Having stayed here in January 2014 I had no hesitation in booking again but maybe not for a third time. Again, we had a 2 bedroom apartment with lounge/kitchen. Well equipped but the rooms were looking tired. There were marks on the curtains, the headboards and I don't know when the valances were last changed. Both the en-suite and bathroom... More

We stayed in a 3 bed apartment as two families in block 7 room 27(9th floor) and were pleased with a clean and functional apartment with excellent views all around the city, especially the Royal Yacht. The receptionist was very polite and helpful and the directions to the room were excellent. Parking is a bit hit and miss but with... More

Visited during half term October 2014. Certainly cannot fault the location looking over Firth of Forth towards fife. Bus stop nearby means you can get bus to city centre in 15/20 minutes - don't even think about driving your car into the centre and trying to park, some of the most extortionate prices in UK. However, we flat that the... More

A most beautifully presented apartment with fabulous views over the Firth of Forth. You can just sit and watch the sun rise and set through the large French Windows. Immaculately clean in all areas with excellent facilities. Although a little out of the city, there are plenty of easy bus routes that are frequent and inexpensive. Walking distance to fairly...

Absolutely superb apartments. All mod cons, warm, accessible, comfortable, great views and much more. Leith and city centre not far way. We will use these every time we stay from now on. Book it now folks :-)

Was looking forward to our stay in these apartments but were very disappointed from the outset. The entrance had a strong chemical smell, similar to that of public toilets. The lift only went up! You had to walk down the stairs with your bags etc on exit. The apartment had great potential - lovely view, reasonable facilities which were perfectly... More

Me and my partner were taking a trip to Edinburgh to celebrate my birthday. We took a short 10 minute bus to the apartments, which looked lovely from the outside. As we got to reception the man took our ID and bank card for the deposit. He then asked if either of us were 21. I am 19, and my... More

The views from our apartment was amazing. We could see the harbour, the forth bridges and city centre skyline. The apartment was very well equiped with excellent facilities. It was like staying in a penthouse apartment. The rooms are a great size lots of storage & hanging space and the views of the harbour from our apartment was fantastic &... More

Lovely modern apartment, with just about everything you need for a comfortable home-from-home stay. We were upgraded to a 2-bed apartment [8/17], with a balcony overlooking the Forth, but it was disappointing the balcony doors wouldn't open for the whole of our stay. Maintenance came to look, but couldn't fix - this was probably the only negative point. As many... More

Several stays here have never dissappointed. Easterly facing apartments give great views across the Forth and the 'old lighthouse' that at night has panoramic views of dawn light and twinkling bulbs, perfect for sitting, talking and that good old glass of wine...or two. More intimate than hotels with space your own in a very well equipped and comfortable apartment. Wifi... More
