Fantastic modern and cozy apartment!
We stayed at the Annandale Apartment during our honeymoon in June, 2014 and it was truly the best place that we stayed throughout our European trip. Liz was so accommodating and thorough- both leading up to the trip via email and then in person when we arrived. The apartment was beautifully kept and had more than what we needed. Liz even left a little basket of goodies in the bathroom and kitchen for us, which was much appreciated. She also provided us with some recommendations on what to do while we were in town, and they were great suggestions.
We had great sleeps, were able to do some laundry and cooked a couple of meals during our stay- the perfect home away from home. We had a car for a portion of our stay and the parking was easy, free and convenient. I'm honestly not sure what more you could want from a vacation rental- I don't often give a 'perfect' review but it was literally perfect! Wouldn't change a thing! Read more

Best apartment I have been to
Even though I had booked just for 4 nights ,the service we received was impeccable. Check-in time was 4pm but she allowed me at 11.00 which was excellent for me as I was having kids. She had prepared sofa bed for me on my request which was very helpful.There was DVD for kids which they enjoyed very much. There was each and everything which you require for day to day life. It was like our second home. She was very sweet and happy to help, heated the entire place and therefore we found the apartment all cosy and ready for us. The apartment is very modern and cosy and immediately we felt at home. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to have a very central place, since we walked it no problem to arthur's seat and princes street. The place is also very well kept and as soon as you arrive there is everything you need up to toiletries, shower cap and also milk, cookies, cereal, tea and coffee.
a big thanks goes to Liz for her warm welcome
If i return in Edinburgh, i return here.

A lovely flat in a great location
We stayed for 10 days in the flat. It is a great location; only a short walk to Princes St, with plenty of options for restaurants, shops, pubs, buses, etc. all very close by. The flat was very clean, warm and quite modern, but only really suitable for two adults. Liz is most helpful and responded quickly when contacted. This is our 5th visit to Edinburgh and we would highly recommend this flat for a couple. Regards Ross & Judy Read more

Had an Excellent Experience!
Liz welcomed me to the unit and took the time to show me around and how everything worked in the flat and even pointed out a few places for me to visit. The flat was very clean and well kept with everything you might need during your stay. It was in walking distance to all the attractions and had parking off street for the car. The best thing is that i was allowed to bring my pet who loves to travel. I had a wonderful experience in Edinburgh and would recommend liz and the flat to anyone! Read more

Flawless Stay with Every Possible Convenience Provided!
This was my best apart-hotel experience ever. Liz stayed in constant contact with us leading up to our arrival and even rang a few minutes after our train arrived to make sure we arrived safely. She met us at the property and we found an immaculate and luxurious abode. There were great touches everywhere: wi-fi/tea/coffee/milk/shampoo/hair dryer/great linens/tea towels - quite simply, turn-key! I also manage a property and I learned a few things from Liz. Fabulous 3 nights away. Read more

Returned for a second time to stay in this fabulous apartment, located right in the city centre but in a safe, secure residential area. Shops, theatres, and highly recommended restaurants a few minutes walk away...
The apartment itself is outstanding...clean, fully equipped and beautifully decorated...a true home from home!!
Liz was as kind and generous as last year, she could not have done anymore for us during our stay and made herself constantly available throughout our holiday should we need any help...a very wonderful lady.
To reflect how much we loved our stay we are booking our third stay in Edinburgh with Liz for next summer!!

Spotless, modern and well equipped apartment
Had a fab stay in the apartment for 3 nights with my wife and one year old. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and was pleased to find the flat absolutely spotless and beautifully presented.
The flat was extremely well equipped and had everything and more we could have needed for the trip, the breakfast basket was a really nice touch as well.
The location was great for us, quiet with only a short walk into the city centre and also with a small supermarket 2mins away which was handy.
If you are staying with a little one the flat does have a few glass surfaces (tables etc) but we took a couple of precautions and everything was fine!
Would recommend anyone to stay here.

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for 4 nights and everything was just perfect. The apartment is truly immaculate, really spacious, very comfortable, quite stylish, sunny, warm, and extremely convenient to shops and sights. The area is really safe with many delightful shops nearby. We are avid walkers and were able to walk from the apartment to all the sights in Edinburgh including Dean Village and beyond.

