We chose Ochil View as a place to stay while visiting Edinburgh (three adults/two teenagers). We wanted to visit the city, but not stay in the city. We overall rate with five circles because the stay delivered what was described and shown in the photos. We would agree with much of what other reviewers said. Leanne is a great communicator. Prior to our arrival, she replied to all my questions with excellent information. Upon arrival, we found a very generous “starter” package of refrigerator and food items. The house was clean. We intended to use the house as an alternative to a hotel; we were up-and-out in the morning and returned in the evening for sleeping. There is one shower, which we understood, and we were able to coordinate with each other on that; however, there is a second room with toilet/sink which facilitated getting ready in the morning. There is a washing machine, and clothes drying is done with a line. Leanne stopped by one evening to be sure we were OK and to see if we needed anything. We had a rental car and each day drove to the Ingliston Park & Ride and took the tram into Edinburgh – very easy to get to and use. The tram stops within walking distance of the castle and royal mile. OK, here’s the bottom line. . . Would we pick Ochil View again? Yes, without a doubt. It’s a house you can use while visiting Edinburgh, and Leanne is a nice host.
We have just stayed at Ochil View for 4 nights! A clean, comfortable, well equipped, child friendly property in a quiet and central location for tourists wanting to explore the lovely attractions like The Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel etc!
Leanne is very helpful and also left us a great welcome starter food pack Our 9 year old and 2 year old girls enjoyed the patio area out the back with little table and girls and some balls to play with!
It was my friends wedding in Linlithgow and I was best man, so stress free was high on my priorities, and Ochil View did not disappoint.
We had been on the road for what seemed an eternity, driving from Lincolnshire, we just wanted to get in and put the kettle on. Once we arrived just off the main road, parked on the driveway, we were very impressed, well kept garden, lovely outside veranda outback.
We entered and we were so impressed, even the kids said wow. There was a bowl of fruit, eggs, bread, milk everything to look after us, the place was decorated very nicely and the rooms were above average size. For the money this place beats any hotel by a long stretch!
I was a bit stressed with my best man responsibilities but Ochil View certainly took one of the stresses away, we will definitely visit again.
