    A bright, spacious and comfortable flat which made an excellent base for a trip to Edinburgh. Open views, good beds and nice showers. This newly developed area has several shops and restaurants in the nearby mall. The slightly narrow parking space in the garage was very useful for us.

    I just want to say that we had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It was almost perfect…. great views plenty of space …being a perfectionist i would suggest that the apartment needs some reading lamps and a couple of large pans for pasta …otherwise spot on ! Thank you

    We used the flat as a base for a weekend in Edinburgh and it was perfect. Stunning views and easy links into the city using public transport. The whole flat is tastefully decorated with all the amenities you need and the comfortable and spacious bedrooms were much appreciated at the end of busy days. Would go back in a heartbeat.
