“Brilliant apartment for family”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had a lovely Christmas with all the family in the apartment, i.e. we two and Dad in a wheel chair, Son, Daughter- in- law and 12 week old Grandson and Daughter and Husband. Half way through the week,son and daughter in law and baby left and Sister and Husband took over their bedroom with fresh linen supplied by Beverly. 3 of the bedrooms were spacious and all the beds very comfortable.We had lots of room and the flat never felt over crowded.The facilities in the flat were were excellent with space to store food in the fridge and freezer and the oven was adequate to cook a good Christmas dinner. Access to the flat was easy and it was in a good area for restaurants especially "Mia" just up the road. We loved the pool which was warm enough in the evenings for the baby to enjoy a splash. Altogether we had a wonderful time and appreciated all the help by email that we got from Beverley. We would recommend this apartment as a spacious well maintained and comfortable place to stay and visit Edinburgh.

“This is a great apartment, especially for groups..”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is a great apartment, especially for groups. Its located close to Waverley Railway Station and is within walking distance of the main attractions. I stayed here with 7 friends and we felt there was plenty of room for all of us. We were delighted with the apartment as its clean, modern, light and airy. The swimming pool is a good-size and clean and is conveniently situated within the building. The owner, Bev was very helpful from beginning to end. We would definitely stay here again..

“Great stay, great location.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a girly weekend away. It was perfect. All with our own rooms. The decor was tasteful and modern throughout, with everything we needed - including a couple of much needed tea bags upon arrival. It was clean and tidy. The location was great; just a couple minutes to the local supermarket to buy essentials as well as walking distance (20-25 minutes) to the city centre and the Castle. If you didn't fancy walking the cost of a taxi was negligible. There was a small gym and pool if we fancied some exercise plus an outdoor garden with access to a BBQ for those warmer evenings. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely be back.

“Beautiful, well presented apartment!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at James Square apartment with my family in July and we all had an absolutely fabulous time. The apartment is exceptionally clean and extremely well presented. You could truly call it a 'home from home' as your every need is catered for.
We have a small baby and the owners John & Beverly did everything they could to ensure we didn't have to take unneccessary items from home such as travel cot and high chair for his use.
The apartment block is safe and secure and in a good location. All of the major sights are within a walk/bus/tram or short car journey away. The transport links are all on your doorstep and we managed to see everything we had planned to on our trip.
The tram from the airport takes you straight to Haymarket and the apartment is just a short walk from the stop.
This apartment was a 'lucky find' & we were so pleased to have had the pleasure of staying here.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we would definately recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in Edinburgh.
Hopefully, one day, not too far away - 'We'll be back'
