“Great location in Morningside neighborhood!”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

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, of course, Canny Man's pub nearby. John, Reta and Steven are all very friendly and accommodating and helpful as landlords. There was a small building problem we merely mentioned during our stay and they were right on top of it! This is a really nice apartment with comfortable accommodations - and being on the ground floor is a bonus. Highly recommended!

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.

We spent 5 days at Retas Apartment. The flat

high standard. Everything was clean and tidy.
A perfect place in the middle of morningside.
Nearby you will find lots of nice restaurants and shops. The next bus station is just around the corner.
Highly recommended!!

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”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

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 welcome!

Just off the bus routes into the city, travel was easy (bus drivers were grumpy, don't give change - so use the Edinburgh Travel App for ease of travel).

The rooms are very comfortable, kitchen has everything you need to cook (Waitrose just round corner for food), the bathroom is clean and spacious. Bedrooms were big and beds comfortable. The communal garden was quiet and peaceful.

We really enjoyed our stay at violet bank and hope to visit the apartment and Edinburgh again

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

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
