I cannot see anything wrong with the layout of the website. All works well but the google maps takes a little time to load.
I thought it may be a professional job, is it?

BTW is you name Craig Douglas or Anna Morris? Laughing

Hi Craig Douglas and welcome. I loved your apartment, just the place to escape the August heat - but not in my budget Crying or Very sad yet........... Exclamation

The only negative comment I'd make about your site is the small text - but then I'm a silver surfer Wink

I thought your place sounded cheap at 15 per person per night, but was shocked when I saw your price page. I couldn't see where you got that price from and I have to say, it did put me off.

Craig

Admittedly I only looked at the homepage and the photos and for those I'm very impressed. You've used very original colours, an easy layout, print which can easily be read and bloody good photos of a stunning flat. I'm going to keep it in mind for friends.

I've seen every kind of gallery, yours is handsome and the photos change quickly.

I'm not going to wish you good luck 'cause I don't think you will need it.

Me too! I'm not a maths genius, but 4 x 15 = 60 and your cheapest per night price on the prices page is 135 Confused
But anyway, the site looks very professional, the photos lovely, I really don't think you need to advertise a discount price on the homepage!

Hi Margaret and La vache,

Thanks for pointing out the 60 statement on the home page.
I think I will remove this as it gives wrong impression.
It was correct last year and is only slightly out this year as if you stay for a month in our lowest period the online booking system applies a long stay discount.

However thanks for feedback -I don't aim to be targetting the budget market and this therefore portrays wrong image.

Cheers Craig

Craig

your apartment will sell itself - and not on price. Don't make false claims of it's cheapness as this will not only put off the people who are looking for a bargain, but will confuse those who can afford, and are willing to pay for, the luxury and style that your property obviously has.

I think that it looks great, and am ready to move in!

My only suggestion is that you could have more details about Edinburgh, and remind us why we should chose to go there. Your site happily sells why we would want to stay at your apartment if we're going to Edinburgh, but tell us why we would chose Edinburgh over other city breaks. Even those of us who have been and enjoyed previously could do with a reminders of why to return, and info on what's new.

A stylish and contemporary web design that reflects the property.
I don't like the budget bit on the front page, however, it lets it down.