Excellent apartment in the centre of Edinburgh
I had the pleasure to live for five weeks in annadale apartment while studying a course at QM University. Liz gave me a very friendly welcome and introduced me to the flat. Liz is a very sympathetic, friendly and attentive host. If there was a problem, I could have called here for help anytime. The apartment is perfectly located close to the centre, shops, to restaurants and public transport. All within walking distance. The apartment truly deserves the 4*. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need, including a dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom is modern with bath tube and shower. In the living room you can really make yourself comfortable on the couch, watching TV, a video or reading a book. There are some travel guides and information about Edinburgh available.

Beautiful modern apartment within striking distance of Edinburgh
This is a lovely apartment! Tastefully decorated and very spacious! Nice and clean too! It is only a 10 minute walk into the centre of Edinburgh, which was a real bonus! No cathcing buses into the centre and then being stuck there all day if we wanted to eat out that night - we could just walk in, and when we needed a bit of a rest and re-coop, we coudl just walk back, rest up and then head out again for dinner! Wonderful Italian restuarant called "Taste of Itakly" 5 minute walk away! Gorgeous food and extreme value for money! The apartment has its own parking space which is an added bonus! The only downside of the apartment is that we found it was very hot, especially at night time, and we couldn't open the windows to cool it down because of the outside noise (which is shut out by the shutters when closed). We tried switching off the heaters, but it was still very hot. Could have been the thickness / tog of the duvet. Otherwise, we had a wonderful stay and the apartment was fabulous! Read more

Immaculate & central for everything.
Long weekend stay booked at last minute. Accommodation was immaculate and modern and had every facility you could want. Just walk-in, unpack and enjoy your stay. We ate out mostly but the kitchen was fully equipped with all appliances and loads of crockery and cookware. Liz met us and gave us loads of info on flat and tips on surrounding area. Great location, and Elm Row and Leith Walk is an absolute foodies delight. We had great weather and walked to Calton Hill and arthur's Seat. You can also easily walk from the apartment to the quieter streets of the New Town to reach Princes St etc. Great stay, thoroughly recommended. Read more

We stayed at annandale apartments for 3 days at the end of our holiday in Scotland. The apartment was extremely well equipped, very clean, roomy & very comfortable, and only about 10 minutes walk from Princes St. We had stayed at B&B;'s whilst driving around Scotland, so had accumulated alot of washing. The washing machine was invaluable. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. There was a welcome pack of milk, tea & coffee. If you wanted to utilise the cooking facilities in the apartment, a Tescos was just around the corner. We would love to return to Edinburgh and would definitely stay here again. Read more

Lovely conveniently located apartment.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Liz was ultra cooperative from day one in assisting with arranging and booking the stay and made us more than welcome on arrival.
The unit was very comfortably set up with everything needed for any stay.
It is located close - ten minutes walk - to numerous quality yet reasonably priced restaurants or there are many good shops nearby for purchasing quality fresh food for those on a budget.
If the walking mentioned is a problem a good bus system operates from just a few minutes walk away and central Waverley train and bus stations are close by. The bus company and train services information is easily accessed via their web sites.
We would love to return to beautiful Scotland one day and have would have no issues with recommending the apartment for an Edinburgh stay. Read more

We could not have picked a better place to stay in Edinburgh. The apartment was absolutely spotless and tastefully furnished. Liz was so helpful, telling us places to visit and places to eat. She left us a welcome basket and beautiful flowers. The apartment is situated well in the city, with everything in walking distance. We were only there for three nights so did not manage to see everything. When we return we will definitely stay at annandale again. Thank you Liz!

