Loved Scotland - but not the manager at the QM
The Quartermile property was well suited for our recent trip to Scotland. However, the onsite property manager (Marc) was a rather arrogant man and he left us with a stranded vehicle in the parking garage (no supplied parking pass) that delayed our departure by more than an hour. We don't normally leave this kind of review but this guy was a real piece of work . Hopefully others have a better experience.

We had a great stay. The apartment is spacious and very well appointed, it has a beautiful view of the Meadows and is within walking distance to many of the tourist attractions. It is also perfectly situated if your visit has anything to do with the University of Edinburgh, which is right at their doorstep. There are a few very good places to eat nearby, as well as a couple of grocery stores that are open until late.

2/10 Poor

Overall, the property is ok. However, the service is appalling. On my first night, the apartment was very cold, even though I turned the thermostat to the max. When I called them and I was told to scan the QR code to fix the heating and TO CALL THEM ONLY IN CASE OF EMERGENCY. He sounded very annoyed. So I was wondering if heating is not an emergency. I have scanned the QR code, but there was no other instructions on how to fix the heating except the thermostat which I have already done. We have spent to worst night in our life because of the freezing cold with no heating and just a thin duvet. The following day, I left the apartment early in the morning, I was busy all day and did not go back till early evening to find the apartment cold. I call the management again to ask them either to fix the heating or to provide a thick worm duvet. I was surprised by the person I was talking to not willing/accepting to help and just talking not giving me the opportunity to talk nor to explain. When I tried to talk, he called me rude because I am talking over him. I was so shocked that I just said this is not acceptable and I hang up to avoid any confrontation. The next minute I received a text message from him to tell me that I am a bad customer and threatening to terminate the contract. In other words to kick me out because I want to spend a cosy night in the apartment. WHICH IS EVRY ONE'S RIGHT. This really shocked me. luckily I was there for only 2 nights.

We loved our stay at the quartermile, the location, cleanliness and overall feel was great. However, the shower was very poor, it had virtually no power and for the price of the room you would expect a higher quality. There was also the issue of a broken bed side lamp and the absence of any sort of lamp in the living room(we thought it would have made it a little more homely). The couch was also exceptionally small and more for aesthetic than a functional couch; it would have been nice to have had a “cosier” living room area. Overall though, it was a lovely experience and would come back just with potentially a different room.
