We had a very enjoyable stay at the Aynetree, our room was comfortable and the breakfasts very tasty, they set you up for the days sight seeing in Edinburgh. As mentioned in other reviews the bus stops are located by the house and the fare is £1.50 each way, and the buses are every few minutes. Brian sorted us out... More

We're a young couple who stayed at Aynetree Guesthouse for 3 nights. Brian was super friendly when we arrived and immediately explained how to get around in Edinburgh. The bus stop is right in front of the house, which is really handy! We didn't mind it at all that we had to take a 20min bus ride into the centre,... More

Stayed at, Aynetree Guesthouse, for two nights. Received a warm welcome from, Brian, who gave us all the information on buses etc. Being able to park the car and take the bus was great, the bus stop is right outside the house with frequent buses into the city. The journey takes just twenty minutes. We stayed in the family room... More

We were a bit nervous at first when we read the reviews about the angry man banging on our door to get out, but were happy to find quite the opposite. The owners were very friendly and helpful; as soon as we landed he explained how the bus system worked (which was perfect as it was our first stop and... More

The house was lovely, clean and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were great, although the background music played is distracting and annoying (and breakfast is served way too early, from 8-9am). The guesthouse was much further from the city centre than we anticipated, but staff were extremely helpful in giving us bus routes. They also organised us tickets to Edinburgh castle,... More

Brian could not have been more helpful to us when, through my error, my friend and I were stranded with nowhere to sleep that night. Not only did Brian accept our hectic request for a room, but even waited outside so we'd know we found the right place, this even though he was on his way to join his wife... More

Although we are not in the city centre we are still in Edinburgh (near Arthur's seat and Palace of Holyrood). Just in case our readers thought that our address was not in Edinburgh. I hope... More

We had a lovely stay at the Aynetree Guest House in early April of 2013. Brian and Anne were wonderful to us even before we began our vacation. All questions were answered quickly via email. I was slightly confused with the online booking form, only because I couldn’t book the room I wanted to. (This ended up being because the... More
