"Beautifully designed, well equipped, clean, great location! What more could you need?"
Two mums from out of town, but familiar with the city. Booked to enjoy a spa day and visit our youngsters who live close by. Wanted freedom of access, to be able to do for ourselves when we wanted and a little luxury for a treat - got it all. Good value for money for our stay in March. Would have no hesitation in recommending or returning. Read less
Likes:
MR has a calm, relaxing, contemporary ambiance about it. Seems designed with care. Its location has great access to a wide choice of independent restaurants and shops in Bruntsfield and Morningside.
Dislikes:
Hard to find fault, being picky, found the heating awkward, didn't want to leave high all day when out but slow to heat place on return. Single glazing contributes and doesn't block traffic noise.
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you for your lovely review - am very pleased that you both enjoyed your stay and the tranquility here at the apartments together with the fantastic amenities of the nearby Morningside and Bruntsfield areas!

Unfortunately, due to the building being Listed we are unable to do anything about the single glazing, the same as many properties in the city, although very pleased that it did not affect your stay!

Apt 4 & Apt 6 have king size beds in them for future reference.

Likes:
Very comfortable apartment. Safe and interesting area. Staff friendly.
Dislikes:
On the second night of our stay the family in the flat immediately above our flat proved to be a bit anti social. They came home, very noisily, around midnight and the noise continued until 1.15a.m.
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you for your review. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and imagine that the show was superb. I am sorry that there were noisy guests above you on the second night which is not ideal at all. Should you wish to come back and stag again in the future please contact me directly and I will ensure a better located apartment for you.

One night with a 6 year old. Both very comfortable and a nice quiet area. Very easy to get into the centre of Edinburgh either bus or taxi, a Tesco at the end of the road to fill the fridge. Excellent restaurants nearby too.
A real home from home. I will be returning here for future visits without doubt. Highly recommended. Read less

We loved the room (Apartment 3) and use of space- shower was excellent! Everything was modern and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable (once I got into it as it is a bit high for short people.
Dislikes:
None
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Pleased that you enjoyed the apartment, albeit the elevated bed in Apt 3 can be a bit tricky if you are shorter, but fun all the same ! I am sorry that you did not see the milk which is supplied in sachets in the tea/coffee box in every apartment.

"Comfortable, quiet and stylish"
We were given a top floor apartment with views over local rooftops. The apartment had just been cleaned as we arrived and staff were pleasant and helpful. Lovely to have a separate double bedroom, lounge/kitchenette and shower/toilet room. Really comfy bed with spare bed settee and decor throughout was light and airy. A lovely stay, thank you. Read less
Likes:
Enough tea, coffee and cereals to provide our breakfast needs plus fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. Useful information pack; accurate timings for walking in the city centre - a brisk 25 min walk!
Dislikes:
We arrived by train then taxi, but suspect parking might be a problem for those with cars, most street spaces appeared for permit holders only.
Response from Merchiston Residence:
Thank you for your lovely review. I am very pleased that you had a lovely stay and certainly hope that you come back to stay again.

Re the parking - there are a couple of spaces behind the property on our driveway which are allocated on a first-come first served basis, however, outwith that it is parking in the metered bays on the street during the hours of 0830 and 1730 Monday - Friday (outwith those hours and at weekends street parking is free of charge).
