We want you to know that your health, safety and wellbeing is important to us
A wee note from Anna and The Edinburgh Address team…
We are delighted that the 26th April has been announced as the opening date for self catering in Scotland. Most tourism and hospitality venues will be open too!
We have missed our guests so much and are so excited that we can welcome you once again.
In line with rules on indoor gathering:
From 26 April - guests from one household can stay overnight in self-catering.
From 17 May - four guests from two households can stay overnight in self-catering.
Children 12 years and under not included. Subject to any government amendments.
Until then are are open for essential travel as per Scottish Government Guidelines. We will ask for information to ensure that travel is legally permitted.
Since the start of 2021 we have been working hard to provide safe and much needed accommodation for people who need to be in Edinburgh for essential reasons. Some of our guests who have been exempt from the travel restrictions include those visiting for medical reasons, caring purposes or essential work.
Please chat to Siobhan who helps to place guests in the right apartment for essential accommodation needs. For example some of our guests have been Edinburgh families needing emergency accommodation due to stressful situtions such as floods etc. We take family dogs in some of our apartments and your beloved pets can come with you.
