    Fabulous

    Nice flat ceilings

    Surroundings not as nice as I hoped

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The facilities were good especially the shower, parking was easy good bus service into city centre supermarket and restaurants close by.

    The only compliant was upon arrival we dont have credit cards so they took a two hundred pound deposit, I think thias should of been clear at the point of booking

    Very good

    Frendly staff, plenty of Space to use my wheelchair. A wet room style shower would have made it perfect for a wheelchair bound user

    Exceptional

    Great location. Apartments very spacious, modern and well equiped with balcony overlooking sea. Regular local bus just outside to City Centre. 24 hr Asda nearby and top class seafood and italian restaurants.

    Fabulous

    I am a regular visitor to these apartments due to the comfort, modernity, cleanliness and privacy that they offer.

    A minor niggle but on the occasion of my last two visits the reception desk has phoned me to enquire what time I will be checking in - this is unnecessary and a little annoying, really, as I always arrive within the stated office hours.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The apartments were very modern and shower was fab. All utensils and appliances you would expect to find. View was lovely on the left hand side, right hand side was a really ugly port.

    Beds were two singles pushed together. Apartments are only "serviced" if your stay is longer than 7 nights Very far from everywhere!

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Smart, modern, stylish, spacious. Great sea and harbour views, lots of light. All necessary facilities. Good security. Well heated. Very clean. No unpleasant noise.

    Not so easy to find. It will be good when the building site has been cleaned up, but we realise this is inevitable at this stage of development.

    Fabulous

    Excellent facilities, fantastic views of the Forth Bridges and the Castle. Apartment had every thing we needed, beds were comfortable and clean.

    Parking was a bit haphazard as they had run out of key fobs for the secure underground carpark.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    spectacular views over the Firth of Forth. Smart well furnished apartment and secure parking. Well served by local buses (number 10 nearly to the door) from city centre. 24-hour superstore very nearby. Excellent fridge and freezer space and good pan/utensil selection for catering

    Office could be difficult to find - there are no signs and as it is right on the waterfront it cannot be seen from the main road (and is not yet on most SatNavs). No cafetiere and the milk in welcome pack was longlife cartons - character of flat suggested something more classy! I wouldn't recomend the location in the dead of winter - very stormy when I arrived (unseasonal April snow) and being right on the Firth meant it was actually difficult to stand up!

    Apartment was not cleaned properly and poorly equipped. It was in a bad position overlooking wasteland with rubbish tipped everywhere. Was such a shame because it could so easily have been made really nice with a bit of work. Very disappointed especially as we paid so much.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Good location, with easy access into city centre by public transport (bus). Very well-equipped apartment

    Not easy to find reception - map with booking details would have helped. Note adjacent sites likely to be developed, which is likely to cause disruption in the future

    Superb

    On arrival, my wife and I were impressed by the gentleman on reception. He was very friendly, courteous and his explanation about how to get our car into the basement car park and how to get into our room was just great and fantastic. Secondly, our room 10 {with lounge, dining, kitchen, a bathroom, a shower room, two bedrooms (double and twin)} provided all the comfort that we needed. Indeed. A great and wonderful hotel.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Quality of Accomodation is excellent.

    Its a wee bit out of the centre of Town, but easily reached by taxi.

    Key/Locking mechanism on front door was a problem
