All fine apart from the deposit arrangements - why not return funds immediately, or better still not debit unless needed..

Product

Great apartment, very well equipped and furnished to a high standard, with lots of thoughtful touches that made us very comfortable.

Our response

Dear guest,
Thank you so much for leaving us this lovely review and for being such great guests.
We are really grateful that you enjoyed your stay and both the owner and ourselves hope to welcoming you all again soon.
About the damage deposit, we really appreciate your valuable feedback. Although being a local business is what makes us special, we don't have the facilities of big chains and we require a damage deposit to keep owners' homes safe. We refund the deposit 7 days after check-out to investigate any claims of damages and secure the best outcome for all parties involved.
All the best

The apartment was superb. Well appointed and spotlessly clean. It was quiet all week.
The location for us, was perfect, a 10 minute stroll into town, through the Meadows was a treat. The welcome gift and flowers from Alison were a lovely touch. Simon, Jude, Beth and Livvy.

The apartment itself was very well kitted out and very comfortable (The pillows especially.)

The poisition is only a quick bus/taxi ride away from city centre. The location is super with “the Swamy” local pub and a well stocked Tesco express within 50 yards.

Service

The staff were very helpful and sensible on this booking of an appartment in Edinburgh and on previous bookings we have made through them. This time they misled us over the fact that the property was in a noisy part of town not as we had been told a quiet area. In fact it turned out to be in the middle of construction works. When we complained, TEA staff were extremely efficient in sorting out our problem and we were refunded part of the rental. Obviously it would have been better not to have the problem and TEA should consider investigating the properties they let more carefully. We will certainly look at what TEA has to offer on our next visit to Edinburgh.

Product

The appartment was very large and well equipped but although we had specifically enquired whethr it was in a quiet area it turned out to be on a bus route and fairly noisy. Even more so when the construction work started next door. This was sorted out very efficiently by TEA but really we would have preferred a quieter place from the beginning. TEA should have done a bit more due diligence into the place they were letting.

I found Edinburgh Address staff one of the most organized and caring group I've ever met. From the initial inquiry to the farewell wishes, they have always been helpful, nice and very precise. The team has always tried to do the extra mile to assure us the best service and to make not only our stay but in general our Scottish experience as something that we could not forget. Although they were not supposed to, they help and support us a lot to find a new accommodation at the end of our stay. They acted with great transparency and utmost honesty throughout our stay.

Product

stayed here for two months with my wife and our 2 years old child while relocating in Edinburgh. We were delighted with the apartment and with the constant support received by all the staff members.

The apartment is in an Ideal location only 20 minute walk to Royal Mile and Princes Street. The area is highly served by many different bus lines and there are a lot of restaurants and shops neraby.
The apartment is very comfortable with everything you may need. Tasteful furnishings and lovely touches such as fresh flowers, useful information and quality toiletries. All the things are very clean and in perfect state. Everything point out a great attention to detail and feel you cared.

The owner was very welcoming and ensured that everything was ready for us. The Edinburgh address staff was always there and everyone was very supporting. Consideing we stayed two months and we faced a lot of issues, they spent a lot of efforts and helped us a lot. They were really priceless.

I would not hesitate to recommend the apartement and in general to book with this group to anyone looking for a great accommodation in Edinburgh.

"Tasteful Comfort in a Good Location

Left on Jan 16, 2016 for a stay in Dec 2015
This apartment had the best equipped kitchen we have experienced. The rooms were well appointed and decorated to make them comfortable, yet roomy.
We really appreciated the washer/dryer! The water colours on the walls, which we assume were done by the owner, were lovely.
The owner greeted us with a delightful winter bouquet and mince tarts, which made us feel very welcomed.. We had fun food shopping in the area and appreciated the owner's recommendations.
We walked everywhere from the apartment. Edinburgh Address staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with in processing the rental and very prompt with the return of our deposit."

The owner that met us at the property was very helpful giving sound advice on how to use internal appliances, local amenities and transport links. Service proved by The Edinburgh Address was of a high standard. Staff were very helpful when contacted with queries."

The Causewayside Apartment @ Newington

The apartment was very good value and worked very well for us, right size, location spot on, having the extras such as tea, dish washing soap, clothing detergents etc made a huge difference as we did not need to purchase that. Loved the Organic store/cafe round the corner and certainly found buses and taxi's worked very well for us definitely did not need a car.

Was fantastic to be met by the owner Alison and her explanation on how everything worked was a great help especially coming from a different country where little things like garbage sorting etc is often very different. We loved our stay in the apartment it was like a home from home.

Very good value. I think there is no way to improve the acommodation it was impressive. In our opinion the apartment it's great and it was better than we expected so for us it's a 10 over 10. Every thing related to payment, access to the apartment, getting the keys was easy and friendly, we're very happy.

"The apartment was delightful! Light and airy, well furnished, and very well resourced. A real home from home. A little way out of the centre, but then we needed the exercise, so no problems.
Good, efficient service with regards to communication. The provision of toiletries, tea and coffee, salt and pepper, and even a little olive oil and red wine vinegar was much appreciated."

"When we arrived at the apartment we were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of the overall apartment. It had such a homely feel that we found it to be perfect. It was also extremely well equipped and had all of the essentials that we required. The apartment had a modern décor and was the perfect accommodation for celebrating the Hogmany festival. I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone travelling to Edinburgh and hopefully I will be personally re-booking the apartment when I am next in Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh Address were a hassle free service who provided over and beyond what we expected. The flat was of a very high standard and all of our requests such as late check in & late check out were completed without a single problem. The apartment was so amazing that I actually wish I lived there!! I would like to thank all of the Edinburgh address team for making our Hogmany and my 25th Birthday such a fantastic break."

Local amenities were more than adequate for day to day bits and bobs and location was ideal, close enough to city centre for easy visiting but far enough away for quieter evenings. The apartment was kitted out to a very high standard and was spotless. Will definitely recommend to friends and family."

"We just returned from our vacation to England, Scotland, France and Italy. While away we stayed at five different self catering accomodations. My entire family agrees (6 of us) that the Causwayside was the best of all of them. The apartment was clean, newly renovated, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh flowers and fruit we received on our arrival made for a warm welcome and the specialty bars of soap and lotions in the bathroom gave a pampered feel to the place. It was easy to get to by public transit (however the bus line 42 schedule is a bit long between buses but that is not the reponsibility of the apartment owner) and if necessary, it can be walked from downtown. This apartment is perfect for a family of 4 but our family of six was comfortable in the space making use of the pull out sofa bed. After being in many other places, this was great value for the money and our only regret was that we didn't spend mor time here. We would definitely go back and recommend to our friends."
