Beautiful apartment central to everywhere

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great weekend in Edinburgh. The apartment was spotless, it’s really spacious and so nicely decorated. Big lofty rooms tastefully decorated we could have stayed in and had a great time! Very easy to communicate with Val and Ashley who kindly lets us check in early and late when we left. I would definitely stay here again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others!

A wonderful flat in a great area.

  • 5 of 5

I spent four weeks and flat and enjoyed every minute. The owner is a very gracious lady. You are at the foot of Edinburgh Castle and within walking distance to all the main attractions. There are numerous pubs and restaurants within 1 to 2 blocks of flat they are about 10 to 15 percent cheaper than Royal Mile area and the food is as good if not better.

Looking forward to return trip

Wonderful airy apartment in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and I stayed in this apartment for a week in June. It truly IS in a perfect location - we could easily walk up the hill to the castle, or across the parks to the downtown/museum area. The beds are comfortable; every room was well-stocked - all our needs were met or exceeded. We loved it; no complaints at all. A grocery store, a used bookstore, and a bakery are right around the corner, very convenient. It's also a fairly easy walk to Dean's village, and a very easy walk to the Grassmarket area. Lots to do!

Spacious and convenient, enjoyed our stay in this sunny apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Close enough to enjoy Royal Mile, Grassmarket, museums and lots of restaurants and return for a rest before heading to your next activity. Enjoyed watching city wake up. Very close to theatre so check out ahead of your stay if that interests you. There are several flights of stairs to apartment and uphill to castle. Edinburgh is a city for staying in shape, so enjoy the pub food!

Don't hesitate - book this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for four nights in May and were not disappointed in any respect. It's all been said in other recent reviews and we couldn't agree more - great location (a short walk through the park to the New Town or up the road to the Old Town and Castle), very spacious and open, well equipped, comfortable bed, handy supermarket and so on. The booking and check in was efficiently handled. Well done Val.

Wonderful location at the base of the castle. We walked everywhere?

  • 5 of 5

The home is very spacious- there were just two of us, and we could have easily had another couple with us. The street is quiet and there's a nice view out back. The kitchen is well stocked, and several nights we cooked dinner rather than go out. Everything we needed was there - we lived the flat!

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.
