-Booking Requirements-
We require names and ages of all guests, as well as addresses and ID. We will require the lead guest to sign copy of our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to vet any booking.

A damage deposit of £250 is required one week before arrival and will be fully refunded pending no damages one week after your departure.

The best of the city being available is not all that Marchmont has to offer, as the area itself boasts loads of wonderful little gems. The amiable Looking Glass Books, which is just a walking distance away, on Simpson Loan by Quartermile. This ‘booktique’ café boasts its own lively literary scene with regular events and author talks, together with enabling caffeine addiction. Perfect for bookworms and coffee enthusiasts. Another wonderful place to have your afternoon pick-me-up or your day-after remedy is the Pastures, on Marchmont Crescent. Considered the focal point for the local community definitely encouraged are the Friday nights, where the owners Jane and Stan stage a range of fun events such as ‘come-dine-with-us’ and ‘grub ‘n’ games’, featuring a continental-style dinner and plenty of laughs (BYOB is encouraged, which is another rare perk).

For a good lunch, with proper unpretentious Italian food with no fuss and the best pizza in Scotland, give café Artista, on Marchmont Crescent, a try - it really feels more like being in Continental Europe than Edinburgh, and is a hidden treat in Marchmont! For special afternoon delight, do drop by The Chocolate Tree on Bruntsfield Place – who proudly, and without unnecessary boast, house a world of organic chocolate delight in their café and shop both, a place where people can meet, take time out and indulge the individuality of chocolate delights in a welcoming surrounding.

My first impressions were really good. As a family of five, I want furniture which is practical and not easily marked so I am not worrying all holiday. Practical leather sofas, solid kitchen furniture and wooden floors all made this easier. It was spacious, high ceilings and surprisingly well sound proof (we were staying over Easter when the students were away but I imagine at other times there would be more noise late at night at the weekends). Everything was very clean and the tempur mattresses were amazingly comfortable. We loved the accommodation - it was spacious, clean, practical and comfortable.

It is the little touches that made the difference. We loved having complimentary luxury Scottish smellies to use on holiday - and the children bathed in bubbles whilst I had the time to moisturise long neglected skin. We also appreciated fresh filter coffee and Scottish biscuits on arrival - very welcome after a four hour journey in the heat. I think it is very important to have washing up liquid, toilet rolls and even a little washing powder in the accommodation and this was all provided - as were ample supply of fresh towels, clean linen and tea towels.

Good communication by your staff who answered all queries promptly. All in all, an excellent service. I would also like to say I love the fact you collect and respond to feedback.

The atmosphere was fantastic. The location regarding the center was convenient. The big park was close as well as local food stores. The shops are open between 7AM to 11PM what was very convenient.

Everything went very smoothly.

The apartment was beautifully furnished, clean and very spacious. We really appreciated the many towels and the tea & coffee basket, as well as the cosy fireplace. Nice neighbourhood within walking distance of the Old Town.

We were really happy about the service provided. From the time we made the booking to the day of arrival, we got rapid response to our e-mails. Upon arrival, Anne Marie arrived just as we did, and we got a tour of the flat. It was nice that she took time to tell us about both the apartment and the neighbourhood.

The apartment was very spacious for our family and everything was in good working order. The kitchen was very nice. We made supper there several nights. the living room was comfortable for family and we enjoyed it's character. It was great to have internet access and lovely extra's such as games, books,shampoo and bath gel. I am sure we will try and rent this apartment again when we come to Scotland.

Contacts by phone and e-mail were responded to very quickly and Anne Marie was very nice and explained everything thoroughly when we checked in. No surprises and expectations were surpassed. Sue Muenchow September 2010
