    Location overlooking castle right next to Princes St but in a street that was not noisy. Big comfortable room with great view in bay window. Breakfast

    Street parking expensive 2 pound per hour but easy to find so best to leave the car behind. Hotel is on 3rd floor with no lift.

    1)no lift - though I understand its becouse of historical building. 2)I chose this guest house since we were 3 adults and the guesthouse has family room. I thought I had booked a 3 beds room but I found 1 of them was just a sofa bed and it was not properly made. I was told that they expected us to use just 2 double beds thats why they didnt make an additional bed. This really disappointed me...I booked the family room for us to stay confortably with 3 separate beds but they didnt understand it and even didnt ask us how we wanted to use the room. so poor... 3)heating system didnt work

    The staff was absolutely fantastic, really helpful and friendly. The location is great, just opposite the castle, and value for money is excellent.

    Superb

    The location was perfect as well as the comfort that castle view guest house provided me with Continental breakfast could be better - i expected a better choise of different cheeses and not the prepacked sort of choice - if i had known this in advance I would have prefered an english breakfast with eggs etc .. Room was OK but a bit tight

    Friendly staff, no major issues for the b&b - I surely will come back when I need accomodation in Edinburgh and will recommend this to friends ; ) Thanks for the good service and for sure for being a clean B&B ; ) Thanks

    The service was excellent throughout, annoyingly I cant remember the guys name that I spoke to throughout my stay but he went above and beyond to meet my requests and answer my questions and I was really grateful for that, particularly as I was a young(ish) woman travelling alone and I was conscious of this. The room had everything I could have needed and more, I had the single room with private bathroom which was also excellent, I was sceptical of this at first but it was absolutely fine and id definately book the room again without hesitation. I look forward to a return visit!

    Those stairs! Wow, id read the reviews and knew about them but I was still shocked, not a place ill be recommending to an elderly relative or someone with a lot of luggage.

    We stayed in the family room, from there the view was really nice, castle view, and the room was big enough to 4people.

    The room is on the 4th floor and there was no lift, it was really hard to go up and down with children and bags. And the worst thing is that in the room when we used the water( toilet, shower...) , the motor? made a terrible sound, it was so noisy that we were claimed from the neighbor guests, we all couldnt take the shower.

    The cleanliness of the room, our stay was very short but facilities were good. The breakfast was excellent and we did not have to wait too long which was great because we were in a hurry.
