This is a lovely quirky place to stay. 2 good sized comfortable beds, lovely clean modern bathroom. The kitchen has everything you may need. Brian's instructions to get here are spot on and he responds so quickly to any text. The location is amazing - on the Royal Mile seconds/minutes away from restaurants, shops and the Castle. The only reason I'm giving 4/5 is because it is noisy up until around 12 due to the pub next door and by 8/9 am the cafe outside is setting up tables - because I'm on medication I need my sleep - but ear plugs did the trick and for many it wouldn't be a problem at all. This place matches the history and atmosphere of Edinburgh perfectly.
The Castle Snug is practically perfect. The location couldn't be more ideal. Literally steps off of the Royal Mile. It was wonderful to be able to zip back to the Snug to take mini-breaks throughout the day, use the restroom (they can be hard to find on the Royal Mile), drop-off packages from shopping, etc. And, it is decorated beautifully. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Castle Snug was equipped with nearly anything you'd need to prepare a meal (if so included), was cozy and perfect for two people. French Press coffee maker, fridge, even a washer/dryer if needed. While it might be crowded with 4 people...it would certainly be doable. I would stay here again! The only downsides were two, and minor at that. The pub located next door can get a bit boisterous at night so can be loud if you're inclined to go to bed before 11pm or so. The upstairs mattress in the loft was very comfy, however, the mattress in the downstairs Murphy bed was a bit uncomfortable (although convenient to the bathroom). Accessing the apartment was easy and it was also simple to find. Lovely stay in a lovely city!
Couldn't have imagined how wonderful this experience would be until we arrived and absorbed the atmosphere of the property and location.. AN American couple asked if we owned it and would have been overjoyed to say yes . A wonderful romantic break will certainly be back
This is was an absolutely wonderful place to stay! Loved it! I was traveling with my 3 teenage kids and they were in love with the place! Central location with great pub and cafe next door. Brian and Christine were wonderful! Very responsive per email.
Fabulous stay, cracking place, as soon as we stepped through door we felt welcomed. The snug is just so cosy and comfortable, it was lovely to find some treats left for us and to have fresh milk and tea & coffee too.
The location is just perfect, in the heart of the royal mile, we actually felt like the castle was our neighbor!
From start to finish Brian & Christine we always on hand to help. We really did find a wonderful gem for first stay in Edinburgh, and will most definitely be booking again.
A wonderful cottage on two floors in the historical centre of Edinburgh.
Charming, comfortable and very nice for couples and families too. Nice kitchen -
with everything you need and much more - good heating, wifi, good quality beds and special furniture clearly designed by a person with a distinctive taste, probably an architect.
Easy to reach, with a parking near and at 4 minutes walk to the Castle.
The best choice I ever did. The owner is very friendly, professional and warm person, the wife too. They helped us with everything.
Let's book there, definitely.
