- Very Good
A lovely flat overlooking one of the fishing quays and close to everything Eyemouth has to offer. Yes there’s a bit of noise from the harbour and seagulls but that’s part of Eyemouth! Really enjoyed it.
Owner's reply: Thanks reviewers! Yes there is some noise with the seagulls and the boats- like yourselves its never been an issue with us and is far preferable to traffic noise! The lobsters, crabs, oysters and prawns go straight from the boats to Collins 2 minutes walk for the flat. To be honest I would put up with any amount of noise to be able to buy lobsters for £6 and oysters for 50p!! The dressed crab and prawns are also very cheap.
“The perfect family holiday”
We would definitely recommend this lovely harbour apartment as we have stayed several occasions. On arrival the apartment is spotless. The rooms are spacious and have fantastic harbour views. It is a home from home and is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Your private parking space is right at the front door on the harbour. You can literally sit and watch the boats coming in and out the harbour. We have such a relaxing holiday when we stay here. Fiona runs a dog friendly apartment and my wee dog just loves it there. You are only yards away from a lovely, clean beach. We love the morning harbour walks and the bantry wall at the beach means she can be off her lead in a safe environment. There are a few good pubs about 100 yards to your left and in particular the Contented Sole which allows dogs in the bar. There are some lovely little cafes and shops close by too. I would highly recommend staying here!
“Ideal for a break at any time of year”
We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks earlier this year. We also stayed for a week last year. The apartment is tastefully furnished with a few statement pieces that actually really caught my eye! It is more like a well furnished home than a holiday let- there are toys, Cds, DVds, books and games and the kitchen is very well furnished. It is 2 bedroomed but actually very spacious and 6 or even 8 guests could happily stay here. Eyemouth itself is lovely. A wee fishing village with lots fo lovely shops and pubs- its ideal for a break at any time of year. I was rather surprised at the previous reviewers comments- if you book a seaside apartment actually on the harbour you have to expect some seagull noise!! They sleep at night like we do so definitely do not make a noise all night long!We love the noise of the birds and the fishing boats coming back- such a pleasant change from motorway traffic or shouting neighbours! We did not hear any noise at all from the cafe but we wouldn't expect too as it is two floors about the bedrooms! I would highly recommended- except for guests who do not like seagulls!
“loverly location but very noisy”
we stayed here for 3 nights,on arrival we didn't think much to the outside of the building needed abit of TLC,but we was pleasantly surprised when getting into apartment,it was clean,modern and plenty of space,all the extras was great it felt like you was at home,everything you needed although a few things needed updating/fixing. great view out window and the place itself was very nice for a few nights stay. The only downside was the fact it was very very noisy,we didn't get much sleep at all,we left feeling absolutely shattered,the apartment is on top of a cafe which opens early in a morning,also on the back of the property is a fishing company which started very early but the worst thing was the seagulls they sat outside the window squawking all night long!!! also the single beds could do with new mattresses they wasn't very nice to sleep on. overall it was ok for a few nights but defiantly couldn't stay any longer,its such a shame as its a lovely location.
Owner's reply: Thank-you for your response and I am glad you liked the apartment which we think of as a home from home. The single bed mattresses have been replaced, many thanks for bringing this to our attention. The noise is not something that we can control especially the seagulls! There is not a fishing factory behind the apartment- there is one a few minutes walk up Harbour Road however in all the time we have stayed there we have never heard any noise from it. There is noise sometimes from the fishing boats but again that's a consequence of staying on the harbour. All windows are double glazed and have black out blinds so we do what we can to minimize the harbour noise but we have obviously failed with the seagulls!
