We booked into the apartments because we wanted a break from hotels and a chance to cook and do some washing. The added bonus was that there was free car parking which is expensive in Edinburgh. We only stayed the one night and found the accommodation adequate. The bus into and out of town was easy to use and there... More

these apartments all have very good views and are well appointed and conveniently situated, all in all a very pleasant stay. the apartment do show signs of wear and tear and can be a little shabby but still recommended. because of the excellent bus service you don't need to use your car to visit the centre of Edinburgh to have...

We booked a two bed roomed apartment overlooking the waterfront. The apartments appeared to be relatively secure being accessed by a fob which opened a central door to the building. There is also an underground carpark which is accessed via electrically operated roller shutters again you need a fob to operate these. We were therefore extremely disappointed to find our... More

We only stayed for one night and did not cook in the apartment but we were very happy with the accommodation (Block 7 No. 12) Everything was clean, it was spacious, nice views over the water. We had to contact reception to request milk but that was a minor oversight. As mentioned by others there is the minimum of toiletries... More

My wife and I recently stayed in these apartments. First impressions were great, the location was superb withviews of the Royal Yatch Brittania and the firths of fourth. The apartment blocks look quite new but the area around them looks like it is awaiting further development maybe work stopped when the recession hit. The apartment are furnished to a reasonable...

I recently stayed at the Hot-el apartments Edinburgh Waterfront for three nights. We were four adults and two children (aged 2 & 4) in our group. Despite having booked our stay a couple of months in advance, during check-in I was told that the booking was only valid for 4 adults and 1 child. I was told to pay GBP... More

We were in town to visit the Royal yacht Britannia and were happy to be outside the city centre. We had a car so the location was fine for us. We booked a two room apartment for four of us. Check in went ok, no wait but the gentleman greeting us although he had good English, it was not his... More

We visit family in Edinburgh regularly and would normally use a hotel if staying over but prefer apartments now we have a toddler. We've stayed in the area before with one of the other providers which aren't registered in TripAdvisor and wonder if the bad reviews against this provider might just be miss posted because we recognise all those faults....

We regukarly use apartments as alternatives to Hotels as we like the option to spend time "at home" and occasionally eat in. This apartment did not disappoint: clean, spacious and with all the equipment we needed in the kitchen. We were on the 4th floor and had a great view over the Firth of Forth. Asda and a few shops...
