Recent guest reviews

This place is in an excellent location, Tesco ( groceries, beer wine spirits) is a block away, Earthy ( organic vegetables,etc) is 150 feet away, walking distance to coffee, breakfast places, the Orchard pub, the bus stop is out front, M&S is across the street, the botanic gardens are a block and a half away. Close to everything but not in the middle of the tourist area

We stayed here for 4 nights in a 2-bedroom apartment in early August. It's about 20-30 min. walk to the city center (uphill unfortunately). There is a Tesco nearby, so it's very convenient for grocery shopping. Rooms are clean and homelike, but lack some essential items: very poor internet connection poor TV signal and it would black out all the time. It's nice to have a washing machine, but no dryer. The apartment doesn't provide free laundry detergent and they don't sell you any detergent either. You will have to go to Tesco and purchase an entire bag if you want to do laundry. Toiletry wise, the apartment only provides you with small bars of soap, no shampoo or anything else provided. Every one is given one bath towel and one hand towel during the entire duration of stay. If you need more towels, there will be a charge. The hotel does have an agreement with local taxi companies for a flat fee of 21 pounds to the airport. Reception is not open 24/7, I believe it closes at 8pm. So if you arrive late, you may want to make arrangements ahead of time.

The place felt like home; it was comfortable, fairly quiet and not far from City Center. Having keys for the front door as welll as your apartment felt much more welcoming than using a keycard. Everything worked well and most every ammentity was avaiilable; the only item missing was a hair dryer. Now, you should be aware that you receive your own telephone number, but do not have any method in receiving messages. If you have visitors, the admission phone light should be off to allow it ring. The only real gripes comes from the £10 a gay parking fee and 3% credit card fee (and if using a debit card - any fees your bank may charge).

My daughter and I stayed here for 9 days. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we would definitely stay here again. The walk to city centre was all uphill and took about 20 -25 minutes. Not bad if you are able to walk and the weather is good. A little much otherwise. During our stay, the staff was very helpful and even went out of their way to replace a fuse for our converter so we could charge our electronic devices. The night before we left, my daughter went to take a shower at 9:00pm and there was no hot water. Since the reception desk closed at 8:00, we were not able to get it fixed. Luckily, there was hot water in the morning! I think we shared the hot water heater with another apartment, and sometimes there was not enought hot water in the mornings.

I stayed there during a conference, so much better than a hotel!

Very nice hotel and clean with short distance to the location of our course petex house

We were in Edinburgh for 2weeks for holiday, sightseeing and fun. The advert was for a luxury furnished apt. Instead it was bare bones, old, needed updating and cleaning. They gave us 2 bath towels to last a week..We were supposed to get new towels every 3 days ..not so. We did go out and buy what we needed but we had expected more. The location was great. Buses come 1/2 block away and good restaurants are everywhere. The Circle and the Orchard are especially great. But we cannot recommend the Canon Court Apts.

Canon Mills is in a nice quiet location outside of the city center. A bus stop is located right in front of the complex with service to the city every 5 to 10 minites. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. The facilities are well maintained and comfortable. I plan on staying again my next visit to Edinburgh. Definitely beats hotel accomidations.
