“Alba apartments - What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2008

Booked with Alba Executive Apartments for a weekend in their Coach House. Was a little concerned that there were no reviews to check, but the website looked good and it seemed good value as I booked on late rooms. There are several groups of apartments some set back from the main street and in varying sizes. They seem to be made up of some long term lets and some which are booked on a nightly basis. The coach house is a small 1 bedroomed house with a smart kitchen and good sized living room. It was marketed on laterooms as suitable for 2 adults and 1 child under 8, however when we arrived there was a large bedroom with a double bed and a foldaway single. Downstairs the living room also had a double sofa bed. It was a short drive from the centre of Edinburgh in a lovely residential area. Too far to walk perhaps but easily accessable with either a car or a short taxi ride. I was very impressed with the facililties in the coach house. The kitchen was a good quality with an oven, hob, washing machine and dishwasher. The beds were comfortable and both the bathroom and downstairs toilet were clean and smart. Overall it was well fitted out and good value. It was a nice alternative to staying in hotel, and as it is a detached building it's ideal if like me, you have a noisy child staying with you. A great find and I'll definitely stay there again.
