We booked the Grove apartments as part of a two-night special offer with an East Coast train ticket; it was pretty cheap so we didn't really have high expectations for the apartment.
However it exceeded everything we had hoped for. A clean, attractive two bedroomed apartment with a living room and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment gave us everything (salt, sugar, tea bags, dishwasher and washing tablets, towels, tea towel etc) AND a generous quantity of breakfast was provided - milk, yoghurts, cereal, juice, toast, butter, jam. It was supposed to be one day's worth but easily lasted for two.
The apartment was warm (perhaps slightly too warm), comfortable and quiet. It was serviced even though we were only there for two nights, and we had no trouble from neighbouring occupants. The staff were warm and friendly.
Don't come and stay here if you are expecting the lap of luxury - the flat was comfortable and functional, not modernist and boutique. The furniture was pleasantly bland, but better than we expected from reading other reviews and taking the price into consideration.
As for location - well it's 20 minutes walk to Princes Street. Other reviewers seem to think this is too far to manage but we live in London so it felt close for us, even taking two small children and some really bad Scottish rain into consideration!
Thank you, Grove Apartments, for making our stay a really easy and pleasant one.
