We wanted to find a local firm to do our self assessment tax, after the retiral of our previous person. Bond CA appealed to us when we searched online, and right from the initial meeting we have been at ease with their friendly efficiency.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Edinburgh Waverley Station (Long Stay) Car Park - Edinburgh | APCOA, New St, Edinburgh EH8 8BH, UK – 0131 556 6340

I just had the most delightful, satisfying experience renting a car at the Waverley train station branch. First, I noticed how hard all staff were working-3 or 4 running to get cars, promptly serving the next customer in queue, professionally and courteously handling a customer with an issue, working hard at their computers. Then I had the pleasure of being assisted by Bronwyn, who welcomed me with a big smile and a can-do attitude. She was very efficient, knowledgeable, willing to be of service, and professional. She made sure I understood the details and how to work the car. She just made the whole experience easy and pleasant. Similarly, when I returned the car today, Phil was extremely polite, efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. I have rented numerous cars over the years, and I think this branch is exceptional. All staff seemed lovely. Granted, the location is somewhat chaljenging, as it is in an old parking lot several floors down but part of the charm of Edinburgh is that many areas are centuries old. Thats how the city is. Got a nice new car, worked brilliantly and no trouble at all.

Probably the only rental place for new drivers (licence holder less than two years). Good service, I got a call before pick up with a reminder of what documents are required and info about deposit, which was a nice touch. Would definitely use again.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

12 Annandale St, Edinburgh EH7 4AN, UK – 0131 557 0000

Very friendly and helpful staff. We were upgraded to a nicer vehicle as the one booked wasn't available. Also, Mark was very understanding of a change for drop off time to a few hours later than booked, as we couldn't check into our hotel until the afternoon. Everything go settled at no extra charge and with a smile. Great service, will recommend!

I’m always more likely to rent from Enterprise because their service is always pretty good and this location was no exception. Really friendly and accommodating staff, the location of the branch is really great too. Thank you and keep up the good work. :)

Colin from CMD recently took out repairs on the communal stair doors in my flat. He was able to come a day ahead of schedule and carried out the work in a timely and professional manner. The price was fantastic compared to other quotes we had and Colin, and his apprentice, were a genuine pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend CMD Joinery to anyone. Thanks again.

Danny the boss came out to quote for work needed to our Victorian windows and then 2 very charming young joiners came to fix all our sash & case windows. They fitted draft proofing, repaired snapped ropes, replaced weights and locks and made them all work like a dream. They also tidied up after themselves and arrived on time before I had to leave for work. I'm now looking forward to the winter! Many thanks for such a great job, I would have no hesitation in recommending these local joiners.

Car Repairs & Servicing - Garage Services around Edinburgh

Steins garage

18 Gordon St, Edinburgh EH6 8NA, UK – 0131 554 3423

As a young female I was nervous about finding a garage to take my first car to for a wheel bearing change. I followed advice from Reviews on this site and found Steins Garage. Everyone who I had contact with during my visit to Steins was highly professional, kind, friendly and honest. They gave me a fairly priced quote for the work that needed doing, booked my car in promptly for the work, and kept me updated whilst the car was with them. They did high quality work for a very reasonable price, and Craig checked the other wheel bearings to make sure they were safe too. I couldn't be happier with the service received and I will definitely use them again for any work that needs doing on my car. I would 100% recommend this garage to anyone!! :)

Brought my car in for a major service first thing in the morning and it was done well before lunchtime. Craig the mechanic was very honest and told me the spark plugs didn't need doing just yet and knocked off a fairly hefty chunk off my service bill. Would definitely come again if I needed an MOT/Service/Repair. Good location, close to the city centre and easily accessible.

ABS Motor Company - Garage Services / Car Repairs

7 Sunnyside, Edinburgh EH7 5RA, UK – 0131 661 2000

My first time using Reza and his team at ABS Motor Company and if I ever have a problem again with the car, I'll for sure be going back! Five stars all round for their customer service, patience, advice and expertise. Brilliant, brilliant company! Thank you!

A very good garage, nice and reliable and the workers there are extremely friendly. There are not too expensive either and have always fixed my car. Highly recommend!

Dalziel's MOT & Servicing Centre

17 E Cromwell St, Edinburgh EH6 4DE, UK – 0131 554 5909

I have been taking my car and my daughters car to Dalziels for the past 4 years and their level of customer service is second to none. They are a friendly, honest and trustworthy team and you can be sure that they will service / Fix / MOT your car in a professional and timely manner. They are certainly worth every penny. I cannot recommend them enough.

Cant fault their work at all. Reasonably priced. Always very helpful. My whole family take their cars there. Customer service is very good.

Cars For Sale - New & Used Car Sales around Edinburgh

Arnold Clark Edinburgh Seafield Motorstore

38 Seafield Rd E, Edinburgh EH15 1ED, UK – 0131 549 9790

I’ve had some problems with the car since I got it, I’ve had to run about a bit partly due to working from home. However in terms of the sale and eventual fixes to issues which to be honest are crucial they have all been sorted and agreed. Cant fault that. Only issue is in aftersales and taking ownership of issues to make it easier for the customer hence 4/5. Although I can’t fault the integrity of the sales side.

I only bought my new car today and from start to finish the whole experience has been first class William Welsh was great he answered all my questions arranged a test drive there and then sorted my finance called me when he said he would and made sure I was happy. I have no reason to believe there will be any problems but I feel confident if there was will would sort it I know I’m going to enjoy my new car


Summerside Pl, Edinburgh EH6 4PA, UK – 07518 984863

Just bought an A3 s-line from Mandi... cars immaculate inside and out especially for having done 92000 miles. Was very helpful in getting the process through. I would likely go back when done with this one and looking for next car.

Nice place, very professional.

Redpath & McLean

67 Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 554 9969

We had the great pleasure of dealing with Keith recently whilst looking for a new car. He was very relaxed and has a very no pressure approach to sales. He was more than happy to let us take the car out for a test drive by ourselves for as long as we wanted and got the small issues we found with it sorted in no time at all before we picked it up. On top of that he gave us a very fair deal on our trade in. You never know what you're going to get when you walk into a second hand dealer, but the reviews here speak volumes compared with competitors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his team at all. Edit: We since had a small issue within the 30 days and again Keith and his team have been absolutely brilliant in regards to getting it fixed for us. We couldn't recommend them more.

Recommended to me by my highly trusted garage, this company didn't disappoint. I see a car as just a means of transport, rarely buy and generally have little idea! Keith and Colin made the process as painless as it could be for someone like me! And when my garage (who know me quite well) advised me my first choice was probably not appropriate for me, they could not have been more helpful and flexible in letting me change my mind. I'm left feeling confident I've made a good purchase.

