When we first saw the property advertised on Trip Advisor we were quite taken with the flat. We ordered, and that in itself was a good process. We only paid a deposit, with the balance due just a short time before the vacation started. The owners, the Tivendales, were a friendly and helpful couple. Some things did not quite work out, but they corrected them immediately and I always say it's not about getting it right first time, it's about what happens if things aren't quite right, and we found the owners to be very good at sorting things out.

I have walking difficulties, however the flat is ground floor with everything on the same level. Ideal for me.

The flat was pleasant, we went there with our three (adult) daughters and a son-in-law, and the layout was perfect. A massive bed for my wife and I (she took one look and said "That bed has two postal codes!"), a twin room for the two single daughters and a double room for our other daughter and son-in-law. Everyone loved the flat - the layout, the facilities and the location.

The grill took a bit of figuring out, and even at the end we were not entirely sure how it worked. We just adjusted the two left dials until it came on.

It was a short distance from Tesco Extra, and the Tesco Supermarket was not much further. The tramway terminal was only a few minutes away. Yes it was uphill, but Edinburgh is built on seven hills, so if you visit the city prepare to walk up them half of the time. There was a comprehensive and delicious restaurant nearby called the 'Conan Doyle', and as you approached Princes Street (one 's' for two sons of the king, not two 's's for a daughter of the king) there were various fast food outlets as well as a Sainsbury Local.

We were presented with a bottle of wine, which the whole family enjoyed during tea time later in the vacation. Quite the friendly and professional touch.

Now to what I liked least, the cobbles I think. That's what you expect from roads built over a century ago, but it's not easy on the feet, and even harder on cases with wheels. The black taxis are, as usual, expensive, but you can phone the local 'private hire' taxi company with an easy phone number (I know I mustn't state the phone number but just repeat 5 as many times as you need after the Edinburgh code).

We had a wonderful time, thank you Tivendales, and we're sorry that we broke a cup while we were there.

Highly Recommended. If we visit Edinburgh in the future this is certainly a flat we will consider using again.
