We stayed at Apartment by Castle 16/4 for three nights, and could not have asked for better accommodations. The view was fantastic -- literally right at the castle! We were met by Eric -- he explained the history of the apartment, went through the entire place and provided eating recommendations. Moira left a welcome basket with delicious bread, coffee, and...

Warm, cosy flat, perfect for a new baby and to watch the Hogmanay fireworks. Moira was very hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Close to everything, made Edinburgh very accessible as we could walk everywhere. Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to enjoy Edinburgh for Hogmanay and booked a three night stay at 11/1 Johnston Terrace. Moira was extremely helpful from booking stage right through to departure date. She offered us advice concerning the arrival to avoid road closures as well as meeting us at the apartment and giving us further 'insider knowledge' about Edinburgh and where... More

We were met by the friendly owners who told us all about the apartment, parking, eating out etc. We loved our welcome pack of bread, milk, coffee and all essentials was much appreciated. There is a Sainsburys Local about 5 minutes walk away from the apartment. We felt right at home after a very short period of time. Up a... More

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