The location is very good too. it was easy to walk to the centre of town. And we found a couple of good restaurants nearby. All in all we couldn't have chosen better. Read more

Hi Lianne, Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am delighted to hear you had a very pleasant stay at Annandale apartment. I hope we will meet again on your next visit to Edinburgh. Kindest regards, Liz
Comfortable, clean and well equipped.
A very warm and hospitable welcome from Liz got our stay in Edinburgh off to a flying stsrt. The flat was very comfortably furnished and well equipped and soon felt like home. It was a little further from the city centre than we would have liked but still close to local amenities. Noise from the bus depot opposite was sometimes intrusive.
Overall though, very good accommodation. Read more

Apartment was comfortable and clean
We stayed (2 adults and 1 child)for a week in July and enjoyed our stay very much. We arrived early and it was no problem to drop our bags. The apartment was very clean and pleasant. The kitchen was very well equipped. The city centre was within walking distance and if you don't like walking there were plenty of buses. Read more

Edinburgh, Fringe and annandale apartments - three winners go to
Our very first trip to Edinburgh was made all the more special by Liz and her immaculate apartment at annandale Street, easily accessible by walk from Waverly Station. After a warm welcome and a quick tour of amenities, we were left on our own to take in just how clean and cozy the apartment is. It perfectly reflected the smooth booking process we had experienced few weeks before. Thank you again, Liz, for everything! We'll most definitely recommend you and the annandale apartment to any friend contemplating a trip to Scotland. Read more

It is well equipped in every way, including a welcome pack with tea, coffee, milk, cereals and fruit.It is really convenient, within walking distance of all the sights of Edinburgh.We were lucky to find this excellent accommodation and especially pleased we could book for three nights as most apartments have to be taken for a week during the Festival.

Roisin and Damien
Home from Home...Superb stay!!
We were welcomed at the steps of the apartment by the lovely Liz. We felt at home immediately, the apartment was of a modern design with a warm and cosy atmosphere.
Annandale apartment is based in a quiet residential area with shops and fantastic restaurants nearly. It is located within easy walking distance of all the main attractions in Edinburgh and on a main bus route into the city. Words can hardly express how much Liz and the apartment added to our stay...fantastic!! Read more

Well equipped apartment in perfect location
My husband and I (and our little chihuahua alfie) stayed here 30th July 2012 - 5th aug 2012. The apartment is very clean well equipped and a fabulous place to relax after a long day visiting all the sights in beautiful historic Edinburgh. Liz thankyou...and thanks for recommending Kushies Indian restaurant...we had a fabulous meal there! Chop Chop Chinese in Leith is definitely worth a visit too. We visited there with a groupon voucher, it was the best chinese food we have ever eaten.
Our little dog stole the show in the city trotting around with his wee kilt on!
All in all a fabulous first visit to Scotland we'll definitely be back sometime and will definitely be recommending to our family and friends. Read more

A Dream Stay !!!
Just returned to australia after stints in Dubai, Amsterdam, London, Edinburgh, Paris & Bali, all bar our stay in Scotland accommodation was in Hotels, whereas in Edinburgh our stay was at the annandale apartment Complex. Thank god we took advantage of this as the apartment was just like a home away from home complete with every available household item at one's fingertips. Made the booking direct with Liz (owner) some 6 months before travelling, & during this period she constantly kept in touch with us allowing for such an easy arrival process.
One should realise that in most hotels both in Europe & the UK one could not swing a cat, coupled with that is the cost, astronomical in most situations, here we had what only can be descibed as the most decorative living conditions at a fraction of the cost of a hotel.
If ever thinking of journeying to Edinburgh do yourself a favour & book annandale apartments, you will not regret the choice, from our experience 5*. Read more

Last minute stay brilliant 5 days.
Decided very late to visit Edinburgh for our wedding aniversery and we had the most fantastic time as the olympic torch was being paraded through the city.The sun shone and the apartment was a great place to relax after long days out and about.Plenty of great bars and eateries within walking distance of the apartment and the parking is a real bonus for us.
The redecoration and new bathroom only adds to the already first class apartment and facilities, we cannot fault the break we had and Liz as ever is an exemplary host.
Looking forward to our Christmas break already ! Read more

Best shower and comfy bed
We traveled in Europe for the whole month of May 2012 and stayed at an apartment in Paris, Seville, Lisbon, London and Edinburgh. This apartment in Edinburgh was the nicest in the quiet neighborhood. The bed was comfy and beautiful. The shower was the best.
The apartment was in a good location, within walking distance of many attractions and not far from the train station. There was a grocery store nearby. The best part was it was near a nice restaurant Liz recommended. We had dinner there every night. The food was superb and dessert was delicious.

