Great unit in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This unit is exceptionally well maintained. It was really clean and it was beautifully decorated for the festive season. It was perfect for us as a family of five as it is really spacious. The location is excellent, with great views of the Castle, centrally located to Princes St and Grassmarket so suits whatever you want to do in Edinburgh. Plenty of places to eat close by. I would strongly recommend this unit as a place to stay in Edinburgh

A wonderful birthday weekend.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish we had a great weekend celebrating our daughters 21st. The apartment was spotlessly clean, finished to a high standard and extremely comfortable for the six of us. It was much bigger than we imagined. The location was fantastic with plenty of bars and restaurants and we can recommend the Italian close by. The Sainsbury's at the end of the road was really useful for odds and ends. The service from both the owner and manager was excellent, and the homely touch of very tasteful Christmas decorations was perfect. We would thoroughly recommend this property, and are looking forward to booking again for future family gatherings.

Castle Terrace is a luxurious apartment in the heart of Edinburgh.

This attractive property is located in the historic Old Town district at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. Steeped in some of Edinburgh’s greatest history. Greater Grassmarket is only minutes walk away from the apartment and to the popular Royal Mile. The apartment is conveniently located for Lothian Road which has a wide and varied range of amenities including shops, restaurants, bars and bistros. Stroll along the old George IV Bridge, where you’ll meet the famous Greyfriars Bobby, before walking through some of Edinburgh’s oldest and most photographed streets including Candlemaker Row, Victoria Street, West Port and our famous view of the great Edinburgh Castle. A vibrant and popular meeting place for visitors and locals alike, you can soak up the medieval atmosphere and enjoy its splendid views of the nearby castle. The area is well served by buses, the new City tram service and an express bus runs from Waverley Station to Edinburgh International Airport. The railways stations of Waverley and Haymarket

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.
