“Lovely lush luxury lochend!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Booked two apartments here one for myself and my husband and one for my daughter and her 3 friends arrived earlier than expected and luckily reception allowed us to check in early with no extra charge. I booked the lyxury apartment for myself and my husband this apartment was lush! Water bed in the masterbedroom upgraded decor than the standard leather suite and feature wall paper, the price was not much different than the standard so was happy for what we paid. The standard apartment was also nice basic but clean warm and had tea coffee sugar and milk waiting in the kitchen which I thought was a nice touch. Their were instructions on how to use the appliances which helped. The tv in the bedroom did not work but this is due to the digital switch over which is understsandble. The apartments are large enough for up to 5 People and come equipped with everything. The carpets are a little worn but as I said can't complain for the price we paid I think some people pay 3 to 4 star prices and expext top end luxury you get what you pay for! Apartments are cenerally located bus route right outside clean quiet safe surroundings friendly staff will not hesitate in returning!

These flats were perfect for a hen/stag weekend or any large group booking. Staff were really accomadating allowing us to check in & decorate the flat prior to the hen arriving. As there were similar parties booked in the same block there were no issues with noise (either us being too noisy or hearing anyone else). We were able to stay as long as we wanted on check out day & although it seems silly there was plenty of toilet paper (in fact we all had a good laugh about just how much was there) and things like washing up liquid/salt/pepper - alot of self catering expect you to provide your own. Although not spotless it was clean enough and I would recommend to anyone

Room Tip: If you speak direct to the apartments they will bend over backwards to help you

Friendly staff and a lovely clean apartment. Having booked for two nights over new year we were given an upgrade to a better apartment on arrival - with no extra fee. The price was very reasonable compared to other prices locally at this time of year. The staff were really friendly and we felt very welcome.

Stayed at these apartments over christmas and new year, 10 nights in total, check in was quick and smooth, the apartments were easy to find, reception was nice, very quirky and different, was shown to my apartment which was in building149 the apartment number was 8, upon arriving into edinburgh it was freezing! and when i was checked into the apartment i was surprised the heating had already been put on, i have stayed at many apartments and have never had the heating and lights on for my arrival, this was great and much needed, their was also tea, coffee, sugar and milk left in the apartment complimentary which again was well appreciated!!

The apartments are convenietly located next to 3 mini markets, tesco is just down the road aswell as is The Foot of The Walk which is a family friendly pub/restaurant at the end of the street serves great fish and great prices!

My apartment was a 2 bedroom apartment, it was a great size for my family of 4 everything was in the apartment all the cutlery, towels, bedding and pots, pans and plates.

The apartment was clean and smelled fresh on arrival, the apartment was cleaned every 4th day and bins and towels were changed on the third day, i did need the bins changed more often but i just left my bins outside the apartment and housing keeping picked then up.

Their is parking outside the apartments i booked direct with the hotel and got the car parking for free i would not have been happy with paying £8 per day which is what i was told it was.

I loved these apartments, reception was great with info on edinburgh, bus times made me feel very welcome, i will definately be returning to the apartments thanks for a great time!!!

We chose these apartments as they were conviently located to visit our family. The reception area was an interesting mix of styles and the receptionist was quite a character but gave no information about what to expect such as when the flat would be cleaned. We had a fourth floor apartment and didn't hear much of our neighbours. The flat (2 beds, one en suite) was reasonably sized but we were very disappointed with the furnishings and that it smelled of tobacco smoke. The carpet was tatty and didn't look very clean. Blinds were grubby and there were holes in some of the them. There were no matress protectors on the bed and I was pleased to find a clean sheet that I could put on our bed. The sofas in the lounge were hard and not comfortable. The TV reception was mixed and you needed to be firm with the remote control. The kitchen was adequately stocked and the milk and the cornflakes and the teabags were very useful. The kitchen and appliances were clean. The apartments are an easy bus ride fron the city centre on the 34 bus route and Ocean Terminal and Leith are also a short bus ride away. We know Edinburgh very well but I think some tourist information would be useful for other visitors (like the alternative 25 bus route). We paid £60 a night for the apartment which I think was reasonable value but I would have been unhappy to pay more. I would use the apartments again but would demand some more cleaning next time.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review of Lochend Apartments, firstly can i thank you for kind words ragrding;

- conviently located
- the reception area was an interesting mix of styles and the receptionist was quite a character
- The kitchen was adequately stocked and the milk and the cornflakes and the teabags were very useful.
- The kitchen and appliances were clean
- The apartments are an easy bus ride fron the city centre
- reasonable value

Regarding the standard of the apartment, i am sad to see that you do not feel that the apartment was of adaquit standard, we do try and provent guests from smoking in the apartments, we do have a few smoking apartments however they are only let out to guest whom specifically request these. The apartment in which you were allocated was a non smoking apartment and so no one should have smoked in this apartment, we have since spoken to housekeeping regarding this matter and can now assure you that if this sort of incident arises again, the apartment will not be let out again until the apartment has been fully aired.

Regarding the curtains and carpets being a bit tatty, we are in the process of changing all carpets but hope that you can appreciate that this is a timely process, which we do hope to be finished by July.

We do have mattress protectors on all beds, and have reminded Housekeeping to ensure that if ever they are missing to replace them staright away.

We have also ordered literature regarding our local area and local bus routes which we will be passing out to our future guests.

Regards

We booked this through late rooms and as a penance had to pay £8 extra a nt to park the car in a normal unsecured carpark!! Our room was on ground floor right by xmas tree that at 6am you thought the carpark was full of police not good if you suffer from epiletic fits!!!! due to lights.
rooms were ok at first inspection but wood floor in livin room sticky and kitchen i had wipe down. great location for Leith shopping.
