2 night business trip staying at Aaron Lodge, got there late first night but met at the door and greeted by my name, nice touch. Chef was off but they arranged for a pizza to be delivered whilst we drank beer and talked football, perfect. Room had massive TV and Sky Sport so no complaints

After much searching we found this gem of a place to stay in Edinburgh having been disappointed with some previous places we have stayed in. Dot and Ted are a lovely couple - very welcoming and friendly. Beautifully clean - often a problem with in many other places! On the bus route to Edinburgh and close to the university where... More

Ted met us from the taxi to help with our bags as we arrived at the hotel- Dot had phoned earlier to check what time we planned to arrive. The relaxed and comfortable hotel worked its magic and teenagers, grandad and work-worn mother all enjoyed the delicious food and comfortable beds. With the bus stop just outside the hotel, it...

I chose Aaron Lodge based on its proximity to Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary, where I had spent the prior 2 weeks recovering from a cardiac event at a meeting downtown. I had no vehicle and no cell phone service, having planned for just a 1 week trip and back to the States. Dot and Ted went out of their way to... More

Unfortunately although we had two rooms booked back in November for a two night stay just this June, when we arrived the booking had been lost. Although the owner tried to secure us other accommodation, he had no luck, which left us very disappointed considering we had been looking forward to staying at this lodge with breakfast and other meals...

We had a room booked for 2 nights last weekend. Unfortunately due to very heavy rainstorms the lodge suffered some bad leaks which meant our room was unavailable. However this didn't hamper our stay as the owners put us up in a very lovely town flat for the same price as the lodge room. Not only that but they gave... More

Very nice bed & breakfast. The owners Dot & Ted are really lovely and they gave us a warm welcome and stay. One time we got soaked in the rain and they offered to tumble dry our clothes. We would definitely recommend this Bed & Breakfast to others.

My wife and I stayed at the Aaron Lodge for 3 nights at the end of May 2014 and it was excellent. Ted & Dot were very helpful during our stay and made us "feel at home". Our room had everything required and bed was comfortable. There was an excellent buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Evening meal was also... More
