Great location atmospheric and comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
Highly recommend this well appointed and situated flat. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Perfect location for exploring the city and there is an excellent farmer's market nearby on Saturdays. Host and property manager were very helpful and responsive. Have rented many places in many cities and this was a standout.

Great location, great apartment, great holiday

We loved the apartment, just right for the two of us and our two adult children. Very well equipped and only a few minutes walk from anywhere in the city centre. We hope to be back.

Lovely, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 out of 5
Very attractive flat, perfectly placed for attending a conference at the EICC, with brilliant Sainsburys nearby for all self catering needs, plus lots of restaurants and bars. In the flat itself, beds and sofas were very comfy, the back bedroom was extremely quiet and all the important equipment is there for cooking, plus there's an iron and hair dryer. Communication with the owner was excellent and I was met at the flat by a friendly and helpful person. I had such a wonderful week I'm thinking of moving back to Edinburgh! Thank you :-)

The flat is locating is a very convenient location very near the tourist areas of Edinburgh. It also has wonderful restaurants, shopping, etc. near. The owner was very responsive to my numerous emails asking for advice, etc. I felt it was a great value for the price! I would recommend this flat to anyone wanting to explore Edinburgh and be in the city center!

Excellent property and location. Lovely and clean

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was lovely and clean and very large for a two bedroom apartment. The owner was more than helpful and couple who met us at the apartment were again very helpful. I would definately go back again.

Castle Terrace is a luxurious apartment in the heart of Edinburgh. This incredibly beautiful city is easy to explore on foot. Princes Street, The Royal Mile and the lively Grassmarket are a few minutes walk away. For outlying attractions (The Royal Yacht Britannia, The Botanic Gardens, Dynamic Earth etc) the hop on hop off tourist bus stops a few metres away. Every Saturday there is a farmers' in Castle Terrace. This will satisfy anyone wishing to taste Scottish fare with porridge, croissants, bacon and Angus beef burgers and cheese to sample. If more serious self catering is on the agenda you will find Scottish cheeses, venison, fresh fish and seafood, smoked salmon and haddock, Aberdeen Angus Beef, lamb and mutton.

The nearby restaurants and bars are too numerous to mention and will suit every taste and pocket.. The Castle Terrace Michelin starred restaurant is just next door, the Usher Hall and theatres just behind the apartment. Despite their close vicinity you will get a good night's sleep as the location of the apartment is not on a main thoroughfare for traffic or revellers.
