Superb 9.2 From 75 reviews

Good 6.0
Nicely appointed but some disappointing aspects
Very clean and quite well appointed apartment. However instructions for heating given however the radiators did not work. There were two portable heaters available but they were inadequate for the size of the room on a cold evening. Also the next morning I went out at 9.30 for a quick errand and returned at 10.00 to find a cleaner in the room well ahead of checkout time. Felt rushed and cleared out early.

Best Edinburgh festival
Although it was only for one night the flat was excellent and the children loved it thank you for helping our such a success

Comfortable stay
The apartment is spacious and comfortable. It is unmanned but support online is very efficient and helpful. Housekeeping service is good. A bit of a walk from city centre though.

Very Good 8.0
Everything was excellent except for the sofa bed, once you put it up the middle looks and feels like a triangle so the kids ended up sleeping on the floor as it was far more comfortable.
