Everything was perfect about the apartment, except that we are used to king size beds, and the small bedroom only held a double, which made sleeping difficult. There were problems with the heating system, but these were attended to with alacrity by the engineer (most helpful) and the agent, who is a lovely lady who appears to move at the speed of light! I cannot speak highly enough of this place and of the service we received - if only there were a king size bed, we would wish to return .....
The flat at 20/1 Royal Circus combined superb location with stylish, comfortable and delightful amenities. Go one way and you are in Stockbridge with its river, shoping, restaurants, cafes and Sunday market. Go the other way and you have Charlotte Square for the Book Festival, the Usher Hall, the Traverse, the Royal Lyceum Theatre, the FilmHouse. Really just about all of Edinburgh is within walking distance. Perfect. We plan to return.
Heating system controls too complicated. Downstairs rather chilly. No provision for recycling. Otherwise great.
Delightful accommodation in a fantastic location. House immaculate with plenty of essential bathroom items and refreshments. Comfortable beds and good quality linen and towels. Access to house was made easy by your staff and Maeve was extremely helpful on arrival. Will certainly return to Edinburgh and book this house in Circle Lane again, will also recommend to friends and family. The fresh flowers was a lovely gesture.
Exceptional service, helping us book ground transportation from the airport and finding a great brunch spot (The Olive Branch) to start our trip. There was a bowl of fresh fruit and shortbread on the table, milk in the refrigerator and coffee in the cupboard. Outstanding all around. We were caught slightly off-guard by the timer in the closet that controlled the heating system, but after a little help from our fellow guests we were once again comfortable throughout the day and night.
We had a wonderful 3 days in this greatbase apartment, it has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The location is excellent close to all amenities.
The location is absolutely perfect! And the decor is so cool. It’s very spacious and kitchen is well equipped. We loved this place except for the beds. Mine was so soft that when I laid down my feet felt elevated making sleeping less than comfortable. Also, we couldn’t get clothes dry in the washer/dryer. Could have been user error but no manual for it in the binder of info in the kitchen. While we got great communication and service around check-in, the need to meet someone at a specific time was a hassle (never had to do that before and when you’re traveling it’s hard to know how long thing...more
Outstanding, well equipped, clean and cozy apartment. Excellent access from the airport, 10 minutes to the railway station, around a myriad of restaurants and shops. A great base for exploring beautiful Edinburgh and wonderful Scotland. I recommend to everyone!
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.
Beautiful, modern, comfortable and handily located two bedroom one bath apartment. We had everything we needed. We did experience some noise from the street and the pubs on Thursday and Friday night. We loved that we could walk right down into the park with kids toys, and up to the castle easily!
We live this apartment, location facilities and comfort. This is our second visit and booking again fir next year. Fantastic views over Edinburgh right next to the castle too
It is a very confortable apartment , un Great condition, I do recomend it, it was clean and it was like beem home Also , we had a good welcome with cokies and fruts
Very comfortable, spacious and homely accommodation. Well equipped kitchen. It It was a short walk to local shops and easy walking distance to central Edinburgh. The letting company were very helpful too.
Firt of all, Great location Perfect amenities! You can imagine the dream house you ever dreamed.
Stayed at Nelson Street for 4 nights with my wife and two daughters over Hogmanay / New Years. Lovely, comfy and well kept apartment, as well as a great location to access everything in the city. Would happily stay again!
An excellent welcome and introduction to the apartment. All the facilities we needed but both the sofa and bed settee could have been more comfortable Albany Street is close to restaurants and shops on Broughton Street and the number 11 bus on York Street links Leith and Morningside via Princes Street A reasonable price for the location and facilities
Great location for this very warm and comfortable apartment . The apartment had exactly what we wanted , we highly recommend this as a place to stay.
First class service Easy and accommodating check in Immaculate apartment Completely satisfied couldn’t be any better
This is a wonderful flat in a spectacular location. It's just a short walk to Stockbridge, with its shops and restaurants, and it's only about a 30 minute walk to Old Town (or you can take a bus from Stockbridge). The flat has everything you need to feel at home: plenty of seating in the living and dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, and two comfortable bedrooms. It was easy to child-proof the apartment for our toddler son, and although I was worried about the exterior staircase, it is not as steep as it appears in the pictures. The flat was very clean and the flowers and treats were welcom...more
Carpets needed a clean and the storage spaces were very cluttered Also the shower could do with an overhaul A bread knife would have come in handy But it’s still a cozy little flat and the location is excellent and Katie the landlady is personable and helpful
We came to Scotland to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday in style and the Heriot Row apartment helped to continue the theme of comfort and luxury. The apartment had a good vibe and was well placed for all the important areas that we wanted to visit.
