“The Moorings is a wonderful vacation rental”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Moorings. Di was a pleasure to deal with during the booking process and it was lovely to meet her and her partner. The apartment is spacious, well-appointed and located in a vibrant part of Edinburgh that has ready access to transport, restaurants and shopping facilities. Highly recommend staying at this very reasonably priced vacation rental.

“Spacious, comfortable accommodation in a good location”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We booked this apartment for 7 people, two in each of the three bedrooms and one on the sofa bed in the sitting room. The owner, Diana Callander, was accommodating and thoughtful in her communications and recommended a superb place for breakfast, just a five minute walk away, called Mimi's.
The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. There was a shopping mall close by as well as the Royal Yacht Britannia.
We only stayed one night but would definitely go back again and can easily recommend this as a great place to stay in Edinburgh.

“Fantastic - spacious and brilliant location”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Can't say enough about this amazing apartment. Home away from home. Comfortable, warm and spacious. Everything was of a very high standard without feeling like a hotel. Di and Lenny were the most obliging people to the extent of taking my husbands suit to be dry cleaned so we didn't have to worry about finding somewhere to get it done. The buses were just across the road at the ocean terminal along with a supermarket and anything else you might need or want. M and S simply food are very limited in what they have but if you order on line it can be delivered to the Ocean Terminal free of charge for you to collect. If like me you don't like cooking there are heaps of very good eateries close by. Will definitely return.

“Brilliant, spacious and equipped with everything and more you could possibly need.”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at the flat for four nights at the beginning of August 13, two friends from Germany and two of us from Coventry. We have been going to Edinburgh for the last three years for the tattoo and this is the best accommodation we have had to date. So much so I plan on booking it again for next year. It is very spacious and totally well equipped. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and buses close by so no need to use the car. There's also a supermarket (towards Newhaven) within walking distance for those who don't wish to eat out all the time.
I can't recommend this flat highly enough. Diana, the owner, is so accommodating and so friendly and truly interested in your comfort. Her personality shines through in the flat.
Big thanks Di for a fantastic stay

“Spacious, Comfortable and Very Well Located Accommodation”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Having discovered the Leith area on a previous visit to Edinburgh, we were keen to enjoy its competitively priced and well-connected facilities once more, so settled on The Moorings after finding it through the Trip Advisor site.
Three of us stayed here in March and the flat did not disappoint. Well located for public transport and with a fine selection of local shops and restaurants a few minutes walk away. The property itself is spacious enough for everyone to relax comfortably if the weather is not great, but arranged well for people to eat and socialise together, as well.
Well equipped, clean and well maintained, I would recommend to anyone looking for a family-sized property where you can leave your car safely for the week and explore the city from the numerous local buses.
The owner clearly cares about the welfare and enjoyment of their guests and the wealth of positive comments, demonstrates that visitors are keen to return once they have experienced this fine holiday home.
