Guestbook reviews

Friends and I stayed at The Mapmaker's House and found it an ideal venue for our
reunion. It is ideally situated on a quiet residential road very close to a bus
route and a small supermarket. There are also many excellent restaurants nearby, some
within walking distance. The centre of Edinburgh can be reached easily by bus but to walk is
much more enjoyable and passes many interesting, historical areas and sites. The apartment
is very light and airy, beautifully furnished to a very high standard and very well equipped and has
the added advantage of secure private parking. Our stay at the House was a great success
and enjoyed by all and we highly recommend this property but possibly not for those who find
stairs a problem."

Thank you very much for all the help you gave us at The Edinburgh Address and for the return in
full of the breakage deposit. The Apartment was an ideal base for our reunion and having the
car with us meant we were able to travel further afield rather than just focus on the centre of
