Friendly welcome on arrival, clean though small room; no chair, no mirror and nowhere to put things in the shower (but a good shower - no bath) Towels were not changed over a three night stay and bathroom not cleaned on day two either.Lovely comfortable bed though and sizeable, freshly cooked breakfast (served in a slightly cramped breakfast room).

located off Dalkeith Road on a number of bus routes, this place suited us very well. We had a family room for 3 people and it was comfortable and roomy enough. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The morning breakfast was good although we opted to stay with the continental. This guest house is a 5 minute bus ride away... More

I originally found availability to stay at Aonach Mor on late rooms. The room advertised as available was a four poster bed room. Rather than book through an intermediary I then phoned the B&B direct, and was told that the room was not actually available but we would be given the family room instead (1 x King and 2 x... More

Nice warm friendly atmosphere, very, very clean and very well decorated. We stayed in the Jacobean Room with the four poster bed which was very comfortable and clean. The shower/sauna was immaculate with a shower to die for. The breakfast choice was very wide and covered everything you could wish for. We had haggis for the first time and loved... More

We had a lovely stay at Aonach Mor, we received a very warm welcome from our friendly and knowledgable hosts. Our room was cosy and well kept and the breakfast was really lovely - we were due out to meet friends for breakfast on the second morning and were disappointed we missed out on our breakfast at Aonach Mor! Lots... More

Very helpful and friendly hosts in a lovely guesthouse in an attractive row of houses located a short bus ride, or walk for the more energetic, from city centre. While I chose a small single room with a separate shower and toilet, the bathrobe supplied was much appreciated. Breakfast was great and the extra festive season treat offered was a... More

Upon arrival at Aonach Mor Guest House, we could not have received a more hospitable welcome. The tea and shortbread provided was a treat, and the presentation of the Jacobean Suite (room 2) was second to none. As soon as we stepped in the door, the fragrance of Edinburgh in autumn greeted us, and we actively looked forward to coming... More

We enjoyed a stay at the lovely Aonach Mor Guest House with our hosts, Fiona and Tom. It is a lovely house in a quiet neighborhood, a short bus ride from the busy Royal Mile, sights and sounds of Edinburgh. Breakfast at Aonach Mor is something to behold, plentiful and delicious. Our hosts were most helpful about getting around and... More

The B&B is located 10min from city center by bus, in a quiet street. Although the house is not really insulated from inside noise - doors are thin-, this is a relaxing place. We loved the steamer in the bathroom! The couple running the house is very sweet and helpful, breakfast was generous and Robert suggested a very nice fusion... More
