“Comfortable flat with lovely sea view”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Great location right by the beach and with a terrific sea view at North Berwick - we stayed in Puffin's Lookout. The flat was very comfortable, warm and spacious and had all mod cons. We sat on the window seat with our binoculars watching the bird life and assorted dogs having fun on the beach. It was a short stroll to the Scottish Seabird Centre and the main shopping streets where there were cafes and interesting shops in abundance. A thriving seaside town which is great to see. Highly recommend this place. The owner was very friendly and recommend places to eat etc.

It wasn't clear to us that this was on the second floor and access was via stairs but we are reasonably fit and so it wasn't a problem.

My husband booked the flat which I thought was possibly a little pricey but it really did deliver so worth it.

“Brilliantly located, delightful apartment with fantastic sea views.”
Reviewed 4 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is a great property on the second floor of a tenement just across the road from the beach. The apartment itself is beautifully presented, with a lovely open plan kitchen-dining-living space perfect for our family get-together and easily able to accommodate 6-8 for sit down meal. The flat has wonderful views over the sea and it's just a case of crossing the quiet road to get to the beach. It's really close to other amenities including the lovely play park, shops, pub and seabird centre. The bedrooms were very comfortable and quiet, a twin, double (ensuite) and children's room with bunk beds. Plenty of room for a travel cot and for storage too. Lovely big bath and lots of hot water. Very well equipped in the kitchen, and with TV and music player. We really appreciated the buckets and spades for playing on the beach. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating, letting us stay on later than normal checkout. The only issue might be if you had a mobility problem as the flat is up two flights of stairs, but otherwise I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in North Berwick.

“Fabulous apartment and location - beautiful town and surrounding area”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Travelled with my husband and 2 teenage boys for a short half term stay somewhere we could relax, walk and have a little explore. NB was perfect for this and the apartment here at Puffins Lookout is really lovely. Its warm, stylish, comfortable with wifi and lots of space (essential these days!! damn!) and we made the most of the local takeaways and had a really lazy time here. North Berwick Law is a must as is Tantallon Castle and a walk across West Beach along the golf course. John has been the perfect host - he's been in touch from his own half term break to check that we were OK here and I would highly recommend his properties.

“This is a fantastic flat with great facilities in a fabulous beach side location.”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Puffin's Palace is a beautiful, fully refurbished flat in a fantastic location on the sea front at North Berwick. The facilities are excellent and the views over the beach are outstanding. Booking and finalizing the detailed arrangements was very straightforward and John could not have been more helpful and welcoming or our arrival for a family Christmas break. We had a great week in the flat; we enjoyed a wonderful walk on the beach on Christmas Day and our grandchildren enjoyed playing on the beach with the buckets and spades which were supplied with the flat. Parking was very easy and the local restaurants and shops are just a minute or two away on foot. I would thoroughly recommend this flat to anyone looking for accommodation in this beautiful East Lothian town.

“Perfect relaxing break with our 14 month old”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Like the other reviews, can’t praise this place highly enough. The views are outstanding and it made a real difference being on the sea front, was so relaxing to watch the waves. It was our mini moon break so it was really important to us to stay somewhere nice, and Puffin's Palace really delivered (with some thoughtful wedding gifts from the owners). Also a big deal for us was finding somewhere our 14 month could safely run around and this place was perfect, plus she absolutely loved watching the sea and people walking their dogs. Other important things to us were that the bedroom was dark (we slept in the en suite room and it was very dark) and that the apartment was very quiet (never heard a thing from anyone else in the building and the road outside is minor and only really used by the streets residents)
The apartment was lovely and warm, even though we stayed in a very cold period in December, there is no fire in the apartments but we didn’t need one and in many ways with little ones its less to worry about.