Look no further, this is the perfect Edinburgh apartment
I booked this apt rather last minute without a huge amount of research and so was not sure what to expect. The apt exceeded all of my expectations, it is in fact more more like a 5star hotel than a regular apartment. The owner Elizabeth greeted us at the apt and explained how to use the cooker etc. We stayed 3 nights and Liz was available to call or text any any time whenever we had any questions.
The apt itself was spotless and to hotel standard. My partner is a clean freak and the kind of person who checks surfaces, sheets etc., and even he was impressed. Brand new kitchen and bathroom (great shower pressure and toiletries provided), newly decorated throughout and a very comfortable king size bed with expensive sheets.
The location is 5-10min from the centre of Edinburgh, the whole time we were there we never used any public transport, we just walked everywhere. Located in a quiet apt building there was no noise from the outside or other neighbors. Its about a 10min walk from Waverley station and there is Tesco supermarket nearby so you can cook and eat in the apt very easily. Plenty of cups, plates, pots, pans and utensils. Tv in living room and bedroom. Plenty of take outs and restaurants nearby.
Overall we were very impressed by the standard of the apt and for the price we paid it was amazing (a hostel would not have been much cheaper). Perfect for couples of any age or a family. Liz even let us store our bags in the apt on the last day as we had a late train. Later she texted to say I had left my camera behind and then shipped it back ! Outstanding. Read more

Home away From Home
The annandale apt. was well located, 10 minutes walk from Waverly Station and the base of Princes Street. The apartment itself is impeccably clean, very stylish, and oh-so-comfy. You're within a block or so of groceries and restaurants. We were able to get around easily (and we're neither young nor thin).
Lots of heat and hot water, lots of room. We particularly liked the king-size bed and the washer/dryer.
We arrived quite late, and really appreciated the coffee, tea, milk, and snacks Liz McVie had laid on for us. Also the fresh flowers. So welcoming. Liz had also mailed us the keys, so there was none of the waiting around for someone to show up.
The whole stay was a total pleasure. Read more

Well equipped central flat with excellent, helpful owner/ manage
The previous reviews we had read made us feel confident about this booking and we are happy to confirm that the very high standards continue to be maintained. On a short break it is really important that arrival and departure are effectively organised and they were. Liz couldn't have been more helpful.
The flat was quiet, had internal shutters on the bedroom window, and was very comfortable. There was plenty of good quality kitchen equipment and everything worked well. The photos are very accurate still. Everything was spotless and we were given full contact details in case of any problems (we had none).
It's central location (near Hopetoun Crescent / Carlton Hill and near Edinburgh Central YHa) made it easy to walk around, but there were also many bus stops nearby (at Elm Row). The local shops and restaurants provided a good range of independent suppliers which was refreshing. We had an enjoyable meal at The Olive Branch nearby. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and we hope to return at some point. Many thanks Liz! Read more

Great place -very welcoming owner
Stayed here while on business in Edinburgh. Lovely little flat, has everything you would need.
Great location, easy for Princes Street and the shops.
Will definitely be going back!
Great City Break - Far Better Than a Hotel
Great service from initial email enquiry, through to booking, arrival and departure.
Liz made the whole process as easy as possible & particularly liked the flexibility on checkin/out.
Free parking a plus for a city stay - costs can soon mount up if you have to find your own overnight parking.
Apartment situated a 10 mins walk to Princes St via a number of different routes. Plenty of decent cafes and pubs very close by on Broughton Street.
Very impressed with the level of kit in the apartment - had pretty much everything you could possibly think of. Exactly like a home from home.
King Size bed, 2 wardrobes, plenty of drawers, TV in bedroom.
Dishwasher, Washing Machine, Coffee Maker, Iron, Toaster, Microwave etc & a whole host of kitchenware. Storage Heaters - kept apartment lovely and warm.
Would definately recommend to anyone.
Excellent standard of accomodation in fantastic location
A hugely warm welcome received from Liz, at the apartment upon our arrival. Liz was both helpful in relation to the apartment equipment and what to see and do in Edinburgh.

