Amazing, could not fault the property, the service, the food or the location. 5*+ in all regards. Total character property, easily walkable to everywhere. Comfortable and all amenities taken care of, you could easily stay here for several months. The staff were wonderful and the apartment was spotless. The continental breakfast was pure quality, lots of it and beautifully presented in a wicker hamper.

Gorgeous rooms, let down by creaking floorboards, dangerous toaster and 500yrd walk to the room in the pouring rain

The toaster is very dangerous, the floors creak pretty badly and the sofa with the cushions really isn’t comfy. But the rooms are gorgeous the location is great and views are superb.

Be prepared for a 500yard walk from reception to your room in some cases, and as this was in the pouring rain far from ideal!

A luxurious treat to stay in!

We came to Edinburgh for a long weekend treat and so wanted to stay somewhere special. We where not disappointed, on arrival a little early the staff where more than happy to store our luggage for us so we could go off to begin exploring. Once our room was ready we received a call to let us know and then we where shown to our Penthouse Apartment! The apartment was much bigger than we had expected and the views from all windows where beautiful. The kitchen and living room where equipped with everything you might need for your stay along with the bathroom having all essentials included. The roll top bath and walk-in shower where bliss after a long day exploring and the TV in the bathroom gave it such a luxurious feel. The bedroom was again equipped with plenty of storage and housed the biggest most comfortable bed we’ve ever slept in. The whole apartment was very quiet and we didn’t see or hear any other guests throughout our stay. We would highly recommend the apartments to anybody travelling and wanting that extra special touch ❤️
