10% off and a bottle of bubbly when you book an Easter weekend with the Edinburgh Address. Cheers!

 

What could be better than an Easter weekend in Edinburgh? The daffodils and crocuses are blooming in Princes Street Gardens, the sun is beginning to shine (fingers crossed it stays that way!), the trees are green, and there's definitely a feel of spring in the air. There are even some people wearing sunglasses! We have a Easter offer and a number of lovely apartments still available for you lucky folk; don't worry the Easter bunny will still know where to find you even if you're not at home. He is magic after all. 

                                                                                     

Castle View Apartment @ Castle Terrace 

(formerly Apartment Castle Terrace @ 9A)alt

 

 

With beautiful views of the Castle and just two minutes from Princes St Gardens, this apartment would make an ideal base for your spring break. During the day you're ideally placed to explore both Edinburgh's Old and New Towns and for dinner why not wander along the road to Timberyard for a Scandinavian inspired meal that's as fresh and light as the spring air?

Castle View's newly refurbished interior is the height of glamour, with Scottish touches here and there to remind you of its setting in Scotland's Capital - just in case the view of the Castle from the living room window isn't enough!  

 

Classic Marchmont Charm @ The Meadows

This is another lovely apartment (we're so proud of them all!) with high ceilings, a traditional family feel, lots of light and space, and a great shared garden to relax in and maybe even have a barbeque. The interior is classic and fresh with everything you'll need to feel at home.

The Meadows is nearby with some dedicated frisbee players, musicians, tightrope walkers, and picnicking groups. Once you've enjoyed the fresh air Brasil Crepes is just at the top of Middle Meadow Walk selling the most delicious gluten free savoury pancakes in the whole world; the whole family will love them, promise! Once you've finished your pancakes you can pop round the corner to Looking Glass Books and have a hot chocolate and explore the literary delights on offer, there might even be an author reading.

Spring is upon us!

April is officially Garden Month! The weather in Edinburgh is brightening up today after a week of Saharan desert dust and eerie fog. To celebrate the start of Spring, here’s a list of our apartments with gardens as well as a few of our top gardens and open spaces in Edinburgh to spend an afternoon.

Castle Terrace Garden Apartment

As well as having one of the best views in the city, our Garden Apartment @ Castle Terrace also boasts its own private garden! Accessed from the downstairs garden room, guests can catch some afternoon sun whilst sitting with a glass of wine on the patio (pictured left). The garden is well maintained with gorgeous bedding boxes and flower boxes along the walls. It really is a joy to spend time in this apartment, whether relaxing in the garden, or entertaining friends in the spacious living room, looking out onto Edinburgh Castle.

 

Drumsheugh Apartment @ Drumsheugh Gardens has access to the eponymous communal garden in Edinburgh’s West End. This private communal garden is always beautifully manicured with many of its flowers coming into their first bloom at this time of year. For those of you lucky enough to have the Drumsheugh Apartment booked for 2014, a key to these private gardens is provided during your stay, it’s the perfect place to sit and read a book on a warm afternoon.

The Old Chapel @ George Square is a superbly renovated church in heart of Edinburgh. As well as experiencing the grand interior of this building, guests also enjoy their own garden to the rear of the building (pictured below), with a large area of grass perfect for playing badminton or Frisbee, as well as a patio area with seating. At the end of the garden there is space for 2 cars and entry is via an electronic security gate. This apartment is perfect for a big family or group, boasting 3 double bedrooms as well as a sofabed which can be utilised in order to sleep 8. The Old Chapel is also a 2 minute walk from The Meadows, which many an Edinburgh resident considers to be their retreat in the city.

The Meadows is a large communal park in the centre of Edinburgh. The expanse of grass is in use throughout the year by various sports teams, students studying in the sunshine before exams and then celebrating with barbeques afterwards, dog walkers and cyclists are also regular visitors to the area. The Meadows Festival takes place from 7-8th June and is a free event featuring live music, funfairs and plenty of food – the perfect family day out. The Meadows is well connected by bus links throughout the city and is a 10 minute stroll from several of our Edinburgh Address apartments.

