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 were very happy with the accommodation, which had a lot of extras but was missing some of the more basic items - oven gloves, bath plug, tea towels. A plug was dropped off in time for baths on the second night. The children enjoyed playing hide-and-seek in all the nooks and crannies.
Really enjoyed our stay all aspects first class. Be aware that the garage is on the short side. Thank you Kate for all your help including unplanned early entry when we bumped into you on the street.
A cute apartment in a quiet area but still close to the city centre. Has everything you need and the customer service is excellent.
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
My first time in booking through this company and fair to say I certainly wasn't disappointed. Met Katie before our 4pm arranged time and she took us to the apartment. Was impressed with the apartment liked the little gestures like the fruit and biscuits tea and coffee and other things. Would definitely stay there again, would also look up to see what else they have to offer.
We had a very good welcome at the Apartment, and found it to be a warm, welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We had never been to Stockbridge but will certainly go back, the Apartment was in a great location for all local amenities and places of interest.
A fantastic property for a large or two families or small group to enjoy socialising as well as the delights of Edinburgh, in an excellent location with exceptional views over Princess Street and New Town
This lovely apartment has the wow factor. Lovely spacious rooms and comfortable furniture. Heating was very efficient too as it was very cold outside. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would love to stay again. It is a 10 minute walk to Waverley Station and so central to all of Edinburghs attractions.
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
Beautiful, clean and comfortable apartement in a nice neighbourhood close to all sights and good restaurants within walking distance. Very friendly staff! We had a great stay!
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.
This was a nice, bright, clean and comfortable family apartment for our first two nights in Scotland! Our kids really enjoyed the layout, the comfy beds, and the living room furniture. We highly recommend both the building and the neighbourhood as a great way to experience Edinburgh. On a previous trip we stayed near the Royal Mile, but this was a refreshing change, away from the tourist crowds!
This a fantastic flat to start our holiday in Scotland. The flat was spacious enough for our family of four to comfortably live for 10 days. We enjoyed walking to Stockbridge, New Town, the botanic gardens and up to Princes St gardens for our children to play. It was spotlessly clean and fitted out with quality linens, comfy beds and all the necessary items for us to enjoy our stay. Great Base were great to deal with and always responded promptly to queries. We couldn’t recommend this experience highly enough!
This is a perfect Mews flat in a quiet location in the West End for one person or a couple to explore Edinburgh - walking distance of all the sights and plenty of coffee shops and restaurants nearby. Close to the tram and railway station too. Modern fit-out - habitat style - very clean with everything you need (apart from a washing machine!). We did have a wee problem with a door and the Management Company fixed it immediately - excellent service and support from Greatbase Apartments. Thank you and enjoy!
Cold cold cold Apartment was lovely just never warm. Watched tv under blankets Water was only ever luke warm so couldnt even warm up in tbe bath
You can't get closer to where you want to be in Edinburgh with the amount of space, level of comfort and price of this excellent apartment. I would highly recommend Heriot Row if you want a luxurious place to rest up from wandering around both new and old towns. We're sure to be back.
Great, homely spot. Very central. Lovely outlook into pretty courtyard. Had a lovely stay, would stay again.
This is our second stay in this property as it is super convenient being only a minute's walk away from family living in Edinburgh. The cottage is warm, clean, comfortable and quiet - lots of hot water, and logs for the log burner. Plus a decorated Christmas tree! The bedrooms are fairly small, but the living/dining space is huge! The owner has provided just about everything you could need. Overall a great place to stay.
This feels like a home from home (if only home was in such a wonderful location and so relaxing!) This has been our third stay in the Heart Apartment and our fifth time to book with Greatbase - we have stayed in two other locations in Edinburgh, and the apartments and service have been just superb. The Royal Mile Heart apartment is a little luxurious island of calm in the (very enticing) buzz of Edinburgh, and such an amazing home to retreat to at the end of the day.
Mold smell all through Appartments liked the location lots of lnformation and directions people were very friendly and helpful
Wonderful reception and clear access instructions. Marvellous apartment in a marvellous location....
