Reviewed 9 November 2013

We booked our stay here just a few days before leaving for Edinburgh from Cork, Ireland. The reason we chose the apartment was due to the cost being about the same compared to a Bed & Breakfast and cheaper then any hotel stay for our trip there. I am so glad we booked it too! It was well worth the...

Thank you, so much, for taking the time to post such a lovely review, it sounds like you had a great time and made the most of your time in Edinburgh and the surrounds. Not many visitors make it to Cramond, which is very pretty! We look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon.

This is a great place to stay - all the benefits of a hotel suite with the privacy of your own flat. The location is perfect, close to the city centre but a couple of minutes from the main road so very quiet at night. There are groceries round the corner and lots of tempting restaurants, cafes and bars within...

We are into our 4th day if a 6 day stay at the apartment. We have absolutely loved it. There has been no complaints. Room service is awesome.

We spent 2 nights in these brilliant apartments on a recent visit to Edinburgh and to visit family. They exceeded our expectations, they were spotlessly clean and decorated extremely tastefully. They are located in a very quiet area but still close enough to explore the city of Edinburgh.
