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 .....
Had a great stay at Jamaica Street - easy walking distance to the city centre and a fab cafe nearby for breakfast (Leo's beanery) and a sainsburys express round the corner - would definitely use again - perhaps a bit cold in the apartment as it was wet and windy while we there but that's our fault as we prob should have just put the heating on! An excellent bolt hole to stay in while visiting the fringe!
We've stayed in various apartments in Edinburgh over the years. Drummond Place is by far the best. It ticked all the boxes for our family reunion. Comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms and the most amazing spacious kitchen. The lounge was comparatively small but to be honest we lived in the kitchen. It was so well equipped with high tech gadgets and having used the washing machine and tumble dryer I want to change my own brand to Siemens now! I think you can tell that I loved the apartment and would highly recommend it.
The third time we stayed in Edinburgh, the third time with Katie and Greatbase. The apartment is excellent located in Edinburgh, just a few minutes walk away from all public attractions. We stayed there with two couple, the apartment itself is nicely equipped and the neighborhood is very quiet, no sound from the streets around. Thumbs up, strongly recommended!!
This is a great 2br in a great location next to Usher Hall. Clean, nice layout, all amenities needed. Great place to stay.
The house was everything we hoped for. It had all of the home comforts a family needs for a week away. The washing machine and tumble dryer were really handy, as we had travelled with hand luggage only. The location of the house was so picturesque, with the high street at Stockbridge having all of the essential shops plus lots of interesting boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
This property has everything needed for the comfortable stay in Edinburgh and much more. The pictures do not do it a justice. The apartment is newly renovated with a great taste, but has all all charm and character of "old world." Located within an arm reach from all major attraction, yet facing a rather quiet street, so no problem with a traffic noise. Kitchen is well-equipped and beds are very comfortable.
Perfect location for walking to major sights. Plenty of light in attractive flat. Katie was a very helpful host.
The Cambridge Street apartment was awesome. It was exactly as described and was perfect for a family of four. It was spacious, clean and was an awesome location. The two bathrooms and washer/drier were a bonus. The location was great, it was quiet yet it was an easy walk to most locations. We definitely recommend this location.
Our family of four had a wonderful stay. The apartment is clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with a great location. We were able to tour sites on The Royal Mile, stop in to give the kids a break, and then easily head back out again. It was wonderful to be able to save money as well by cooking some of our meals at the apartment. Would definitely recommend!
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.
We very much enjoyed our two week stay in this comfortable well equipped flat. We are grateful to our host who met us punctually and was on hand to answer questions and sort out a few minor problems. The flat is perfectly suited for visiting the city and particularly for the Edinburgh Festival, with more or less all events being within walking distance. A convenience store nearby was useful for food shopping, and the Castle Terrace restaurant (Michelin star) on the ground floor great for fine dining. We loved it so much that we very much hope we can return next year.
We had a fantastic stay. The apartment is beautiful, spotlessly clean and a great location. We were in Edinburgh to visit the book festival which was just a short walk away. We found plenty of brilliant places to eat nearby.
The apartment was perfect, it had everything we needed and more (board games...nailed it) Excellent location, tourist points at walking distance. Couldn't be better !!!
The whole process of booking, getting answers to our questions, submitting payment, and gaining access to the apartment was very well done and efficient. Katie was extremely helpful and certainly went well beyond expectations in facilitating our stay. The location was outstanding. Well done Greatbase! I would highly recommend this property. Thank you, Ian
This is a beautiful place to stay, with good furnishings( although the artwork is a bit idiosyncratic). Location is outstanding, the linens lovely and the kitchen well designed, although needing some utensils. the only downsides are the lack of a separate loo- both are in bathrooms which can make mornings a bit tense when both are occupied by bathers/showerers- and the lack of any central storage area for luggage, before and after moving in. Best when occupied by a smaller number and then a real haven of tranquillity..
Really nice accommodations! Modern and clean apartment. Spacious with everything that you may need for a comfortable stay. Nice touch to have books, DVDs and plenty of radios around. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Thanks Katie!
This apartment was very nice and in a great location. Small, would not recommend more than two people to stay here, but completely adequate for 3 people. We had a wonderful time staying here.
Lovely cottage with open plan. Every thing we needed was there.Its close to the local shops.Great friendly service when we booked. We will definitely be back and recommending it to our friends and family.
Very nice flat . Clean and cozy. Perfect location. Helpsom and pleasent host. some noice cars driving on the street. Especially in the bedrooms.
The flat was in excellent condition and comfortable, really close to all tourists spots in Edinburgh and bars. Definitely would recommend!
