Torquil is an exceptional and attentive owner, the accommodation was impeccably clean and well appointed, and the location is optimal for North Berwick attractions. Would highly recommend! Can't wait to return. Deserves 5 stars in every category!
We came from Perth Australia to North Bewick for a week in June 2018 to attend a wedding and a family reunion the following weekend. We stayed in Royal Apartments, apt #27, the same one we rented in 2017, when we visited for the first time. This 2 bedroom apt is just beautiful, filled with light, plus a long corner-window view from the lounge room overlooking Bass Rock. There were enough chairs, sofas, etc in the tastefully appointed sitting/dining area to seat our many rellies when we invited them round for a morning tea one Sunday. The kitchen contains all the usual utensils & amenities, including a Nespresso coffee machine. We appreciated having a dedicated parking bay in the carpark behind the building. There is a lift in the building and a convenient back door so you don't have to walk round to the front after dark, or carry your groceries up the hill. We cooked & ate most of our meals there, as there's a Tesco nearby. The Royal App is directly opposite the railway station to Edinburgh. When our son joined us from Brisbane, Scottish Rail brought him directly from the Airport Tram in the city. We frequently used the train, so quick to run up to the city dept stores for that last-minute wedding outfit as well as doing a little sight-seeing. I have mobility issues and use a walker, and Torquil had no problem whatsoever with me hiring a special recliner chair from the Disability Services, in time for our arrival. In short, this rental is tops, and I took many photos and painted watercolours of the incredible view.
This is a gorgeous, modern and very spacious apartment complimented by the beautiful views over the town and the sea. It is a short walk to the shops, and railway station. Our stay was perfect, and so was the weather.
We took our annual trip to North Berwick in late March. Golf was the main draw and the town has all you need to complete your break.
What also added to our enjoyment was the excellent accommodation at the Royal Apartments. The two bedroom apartment was very comfortable and allowed us the mix of cooking for ourselves or eating out. Its handy proximity to all the places we needed to access added a little extra to our trip.
An excellent place to stay. 10 on 10 as they say where I come from.
Stayed here for a short period and would definitely return! The apartment was nice and clean with a well equipped kitchen, which allowed us to cook at home during our stay. The apartment is a great location for walking down the lovely High Street of North Berwick, or even getting the train up to Edinburgh.
Directions on how to get to the apartment were easy to follow, and Torquil (the owner) even let us check in 2 hours early!
Can't wait to come back!
