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. Don't forget that beautiful Edinburgh, capital of Scotland is only 20 miles away (30 minutes by car or can be reached direct from the regular trains that stop at North Berwick station).

Owner's reply: Dear Kenny, I'm so very pleased that you both enjoyed your stay at The Imperial Apartment for Hogmanay 2018. You are right that there are so many amazing things to do in North Berwick - and further afield if you are happy to travel by car or train. I'm delighted to hear you will be coming back - I look forward to creating a lovely warm welcome for you again in the future. Kind regards, Tracey Pacitti ps..I just had my Visit Scotland inspection the week after your stay and am delighted to be awarded 5 stars again.
“Very good appartment in a great location.”
Don't be put off by the entrance lobby! The appartment itself is so much better than this first impression. It is set up for a maximum three people and offers very good space in this respect. It is very well appointed throughout and lounge, dinning and sleeping arrangements are all very good. If you prefer a bath you'll struggle but the appartment affords a very good shower and other bathroom facilities in the space available. It's extremely well positioned and at least a two minute walk to the best pub in town! Be mindful that it is on the second floor of three. We are quite fussy about noise and did experience some from above in the mornings but would have no real complaint. Our hosts were extremely attentive when we experienced a small issue with wifi and the welcome hamper was a very nice gesture. We have visited North Brewick a number of times but our preferred 5 star accommodation was not available this year. We're not sure we prefer it any more!
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at The Imperial Apartment. We enjoyed having you as our guests. I'm pleased to say that earlier this month we had our grading inspection by Visit Scotland and they have awarded us 5 stars again (that's 8 years in a row). It's fair to say the entrance lobby is uninspiring. White walls, concrete steps but this is a communal entrance and not part of our offering. Step inside our front door and enjoy a 5 star luxury experience. We are indeed on the 2nd floor of the building and have a ground floor, securely locked room if you decide to come with golf clubs, paddle boards, surf gear or other sports equipment. If you are returning to the area in the future, I'd be delighted to quote you once more. With very best wishes, Tracey Pacitti

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed review of your stay. I'm delighted that you had a great time; we're already looking forward to giving you a warm welcome later this year. With very best wishes, Tracey Pacitti (Owner)

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review of your luxury stay at The Imperial Apartment. We enjoyed having you as our guests and are delighted you enjoyed your welcome pack and our 5 star apartment. We hope we can welcome you again in the future. Best wishes, Tracey

Owner's reply: A google translation of the above is as follows - We were in August for 1 week in the accommodation and felt very comfortable. Everything was super clean and in the kitchen you could find everything you needed for the daily use. In the beds you could sleep wonderfully. The beach is just a few minutes walk. When we arrived we were greeted by a present with bread, butter, jam, milk, fruit and juice, everything you needed at the beginning. My response - Thank you so very much for your kind review, I'm delighted that you found the place to be spotless and the kitchen fully equipped. Whilst most of our guests eat out in all the fabulous restaurants and cafés in North Berwick (and East Lothian), we like to offer everything a guest might need to do a full sunday roast, a slow cooked stew or the equipment to do a spot of baking. I also appreciate the comments about our beds. We have purchased great quality mattress to aid sleep and cover these with mattress protectors so that they are as clean as the day we bought them. All our pillows (and there's a few to choose from on our pillow menu) are also covered with pillow protectors and there are different duvet options if you find yourself a little too hot or cold. Our black out blinds also help with the lie ins on the summer mornings. Thanks again for choosing and booking The Imperial Apartment; we look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes, Tracey Pacitti
