Great stay, close to city

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I stayed here with our 3 teenagers for a family reunion and our mom's 75th bday celebration. Fari and Tracy were very friendly and accommodating before we even arrived. The pamphlets left in the flat were very helpful too. The bus system runs quite often and the bus stop is right up the block. They also left the number to a taxi company and we also used them. They were also very quick and courteous. The teenagers were thrilled with the fast wifi. Our experience overall was excellent. I would definately stay here again.

Enjoyable, lovely and, wel located apartment

  • 4 of 5

We do fully agree with all the positive description as mentionend hithertoo.

What we can add that apart from the many excelents events during the Edinburgh International Festival, the neigbourhoud of Morningside has many things to offer from an well equiped supermarket to many very pleasant restaurants. For cycle fans, it is a perfect point of departure. We thank Tracy en Farsi for their very warm wellcome and good care during our 3 week stay and certainly hope to come again!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The place is a little dated, but the accommodations were perfect for what we needed. Tracy (Fari's wife) was extremely pleasant. She also gave us some provisions to start the morning with (milk, instant coffee, etc...). Once we figured out how to use the bus system (if you do a lot of traveling about - the 'all-day' bus pass for 4 lbs. works out wonderfully) having the bus stop about a block away was the best!!!

I also took advantage of the little reading room (that's what we called it). When everyone else was busy getting ready, I could go in there for a little semi-privacy. Thanks again Fari & Tracy.