Exceeded our expectations
Exceeded our expectations, the flowers on the kitchen table made us feel very welcome. Within easy walking distance of the city centre, a good choice of bars and restaurants nearby as well. Liz was very friendly
No stress stay in Edinburgh
We had a great few days in Edinburgh that was helped by the fact that the accommodation had everything we needed and everything works and it is just a short walk into the city. Liz was great and made us feel very welcome. Would definitely stay again.
Welcoming, well appointed and well stocked. Good value

Central place with personal hosting
Liz tried and succeed to have us feel at home during our visit in Edinburgh.
The apartment is centrally located and very comfortable.
just what we wanted for our family holiday in edinburgh
We are frequent visitors to Edinburgh and this is the first time we have booked self catering. The property was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Although a first/second floor flat still suitable for our small child. Short walk to city centre. Parking provided was big plus. Friendly service. For us there was no negatives. Would book again.
Family with Teenagers
Wonderful, and will definitely return if visit Edinburgh again.
The owner is a very thoughtful person. She has every item ready and handy for us. Very good location and definitely will return if visit Edinburgh again.

Central location in the heart of Edinburgh, convenient and comfortable, good value.

wendy and adrian
right from the start the service was very good being met at the door of the accomodation and being shown car parking and around the appartment, which was modern, clean and perfect for our stay. it was in an ideal location within walking distance of shops, restaurants, castle etc. our only complaint was the weather which was extremely windy - please can we place an order for sun next time!!! Many thanks for a lovely stay
Very comfortable and relaxing stay
Excellent apartment in a very central location. Every detail has been thought of and the apartment was spotlessly clean.
Many thanks to Liz for making my business trip much easier, by staying at the apartment instead of a hotel. Great value for money too!

