Response from Derek:
Thank you for your kind and full feedback Bevan - I'm really pleased you had a wonderful time in Edinburgh. Ref your comments on the stairs, yes the flat is on the 3rd floor, (as stated in the property description) - currently I always restate this in correspondance with guests with children, in the future I will make a point of mentioning this to all potential guests. (Thanks for the observation, I am always looking for ways to help improve the experience of guests). Cheers.
