With an impressive portfolio of both catered and self-catering accommodation options across the capital, it was a couple from Switzerland checking into the Richmond Place Apartments that were given a bottle of champagne to mark the occasion.
Chris Barnes, Assistant Director of Accommodation Services, at Edinburgh First, said: “This is a landmark number for us to achieve within such a short space of time. It demonstrates our growth in popularity as well as improved customer service levels, as it took us only three years from our rebrand to hit 200,000.
“With so many different venues to choose from, Edinburgh First has a great selection of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets so we aim to continue this trend and reach 300,000 bookings within the next 18 months.”
The lucky guests, Andreas and Regika Kraushaar, were presented a bottle of champagne by Edinburgh First’s Stiofan McFadden.
Andreas said: “We’ve been travelling around Scotland for three weeks and decided to stay in the Richmond Place Apartments whilst in Edinburgh so it was a wonderful surprise for us to receive the champagne.
“The location of the apartments was excellent – very central and convenient for getting around town. We loved the mezzanine-styled apartments and thought the staff were very friendly and, most importantly, the beds were very comfortable!”
