We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It's perfect for families too. The cottage was warm and welcoming, and stocked with essentials. A short walk to the centre, with loads of local shops and cafes close by. Would definitely recommend.
We had a lovely week in this most comfortable flat. Hoping to return next year. Very convenient for all local facilities, especially Stockbridge market.
Stayed at Castle views apartment for 2 nights. Absolutely fantastic. Beautifully decorated, furnishings top quality, comfortable beds and fantastic views. There are 60 steps up to it, so not suitable perhaps for some people.
Katie was a great host on our visit and we were able to have the most wonderful stay in her beautiful apartment. It was clean beautifully decorated spacious and it was right in the middle of the town. Katy very kindly had left us a lovely welcome pack fruit bowl and biscuits and milk which was so lovely to come into I highly recommend this place❤️
The flat is really beautiful, calm and comfortable. Located in the new town, it is very close to the city center, botanical garden, and Dean's gardens for a relaxing walk. Great place to stay!
Fantastic location for walking anywhere in the city. Apartment equipped with everything you need and to a very high standard - great base for a relaxing long weekend away with friends
Only 10 minutes walk from Waverly Station and nestled in a quiet spot close to all amenities. You couldn't ask for a better bolt hole in this beautiful city. We travelled as two couples making this apartment very good value.
Wonderful huge flat next to Usher Hall. Stuart was extremely responsive. The bathroom and sitting room were enormous and very relaxing.
We had a lovely 3-night stay. Brilliant location & a great apartment, had everything we needed. Very, very comfy beds & linen and lovely & quiet as the bedrooms were at the back. Short walk to the Stockbridge shops or a Sainsburys around the corner just up the hill. Apartment had 1 bedroom with ensuite, (great shower) leading to a cute garden downstairs and the other bedroom, bathroom (with bath) lounge & kitchen upstairs. If we visit Edinburgh again in the future we would have no hesitation in booking again
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
The accommodation and location was excellent. Right next to the castle within easy walking distance of fringe events. I would award this property 4 stars out of 5. The only reason for not awarding 5 stars was that there were a few minor issues ie the tap handle on the hand basin in the bathroom was broken, the mixer water tap in the kitchen was very loose on the work top, the temperature of the shower was difficult to regulate, the tablet lid of the dishwater was broken and finally a bedside light was broken. I contacted the agents re the faults and they attended the property promptly but rep...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
Lovely flat which was incredibly convenient to explore Edinburgh's new town and not far from the old town either. Great location, great facilities. We couldn't have asked for more.
Checked in with my friend for a four day break using key store with no problems. Apartment was just as we expected from the photographs. Loved the high ceilings and original features. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. The kitchen, if you were to cook, looked well equipped. We didn’t use anything but the kettle and toaster. The location was great and visited the restaurants on Broughton Street on an evening. The apartment is in a quiet area despite being only a short walk to town. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Perfect location for us as it balanced being close enough to the city without being in the thick of hustle and bustle. Well equipped kitchen with things like tea, coffee, fruit, oil which was appreciated. Needed some instructions leaving on how to use the TV and heating as nothing was supplied to us .
A beautiful apartment and perfect location. Stuart was very responsive and helpful to queries we had before staying. Lovely home touches & we will definitely be back.
We had a fantastic stay. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and very well equipped. We really appreciated the starter pack of food and fresh flowers! It is within an east walk of the centre of Edinburgh and ample on street parking and we got a space right opposite the apartment and left the car there for the duration of our stay. Parking was free from Friday evening until Monday morning. Host communication was excellent and checkin and checkout instructions easy to follow. Would thoroughly recommend!! We would have no hesitation staying here again!
My family and I had a fantastic stay at the cottage! We were welcomed by a lovely seasonal pumpkin display outside and home made cake inside! The cottage was clean with lovely touches through out. It has excellent bus links into the centre of Edinburgh, the area was quiet and it was nice and cosy having the log burner on at night. My children (4 and 2) didn’t want to leave. We would definitely stay again.
The apartment was very clean and located in the best place in town, closer to everything. It had everything that we needed and was very comfortable. We loved to stay here and we will definitely stay again.
We very much enjoyed being at the heart of the Old Town. The apartment has a fantastic location with amazing views. Everything you need is there. I highly recommend this flat for anyone who wants a historic Edinburgh experience.
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.
We had a fab time in Edinburgh. Apartment huge and very comfortable. Some essentials left for us which was great. Only 15 min walk to princes st. Would defo recommend and would go back .
I'm a repeat customer to Greatbase Apartments, this was a different location/apartment from where I previously stayed the communication and the level of detail prior to your stay is excellent. This apartment again was in a great location, everything you need for your stay.
Nice flat, in the heart of old town. Close proximity to everywhere and the station. Nice shops and restaurants around. I
Couldn’t really fault anything with the apartment was all clean and in good condition, the location it great short 10 minute walk from train station and 5 from the bus.
We booked the apartment specifically as a base for the Edinburgh Fringe 2020 and had to postpone the booking to 2021. We were lucky that the fringe took place and that the apartment was close to the venues. There was good WIFI in the flat. This was important as we were constantly booking shows as they were added to the fringe. (And some of our group wanted to play computer games) The property is the start of the Old Town with the Castle visible from the front door. It’s close to a Sainsbury's local and restaurants, cafes and bars. The trams are within walking distance, as are the buses....more
