“Wonderful cozy town apartment”
Reviewed April 6, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The apartment is a beautiful city apartment right in the heart of Edinburgh Old Town, close to the famous Grassmarket. The majority of sights are within walking distance. We were there with our 5 and 8 year old kids who mastered everything very well.
The apartment itself is absolutely clean. We have never had an apartment in a holiday, where there was nothing to complain about as in this case. Peter Tucker was very sympathic and welcomed us on arrival to show everything. The fridge was already filled with a breakfast and a welcome carafe of whiskey was also provided. The apartment was equipped with everything you could ask for: coffee / black tea, sugar, French coffee maker, toaster, microwave, washing machine with integrated dryer, detergent, dishwasher, towels, garbage bags, fine hand soap and shower gel in the bathroom, hair dryer, bathroom towels. All is very high standard, which we are not used to from Germany.
Unfortunately, on the last day of the holiday, we had to go to the children's hospital with our daughter. Although we were very nervous and didn't know about the Scottish medical system, we were able to call the Medical Advice and a taxi with the folder provided by Peter.
Thank you Peter that you have made us such a nice uncomplicated cozy holiday with your apartment! We would love to come back!

“Excellent location”
Reviewed April 6, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This cozy holiday apartment has everything you need and is perfectly located in Edinburgh's Old Town. The grassmarket with its pubs is just a 2-minutes' stroll away, a supermarket is just down the street and several bars and restaurant are scattered about within a 10-minutes' walk. Other sights such as the Castle or the Royal Mile are also very close by.
The flat itself is nicely decorated and well-equipped. The whisky and the breakfast items Peter provided us with made our arrival very pleasant and we immediately relaxed and felt at home at Castle View.
We would highly recommend this apartment and it would definitely be our first choice when we visit Edinburgh again.

“Old Town Charm”
Reviewed August 4, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castle View Apartment in Old Town. A convenient location to walk along Grassmarket, where restaurants and entertainers often fill the street. We appreciated the apartments cleanliness and efficient space. A relaxing atmosphere with all the necessities were more than we expected. We would highly recommend this apartment and hope we can return some day in the future. Many thanks for your thoughtfulness of coffee, tea and breakfast to start our day.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The apartment is great! We spent 10 days at this very comfortable apartment and we were so pleased that we would choose it again. Apartment is equipped with style. Location of apartment is perfect, located almost in center of Old Town, so any attraction can be reached with walking. Nearby you have restaurants, pubs, shops, Sainsburys Local is nearby….
Owner Peter was very friendly, gave us a lot of information and useful advices. He was always available for our needs or question, communication with him was perfect. He even left us something for breakfast, because we arrived on Sunday afternoon.

“A gem of a place ”
Reviewed June 18, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed at this wonderful centrally located apartment for 4 nights with our teenage daughters . It felt like a home away from home . Each and every little detail has been looked into and it is very well maintained and spotlessly clean . It was a pleasure to come back to this apartment in the evening after a hectic day . My girls loved the place and the atmosphere it had .Peter has looked into every possible detail to make the apartment comfortable and the little touches like the whiskey ( thank you Peter we enjoyed that after a very tiring day ) , the croissants, it was very kind of him to think of these things and much appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful stay .
