“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a great place and a great location. Everything was very new and up to date, and was clean and comfortable. It lived up to its name of "Castle view", as the castle can be clearly seen from the window.
Peter was very personable and gave us great recommendations and tips for our stay. He met us at the front door and carried our luggage up the steps for us. He even provided us with a booklet of activities, places, and helpful guides for our stay.
With its great location, it was easy to get to all of the major "tourist" spots as well as local areas including the farmers markets and small shops.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking to immerse themselves in Edinburgh for the week!

“Perfect location and beautiful apartment.”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed here in December with my wife, brother in law and his partner. Pete was very helpfull before we arrived. Arranging to meet us at a time that suited us and welcoming us to his apartment. The flat itself it very clean and has everything you would need for a relaxing stay in beautiful Edinburgh. A nice touch by Pete was the whisky and porridge he has for us that went down a treat, We will be staying here again hopefully next time a group of us head over to Edinburgh. Thanks Pete.

“Great Apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at this great apartment in mid September and haven't had a chance to write a review until now. It was a lovely, clean, warm apartment with plenty of room for 2 adults and our 2 teenage girls. It is in a very central spot with a supermarket just up the road. Peter is great, just as everyone else has mentioned.
We would stay again if we were to visit Edinburgh again. I only have one negative to mention and that is we found the bed in the main bedroom a bit hard and lumpy. No one else has mentioned this in their reviews so maybe it wasn't as bad as we remembered. In saying this I would definitely stay there again because everything else is just perfect.

Management Response

Hello Cathy,
Thanks for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Castle View Apartment. Thank you for mentioning the mattress in the main bedroom and I'm really sorry that you found it a bit hard and lumpy. One other guest (who stayed with us in August, just before your visit) had already mentioned this to us and it has since been replaced with a beautifully comfortable pocket sprung mattress. I'm only sorry that it wasn't there in time for your visit but am glad that this didn't spoil your stay. Many thanks again for all your comments and my very best wishes to you all,
Peter.

“Great apartment - I totally see why it only has 5* reviews”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a super week here. Great location. The attention to detail was impressive; lots of little things too numerous to list here, but possibly the best, was the decanter of good quality whisky left for guests to enjoy...................... whilst sitting on the sofa, in front of the fire, looking out at the stunning view of the imposing Edinburgh castle.

Lots of super restaurants in the vicinity, pubs, including the smallest in Scotland and the Film house Cinema. (We are visiting from France, so English cinema a treat!).

It is unusual for somewhere to exceed expectations, but we would definitely stay here again.
