The facilities: good space, excellent kitchen and bathroom and comfortable bathrooms and livingroom. It is a place one could stay for any lenght of time in comfort.
The manager was very accomodating and helpful. The parking was great and the location is only 5 minutes drive from the city centre so great if taking a car.
The photos do not reflect the rooms (certainly did not resemble our room one bit) It is tired and run down now but is fine for a place to lay your head.
As we were only there for one evening there was fresh milk, bread, butter, jam, cereal, tea, coffee and sugar all pre-packed and waiting for us so we did not have to go in search of a mini mart or anything.
Good facility , good location not too far from the center point and could use the bus to downtown. I will use it again if I go to Edinburgh.
Super convenient, benefit from free WiFi and kitchen. I will go back.
Floor is a litle bit dirty.
The description of the apartment in the webpage matched with the experience. The whole expereience was pleasant.
Large and very good looking appartments, no breakfast but you get milk, butter, jams etc...
The shower didn't work at all.
Great apartment, nice and warm. Nice to have the little breakfast kit (slices of bread, marmelade, tea and beans) there on arrival. Great value for money - booked last minute and paid 55 per night :)
Not really a "don't like" but never actually saw any staff! exept on day of departure when they knocked on the door around 9 (even before check out time). Was generally clean but sofa had little rocks in it - could have done with a hoover.
As we had a dog with us, we found the apartments wonderful, as we could leave her there for a while when we went shopping etc. The apartments were within 2 miles of the centre, which was good, when we finally found our way into and out of the centre !!
home from home - ability to have the benefits of self catering. After a 4 week holiday the luxury of being able to do my laundry was appreciated. A facility in the bathroom to accommodate drying was about the only item missing from the apartment. The bus trip to the City takes abt 10 minutes - 5 in a taxi.
it was close to city centre about a 15 min walk and was easy to get to by car.
apartments were not clean,bathroom was flooded and no one came to fix it , even though i asked at reception several times. couches were dirty and floors and carpets were filthy aswell. iv got 2 dogs and my house is in better condition. really disapointed with aparments.
The apartment was quite spacious on the whole and it was better value than a hotel room, as the kitchen facilities allowed us to prepare our own meals rather than having to eat out.
It was quite noticeable that none of the floors had been hoovered recently. Also, there were no towel rails in the bathroom. Although the apartment was designed to accommodate 4 people, there was barely room to seat this number at the dining table.
The apartment was very nice, clean, modern and comfortable. It was fully equipped with almost everything and a bus stop to the centre was right in front of the complex, Good shopping places nearby as well. I would recommend it to everyone.
Although the apartment was fully equipped there was something missing: hair dryer and washing powder that we had to buy on our own. In the kitchen there was a strong smell of curry coming from some furniture. The shower drain of one of the two bathrooms was completely clogged that I couldn't have a shower there. We often heard some annoying noises of steps from the apartment above.
Apartment was well furnished and comfortable
The cleaning was'nt up to standard, the staff were smoking on the office premises and there was rat poison in the boiler cupboard, kitchen cupboard and scattered underneath the television! Luckily we spotted it and cleared it away as we had our child with us!
Stayed at Lochend Apartments for 3 nights, location is great minutes from leiths ocean terminal which is great for dinner and also a short bus ride/taxi to princes street. Check in was quick and was given information regarding travelling to and from from the city centre which was great, my apartment was great, clean and had everything that I needed and more, the breakfast starter pack was great and the free wifi was also great!! Right across the road from the apartments is a lovely park with pond which houses swans, geese, ducks etc a brilliant place to visit, also close to both sainsburys supermarket and tescos, right across the road from tescos is also a great pub tostop for food,where children are also welcome. Next door is a very friendly pub, I think was call the loch or something?? Anyhow karaoke on the Friday and we also went for the bbq on the sunday!! We also visited the beach, which you can jump on the 49 bus right outside the apartments and it takes you straight their, Will definatley return to Lochend Apartments!! Great find and great price :)
