Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for your great care of the apartment, we had a really nice week there.

We all fell in love with the city. We hope to come back to Edinburgh some day.

I hope everything was okay with the way we left the apartment?

Kind regards,

Good Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were very satisfied with this location. There were a few stairs so be prepared. there was also one complaint about one of the double beds as the mattress was uncomfortable. But the location and convenience of the stay was great. The one shower was draining slowly and Gordon corrected it immediately.

Owner's Response: I am delighted to hear that the guests enjoyed their stay and found the location so convenient for everything, the main shower was draining a bit slowly and was easly fixed thanks to the guest letting me know about the problem, this is the first I have heard about one of the guest not being comfortable, all beds have the same medium firm mattress of the same make, maybe just a personal preference of this guest for a firmer or softer type , any other remarks we have had have been to say how comfortable the beds are, but we will check this out and replace if needed, many thanks to the guests for taking the time to leave a review and it was a pleasure to host you.

An enjoyable family gathering

The flat had everything we needed and was a good set up for the family members who came from all over. Gordon was helpful and made sure we could connect with him if we needed anything else.

Ideal Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great flat in a great neighbourhood, it was much closer to the city than I thought it would be, all guests were comfortable and there were more than enough facilities for the 12 of us! Was also clean and spacious. Picking up the keys was hassle free and on the way from the city centre. Fantastic experience all round, pictures don't do it justice!

Brilliant apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Gordon's apartment was wonderful. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. It was very easy to get into town and there were plenty of shops and local restaurants/cafes close by. Gordon was a wonderful host, very helpful and quick to respond to any queries.

We were a hen party of 14 and there was more than enough space for all of us. Would definitely recommend.

Schöne Tage in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

´dass unser Ausflug nach Edinburgh ein Erfolg war lag mit Sicherheit an der tollen Stadt , der perfekten Wohnung und letztendlich sicherlich auch am schönen Wetter.

Wir ,sieben Frauen aus der Umgebung Münchens verbrachten 3 Nächte in Gordon's Wohnung. Die Wohnung liegt sehr günstig. Supermarkt und Bushaltestellen befinden sich gleich um die Ecke. Auch zu Fuss ist das Stadtzentrum gut zu erreichen. Die Wohnung ist sauber und gut ausgestattet. Wir können sie für grössere Gruppen oder Familien empfehlen.
