East Lothian, on the east coast of Scotland, is famous for its stunning rolling countryside, miles of magnificent coastline, golden sandy beaches, not to mention award winning attractions and golf courses. East Lothian attractions include the award winning Scottish Sea Bird Centre in North Berwick, the National Museum of Flight, Dirleton Castle, Tantallon Castle and Muirfield Golf Course (which hosted the open championship in July 2013).

Many suggest that this part of Scotland has a unique micro climate with more sunshine hours per year; certainly weather data does seem to back that up! The area is very popular with golfers, cyclists, ramblers, photographers and countless more who enjoy beautiful surroundings with charming villages, historic houses and castles.

Golfers may like to know that Muirfield is only 4.5 miles from The Imperial Apartment, as are the splendid new courses at the Archerfield Estate. There are a further 15 golf courses within a 20 minute drive of the Apartment. Whilst our Apartment is situated on the 2nd floor of the former Imperial Hotel, we offer a large ground floor, heated room to store golf caddies and to dry golf or walking clothing.

For non-golfers, the vibrant and bustling High Street of North Berwick, with its abundance of quality and unique shops, art galleries and restaurants, is only 2 steps from the apartment's front door.

"Best Apartment Rental in North Berwick!"

My husband and I just returned from 2 fabulous months in North Berwick, Scotland and the Imperial Apartment was a large part of our trip. Mike and Tracey Pacetti have thought of everything in furnishing the apartment. Tracey was so helpful in our planning, answering all of our questions and if she didn't know the answer she would research it and get back to us! The apartment is very comfortable, roomy and tastefully decorated. Plush robes, quality linens, every kitchen utensil you could think of as well as a large, well stocked "Welcome Basket" to get us started. The Imperial is located at one end of High Street, 2 blocks from the Harbor, across the street from The Lodge Grounds. A perfect location. We relied on public transportation and it was an easy walk down High Street to the train station or a few blocks to catch the local buses. Tracey has two large binders of local attractions along with menus from the area restaurants to help with your stay. I could go on and on and highly recommend the Imperial Apartment, even the neighbors were fun and helpful!

Hi guys,

Thank you for your wonderful review of your stay. It was truly a delight to have you stay at The Imperial. I hope you have taken many wonderful memories of your special trip back home with you.

Thank you too for the wonderful cookery book you presented me containing fabulously tasty recipes from home. Mike and I have enjoyed experimenting with a few of these and have shared with our friends too.

My neighbour always asks after you too.

Keep well and you know our door is always open if you would like to return to North Berwick.

Kind regards,

"Home Away from Home - Family Friendly Environment!!!!"

Overall Excellent!!!!

The Imperial Apartment was one of the key highlights of our vacation in the UK, especially to our daughter celebrating her 12th Birthday. The Apartment have great facilities in immaculate conditions (attention to details) in an family friendly environment.

Home Away from Home. Highly recommended for family,

Thank you Tracey.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for your kind review.
It was lovely to be able to help provide items to help your daughter celebrate her birthday at The Imperial.

I'm delighted that you had a lovely stay and list it as one of the key places that you have stayed in the UK - high praise indeed.

We take pleasure in trying to ensure that our lovely guests have a wonderful stay and compliments like these help us to know that we are doing things right.

Best wishes, Tracey

"A superb luxury apartment."

The Imperial apartment is situated just 5 minutes' walk from the beach and the Lodge with beautiful gardens. The shops are right opposite on the High Street. There is a free car park to the side and rear of the apartment although this gets very crowded we managed to park there every day.

The apartment is really well equipped and comfortable. It is superbly presented and equipped with everything you could possibly need right down to a selection of DVD's Books and Games. It is meticulously clean.

Lovely comfortable bedrooms with a selection of pillows and duvets.

The lounge has welcoming furnishings with plenty of comfortable seats.

The kitchen has everything you could possibly need including coffee maker, microwave and dishwasher along with a fridge/freezer; everything was beautifully clean and worked perfectly.

There is free internet access and free use of the telephone so we were able to keep in touch with the family.