Car Body & Car Accident Repairs

Auto Sphere Body Repairs Limited

1 W Telferton, Edinburgh EH7 6UL, UK – 0131 669 9118

My partner brought her brand new car in today as unfortunately the passenger door had been scratched in a car park. The attention she received was excellent and we would definitely recommend this company. Very friendly helpful staff. Thanks again

Very friendly staff. Job was done as if by a touch of a wand, and I paid much lower price than what I was quoted else where.

McLaren Auto Body

6A Tower St, Edinburgh EH6 7BY, UK – 0131 285 0288

I used these guys after a bump as I did not want to be led by the hand by my insurer recommended garage. Bob was great and handled the insurance company as well as getting the car back in tip top shape. The work was done properly rather than just patching up as some garages do. Parts were replaced that needed to be replaced nothing more nothing less. The job was finished with a partial spray and the car is back to pristine. The guys at the garage are down to earth and don't try and give you flannel.

Bob is a gale of fresh air - he offers a friendly professional helping hand to those of us who are not at home with accident insurance claims. He and his team were speedy and effective and my no-claims bonus remains intact; my only worries were whether I ought to have been doing anything. Thanks very much - I would certainly recommend McLaren Auto Body for sound advice and service . JM

K & E Coachworks

7 Jane St, Edinburgh EH6 5HE, UK – 0131 553 2588

I had a very positive experience with K&E. The work was completed to an extremely high standard, billed as estimated and Joe and his team couldn't be nicer to deal with. Highly recommended.

Totally incredible service and work from these guys. Had a decent sized dent and a horrible set of scratches on my beloved Jaguar. Didn’t think that it could be rectified without a new bumper. However, the guys were superb from start to finish. A thorough look at the car and I was talked through what they would look to do. Received quote by email a day or two later. Quote was very competitive compared to others received. Booked in quickly and was told how long it would take. Picked car up yesterday and they had applied their witchcraft to it! Looks better than the day I bought it. Totally seamless job - would never have known there had ever been a problem. Car was washed for me whilst I settled up the bill - at the quoted amount. Service was five star from start to finish. Thanks guys and good luck for the future.

Car Rental for Edinburgh

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

67 Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 555 0555

Good, quick. Much better than the Waverley branch*. Bit out the way but kept decent rates during August which was great for us as Edinburgh resident looking to escape the fringe. *Edit: Roughly 9 months after making this review I got a call from the new area manager to let me know that Enterprise now have an option which enables Edinburgh residents to always have access to vehicles, with consistent pricing, even during August. Gotta say, it was great to get a response and update on this and I'm impressed with his attention to customer service. Will use again.

Rented a car via my insurance company's replacement hire car scheme. Really good service, allowed me to pick up the car on a weekend, a few hours after calling. I wasn't fussy about type, I just need wheels! Good customer service, and nice little hyundai I 10 hire car.

Alamo Rent A Car

Level 2, New St Car Pk, Waverley Station, Edinburgh EH8 8BH, UK – 0131 556 6340

I booked with Alamo, New Street, Edinburgh via a comparison site, having used the site on a few occasions. Have to say Alamo came out with flying colours. Beautiful car and an upgrade from what I'd booked. Bronwyn served me and what a delightful person she is. Very thorough, professional and helpful. Saw her as well when I returned the car and despite being under a bit of pressure as they were very busy, she was pleasant and remembered where I had been going! Would defo use them again.

Great service, very polite and helpful

Budget Car Hire Edinburgh

24 E London St, Edinburgh EH7 4BQ, UK – 0344 544 9064

I had read bad reviews about Budget - this branch was mentioned - and was anxious about the car hire I had booked. However this branch was extremely efficient and helpful, especially when the child car seats I had booked were not suitable. Excellent courteous customer care. Thank-you.

Even though there is a shortage on staff, Avis/Budget Car Hire is good value for money for 24hr van rental, has friendly staff and is very centrally located. Would use again!

Always used pentland from way back, usually the old veiwforth branch but over the years I've always had good service at pentland.

Tyre & Battery Depot

91 Lauriston Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9JB, UK – 0131 229 3410

Great tyre shop (and batteries) right in the middle of Edinburgh. Great price for tyres - had mine done today and bought a battery a few weeks ago. Excellent service. Very convenient if you live centrally or even if you just need things done it you're in the city.

John's fantastic, the only place I get my tyres. It's good to keep small business open like this. John's just as well priced as the major brands and you get a one 2 one service instead of just an in and out. Plus you get to help the wee businesses not just throw more money to the big brands. Same tyres, same if not better price and much better service!

Car Valeting & Cleaning

Fresh Car Valeting

2 Walker St, Edinburgh EH3 7LA, UK – 0131 510 7800

My appointment was easy to set up, there was no delay in answering my queries and confirming price. I had a full works valet done, inside and outside, it took the guy over 3 hours and he never stopped working. My car was left sparkling clean and looking as good as new. I was very pleased with this service and would highly recommend.

With a special occasion around the corner I decided to treat the car to a touch of TLC. I fired off a few emails and the Fresh Car Valeting first back and best dressed as they say! All communications after this were prompt and concise. Great gentleman turned up at the given time and got onto the job, luckily it wasn’t raining! We had the full internal valet and took about two hours. He removed all the internal matts and such and did a fantastic job in shampooing and cleaning the interior. My only regret is that we did not get the outside done but the interior was like new! Thank you guys.

Car Washes

Bubbles Hand Car Wash

67b Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 555 5736

I visited this car wash today for the 1st time. I visited at around 5.30pm, it did not take long to get served. The basic wash was £4.50 but I was offered a special which involved a wax spray (I think) for £6. I went for this. The car was washed by hand and went through about 6 different processes, which was pretty impressive. I was happy with the wash and would use this place again.

This place is amazing! Had the special Valet today and my car came out like brand new, the guys are great very professional and great attention to detail, didn’t even have to wait to long and the have a fabulous waiting area. 5* and keep up the great work !

Cannot fault the staff at Forthside, friendly, professional, carry out superb work with a high attention to detail. I honestly wonder how they can make my car look as good as new every time. Their prices are very reasonable & they are also extremely convenient with the mobile Valeting service, if I can't get to them they come to my work/home! Highly recommended!

Wash 4 U

4 Marine Esplanade, Edinburgh EH6 7LU, UK – 07521 850739

Very good valeting centre. My car was spot on. I done Mini valeting (£20) which was worth full. Owner informed me, only outside wash £3,with dry £5. Better then other manual car wash.

