This is a step up from my initial impression which was "ew." Our room was small, the bathroom was tiny, and the breakfast was almost inedible. The fried eggs on the first day were hard cooked and the bacon was dry. The second day I opted for porridge instead and was much happier. The reasons to stay here are: 1.... More

Comfortable accomodation. Friendly staff. Older style guest house, little worn around the edges but very clean and warm. Good base as it is easy distance to walk to centre of Edinburgh. Good breakfasts.

Service was very good. Staff were very courteous and accommodating. The owner ensures that everyone would have a good stay in Edinburgh/Scotland, he would give unsolicited tips/trivia about places in Scotland.

Extremely nice B&B, close to the centre of Edinburgh. It occupies two beautiful, adjacent historic cottages (Averon House dating back to 1750), with a varying range of room sizes, stylish old-fashioned furniture and very helpful staff. It has parking spaces of its own, some of which are in an internal courtyard closed by a gate at night. Good range of... More

I stayed at Averon for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. I booked a room without toilet and it was ok. It had just a sink. Toilets were at corridor. But they do offer rooms with toilets. There are many options for eating around and I walked everywhere I wanted to visit, although there is a bus stop just... More

Breakfast was good, We enjoyed Mr Cran with his guitar and the scottish music and songs and we met Scottland through images and stories he told us. The walk into town doesn't take long and when you get past the bus stop near the... More

We have had a lovely night in "Averon guest house". Just about 10-15 min walk andf you are in the center of Edinburgh. The rooms are great and the breakfast too. We had a nice evening listening to the songs from Alan and watching the Dia show , presenting some wonderful places in scotland. We certainly will be back