We are repeat renters of the Royal mile properties. This should say it all. We always feel like family staying at this centrally located flat. Everything worked properly and the beds were comfy. We cannot wait to stay again. Keep up the good work.
The flat was a lovely space to stay in on your little trip to Edinburgh. We was met by the lovely Calum who helped assist us with places to visit, and showed us the amenities in the flat. He also ran through any questions we had. Would definitely recommend this flat to people we know wanting to stay in Edinburgh for sometime.
The cottage is very nice and attractive. It had all of the amenities that were promised. There was even milk in the refrigerator and the necessities to make coffee and tea. It is in a quiet, safe feeling neighborhood. It was only a short walk to the bus stop to get to the center of town. The young lady who met us at check in was courteous and helpful. There is a grocery and a pharmacy at the corner within walking distance which was convenient. The only drawback was a lack of a place to put your luggage in the small twin bedroom.
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It worked very well for us, and was less expensive than renting two hotel rooms near the city center. It was very convenient to have a working kitchen, where we could have a quick breakfast before heading out to tour the city. One drawback: the pull out couch was not comfortable and I had to improvise to get a decent night's sleep (which I was able to do).
A perfect location for visiting Edinburgh. Very close to all the major parts of Old town and a great spot to venture from.
The apartment was very easy to find whilst set back from the Royal Mile just the right distance to be quiet but very convenient. What a little gem and only a five minute walk from Waverley Station. A very deceptively large apartment, good sized bedrooms and bathrooms, decent kitchen and a massive lounge set off by the double-aspect big windows. A true home from home whilst a very convenient base for shops, bars, restaurants and all the attractions of Edinburgh. A lovely apartment which we will most definitely use again.
Great place to stay. Great location very clean and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Would definitely stay again.
We enjoyed our stay at our Great Base Apartment. The location was excellent. Grocery store around the corner, two restaurants across the street, convenient bus stops and steps to Holyrood Palace! Perfect place for our family of four to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. The beds/mattresses were not the most comfortable but that is our only complaint. We would definitely recommend it and we would definitely stay there again!!!
We couldn’t be happier with this apartment! It was in beautiful condition. The beds were very comfortable. The rental agency went out of its way to answer all of our questions and accommodate us. I would define stay there again.
We were met within a couple of minutes of our arrival with keys and a quick a tour of the home. The apartment is as stated in the rental listing. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, cookies and fruit. Unfortunately, I have mobility issues and was not aware that the apartment was on the third floor with no elevator access. We rented the apartment for 3 nights but I had such difficulty getting down the steps in the morning we were only able to stay one night.
Needed to find accommodation close to where we where undertaking a refurbishment of a new shop for several tradesmen. I searched the internet and found greatbase apartments. I emailed Katie and her team and they where very helpful. They have helped me with various requirements over the last several months. Jamaica Lane property is one of many we have used from Greatbase and it has been excellent. Highly recommended
This was an amazing place to stay. The apartment is on the 6th floor (with a lift, old school style!) with views over Makars Court to the south and across Princes Street Gardens and the city across the firth to the north. It is larger than the photos give it credit, and the furniture is stunning. All facilities are there, but you are right in the heart of the city so restaurants all around within minutes. Central heating very effective. Lovely dedicated CD system but if you are not a fan of classical or opera, bring your own CD's! Has a DVD player and TV but we never had time to watch anything...more
We had a lovely staying! Katie is very helpful. Apartment is very central and everything was clean. Absolutely fantastic!!!
This stay was in very good conditions : comfortable, with nice decoration and with good support of the staff
Everything we needed for our short stay was there and we couldn't have found a better place for the price with cafe's and restaurants and within walking distance to pretty much everything. The apartment was nice and cosy.
More house keys would have been useful, otherwise all good. I guess the flat is student flat during the academic year.
The stay was very comfortable and the place is well maintained and all the equipment you need was available , nevertheless one issue that I faced was that apartment had a lot of art depicting nude women etc which we were told that we can’t move, which made the stay awkward, especially that such things are not acceptable for us as we have children that will be visiting. We would preferred art that is neutral. Hence it should be clear in the pictures or mentioned that some art with these features will be available and it can’t be moved, so it becomes the choice of the tenants.
This apartment is in a great location and very quiet! Walking distance to pretty much everything in!
