We've been there this summer. A good B&B, maybe not a special one, but definitely a good one. Friendly, clean, a very good breakfast and a few minutes by bus from town center. If you plan a visit to Edimborough be confortable that staying here will be fine.

Sergio, Thank you for the fair review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it is a place that you would stay generally when travelling but if you wanted a more extravagant place for a very special occasion the five star hotels are in the centre. We do however get our fair share of honeymooners and people... More

I visit Edinburgh for work often and stay 'in town', but this is a first for me. Although not central, Aynetree really isn't that far out. It is a very short and easy bus ride - the stop is right outside. My room was very comfortable, very clean and quiet - just what was required after the long drive from... More

Dear Guy, Thank you very much for your glowing review. I did not meet you (I am off sick for 3 months) but Brian has told me that you were the "perfect guest" and that you had both got along fine which is important if you are staying 4 nights which you were. What is interesting is that you stayed... More

Booked this B&B on a business trip for reasons it was close to clients and the very good reviews. On arrival we were welcomed by Brian the host and were immediately asked for payment by cash! a bit strange as we had not even been shown the room, we were told we had been given a larger room at no...

It was with disgust that I read your harsh report as you never mentioned any of these points to my face. But then that would have shown some integrity which appears to be lacking in your personality. Let me start with the fact that you had to pay cash on arrival. We tried to check your credit card before your... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the charming Aynetree Guest House. Our room and bathroom were spotless, Brian and Anne were really welcoming and certainly didn't let us go hungry with the full Scottish breakfast! Coming from London, we also really appreciated the quiet at night.

Thank you for your great review. I hope that you received the belongings that you left and I posted for you. There are so many items left behind in the guest house (mostly unclaimed) that the charity shop now knows me by name! Hope to see you both again. Brian. More

We visited Edinburgh when the Military Tattoo was starting, so this guest house on the east side was about the only place with rooms, even booking three months in advance. The owner's wife was in the hospital the day we arrived, so he left instructions on how to access a key to open the front door. We had a room... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. "the only place with rooms" gives the reader the reason why rooms are much higher in price in August. There are similar properties to us (small guest houses within 15 to 20 mins. by transport from the centre) at a higher price in August and some do not supply breakfast. Our prices... More

Overall, it was a decent place to stay for our large group, being a very convenient locale for Edinburgh (by bus), coastal Portebella (15-20 min walk), and access to the surrounding area by vehicle. However, this place could really use a common seating area for guests to gather outside of the 8-9+breakfast time. Most of the rooms are small and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. Accepting 11 people in the middle of the Edinburgh Tattoo and Festival is very unusual for a small guest house such as ours. We have six rooms and this party of people booked five of them. I had reservations about accepting the booking as it would mean that the sixth room would... More

Owner was helpful in advising on local dining without having to go back into city after long day. Directed us to Seaside dining, oldest active golf course in world and easy route out of city. Great layout of Front room, second floor, slept 4 with bath en suite.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad that you found room 4 acceptable even though it is separate from the room. Having the lack of pubs nearby is good for us as I cannot stand "spilling out" time when it can be noisy and this would disturb guests and ourselves. The... More

Very clean B&B with an excellent breakfast. We had the double room with private bathroom, a little different but it worked fine. Bus stop just outside of B&B, 20 mins to city centre. Friendly and helpful owners.

Traveling with a group of 7 people and finding suitable accommodation was a challenge, but the owners of the Aynetree were wonderful to deal with. They were able to meet all our requests and were very friendly and helpful, even offering to help with our sightseeing itinerary. Being able to communicate with them prior to our trip was extremely helpful.... More

Thank you for your great review. It made my day reading it as we both work hard to please everyone but do not always succeed! At least we do try. I agree that we are very good at communicating.

Stayed in this guest house for 1 week for a short holiday and we loved every minute of it. Very clean, traditional yet modern and a very friendly atmosphere. Brian was very helpful and welcoming and the breakfasts were excellent. We would stay again without hesitation.
