We had a very enjoyable stay over the Easter weekend.The apartment was well appointed and very comfortable and served as a very useful base for our various excursions(on foot) to different parts of the city.The cycle/footpath is a matter of 100 metres from the front door. Had we chosen to use the bus service
,the bus stop is nearby.There are plenty pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment and a handy supermarket across the bridge.Easy parking available to the rear of the property.All in all an excellent base for a city holiday and a well equipped and comfortable apartment if you decide to stay in.

This is an excellent one bedroom flat in central Leith converted from an historic former warehouse. Whilst not enjoying a view of the Leith waterfront, instead facing flats to the rear of the property this third floor flat benefits from being very quiet and peaceful. It is also very comfortable - comfy bed & pillows and the main sitting room/kitchen is very well designed. It is easily accessible too with a private car park, no steps and lift access although the toilet door is a little narrow for wheelchairs. I'd happily return.
well equipped - good location

We had a fantastic week in Edinburgh at the Cooperage. We loved the flat. It has good facilities and is nicely decorated. It really was a lovely space to spend a few days. It's in a great location in the centre of Leith. Walking distance to the Royal Yacht, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A few hundred yards from the Michelin starred 'The Kitchin', which serves an excellent value lunch menu. Whilst in Edinburgh, we would recommend a trip to the Zoo to see the Pandas and Mary King's Close. Illegal Jack's is worth hunting out for a Burrito. Edinburgh is an amazing city and the Cooperage is the perfect place from which to explore it.
