“As advertised -great location, nice views, and lovely hosts”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in August 2016

It was our first visit to Edinburgh and first Fringe festival. Staying here made it a memorable first time in the very best sense. Aileen was, is, a responsive and lovely hostess. The apartment is perfect for a couple but may be tight for a 3rd adult. While we had no issue with this, just be aware that, yes, the bathroom is as small as it looks in the pictures. Husband is about 6 Ft and 280 lbs. And was just able to get whole self into shower with door closed. Turning around in shower, you will brush up against door/ wall. If this is something that will bother you... think twice. For us, not a big deal, I would book this apartment again if (when) we return!

“Beautiful and Brilliant Castle View Apartment”
Reviewed 2 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

From the moment I booked the "Castle View Apartment" in Edinburgh Scotland I was greeted by the incredibly gracious hospitality offered by Aileen and her team. The Castle View Apartment is truly spectacular in its warmth of decor and ease of location. The entire visit to Edinburgh Scotland was enhanced by the tourist information Aileen provided prior to the arrival of my wife and me. The convenient amenities of the apartment, the fabulous location of the property, and the entire ambiance of the accommodations helped to make the Castle View Apartment our home away from home. My wife and I will most certainly be telling all of our family, friends, and colleagues about Aileen and the brilliant properties she offers in Edinburgh Scotland.

“Great Stay”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I traveled with my husband and daughter to Edinburgh for a visit and stayed here. It is in a great location, close to lots of good pubs and restaurants. The Hop on Bus stops just down the street with the view of the Castle on the hillside above and the Royal Mile is only a 10 minute walk away. Walking distance to Waverly Train station and Princess street. The room was clean, comfortable and well stalked with anything you will need for a short stay. Good communication with the owner and their was someone to meet us when we arrived.
I would stay here again on our next visit

“Great apartment”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a lovely stay in the apartment for 2 nights. It was clean and fresh, and true to the online pics. Excellent facilities in the apartment. Fold out bed was a bonus for our adult daughter to. Good location for restaurants, bars and easy access to tourist attractions. Loved the view of the castle from the lounge room. Aileen was an excellent host, prompt and thorough communication before and during our stay. Would highly recommend the apartment to others.