Stockbridge Grandeur

There is a hidden gem in Edinburgh which residents are trying to keep a secret! The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is tucked away in Stockbridge, close to our Carlton Street apartment, and is a delight to wander around. Entrance to the garden is free, making it the perfect place to spend a morning if you are a big group. Entrance to the Glasshouses asks for a small admission charge, but is well worth it for some of the species you get to see. If you’re coming with kids, there’s also a great playpark just over the road at Inverleith Park. Follow the gardens on Twitter for updates and events: @TheBotanics

Perfect for a family barbecue is The Gatekeepers Cottage @ Blacket Estate which features a large patio and seating in a secluded garden to the rear of the cottage. The garden is a real sun spot and can be enjoyed throughout the day.

Both of our apartments on Spottiswoode Road have communal gardens which can be enjoyed by our guests. Classic Marchmont Charm @ The Meadows has direct access from the apartment and features a large grassy are, perfect for the kids as well as a small patio area with a bench where parents can relax. Marchmont Main Door @ Spottiswoode Road also has a large communal garden which can be looked out to from the kitchen and bedroom windows.

Okay, so we saved the best for last, just across from Lakeside House is Dr Neil's Garden, a glorious haven for wildlife and rare flora. The garden sits at the bottom of Arthur's Seat and around Duddingston Loch. Even if you aren't booked in at Lakeside House, this is still well worth a visit while you're in Edinburgh. Lakeside House itself is the perfect group getaway, boasting both front and back gardens. The spacious and open plan living area overlooks the large garden to the back of the property, with floor to ceiling glass doors letting in all the sunshine. The garden is equipped with tables and seating and is a great location for entertaining, in the past we have had several wedding groups stay here and have used the garden as a post wedding day lunch venue.

We spent the day yesterday getting our new property ready for its photoshoot and enjoying the spectacular 360 degree views of the Edinburgh skyline. Even the dreich weather couldn't ruin the view; it only added a slightly gothic romance!

So, the table's set at the Quartermile for a delicious and intimate dinner party. The champagne's in the cooler, the bar is well stocked, the view is extraordinary, our private chef Stephen is putting the finishing touches to the food and the music is playing. You're all set to welcome the guests. There are 10 places - out of everyone in the whole of time and space, who would you invite? 

 

 

 
Stockbridge Top 5
Written by Kirsty   
Monday, 31 March 2014 12:40

In honour of our beautiful Stockbridge Grandeur @ Carlton Street, take a look at our top 5 things to do in Stockbridge.

Stockbridge Grandeur

 

1. Find unique gifts in the shops of Stockbridge

Daisy Cheynes


Our favourites are Daisy Cheynes with its great eye for beautiful pieces for your home and that perfect gift for someone special and Feminine Flair for their gorgeous clothes.

Stockbridge is all about these independent stores and boutiques and it’s great to support local businesses!

 

2. Stroll through Stockbridge Market

Stockbridge market is on from 10am to 5pm every Sunday on the main street making it the perfect place to visit to pick up some fresh pastries for breakfast, gifts to take back home for the family and some sweet treats for you to enjoy as you go!

 

3. Eat at a fine dining restaurant

Stockbridge is fast becoming a foodie’s paradise! Purslane is our fave, which offers a menu reflecting the seasonal produce available. The restaurant is cosy and perfect for a romantic meal. For a bit of luxury, try their 7 course tasting menu (when available), which gives you a chance to try several of their best loved dishes – booking in advance essential.

 

Spacious living room at Stockbridge Grandeur

 

4. Explore secret areas of Edinburgh

Begin a leisurely walk in Stockbridge and head towards Dean Village, a beautiful part of Edinburgh which is unknown to many (even locals!). The area has a lovely village atmosphere and many of the people living here have stories to tell about the history of the area and the buildings. From Dean Village you can walk along the Water of Leith, visiting St Bernard’s Well on the way and either circling back to Stockbridge, or making an afternoon of it and walking right down to Leith.

 

5. Discover unique pieces of artwork

Kirsty exploring Galerie Mirages

 

There are several small galleries in Stockbridge, but our favourite has to be Galerie Mirages for it’s mysterious and magical feel. Hidden away on Raeburn Street, you enter through a narrow corridor and come into a huge room filled with treasure! From antique jewellery, to unique ethnic furniture pieces, you’ll find something special to take home with you here.

