I loved my one night stay at the centrally located Castle View Guest House. Our triple room was HUGE and spotlessly clean, with three double beds, 2 floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of clothes storage and a dressing table. The reasonable price included several delicious breakfast options. And it is not called Castle View for no reason, you do indeed have a...

On arrival was asked if I had a car. When I replied "yes" he replied ... you must be rich. With no car parking onsite I was advised I could park around the corner for £3.50 per hour. If I chose to move my car at 8.30am to a location 10 min away it would be £12 per day. After...

Our first trip to Edinburgh, the Castle View Guest house could not be more convenient for walking the city. There are a lot of stairs and no lift, so be warned. That said, the service and welcome are without fault, the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed and the breakfast will set you up well for the day. Would...

We are here at Castle View GH for several days. It was welcoming as always. It was great to meet Magic, who helped us with several things. Our room is spacious, well-appointed, and very clean. The breakfasts are delicious, lots of options. Great staff. The proximity to sights, shopping, restaurants, hop on hop off bus cannot be beat. Be sure...

18 of us stayed here for 2 nights, 28th and 29th April 2017 as a hen do group. Our rooms were comfortable with excellent en suite shower rooms, drink making facilities and hairdryer. An added bonus was that breakfast was included. Be aware that there is no lift. My room, shared by 2 others, was on the top floor which...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
