Customer Reviews of Bath St Apartment, Portobello, Edinburgh - sleeps 4
"not our nature to complain"
52 stairs up to the flat, no elevator , we had heavy bags. There is no second egress from the flat and no smoke alarm , we are used to those things , especially on the top floor. The idea of bringing our own sheets and towels was unusual , we take flats all the time and never did that before . Portobello is a unique community ,buzzing with local color and a genuine neighborhood feeling you don't find much anymore. Those who live there are lucky .
"Perfect location at Edinburgh's beach area"
Really nice, comfortable apartment 2 mins walk from the sea front and five mins from a variety of grocery shops inc. a co-op, restaurants and buses into Edinburgh center. The sandy beach was very clean and perfect for smaller children - even saw a seal close to. Small parks and greens nearby as well as a very nice, good value swimming pool. Top floor flat meant it was quieter (except when the nearby pub closed) with views across the roof tops and the communal garden was quiet, shady and pretty. Niggle - the fourth (truckle) bed was not as comfy and did not have a headboard so the pillows kept falling away. Suggestions - Have info in the details about all the facilities ie radio, where to get the electric key card topped up, recycling days or where to put recycling. Oh and the flat needs a tea strainer.
