My family can't praise enough of this wonderful apartment! Moira's constant communication via email were outstanding. We love the view from the apartment, location is simply a spot on! Eric was very welcoming and even brought us for a short guided walk through Royal Mile. The apartment is immaculately clean and all the furnishings are vintage yet classic - which... More

Absolutely perfect apartment and location in Old Town. Eric and Moira were so easy to work with and they were so helpful with trip ideas and suggestions. Lovely welcome package. The apartment exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend the apartment (11/1) for trips with family and friends. Fantastic view of the castle and conveniently located to restaurants, shops, attractions, grocery store... More

We stayed here about 3 weeks ago and I really don't know how it could have been better. From the moment we inquired about the apartments, the communication with Moira and Eric was excellent. We booked well in advance (you will need too) and they would even send occasional emails with local deals that were occurring while we would be... More

This is a beautiful apartment. We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. Situated in a central position in the old town, everything was on the doorstep. Moira was extremely informative, especially with regard to getting a taxi from the station to the apartments with luggage. The apartment is full of tourist information also. We will be back here,...

Firstly the owners had great communication prior to our stay. But we were somewhat disappointed contrary to the rave reviews on Tripadvisor. Communication is done by email once we arrived, not by phone (long distance charges). So we went 2 days without hot water and heat as the heater had shut down, and communication lagged behind with the internet. There... More

If you are looking for an ideal location to stay in Edinburgh, look no further. The location is absolutely ideal and Moira and Eric (owners) are helpful and knowledgeable. The flat was spacious and clean with nice furnishings and great architectural details. The bedrooms were large with good storage for all of our clothes and luggage. The beds were on... More

My wife and I stayed here (apt. 16/4) in July and were extremely pleased. The owners communicated with us frequently in the months between our booking and our arrival and were very attentive without in any way being intrusive during our stay. The apartment itself is exactly as described; comfortable for four but quite spacious for just the two of... More

From the moment we booked until we boarded the train to leave we had fantastic service and communication. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Moira who thoroughly went through the apartment with us answering any questions we had. They had included a lovely welcoming basket as well. The 2 bedrooms were perfect for a family of four. The bathroom... More

My husband, father and I stayed in 1 of the 2 apartments available for rental - 11/1 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh. The apartment is fantastic - roomy, comfortable, everything you could possibly want. The location is even better. If you are driving, parking is problematic, however, we were incredibly lucky and scored 1 of 2 available carparks opposite the apartment. Moira... More

During the booking and lead up to our recent stay with Apartment by Castle we had a series of questions and sought information from the hosts, they were extremely knowledgeable and extremely quick to respond to all and any questions we had.
