arrived. We didn't have to wait on anyone to open for us. The correspondence with Terry and Ann was always immediate and thorough.

Many thanks for your comments! Must admit when we stay anywhere self catering we like having a shop nearby if we haven't got our car with us. It's really handy having a couple of supermarkets so close. Hope you manage back to see us again in the future!
