“We LOVED "The Snug"!”

Three friends from around the world came together to see Edinburgh, the Military Tattoo and the many presentations of The Fringe. The Castle Snug was a PERFECT location and setup for our long weekend. Edinburgh is at your door as soon as you open it! The weather was challenging and we would be very happy to grab some snacks, a bottle of wine and stay in. The Snug was clean, beautifully decorated/furnished and considering location in the center of everything, quieter than expected. The price was expected for time of year and location. Owner was very responsive to every inquiry prior to arrival and during our stay. Staying at The Castle Snug was one of the things that made our holiday special! We really enjoyed this property and would highly recommend it!!

“Gorgeous little place in perfect spot”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Fabulous spot for sightseeing, restaurants etc. as this place is just off the Royal Mile. Really well equipped with lovely bread, biscuits, milk, juice, butter, jam left for us on arrival. The nearby photo illusion attraction was loved by the teenager in our group, Holyrood is beautiful as is the current fashion of tudor times exhibition that is there at the moment. Museum of Scotland is fabulous and we rounded this off with tea at the Tower restaurant above and at £18.00 each it was well worth it, beautiful sandwiches and cakes, lovely service and a great view of the city.

“WOW!! What a unique place!!”

Castle Snug was amazing!! Photos are very representative of the property. In spite of the age of the building, the apartment had modern amenities, such as washer, dishwasher, TV. Location is unbeatable, and instructions for access were very convenient. I stayed with my 2 teenage daughters, and they loved the loft bed. This was such a unique apartment- I'm sure we will remember our stay in the Castle Snug whenever we think of Edinburgh!! Thanks!!!

“Perfect!!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We booked two nights at the Castle Snug to round off a road trip right round Scotland and we couldn't have picked a more wonderful place to wind down. The Castle Snug was even better than we were expecting. It could not be more central (down a little close off the Royal Mile) and it literally 4 mins walk from the Castle but is a haven of peace and quiet - even with the pub next door/right outside we found that it did not suffer with too much noise - we stayed on a Friday and a Saturday and although there was the usual sound of merriment it did not disturb us particularly. On entering there was a resounding WOW from myself and my husband and our nine year old daughter who immediately claimed the loft bed (the most comfy bed in the world!) and it served as her very own little hidey hole - my husband and I slept in the awesome 'hidden bed'. This apartment is beautifully decorated with original architectural features, huge walls and all home comforts. My daughter said she'd happily stay there forever (as did my husband!) and i completely agreed! If you are into your history or of the gothic persuasion (as we are) you will adore this exquisite bolt-hole in the centre of the beautiful city of Edinburgh! We can't wait to return!
