“Absolutely Excellent”
Reviewed 4 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Ideally positioned in Perth with the most fabulous views of the River Tay.

The welcome from Marie and the food etc that was given to me was totally unexpected but nonetheless very kind and thoughtful of her.

Nothing was too much trouble for Marie.

A beautifully fitted apartment and ideal for a couple or a single person.

I would not hesitate to use this apartment again.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The apartment is situated on the first floor along the river Tay. Spacious apartment very beautifully decorated.
When we arrived Marie met us at the apartment - showed us around and answered any questions about the local area. She had left some essentials in the apartment (Home made bread, four pints of milk, butter and fresh fruit) Much more than the usual basics. Extra towels and duvets were available if required.
I was clearly told not to worry about hoovering or stripping the bed before I left. :)
The apartment is 5 minutes walk into town and was quiet and peaceful. We had a DVD and Virgin TV and free wi-fi if required but spent much of the time watching the view and wildlife on the river - we saw the otters but no beavers or seals.
The parking outside the flat was £1 an hour (max 4hrs) but we were able to park overnight and on Sundays for free. The South inch car park was a 2 minute walk along the river and was 50p an hour or £4 all day - safe and secure for the car.
The apartment was within walking distance of the local parks - south Inch, North inch and the beautiful gardens across the river - perfect for an early morning or evening stroll.
The apartment is warm and cosy and for myself who always has the heating on during our September stays in Scotland I only needed it one slightly chilly evening.
It was easy to contact Marie and pay over the phone by card, £100 deposit and then the balance when we got there.
Thank You Marie for a lovely stay

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. It is clean, comfortable, well-equipped and close to the centre of Perth with shops, good restaurants, theatre, concert-hall, museum, all within easy walking distance.The stunning views over the river to the woodland park on Kinnoull hill which is a delight for walkers make this apartment very special. Marie, the owner, made everything easy from start to finish and welcomed us with a loaf of freshly baked bread...! We will definitely be back. Thank you, Marie!

“It is good flat but bad experience”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were on our holiday and stayed for one week. The flat is good. But our experience was bad. Undeliberately, we caused some marks on the wooden surface of the kitchen by the pout . Beacuase it's is wood , it is sensitive . The housekeeper was very difficult towards my wife and me and charged us 100 £. It is our mistake but the treatment we got was not expected. We left the lovely Perth with sad feelings. Apart from this situation, I will give this flat five star.

All guests, whom I treat with the utmost respect, are made fully aware of the heat resistant work top savers in place to safeguard the oak work top. On collection of the keys extensive,deep burn marks were found. Although this had happened two days in to a seven day let I was not informed as no problem was deemed to have occurred. This damage, along with the general condition ,left my property unlettable until the high standards rightly expected and enjoyed at riverside apartment could be resumed.

What can I say that has not already been said, but I'm going to anyway :-)
My wife and I rented for a week, in summary:
Wonderful view of the river Tay and Kinnoull Hill from all windows.
Marie (the owner) was there to welcome us, lovely lady.
The apartment is nicely decorated, comfortable, well equipped, great shower.
Great location, shops and restaurants just a few minutes walk, we enjoyed dining at "The Post Box" and "Deans".
Perfect to use as a base for exploring central Scotland.
Highly recommended, would rent again.

I'm always reluctant to write a review about a place I really liked in case it becomes difficult to rent it again, but if you want to rent a one bedroom apartment in Perth right beside the centre with fabulous views over the River Tay, then book now! We live in London and it beats me why anyone wants to spend a fortune staring at the Thames. The Tay is infinitely more beautiful. Everything about the apartment was great and Marie, the owner, could not have been more helpful. It's a long time since we last visited Perth and we were amazed at the quality of the restaurants now. Perth is quiet at night but it is a great base for visiting the surrounding area, with its breathtaking scenery. We reckon, as Scots, that Perthshire is the most beautiful area

of Scotland. The station is nearby and Glasgow and Edinburgh are within easy reach by train (both about an hour away). St Andrews, Dundee and the East Coast are all easily accessible too. The only pain is parking in Perth. The council are VERY anti cars and make life difficult. Mention the council to the local shopkeepers and you will have a very interesting and animated conversation. There are long- stay car parks near the flat, but perhaps you would be
better hiring as and when you need to save you the inconvenience . Perth has some very good high quality shops by the way.
Back to the apartment. Recommended? - 100% and Marie is the perfect hostess. Thanks for
a great stay. We will be back.

The owner gave us a very warm, personal welcome. My husband has Parkinson's disease so I particularly appreciated the way she assisted us with our bags and helped us settle in after our long journey from Perth, Western Australia!

We were very fortunate with the weather during our stay at Riverside Apartment, and it was enjoyable to sit in the sunshine every morning having our breakfast, gazing out on the beautiful River Tay and hills beyond.

The apartment is very spacious and attractive, with plenty of storage space and a very comfortable bed. We found the shower particularly good, and the kitchen extremely well-equipped.

It was a great advantage for us, not having a car, to be so centrally located. We were able to reach Marks & Spencer and other useful shops with ease, and it was a level walk to all the central city attractions and several lovely parks.

Liked best: The warm welcome on arrival, and the VIEWS.
Liked least: There was no lift due to it being a listed building, so not ideal for a person who finds stairs difficult.