Stockbridge is the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh, easy to get to the main hustle and bustle of the city centre but allowing you to enjoy the relaxed village feel of this up and coming area.

Book your stay at Carlton Street now!

Scotland’s capital city is the perfect place to spend a few days indulging your inner photographer! With iconic views over the castle and old town, impressive architecture as well as the beautiful faces of us Edinburghers (!), you could spend a whole week taking pictures to commemorate your trip.

A recent corporate guest at The Studio @ Drumsheugh Gardens made the most of his working holiday by climbing Arthur’s Seat and getting these beautiful photographs of Edinburgh at dusk. He has generously allowed us to share them with you, what a talent!

Easter breaks in Edinburgh
Written by Meg   
Tuesday, 25 March 2014 14:04

Book a break with us for Easter weekend before March 31st and we'll welcome you with a bottle of bubbly and a chocolate egg. Hoppy Easter everyone!

 

Bedroom, The Penthouse @ The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

 

There's loads going on in Edinburgh in April; more than enough to keep the kids entertained and satisfy the grown ups as well. 

Edinburgh International Science Festival will be up and running. While officially for children the events look ready to amaze the big kids amongst us as well. The ER and CSI workshops are fantastic initiations for our future surgeons and crime scene investigators, while the Lego Exhibition might inspire a potential world-class engineer - you never know. Even if it doesn't it's still incredible! With events taking place across the city - including Edinburgh University, the National Museum, the Botanic Garden, the City Art Centre, and Summerhall - it doesn't matter which of our beautiful apartments you've booked, you're bound to be on the doorstep of an amazing scientific journey. 

If there are no kids in your party (and you really are too grown up for lego buildings) then why not try one of edtheatre's backstage tours for your moment in the spotlight? There are also the usual wine tastings, art galleries, restaurants, and shopping opportunities to keep everyone happy. 

And don't forget, book with us before March 31st for Easter weekend and receive a bottle of bubbly and a chocolate egg when you check in. Hoppy Easter!

 

 
Why the savvy are staying midweek.
Written by Meg   
Tuesday, 18 March 2014 12:44

Traditional Marchmont @ The Meadows, bedroom, Edinburgh

 

While not eveyrone can get away during the week, for those who can if offers a great opportunity to enjoy the city without the weekend buzz and to take advantage of the great value available midweek in a range of venues, attractions, and holiday apartments

Beat the crowds:

Exploring the city midweek allows you to see the best of Edinburgh without having to wait in line - it's the ultimate queue jump. You'll have been and gone before the crowds even have a chance to gather. Even moving around the city itself will be a breeze in the weekday quiet. And you have the satisfaction of being as free as a bird while everyone else is still in the office. Afternoon cocktails anyone? 

Midweek value: 

Having walked right in, queue-free, to your chosen activity you might well find that entry is a bit better value as well. Theatres and tourist attractions quite often offer different prices and discounts for midweek visits while cafes and restaurants certainly run midweek set menus and offers. Yum!

Better rates for your Edinburgh Address holiday home:

Booking one of our lovely apartments for a midweek stay can offer dramatically better value for money. In addition, weekends in our most popular apartments tend to fill up fast so booking for midweek can give you more choice in which of our fantastic properties suits you best

 

 

 
Five Holiday Home Myths Debunked
Written by Meg   
Tuesday, 11 March 2014 14:36

When we're chatting to potential guests about booking one of our beautiful apartments there are a few wee things they worry about which come up fairly frequently - they've been taken in by some holiday rental myths! We're always able to put their minds at rest and welcome them to a holiday home which exceeds their expectations by debunking these misconceptions...

 

City Centre Haven @ York Place, bedroom, Edinburgh

 

1) The pictures don't match the reality. 

You think you've booked a five-star luxury castle in the Highlands of Scotland, you've been daydreaming over the picture of its medieval turrets sillhouetted against a dramatic skyline...you arrive to find you'll be spending your hard-earned break squished into a children's playcastle, knees against your chest. Ok, so this is clearly an extreme example, but people do worry about holiday rentals not living up to the glossy photographs. Really though, misrepresenting our lovely apartments really isn't in our interests either - our aim is to make your stay fantastic beyond your expectations, not fall short the second you step in the door. We want you to arrive and think 'Wow! This is every bit as amazing as I hoped' and providing pictures which give you a real sense of our properties is one of the best ways we have to achieve this. 

