“Perfect position for busy days and quiet nights”
Reviewed 1 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location lives up to it's name of Castle View. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with local shops nearby for those wishing to cater for themselves. The botanic gardens are within a 5 minute walk. An excellent bus service goes to the heart of the city - frequent buses and very cheap. Princes Street is within walking distance. The views from the apartment are stunning with many landmarks visible - the apartment can also be picked out from Camera Obscura. A perfect setting for easy access to the vibrant city centre but with peace for a good nights sleep.

“Best view in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a lovely,bright quiet flat with a breathtaking view of the Edinburgh skyline. The playingfields in front of the building means you have an uninterrupted view of the city.
Local buses,which take you into the city centre, can be boarded at the end of the street and run very frequently.
We had no problems whatsoever with the booking, & Grahame met us at the time arranged on arrival & also called in at a suitable time for us when we were leaving.
I highly recommend this flat & hope we can use it again sometime.

“Brilliant!”

As they would say in Scotland! Castle View is absolutely lovely! The view is the best in the city - we have watched the fireworks from the Tattoo every night and we have the best seat to do so right here! You can see the city end to end! The apartment is bright, clean, safe and has all the amenities you need! I booked this as a surprise trip for my husbands 60th birthday and it was perfect. Grahame is charming and very responsive in any questions you may have. We recommend this apartment for a very "Braw" holiday in Scotland!

This flat is first class in a very modern and luxurious building with a breathtaking view of Edinburgh skyline.
Location is fantastic (you can get to the city centre in about 10 minutes with the bus stop just one block away)
The apartment is very confortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Grahame .the ownwer is very friendly and helpful and I would unreservedly recommend castle View apartment to anyone.
