After a very long week we are delighted to say that we took our very first booking in this large apartment. The Grand traditional old house sits on prime location opposite the Queen Street Gardens and above is the antique shop which has so many gorgeous pieces . The apartment itself shares many fine unique features with the benefit of some really modern touches. According to our market we know that large groups come to Edinburgh and wish to stay in these fine period houses but want to share the costs. We therefore provide many beds to accomodate up to 14 guests in one go.
We have kept the style pretty much the same as our other large apartments but with some new fine touches. The 50 shades room was replicated for the fun and excitiement it creates. We love the New York room too and this time it is even more spacious sleeping 5 in one room. 50 Shades sleeps 6 or 7 in one go but we have also taken into considration that as much as our market will be mainly large groups we do not want to rule out families or couples hence our family room and a double bed incorported withnin the 50 room.
The dining room offers 2 tables which can comfortably sit 14 guests at one setting. The little bar is a fine piece and a little fun. The modern and old features work very well in that they show a good combination of sophistication and fun. I use the word 'FUN' often as this is what we want our guests' to do when they stay with us.
We consider ourselvelves to be open and friendly and although we offer these large apartments the messege has always been clear.
"The apartments are not Party Flats but they provide affordable acomdation for you to have the party outside. And of course when the party is over you are only a stones throw away to fall back into bed."
Ah !!! I forgot to mention the jacuzzi. This is worth a visit. Trust me it is nice but do not fill it up too much with bubbles or like me you will be lathered up from head to toe.
We are just so excited to welcome you hear where you can also experience the choice of some fantastic bars next door. My very own favourite is Fingers Piano bar which in itself is an instutuion and very much worth a visit not just during the Festival time when it is open until 5.am but every Saturday night. You can skip the queue too if you ask for Evelyn. OMG surely I am not that much of a regular. !!
See for yourself.
