This was our first trip to Edinburgh for the Tattoo & the Festival. Location was superb 5 mins from the castle and beside everything else. Trouble was our apartment no 5 was shabby, furnishings soiled , settee had burn marks on upholstery, and was covered in hairs. paintwork and wall coverings scuffed. Place was clean enough but just tired looking and in need of re-furbishment, certainly not 5 star as advertised .We spent most of the time outdoors. Staff at reception very pleasant but they just check you in and out, apartment was not serviced at all during our 2 nights stay. Not suitable for even very fit seniors, stone stairs very narrow and steep, 39 to our 2nd floor rooms! Too expensive at almost £600 for two nights in 2 -3 star accommodation very disappointing. Would choose this location but not this accommodation for our next visit.
