Lovely accommodation. Easy booking process. Owner of property kept in contact with us by e mail to ensure everything was ok for us on arrival. 15/20 min walk to centre entering at Grey Friars area so no car required. Will definitely recommend to friends.
My only bad point is having to pay security deposit so far upfront before arrival then again having to wait for £250 Security deposit refunded. I think this should be done within 24 hrs. we have had an email to advise it was refunded yesterday but still waiting for it to show on our account which I presume will maybe take a further 3 days to hit the bank

Efficient booking system and arrangements for arriving and departing well managed. However, why the third degree about who we are etc!

Product

A nice flat newly decorated with lots of stuff in the cupboards. Only one slight issue the radiator in the main bedroom is not big enough to heat the room warm enough.

Although they were advertising the apartment we used, all our interaction was with the owner (all of which was excellent. So they did nothing wrong, they just didn't do as much as usual. I would recommend them and I would use them again.

Used this for many years but are now using an basement apartment across town.

Marchmont Main Door @ The Meadows

My first impressions were really good. As a family of five, I want furniture which is practical and not easily marked so I am not worrying all holiday. Practical leather sofas, solid kitchen furniture and wooden floors all made this easier. It was spacious, high ceilings and surprisingly well sound proof (we were staying over Easter when the students were away but I imagine at other times there would be more noise late at night at the weekends). Everything was very clean and the tempur mattresses were amazingly comfortable. We loved the accommodation - it was spacious, clean, practical and comfortable.

It is the little touches that made the difference. We loved having complimentary luxury Scottish smellies to use on holiday - and the children bathed in bubbles whilst I had the time to moisturise long neglected skin. We also appreciated fresh filter coffee and Scottish biscuits on arrival - very welcome after a four hour journey in the heat. I think it is very important to have washing up liquid, toilet rolls and even a little washing powder in the accommodation and this was all provided - as were ample supply of fresh towels, clean linen and tea towels.

Good communication by your staff who answered all queries promptly. All in all, an excellent service. I would also like to say I love the fact you collect and respond to feedback.

The atmosphere was fantastic. The location regarding the center was convenient. The big park was close as well as local food stores. The shops are open between 7AM to 11PM what was very convenient.

Everything went very smoothly.

The apartment was beautifully furnished, clean and very spacious. We really appreciated the many towels and the tea & coffee basket, as well as the cosy fireplace. Nice neighbourhood within walking distance of the Old Town.

We were really happy about the service provided. From the time we made the booking to the day of arrival, we got rapid response to our e-mails. Upon arrival, Anne Marie arrived just as we did, and we got a tour of the flat. It was nice that she took time to tell us about both the apartment and the neighbourhood.

The apartment was very spacious for our family and everything was in good working order. The kitchen was very nice. We made supper there several nights. the living room was comfortable for family and we enjoyed it's character. It was great to have internet access and lovely extra's such as games, books,shampoo and bath gel. I am sure we will try and rent this apartment again when we come to Scotland.

Contacts by phone and e-mail were responded to very quickly and Anne Marie was very nice and explained everything thoroughly when we checked in. No surprises and expectations were surpassed. Sue Muenchow September 2010
