Although the room was small, it had enough room for a single traveller to place clothing, it had its own bathroom... More

After several stays in expensive but tiny hotel rooms in a Edinburgh, and needing a room for 3 adults, we decided to give this guesthouse a go. We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious, simply furnished but clean, quiet and with a lovely en-suite bathroom. The breakfast (included) was very good, try to grab a table by... More

Pros for this Guest House - good location - recently decorated - clean - pleasant breakfast CONS ... before booking my stay I emailed the hotel to make sure the room was en-suite. I got confirmation back that it was, so I was extremely disappointed on arrival that "En-suite" meant a sink in the bedroom and a bathroom at the... More

Fantastic central location, very comfy, spacious and very clean . Don't let the slightly disappointing entrance and stairs put you off, the rooms are great . The reason this I gave the castleveiw 4 stars instead of 5 was because of the breakfast, we ordered the full Scottish breakfast (fry up) as usual when we're away and it was excellent... More

We stayed here as a group of 4 friends for a Saturday night out in Edinburgh. This hotel is in a fantastic location just off Princes Street. The room we were in slept 4 and there was plenty of space and a lovely bathroom. The room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely even though we had to wait for a... More

In a great location very close to pubs and restaurants and attractions. Very friendly staff and always helpful. I had a single room with a private bathroom. All recently decorated. There is no lift but don't be put off by this - the stairs are manageable. Wpuld definitely stay there again

The good: Excellent location- walking distance to everything. Felt safe (solo female traveler). Fantastic breakfast. Clean, comfortable. Overall a pleasant experience. The indifferent: Lots of stairs, however this is typical for B&Bs in UK. The bad: Not the Guest House fault, but you may want to bring earplugs, as street noise was intrusive at times. (Drunk revelers singing loudly in... More

my mom and I stayed here back in 2011. It is in a great location and the breakfast was delicious. Staff was very friendly and our room was nice and clean. Lots of stairs so if that is a problem I'd look somewhere else.