Besides, our apartments are so beautiful anyway that we don't have to manipulate angles and frames. We're proud of them and want their inherent class to shine through. You only have to look at the picture of our new apartment, City Centre Haven @ York Place, to get a sense for its exceptional attention to detail and easy elegance. 

2) It feels odd to be staying in someone's home.

Most of our apartments are people's second homes, valued and loved by their families, but this is absolutely no reason why you can't love and appreciate them too. They're proud of their apartments, love Edinburgh, and want to share the experience of being here with others. There's no need to feel odd! Just enjoy your time, treat the apartments as your very own temporary home, explore the city, see the sights and write our owners a message in the guestbook or send us feedback to let them know that you loved being there! They'll only ever be pleased to have passed a little bit of happiness along and it's our raison d'etre to make your stay outstanding as well. The owners and the team at The Edinburgh Address get the satisfaction of participating in your happy holiday memories and you can have the most comfortable time possible. Everybody wins and nothing odd in sight!

3) Renting is expensive.

This one simply isn't true. Some holiday homes are more than others, but compared to hotel prices staying in a rental property is dramatically better value for money. Especially if you have a large group looking for more than one bedroom. Staying in one of our apartments can really offer you the best value while also providing a high standard of luxury which simply wouldn't be possible in a hotel of the same price bracket. On top of this, holiday homes cater for a much wider range of requirements. We have apartments for couples, families, corporate guests, long stay guests, city breakers, international travelers, and they all have completely individual characters to suit even the most idiosyncratic guest down to the ground. No more standard issue hotel rooms! Rental provides both a sense of individuality and independence and great value.

 4) The properties aren't well maintained.

The turnaround team would take exception to this idea! Whenever a guest leaves one of our apartments we make a thorough check to make sure that everything is ship shape, top notch, and ready to go. In the rare event that something does go wrong then you only have to call our 24/7 help number to receive immediate assistance.  

In the long term, we're committed to keeping the apartments at the very cutting edge. They're regularly updated and polished to our high standard to make sure that you will never be disappointed. This goes back to our pride in our apartments - we want you to be impressed too! 

5) The properties aren't cleaned properly. 

We have a team of professional cleaners who make sure all of our apartments are cleaned to hotel standards. This also includes towels on your bed, toiletries, and a welcome pack. If you're staying long term then we also include complementary cleans and fresh linen so that you have that hotel fresh feeling for the duration of your stay. 

 

So, there you go! 5 holiday rental myths debunked! There are fewer and fewer reasons not to book your Edinburgh Address today...

 

 

 

 

 
Why you should book your summer holiday early
Written by Meg   
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 15:43

Gatekeeper's Cottage @ Blacket Estate, living room, Edinburgh

You won't miss out on your perfect holiday home.

The early bird catches the worm! Places fill up pretty quickly over the summer, especially during the school holidays, so if you want to ensure getting the perfect apartment for you and your loved ones it's best to book early to avoid missing out and ending up compromising on what should be extra fun. We're already filling up fast and enquiries come in every day for dates in July and August - book your holiday home now for your perfect summer break in the city. 

You can get on with planning summer activities.

There's loads happening in and around Edinburgh this summer; the Film Festival, the Commonwealth Games, the Tattoo, the Fringe Festival, the International Festival, the Book Festival, the MoonWalk, the list goes on. Booking your summer home early means you can relax knowing you definitely have somewhere to stay, and focus on fitting in all those things you just have to see, and activities you have to try. Get the big stuff sorted and have fun planning the details!

You'll get the benefit of early bird prices on your travel. 

Flights and train tickets are considerably cheaper if you can book well in advance. With the price of both increasing rapidly this really can make a difference to your holiday budget. This leaves extra pennies to spend on all those activities you'll be doing!

 

So there you go! Book an apartment with The Edinburgh Address to be sure of a worthy home from home this summer. 

