  • "Fantastic location close to all amenities."

    I felt like the whole place needed the décor freshening up. New tiles to the bathroom or at least the replacement of discoloured grout. Paintwork is starting to look old. This place could be outstanding if it was shown some love and attention. I would stay again but 3 nights was long enough.

  • "Very enjoyable stay."

    Flat warm, comfortable and well-appointed and a great location to explore Edinburgh on foot. Close to Princes Street for Old and New Towns and walkable to Stockbridge and Dean Village, both worth a visit. Minor niggles were radiator in kitchen not working (may need bleeding), only one small chopping board and bent pan support on the gas hob. But would certainly recommend.

  • "The apartment was ideal."

    It was very clean and well equipped. The bed and pillows were comfortable and appeared to be quite new so may have been replaced since the previous negative comments. It is easy to walk to many places of interest in the city from the apartment, We particularly enjoyed Stockbridge with its independent shops, cafes and Sunday market. There is a bus stop nearby, the buses are easy to use as you can pay contactless and the Lothian Buses app gives lots of useful information.

  • "The property still wasn't ready even though we had arrived after tea."

    The sofa covers were stained and shabby looking. They were the same stains that were present when I stayed over two years ago. The tele kept losing signal and to be returned every 30 minutes or so. Under the coffee table dog chews but the visitor book said no one had stayed there for 6 months prior to our visit. The cooker has melted cheese in the bottom, so I decided against using it in that condition. The location is superb but the flat was not as clean and fresh as you would like, I feel this was especially important during the covid epidemic! So overall I'm disappointed especially as the covid delayed the holiday and it was looked forward to for so long. I won't rebook this place a 3rd time as I feel the owners have no interest in its condition and just want to rent it regardless.

    Apartment had some minor maintenance issues which are being addressed,but apart from that was perfect.

  • "This is a lovely spacious period property in a great location just 5 minutes walk from Princes Street and Dean Village."

    Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. It would be easy to be picky as there are a few DIY jobs that need doing and some things that need replacing but none of it impacted on our stay. There is private secure car parking at the back. This is a little tight but we have a BMW X3 which went in ok. The apartment was spotlessly clean thanks to the Edinburgh Cleaning & Concierge Company who look after the apartment. A few tips - take a bottle opener, can opener, salt and pepper grinders/shakers, and pillows as theirs are a bit thin. There is good internet (password on the hub) and you are provided with 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel each for the week which may not be enough. Spare keys are in the kitchen. Key collection details are sent to you by EC&C which was a problem as Sykes forgot to supply them with our email address. This resulted in a delay in getting into the property. But we had a fantastic stay and would definitely come here again. It represented great value for money when compared to other Edinburgh properties.

  • "The bed was reasonably comfortable but the pillows were very thin and floppy, and there were no spares provided."

    Sofas were in need of new seat cushions and were stained in parts. Kitchen equipment was poor, badly worn frying pans with surfaces peeling off, inadequate knives, no bottle opener, no can opener, no tea strainer. And the "welcome" pack, advertised as containing special all butter shortbread........some very musty and stale smelling shortbread fingers, some of them broken, in a glass jar; equally musty smelling teabags and stale smelling clumped powdered coffee. Even in normal times this would have been insulting, but in a pandemic, altogether inappropriate to offer potentially contaminated goods. No credit to the owners I'm afraid, but thanks to the concierge for the cleanliness of the property.

    The flat is looking a little tired. Front garden path a bit weedy and general organic debris building up. Back garden could do with a spruce up too.

  • "You request that we leave the property as we find it!"

    !!! Lynedoch Place, in parts, needed attention. The bath was so dusty we thought it was scum. The cutlery and crockery had to be washed as they had food and stains on them and in the cutlery draw there were crumbs of food!!!! Also the properties back door Yale lock was broken!!! If we exited the house via the back way and inadvertently shut the door you had walk around via the street to enter via the front!!!! Also if you shut this door without any keys whatsoever Edinburgh Cleaning Concierge charge f£30 for the privilege of letting you back into a property you have paid for and they only provide one set of keys!!!! UNACCEPTABLE. Under your terms and conditions even though I will say publish this review I anticipate you will not!!!! Shame on You Sykes.

  • "The accommodation was just off Pirincess Street, and came with off street parking."

    This was a major selling point on this property. We were able to leave the car, and walk everywhere whilst in Edinburgh. The fridge needed cleaning on our arrival, but apart from that everything else was great. It was a little bit like the Tardis. It looks small from outside, but is extremely spacious inside. It had all the amenities we required, and we were very comfortable there. We found the front door lock extremely stiff, however a quick squirt of WD40 on the lock released the dirt and grime, and worked much better afterwards.

    The one thing which I would suggest is that there should be a second set of keys for the property which would allow a bit more freedom for going out, not necessarily both people together and at the same time. Otherwise we’ll look forward to visiting again.

  • "The apartment being a Georgian conversion was well proportioned and very quirky."

    Extremely central for everything , and the buses were excellent for sights out of walking range. Don't miss the Royal Yacht in Leith and have lunch or afternoon tea onboard - a perfect relaxing day out. The only problem was that the previous occupant had taken the keys to the back door and the parking space , so we could not park initially. But the letting agent was excellent and came round and had keys cut for us. Overall a very enjoyable holiday
