“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

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.

A beautiful, luxurious and spacious place to stay. The place was well equipped with well though of needful items. Family was very helpful and provided quick response to any query we had before our Journey as well as during our stay.

Area information is provided as you enter the place and don't need to spend time on Google to search what to do or what to eat.

Its close to bus stop where you can get 41 to city or if you walk a little more choice for buses is more. Shops, groceries and restaurant are nearby.

Would recommend if you like some peace and luxury stay.

“An excellent base for Edinburgh and surrounding area”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

This must be one of the best self catering places we've ever stayed in. From the initial welcome from both Fiona and Al, the excellent accommodation and equipment, the welcome pack, the outstanding cleanliness - all was just brilliant. The property is spacious and the use of the garden is a bonus when the weather is good. Situated on the western side of the city means it's easy to drive out to the Forth Bridges for anyone wanting to explore the area around Edinburgh, and the bus stop a few minutes walk away allows you to get into the city without having to worry about finding parking space.

“Great as always”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a great place to stay within easy reach of Edinburgh town centre by using the Bus service 41 if you wish its only £1.50 each way and saves all the hassle of parking.
The Annex is immaculately kept and has a very comfortable bed and all the common amenities.
One of the best places we have stayed for convenience and comfort. Its a home from home.

“Very nice”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very clean and spacious. Well appointed. Good parking. Didn't spend too much time in the unit during the day as was at the Fringe, but there is a lovely garden to relax in.

Property is a bit of a hike from the city centre (about an hour walk or a 15 to 20 minute bus ride), but is convenient to the airport. Bus service to the city centre is very convenient.
