Stayed 2 nights in June 2017
Great location!”
Location couldn't be more convenient! It's a few steps away from Princes Street which has the main shops and some sights of the city. Do take note that since this is a preserved building, they do not have lifts. So, if you're okay with that, it will be a great stay.

Cosy guest & perfectly located guest house”
We had a pleasant stay at Castle View Guest House, over the weekend. We booked the family room which is really comfortable and spacious. The full Scottish breakfast was very good. The location is also top: close to Princes Street bus and tramway stops and offers a view on the castle. We will come back for sure!

Michael from Canada

Stayed 2 nights in April 2017
Very badly presented in it brochures ”
Staff have no idea when asked could we park outside they had no idea. Parked to take up luggage and got parking ticket. If you can see the well hidden signs good luck to you. Five or more flights of steps they to room , forget it. Staff couldn't help with anything and had a "couldn't care less about us" attitude, manner and demeanor certainly knew nothing about Edinburgh or Scotland Paid for two nights. Left after one. Gave back key to one person and said we were leaving to reception and no one showed any sign of interest. As for name and expection Castle view should be "castle view if you bend down on kneees in breakfast room and look through one window" don't believe all your read

Great spot just away from hustle and bustle”
Location was perfect, just after all the main shopping areas but convenient enough to do everything. The room we stayed in was clean and fine for the 3 of us that stayed there. Only thing, there is no lift access so each time we had to climb to the top floor, so it could be difficult access for some people. Other than that, brekkie was lovely and there's plenty of food around the area too. Good place to stay at a decent price.
