“Still Brilliant, As Before”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is my second time staying at this flat. So good the first time, last year, had to return again this year and was lucky to get the dates I wanted.
It's a perfect place to stay, has absolutely everything you could possibly need and Diana puts milk in the fridge and yummy biscuits for your first cuppa when you arrive. Nothing is too much trouble for her, perfect landlady :-). So much on the doorstep and a short bus ride to town. We tend to eat in the local area where there's everyday cafes and restaurants with award winning chefs. Best of both worlds.
I daresay I shall be back again next year.
Highly recommend this place.

“Well appointed apartment”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed at the Moorings in May with two friends, the apartment was in a good location and very well appointed and spacious. The down side was that it was very noisy all through the night as Commercial Road was very busy with traffic, if the apartment had been overlooking the cobbled road at the entrance to the apartments may have been less noisy.

Rita, thanks for your review. This is the only complaint I have had in 12 years about noise, so sorry to hear you found it troublesome and hope the fact that everything else was so nice made up for that. I suppose thats just cities for you! Hope to see you all again tho. Di

“Could not ask for better”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I booked this property as my brother and I were running the Edinburgh marathon, as support we took our wives, children and parents with us and every one of us had a fabulous time, made even better by the quality of the accommodation.

This property is clean, tidy, incredibly well appointed and a very well presented. The owner met us and ran through all the features, even supplying a welcome pack with Tea, coffee and biscuits as well as having toys and dvds for the children.

The location is superb for bars, restaurants and all the usual tourist bits. The owner helped make the whole process a simple pleasure.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough and I will definately be booking again.

“Ideal spot for a short break”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Plenty of room for six of us in this comfortable, stylish and well appointed apartment, ideally situated for all that's good in Leith (lots!) and handy for transport links to Edinburgh or a brisk walk along the Water of Leith path to the city and Stockbridge - just a couple of miles of easy walking. .Be sure to try Nobles bar on Constitution street for lovely ambience, friendly service and terrific pub food at sensible prices, and the redoubtable Mimi's for memorable breakfasts (French toast was the star of the show, but all great). Shopping, cinema, plenty of bars and restaurants near enough to be handy, but not so close that you're bothered by them. A fab weekend and the flowers and biscuits were a nice touch from friendly and helpful owner Diana. Highly recommended.

“Perfect base to explore Edinburgh”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I recently stayed at 5 The Moorings, Leith with my husband, 2 children (5 years and 11 months) and our friends who also have 3 children to celebrate hogmanay 2013. We all agreed that the apartment is well equipt for families, it is very clean and comfortable and is a really nice place to stay. Everything we needed was available in the apartment (highchair, cot, spare towels etc). We were met by the owner on our arrival who kindly showed us around the apartment which I felt was a nice touch, Diane also left us a really nice welcome pack (wine, biscuits, chocolates and chocolate lollies for the children which I thought was a great way to welcome guests.
The apartment an ideal base to explore Edinburgh and the location is perfect especially if you want to escape the busy centre of Edinburgh. Leith has some lovely bars and restaurants and the apartment is perfectly located close to Ocean Terminal shopping centre and theres an Asda close by which came in very handy when we needed extra food supplies! There is a bus stop right next to the apartment so we happily jumped on the bus into the centre on a few occasions, the buses are regular and its only a short ride into the centre.
I would highly recommend this apartment, I really cant fault it, its in a perfect location, its very homely and comfy and a great place to relax after lots of sightseeing and trekking around Edinburgh.