Great car wash

27 Summerside Pl, Edinburgh EH6 4NY, UK – 0131 553 2599

I contacted DGS to.ask for information and a quote. Blair came quickly to have a look at the job (installing a gas hob) and managed to do it there and then. He was friendly and helpful and I was very impressed. Even though the job was more complex than usual I was charged the very reasonable price quoted. Would definitely recommend Blair and his team.

Great service from a very knowledgeable technician who knows his gas appliances! I had a very unusual issue with my gas oven which caused it to keep cutting out, and rather that just replacing the thermocouple as I imagine most people would have done in that situation, he kept investigating until he found the problem, saving me a few £££ on an unnecessary thermocouple replacement. Very friendly service, too :)

T.B. Mackay Energy Services

Granton House, 219 Granton Rd, Edinburgh EH5 1AB, UK – 0131 552 6103

I've used them twice, for both electricians and heating engineers and both times they were excellent. Very polite, professional and prompt. Solved the issues on the spot. Quite pricey but I phoned around both times and everyone quoted very similar prices.

Some years ago I called T B Mackay for a second opinion when another firm told me my boiler was a write off and I needed to spend £ 3K on a new one. (Heaven knows how much they'd try to take us for now.) T B Mackay's guys came round and found the problem was a bit of dirt, and charged us (from memory) about a fiver. I've used them ever since, most recently for a boiler service. The cost of around £80 doesn't seem to have gone up for a few years. They have always been on time, polite, friendly and professional. Our boiler is now so ancient it doesn't even have an efficiency rating, but it has served us well. We asked the guy about replacing it and got lots of useful advice but no hard sell. So obviously T B Mackay will be one of the firms we ask for a quote. I can't comment on the negative reviews on here, but our experience has always been positive.

Aurora Heating Ltd

Edinburgh EH3 9ES, UK – 0131 466 8462

From product quality to final installation, everything was of the highest standard. And the staff is very polite; they were jovial and co-operative throughout, heeding special attention to my requirements.

35 Northumberland St, Edinburgh EH3 6LR, UK – 0131 202 9161

Very good service. Would recommend. Cleaners were very good and reliable. Would be great to see them become a living wage employer though .

The deep cleaning of the flat&windows had been done very well indeed and on time. I had some issues with the invoice as I guess I was a bit overcharged, thus I need to place just 3 stars. Still, I consider it to be a very good cleaning company in Edinburgh and will recommend it.

I went in the morning and by late afternoon the job had been done, everything had been explained, and I was a very happy customer. I've been sending friends to these guys for some years now and we are really pleased to be treated as human beings who may or may not quite understand all about computers. Their pricing is always lower than I might have expected. Warmly commended.

Incredibly transparent with what is happening throughout every single stage of the diagnosis which was a painless and surprisingly speedy process. Also....feel no shame whatsoever with admitting you know nothing. Not only were the analogies adopted wonderfully illustrative, I didn't feel in any way patronised and feel way more educated after having booked in my laptop for a number of issues. Don't hesitate to book in here...a downright gem of an establishment!!!

We have been going to this store occasionally for a year, both my wife and I have nothing but positive things to say about it and the gentlemen who work in it. Couldn't recommend higher, quality work, great customer service and very reasonably priced. You will struggle to find better.

Used these guys for a couple of year now, always got the job done so far no matter what I bring them. Yesterday I had a completely dead laptop with full charge - it looked a goner. He opened the back disconnected the battery or something then booted it back up. Fixed. No charge. 2 minutes.

They fixed my laptop very quickly and put a new hard disc in it so I effectively have a new laptop. They also cleaned it of viruses and put a new virus buster on it. All for about £90! Good value!

Laptop required a new charging port. For £99 they ordered and fitted a new one as well as carrying out an MOT of the laptop. Good service overall with the only complaint being that it took 3 days longer than I was advised with no communication, so ended up walking to the shop a couple of times to see what the deal was. Would definitely use again.

20 Arthur St, Edinburgh EH6 5BZ, UK – 0131 625 8731

We've been working with Marketspan since 2014 and they've been very easy to work with the whole time. Quick to respond to any issues or questions, the team are easy to talk to and don't try and complicate things, but do offer lots of options. We pay a very reasonable rate for the level of service we receive. As part of the subscription we pay, we're now having our website redesigned which is included in the cost - which I think is a great idea.

It is 2 years now that I work with Marketspan on my website and cannot find words to express how good these guys are. Very professional, with vast knowledge and they always deliver what they promise. Marketspan is always helpful, friendly and very responsive. I can personally recommend Dave, he is a real professional web developer and pure pleasure to deal with but the same I can say about all these guys. Do not waste time looking for other company to build your website. I can vouch for these guys.

Duncan Weddell & Co

20 Trafalgar St, Edinburgh EH6 4DF, UK – 0131 202 9179

Duncan is such a breeze to work with! He is very efficient and does a great job for us every time. I would highly recommend working with him if you want a high-quality product that is masterfully produced and always delivered on time!

Dont wast your money with large companies who build websites, most of them are about high turnover / profit margins. Duncan takes his time and gets the job done right, and from what ive seen a lower price. He continues to improve and give advice on what could help our business rank better on google. Some of this advice has been the difference between being on page 2 and the top of page 1. I would also like to give a mention about his ethics: A competitor in my industry seen my website performing well, and contacted duncan to get a new website built, and some seo and work done - Duncan turned them down! You cant buy loyalty you've either got it or you ain't! Cheers Duncan Danny - Alcatraz locksmiths

Lothian Domestics

14 Albany St, Edinburgh EH1 3QB, UK – 0131 516 2080

Very happy with my washing machine repair. Our engineer assessed and fixed the problem within 20 minutes and the rates are pretty fair. The company sends you reminder texts about your appointment and messages estimating when your engineer arrives which is very helpful. First time customer, would use again. Edit: our machine broke again around two weeks after my review above, it was the same fault again. I arranged for an engineer to come out to fix it via online booking. Liam arrived promptly this morning, and assessed the problem was a faulty part that he’d put in last time. These things happen, not a bother, I was able to book an appointment rather quickly online which is very helpful when I do shift work and work odd patterns. He was very careful removing the machine as to not rip our lino, so I do not understand these reviews that paint the engineers as careless when Liam was meticulous and professional on both visits. A mere ten minute repair. I wasn’t charged, which surprised me because I was expecting at least a call out charge, but due to the faulty part, I wasn’t. I’m still very happy with my repair and the service provided by Lothian Domestics. I’d review again but I don’t think google would let me, hence the edit.

