“Great Location Tired Flat”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The location of this flat couldn't be better but be prepared for four flights of stairs (no lift) to get to it. The accommodation is adequate and reasonably clean. The shower is an old over the bath affair that barely manages much more than a dribble. The whole place need a lick of paint and new carpets (these were badly stained and frayed) and the kitchen needs to be re equipped with some reasonable china and glassware (only 2 mismatched old wine glasses to be found). We stayed in Festival week and expect to be overcharged but even in a normal week at normal rent this place could really do with some TLC

Management Response
29 Aug 2016
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and we're glad that you enjoyed the location. The Victoria tenement flats in the Old Town of Edinburgh tend not to have lifts installed because of the age and layout of the buildings. The shower operates via a combi-boiler and we're checking the incoming water pressure to ensure that this is back up to standards. The carpets were recently replaced throughout and are soon due for their periodic shampoo, but we have brought the date of this forward. We will also check the china and glassware to ensure that the correct number of each are available.

“Brilliant central location, virtually on the Royal Mile.”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great little flat for two and copes well with four. Being on the forth floor, there are lovely views of Edinburgh from the lounge and even better views from the roof garden. Clean, well equipped, good wifi and unbeatable location.

“Perfect location.”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is the perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh old town. A top floor flat with fantastic views across the city roof tops. We arrived on a cold day to find a warm and welcoming flat. It was comfortable and cosy throughout and everything worked well. There was good communication with the owner before and during our trip and the strange problem we had with the kitchen floor was rectified without question. There is so much to see and do all within a walking distance of this great little flat. The only thing that might possibly put visitors off would be the 79 steps up to the flat, but we enjoyed the exercise! No. 1, the pub on the corner, just across the road is excellent.

“Cozy with view”
Reviewed 27 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were delighted with this flat on the top floor of a fine old building in Old Town, convenient walking distance from train station, castle, museums, and all the best Edinburgh sights. Excellent choice of good restaurants, pubs, and shops nearby. Does require walking up 4 flights but the grand view (and rooftop terrace) are your reward.

This is a great flat and an excellent location for exploring this beautiful city either during the festival or at any other time of year. It had everything we needed including some wonderful welcoming touches. The only drawback is the four flights of stairs!
