The location of this flat could have not been better. We loved walking through the Grass Market area on our way to the Royal Mile. And could see the castle out the living room window. Peter met us on our arrival and went over what we needed to know about the flat. He also responded when we asked for additional towels and needed a door knob fixed. It was a wonderful place for our week in Edinburgh.
Great place to stay for our family while visiting Edinburgh to look at graduate school. Peter had breakfast supplies - and tea fixings - waiting for us. (A life-saver after traveling 18+ hours to get there!)
Wonderfully decorated apartment with all the “extras” we needed for our trip (including a drying rack for our damp clothes after walking through the city in the rain all day).
Very convenient location to walk to all the major sites. Many restaurants and shops nearby.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this apartment and will book again the next time we visit Edinburgh.
The apartment is a beautiful city apartment right in the heart of Edinburgh Old Town, close to the famous Grassmarket. The majority of sights are within walking distance. We were there with our 5 and 8 year old kids who mastered everything very well.
The apartment itself is absolutely clean. We have never had an apartment in a holiday, where there was nothing to complain about as in this case. Peter Tucker was very sympathic and welcomed us on arrival to show everything. The fridge was already filled with a breakfast and a welcome carafe of whiskey was also provided. The apartment was equipped with everything you could ask for: coffee / black tea, sugar, French coffee maker, toaster, microwave, washing machine with integrated dryer, detergent, dishwasher, towels, garbage bags, fine hand soap and shower gel in the bathroom, hair dryer, bathroom towels. All is very high standard, which we are not used to from Germany.
Unfortunately, on the last day of the holiday, we had to go to the children's hospital with our daughter. Although we were very nervous and didn't know about the Scottish medical system, we were able to call the Medical Advice and a taxi with the folder provided by Peter.
Thank you Peter that you have made us such a nice uncomplicated cozy holiday with your apartment! We would love to come back!
This cozy holiday apartment has everything you need and is perfectly located in Edinburgh's Old Town. The grassmarket with its pubs is just a 2-minutes' stroll away, a supermarket is just down the street and several bars and restaurant are scattered about within a 10-minutes' walk. Other sights such as the Castle or the Royal Mile are also very close by.
The flat itself is nicely decorated and well-equipped. The whisky and the breakfast items Peter provided us with made our arrival very pleasant and we immediately relaxed and felt at home at Castle View.
We would highly recommend this apartment and it would definitely be our first choice when we visit Edinburgh again.
