LUXURY EDINBURGH ACCOMMODATION, DESIGNATED UNDERGROUND PARKING, WIFI.

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Newhaven - Platinum Point - Edinburgh

Sleeps 2/4, well appointed & equipped, located at waters edge, parking included

Spacious 1 bedroom, stunning and bright apartment in Leith; the historic port town in Edinburgh. The apartment is a perfect hotel alternative, includes parking, and just a short 15 minute distance by bus to Edinburgh City centre, where you can take in many famous attractions - the Castle, Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, National Gallery of Scotland, Scottish Modern Art Galleries, Royal Botanical Gardens, Scott Monument, Princes Street Gardens, and the Old and New Towns - to name just a few. It is within a short walking distance from the cobbled streets at the Shore, which boasts a lively stretch of stylish bars, pubs, cafes and fashionable restaurants. Ocean Terminal, at the nearby 'Docks,' is an impressive new complex of shops, restaurants and cinemas, and home to The Royal Yacht Britannia. Leith retains many of its original historical buildings and cobbled back streets and lanes that allows the town to keep its original charm and character, making it a wonderful place to live and visit!

JUST GREAT!

  • 5 out of 5
We can only agree with all the other guests. They are right with everything! And it is even better. :-)
We loved every minute of our stay there. If we will be back in Edinburgh some day we will definitely plan the vacation according to the booking calendar of his flat.

All the best to Sharon and John. Thank you so much!

EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMMODATIONS!

  • 5 out of 5
Beautifully maintained apartment with all the amenities you could want. John and Sharon ensured we had what we needed to have an amazing experience while in Scotland. The #10 city bus picked us up just outside the front door and we were able to easily get around the city. There are several great eating places within walking distance of the apartment, as well as, the ASDA store if you need to purchase any personal items. The apartment offered a secure quiet place to relax after fun filled days of sightseeing around this beautiful country! Truly wonderful place to stay!!

TOTALLY RELAXING STAY

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is the perfect base to explore Edinburgh. Just as described it is finished to the highgest standard and so comfortable the temptation is to stay indoors. A friendly greeting set up our stay and settled us in. As the other reviews say the position is perfect, a few minutes walk away from a good choice of restaurants, a supermarket and shoppong centre. The bus service was close by and regular and took the strain out of getting into the city. When we come back to Edinburgh this will be our first choice, you won't do better

TOP QUALITY APARTMENT IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
This is an excellent apartment in a great location. The apartment is beautifully appointed and has everything you could possibly need. There is also an underground parking space with direct access the apartment. There is an excellent bus service to Edinburgh right across the road with an ASDA store and the Ocean Terminal a couple of minutes away. This makes shopping and access to the city very convenient. John, the owner is really helpful and was a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

A REAL HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is just as it is described. John was there to meet us, to show us about the place and and we felt very welcomed. The apartment is well situated, and a walking distance from a shopping centre (Ocean Terminal and the Royal Yacht Britannia), an Asda, bus stops and also Newhaven harbour with nice restaurants. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen fully equipped. We enjoyed watching the sun set from the other side of Platinum Point (the waterfront).
Correspondence and 'admistration' with John was very straightforward and efficient.
We've already recommended this apartment to some friends!

LOVELY APARTMENT, GOOD LOCATION.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights recently. We have stayed in many apartments in Edinburgh and this is one of the best. A 10 minute walk to Asda, 15/20 minute walk to Ocean Terminal and 1 minute from the bus stop! The bus takes you right into the city centre in 20 minutes. The apartment was very clean, warm and modern. Free wifi and underground parking an added bonus. We cooked a few meals in the apartment and found it was very well equipped with everything you would have in your own kitchen.

Great stay and would definitely go back.
