Description

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!

A Wonderful Find in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this flat because we had to attend a family gathering at the recreation complex next door. We were met by John at the flat and he took us through all the details to ensure our stay was as relaxing as possible. The welcome basket was a nice surprise (he has excellent taste in chocolate). Everything was top quality and well maintained - the towels were luxurious. The flat was immaculately clean, a must when staying abroad. John gave us tips about the things to see (The Royal Yacht Britannia was fascinating), pointed out the Asda within walking distance and recommended places to eat. The No. 10 bus is right outside the door and takes you into the heart of Edinburgh. We stayed out quite late one evening and had no problem catching the bus home. We also found it close to a network of bicycle/walking paths, which we took to the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens. The building itself is very secure and quiet, ensuring a good night's sleep. We would highly recommended this property.

Superb Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment whilst on business in Edinburgh - it proved an excellent choice. The apartment is extremely comfortable, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and provides speedy internet access. It is ideally placed in a quiet waterfront setting within walking distance to waterfront restaurants and the Ocean Terminal shopping and leisure complex but also served by regular buses into the city centre. John and Sharon were most helpful, understanding and approachable in organising the stay. I would recommend this apartment whether in Edinburgh for holiday and leisure purposes or a short business trip - I certainly plan to return.

Just great!

  • 5 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 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 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 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.
