Customer Reviews of Castle Wynd Penthouse, Central Edinburgh - Sleeps 4

We walked in the flat and saw the office and one bedroom and the bath (modern and lavish)with large walk in shower, and thought yes, this is very nice... We went in the second bedroom and saw the bath (roomy, lavish and modern) and then saw the view of the castle. Absolutely beautiful! We went up the stairs to the kitchen and family room and it was like going home. It was so warm and inviting. We walked out on the paito. All I can say is fantastic. The flat had everything you could need. The bath accessories and towels were very special. Something you don't see usually in a rental flat. The location is so close to everything. We loved the Grassmarket area with the places to sit outside on a beautiful day.

- B. Pace, Atlanta, GA - Nov-2010

Tastefully decorated apartment with a terrace looking straight up at Edinburgh Castle. 2 lovely bathrooms and 3 very comfortable bedrooms. Lounge/kitchen/dining area on floor above to maximise the view of the Castle. Location in Grassmarket meant that we could walk everywhere and easily return to the apartment via supermarkets if we weren't sampling the wide range of cafes and restaurants near by.
