          Recommendation for travelers ”

          I stayed during 3 days. There is no lift, so it could be difficult to up & down. Also, the photos on the website are looked better than real room which mean that real room is smaller. However, Castle view guest house has many advantages for travelers. The guest house is very clean and located in the central area. Thus, you can go to Edinburgh castle, Calton hill and other places within 15 minutes on foot. Around the guest house, there are lots of restaurants such as Italian, Chinese, Japanese and so on. The host is very kind who gave me useful information for tour. I would like to recommend this guest house to travelers.

          Excellent”

          Castle View Guest House was in a perfect location for views of the castle and for shopping along Princess St. It was also located within a comfortable walk of Waverly train station and the Hop On Hop off buses at Waverly bridge. The building itself is a heritage building with lovely Georgian architectural features BUT it has tons of stairs to climb!! It is not suitable for persons with disabilities or some seniors! The entrance is unimpressive with laundry bags and a vacuum cleaner to greet you. When you finally reach reception (up many stairs) it is basically a closet which is closed much of the time. Our room was lovely, large and very clean (no complaints there) and breakfast was delicious and plentiful (but up on the top floor!). Staff were friendly and courteous. Would I stay there again? As a senior (only getting older), the next time I was in Edinburgh I would likely not stay there...only because of the stairs!

          Great guest house!!”

          Me and my friend stayed at Castle View Guest House on 16th December and we loved it. The staff was really helpful and friendly. When our flight was delayed and we arrived quite late, they were waiting for us. They gave us directions on where to go, close by things to see, etc. Breakfast in the morning was really nice and yummy and again staff was friendly and polite, always with a smile ready. The only downside I would say are the beds, the mattresses weren't good at all and you could feel all the springs in the mattress. Would be nice if they put some kind of topper to stop this problem. All in all we loved it and I'll be back for sure next time I'm in Edinburgh

          Best accommodation for travelers”

          Castle view guest house is located in the central of Edinburgh which is only 30 mins by bus from the airport. Additionally, every interesting places are very close to the guest house. It takes only 15 mins on foot to go such as Edinburgh castle or Calton hill. The host is very friendly and nice guy who will really welcome to you.

          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!
