Edinburgh, United Kingdom, 2009/10/21 - If there were a Festival award for serviced accommodation, Ocean would be on the shortlist. Edinburgh Festival fanatics seeking affordable accommodation are turning to Ocean Serviced Apartments for a virtuoso performance.
While staying and playing at the world’s biggest and best known arts festival, visitors are booking into the well appointed accommodation on Edinburgh’s waterfront, just a curtain call from the city centre action.
With a level of comfort and convenience a cut above the average, the dedicated group accommodation at Ocean Serviced Apartments is already the subject of backstage gossip among clever troupes and groups. “We’ve already had enquires referred to us by Festival goers, looking to stay here while enjoying the Festival and the Fringe” says Graeme Ferguson, Ocean’s Direct Sales Manager.
The company, which operates sixty-eight serviced apartments on Edinburgh’s Waterfront development, has a block dedicated to groups travelling together – making the accommodation ideal for parties seeking accommodation and value.
The two-bedroomed, two-bathroomed apartments sleep up to six in comfort, without any of the usual Festival experiences of sofa beds and no living space. “We designated a block for group visitors,” says Graeme. “During the rest of the year, they’re very popular with hen and stag parties. Of course, they’re very popular with our family and corporate guests too – mainly because it means our party guests can be as high-spirited as they like without disturbing anyone else”.
During the Festival, it doesn’t matter how late the curtain call may be, groups can return as late as they like, and, if there’s an impromptu encore, there won’t be any heckling from the neighbours.
Ocean Serviced Apartments (oceanservicedapts.com) are on Western Harbour, Edinburgh – within walking distance of all the Fringe venues in Leith, and a short bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh.
