Nice but Quite Imperfect

I went for my first float here but had to be out to go somewhere else at the end of the session so I got there early. The lady said everything was ready so I got to go down early. She explained the whole process to me and then left me to my own devices. The shower was cold for... More

After the stress of an unsuccessful rugby trip in Murrayfield my first floatation experience was a welcome contrast. It cost 55 gbp for 90 mins and was worth it. Pleasant, knowledgeable staff, good facilities and a great first floating experience.

Well...where do I start....this was a christmas gift from my partner so I was really looking forward to relaxing in a floatation bath. I read the website and read what it entailed. I must say from now...do not believe the pictures you see. It is all photoshopped. Nothing like what you actually get. I arrived with 2 companions and we... More

This was my second visit but my first flotation at this establishment. The first visit didn't fill me with enthusiasm as I think they had just had a delivery and there were boxes all down the corridor to the treatment rooms. The staff were also a little aloof, but after my treatment the therapist was lovely and chatty and very... More

I was allocated the egg-shaped floatarium and was explained the inns and outs by the fast-talking manager. She left, I got in; the water was lovely warm and the surrounding air slightly cooler.

We managed to get a couples float from groupon and due to booking well in advance got a Saturday. We were given a warm welcome and water on arrival, explaining that the float chambers were very hot we were shown downstairs. Having been before I was delighted to see that the whole area had been updated and felt more spa... More

So I had read all of the reviews in anticipation of both my 4th and 5th hours in a tank (did a 2 hour float) and my girlfriends first ever float (plus she is claustrophobic!)... And honestly I was absolutely dreading it. Well. I am not quite sure what other reviews expectation has been... whether they are used to say... More

It was OK experience as everyone keeps talking about the floatarium. I wouldn't come back as I don't think it is worth the money because: it was super hot and you have to open the door to get some fresh air which is very disturbing to your experience; and it is tiny! I am 5 feet 6 inches and I... More

Booked by phone previous day and arrived 15 minutes early, to be unwarmly welcomed by frosty receptionist. She then had to 'check' that the particular tank I booked (the Pyramid, because the others make me claustrophobic) wasn't taken by anyone else. She then told me I couldn't have a float because they were all booked out. When I pointed out... More

Nice relaxing experience, although much time was wasted at the beginning when I had to wait (I estimate about as long as 6-7 minutes) for the hot water to come through for my pre-float shower. The premises are a bit - let's say - tired looking and not much different from when I attended for my last (my first) float... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
