Customer Reviews of The Georgian Retreat, Portobello, Edinburgh - Sleeps 4

"A lovely cottage nicely located near the beach. Close to Edinburgh city centre, which made it an ideal base to explore the city and the countryside. We'll definitely return, thank you." Mr T. Vilshoever

"Location, Location, Location" This property is near the shops, a pub, the sea and a regular bus service to Edinburgh. It is comfortable, well equipped and maintained." Mrs C. Greenway

"Good location for a short stay. Great location with easy bus access into Edinburgh. Able to park near flat. Owners vey approachable and helpful. Beautiful, well equipped kitchen. The flat is full of character but we felt it was rather too cluttered with the owners' possessions and this left little room for us to store our own belongings. There are lots of fiddly ornaments around that would not make this flat suitable for younger children." Mr J. Cunliffe