Our problem turned out to be small but the online scheduling was easy and the service great. Very happy and will use again.

Wallaces Appliance Repairs

89 Dalry Rd, Edinburgh EH11 2AB, UK – 0131 337 6362

Phoned on Monday evening about a washing machine repair. Given a 3 hour time slot on the Wednesday. Repairman phoned half an hour before arriving during promised slot. Quickly identified problem and gave good advice i.e. Part costly, wouldn't cost a lot more to buy a new machine and given the age of my machine other parts may well be 'ready to go'. Appreciated his honesty and he made no attempt to sell me a new machine. Happily spent time getting door open (no mean feat). Although I paid a £40 call out charge felt this was very fair.

Superb establishment with remarkable service from very knowledgeable staff. We have bought obscure spares from here for a while. They replaced a dishwasher and fixed the fridge at very short notice. They replaced our washing machine with the same efficiency, and when it blew up three months later, they took over a fight with the manufacturer (H--R), and when it wasn't resolved they replaced our machine. We opted for a better brand (Bosch) which we paid the difference. Cannot recommend these guys highly enough.

Great service. Visiting in the area and dropped clothes off to be laundered while sightseeing. I did pay extra for low heat drying which i knew that I wanted to prevent any shrinking. Was so pleased when I picked my clothes up. Have recommended this location to others

They are amazing. My suit looks like new and is so soft I could curl up and go to sleep in it. Thank you Jody. Kindest regards, Suzanne


Leith, 3-4 Newkirkgate Centre, Edinburgh EH6 6AA, UK – 0131 553 1815

Very friendly staff and very clean and tidy...

some of the service is good like the chit chat with the employees but they have no clue on what up selling and consumer relations are and should be trained better in consumerism, i was sold an item "refurb" and you have the same item brand new for 50 pence more a week "with a 4k ultra option" and your staff did not try to up sell me for the better product but rather let me go into the agreement which i found weird as you would think the employees would know whats on the website/in the shop etc so i was not happy they did not try to offer me the better product "which most stores" would try to sell me a better option, ill stick to my original agreement with the product im getting but not to happy that no one made me aware there were other better options at a slightly bigger price which would have been very acceptable to me and i would have gone into an agreement for the brand new product...

Drain Clearance

Dial A Rod

39 Stapeley Ave, Edinburgh EH7 6QR, UK – 0131 558 3353

No other emergency plumber, drain company returned my call at 6pm on Friday 23rd December but Dial a Rod Services did. So relieved. Arranged an emergency call out on Christmas eve morning. Was very grateful for the support we received. Helpful, experienced, had all the equipment necessary and knew exactly what needed fixing. Job done. Good chat on the ladder. On with the festivities. Highly recommended.

After getting issues with a Buchan trap (a kind of U bend fr wast outside) that blocked once a month in the back communal garden and flooded our basement, we had to call in either the Council for emergency unblocking or a larger, similar sounding, company. This worked initially then a repeat flood would happen again a month or so later. We were just about to get the trap removed (this would have approached a five figure sum to dig out the deep manhole that was partially under a 3m high sandstone wall!), when Dial-a-Rod were recommended to us. They told me that the big companies would just jet it out but that wasn't solving the problem. The problem was the arteries had narrowed in the pipe and they said that debris had to be removed not just unblocked with a jet. They did so, and three years down the line and it's still been perfect, no recurring issues. Saved me a lot of money and disruption to my office (Architects) and I have recommended to other people. To some of the gripes about cost on here, I couldn't disagree more. Firstly, you are paying for their knowledge. In our case they did something efficiently as they had decades of experience. The previous attempts by other firms often spent far longer on it but ultimately failed. What would you rather have somebody efficient and good that may charge a little more or somebody cheap that doesn't do the job as well? Secondly, in my direct experience, they were not expensive in any case. Highly recommended.

I sold my property with McEwan Fraser Legal at Claremont House 130 East Claremont Street, Edinburgh. I met many staff members at McEwan over the time the house was on the market, and each and every one of them was professional, encouraging, caring and helpful. At times when I needed repairs done, they sourced workmen, At times when I was involved with a tenancy and a sale concurrently, McEwan staff liaised well with all other agencies. The link with Tempo Lettings proved to be a vital one, although involving more staff, communications were clear and helpful. I am grateful to everyone, too many to name, who helped me through a system that I could not have negotiated on my own. Thank you very much.

Excellent service all through the process, in particular the photography which looked brilliant. I'm sure this along with the efficient service of the team resulted in our property being under offer within a couple of days. All completed with ease and was kept notified along the way. Definitely recommend.

AR's breakdown recovery sorted us out 8am Saturday morning ... after the potholes in Edi got the better of us. Feared that the suspension was damaged, given the sound... ARG turned up swiftly, swapped the tyres, checked things out and left us confident enough to drive away. Really appreciated, great service, 5 stars out of 5.

Very professional, courteous and friendly service. Excellent work for a fair and decent price. I couldn't be happier and will definitely use them again in the future. Five well deserved stars.

Took my ford ranger wildtrak 2018 for a remap, I felt it was been held back so I left it to them and it's a completely diffirant drive, instant throttle response, more hp, torque, not getting much mpg atm as I'm full throttle playing off road.

With a family emergency I found myself away from home and in need of an MOT to allow me to travel. Although Thistle Autos could not do the work (class 7), they took a couple of minutes of their time to direct me to another garage and that could. Many others would not have had the empathy. Thanks guys, well done!

Brilliant car garage! Scott and his team were fair, honest and decent in their prices. Excellent customer service and I'll definitely be recommending them! Thanks guys!


Boyter Electrical Services Ltd

We have used BES a number of times, and consistently deliver outstanding service. Work carried out on time, professionally, and left the job complete to perfection and a clean, clear site. Can't recommend enough.

Its fantastic to get an electrician who is so dedicated to providing a positive experience and doing a great job. I have not been a fan of getting work done before but I feel I've found a company I can trust. It was faulty lights/wiring on this occasion but after waiting for an electrician to do work earlier in the year and never showing up, I now feel have a company that will, and provide a great service, so am planning more work in the near future. Actually next week!