 

 
Reasons to choose our self-catered apartments
Written by Meg   
Tuesday, 18 February 2014 14:59

Spottiswoode Road, main door, Edinburgh

 

Choosing to stay in a self-catered apartment allows you to build a really individual experience for your trip away. All of our apartments have a distinct sense of character and offer a unique experience. Combine their diverse styles with the reasons listed below and you can really make your stay your own.

 

~ Loads more space ~

With self-catering you can have the feeling of home and intimacy with enough room for everyone to do their own thing without stepping on each other's toes. You also have the option of a cosy night in; if you've spent the day exploring the city then a movie marathon and popcorn in a large and comfortable living room could be the perfect end to the day. There's no need to rush back out again to keep the troops entertained. 

If you're in the city for business it's great to be able to come home at the end of the day rather than check into a hotel room where you're living out of a suitcase. Stretch out in a living room on a proper sofa, invite some colleagues back for dinner, or if you're here for while then bring your family to explore the new city with you. 

 

~ Freedom and flexibility ~

It's your day and you can plan it exactly how you want it. Or not plan it at all. Self-catering really puts the control back in your hands. If you fancy having breakfast at midday then do! If you don't want to have to worry about eating lunch out then pack it and take it with you. You don't have to fit in with a pre-arranged schedule or miss out.  You won't be missing hotel meal times and eating out instead, not unless you want to!

And you can come and go as you please without waiting to pick up your key. There's nothing to stop you spending your time exactly as you choose. 

 Fully Equipped Kitchen at Gayfield Square

~ Privacy ~ 

Avoid the awkward hotel corridor shoulder brush with the family from room 109 who you spent all dinner glaring at as their children kicked up a fuss over the boudin noir aux pommes. If you are that family then you won't have had to suffer that embarrasment in the first place - if the kids want to live only on fish fingers and custard then having your own kitchen means they can. Your apartment is your own little haven to return to after a day of adventuring or work. 

You can really get the feeling of home cooking in a well-equipped kitchen, kicking back in a great living room, stretching out on fresh linen in your comfy bed, and knowing that you won't be disturbed. For families with children, you know that they'll be able to sleep uninterrupted through the night so that you can have the evening for yourself. It's your holiday too! For those here on business, there'll be no baby in the room next door to keep you awake either. Perfect!

 

~ Cost control ~

Besides the fact that self-catered apartments are often much less expensive than hotels in the first place, you'll also have a lot more control over your expenditure. Eating out really adds up! With self-catering you can explore the local markets, such as the one in Stockbridge, and try out the fresh produce to get an authentic experience and feel like a local while keeping an eye on how much it all costs. 

All of our apartments have free, reliable wifi and there are no hidden costs. Everything is transparent and easy, cleaning equipment and welcome packs are provided so you only have to buy what you actually want. You can even pay in installments running up to your stay if it's easier; just phone the office.  

 Relax in the living room of The Penthouse

So there you have it! There are loads of reasons to book a self-catering holiday.

But if you still fancy a wee bit of the extra service a hotel provides then you're in luck. We also offer a tailored service with extra cleans, late check-outs, private chefs, beauty treatments, and tours so that you can have your stay exactly how you want it. Or if you simply need recommendations for restaurants, activities, or bars then we're always happy to advise. If there's something you'd like then ask when you book and we'll do our best to help.

Burns Night Events in Edinburgh
Written by Meg Bartlett   
Tuesday, 21 January 2014 12:47

Castle Terrace Apartment, Edinburgh

 

 I am really looking forward to Burns Night on Saturday. Haggis, neeps, and tatties is one of my all time favourite meals! And I'll be dancing the night away at a ceilidh on Friday night to get in the spirit of things.

 For anyone not Scottish, Burns Night can seem a little bizarre - we recite incomprehensible poetry very loudly, eat loads of mashed food, drink whiskey, dance like hooligans, and stab inanimate objects. But it is fun.  I promise!

 And there are loads of things happening in Edinburgh to celebrate our national poet. The Scottish Storytelling Centre has a range of things planned from a proper Burns dinner, to plays, to stories, to music. Check  it out here. The Scottish Malt Whisky Society are refusing to be outdone and are throwing a traditional three course Scottish meal complete with pipers and, obviously, whisky. Tickets £39 by phone (0131 555  2929). There are also suppers over at Prestonfield House Hotel in aid of Prostate Scotland on the 23rd and at St Columba's Hospice on the 24th. The latter has a comedic theme with some of Scotland's comic  talent lining up to keep the crowds entertained with various recitals while Slanj band featuring Skerryvore will be playing some rocked up ceilidh music to keep you on your feet. Tickets £49 or VIP £65.

