“Nice location, very convenient.”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment was in a nice location to visit Edinburgh. However, the city was doing some construction at the time of our visit, which made it more difficult to easily get around, like back to the airport. There was plenty of grocery stores/markets near by. It was pretty hot when we visited and there is no a/c, and only one fan. The apartment could use more shades/blinds as Scotland has like 18-19 hours of daylight, so it was hard to adjust to sleeping when you could day light. It would have been better if there were blinds and shades that could have made the rooms darker to sleep in. Other than that, it was a joyful little place.

Yes, Edinburgh can be difficult to navigate due to ongoing tram works. However, the trams are due to go live at the end of 2013, and hopefully that will resolve the issue!

We have had an exceptional summer this year with temperatures rarely experienced over such a long spell. We don't think we will instal air conditioning, but will certainly give serious thought to putting up some blinds as you helpully suggest.

“Great”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This apartment was excellent. The owners, Mike & Sally, were thenselves on vacation but had their son, Iain, meet us at the apartment at about 2130 hours and he explained various things about the apartment. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again on our next trip to Edinburgh. Kitchen was compact but had all the necessary equipment. We coud not find directions for the washer/dryer so had some problems using the dryer function - probably because we are from the USA and had not seen this type before.

You sound as if you enjoyed your holiday as much as we did! We will remind Iain net time he stands in for us, to advise guests that instructions for all appliances are in a folder on the bookcase!
Glad you enjoyed the apartment despite this small inconvenience. We look forward to meeting you again on a future occasion.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Great, clean and tidy apartment, just far enough from the main road to be quiet, but not that far of a walk for a bus!. Handy parking on site, and the close proximity of the bus stop makes getting around Edinburgh very easy. Mike was very friendly and approachable, and nothing was a problem. We had a 3 year old with us, and the dvd/tv was great to keep her amused in the evening. Found the living room very comfortable just for sitting and relaxing, especially as it had been snowing. Overall the block was very quiet, and we heard no other noise the whole time. Highly recommended.
