About Numberfive

All the apartments are within an impressive Georgian style building set back from the main road where there is unrestricted parking. There is an excellent bus service almost at the door. Buses run to and from Princes Street every 5 minutes during the day. They take approximately 20 minutes and the adult fare is £1 each way.

We have owned and operated the apartments for over 20 years. We provide comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation for the discerning visitor and operate a no smoking policy throughout the building. Whether you stay in a single room or one of our self contained suites you'll find that each is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The volume of repeat visitors and word of mouth allows us to keep our costs low and offer very competitive prices.

The Area

The apartments are situated in the quiet seaside area of portobello. Only 200 metres from a blue flag beach and a wide promenade which stretches for nearlt 2 miles. The local swimming pool and fitness facilities have been completely refurbished and are open 7 days a week. Local shops and a variety of restaurants, cafes and take aways are open late in the evening and on Sundays so you do not have to worry about bringing groceries with you.

Both Meadowbank and Musselburgh Sports Complexes are only a mile away, easily reached by bus or car. They offer extensive facilities including squash, table tennis, badminton and fitness rooms. There are 3 golf courses nearby which welcome visitors.

There is a large shopping complex nearby with Mega bowl, multi screen cinema and a wide variety of shops and food outlets.
