“Very comfortable. Very relaxing”
We loved the house. Exactly as advertised. Wonderful welcome. We were shown all around the house. Informing us how everything worked An excellent welcome pack We were near all the amenities. Good walks. Good restaurants. Great ice cream shop for the children. We left North Berwich feeling relaxed and renergised. Will definitely go back again
Owner's reply: Delighted with this family's excellent review.Looking forward to their promised return.
“Another fantastic week”
Just enjoyed our 4th visit to Marine lodge and again the property didn’t disappoint. Exceptionally clean warm and welcoming as always and of course everything you need is there awaiting you On arrival we encountered the Xmas lights switch on with carols around the tree outside the church which was most unexpected but non the less really enjoyable We also , as well as the usual fab days we had , visited the Xmas markets in Edinburgh which were truly magical so much so we visited twice. £6.50 return on the train no car/parking worries it’s an absolute must this time of year Marine lodge/North Berwick I say no better place this time of year
Owner's reply: Delighted that these returning guests had a great stay. They make some very useful seasonal remarks about why North Berwick and nearby Edinburgh have year round appeal. Travel to Edinburgh is so easy - yet all the benefits of this great seaside town can be enjoyed if choosing it as a base.
“Fantastic property in a fantastic location”
Our 3rd visit can't wait for the 4th Warm and welcoming property well worth a visit as is North Berwick itself
Owner's reply: Very grateful Andrew. We will continue to offer you the warmest of welcomes. Thank you for your kind review.
“Ideal for long weekend and very comfortable”
My wife and I stayed for a long weekend along with her parents. Both bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable super-king beds. Although bathrooms are not en suite to the bedrooms, they are close by and with there being two we had "one each". The couches in the lounge are all comfortable enough to sit around for several hours if the weather is not at its best, as was the case for our stay. Central heating performs very well making the house cosy, but putting the woodburning stove on creates a good atmosphere. We only ate in for breakfast - there are plenty places to eat out within a few minutes walk - so the kitchen didn't get a full test, but it did what we needed it to do. Would happily book again if visiting North Berwick.
Owner's reply: Great to hear this family of 4 people had a lovely stay and enjoyed the space and comfort provided by the apartment. Highlighted were the comfortable beds and spacious sitting room and bathrooms. We look forward to their indicated return and welcoming them back.
“Great apartment in perfect location - fantastic holiday”
We spent Christmas 2015 at Marine Lodge, North Berwick. Having never spent Christmas in a holiday home, we were certainly apprehensive! We could not have been happier. From the great communication and information before our arrival, to the fantastic festive decorations in the house and the generous and thoughtful welcome pack (the kids LOVED their flashing noses!). The house itself is set back from the main shopping street in North Berwick, however it is quiet and has a beautiful entrance. Only one street from the beach it is the perfect location for eveything. The house is grand and spacious, whilst being warm and comfortable. It is decorated and finished to a high spec and the towels and bedding were of a high quality. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need - dishwasher, washing machine etc. and really benefits from a large fridge freezer! Everything was clean and well cared for and we thought it was very good value for the quality and area. We genuinely didn't want to come home. Our after 'sales' service has been great too - returning lost property and making sure we'd had a great holiday. Highly recommend for adults and children alike and would love to return.
Owner's reply: So pleased this family enjoyed a great Christmas holiday at the apartment at Marine Lodge. We try to give enough useful information to all potential customers without being overbearing. So pleased the family enjoyed the Christmas "decorative" touches and children's fun presents ! They highlight :- - the great location - we know this really makes a significant difference. - the space and comfort - the facilities and amenities - the quality furnishings and bedding - the kitchen equipment In short we are so pleased this family had such a great time and enjoyed the accommodation and support and service they received. Always appreciated to hear that they would not only recommend to others but wish to return themselves also.
“Marine Lodge, an outstanding apartment”
This apartment is well appointed and well positioned with regard to the beach, shops and golf course. I have just re-booked for my 3rd stay within two years at this wonderfully spacious apartment, that is how good I think this property is. The owner and the local manager ensure that the property remains in top condition and that guests are well catered for. Book this property and you will not be disappointed.
Owner's reply: Lovely to receive this excellent review. It emphasises:- - the great location - the space - the maintenance What pleases us most is that this customer has rebooked for next year for a third time in two years. Always great to receive guest recommendations to others also.
“Excellent property fantastic location”
Marine Lodge is stunning property in a fantastic location. The property offers a warm welcoming and cosy feel. It's extremely well appointed and very clean. North Berwick is a fantastic place for walking, golfing and boasts many eating establishments suiting all pallets. We will definitely return to this property and highly recommend as place to stay.
Owner's reply: Delighted with this review. It highlights the warm & welcoming feeling you wioll enjoy. In addition it emphasises the cleanliness, the amenities and the fantastic location the apartment enjoys, near the sea and town and transport and shops. Always lovely to hear a guest wishing to return.
“Fabulous place in North Berwick”
Andrew and his team have a wonderful spot at Marine Lodge nestled in the East Lothian hamlet of North Berwick. Two bedrooms and a great room with updated bathrooms and full kitchen, it offers all the amenities needed for a vacation place. Located just a simple 30 min train ride from Edinburgh so you can do the big city and still come home to a restful place. Views of the Firth of Forth from the front offer the relaxing views of the waterfront. Everything in North Berwick is within walking distance from the famous West Links for golfers to the variety of dining (most want reservations so check it out and book early especially if you are eating at Osteria). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marine Lodge and highly recommend it to others.
Owner's reply: So grateful of this glowing review from a lovely Taxan family. We appreciate the remarks on our team here to welcome all guests and they highlight the comfort, size and great location for all pursuits and interests. Most grateful that they mention the size of the very sociable sitting room and the appeal of the upgraded modern bathrooms / wet room.
“Superb home from home retreat”
Great property, perfectly located for beach, golf and local shops and dog friendly. Sea view rooms, spacious bedrooms, great wet-room. Would recommend The Herringbone for lunch and Archerfield Walled Garden a short drive away. This is the second time we have stayed in 7 months. Will definitely be returning later in the year. The worst thing about this property is having to leave :o)
Owner's reply: Great to receive such a glowing review. So pleased this couple wish to return and find it perfect.
“Superior property in an ideal location”
Stunning property in central location with parking. Everything has been thought about to ensure that this an ideal home from home. Quality fixtures and fittings give the apartment a real wow factor.
Owner's reply: We are so pleased that these "relatively local" Scottish visitors had a great time and appreciated the thought and attention given to their comfort and surroundings whilst staying in the apartment. To say the apartment gave them a "wow" factor is always lovely to know. We greatly appreciate their remarks. Thank you.