Home from Home
Arrived early after travelling for 24 hours; the apartment was ready; we much appreciated the early entry. It was immaculate, a really well equipped clean and tidy apartment. It is close to the city centre, main railway station and airport shuttle bus(all about 12 minutes walk) also close to the bus stop where via a selection of buses and a day ticket you can go anywhere in Edinburgh and the surrounding area. We enjoyed ourselves at the apartment and in Edinbutgh generally.
Richard & Sandra
A place that felt like home.
I would definatly reccommend this apartment it was close to the centre of edinburgh and nightlife. Lovely area, Liz was very welcoming and friendly. It beats staying in a hotel as the price is very affordable. 5* apartment.
Traveller with baby
Great service, great location enhanced our Edinburgh stay
Excellent location, facilities and top service from host. Highly recommended to all.
Pristine centrally located apartment
I stayed here for 5 weeks while working in Edinburgh and couldn't have asked for anywhere better. It's centrally located, just a short 5 minute walk from all the main sights and transport links. The apartment is clean and cosy and bigger than most one bedroom places I've stayed in before. I'd highly recommend it for both short and long stays and will be sure to stay there again next time I'm in Edinburgh.
PAT AND MICK.
Apartment cosy, warm and very clean. Liz greeted us and made us feel very welcome.We were due to get married during our stay and LIZ left us a bottle of bubbly which was so sweet of her. Work arranged with LIZ for champagne to be delivered to our apartment LIZ put herself out with our boss 110%. This is the very best apartment I have been to in Edinburgh and LIZ the best host ever. Will be going back in the near future would never stay anywhere else. Thanks LIZ . Always in our thoughts. Pat and Mick. Xx
Stayed in edinburgh during the worst weather for 30 years but had a brilliant time.We have been renting apartments in Edinburgh for 15 years during the christmas period as a get away from it all relaxing time as both our jobs involve working during the festive period. The apartment was very warm and cosy when temperatures outside were minus double figures could do with two sofa's in the lounge though so we could both put our feet up in the evening. No complaints at all with the location, condition of the apartment or the facilities provided they were first class for our stay. Liz was on hand if we needed anything but we are fairly independant and never needed to bother her Looking forward to our 2011 break
Amazing 7 days in this beautiful apartment!
It was a great stay for my last 7 days in Edinburgh as a international student. I enjoyed this very comfortable and awesome flat. It is really close to the city center and I could enjoy the christmas market and shopping everytime.
Thank you Liz McVie and Simon Gibbs for the best 7 days in Edinburgh!!!
Absolutely brilliant, couldn't have wished for more
We had an amazing time in Edinburgh and loved Liz's apartment. From her warm welcome, to clear information about the apartment, booking etc was great. The apartment had everything that we needed, included those little things that you always have a home, but you don't want to buy when you go away for a short time. It was warm and cosy with the heating. The sofa beda was easy to use and very comfortable for our daughter. Thanks Liz, it was a great holiday!
Willie & Anne
** Excellent **
We booked this rental for 3 nights during Nov. Check in was efficient, apartment was very comfortable and clean while Liz was an excellent host. The apartment catered for all travellers - videos, books / guides, travel cot etc. The apartment was approx 5 - 10 minutes walk from the main street ( Princess Street ), however if you want to get around and see Edinburgh, you should get a Lothian Bus day pass for ?3.00. The bus stop is 1 min walk away while Tesco is also within a 5 minute walk. This is an excellent apartment which i would highly recommend.
Just enough for about everything
The apartment is very clean and cosy. Thanks to Liz for preparing the tea and snacks which really is a big help to travelers. I like the first grade bedding. The price is very reasonable and Liz made it very flexible and required only to pay the deposit before arrival. The location is good, ~10 mins walk to Princes Street - close enough but away from the busy area. We had a superb stay. Thanks to the owner for giving this nice option to the travelers.
A very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Very clean and well looked after. It had everything you could need and the landlady was extremely helpful. It's in a great location and was a pleasure to stay in.
Great Location !! Great Value !!
The flat was very cozy and in a great location
for seeing all of Ediburghs sites. Highly recommended !!
Perfect 1st Wedding anniversary
We had the most amazing stay at annandale Street in Edinburgh. Liz made our stay perfect and the apartment was simply beautiful.
On arrival we were greeted by Liz and shown around the apartment which was cleaner than our own house (and we are quite clean people!). Liz also gave us a bottle of bubbly and anniversary card which was so nice of her and such a nice thing to do (O an flowers).
Apartment has everything you would ever need...there was even food in the cupboard and a pint of milk in the fridge.
Apartment is cosy but roomy. Decor is very modern & kitted out with nice furniture.
Kitchen massive, Bathroom nice and modern...Tv and Wifi available is a big plus.
Parking was brilliant...really safe and secure parking at the rear of the apartment.
Location is perfect...about 5 mins walk from the start of the shopping (John Lewis)...and easily to get to most places.
Would recommend a few resturants we visited (Tail End ~2mins from the flat, Karens Unicorn- Chinese and Cantina Mexicana on Rose Street).
Staying for 4 nights was not really enough as there is still things we wanted to do...perfect excuse for a return visit and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Edinburgh.
Just remember to press the water heater button in the morning as it runs out quickly.
5* Accomodation...A Real Edinburgh Gem...will be back again for sure.
Clean, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable
The apartment was perfect, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen and living room were clean and well decorated. Overall i had an extremely enjoyable time here and i would recommend it to anyone.
Adam and family
Excellent location with car park easy walk to the all of central Edinburgh, nice apartment and Liz is great.
We had a great stay. Flat was clean and furnished with all mod cons. We really enjoyed our stay as it was so near to the centre. We could walk in every day and home again every night. Liz was more than helpful and nothing was a problem. We will book again for next year...
lovely place for stay
It is lovely place for visiting Edinburgh. Basic living items are supported in this room. The room is lovely and clean. It has a double bed and a sofa bed that it could suit for 4 people group. However, the location seems a little far away from city center which it spends about 15 mins to arrive. Except the location, I will say it is a wonderful place for stay when traveling Edinburgh.
Ben & Jerry
Great location and home to home comfort
It wasn't difficult to find the accommodation, 10 minutes or so walk from the city centre. We received a very warm welcome from Liz who also gave us a few tips about transportation and places to visit in Edinburgh etc. The apartment itself is very clean and spacious with home to home comfort. All the local attractions like the Royal Mile and Royal Britiannia are easily to get to; either by walking or take a bus ride. We had a wonderful time in Edinburgh and stayed in a very comfy apartment. Will not hestitate to book with Liz again.
very comfortable accomodation in great location, value plus
Owner was completely accomodating & helpful. Apartment was tastefully furnished and had everything required even stuff we didnt need like Wifi. Clean, bright comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. Location outstanding. Close to cosmopolitan Broughton St but far enough away from main tourist area & tram works. Even Europcar rental was just around the corner. Pleasant walk to Castle etc.
We were more than happy with our accomadation. excelllent apartment. lovely clean comfortable and well equipped. Lovely owner lizzy so helpful.
a pleasant central flat
A practical and attractive flat, however mattress on put-u-up sofa needs reviewing.
Mary from Dublin Ireland
wow a great find
Liz the owner of this apartment really thought of everything you might need even new rain poncho in for guests, fresh flowers and a very clean apartment.we requested an early check in as we landed at Edinburgh airport 7.30am and this was no problem Liz was at apartment when we arrived at 8.30am hard to believe but it's true This apartment is Somewhere you looked forward to coming back to in the evening.Well done Liz
Modern + well equipped apartment
We were extremely happy with our choice in selecting this apartment in beautiful Edinburgh. We received a warm & friendly welcome from Liz who then gave us a detailed tour of the apartment along with an excellent explanation of the appliances, plus directions to the best butcher shop in Edinburgh (thank u Liz for that great info). The apartment was bright & spacious and well located in the city (approx an easy 15-20 minute walk to Princes Street). As Edinburgh was the end of our 2 month touring holiday the apartment was perfect for us to take it easy and to get the laundry duties up to date.
This is a fantastic location. Just a short but interesting walk to Princes Street. Very clean, warm and comfortable accommodation. It had everything we needed. We shall book again.
Great appartment, plenty of space, well equipped and in great location. Would recommend.
Elisa & Fabrizio
We had a pleasant stay in Edinburgh on December. We travelled with two children (under 3 years old). The appartement was situated very near the center of the city and well equipped. The owner friends, who welcame us, were very friendly. We would like to come back in the future!
Annadale Street Apartment was a dream come true literally! This location allows you to be close to everything, as it sits right on Legith of which has buses that can take you anywhere, a live theater you can walk to, loaded kitchen with all the pots and pans you could need. There is a Tesco down the road so all our meals were cooked in house. The bedroom was large and very versitle you can pull the bed into two or keep as a king!
Since this was our first expereince renting by owner we must say it was made easy, we will never rent a hotel room again!
My boyfriend and I were engaged while we were there on top of Edinburgh castle and the hosts were sooooo cute they sent us a congratulations card while we were there; we truly felt at home!

