“Great location in Edinburgh's old town”

The apartment is comfortable, stylishly furnished and well equipped and is located at one end of Grassmarket, Edinburgh old town's lovely old market street, right under the rock that the Castle sits on. It's within walking distance of all the main sights, the University, New Town etc. Our hosts looked after us well, some nice touches including chocolates and prosecco. We had a great time.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is brilliant and central with what must be one of the best views in Edinburgh. The apartment itself is lovely and there are a lot of personal touches put in there by Danni that make your stay extra special. Can't recommend highly enough.

Our stay at Castle Heights was more than I imagined. From the expected beautiful views of the castle and the well renovated apartment to the little unexpected surprises Danielle and Roland treat you with. The location couldn't have been better. Just down the street are pubs, cafes, and shops. I can't wait to stay again.

“Cozy home away from home”
Reviewed April 1, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This location can't be beat: castle views, comfortable and well decorated interior, secure and centrally located. This is great for a couple or single person visiting Edinburgh and wanting a cozy landing pad as they explore the city.

I cannot think of a more ideal location within Edinburgh in which to spend a city break in this wonderful city. The bonus for my husband and I was the view of Edinburgh Castle from both the lounge area and the bedroom - magnificent and Im sure we will be talking about our stay in this beautiful apartment in many years to come. The Grassmarket has a great atmosphere and is full to bursting with great restaurants and pubs. The shops in Princes Street aren't too far away either. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you would need for a short break and the owners Danielle and Roland were so kind and helpful throughout, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment and giving it 5 stars - we would give it more if we could! Many thanks again Danielle and Roland for making our wedding anniversary very special indeed.
