Fabulous Time!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful property in the centre of Edinburgh, i do not think you could get much closer!

We were a group of 6 female family members who wanted somewhere that was close to the shops and cocktail bars on George Street.

This place was ideal with it being a 10 second walk round the corner.

The flat itself was decorated to a high standard with lovely period features and i would definitely look to book this flat again on our next outing to Edinburgh.

Thanks Again,

Leanne

Beautiful, spacious, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 8 (including two small children) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. There was lots of space and light, plenty of towels and bedding, a lovely kitchen, and the location was great. We also really appreciated how responsive the owner was to our questions! We would highly recommend.

Such a BEAUTIFUL apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Williams apartment is really quite fantastic. The chefs kitchen is AMAAZING! The apartment is very very spacious with plenty of room for all 7 of us to sit together at the big kitchen table or on the comfy leather sofas and chairs! The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable and there were plenty of pillows supplied as well. The bathrooms were great and the big bathroom shower pressure was AWESOME! The up-keep of the apartment is really really good as well. Things were very clean and tidy. That being said, There are a just a few minor issues people should be aware of...

First off, in the city of Edinburgh they are not allowed to put satellite dishes on top the roofs of these historical buildings. And as William informed me, cable cannot be run to his specific apartment either. So as far as television goes, he has supplied the new Apple TV. It is a great option but may not be suitable for all. Also for you Americans...none of our HBOGO, SHOWTIME ANYTIME or really ANY American Channel apps will work over here or anywhere outside of the states for that matter. So just know that you will only be able to get BBC tv shows for free on Apple TV. You can stream live BBC news channel but that is about it. You can log into his appletv with your apple I.D. And password of course which will give you all of your own apps and such just know that Netflix and Hulu and ANY TV APP from the states will not work overseas. So basically, your tv watching is extremely limited. (We watched DOWNTON ABBY episodes!;)

Also...we had a terrible time getting the door off the street open every time we were coming back to the apartment. The big lock on that door was really really tough to unlock for some reason. So know that it will require patience and a lot of jiggling to get those keys to unlock that first door.

Aside from these very minor issues, the apartment was simply lovely and big and could not have been more perfect for my family of 7!! (Four adults, three teens!). You will LOVE this apartment should you choose to rent it!;) oh and hair dryers are provided for you Americans! ONE MORE THING...(for my fellow Americans again)...it is against their building codes to put outlets in bathrooms. So know that blow drying or curling hair or shaving has to be done in bedrooms or living areas etc. (I was SOO perplexed at first as to why there were no outlets in ANY bathrooms in London!! So I asked and I was told it is the building codes in England and the U.K. and also France!

Favorite accommodation of our trip

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything it says and more. It truly is a perfect location as you are close to everything; shops, restaurants, tourist sites etc. and even a beautiful view of the castle lit up at night right out the front door. We had plenty of room to hang out and relax even with 7 adults in the apartment. We had no problems with anything and owners/management are very quick to reply back to inquiries and booking arrangements. We took the train from York and the Waverly station is only 5 minutes away so a very short trip by cab once you arrive. I would stay here again if I return to Edinburgh. Loved it.

Excellent location with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly impressed with the location and standard of the property. As a group of 3 couples, we all fit easily within the flat and had more than enough space for ourselves. The two bathrooms and two dishwashers were excellent when catering for 6 people within the property. The pictures sadly do not do the property justice as the high ceilings and ample space are not easily captured in the photos. Besides the space, the quality of the appliances, mattresses and duvets were well noted. Everyone in our group slept incredibly well and it was not simply the Scottish whisky that helped.

On the first night, we did encounter an issue meeting with the key holder, but we did get access to the flat in a timely manner and they apologised profusely for the inconvenience. Reading previous reviews makes our occurrence an oddity and the owner was quick to make amends. In our opinion, he went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and also provided extra helping us find top restaurants and sights when in Edinburgh.

We would happily recommend both the flat and the company to anyone looking for a visit to Edinburgh. if we are booking again in Edinburgh I don't think we will look elsewhere.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Three +65 couples recently stayed here for three nights. We loved it! The location could not have been better. We did not have a car and walked to everything. We did not cook but any gourmet cook would love the kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms all great. You will not be disappointed.
