Testimonials from
Industry Partners

Annie Marrs, Sweet Venues

Every year we look for accommodation for our staff and for ourselves. I wouldn't stay in any other property other than a Nestival property. The team look after you, are honest about budgets and locations and keep all their property to a high standard. I sleep well at night knowing that my staff are in a safe, secure and comfortable home - after all it's their nest for the fest! Plus it's always a delight to pop in a get a big cuddle from Flynn!

Charlotte Crone, Assembly

Nestival have been fantastically proactive in helping me find accommodation solutions that fit my budget and location requirements!

Barbara Stanton, The Lady Boys of Bangkok

This is the third year we have sourced our Fringe accommodation requirements through Nestival. Their accommodation is reasonably priced and the staff are always very helpful.

Darren Neale, Greenside

We always recommend our clients to use Nestival, They are affordable, super knowledgable of the Fringe/Edinburgh market, nothing is too much trouble and moreover they are lovely folk!

Deborah Crewe, Grid Iron

Grid Iron prides itself on how we look after our colleagues and we expect a lot when looking for accommodation for them. In Becki and the team at Nestival we have found a company whose standards match our own. Working with them is a joy, from letting them know our requirements, finalising contracts to the care and attention they provide when our colleagues are in residence. The team go the extra mile and deliver every time. I have no hesitation in recommending Nestival for all your accommodation needs. They really do provide a home away from home.

Hamish Morrow, Pleasance

With both staff and acts giving every bit of their energy to the Fringe throughout August, finding somewhere nice for them to rest their heads at the end of the day is an absolute must. Nestival help make the process easy, with a friendly team who can provide accommodation to fit a range of budgets and requirements. Their team are always ready and willing to help find that ideal home from home.

Ollie Hester, Underbelly

Underbelly have used Nestival for over three years now and have been consistently impressed with their quality of service, standard of apartments and can-do attitude. We have accommodated both staff and performers across a variety of Nestival properties, and where we’ve been unable to find something at first glance, Nestival have always endeavoured to go above and beyond to find us something more bespoke that fits our requirements. From first enquiry, throughout the booking process, during the stay and post-event, Nestival have consistently offered an outstanding accommodation solution.
