Good location, excellent bus service to Edin, clean apartment, nice staff, good parking. Not good for young family though. Despite it claiming to be. The family room we had was over two levels. The noise of the floorboards and stairs are so noisy you can't walk on them without waking up the wee one downstairs. The lift shaft is really... More

Stayed here for a night, it was ideal for what we needed. Very spacious with two good bedrooms. Amazing view across to The Royal Yacht, Brittania, especially at night with reflections on the water. Fully equipped kitchen a new supermarket at the end of the road. Buses nearby to get straight into Edinburgh city centre. Reasonably priced.

We stayed here for three nights and were delighted to have been upgraded to a two storey apartment on the sixth/seventh floors with views of the Royal Yacht and Edinburgh Castle. The apartment itself was very clean and cosy and very well appointed although the carpet in the lounge/dining area were badly stained and could do with replacing/cleaning. The receptionist... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 weeks, at the beginning of October, we have recently relocated to Edinburgh due to work, and for 3 weeks, we had to find somewhere to live until the new house was ready to move into. We have a working Guide Dog, and Ocean Apartment's website states they do not allow dogs, so... More

The first thing you see when you walk into the apartment is the view. We had a view of the firth and across the lagoon from the royal yacht Brittania. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and comfortable whether you are staying for a day or a week as we did. Plus I can't say enough about the staff

Absolutely loved our stay here. Just perfect for families. We got upgraded to an executive suite for a small price which was well worth it. Our apartment included 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms which included a bath em suite for the kids and an amazing shower en suite for us. The kitchen had everything we needed fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine,... More

This was our second visit to Ocean Apartments. We booked the penthouse for the views and they didn't disappoint. Floor to ceiling glass frames the city views excellently. The appartments was just what we needed 15 min taxi into Edinburgh and only about £10. The apartment was well equipped and clean and tidy. Everything you would expect. There are some... More

Visited for a few nights in May for my birthday with my boyfriend. Large apartment and very cosy. Had to pay a deposit at reception but we already knew about this so didn't bother us.
