Guestbook reviews

Thank you for welcoming us into this lovely apartment during our time in Edinburgh. Being able to stay in the apartment whilst our wife/mother had an operation at the Western General Hospital made things so much easier. We will all be using and recommending to all for future visits. Thank you again staying here made a big difference.

What a lovely find for us to spend a family weekend in Edinburgh with our 3 adult daughters. Lovely place, so light and spacious, private and quiet. Personal welcome, nice touch to have a welcome pack and fresh flowers - so homely!! We'll definitely recommend to others and try to return again soon! It's 21 years since we visited Edinburgh and had forgotten how lovely and special it is - we won't wait as long to return!!!

We came to Edinburgh for the first time to explore Scotland with other family members. This was a wonderful base of operations. The house is lovely and very comfortable. We mostly appreciated all of the attention to detail that you put into it. We definitely plan to return.