Terrific little apartment in Grassmarket. It's quiet and compact and has most things you'd need for a short stay. It is a late check-in (3-4pm) so bear this in mind and they cannot store luggage. Nice views from the windows. Nice and warm, good shower, lovely comfy bed and nice linens. I would certainly go there again.
Jamaica Lane, which we booked through Greatbase Apartments Ltd, was the perfect spot for our singing weekend in Edinburgh. The staff at Greatbase were helpful and friendly and provided above and beyond the level of service they might be expected to. We were slightly late arriving, delayed train, but the lady who was waiting to show us round could not have been kinder and more patient. The property has the benefit of a garage which guests can use, a scarcity in central Edinburgh. It almost seemed a shame that we had travelled by train so couldn't take advantage of it. The lane is very quiet, in...more
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.
Thank you for helping organise a wonderfully relaxing few days. The apartment was very well appointed
Stayed with Greatbase a number of times and always received fantastic service. All properties are of an excellent standard.
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.
Lovely apartment in the heart of the city. The flat is within walking distance to all of the great local landmarks. Nice touches of fruit, flowers and shortbread cookies. Highly recommend! Would definitely stay again.
A fantastic property, very central and large enough for 6 friends. Great to have 2 bathrooms and lots of space to sit in the living room. The apartment has brilliant views over the city due to the fact it’s up about 4 flights of stairs, it kept us fit over the weekend! Only negative point was the lack of a freezer, the kitchen is well equipped apart from a freezer which would have handy after I’d bought a bag of ice!! Also it got rather cold in the bedrooms at night; all sorted after a trip to Primark for fleece PJs all round! Would definitely recommend the apartment! Thank you Greatbase, we’l...more
Four of us stayed here for the last weekend of the Festival in 2019. Met by Maeve who was very friendly and explained a few simple housekeeping items with the apartment. Great location - 2 minutes walk from the end of the tram line at York Place - slightly more getting back to the tram as it is uphill! Apartment block looks great from the street - proper New Town House with a functional common stair. Inside was light and airy, 2 doubles (1 can be split into 2 singles) and a cosy single. Spacious hall way, lovely reception room and a great kitchen with all you will need. It is up stairs o...more
We had a wonderful time here. Spacious enough for 6 of us and with everything we needed in a great neighbourhood.
The apartment was perfect for our needs. The only problem was the man who met us there to give us keys really wasn't very helpful. I was told on an email it would be one of two ladies meeting us and instead it was a man so that was a bit odd in this day and age not knowing who he was, but ok since there were three of us. Once in the apartment he said this unit had no instructions on using the washing machine which would have been a problem since we are not familiar with this type, but in searching the cupboards we did find the manual. Then he said the heater (furnace) was the water heater and ...more
This New Town Georgian flat was just perfect for our needs. Nicely decorated and with mostly good facilities. We had some small issues - little storage space, no waste bins in the bedrooms - and a slightly bigger one concerning the novel shower in the second bedroom. Full points for the imaginative solution but without a curtain it was impossible not to flood the room after a shower. Getting in and (especially) out was a challenge. We may not be that young and flexible but for anyone, particularly children, it could be dangerous. But........we enjoyed every minute there and would stay again...more
We had some heating problems with one room too bad First class and residential district Rest perfect
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.
Castle Terrace offered a wonderful 'home base' for sightseeing in Edinburgh and for the Fringe festival. It was walking distance to everything we wanted to see, so very conveniently located close to groceries and restaurants. The flat was clean and bright with lots of windows and a sparkling kitchen. It had a comfortable living area, though a bit small. There was plenty of room in the bedrooms and the temperature was comfortable. Our host met us on time, we were late due to train and rain. There were some fruits and cookies as well as tea and milk. We were very grateful for the snacks. ...more
This is a very roomy flat and very well out fitted for cooking - everything you need to prepare a proper dinner! It was very clean and presented to us with fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, oranges and shortbread. Such a lovely welcome. It is quiet for sleeping as the bedroom is off the street. We really enjoyed the location, walked everywhere, and were able to enjoy the farmers market in Grassmarket on Saturday morning. This will be our flat of choice on our next, and longer, visit to Edinburgh. Thank you Katie!
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.
