Only 1 issue
Lovely place to stay only issue we had was we booked for 4 people. 1xdouble bed and 1x sofa bed but the sofa bed wasn’t made up so had to make own bed which should have been made up for us arriving.

Lovely apartment but limited parking
Lovely, clean, family apartment booked for our first family holiday. Staff we encountered were very friendly. One issue would be parking and with 1-2 parking spaces between 8 apartments there is a strong possibility you will end up paying for parking - £2 an hour which adds up. The maximum you can pay at once is 4 hours. For us a second issue was the heating going off on the second night. We couldn’t get it back on and with a baby this was a bit of a pain and she ended up sleeping in her pushchair where it was more cosy than the travel cot as the apartment did get quite cold. Overall the apartments were lovely and if we didn’t have to travel by car I would stay again.

DVD player wasn’t working at all & was one of the reasons I selected Merchiston, apart from that it was glorious 😊

Great stay at the Merchiston.
My wife and I stayed for two nights and loved the Merchiston. It's a 30 minute walk out from the city centre but that suited us and we took a taxi when we wanted a night out. The location is pretty quiet and the residence was also peaceful. The only thing that didn't suit us were the large plump pillows but we'd take our own next time. We'd definitely stay there again.
