      The staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Breakfast was great - choice, qua;ity, and speed of service greatThere was a problem with the heating during our stay which also hit the hot water on our first day.The staff on duty dealt with the issue promptly. A heater was left switched on in our room so it would be warm when we came back and the hot water was restored the next day. We were offered access to an alternative shower in the meantime.It was a blip which was dealt with promptly and efficiently.

      Its location, excellent staff, we felt home from home. We loved it and got a real feel for Edinburgh. We definitely will stay there again.1. We waited for 30 minutes just for the guy at the reception to come down to see us.2. The window in the room can't be closed, so we had to close the curtain and ignore the street sound.3. The room is so strange. Although it is spacious, it does not feel like a proper guest room. It has a spacious hostel feeling.

      I liked that the guest house was in town and close to restaurants and Edinburgh Castle and Old Town. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. I liked the sunny breakfast room. I liked the fact that this was an historic building. The night manager was extremely helpful in ordering a cab for our early morning trip to the airport, he also set out an early continental breakfast for us, and also helped me check in at the airport and printed out our boarding passes. Very helpful person. I believe his name was Magic. The day manager - Martin - did carry our luggage up to the 5th floor. That was nice.Some of the breakfast food was good. I liked the ham and cheese and scrambled eggs.

Oneepisode of slow draining shower (out of 10 showers taken in our stay)Loud pump sounds when using the sink, ushower or toilet (plumbing isapparently modernized with a pump feature). There is no elevator.Athough this did not bother us, I could see this fact a problem for some

      it was situated perfectly in the heart of the shops and the castle. as we were going to a concert at the castle it was ideal. it had quite a few stairs to get to the reception area though, and was pretty tired after carrying a suitcase to the top . the breakfast was lovely and all in all was a nice place. would stay there again .The fire alarm went on one morning. And wifi was sometime down.

      Great location and lovely, spacious room. Comfy beds.Manager was very helpful.I think the only thing I didn't really like was the quality of the food at breakfast. We had just come from a bed and breakfast on our trip that had fresh pastries and home made jams. And real butter. The crossants were dry and the jelly was flavorless.

      The room was really spacious and the location was ideal.Breakfast was pretty good too.Really small room for us! We can hardly walk inside the room after putiing our lugauage. It made us not feeling relaxing! At early morning, noise from downstairs ( may be collecting rubbish) woke us up. Our room cannot see the castle but only the back alley. Therefore, I thought the high price is not worthy.

      Famous author's house -- historic property.Wonderful big bedroom with plenty of room for kids and larger family, which is rare to find.Modern bathroom.Great location near Edinburgh castle and city.Restaurants right next door.It was quite noisy due to being on a busy street.

      Clean and convenient for the fringe, staff helpful and efficientReally small room for us! We can hardly walk inside the room after putiing our lugauage. It made us not feeling relaxing! At early morning, noise from downstairs ( may be collecting rubbish) woke us up. Our room cannot see the castle but only the back alley. Therefore, I thought the high price is not worthy.

      Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Location was excellent, with stunning outlook of the castle from the street and from the bay window on the dining room. Our room for us and our adult son was large and well appointed.Breakfast was plentiful and of a satisfactory standard.No warning of the many stairs + hard to find reception.

      I appreciated the friendliness of staff and the closeness to city attractions.1. We waited for 30 minutes just for the guy at the reception to come down to see us.2. The window in the room can't be closed, so we had to close the curtain and ignore the street sound.3. The room is so strange. Although it is spacious, it does not feel like a proper guest room. It has a spacious hostel feeling.

We had just come from a bed and breakfast on our trip that had fresh pastries and home made jams. And real butter. The crossants were dry and the jelly was flavorless.

Oneepisode of slow draining shower (out of 10 showers taken in our stay)Loud pump sounds when using the sink, ushower or toilet (plumbing isapparently modernized with a pump feature). There is no elevator.Athough this did not bother us, I could see this fact a problem for some

      I liked that the guest house was in town and close to restaurants and Edinburgh Castle and Old Town. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. I liked the sunny breakfast room. I liked the fact that this was an historic building. The night manager was extremely helpful in ordering a cab for our early morning trip to the airport, he also set out an early continental breakfast for us, and also helped me check in at the airport and printed out our boarding passes. Very helpful person. I believe his name was Magic. The day manager - Martin - did carry our luggage up to the 5th floor. That was nice.Some of the breakfast food was good. I liked the ham and cheese and scrambled eggs.Our Chioice of room was wrong, hence we could not get the comfrotwhat we were looking for from the bathroom and its accessories.

      I wouldnt stay here again,there was no reception area and initially when I booked I thought it was a hotel but its a guesthouse.There was no view from the window only down to a yard underneath.When you enter the building its just cold stairs in front of you, its just not nice at all,I would have left straight away but I would have lost my deposit and as I was with my niece and we would not spending any time in the place I braved it out.The food was fine but apart from that its a real cold building and the noise from the shower and every time you flush the toilet was outrageous.The wind was howling through the bedroom door and there was no phone in the room which made me feel real uneasy.I wouldnt recommend it at all unless your very young and passing through for a night.

      Castle View Guest House rooms were spacious. Staff is very friendly andhelpful. Location of the hotel is central and easily accessed. Very muchin the heart of city's main shopping area. Restaurants are near.Breakfast served by the hotel was also very good.Previous guest's hair in room -- long dark hair. Room with its single bed against the felt cramped. It was a surprise to find out that the bathroom was along the landing i.e. no unsuite.
