Facilities were top notch. Everything was fresh, modern and clean. I can't believe we also had a washing machine and dishwasher, should we need them.
Dislikes:
We found the stairs hard work especially with all our luggage.

"Absolute perfection"
Our apartment was everything we could have wanted, clean, comfortable, well equipped and modern. Every convenience was provided even ones you wouldn't necessarily expect like a dishwasher and washing machine. I could not fault this apartment in any way. We were even lucky enough to get one of the parking spaces belonging to the property, right outside our door, perfect. Do not hesitate to stay here, you will not be disappointed. Read less

Likes:
beautiful old building with high ceilings, loved the fact we had our own space unlike in a hotel, and we could cook.
Dislikes:
the only quibble we had was the housekeepers were very noisy in the morning from around 8am, not sure if they were doing extra cleaning, but doors kept banging loudly.
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Hello there, thanks for posting this review. I wanted to apologise about the noise. Our housekeepers don't start until 10am and so it sounds like we had a noisy guest and I am very sorry about that.

I hope we see you back soon.

"Truly outstanding"
I have stayed in 5 star resorts in various countries and the majority of these could not match the Merchiston in terms of cleanliness. The style is lovely, nice small touches like roses in the lobby and mini cereal and milk in kitchen. The owner/s obviously take great pride in their establishment and this is so obvious the minute you walk through the door. I will definately be back and also make sure that I write a review on tripadvisor. Cheers Read less

Absolutely faultless.
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you for your lovely review. Very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and delighted that you appreciated the small touches. We all do indeed take great care and pride in the apartments and look after them as we do our own homes. Hope you come back to stay with us again soon.

Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and certainly do hope you come back and stay again. Unfortunately, noisy guests happen from time to time and, although not ideal, difficult to monitor, however, this does not seem to be a regular problem which is positive!

"Faultless! 10 out of 10"
I loved my stay here. I loved it so much I returned the following week (wish I knew about it earlier). Accommodation is in a good location. The apartment was extremely clean and beautifully furnished. Absolutely faultless. Every little thing from washing liquid to a wide range of dvds were supplied. I cannot praise Merchiston Residence enough. The booking and check in process very easy and convenient. Friendly management- I emailed the manager and received a prompt and helpful reply. Read less

Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you so much for posting such a wonderful review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your initial stay and came back to stay once again and certainly hope you are able to return and stay with us again very soon.
