    It was an excellent experience, excellent value for money. Unbeatable location, pretty views, helpful staff. Private bathroom with all essentials. We stayed for 3 nights here, loved New Town district.

    It was a 4-star hotel in every way. Property had excellent location and staff. We appreciated to chill in the nearby The Magnum Restaurant & Bar.

    Good reception and check-in.Just a few extras would have made this good apart-hotel an excellent one- namely; a bar of soap in the bathroom as the dispensers were out of reach of anyone actually IN the bath; a shelf in the shower room to enable guests to put a toilet bag down-- there was nowhere except the toilet seat on which to put anything; and clearer instructions about appliances in the kitchen, e.g., dishwasher controls.Overall, we were very satisfied, and these comments are meant to help, not to criticise too severely.

    No, it was adequate for our needs, and we were comfortable during our stay--excellent beds.

    The hotel location was excellent I couldn’t fault it, ideal for shopping and nightlife. The apartment its self was very well equipped and had everything you would want. Only one thing there was no dishwasher detergent but thats a really minor thing.

    The only down side to this hotel are the very creaky floorboards and we were worried coming in late at night that we might disturb other guests.

    It gave us the freedom to do as we pleased, whilst having the comfort and the attention of a 4* hotel

    WE stayed for 2 nights however there was no cleaning service during our stay. I would expect a cleaning service and breakfast basket /toiletries renewal

    Rooms were really good value for money. Nice touches of flowers and chocolates and the breakfast pack was added bonus. The apartments were really central. I booked four apartments for 15 people and we had a great time...no complaints and many people will book again with families.

    Nice

    The location of the apartment was excellent. The apartment was very spacious. The views from our apartment were great.

    Please note that we actually stayed in a premium 2 br. The staff were not receptive to our requests. We reported problems with the apartment on two separate occasions which were noted by staff but nothing was done. Also, the apartment lacked attention to detail. There were no toilet brushes in either bathroom and the kitchen was not adequately equipped (no tongs and minimal utensils, no oven trays, no oven mits, no kitchen sponge). Although these are minor things if Blue Rainbow are marketing themselves as self-catering, they need to pay attention to these details. If Blue rainbow are currently refurbishing there rooms,it would be a good idea to invest in double glazed windows as the noise from Queen Street kept us awake on both night

    Perfect

    I particularly liked its location and the fact that we were allowed to check in an hour early.

    I thought the £30 charge for an extra bed was quite expensive for one night.

    The staff really tried to help out when the airports were closed due to the Volcano. The design of the room/suite was very good, comfortable bed and large bath were good features. The kitchen was very workable.

    The room could have been cleaner - carpets, and there were marks on the wall. One of the lights in the bath was not working.

    We thought it was the best value of all hotels we stayed at in UK. It was a studio, so had a stove and fridge, etc., yet cost less than smaller places we stayed. Because the price was so much less, and we had little experience, in the UK, we were afraid the room would not be nice. Then it turned out to be wonderful! It was nice and spacious, the bed was big and comfortable, and the bathroom was great because it had a full bathtub which we had missed elsewhere in UK. It had everything we could need.

    It was hard to find a light switch for the bathroom.

    .Nothing much. The bheating system was too hot and when turned down too noisy and the lack of bedding configuration ending in lack of sleep for a chirpy and well rested morning.

    Request at time of booking was for 1 King / dbl and 2 single beds (2 late teen children). The room configuration was of two double (4 x 6' beds) and neither was there a convertible sofa in the apartment nor was the spare bed, 2'x 5' suitable for sleeping. would have appreciated a response of this configuration to look / arrange suitable accomodation.

    Nice

    Our bed covering was unsuitable for warmer weather.A king size duvet on our bed was uncomfortable and the hotel had no lighter covering such as a blanket.There was also difficulty with the the hot water in the bathroom which was eventually solved.I do not think our executive apartment was good enough for what we paid.We stayed a total of 4 nights.
