Bathroom Has not been Redecorated along with the rest of the Flat, Very Dirty Grout in between tiles and sealant around bath near taps very black Mouldy! Taps very Grubby. Also Bath Had Not Been cleaned (scrubbed) Advise to give the Bathroom a makeover or at least a very good Clean on tiles and around Bath and taps. renew the Sealant. The Bedroom was hard to get around very little space to walk around and nowhere to put clothes. Bed is a Metal Frame and really squeaked every time you sit on it, got in or out of it or turned over. The Sitting Room and Kitchen were ok . We could not get in to Flat when we arrived as last person broke the Key in Lock! we did get Message when we got off the Plane to this effect and that Host would find us a Hotel. which He did but it was out of town, we then had to move hotels for 3 nights while the door lock was sorted! Host kept us informed but we booked flat so we did not have to Eat out all the time. so we were over budget on food .... it was also that we had to move Hotels 3 times.(this was because the same Hotel not available for all three Nights and Host did not know how long it would take to fix Door Lock). Host was to pay us back for Taxi trips to and from Hotel that was out of town but have not had this yet. we did only use taxi twice as had bus tickets for the day and got to the town Hotel by bus and walking. on reflection this was smaller than we thought. specially the bedroom. we chose this flat as it was close to where we wanted to visit and the town. so was a Great Location. close to shops, Bus and Tram and easy to get to attractions.

Excellent location on a quiet street close to main attractions. Some improvement in tidiness, presentation and clear instructions for all amenities would make this venue much better.

A good week, in a fine central place. Good location, good accommodations. Only defects: strong paint odor, not very clean. Apart from that, a fine place, Susan and Andrew are quite helpful and nice.

Hi Segolene Thank you for your lovely feedback. We're glad that you and your sister enjoyed your time in our flat and that you thought the location was perfect too. Unfortunately, you were the first guests since we redecorated and recarpeted the flat, so that's why you could smell the fresh paint! We'd be delighted to host you again, if you're ever back in Scotland. With best wishes Susan and Andrew

Hi! We're delighted that you're planning to visit Edinburgh. We've travelled a lot in our lives and in truth, Edinburgh is possibly the only place we've found where we feel we have been able to put down roots. Apart from the fact that it's just a beautiful city, with fascinating historical buildings, open green spaces and a vibrant culture of history, arts and music, it's also a city which never has a quiet season - there's always something going on! Andrew grew up between Crieff and Cairo, and is now happily settled in Edinburgh, keeping busy with his short term letting consultancy and finding investment properties for private clients. Susan comes from Inverness. In her previous life, Susan was a lawyer for y-e-a-r-s and now is a clinical hypnotherapist, broadcaster and author. Her first book was published last year and, if she ever gets 'round to meeting her deadlines, she'll publish another two in 2017. We have two beautiful grown up sons, both living in Edinburgh, who are also creative types - one a budding actor and playwright, the other just about to start his fifth novel. As a family, we love to go to the theatre, we love live music and we love to eat! Edinburgh is therefore just perfect for us all. Of course, we love it when August comes around as the festival and the fringe is, for us, our annual treat. Of course, for our guests, we'd say that the tattoo is unmissable as it's such a spectacle, but there are, for us, other shows which we make sure we never miss year after year. At other times of the year, there are hidden gems around Edinburgh. Just drop us a line. We love to chat before you arrive, should you wish to plan your trip in advance. If you need us, we're at the end of the 'phone, but we are careful not to be intrusive. So have fun, be happy, life's too short to be anything else!