Perfect for a holiday weekend
We spent a long Easter weekend in Edinburgh and this was perfect for our
needs. Cheerful and cozy on a chilly weekend, a short (15 to 20 minutes) walk
to the castle and museums, and with a small grocery nearby. We were driving,
so the available parking was a great bonus, and the apartment was easy to
access from the main roads.
Liz gave us great information on getting around and her recommendation of
the meat pies (sausages, bacon, etc) at Crombies made our meals at the
We loved Edinburgh and if we are fortunate enough to visit again, we would
definitely hope this apartment is available!
This is a very cosy and comfortable flat with everything you are looking for. The bed is really huge and very comfortable.
It is extremly clean and Liz is very nice and friendly.
I could not imagine anything better because it was perfect.
thanks for the hospitility.
Our stay was great, the apartment was perfect
Myself and my husband stayed in the Annandale apartment for one week. The apartment was a great base for us to explore Edinburgh from. Local amenities on your door step and a 10 min walk into the centre.
The apartment itself was very clean, warm and well equipped. Liz was very helpful prior and during our stay at Annandale. We would definatley stay there again.
A nice apartment
Hi, the week I.ve spended at the apartment in Annandale Streec has been very pleasent, I´ve enjoid so much. Very confortable, I´m sure I´ll go back on summer
Dan & Harriet
Amazing apartment amazing location
We stayed in Liz's apartment for Valentines day this year. The location is fab - just a 10 minute walk from Princes street in the city centre. The apartment is super super clean, quiet, modern and stylish and has all the kitchen and bathroom essentials - no stone has been left un-turned! We had an amazing weekend! Dan & Harriet - London.
Beautifully kept apartment
My daughter and I stayed at the Annandale Apartment last week on a 3 day trip to Edinburgh to visit another of my daughters who is at university there. The apartment was perfect for us. Only one bedroom but it has a huge bed in it, which is actually two singles pushed together I think, so there was no problem in sharing the bed with my sixteen year old! There is also a sofabed in the sitting room which we didn't use, but the bedding had all been left out for us had we wanted to use it. The kitchen is very well equipped, even down to providing cooking foil, dishwasher tabs and washing powder! There was also complimentary tea/coffee/sugar/cereals/jam which was very useful when only staying a few days. The apartment was immaculately clean and very well kept. Other reviews have mentioned getting buses, but it is so close to the centre of the City that we walked each day. The walk to Princes Street is less than 15 minutes I would say, although there are certainly lots of buses if thats your preferred method of travel! My daughter's halls were actually on the other side of town but a bus took us from the end of the road all the way there in about 15 minutes for £1.20. There is a Tesco Express about 5 minutes walk away which is well stocked with most things you may need. All in all a great find and would very highly recommend it. Liz was extremely helpful and there were even fresh flowers on our arrival - what a nice touch.