Ideal Electrical Solutions (UK) Ltd

4 Parsons Green Terrace, Edinburgh EH8 7AN, UK – 0131 258 2750

Ideal Electrical Solutions (UK) Edinburgh came were great. I asked them about putting in another socket into a room. They replied to my request (which I sent on a Sunday night) first thing on a Monday morning, and came to see my flat within half an hour. The electrician was very friendly. After explaining that the work I was requesting would involve taking up the floorboards which I did not want, he explained to me the alternative solution which I could do myself. I very much appreciated this honesty. The four stars reflects only the fact that they didn’t actually do any electrical work, but I would call them again in the future.

I have found Ideal Electrical Solutions (UK) Ltd a pleasure to work with, very professional, no nonsense, get the job done organisation. It has been a pleasure doing business with them. I cannot rate them highly enough, if only other contractors took customer care and service to their hearts like Ideal do then we would all be much better served. Top marks from start to finish.

We feel very fortunate to have worked with the Knight Frank team specifically Tom Stewart Moore, Ran Morgan and Faith Pedan. Collectively they did an exceptional job selling our rural estate outside Glasgow, managing to secure a very favourable outcome during what was a very difficult period in the market. It goes without saying that we would not hesitate to recommend Knight Frank but a special mention goes to Tom Stewart Moore who worked tirelessly and with endless professionalism.

The service provided by the brilliant team of people working at the Knight Frank Queen St office is top notch! Their professionalism, efficiency and attention to detail is notably heads above other agents i have used in the past. You are treated very warmly and carefully through what can sometimes be a difficult process of selling or buying property. We have used their services 3 times in the last 4 years and would not hesitate to recommend or return to them. A huge thank you for guiding us successfully through transactions of both new style and New Town properties.

DJ Alexander Property Sales & Lettings

1 Wemyss Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6DH, UK – 0131 558 3000

My experience of DJ Alexander is very mixed. Due to this my review will be cut into two reviews due to the mixture of my experiences and it wouldn’t be fair for the good work to be overshadowed by the poor. So I recently had dealings with DJ Alexander Estate Agents at their office on Wemyss Place, Edinburgh. I was looking to buy a property and my initial dealings were with a lovely young and polite female called Bianca and although English wasn’t her native language communication with her was a breeze. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. After speaking with her I was put in touch with two viewing agents (see my second review) after dealing with the awful agents I stumbled across another professional and very helpful female called Sara Rankin, again this employee was very knowledgeable helpful keen and professional, I really cant describe how helpful she was. I was shocked to hear that she is administration staff and I must say her talents are wasted having being office based. I hope that both Bianca and Sara see this review and more importantly the relevant bosses see how valuable they are. If it wasn’t for these two people I wouldn’t have done business with this company. Well done girls!! Keep up the good work!! 5 stars forever. If anyone does business or seeks business with DJ Alexander please ask for Bianca or Sara Rankin. You will not be disappointed

I’ve been a landlord for 9 years and have avoided using agents because I thought it was a waste of money. I was proved wrong when I used DJ Alexander Let Service to find a tenant. I was very satisfied with their professionalism and their communication was excellent. I was also given advice on what to upgrade to achieve a higher rent. I dealt with Neill Bukes, Laura Mctaggart and Laura O’Donnell. The turnaround from presenting the flat to finding a tenant was 8 days. I also had the peace of mind the tenant went through a vetting process I’ll be using DJ Alexander again for my other rental properties.

Financial Advisors

Independent Women

Ronaldson’s Wharf, 2 Sandport Pl, Edinburgh EH6 6EU, UK – 0131 454 2343

Independent Women have provided general investment advice and services to me for more years than I care to remember - but if I asked them, I know they could tell me, immediately, how long it has been. They have always provided unbiased, professional advice in a relaxed, unpressurised environment. More recently they have taken me through the intricacies of retirement. As always, any questions are explained in a manner to ensure my understanding. I always leave meetings knowing that if I have subsequent questions, I will receive a prompt response by e-mail. Financial advice can be a somewhat dry, serious subject; I always enjoy my meetings with Lesley. I have no hesitation in recommending Independent Women.

I have consulted Lesley for many years regarding financial matters and everyone in her team has always provided a highly professional service whilst making me feel as if I was their most important client. Regular reviews are conducted to keep up-to-date with changing circumstances and Lesley has always taken the time to ascertain all the current facts before making recommendations which she explains clearly in terms I can understand. She answers numerous questions with great patience.

Dalbeath Financial Planning Ltd

Hudson House, 8 Albany Street, Edinburgh EH1 3QB, UK – 0800 061 4264

I met Matt for an initial consultation period as, being self employed, I wanted to check I was making the best use of my money. I found Matt to be professional, knowledgeable and most of all trustworthy. He gave an honest appraisal of my finances and could only recommend one product as all others were working well. There was no hard sell or pressure, just an honest objective view. Since then I have recommended Matt to friends and also used his services for a mortgage. The feedback from my friends supports my own experience which is that Matt is diligent, efficient and very personable. Highly recommended

Friendly, knowledgable and professional. I've now used Dalbeath Financial Planning to help me set up a pension and a mortgage and I've been very impressed with their services. I think they offer excellent value for money and will happily use them again.

We started with no plan, but David was happy to work with us and adapt and improvise as we went. The sheer physical input by the workers had to be seen to be believed and the end result exceeded our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company and would certainly use them again.

Lisa designed us a front garden. She did a fantastic job! She really listened to our expectation and concerned.We wanted a garden that would provide some privacy but wouldn't totally block the wonderful view we have in front of our place. I didn't think it would be possible, but Lisa managed to came out a great idea that made it just right! Moreover, She discuss about the budget openly which is very helpful for us. Lisa and her team work sufficiently. Her design is beautiful and practical. Our new garden looks pretty and unique. My son love stay in the garden and always refuses to leave.

Lisa designed a new front and back garden for us. With the front garden established since June 16 it is now blooming wonderfully; the diverse range of plants have added colour and height to the area. The contractors, that Lisa suggested and organised, were excellent, finishing on time and leaving a great job and a tidy site. Now the back garden will be done (hopefully!) in September to complete the set. We would highly recommend Lisa.

Sesh Hairdressing

50-52 Bernard St, Edinburgh EH6 6PR, UK – 0131 555 0708

I recently had my hair done by Rebecca after being recommended to go to her by a friend. I had a full head of highlights and a cut. I am absolutely delighted with the result. Rebecca was friendly, professional and achieved the colour I desired. Sesh itself is a lovely salon and all the staff I met were friendly and attentive. I will be continuing to have my hair done by Rebecca. I feel she has an in depth understanding about the colouring process and explained processes to me (in particular toners) in a way that allowed me to gain insight about how to achieve my desired hair colour while maintaining and protecting the condition of my hair! I highly recommend this salon.

