The service I received was very good and when I had the need to contact them, they were really helpful. I would have given 5 stars, however the emails that I received were a bit confusing, especially one that said my booking request has been closed, took me a while to work out what that actually meant. Also, the email with the access codes for the apartment was received around 8pm the night before we were due to travel, it would have been better if this was provided much earlier in the day. Also the information on what to do with the key cards upon leaving was confusing as there was three different instructions. sorry if we followed the wrong one!
That being said the Reserve Apartments app was very useful.


The apartment is all that we hoped it would be, the views both towards the city centre and over the Firth of Forth with the balcony were stunning. The apartment itself had every thing that we wanted and we would look to book again as the area was quiet, there were frequent buses to the city centre (exact change only) plus an Asda in walking distance.

Booking was smooth and i would use them again.


The apartment was comfortable, spacious with beautiful views. two comments: no coffee machine, cafetier. Dishwasher filter was dirty.
Susan, our manager, was excellent and we appreciated the flexibility of arrival and departure times.

Our response

Thank you for leaving feedback! We're so pleased that you loved the apartment and it's fantastic views. Sorry to hear hat you came across a couple of small issues, we've passed this on to the property manager so that they can look in to adding some extra facilites and ensure that the dishwasher filter is checked.
