“Fantastic apartment we are still talking about”

After 30 years away my husband and I decided to return to the Edinburgh Festival. And this time we were bringing our adult children (and their partners) with us.

We decided to book an apartment rather an a hotel as we were not sure who was coming when and chose the North Castle Street property as it could accommodate all three couples.

The apartment is arranged over two floors. My husband and I took the penthouse with its own en-suite and the kids had the two bedrooms on the main floor with their own bathroom. There was a spacious lounge with TV and views of the castle.

The fully equipped kitchen was a hub for breakfast and discussing the shows we'd seen and were planning to see. We only cooked one evening meal as a family as there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The co-op is handy for picking up breakfast supplies.

It was a lovely touch to find the owners had left us a "goody" basket filled with local produce.

The luxury apartment contained furnishing and décor of a high standard. There was free Wi-Fi available - great for planning our schedule of shows and events.

The location could not be faulted. Just off Princes Street, it was within easy walk of shopping and all the major attractions. It was a pleasant walk across the park to the Royal Mile and most of the show venues.

This was our first extended family holiday and the whole family were very impressed with the accommodation. It was comfortable and homely, but luxurious. It was spacious, so we were not on top of each other, but allowed restful areas for us to come together.

This apartment is highly recommended.

Five of us stayed in the apartment for a week, and we all loved it. Our favorite aspects: a cozy-yet-spacious kitchen great for both visiting and cooking, comfortable beds, perfect location in New Town that was both quiet and centrally located near great cafes, restaurants, and museums. The kitchen window also had a view of Edinburgh Castle! The owners were very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.

“Amazing place, brilliant location!”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were met by Ian, the owner, who was very friendly and talked us through all we would need to know about the apartment and the area. We were very surprised by the thoughtfulness of the owners, in the kitchen we were met with a large complimentary hamper full of yummy Scottish produce and my 4 year old daughters bed had a white chocolate rabbit on the pillow. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and very spacious. The whole stay was perfect and we will definitely be back.

“Location, Location, Location!”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at the apartment over Christmas and having stayed at other central locations for the past 3 years, North Street was by far the best location we have been to. The accommodation was lovely, a real home from home, it was also decorated for Christmas which was a nice touch.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 10 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The pictures don't do justice to the apartment, it vastly more spacious and gorgeous. We were impressed by the size of the rooms, the furnishing making you feel at home immediately. Location is really convenient in the shopping district but the flat is quiet at night. Easy to use parking. Plus the owners have been delightful and very helpful during the overall process. If I come back to Edinburgh, I will definitely book this place again.

“Good choice”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We rented North Castle for two main reasons: 1) its walkable proximity to restaurants, pubs, the Castle and other sites; 2) its private, secure parking, included in the price. We made a good choice.

Ian met us at the apartment, and provided a generous basket of goodies. He explained where attractions were and how things worked .... and when we forgot, there were ample booklets to read. The rooms were all large; the main bedrooms were on different floors, so lots of privacy.

We did have trouble with the water, but he should by now have it resolved. There were quite a number of stairs, so book only if able-bodied.

“A great place to stay.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We are a family of 7 adventurous travelogs. We were excited by the location and the views of the castle just outside the front door. The walk to the town center was also a pleasant stroll down the block and to the left. Words can not express how helpful Ain was with information on local attractions and points of interest. YES...we would do it again....
