Key features

Sitting pretty in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, The Bellevue Residence is truly a sight for sore eyes. Stylishly decorated throughout, this apartment is the epitome of cool, calm and collected, and effortlessly combines traditional architecture with modern interiors. The well-appointed property sleeps up to four guests, and enjoys a private lower-ground level entrance.

The light and airy living room provides the perfect space to sit back and relax after a long day exploring Edinburgh. French doors lead out to a leafy sanctuary with private patio and outdoor furniture, perfect for indulging in a G&T on a balmy evening. Back inside, and the contemporary decor includes sumptuous sofas, hand-picked artwork and large flat-screen smart TV with Netflix and Sky.

Feeling peckish? Move through to the ultra-sleek kitchen and everything is on hand for your very own culinary adventure. The integrated Siemens appliances include an induction hob with telescopic hood, dishwasher, and double combination microwave ovens. A separate dining room is dressed with mid-century modern kitsch, and a great space for an intimate dinner.

Two double bedrooms ensure a peaceful night’s rest and both benefit from plentiful guest storage. Luxury continues in the chic bathroom with shower over bath and underfloor heating, completing this simply wonderful home from home.

The Bellevue Residence benefits from a fabulously central location in a residential Georgian street that perfectly demonstrates the New Town grand design. The location enjoys all the perks of city centre living, just a few minutes’ stroll from Boughton Street and Canonmills, both with great selections of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as familiar brands. A large Tesco is just around the corner.

The Dean Village and Stockbridge, two of Edinburgh's best loved areas, are less than a mile away and perfect for a lazy Sunday brunch or spot of people watching. Shopaholics are in luck as upmarket shopping street Multrees Walk – think Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols – is just a hop, skip and a jump away, as well as retail havens John Lewis, George Street and Princes Street.

When it's time for something a little more touristic, all of Edinburgh's main attractions are in easy reach. Edinburgh Castle, The Palace of Holyroodhouse and The Old Town are walkable in 30 minutes, and frequent bus services depart from just the local area with destinations such as Royal Yacht Britannia and Rosslyn Chapel. 

A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

    We've stayed in this apartment before, just under 2 years ago at New Year, and it was truly excellent, very highly presented and maintained. However, it seems that management may have changed in the meantime.

    This time we felt things had slipped in terms of quality: there were quite a few dead light bulbs especially in the main bedroom, the battery in the bathroom scales was dead, an access hatch in bathroom ceiling had been left open, a drawer handle was falling off, a "towel" left on the bed turned out to be a bath mat and so on. Minor things, each of them individually, but they build up to a pattern suggestive of a lack of care and attention to detail.

    We also noticed things missing, like the big glass table in living room, a missing picture, the lack of any liquid hand soap in the bathroom (previously provided) - and where has the kitchen bin gone? It was really annoying having nowhere to put rubbish.

    At check-in we were provided with toilet rolls and dishwasher tablets, which gave us the impression that these things were now being rationed a bit. Also, when we last stayed, there was a fresh pint of milk in the fridge ready for us to use. Not this time.

    The biggest concern was that the gas fire in the living room was not working properly (previously a little tricksy to operate, now it just didn't work). It was kind of glossed over quickly at check-in, but it's not simply an issue of heating (the place is plenty warm enough) - there is a far more serious question about safety if a gas fire is not functioning properly. Annual servicing of gas appliances in rented property is mandatory, yet there's no certificate available in the apartment to check this.

    For sure, the apartment still looks the part on the surface. It's when you look closely that you can see a distinct difference in how it's being maintained now compared to when we first stayed there. All in all, we had the feeling that things are being skimped on, corners are being cut and the apartment's no longer quite as luxurious a stay as it had been previously - which is what you're paying for, after all. We'll look for somewhere else next time.


    A lovely apartment in a great location BUT it looks as though maintenance and quality standards are slipping. See my comments on customer experience for details. They are mostly minor things but they add up to an overall impression of lack of care - except about the £££.

    Our response

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues you found during your stay. We have passed all of your comments onto the Property Manager who, where necessary, will take the steps to make the improvements at the property. We can assure you that the gas fire has been serviced in accordance with regulations. However it is not compulsory to display the certificate in the property, as stated on the Gas Safe Register website: If the rental period is less than 28 days at a time you may display a copy of the record in a prominent position within the dwelling. Despite these issues we do hope you enjoyed your visit to Edinburgh.

    Die Vermietung mit Reserve Apartments hat super funktioniert. Es wurde sich sofort gemeldet und die Organisation vor Ort war auch super. Die Hausverwalterin hatte uns auch eine Tip gegeben, wie man besser zur Wohnung kommt. das war wirklich hilfreich.Die Wohnung war sehr schön und der Aufenthalt einfach so, wie man sich das vorstellt.
