Anita and David go that extra mile to make your stay as enjoyable as possible,nothing is to much trouble. Cooked breakfast is out of this world,rooms... More

We were offered a family room which was nice and big. Room was clean and modern. Very generous with amenities. Great location. The bus from town stopped right outside the house. Excellent breakfast. The host was hospitable.

Stayed there for two nights as a great start for our holiday in Scotland. The place is excellently located close tomLeith Walk and it is only a 20 minute walk to the city centre. The landlords are wonderfully friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is good. The rooms are in very good condition, rather pretty and very clean. We will come... More

Just had a 2 night weekend stay here, and it's an absolute gem. Anita & David are the perfect hosts and their B&B is really clean and cosy. I'd recommend the Ayden if you're looking for a cosy room within 20 minutes walk of the centre of the city.

Our 4 night stay at The Ayden was perfect: our room was a nice size and incredibly quiet, with a beautifully comfortable bed and a nice en-suit; David and Anita were also the perfect hosts - and provided one of the nicest selection of breakfasts I have had anywhere (I seriously recommend the vegetarian Scottish breakfast, with haggis - beautiful!)....

We stayed for 4 nights at the Ayden last month and couldn't have done better. Excellent value for money, wonderful, friendly atmosphere. Anita and David are great hosts, making everyone feel really at home. Our room was huge, modern, clean and well appointed. Breakfasts are good and tasty, great coffee. The fresh fruit topped with yoghurt was our favourite, inspite... More

My husband and i stayed here 1 night. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. The room was clean, cozy and nice sized. The price was quite reasonable. The breakfast was delicious with many options available for anyone. There was absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. I would highly recommend going there!

Good quiet location, great Scottish breakfast, friendly hostess, clean and tidy rooms great price for the area. 5/5. The hostess was able to take us in on very short notice without bookings and hold our luggage securely while we went touring Edinburgh. Very pleased with this place and I highly recommend going here if anyone is in the area!

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
