Edinburgh vacation

  • 5 of 5

Gavin's place was wonderful. If you are visiting Edinburgh, you cannot ask for anything better. It is convenient to all the "must-see" attractions of the city. I cannot recommend it enough. It is wonderful. If I have the opportunity to visit Edinburgh again, I certainly hope Gavin's apartment is available.

Great location and property, any service would have been nice.

  • 3 of 5

Great location, though a little loud in the front bedroom at night if you like to go to bed before 2am (not a major concern for us as we were either out or exausted and sound a sleep.

Apartment has everything that you will need in the kitchen including laundry, soaps and all included.

TV and wifi were great too, though the remotes were a bit tempermental.

Check in and check out could not have been smoother.

Owner was very responsive to preliminary questions and with suggestions for restaurants when we asked.

Once the bathroom light burned out, however, no response from him. Same thing when the radiators stopped working. Same thing when we left something in the apartment after checking out.
