Directions

There are three options to get from Edinburgh airport to the city centre, all take approx 30-35 minutes. The main rail station Waverley is approx 250 metres from the apt.

2. Airport express bus, every 15 minutes right outside terminal building, drop off point on Waverley Bridge approx 250 metres from the apt. Costs 7.50 pounds per person for a RETURN journey.

Parking

Street parking is enforced Mon Sat 08:00 - 18:30, it is expensive and inflexible as you can only stay in one spot for a few hours.

There are many city centre car parks to choose from, you can use these for a short time or full days which cost approx 16 pounds or more or enter the postcode of the property you have booked into this website http://www.parkopedia.co.uk/

Alternatively if you do not plan your use your car much, (Edinburgh is a relatively small city centre and is much better explored on foot), leave your car in a well lit residential street outside the restricted city centre, the whole operation should take approx 30 minutes. Alternatively, the return journey in a taxi from an unrestricted area (approx 2.5 km) would be less than one days parking charges. Information on the best areas for this can be provided.

We have stayed in the flat three times over the last four years. We like the location and the size. However this year it was not as good a previous years. The flat is starting to look tired and in need of a bit of TLC. Bulbs not working , kitchen furniture needs a bit of attention etc. Might not have noticed as much if we hadn't stayed here several times before and its always been 5 stars. Also there is now three beds in the second bedroom , which cut down on the space and the chest of draws was removed to make room. There is a lot of space on the landing , so could the draws have been put there? We stayed for 10 days, previously the flat has been clean after a week. Not a big issue, but would have been nice to know what was happening

On the expensive side …..

Our response

Service rating : Thank you for your review and there were still many aspects you enjoyed. We are very sorry at ESC that there were some elements of your stay at the property which were disappointing this year. We will certainly be considering this valuable feedback and making improvements. The situation with the missed mid stay clean and additional bed being made up must have been been a communication error with the preparation team for both of these situations as we would only go to the expense and time of arranging the third bed if requested. The default arrangement is a twin a room. If this inconvenience had been brought to our attention at the commencement of the stay or during we would have removed it immediately.
Product : This stay was during the during the prime dates of the Edinburgh Festival for a large full property right on the Royal Mile, the price paid for this property was very economical in comparison to hotels and other self catering properties in the area.
