The hostess was most kind to the guests we sent to the Castle Wynd apartment We find that a kind local person who is willing to help is as important as the apartment condition.

What more could you want? The Castle Wynd South Apartment is right in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town and city centre, with the Castle looming just over your shoulder and the Royal Mile and Grassmarket practically on your doorstep. This delightful one bedroom property sleeps up to four guests, and is on the first floor.
The open plan kitchen and living area features warm tones and cosy furnishings, and excellent entertainment facilities with large flat screen Apple TV and WiFi. The generous, fully fitted kitchen is equipped with all the mod cons you could hope for, including microwave and washing machine. It also benefits from a good-sized breakfasting table, and contemporary design. The sofa also folds out into a double sofa bed for a 3rd and 4th guest.
You can put your feet up and have a sound night’s sleep in the light and airy master bedroom, with a lovely double bed, and large bright windows. The modern family bathroom with walk in shower completes this fantastic home from home.
The local area is thriving, and packed full of cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions. However if you need access to the rest of the city, many frequent bus routes run from the nearby George IV Bridge and Lothian Road. Edinburgh Waverley train station (also the airport bus terminal) is just a ten-minute walk away.
A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.
The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.
