My partner and I stayed in the apartment along with our 5 year old and six month old baby. The flat was fantastic and catered for all our needs. A cot, bedding, changing mat and towel were provided which made our stay a lot easier as we didn't need to pack so much for the baby. The flat was warm... More

My husband and I stayed at the Apartment by Castle over Christmas 2013. It was my husband’s first trip to Edinburgh, and my last visit was over 25 years ago. Moira met us just as we arrived from London, and had the kettle on for tea to warm us up on the brisk winter day. She showed us the many... More

Where to start! First the location is perfect. An amazing view of the castle as well as other parts of Edinburgh...the Grassmarket, George Heriot's, etc. Its location is great for access to the castle, the Royal Mile, the Grassmarket and many restaurants. The apartment itself is very well maintained and has all the comforts of home. Very spacious especially after... More

Each time we've traveled to Scotland, we always mix our types of accommodations: a little B&B, a hotel or two and self-catering. Believe me, not all self-catering hosts are as gracious and thoughtful as Moira and Eric Bowman. Besides the attention to detail they lavished on the refurbishment of the property at 16/4 Johnston Terrace, there is the absolutely complete... More

We recently stayed at the 11/1 Johnston Terrace apartment for a week in connection with our daughter's wedding in Edinburgh. We wanted an apartment "home" at which she could make her preparations on her wedding day and where we could receive family and the couple's friends, many of whom were traveling from afar for the ceremony. The apartment was the... More

As a family of four its soooo nice to be able to spread out in an apartment, have a kitchen and LAUNDRY! I can't even imagine staying in a hotel on our trips... More

My family and I were blown away when we first walked into the apartment. The views are superb! The castle is right outside the left window. And the Royal Mile is barely 1 min up the street.The apt had some much space! There were 4 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out. The apt was so... More

Unsure where to stay for our first trip we took a chance on this apartment and could not have been happier with everything about the place. The view of the Castle is unreal.It is located by the Royal Mile and tons of restaurants and shopping. We stayed 3 nights and could have easily stay two weeks or more in this... More

We were 2 couples looking for a nice place in the heart of Edinburgh that was not a hotel. We located Apartment by Castle via Tripadvisor and reserved a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights. It turned out to be right next to the castle in easy walking distance of everything. It was spacious, excellently appointed with everything and perfectly... More

Staying in the apartment was a complete delight, from our first contact to make the booking, to the excellent and friendly communication prior to arrival, and then the warm welcome from Moira when we arrived (imcluding the welcome basket of very useful items such as bread, jam, butter, cheese biscuits, cereal, milk, etc.), we could not have been more satisfied....
