Beautiful hotel, excellent service, good breakfast and a very nice scottish atmosphere. The daily concerts by the host were touching and beautiful. We would really like to visit the hotel again! Carl F. Høeg and family

We were really satisfied with this B&B. The welcome was very warm, we particularly loved the Scottish music nights (4 times a week, we were lucky enough to be there twice). Nice breakfast, good position.

I arrived from the Highlands and tromped around town for a while, vexed by the high prices of hotels, before learning that there were guest houses out along Gilmore Place, just the other side of the castle and near to Grassmarket and other intriguing locales. When I found the Averon, I was delighted to be welcomed by a kilted young... More

While visiting Edinburgh in July we were treated to slides and songs by the owner. Good quality slides accompanied by Scottish songs with good guitarist and fine singer. Good location with a warm welcome. Breakfast was very good. Walk to castle and Royal Mile about 10 minutes. Would stay there again. A little expensive but had parking and location.

Very friendly staff, dressed in traditional Scottish clothing. We had a very nice breakfast although there was no yoghurt. Very good location close to the centre of Edinburgh and good off street parking available. We particularly liked the way the owner is very proud of his 18th century building and likened it to both the Govenor's houses at both Stirling... More

We stayed in the annex next door so did not see rooms in the main house, but ours was quite comfortable. The staff was helpful with answers to our questions, and having a hearty breakfast served by waiters in kilts was delightful. Mr. Cran's evening of music and pictures of Scotland was a plus, as was Averon's lovely flower garden..... More

We enjoyed our stay at Averon Guest House. Very charming room with lovely authentic fireplace. Very friendly staff, always helpful with a dash of humor. We also appreciated the Scottish live music played by Mr. Cran. Within walking distance of the city centre. Highly recommended. Nice and cosy.
