“Fantastic, Central Apartment”

Amazing apartment with fantastic views of the castle. Situated roughly 50m from the Grassmarket; which is perfect as it is far enough away to not be disturbed by all of the noise that emanates from the many pubs on the Grassmarket! Very well decorated and furnished, comfortable beds, extremely nice bathroom. Pastries, porridge and orange juice provided in the fridge, as well as a decanter of whiskey (very kindly topped up midway through our two week stay!). Good wifi connection, situated in a quiet and secure block of apartments. Washer drier provided for doing laundry, and a dishwasher for dishes. I've stayed in a few different holiday apartments in Edinburgh, this was by far the best. I could not recommend it highly enough.

Fabulous spacious 2 double bed apartment in central Edinburgh. The owner Peter met and welcomed us. Showing how everything worked and brought milk, juice, porridge and pastries. He also left a decanter of whiskey!
Everything you need for a stay in the city.
Highly recommend and would book again.

“No need to go anywhere else”
Reviewed December 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is my second review of Peters property and of Peter himself. The review could be a mirror image of my first one back in 2012. Lets me start with the apartment it was just how I remembered just immaculate, decorated to a high standard, fabulous location, within easy reach of the city centre.We arrived late afternoon and once again Peter met us at the apartment and gave us a brief introduction to the facilities and heating system etc. The welcome decanter of whiskey was still in evidence along with tea, coffee, and selection of breakfast pastries for our first morning. Peter is a thoroughly nice guy and he is keen to make anyones stay at his apartment as pleasurable as possible. If you are considering a trip to Edinburgh I really hope you can stay here. You will not be dissapointed.

Excellent stay in clean, central and well appointed apartment. The visit was made even better by the extra little touches and wonderful welcome provided by Peter. Will definitely be back again.

My husband, daughter and I loved, loved our stay at the Castle View apartment. Peter considers every aspect of your comfort, from orientation in the flat itself and in greater Edinburgh (there's an information binder as well as brochures to assist you in every conceivable way), to the blackout shades, to extensive kitchen supplies, to the decanter of Scotch. The flat is very well-located, spotless and comfortable, a fantastic place to come back to after a full day. We would go back in a heartbeat--and hope to, one day.
