“lovely apartments, would return”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

we booked 2 apartments to accomodate 5. Both apartments were spotlessly clean and decorated beautifully - very modern with good facilities. They are situated a mile away from the centre of Edinburgh and it cost about £7 in a taxi. The kitchen was a decent size with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and there was a separate room with a washing machine, iron and ironing board. Wine glasses provided, along with bottle opener which makes a nice change and there is also an ice tray.
The apartments seemed almost full but we didn't hear anyone else throught the walls, must be well insulated. The only negative which can't be helped is that all the doors are fire doors which makes them heavy and they bang shut constantly - take a door stop!
We were very pleased and had a great stay, booked through alpha rooms which gave us a discount. Wireless connection, sky and free parking onsite. Would recommend!

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay at Oakhill Apartments Edinburgh this month.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Oakhill and thank you very much for giving us a 5 rating.

Following your feedback we have reviewed our fire door operation and have now sourced doorstops for each apartment. For Health & Safety we still recommend these are not left in place when the doors are not in use (i.e when the apartment is unoccupied or when guests are sleeping) as the doors prevent the spread of smoke and flames when closed but we do hope that this solution will go some way to make our guests stay more comfortable when moving from room to room.

We hope to welcome you again in the future and once again thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.

Kindest Regards

Hollie

Four of us (2 couples) stayed for two nights. Upon arrival after a long days drive from York we were greeted at reception by a very helpful staff member. We were given a guided tour of the 2 bedroom apartment. We were absolutely astounded at the quality and size of the apartment. Two full size bedrooms, two bathrooms one with a full size bath, fully equipped kitchen with washing/drying machine and fully functional living area. A welcome food basket and milk in the fridge. Even washing powder was supplied. Our rooms had views over both the forth of firth and Carlton hill and the castle. The views alone were worth the room rate. Parking on site was also a bonus. We could not have asked for a better apartment. We certainly didn't expect accommodation so wonderful.

Oakhill apartments. A fantastic experience from the first step into the doorway. The staff where attentive and helpful throughout the booking process as we had a strange request to check in at 12 midnight due to travel issues and this was organized without a problem.

The welcome basket is another stroke of genius, even though there is a Tesco literally outside the complex the last thing you want is to have to go hunting for the bare essentials first thing in the morning so everything from cereal to milk and tea is provided for.

All the rooms are furnished to an extremely high standard and coasters were soon found for the glass tables.

All in all an excellent stay and couldn't have asked for more.

Looking forward to staying again.

We have just returned from a short break in Edinburgh at the Oakhill Apartments. We had a wonderful stay. They are beautifully decorated, well equipped and have everything you could ask for. The welcome basket was a really useful but is located near a tesco and lots of nice places to eat. I would recommend this to family and friends and would use again if I revisit.

Thank you

Stayed at these apartments for a couple of nights. Checked in via friendly Hollie and were made very welcome. The apartments were first class and quiet. Location pretty good, not too far from centre of Edinburgh.
Would use again and recommend to friends (well maybe not as I want it to ourselves)

When we first arrived at the Oakhill apartments, our immediate thought was it was like walking into a show apartment, Every room was spotless and well equipt to a very high standard. This accomodation really is like home from home if not better as everything is so new and modern. There was a food welcome pack on arrival and clean towels. The location is about a half hour walk to Princess Street and about 15 minutes walk to the top of Leith Street near the Play House. Although there is a taxi firm which the apartments recommend that offer discount, we found that a black cab worked out much cheaper. We would definitely recommend these apartments.
