[The Apartment] was amazing! Everything that was needed was there! The apartment was superb! The attention to detail in every room was brilliant. The whole apartment was a joy to stay in! I wouldn't hesitate to go back there. Every little thing we needed was available, from a Bugatti kettle to a spurtle for our porridge!
The Edinburgh Address is a very slick operation with an amazing personal touch. From the moment I booked to leaving the apartment, the service offered by the staff was superb. Friendly, efficient, courteous staff. Thank you ever so much for making our booking and stay so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!

"I would highly recommend staying in this apartment when looking for an Edinburgh base. From the moment I made the initial enquiry with The Edinburgh Address to leaving 3 nights later I could not have asked for more helpful, courteous, caring assistance. This is a very slick operation with a very personal touch. All the staff are superb. I cannot find fault with anything at all. The apartment was sumptuous, tastefully decorated to a very high standard, and the facilities were amazing! The kitchen was very well stocked from a spurtle to stir your porridge with to a Bugatti kettle and plenty of tea and coffee. The apartment was spotless, with complimentary Orla Kiely bath accessories in all 3 bathrooms. The apartment is so well placed for accessing the castle, Princes Street and other attractions in Edinburgh. This apartment has clearly had a lot of hard work put into making it a high quality rental. I would not hesitate to return and hope to do so soon! Absolutely brilliant service all round! Thank you Edinburgh address for all the hard work!"

This was a fabulous accommodation. There were 4 of us and we have all rented on Homeaway many times. This was the best value for the money that any of us have experienced. The unit was flawless and spotless, and very well decorated and located.
Perfect service. We could not locate the password for the wifi and two of your reps, Rachel and Kirstie, came to our unit within 5 minutes. In addition to ensuring we were on the internet, they were full of information about Edinburgh and St. Andrews.
Very good value.

The accommodation was simply superb, the location, decor and size were simply faultless and most definitely the best apartment I have had the pleasure of staying at for a very long time.
I cant see how this property can be improved, it was superb.
Service from booking till receiving my deposit back was excellent. Erin and her colleague were very helpful from the outset. Thank you..

The location right across from the Edinburgh Castle was breathtaking time and again. We seemed to be just minutes away from everything. The remodeled apartment was very chic and up to date with every ammenity we needed. Welcome basket was so thoughtful, we enjoyed every item! [The Edinburgh Address was a] very professional team regarding our reservation, payments and deposit. Local representative stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed and got settled in. Easy system to obtain keys and gain entry. Cab stopped at our door!

Accommodation was brilliant. We were extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. 3 bathrooms was fantastic as there were 6 ladies in our party. The house was immaculately clean and the location was excellent for both shopping and sightseeing.
We took advantage of the "extras" provided by the company and hired a chef and a waitress for dinner on Saturday night. This really enhanced our stay and both Steven and June made us feel totally at ease and completely spoiled. Steven cooked one of the best dinners I have had in Edinburgh and June never let the glasses get empty. Everything was left immaculately clean and tidy at the end of the night and the whole experience was worth every penny! Everyone I have had contact with to book this weekend break has been courteous and helpful and I would definitely recommend this apartment and The Edinburgh Address Company to friends.

I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in the apartment at 9A Castle Terrace. We found the apartment to be very centrally located, clean and well equipped. This made the time we spent in Edinburgh very comfortable. Thank you for the thoughtful gift of champagne which we enjoyed with our New Year dinner. Thank you, also, for allowing us to enter the apartment before the usual time. We will recommend your services to our family and friends.

Just wanted to say what a fantastic weekend we had at 9a Castle Terrace - the apartment was beautiful, comfy, clean, located perfectly... can't fault anything at all! The bed situation worked out fine in the end - the double hadn't been made up as a twin so we were all happy!
Many thanks again, and hopefully I will have the opportunity to stay there (or one of your other apartments) again.

[The accommodation represents] very good value.
I honestly cannot think of anything I found lacking in the apartment or the accommodation. Everything was perfect, truly.
The apartment is a dream. Spacious, wonderful, with all one could wish for a self-catered apartment. Big rooms, two ensuite bathrooms and a main one, comfortable living-room with fireplace, also great heating, lovely decoration, well-appointed kitchen and ideal location. We were so cozy that one day we decided to spend our time in-house, it was snowing outside and it felt great to cook an easy meal and simply stretch out by the fireplace. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and it deserves to be enjoyed through a fantastic property such as Castle Terrace 9a Apartment.
We had not booked the Castle Terrace apartment but another one which presented some logistic problems that could not be fixed easily due to the extreme weather conditions (Dec. 2010, heavy snow in Edinburgh). The Edinburgh Address team moved swiftly and coordinated our relocation to Castle Terrace 9a, and did not leave until they made sure we were satisfied with the arrangements. Kudos for the fine organization, I will certainly book again through them.

"This is one of the best places I have stayed. The rooms were spacious, the flat was clean and the location was the best ever. We all loved the look of the flats as well, super hip and cool!!! The ability of seeing the castle right out of the window and just a minute or two walk to Princess St./Rose St. and the Saturday Farmers Market.
Everyone was super nice and accommodating to all of us, even with our annoying questions!!!"

Just a wee note to thank you for an excellent stay at 9a Castle Terrace last week. We had a great time, everyone loved the flat, and even the weather was great (after the first weekend anyway!). I’ve already sent a load of people the link to the flat so hopefully that will get a few more enquiries coming your way. It was a great week – thanks again and thanks to Anne Marie for the friendly welcome. Andrew Merrett

I just wanted to write you a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my stay in Castle Terrace last week.
The apartment was absolutely beautiful and it was lovely to have so much more space than a regular hotel room and also to have all the fantastic facilities. Your professional and friendly care and attention at every stage was also very greatly appreciated.
I have already shown a number of friends and colleagues your website and will certainly recommend you if any of them are planning trips to Edinburgh.
We will also keep you very much in mind for any future stays.
Many thanks again for everything.
