We traveled to Edinburgh for a bit of a family reunion and my family was amazed that such accommodation even existed. We were also impressed by the care and attention our hosts put into making our stay perfect.

My partner and I stayed in the apartment along with our 5 year old and six month old baby. The flat was fantastic and catered for all our needs. A cot, bedding, changing mat and towel were provided which made our stay a lot easier as we didn't need to pack so much for the baby. The flat was warm and clean and very spacious. Every detail has been thought of and Moira and Eric went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.
The apartment is located two minutes walk from the castle and a short walk from Princes Street and the bus routes. Its a great location to explore the sites from and practically on the Royal Mile.
The apartment is a traditional tenement building and therefore guests should expect that there will be a staircase to climb to get to the flat. We carried the buggy up and down without any great hassle.
We would highly recommend the apartment to anyone thinking of a trip to Edinburgh, especially if you have a young family and require facilities for them.

My husband and I stayed at the Apartment by Castle over Christmas 2013. It was my husband’s first trip to Edinburgh, and my last visit was over 25 years ago. Moira met us just as we arrived from London, and had the kettle on for tea to warm us up on the brisk winter day. She showed us the many welcome features of the apartment and delighted us with a gift basket of food so we wouldn’t have to rush to the grocery store. The location is superb – a very quick walk to Princes Street, and the view at night with the Castle lit up is breathtaking.

The apartment is very warm and welcoming. The wonderful living room with deep Chesterfields is very inviting after a long day of trekking around the city. You can cook up a great meal in the efficient kitchen with fresh ingredients from the nearby grocers, or relax with a nice drink after a dinner out at one of the numerous wonderful restaurants throughout the neighborhood. There are many board games to entertain children as well as adults if the weather is too nasty to venture outside, and it always felt spacious, even with 4 or 5 people present.

This felt like being at home for us and was much more enjoyable than a hotel experience. We’ll be back in June for another visit to Scotland and this is definitely where we will stay.

Where to start! First the location is perfect. An amazing view of the castle as well as other parts of
Edinburgh...the Grassmarket, George Heriot's, etc. Its location is great for access to the castle, the Royal Mile, the Grassmarket and many restaurants. The apartment itself is very well maintained and has all the comforts of home. Very spacious especially after our flat in London. The laundry and kitchen came in very handy. Eric and Moira have done a beautiful job restoring its historic beauty. And speaking of Eric and Moira, their service was top-notch. Their communication and suggestions were thorough and helpful. If we get back to Edinburgh, we would definitely stay here again! If we brought our 7-year old son, it would be perfect for him.

Each time we've traveled to Scotland, we always mix our types of accommodations: a little B&B, a hotel or two and self-catering. Believe me, not all self-catering hosts are as gracious and thoughtful as Moira and Eric Bowman. Besides the attention to detail they lavished on the refurbishment of the property at 16/4 Johnston Terrace, there is the absolutely complete collection of amenities within the unit: from oven mitts to wired and wireless networking. Top that off with the attention we received while scheduling our visit and after booking as well. This "concierge" service was very much appreciated. And, of course, there is the apartment itself: warm, cozy, tasteful and about as well located as anything in Edinburgh can be. We've stayed in the 16/4 twice now and we came back the second time because our experience with other self-catering in Edinburgh was simply no where near as good. Edinburgh is a special place whether you're attracted to the pageantry, the arts, the heritage or the history and this comfortable Johnston Terrace flat puts you in a spot that any of that is an easy walk up, down or over.
