“A very special place to stay”

person found this review helpful

East Lothian and North Berwick are great for a holiday, and 'a bit on the side' is a perfect place to stay.
It is close to the centre of town and the station, yet very quiet and relaxing.
The accommodation is of a very high standard with everything provided, even fresh milk in the fridge. Bed, shower etc. are all superior quality.
Patrick, our host seemed more like a relative welcoming his family, well done!
All in all, not just 'a bit on the side' but a very special place to stay.

“Belter of a wee Place”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

North Berwick is a crackin wee place (apart from the Chinese - dont go there) and this little "Bit on the Side" made it all the better.

Patrick the owner was very welcoming and approachable with some great advice (which we didnt follow hence the CHINESE - Dont go there!!) and plenty of little pointers which helped us out to no end.

A Bit on the side was clean, comfy and with everything you need in-case you get rained in (TV, DVDS) and Tea, biscuits, milk and a wee bottle of champers for your arrival.

All in all we loved it, would recommend it and would definitely return.

thanks Patrick :)

“Stylish and very comfortable”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Set on a quiet street with easy parking the apartment is beautifully decorated and had everything one could need for a relaxing break. The host, Patrick, was friendly and very kind especially when I was unwell. His trusting attitude was so refreshing and we even met his new kitten! I cannot recommend this place enough plus North Berwick is a delightful town to visit.