Lovely first time experience. All staff were very helpful and friendly including the stylist I received - Taylor. I had a cut and blow dry and was very happy with the results. Will definitely book again

John Hall Hairdressing

16 Brandon Terrace, Edinburgh EH3 5DZ, UK – 0131 477 2973

Great hairdressing firstly, NOT a Turkish barber! John is an award winning hairdresser and well established. Appts not always necessary but best to book as they are very busy. You also get great banter free of charge!

Been getting my hair cut here for 15 years and the friendly professional staff has been largely unchanged over that whole period. Superb welcoming people. Great haircuts. Good prices.

Urban Edinburgh

38 Howe St, Edinburgh EH3 6TH, UK – 0131 225 8216

Absolutely love my hair, Keith is a great hairdresser. Everyone there was nice. But I liked that Keith was honest about how many visits it would take to get the outcome I was looking for (I needed a full head of highlights and toner on he first trip and a tint and toner on the second trip), and a haircut too. The prices where really reasonable considering it is so central and I needed 2 trips. Keith gave me an inclusive price for both trips. I was happy with my hair after the first visit, adore my hair after the second. Thank you so much!

A brilliant salon with such a lovely atmosphere. Keith is absolutely fantastic, nothing is ever too much hassle and I always leave so happy with my hair. Thank you!!

Really nice hairdresser. Friendly and good service. Best haircut I have ever gotten. Highly recommended and great price for what you get!

Salon 328

32 Montrose Terrace, Edinburgh EH7 5DL, UK – 0131 661 3882

Lovely salon! Jenny is an amazing stylist! She paid so much attention to detail with the texture, length and shape of my hair. I chose this salon to get a digital perm, having had some bad experiences with perms in the past, I would definitely recommend this salon for a great hair cut but also digital perms! Very happy with the result!

Yay, a hairdresser who really knows how to cut Asian hair (I have thick, black Chinese hair)! I was really pleased with my haircut and the service. I had a great time chatting with Jenny, the owner, who speaks English, Cantonese and Mandarin. Jenny is experienced and really knew what she was doing when thinning out my hair. (The image shows a lot of hair on the floor, because I took the photo right after I got my hair cut... Sorry about the mess. 😬) Will definitely come back again and recommend this place to others.

Above average selection of books. Helpful staff. Parking is an issue, but then when is it not? I just go on the bus.

Beautiful building. Lots of light & space. Staff & equipment totally up with 21st century technology. Excellent events for kids. Very friendly & helpful staff. Oh..... & great number & variety of BOOKS for all ages & tastes!

Stockbridge Library

11 Hamilton Pl, Edinburgh EH3 5BA, UK – 0131 529 5665

Would be helpful if there were quiet reading areas. Like the other libraries in town, seems very geared towards kids so not ideal if you're looking for a quiet place to study. Staff seemed very helpful and friendly.

Beautiful library with a friendly and welcoming staff.

Local Decorators

Borthwick Decorators (Edinburgh)

93 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3AS, UK – 0131 235 2733

David and his team did some fairly extensive exterior and interior painting for us a couple of years ago and we were thrilled with the results. The exterior paintwork has lasted particularly well and almost looks as good as new two years later. His team arrived promptly and worked tidily and conscientiously, while David was easy to reach, replied quickly to emails, and did as much as possible to accommodate last minute changes/requests. We're now repeat clients of Borthwick Decorators and know that we can expect a very high standard from them every time. Would happily recommend.

Repeat customer with David and his team now. David was really helpful in fitting us in for some interior paintwork at very short notice. As usual David was very professional with his assessment of the work that needed to be done and his team on the day showed the same levels of expertise and attention to detail that we had experienced previously. Would highly recommend David and his team, always very friendly approachable guys on the job and they always make sure you are entirely happy with the work that they have done before finishing.


101 Rose St S Ln, Edinburgh EH2 3JG, UK – 07376 612345

John came and gave us an estimate for our new flat, we needed it done quickly and he was there willing, friendly and what a great job. Very happy with his work and will keep a note of his details to recommend to friends and family. Thanks John

John did a great work in our bathroom painting the ceiling. He is very professional and left the place spotless. Very good price as well.

Venture Photography

1B, 17 London Rd, Edinburgh EH7 5SU, UK – 0131 652 8130

Fantastic day and everyone was lovely and made us feel so relaxed and welcome. The finished product was AMAZING. Flexible payment options too. Would definately recommend

Our experience was quite good. We were a bit turned off by Venture's style of "storytelling" photos, but they were more than happy to accommodate us for taking more classic style photos instead. I noticed that some reviews noted some privacy related concerns. I raised these with Venture and they guided me on what to do (check a box when signing some documents) to ensure my photos remained private. Our photographer was very good and very friendly. Overall I think their prices are overly inflated. I also would have preferred to receive proofs in my email, as with the current system I had to go to and from Meadowbank on three separate occasions (shoot, viewing, and pickup) which seems a bit excessive for people without free time.

Jonathon Fowler Photography & Videography

101 Rose St S Ln, Edinburgh EH2 3JG, UK – 07817 517604

Jonathon was awesome from the beginning (pre-shoot inquiry) all the way to the end of delivering our photos. Considering we were 3,000 miles away and we weren't able to talk over the telephone, Jonathon took all the worries away by always being responsive via email. He even gave us plan b options in case it rained on our shoot which we really appreciated. We were slightly worried about meeting a photographer we never spoke to but that was not the case when we finally met Jonathon for our shoot. Jonathon was welcoming and inviting; and made us felt comfortable throughout the shoot. Everything was easy with Jonathon. We can't thank him enough for being a part of our special day!

We had the best experience with Jonathon and his crew. We communicated from the US through email only, and never once was I stressed or worried about anything. Our pictures and video were perfect. He was able to capture our day perfectly. The photos really are a true representation of our wedding day. I HIGHLY recommend Jonathon Fowler!

Nadin Dunnigan Photography Ltd

12a S Charlotte St, Edinburgh EH2 4AX, UK – 0131 507 0440

We were recommended to Nadin by a friend and loved her example work online so much that we organised to meet for a coffee to discuss our wedding! Nadin and her now husband Mo kindly agreed to be our photographers in Tuscany and we could not have asked for better coverage of our big day. They arrived a couple of days earlier to scout out some amazing locations close by and the results were beyond what we were looking for! She (and Mo) was brilliant with us from start to finish and even now almost a year after our wedding she is still going above and beyond to help us. Could not recommend Nadin high enough!

