“Pretty, petit and perfect”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

September 2013

Our Stay here in this apartment was for a last minutiae get away.

From the moment we arrived this was a great experience
Clean throughout and with all the essentials you would expect and more.

Angela contacted us and made ready the apartment even leaving cold water and fresh milk in the fridge ready for our arrival, which was a lovely most appreciated touch after a long journey to Aberdeen.

The apartment is compact but lacks nothing. A mini home from home in a perfect central location within walking distance of city centre shops, resteraunts, amenities and attractions.

Set back from the road this little gem is so quiet in the evening and comes with ample parking.

I would defiantly reccomend to friends and would stay here again without hesitation.

Thank you to Angela for everything.

Michelle :)

Great ,comfortable ,excellent location to city center and to Aberdeen Sports Village.
I stayed with my family in a 2 bedroom appartment number 7 . Everything that we needed was there , beds were clean and couldn't think of any better accomodation than this place.
I will sure recommend it to all my friends and will make sure to book here every holiday.
Special thanks to Angela, the owner who was very helpful .

Lovely building set back from the street. Good location for beach and shops. Clean, comfortable accommodation with a modern interior. Fully equipped kitchen. Lovely fresh smell from the bed linen and towels. Free on site parking. Only negative point to mention was the noisy central heating system which sounded like doors banging. This would happen during the night which disturbed our sleep more often than not. However, we would be happy to stay here again.

Lovely, clean, comfortable accommodation. Easy to find even though no reception dont let this put you off as instructions for access easy and there is a mobile number to contact with any problems. Our first time,booked through late rooms and definitely be back.went with my teenagers free wifi a plus and found loads to do. Great having an apartment rather than just a room.

Reviewed 2 April 2013

I travelled here with my two children (7 & 3) for a 5 night stay. I had booked a one-bedroom apartment with a sofa bed but we ended up in a two- bedroom (no 17) which was a bonus. The accommodation was easy to find from the information texted to me by Angela (the owner) and it was very quick to heat up once in the property (just what we needed on a chilly March night)
We arrived very late in the evening but had managed to get some provisions to keep us going. However, there was already some fresh milk in the fridge for us and we could have purchased some other bits and pieces to use until we were able to go to the large Morrisons store that is a mere 2 minute walk away.
The accommodation itself was very spacious, spotlessly clean ( I usually feel the need to wash cutlery, cups, plates, etc., when I stay in self-catering accommodation but I did not find it necessary at all here), and had absolutely everything I needed for a comfortable stay. There was a washing machine and a drying frame to use and even a small, enclosed patio area out the back where I could have dried my washing if the weather had been nicer (unfortunately, we had snow but that's Aberdeen in March for you). An iPod docking (and charging) station was an added bonus. The bathroom was lovely with plenty of fluffy towels (large in size too) and the shower was nice and powerful!
Angela was very helpful and on hand to answer any queries I may have had about the accommodation. There was a designated parking space too right outside the flat and ample guest space, if required.
I would certainly not hesitate in booking at the Magellan again in the future and price-wise it was significantly better value than any other luxury, serviced apartments I had looked at before booking (significantly!!)

Fabulous in every way
Booked via Angela and it was perfect from start to finish. Smooth competent service. Every thing you could think of was provided in the apartment. The apartment was spotless and cupboards were well stocked. Clean comfortable beds. Great heating system. Every appliance in good working order. The apartment is in a central location. We could not have asked for better.
Excellent communication from Angela from booking until check out. This was our second stay. We shall definitely be back. Many thanks. Eithne.

Room Tip: Check the web site. Give Angela a ring and she will help you.

First class accommodation from start to finish. Excellent service, easy check-in, great parking, access, and location. Apartment was just perfect, layout, size, location, well equipped. Had a fantastic weekend in this superb 'home-from-home', would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend to others. Thank you Magellan, I loved it ... much better than a hotel-stay. x
