My two friends travelled up from the Midlands and we hired an apartment at Oakhill for a couple of nights.
We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and there was a lovely guy on reception to check us in and show us around the apartment. Unlike other properties we've stayed in, the apartments were exactly like they are on the website - the pictures don't lie! They are beautifully fitted out and have absolutely everything you could need, from tea, coffee and milk to heaps of fluffy, white towels and great wine glasses!
It was nice weather, so we had the balcony door open most of the time. There was a clear view over the river to Fife (apartment 15), which my friends enjoyed as they don't have much water views around Birmingham!
The apartments were so comfy, we actually stayed in one of the evenings and would definitely return here again. We used the buses all the time and a day rider was a good investment at £3.50.
Really lovely accommodation and excellent value for money. (Best deal was found on Oakhill's own website)

Room Tip: Room 15 was on the top floor (there is a lift) and had good views.

We actually stayed here in May 2010 (taken me a while to get around to writing a review!)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was lovely and the quality of the decor and furnishings outstanding. The welcome basket of food was great and the staff were lovely. We would stay here again.

A nice appartment, very clean, 10 mins walk from the centre of the city. They provide bread, butter and milk for breakfast in the morning. I really enjoyed the stay there and am going there again in July 2012.

Room Tip: It is not that expensive as you may think. They have a 3 nights for 2 for returning guests.

Me and the other half just spend two nights in this beautiful apartments, we were on the top floor and excellent views over Edinburgh. I would strongly recommend these apartments to anyone who wants a fantastic weekend away with no noisy people next door like in hotels. The apartments are very well furnished, even have frying pans, microwaves etc. We had a romantic package, this include a bottle of wine/cham, a rose, rose petals on the bed etc, and a box of chocolates. Our room had a on-suite room and a double room n shower room. A nice flat screen tv and sky. An excellent apartment to stay in with great parking and not far away from the city centre. Very happy with our stay!!

The apartment looked exactly as it had on the photos - just what we were after! Great kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms and a superb view over the city and River. Very helpful staff and a good location, I'll definitely be back again.

Room Tip: Top floor has lovely views

I had a brilliant stay at the Oakhill apartments. I had booked this a suprise for my boyfriend for his birthday, and he also had a cookery lesson at the Newton Edinburgh Cookery school. We were given a warm reception by a very friendly young man, who was very knowledgable and made us feel at ease when showing us around the apartments.

We were given a complementary upgrade and were obviously very pleased! The apartments were spotlessly clean, including the reception area, and the decor inside the rooms was also very nice and it is quite obvious that a lot of thought has gone into each and every room. All of the facilities in the flat was obviously new, and again very clean.

The fridge was stocked with fresh milk and butter which I thought was a nice touch. Overall we were very impressed, and that impressed that we booked an additional night. Again he was very accomodating and allowed us to stay in the same apartment for that additional night. It felt like a luxiourous home away from home.

I would recommend these apartments and if I ever return to Edinburgh I will be staying at Oakhill.
