Spacious, comfortable base for seeing Edinburgh

This apartment is well appointed and provides spacious, comfortable, warm (the weather was chilly during our August trip) accommodation. It is a couple of miles from town, but there are plenty of taxis around and a regular bus service from a stop right outside the apartment. We found the reception staff helpful and friendly. Had it not been for the musty, rotting smell in the main bathroom (an unrepaired leak?) which marred our comfort, this would have been a 5 star apartment for us.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

During Festival time allow plenty of time for getting through queuing traffic and finding parking especially when the weather is bad. We didn't - and ended up missing one of the shows we had booked because we just couldn't get through the traffic to the venue on time.

Fantastic Value

The accommodations were clean & spacious with fantastic views. 20 minute bus ride from the center of Edinburgh with the bus picking up right outside. Compared to other hotels I've stayed in Scotland this was excellent value for money and could sleep up to 8. 2bed/2bath luxury flat. Full kitchen.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the bus into Edinburgh to save time and money. Parking in the city is impossible. The Royal Yacht Brittania is only 5 minutes away and a great attraction for a low key day.