"Fabulous" was the word we have in mind when we entered the flat!! I can assure there is no difference between the pictures on the website and the reality: the flat is as gorgeous and cosy as described and seen.
Really central too: two bus stations from the center of Edinburgh. A least five bus were passing by the nearest stop, a supermarket 5 minutes walk from there,... truly perfect!!!
Of course, I can not finish without metionning the kindness and availability of Liz: everything was done to make our stay confortable and enjoyable (flowers, welcoming basket with delicatessen,...)!!
We will for sure visit again and we fully recommend this flat.

A wonderful stay
The apartment is very modern, comfortable and well furnished, with everything you might need.
Excellent location (the car stayed parked the 3 days I spent there) with restaurants, delis, groceries one or two blocks away.
I would highly recommend Annandale Street Apartment for any of my friends and in the case I came back to the nice city of Edinburgh, I will definitely stay there.
My parents and I stayed in this lovely apartment for three days and we were extremely happy with it. The location is excellent, the rooms are spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. Highly recommended!
The apartment was very nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Liz met us at the apartment and showed us where everything was. She was so nice and made us feel entirely welcome and at home. I highly recommend staying at the apartment and look forward to a return visit in the near future. Thanks for a great apartment and for being so nice Liz!

The perfect apartment in Edinburgh
I'm very, very happy to find this beautiful, central and tidy appartment.
We really enjoyed our holidays at Annandale Street.
It's a real plaesure to be in Liz McVie's lovely appartments an I'm looking forward to my next stay in Edinburgh at Annandale Street!
Liz, we absolutely looove your apartment. I traveled shooting photos for days, diving in the west, castles, cars, bus's, hiking, when i met with my family and we arrived in Edinburgh we were all exhausted. We had great expectations and they were all exceeded. Your place felt like i was at my sisters house. Very comfy, very well appointed and talk about a great location. The only thing that exceeded your apartment was your wonderful hospitality.
I will be coming back next year and will finish my trip with a nice relaxing stay at your place for sure. It feels like we have a distant relative to stay with.
Looking forward to seeing you again...
Forget about staying in hotels
This apartment comes highly recommended. It is what I would class as 'home from home'. Every possible need is cater for. It's far nicer than staying a hotel as we would normally do. Its close to all amenities and just the place to stay in Edinburgh.
What a fantastic apartment, it was just lovely. The apartment itself is just a short walk to the shops which is great, you really don't need a car when you stay here. Buses are close by too. The apartment was so clean and tidy, very nice, and the owener Liz was fantastic right from the start. No problems at all, everything you need in your own home was in here, washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, iron, the lot!
We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and we were so pleased we'd chosen to stay here. We'll definitely come back! Thank you so much for everything. Marie x
