“A little gem of a place, near to town but so quiet too.”
Reviewed 13 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This was the first time we'd tried anything other than a budget hotel, it was a birthday weekend and we wanted something nicer but still with an eye on the budget and The Annexe fitted the bill.

We found it easy to find by car with the owners map and instructions and there was ample parking out front. The owner Fiona met us personally and gave us the fullest of tours around The Annexe - from a cafetiere in the kitchen, flowers in the lounge and wind up torches in the hallway, they've thought of everything.

We found the local information pack was very comprehensive, and made finding buses in and out of Edinburgh a doddle. Having driven from Bristol it was lovely to let someone else do the driving, and so much cheaper than our local buses too. We were also very appreciative of the owners suggestion for Sunday, the End of Festival Fireworks were amazing.

The local area has takeaway's, a lovely pub with great food (and music when we were there) and a few small shops, all within a few minutes walk.

The only downside was having to leave, getting home after such an amazing stay is always a bit of an anti climax. I'm looking forward to visiting again next year.

“I wanted to move here!”

The apartment was wonderful, very peaceful location. It was a little hard to find, but once we found it we were ecstatic. It was clean, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. We felt so at home, and even had a friendly dog and cat to visit with.

It was very easy to get to the bus and to Edinburgh, and then to come back to such a peaceful place. Additionally the neighborhood has a large supermarket, a fish and chips, chinese food, a pub, bank, and exceptional Indian food take out.

You are located next to a elementary school, but it was not in session so very quiet in summer.

The owner is very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was her mother's before she had to go to care facility and has been completely remodeled. Every appliance and TV as well as wi-fi.

If I had more than 5 stars I would give them to the Annexe. We traveled for 2 1/2 months in Europe and this was one of our favorite accomodations.
