After tons of research, I zeroed in on castle view guest house, to spend our first marriage anniversary in an affordable place. After I reach the guest house, I'm told that I can only get the room after 4 pm,( they would give a call once the room is ready) as there's massive renovation going on, this after a 4... More

I stayed here in October 2014 in the week leading up to Halloween with my family and we had a great time. We were on the first floor looking out onto Castle Street. We had a massive family room with large well equipped en suite. The cooked breakfast was filling and they were happy to replace one item with another.... More

Wee overnighter with pals. 2 rooms sleeping 3 in each. Really clean, warm and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast and cosy dining room. Central location making it easier to get about. Lovely view of Castle from the room.

We stayed in this hotel at Christmas time, so quite a busy time of year in Edinburgh. Great location looking onto Edinburgh castle in the distance. Right next to George Street (where the good pubs, restaurants and clubs are) are around the corner from Princes Street also. Very central and about a 5/10 minute walk to Edinburgh Waverly Station. The... More

I stayed here for one night to save me having to travel after my office Christmas party. Great location as it's very central and the best of Edinburgh is walking distance. I booked a single room but got a double which was very comfortable and quiet. There are lots of stairs to climb which wasn't an issue for me but... More

Gonna keep it short, Location excellent, bang in town, room excellent (Castle), Breakfast excellent.. Would highly recommend for a few nights visiting Edinburgh, the stairs up may bother some people, they will keep you fit..Would stay again, no bother..

My husband and I stayed here in May, 2014. We only had 1 night in Edinburgh so we wanted to be as close to the city's highlights as possible. The location was exactly what we were looking for. Our room was very nice and clean, and breakfast was spectacular. However, we did get a parking ticket on our way out...... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Magic the manager was very accommodating. There were 5 of us in one room with plenty of space to move around. Within walking distance of anything in Old Town you want to see. Close to shopping, pubs and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in a good, central location. The dining room (and perhaps some rooms) have a view of Edinburgh Castle. There is no elevator, because the building is historic. Our room was a good size overlooking an alley. When taking a shower, it sounded like there was an elephant in the room. I guess it was the mechanism that... More
