We arrived at St James Apartments at 5.30 in the evening to find that the parking which we had been told was available was, in fact, a good 10 minutes walk away, costing £11 per day.
We were shown up to the very top apartment, called The Penthouse (what a joke!). It was situated up 97 spiral stone steps, although nowhere in the literature did it say that it was unsuitable for disabled people or children, or even anyone with a problem of climbing those steps WITH luggage!
The apartment had a… Read Full Review

St James Court Apartments was basically a flat in a great location, 10 minutes walk from the main shopping street, (a real big hill between you and the main street, so maybe not for the old, disabled etc).
Was reasonably clean, (not to a good hotel standard, but pretty good). Breakfast supplies, e.g. cereal, milk, orange juice was provided. Fruit bowel and a selection of hot drink provided.
The room was decorated to a good standard, a little small, but we did have a lounge/kitchen and a… Read Full Review

I have stayed in several places in Edinburgh but none as nice as this, sure you have top hotels and good guest houses, but the convenience of the self catering aspect was brilliant. Excellent accommodation, no expense spared on its fixtures and fittings. I went with some girl friends and we had a damn good weekend. The place was clean and tidy and we had bread, milk, cereal and orange juice there waiting for us as well as fresh fruit, how thoughtful. Beautiful historic surroundings and a… Read Full Review

We stayed at the Apartments for 10 nights, with our 13 week old baby. We stayed in two of the apartments as we were late booking. Both apartments were clean and had all amenities needed (plus extras like the DVD player, microwave, washing machine and breakfast foods and fruit provided). The apartments were also serviced regularly throughout our stay.
The apartments were spacious and comfortable, especially apartment number 1 which had a huge living room. It was lovely to stay in an old… Read Full Review

St James Court is a complex of many appartments so judging it as a whole is wrong. Individual people own the various apartments and I feel sorry for the people that ended up with bad owners. My own experience was that the apartment was exactly as descibed. It was nicely furnished, comfortable, swimming pool ets etc. If I have a complaint then it is that the coffee that was there wasn't nescafe origonal, other than that we had a great base to see edinburgh. I would recommend the appartment to… Read Full Review

I liked it.....the St James' Court Apartments has character, is central, is clean, what more does anyone need in a self catering apartment. (although I think the word 'luxery' is stretching it a bit far… Read Full Review

About a month later after spending my honeymoon in St James Court apartments I thought I'd vent my thoughts and feelings on this accommodation before I proceeded to take further action to ensure that tourists consider looking somewhere else.
I booked the accommodation from an online agent with a special discount package if we booked for 4 days. Normally the rooms can range from 100 pounds to 250 pounds a night. I was under the impression that I was booking somewhere really luxurious because… Read Full Review
