“Perfect apartment from generous hosts”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed at the Annexe from July 7 to July 21 2017.
The good standard in the apartment was in exactly the same way as in the description on the website and had every possible utensil we needed for our stay.
At the arrival we received a warm welcome from Fiona.
We were especially pleased with the beautiful fresh flower arrangement in the entrance hall that Fiona had arranged for us.
Fiona and Al were generous hosts during our entire stay in Edinburgh. They took very good care of us during our stay, were always helpful answering our questions and giving us helpful recommendations and advices for our activities in Edinburgh.
We really enjoyed our time in Scotland. The Annexe had everything we could possibly need around our activities in the area of Edinburgh.
We want to revisit to Edinburgh next year and will for sure try to get the same lovely apartment.
Best wishes from Jule and Frank, Dresden, Germany

“Great option for staying in Edinburgh area”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We recently stayed in the Annexe for 4 nights. Fiona and Al are great hosts and have truly provided everything you need for a comfortable stay. While we were there, Edinburgh experienced an unusual "heat wave", 30C+. I will say that the Annexe stays very comfortable. You can easily open windows for air, but Fiona also had a stand-up fan in the closet in the unit. Perfect! This is indicative of the attention to detail that has been put into this rental unit. The unit was a great size with a nice-sized bedroom, bathroom, hall and open kitchen/dining/living room which is quite spacious. Plenty of light in the unit. It is recently, tastefully renovated. A perfect cottage just outside the city center. (Easily obtainable on a direct bus from just down the private street/drive. There is also ample parking area on the property.
Seriously though, Fiona has thought of everything that you will need for your stay! There are breakfast basics in the refrigerator for you! Their village is well equipped with a great pub in walking distance and a grocery market for any cooking needs, if you want to save money from eating out in restaurants. Location is further convenient for trips "further afield". We easily drove to many out-of-town locations, such as Rosslyn Chapel. The Annexe is convenient to major arteries in and out of town. If you are concerned about not being "right in" the city center, then consider the pros and cons. This is a personal unit (part of someone's home which is on site), but it is private with a separate entrance and Fiona and Al do everything to NOT bother you during your stay! (However on site for any potential needs) You also have a detailed book in the unit with travel/transportation information and multiple brochures regarding things to do, restaurants, etc. It is off the main road, and very quiet and relaxing. The bus comes regularly as decent intervals, and quite economical.
I will finish by saying that Scotland (Edinburgh) has so many wonderful things to visit/see/do, that I am planning to be back. My first option will be to contact the Annexe for availability and plan my itinerary around that! Scotland is not only a beautiful country to visit, they have truly wonderful people. We met several people during our recent trip who are truly genuine, friendly, helpful and kind which includes Fiona and Al.

“Fantastic Accommodation and location”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What fantastic accommodation.
The Annex is a really great place to stay. It manages to be spacious , comfortable, well equipped and homely and all without compromising on quality.
Although we were out for much of the day time we felt that we wanted to be indoors in the evening benefiting from what The Annex offers.
Fiona and Alistair are also very helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome and at home.
We will definitely book The Annex again the next time we stay in or anywhere near Edinburgh.

“Annexe Retreat”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The Annexe was the perfect place to rest during our stay at Edinburgh. After visiting my husband's family in the UK, we were looking forward to a little downtime. Fiona's home was perfect for us. I felt like we were locals living in the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Fiona provided us with fruit, a loaf of bread, eggs and milk and fresh bottled water in the refrigerator. There were also little jams for the toast as well. It was enough for breakfast for us for the three days. She showed us around the place and was very polite and hospitable. It's clear she takes pride in her place, there was an iron and ironing board, outlet converters for different countries wall plugs, board games, DVDs, etc.

The bed was probably the best bed I've ever slept in, in rental accommodation. It was so fluffy and perfect, I slept like a rock. I told my husband, I wanted to live in Fiona's apartment, haha!

Thank you Fiona, our stay was perfect.
