This apartment is in a great location and has everything that you need. It is spotlessly clean and the communication has been excellent.
We stayed here over a year ago, and given the pandemic decided Edinburgh would be a safer destination for our summer vacation this year. The apartment delivered on all fronts again, an oasis of calm in the centre of the city.
We've loved the appartement from the first moment. We've reached everything we've want to see by walking (with all the ups and downs it is fitnesstraining), but you can feel the wonderful atmosphere of this exiting city. We had only three days but we will co e back.
We loved staying in this comfortable stylish apartment & would definitely return. Plenty of space for two old school friends (Mums) and four teenagers. We recommend the Edinburgh Botanic Garden which is a 20 minute walk away along the Water of Leith river walk and has an excellent cafe. Also conveniently situated for Princes Street, the Royal Mile etc.
Albany Lane was perfect for our family of 4 on a short break to Edinburgh. It had everything we needed, plus lovely extras like flowers, biscuits and fruit on arrival. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, the beds were super comfortable and it was well thought out in terms of space. Lovely garden area and garage a bonus. Location was great for exploring the city, plus lots of great eateries just around the corner. Hope to be back soon!
Fantastic place to stay. I was there for 3 months and the place was very central in a beautiful road. The Greatbase team responded very quickly to any problems or queries I had with the place. Extremely lovely and welcoming neighbours which made the stay even more enjoyable. I recommend anyone to book with Greatbase for this home as you will not be disappointed.
We enjoy staying on this apartment Very close to everything what we need..It’s also very spacious and comfortable. Will definitely come back here again
Nice house, Ideal for a stay over Christmas. Facilities and equipment generally very good. Only issues were, the lack of a TV (we brought a small TV and connected it up to our laptop) and not a great amount of cutlery. Off road parking very useful, goor location close to Stockbridge.
Excellent location, a beautiful apartment near the city centre and near all the attractions. There’s a Tesco nearby as well as a Sainsbury’s so it’s very comfortable
I would highly recommend staying at Ramsey Gardens. All communication before arrival was great. The location was brilliant even though up the hill, it was well worth it! I booked for my Mums 50th Birthday and we were all sooo pleased with the appartment and was so spacious. It really had everything we needed including a nice welcome gift of shortbread, fruit, fresh flowers on the table and even milk put in the fridge. 2 bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath was really convenient for getting ready to head out. We all loved it and would absolutely stay again.
My party of four adults stayed for three days at the conclusion of a driving tour of Scotland, and we used Royal Mile Mansion #14 as our base for exploring Edinburgh's old town on foot. The location is nearly perfect for this purpose; about halfway along the Royal mile, in the middle of innumerable restaurants, pubs, and shops, and very near all public transit options. The accomodation itself was well appointed, comfortable, spacious, quiet, and possessed of an updated, old world charm. Of particular note were the city views and the extremely comfortable beds. All members of my party comm...more
After a long journey and informing of arrival time we had to wait for cleaner to finish disappointing! On arrival a small amount of milk and a packet of biscuits were left ,unused food in fridge /freezer and old fruit left in fruit bowl . No dishwashing liquid /tablets were left and dirty sponge/dish cloth were in the sink which were too dirty to use . Some kitchen paper towels would have been appropriate and appreciated . The washing machine was faulty and we were offered for somebody to look at it but we were not happy to have anybody in the apartment in the current situation .Stuart did...more
This little apartment was perfect for a few nights stay. Very basic but everything you need. Brilliant location, didn’t need to use the car at all while we were there and the Royal mile is only a 15 minute walk away.
Albany Street is a spacious, comfortable apartment in a convenient location. There are some areas, however, which we feel could be improved. 1 The kitchen taps are stiff and difficult to rotate. 2 The closing mechanism on the freezer door is not effective and one of the freezer drawer doors is missing 3 Locating channels on the TV remote is not always straightforward We understand that these may seem minor issues, however, for the rent, we would expect all appliances to be in full working order, then there would be no need, for example, to leave a note in the fridge about the freezer...more
Just loved Heriot Row. Great apartment away from the hustle and bustle and close to the lovely Stockbridge with it's great cafes and restaurants. A block away up the hill is George St, more lovely bars and restaurants. The apartment was a real treat, difficult to stay there without thinking about the property in it's hey day, wonderful large rooms, so elegant but a really great modern kitchen for all our needs. would really recommend!
Excellent value as the apartment was clean, modern and in a very good area. Parking was easy and Edinburgh's best sites are in walking distance
Booked an apartment to stay with friends for 2 nights. Ideal location on the Royal Mile. Great location, very comfortable rooms. Ideal for a short break and have already recommended Greatbase to friends.
We have been coming to Edinburgh for years but this was such a find. It felt like we were in our own private hideaway and yet we were a bus ride from the city centre and a short walk from lots of hustle and bustle. In fine weather it is the most lovely bold hole to sit in the garden or open up all the doors. We rebooked within hours of arriving and can't wait to get back for a winter experience in December.
Thank you to Katie and team for being so efficient with emails and queries. We had a really lovely stay in the house. It was really good to find basic necessities such as tea, coffee, milk, salt, pepper and oil when we arrived. There were lots of other bits and pieces too which made the place feel very welcoming. I would certainly stay again.
Blackie House 2 is a fabulous place for 2 people. The location couldn't be better, the interior is a work of art, and the views are fantastic! It's on the top, 6th, floor and the small but perfectly adequate elevator opens into the apartment. The historic location makes you feel you are in a special place each time you walk through the courtyard and a tour group is discussing the area. I would choose this place again and again.
Lovely bright flat in lively area, near good shops and walking distance into town centre. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Very near the lovely Water of Leith where we walked to the Modern Art museum.
Thank you for helping organise a wonderfully relaxing few days. The apartment was very well appointed
This is an ideal base, for two, for exploring Edinburgh. It's well equipped, spotlessly clean and very quiet. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the heating. The owner was quick to respond to my texts and I was swiftly moved to another flat just around the corner. I would certainly recommend this flat.
Very happy with Greatbase. Everything was perfect, location, cleanliness, comfort and customer service. We booked another apartment, but later needed a bigger one and the process was smooth and fast.
Location was excellent, apartment was very clean and had all the amenities that you would require, unfortunately too many stairs for elderly, and stairs needed a good clean
The flat was very spacious and comfortable to stay in, and felt very elegant and special. The location was also excellent, and was a perfect base for our honeymoon in Edinburgh. The bathroom layout, including the soaking tub, was a standout, and the bed and bedroom were very comfortable. The main negative was that, when we arrived, some of the utensils and cooking equipment in the kitchen were not fully clean, but we imagine that was because often guests did not choose to cook much in the apartment. Similarly, all the cooking oils were either fully run-out or quite a few years out-of-date,...more
Handy location for both the station and the city centre. Lovely views. Some noise from passing sirens but the doubleglazing takes care of the worst of it. Comfortable, well furnished, nice soft beds, well equipped kitchen except for lack of corkscrew! (hopefully now sorted). You do need to be reasonably fit to manage the four flights of stairs.
Very easy booking system. Very efficient service and given all we needed with immediate response when required. Comfortable - with all that was needed for a short stay in a central location.
Inside much better than outside. Good location thoughtful hosts. A little dated in the bedrooms but comfortable and very clean. Would stay again
This is an attractive apartment which has many useful features including a dishwasher, washing machine, television, wifi. It is also a close to restaurants, shops, the castle, the university, and the train station. The only drawback is that the apartment is very small, especially when the fold-away bed is open. With 2 people it is very difficult to move around the room.
