Very friendly staff, the location was good, pretty close to walking to the city centre, A lot of places to eat nearby. The room we stayed was a family room, very spacious, clean and tidy. Free Wifi. Very good value for the price, Breakfast was good and plentiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

We welcomed by a Polish guy in kilt. Very friendly and very helpful. Recommended all the nice places that we should go and made sure... More

The Averon Hotel was excellent value, with friendly, helpful staff. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The free parking was areal bonus and one of the main reasons we booked this hotel, but we were surprised by the quality, considering the price.

We had picked this place as it had free secure parking on site and was within walking distance of the major sightseeing sites within Edinburgh. A full hot breakfast is included in the price which was served to you. They also had cereals, juice & fruit available. Room included free Wi-Fi access which was a real bonus. The guest house... More

I found the Averon Guest House through trip advisory and was very happy with the choice. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Parking was great, right out our door. Room was nice and clean. Bathroom a little awkward but to be expected in old houses. Nice and close to main area of the city. Would stay here again... More

Averon guest house was great value, especially for Edinburgh. We were able to check in and park the car securely a lot earlier than most guest houses / hotels and a short walk took us into the heart of Edinburgh. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable and a very hearty breakfast was served up to us by... More

For our spring break we chose our favorite European destination, beautiful Edinburgh. We love its history and friendliness of locals. And as always we chose Averon Guest House for our short trip. And not only because it is the only guest house in Edinburgh centre that has a secure parking. Their team is great, they offer outstanding service. The house... More

Centrally located guest house, just 10 mis walk from the centre. Very well priced with good breakfast. Very friendly owner and personnel. They also organise Scottish traditional music nights. I would definitely go back again and recommend it!
