We ended up here by accident having had a booking with The Conifers, but it turned out they were double-booked so they arranged for us to move along the road to the Ayden. I was initially disappointed as I had chosen the Conifers on the basis of excellent reviews. However, once we got settled in the Ayden we were perfectly... More

We stayed during the Fringe festival - booked our rooms at short notice, so didn't expect much. We were blown away at the friendliness of the welcome; both David and Anita are lovely people and fantastic hosts. They were very knowledgeable about their city and helped us plan our days activities - directed us to several excellent restaurants we wouldn't... More

We stayed for four nights in August during the Fringe Festival. Our two bedrooms on the top floor were private, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. The breakfast menu was extensive, delicious and arrived promptly at the time requested. A frequent bus service goes into town and conveniently stops outside the Ayden although it is as... More

I have spent time here before together with my daughter. They have changed owner since then but The Ayden Guest House still keep the same high standard as last time! My daughter and I stayed in the big family room. The room was clean and in very good shape. Anita and David make you feel welcome and are really nice... More

We stayed at The Ayden June/July 2013 and could not fault it. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the bed was luxuriously comfortable, and the breakfasts were delicious. There is free on street parking (so unexpected being so close to Edinburgh city centre - around a 20 minute walk away). Lovely personal touches like the chocolate biscuits and also the wine... More

We had a fantastic time - great spacious bedroom (for 4), probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed in! Lovely decoration, delicious breakfast, incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Only downside is traffic noise outside if your room looks out onto Pilrig street.

The Ayden is a top class Guest House. The house was warm and welcoming as was Anita. The breakfast was lovely, I had the fruit and yoghurt with honey. Delicious. My husband said his cooked breakfast was great too. Anita packed us a lovely breakfast for our journey home as we were leaving extremely early on our last morning. We... More

We have stayed at The Hayden on 4 occasions and it is always lovely. The rooms are spotless, well-equipped and beautifully furnished. The whole house is a peaceful haven with lovely extra touches, such as classical music at breakfast and scented candles in the hall. Anita and David are very friendly and work well together as a team. The breakfast... More
