Great service from reserve, We booked only 3 days before our visit but process was completely smooth. Communication in regards to meet and greet was great. Tony was also great when we had a concern after we left. Have another apartment booked in a couple of months time to visit with family so hoping we have an equally great experience.


The apartment was fantastic. It’s in a great quiet location but within walking distance to great restaurants and bars in Leith and also minutes to the transport links. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, it’s homely, clean and well maintained, the owners clearly have pride in their residence and look to make guests feel comfortable and at home. i look forward to visiting again soon.

We enjoyed our time in the apartment. The house was very cosy and everything you needed.It was a great location for everywhere we needed. Lots of great places to eat nearby and we even had a Chinese Meal delivered to the apartment and it was yummy.Beds were comfortable and toiletries were supplied. We will definately go back.


It was a bit expensive but maybe because it is The Fringe in Edinburgh. They also took a £200 breakage charge so don't worry you do get it back but ours took 8 days to get back into our account.

Our response

Service rating : Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Ocean Drive Residence in Edinburgh. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Product : I'm sorry that the refund of the deposit took long as sometimes the banks can take up to 3-5 working days to process the payment after we issue the refund.

The apartment was 1st class and contained all we required for our break. Beautiful Leith Docks location with regular bus service to central Edinburgh less than 5 minutes away. Secure parking on site and local restaurants and pubs within short walking distance. Fully recommended.


Excellent VFM with efficient booking process.
