Good 7.4 From 45 reviews

Fair 4.0
We booked for a trip to the fringe but sadly this place was disappointing, even for a student flat. Positives were the location and proximity to city events as well as the helpfulness of staff however several things in the studio flat we booked were broken, there was nothing more than warm water for the duration of our stay and the bed was terribly uncomfortable. Having not long graduated, I wasn’t expecting the Ritz but it didn’t feel like great value for money when being let out to the public and think I might pay that bit extra next time

Dream's come true.
I have been reading of the Fringe for 30 years, this year I joined a' Rock Choir' and performed there,it was amazing, everything I imagined, I was so pleased with the central position for the accommodation, it was so easy to access all of the entertainment. All of the staff at reception were happy and helpful, I would recommend it to anyone, and I hope to be with you next year.

Very Good 8.0
Good value in a great location
Good value accommodation right in the heart of the Fringe. My room had a private kitchen, ideal for breakfast and snacks. On the downside, the floor was not too clean, and the pillows were very thin, but overall l was pleased with my choice, and despite warnings to the contrary, it was not noisy at all!