 Following on from their success last year Annasach ceilidh band are throwing a more traditional party at The Counting House (once host to the bard himself!). Those new to ceilidh dancing needn't worry either as  Trisha will be calling the dances to keep everyone right. Tickets are £14 (conc. £12) and available online or on the door. The Ghillie Dhu have a fair few events for kids and grown ups. You can have a look at  those here

 For a more complete list of everything going on glance over this page

 

Some hae meat and canna eat,

And some wad eat that want it;

But we hae meat and we can eat,

And sae the Lord be thanket.

Join the tartan army for a weekend of rugby inspired madness in Edinburgh! Whether you choose to shout your support at the scene of the crime, or in one of Edinburgh's many pubs there's no doubt that you're in for some fun! 

The fireworks, cannons, and acapella rendition of the national anthem are sure to whip up the crowd over at Murrayfield for Scotland's matches against England on the 8th Feb and France on the 8th March, while the chants, enthusiasm, and sheer volume of fans filling the pubs is enough to get a carnival feeling going everywhere else as well. 

If you don't fancy having to traipse home afterwards why not book one of our apartments for the weekend? We have lots of comfy apartments to choose from here

 

O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against them,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent them homeward
To think again.

Come and join the rock n' roll! The amazing Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story finally comes from the West End to Edinburgh. Watch an amazing cast of actors and musicians recount Buddy Holly's meteoric rise to fame, culminating with his final performance at The Surf Ballroom. Including That'll Be The Day, Oh Boy Rave On, La Bamba, Johnny B. Goode, and Shout, it's definitely not one to miss!

£3 off all performances of Dial M for Murder @ King's Theatre ~ 18th-22nd February.

This production of Frederick Knott's dark thriller is earning some very complimentary reviews; 'Dial M for Marvellous' say The Daily Telegraph, while The Times went for the disappointingly unalliterative 'Icily elegant'. Tony is sure that his wife is having an affair and plans the apparently perfect murder until a sudden twist sees it falter. Buzz words include passion, betrayal, erotic, and...murder!

£5 off Singin' in the Rain from Monday to Thursday and £3 off Fridays and Saturdays @ The festival Theatre ~ 25th Feb- 15th March.

This classic tells the story of the demise of the silent film and the first Hollywood musical. With a wide spread of five star reviews, this production truly is spectacular, filled with wit, charm, glamour, romance, and a set to die for. Look out for those well-loved tunes, Good Morning, Make 'em Laugh, Moses Supposes, and, of course, Singin' in the Rain! Get out of the Edinburgh rain to enjoy this more romantically precipitous experience!

 

* all deals are valid for a maximum of four tickets per booking. A current booking reference number must be provided to claim.

If you're looking for things to fill the long rainy Scottish days then fear no more! Edinburgh has loads to offer for kids and grown-ups alike. 

1) A Day at the Museum

Check out what Edinburgh's national museums have to offer. There are loads of exciting exhibitions on topics ranging from the Higgs Boson particle to Japanese Kabuko theatre.

2) Indoor Climbing

The Edinburgh International Climbing Arena has a wide range of activities but the indoor climbing wall is our favourite. Just because it's raining doesn't mean you can't have an action adventure! 

3) See some Art

Catch Rodin's 'The Kiss' while it's still in Edinburgh! The Portrait Gallery has an exhibition called 'The Nation // Live'  which has brought together work from five community outreach projects investigating the contemporary relevance of major shifts in Scottish history. Worth a look with the referendum coming up! 

4) Dynamic Earth

A real interactive learning experience for all the family. Follow the story of our Earth's creation through a series of room installments depicting the past, present, and future of the human planet. 

5) The Scotch Whisky Experience

Get warm the old-fashioned way in a trip round a replica distillery and sample the world's largest collection of Scotch whisky. Yum!

 

With all this on offer you'd have to choose to be bored!
