Fabulous 8.6 From 103 reviews

Good 6.0
Flat great but service very poor & disturbing
Apartment was excellent, however, the service was very poor.
John, gb1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Wow! Usually I stay at chain hotels, but this time I had extended family with me so needed something large and practical for the grandparents and kids to spend time together. Went for the luxury apartment with 3 double bedrooms + 3 bathrooms (no fighting in the mornings!) and was totally blown away. The penthouse was spacious and the bedrooms/lounge had great views; even saw fireworks every night we stayed. There's a Starbucks, supermarket (we had a fully fitted kitchen that came in handy) and restaurants immediately downstairs. The parking lot (at -2) is directly under the apartment so the lift took us directly up to the apartment (parking was £10 per day including multiple entries, much better than many hotels in the city). Great location for the university and city with everything within walking distance. Felt safe and secure at all times as there is only fob access to the building/car park. Had a great relaxing time with the family entertained with superfast WiFi for kids and big telly for the grandparents when not doing the tourist thing. Definitely recommend - if not staying, to buy one of these apartments :)
Kenneth, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good location for the fringe and the University.
I choose this apartment based on its central location for the fringe festival and the location did not disappoint. I was expecting a king bed but ended up with a double which may have been due to the manager moving us to a new duplex which he said was an upgrade at the last minute. The apartment size was probably bigger in the living area but the bedroom above was small with a double bed. The mattress could have been a little softer for my preference but in the end we were so tired it didn’t keep me from sleeping. The area is quiet and right on the edge of the University’s campus. There are a couple of cafes and a small supermarket right across the road.

Spacious apartment near Uni
Large, airy and comfortable apartment off the Meadows. Well equipped for longer stay. Bit tired - light bulbs not replaced; bedroom blinds not working properly.