We would unreservedly recommend The Imperial Apartment to anyone. You could not wish for better.

Hi there,

My sincere thanks for your lovely review of your luxury stay. I'm delighted that you had a wonderful stay and great to know that you found the free WiFi and free phone handy. It's good to stay in touch!

I'm glad you found our location well placed for the local attractions. There are a few lovely walks in the Lodge and I'm glad you enjoyed exploring some of these. We took a long time to find a property well placed for the attractions, harbour, beach and restaurants and it's great to hear you agree!

We would be delighted to warmly welcome you again to The Imperial if you return to East Lothian.

With kind regards,

"Wonderful apartment, superb location"

We had a great week in North Berwick, staying in this luxurious aprtment. Every kitchen utensil and piece of equipment that we needed, comfortable beds, great big TV to watch the Commonwealth Games (when we weren't there in person ;-)). Centrally located, we walked everywhere, including up the Law, to the station, to the beach and harbour etc. Really enjoyed local restaurant Osteria, Rocketeer restaurant and the new ice cream parlour on the corner opposite.
A great week, only possible due to the most fantastic apartment!

Sincere thanks for your lovely review of your luxury break at The Imperial. I'm so delighted that you had a wonderful time with us and enjoyed hearing about some of the fantastic places you had visited. On the basis of your recommendation we also have tried the ice cream parlour and are pleased to give it the thumbs up too!

Thanks again for booking The Imperial; we hope to welcome you in the future should you return to East Lothian.

Kind regards,
Tracey Pacitti (owner)

"Lovely Apartment with lots of thoughtful extras"

This is a lovely apartment and has comfortably accommodated our family of four for two holidays now. Everything is spotlessly clean, the bedding is good quality, and Tracey provides lots of thoughtful extras such as a big welcome hamper, nice toiletries and things like a step stool/potty/high chair for young children. There are even toys, games, a picnic bag and rug, buckets and spades - really everything you need for a holiday on the coast. There is lots of soap powder/dishwasher tablets/bin liners etc to make keeping the place clean without having to go and buy this stuff (which we've often had to do in other places). I would highly recommend the Imperial, especially for couples with up to two children.

Hello (again),

Thank your very much for leaving a review following your second family break at The Imperial. We were delighted that you enjoyed yourself so much last year that you re-visited us again this year.

Thank you for reviewing the property in such a way that illustrates how we cater for our younger guests; we have a young daughter ourself and we are keen to ease the extra challenges that travelling with young children can bring.

If you find yourself considering rebooking for next year (2016) we would be delighted to welcome you with open arms (but please book a little earlier to get the dates, and length of stay, that you would like).

With very best wishes,
Tracey Pacitti

"Great location; attention to detail"

My wife and I, and our four year old daughter, recently stayed at The Imperial. It is a great North Berwick location -- close to shops, beach, bars, sights, etc. The apartment is very clean and the owner has paid close attention to many details such as very nice soaps, towels, beds, etc. It also is extremely kid-friendly, with books and toys and games for use. Also, the bedrooms are not facing the street. So although it is centrally located, it doesn't sound like it -- even on Friday or Saturday night. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. I do appreciate it. A good point about the sleeping areas being at the back of The Imperial. I had never thought of pointing that out before! I'm delighted you had a great break in The Imperial and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future if you decide to visit East Lothian again.

Thanks and best wishes,
Tracey Pacitti (owner)

This beautiful apartment stands is luxurious and of a high quality. Tracey has thought of everything you will need...and provided it, including all those small things such as kitchen rolls etc. Unlike other rentals, crockery and kitchen goods are of a high quality, as are the furnishings and linen. Location is fantastic....walkable to everywhere. The small touches such as spa products and flowers were appreciated....highly recommended! We will be back.

Thank you so much for your comments. We try to think of everything that our guests might enjoy and so it's lovely to hear that it's appreciated and makes a guest's stay more enjoyable. We're so pleased to hear that you will return; we look forward to warmly welcoming you again in the future.

With very best wishes,
Tracey and Mike Pacitti (owners)
