    Near to city center, within walking distance. 3 bedrooms for our group are spacious. Good location.

    As it is situated at the junction of a busy traffic light, road noices cannot be shut out from the thin window glass. As one big bathroom works well with the shower, the other smaller shower room does not work well that I gave up half way showering my child because the water turns extremely cold and hot no matter how I tried to adjust. There is no toilet in the second bathroom, just washing sink and shower. All 6 people had to share one toilet. The kitchen was fairly equipted, they even provided us salt, coffee, tea, sugar, though no oil for cooking.

    I loved the fact that it was self-contained and very comfortable. Decor was modern without taking away from the original design of the building.

    There were 2 small things that I didn't like and that was to empty the rubbish you had to walk down the street to a small lane way and the other, I don't know how to work a Triton shower and couldn't work it out (there were no instructions in sight), so was unable to shower. My partner managed to work it out, but said the water pressure felt like a sand blaster. Not a big deal, as the rest of the apartment was great! Oh, another thing, not a complaint, more a suggestion...I Noticed that the duvet cover was new and unwashed. I have sensitive skin and the "dresing" used in new material causes aggravation to my skin. I would suggest laundering all linen to accommodate for sensitive skin types!

    Good location; helpful staff; very well equipped kitchen; washing machine; clean apartment

    Found the apartment very nice however previous occupant had broken the radiator in the bathroom - whilst this had been explained the heating had had to be switched off which meant a very cold shower :(

    Central to all sights we wanted to visit, and easy walking distance to city center, enjoyed our stay in the appartment.

    The flat was spacious, nicely decorated and close to the city centre.

    location is good,value for money,car parking is a problem, kitchen is small,kitchen facilities are good,washing machine is available,heating system is good

    the cleaning of outside area is very poor and no body cleans the apartment during the stay, i can recommend to stay if cleaning can be taken by the staff and at least once in a day staff visits the apartment to see the problems of the guests

    Great apartment, high celings, nice kitchen for cooking. Beds were comfortable.

    Refrigerator and freezer did not work.

    The apartsments were small but quaint, with a nice kitchen / sitting area and a large bedroom. The potential of using the space / garden outside was a bonus and once you get over the 25/30 minute trek from Waverly Station (not the advertised 20min - and to put this in perspective we're very sporty so not slow walkers!) then the flat is nicely placed - especially for walking about and too Arthurs seat.

    The Bathroom wasn't very nice, the sliding door to the bathroom is comically noisy and felt as if it were about to fall off. The apartments are not the advertised 20minutes walk, and in an not-so-nice an area. (As shown by the adjacent flat door having been stitched rather dogedly together again with metal after being kicked down)

    easy access to all amunities /taxi/buses shops but in a nice quite location and the apartment was huge and confortable

    went for a bath /shower and water was not very warm

  • Couple
    7.0

    The apartment was comfortable, quiet and had a door out to the back garden which meant we could let plenty of feeds air in

    The flat was a basement flat that had a damp smell to it. The skirting around the base of the kitchen kept falling off hurting our toes. We had to cleathe oven tray before using it, and the cutlery tray had bits of food in it.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The ease of getting the bus outside the door.

    The apartment was really dirty. There was mold on the shower head. The bedding and pillows were old and the towels smelled. I was really disappointed, it does not reflect bookings review rating. In fact I moved to a another hotel the 2nd night. The noise from the street and the bar below was really loud as the windows are old single paned and did not close properly.

  • Couple

    Very handy location, nice spacious apartment

    Despite asking in advance if there was a hairdryer and been told there were dryers in every room, unfortunately there actually wasn't! I had to go on Sunday morning searching for a travel hairdryer - not ideal!