Nadin got the best possible photographs because she made everyone feel so relaxed and at ease. She seems to intuitively know how to manage people to get the best shots and make everyone look amazing!

18 Duddingston Loan, Edinburgh EH15 1SN, UK – 07738 762620

First rate outstanding service. As a regular customer, I have been grateful to Jamie for completing four jobs for me. On each occasion I have been impressed by the excellent standard of the work. Jamie is a friendly, punctual, highly skilled, efficient tradesman who takes pride in his practice. He communicates effectively in discussing jobs and has always evidenced integrity of character. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone in need of a genuine competent plumber with proven credibility.

Jamie and Albion plumbing are a reliable and excellent provider. I have used them recently to replace my shower screen and on several occasions across the years. They have always given me expert advice and guidance and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

F Gray Plumbing And Heating

8 Albany St, Edinburgh EH1 3QB, UK – 07860 486469

Honest. Told me I'd be cheaper going straight to the manufacturer of my boiler as the diagnosis sounded complicated and therefore potentially expensive.

Gary the owner gave me an estimate the same day I contacted him to fit two new radiators. Despite being busy, his plumber, Graeme, was able to fit them first thing the following day. The work was quick and faultless. Both Gary and Graeme were very pleasant and the cost was incredibly reasonable. I would highly recommend F gray to anyone and will definitelt use them in the future

Paramount Printers Ltd

12A Bonnington Rd Ln, Edinburgh EH6 5BJ, UK – 0131 667 4441

Paramount Printers aren't JUST fantastic printers, they also are fantastic people who helped us out in a difficult situation. When our lovely, idiot cat went missing, Paul and Nicky pulled out all the stops and were prepared to stay late to print off flyers. On top of this above-and-beyond support, they did not charge us for the missing cat flyers. They made a very stressful situation much easier with their professionalism, willingness to help, and incredible kindness. And luckily, we found our cat safe and well!

I've worked with Paramount for a large number of years and the main reasons I continue to do so are trust and ease. I know I will get a high quality job from them but also that they will make it simple for me. They have a very personal approach which means they work to fit around my systems and practices. They also suggest ways to improve our practices and the final job, especially in line with new print technology. I can spend my time on other things and trust that they are covering what needs to be done.

Copymade Printers

3 W Maitland St, Edinburgh EH12 5DS, UK – 0131 229 5432

Excellent customer service! I required A3 Prints for a design portfolio and was unsure which finish to go for. The kind gentleman offered to print off samples of my work to ensure colours ran true to what was on the computer screen and to see if I preferred the matte or shiny finish. Binding was also only £2 and made my work look very professional, would highly recommend it here. A daunting process made easy with no errors, minimal waiting time (15 minutes) and very helpful staff :-)

Friendly and helpful staff; provided proofs for me to check if i was happy with the great quality prints, as well as a quick turn around time for the job, not sure what else to ask for. Will be using again, highly recommended!

Prontaprint Edinburgh

Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment. We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it. The only charge for an item is postage and packing (and that should be charged at cost), unless you find the item within your local area. Once you have registered on the site and entered the first part of your postcode, you will be able to look for items within EH6, Edinburgh or Edinburgh. A national UK database of free stuff !

Recycling Centres around Edinburgh

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Fillyside Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6RD, UK – 0131 529 3030

I have always found most of the staff here very helpful. However, I tried to phone direct about something and was sent to a general council number and put on one of the council's interminable loops of numbers to press - none of which were relevant to my query. A direct number and a person to speak to would be far more useful.

Helpful staff! Nice layout. Very quick

Edinburgh Recycle

Mitchell House, 5 Mitchell Street, Edinburgh EH6 7BD, UK – 0131 554 7564

Edinburgh Recycle is a family owned business with an outstanding reputation of providing their customers with quality products and services. They are very professional and courteous and truly care about giving their customers a "World Class Best Practices" experience. Edinburgh Recycle has my highest recommendation.

Grassmarket Community Project

86 Candlemaker Row, Edinburgh EH1 2QA, UK – 0131 225 3626

Local cafe helping out the community. I love that my tour guide recommended this place which the members of the tour were happy to support. Enjoyed the coffee and sweets.

Lovely, kind people working here allowed us to keep our luggage at their cafe for a couple of hours while we sorted out accommodation elsewhere. They didn't charge us or anything, and were very friendly and courteous. Looked like a nice place to go. Thanks again!

Removals & Storage Household

Kerr’s of Edinburgh - Removals and Storage

3 Albert Rd, Edinburgh EH6 7DP, UK – 0131 555 3949

This is a review for getting a quote only. I had asked for a quote for an upcoming move, which was handled with courtesy on the phone, in person and via email in a timely manner. The person coming round for an estimate was friendly, knowledgeable and professional, answering all my questions I had as a novice to organizing a move and on top of that explaining me processes involved from their side, which helped putting my stressed-out self at ease. The quote I had received was priced competitively and fair and I received it quickly after the estimate. All in all this was a positive experience, even though I ended up not requiring the services due to a change in my circumstances. I will definitely keep their details for the future.

Kerr's were excellent from start to finish. They removed everything efficiently and had our belongings in store for some months. They were always willing to open the containers when we needed something, once doing this at very short notice without complaint. Efficient removal back to the house and no damage. Highly recommended.

Broughton Removals Ltd

1 Carron Pl, Edinburgh EH6 7RE, UK – 0131 553 3333

Fantastic service from start to finish. Mr Sonny Munro was my estimator and his years of experience and lack of hard sell unlike other companies that came round comforted me. They were not my cheapest quote but I'm delighted I chose them as on the day of the move I had 3 excellent movermen for whom nothing was too much trouble and left me happy in my new home. Would recommend

First class service from a first class company. The team at Broughton's were brilliant from start to finish. They were highly professional with both ends of the move, including the storage aspect. When one sofa did not fit they bent over backwards to help until a different solution could be reached. Professional, friendly and made a stressful time fun. I Cant thank Ian and the team enough.

Precision Removals & Storage Ltd

67 Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 552 7608

Precision made our removal day a pleasant experience. From our initial meeting with Russell who provided excellent guidance and advice and a good value for money quote, to the team of guys who moved us out our top floor flat in the city centre on the hottest day of the year, we were delighted with the service. Careful fast and professional we couldn't ask for more... even our vast selection of houseplants made it in one piece! Underpinning everything is a real ' can do' attitude with courtesy and good humour.

Just OK, would give only 3/5, and I am chinese. but everything is reasonable

Los Cardos

224 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 8PD, UK – 0131 555 4411

Love it. Bit mean with the jalopenos though, as that's what makes a good Mexican. Chucking in the jalopenos. Apart from that though it's the best Mexican in town. Definitely.