Collin, who is the owner of the property, is very responsive. Colin hired an external agency for managing the flat and welcoming guests. Katie was assigned to assist us during our stay. Both were very helpful and kind. The property was very well-maintained - very clean and tidy. The area where the property is was very peaceful still, despite that it is of walking distance to tourist spots and to the town as well. For the location, cleanliness, and service that you get - it is reasonably priced. I definitely recommend staying over at Colin's!
We were only in Edinburgh for a few days, but found this flat comfortable and easy walking to main events in the city. St Andrews square close for opening ceremony of the festival. Delightful coffee shop downstairs with helpful staff and homemade scones and tasty hand formed burgers , loved our well equipped space and location
Fantastic apartment in the perfect location for the city, everything is within walking distance. The apartment itself is beautiful,the beds incredibly comfortable, it's a stylish oasis in the beautiful madness that is Edinburgh at festival time. There are good neighbourhood shops a few minutes away and parking is plentiful. Katie as usual was very welcoming,knowledgeable and efficient.We tried to eat at Purslane following Katie's recommendation but it was fully booked so went to The Dogs again which she had previously also recommended and had another great meal.
A Lovely basement apartment in a large house close to the city centre. We were met and given the key a quick tour of the property and advice on facilities and restaurants nearby. There was fresh milk in the fridge a bowl of fruit and flowers in the window. Tea coffee and sugar were also provided. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed Edinburgh.
Our apartment in Stockbridge was charming and very comfortable and in a great location near to a number of good facilities, restaurants , gastro pubs and good coffee spots. Our host Katie was friendly ,helpful and very accommodating with our late arrival and late departure due to circumstances outside our control. We would recommend Great Bases Accommodation to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
High Riggs is a nice and quiet Place to stay, it's near the old and new Town of Edinburgh. On foot it takes 15-20 Min. to Princess Street and the Royal Mile. Near by are a few good Restaurants and Pubs.
A bit more expensive than some of the other properties that we looked at but well worth the extra money for the few days that we spent in Edinburgh as part of a longer break. The owner, Katie, was waiting for us when we arrived and told us about the property, local restaurants and good shows that she knew about. Nicely situated in the old town, near to the "Georgian House" museum if you are interested in that sort of thing. Luxuriously spacious living area for the four of us. Stairhall gives sense of faded grandeur of Georgian era - good exercise for us getting to top floor but maybe not r...more
Large rooms. Easy walking to town centre and buses. The use of Queens gardens. Just down road from the house that Robert Louis Stevenson lived in
Home was so beautiful and comfortable. Our family of 5 felt right at home. We really were sad to check out of home. Home had everything we needed. But location was great. Apartment sits right off Royal Mile and you could walk to anything in the city center. Great customer service too. Quick to respond when we needed them. Gave us a very thorough check in as well. Highly recommend this apartment.
This location was very well situated, very close to the castle, the Holyrood Park, and all kind of shops. We were well received by Greatbase Apartments Ltd, and the advice were very wise. Moreover there was a lot of documentation in the appartement regarding all the touristic attractions. We have a great stay at Royal Mile 1 and Edinburgh is really a great city to discover.
We had a great time and the location of the apartment was perfect! we could reach all the places very easily! Besides the apartment was great. It had everything we could need. We highly recomend it!
Fantastic venue right in middle of area around Dynamic earth, Hollyrood palace and Houses of Parliament, the panoramic views of the Crags, Arthur's seat and are was lovely . Nice little coffee and cake shops and only 1 minute through the cut to the Royal Mile, An Excellent choice of accommodation
Great location for the New Town , Stockbridge and just a short walk up the hill to The Royal Mile !!
This is a real designer gem, from the details of construction to the furniture. The views from any part of the flat are breathtaking. The location is perfect for visiting all of the Old Town attractions with 7 minutes walk from Edinburgh Waverley train station and within 8 minutes walk to the Castle and the National Museum. All street artists are on your door step. Jack met us at the house at our arrival and gave us all possible information on the house and the city. Thank you Jack! A perfect stay!
La atención recibida es magnífica. El piso esta bien para dos personas. Esta a 10 minutos de los lugares interesantes a visitar,
Excellent location, great bed linen and good welcome with many information about the city. However the shower hot water turns cold then hot again all the time and needs to be fixed, the fridge was not clean, the cutlery was insufficient and we could not open the windows for fresh air in any room except the kitchen. The flat will need renovation so the price quality ratio is less good than what I experienced in other large cities (San Francisco, Paris etc)
At first, one may has the impression to enter a very old and abandoned building with dirty stairs and pigeons' feathers and seems to wonder where these stairs could actually lead. In fact, when reaching the flat at the 2nd floor (stairs are narrow and quite numerous, especially for old people or heavy luggages to carry), I realised the flat contains everything you need: a comfy bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom as well as a big sofa bed; it is easy to stay here at 3 people if you take 2 minutes to turn back the bed into a sofa. There is also a tv with local channels as well as a p...more
