Apartment By Castle
Ranked #15 of 215 Specialty Lodging in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2006

Apartment by Castle was the perfect setting for our last week in Scotland. The apartment was just as advertised, and Moira and Eric couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. They met us at the apartment on arrival and helped us carry our "stuff" up, and when we left they even came over at 5:30 am to take us to our car in order to save us some time to get to the airport. They provided us with a parking spot a bit away from the apartment, which worked out very well, as parking in the vicinity is very restrictive.

The apartment is perfect. 2nd floor of the building, which gets you off the street, but you don't have to climb flights and flights of stairs. There are 2 bedrooms with dressers and armoirs (one with double bed, one with twins, worked well for us and our 2 teenagers), a nice bathroom with shower, a comfortable living room, and a functional kitchen. Arriving during our 3rd week in the country, we were ready to cook, which Moira told us is quite unusual, but we'd had plenty of steak pie and chips and needed something a bit lighter. There are plenty of pots, containers and tableware; the only fault I could find was the lack of spices, etc., which we're used to in the US in self-catering rentals (use what you want, leave something for the next people). It was great to be able to have breakfast in, tour around a bit, make some sandwiches at lunch, and either cook or go out for dinner. Moira and Eric provided a welcome basket with some basics to get us going - bread, butter, milk, cheese, tea, coffee, marmalade, shortbread, porridge, oat cakes - great when you come in late and just need something to start with in the morning.

The pictures in previous reviews are spot-on - the castle is right out the window. The location is convenient for touring, either the Royal Mile or Princes Street. We were very pleased with the accommodation, and would definitely go back.

We have just returned from a trip to Edinburgh where we stayed at the Apartment by the Castle. We cannot recommend it highly enough! The apartment is beautiful and comfortable - like a home away from home. Moira and Eric are lovely people and extremely helpful and knowledgeable (thanks for the tip about the Jolly Judge !!).