Great burritos and quesadillas. Didn't give 5 stars because they only take cash which is dodgy. Also staff isn't particularly cheerful.

Callum is reliable, efficient and professional. We have used him time and time again. Yes I would surely recommend.

Calum from ETC Locks is very professional and quick at attending, found him a tad pricey but was happy with that. It's sometimes nicer to pay more for quality than less for less. ETC locks was a recommendation from Property Repair at 52 Montrose Terrace and one I'll be recommending to others.

The guy that usually works there is so lovely. I own a business not far, and so I came on my break, (it was my first time) to timspons and I came in respect to my new keys (I wanted another pair made) he instantly recognised my keys and the fact he made them for the last tenants and showed me the doubles (he saved me money) ever since then I’ve been going to him for many other things such as I’ve had my watch screen repaired, he punched holes in my belt to fit me, my shoes stretched and bought some heel grips (which are of amazing quality) thank you! I am a loyal customer and will continue coming here for any of my Timpson related needs! Just to add the services are always of good quality, very quick and good prices

Good service in the shop & key's made really quite quick.

City Cabs (Edinburgh) Ltd

1 Atholl Pl, Edinburgh EH3 8HP, UK – 0131 228 1211

I was picked up from edinburgh airport on my return from Ibiza. I left a bag in the taxi with all important documents including passports. I telephoned city cabs and within 30 minutes by bag was returned to me at my home address by the very same taxi driver !!!! how honest and efficicent is that his name is JOHN CAIRNS and we cant thank him enough

The drivers are always good, however the call centre and booking system is always terrible. I booked a taxi today using the automated system at 4:50 to get a taxi to collect my car at 5:30. Realising at 5 that I might not get a taxi in time I called up and was told that the taxi would be five minutes. I waited until 5:20 when I realised it was pointless and called to cancel. The operator was rude and claimed that my booking using the automated system was somehow to blame. The garage is now closed and I won’t be booking with Citicabs again. By all means use the taxis in the town but don’t bother calling.

Television Repairs & Servicing

Sound and Vision Technical Services

Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BX, UK – 0131 553 2126

Absolutely stellar service. I rang up to arrange to bring my elderly television in, and when I described the problem, Paul told me what the issue was likely to be, and what it would be likely to cost to put right. When I brought it in, he looked at it for less than a minute, saw that it was in 'deep standby', turned it on for me, explained what had happened and why, and refused to take any payment. He also offered me a free second-hand remote control. I chose to bring my telly there because of the brilliant reviews he had received, and he definitely deserves every one of those positive reviews. Although there was nothing actually wrong with my telly, it's not something I could have done myself, and I would have been perfectly happy to pay him for his expertise, but he wouldn't take anything. I'm completely delighted, and recommend him wholeheartedly. He clearly knows his stuff and it's fantastic to find someone who could have taken the telly in and charged a lot of money, but didn't. I'd give him ten stars if I could.

Always friendly, helpful and extremely competent. Have used them on several occasions. Highly recommended!

Richer Sounds, Edinburgh

1B Chambers St, Edinburgh EH1 1HR, UK – 0333 900 0026

I originally found Richer Sounds through Amazon as I was looking for an amp to power two 100 watt vintage speakers my Dad bought in the 1970s. I spoke to a knowledgeable friend about the Amazon speakers and he suggested that I go into the Richer Sounds shop to get some advice. All in all a very good experience, it is quite a big ticket item for me so I was happy to make the purchase in the shop as I think I now have a product which I am comfortable will work well. Also, I have had a very nice email asking how everything has gone etc.

Honest advice from knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff coupled competitive prices on quality products makes Richer Sounds the best place for audio visual kit. Recently had a TV fail under warranty, no problems getting a credit note and good advice on choosing a replacement model. Would definitely recommend.

Veterinary Surgeons

Dundas Veterinary Group

10 Lochend Rd S, Edinburgh EH7 6BP, UK – 0131 659 6648

I have used this Vets for years and find them very good and friendly and they never have tried to get me to purchase extra goods or services,which other vets have. They are in my opinion efficient, and trustworthy I wouldn't use any other practice. My animals have remained healthy under their care.

Always had great service, although thankfully haven't had to go in much. To be honest, don't have much to compare to price wise, but don't seem extortionately expensive. Staff always professional and helpful.

Excellent vet practice. Have tried others but will be staying with this one.

Excellent care received during our time with our sheltie Tara 14 years old Went to them after I got my first cat/birman Was a very snowy day freezing cold, waited ages for the bus Went in then realised I had stupidly forgotten my purse When I explained she point blankly said no and to asking Audrey who I was hoping Would know me and know I’d be ok etc, no She wouldn’t even ask her, No to leaving serena at the surgery as it was so cold I didn’t want her outside again then back again No and was quite abrupt too 3 stars for caring for Tara and receiving excellent care Zero stars due to your receptionist uncaring and lazy attitude

Window Cleaning Stuff

31 Lorne St, Edinburgh EH6 8QW, UK – 0131 553 5851

Received a faulty product and had no reply after emailing twice on 17 & 22 May. Not impressed and expected better. My item was an applicator and I noticed the rubber grip was peeled half off when first using. Once this issue came to light it was quickly sorted in line with previous service I have received and what was expected. Denis

Window cleaning stuff is a brilliant company been using them for years!! Great to deal with. Professional and friendly stafff and they really reward loyal customers. Will be using them for many more years to come.

Catering Hire Firms

Nisbets Catering Equipment Edinburgh Store

102 West Port, Edinburgh EH3 9DN, UK – 0131 215 1876

The short review - excellent staff who will help you make the right choices for all things culinary. Longer version - Nisbets are the go to supplier for all things catering, but having this shop means you can browse many of their items in the flesh. Not as good a range as the online store, but the staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and can direct you to the best stuff, often based on experience of working in the industry - invaluable. Anything from the catalogue can be ordered quickly too.

They have a nice, well-priced range of most of the items you could hope to find in here. The staff are very friendly, helpful and they aren't trying to sell everything to you. Nice place, I will be back.

The guys here saved a wedding by fulfilling an last minute request for an outdoor PA. An hour before the ceremony was due to start, it was realised that the organisers hadn't provided a system for playing music in the outdoor venue. Within 30 mins PA Hire had delivered and installed the system in the Royal Botanic Gardens and the wedding was able to go ahead, right on schedule. Thanks very much guys - you really saved the day!
