This summer my husband and I along with another couple spent a week in Ocean Apartments. It was a beautiful experience.

Good location, number 10 bus takes you right into the heart of the city and runs regularly. the apartment was very spacious and comfortable.

We had a great time at Ocean Apartments. Due to some inexplicable reason, we thought it would be fun to catch the Edinburgh Caledonian Sleeper train to Edinburgh. We ended up in Edinburgh way before check in time, but luckily Ocean Apartments stored our luggage for us until check in. Coming from a country without the presence of Walmart, we...

Our three bedroomed apartment was spacious and clean although the bedrooms were quite small.
