Good service, and good prices. The outside is an unassuming building, but the accommodation inside is remarkably good, the bedroom and en-suite we stayed in were decorated to a very high standard, more like a 4-5 star hotel than a simple B&B. Breakfast is a simple buffet, but better than most. Location is not great for Edinburgh City Centre, but... More

My husband was having an operation at the Royal Infirmary. I stayed four nights at Aaron Lodge. A very well run establishment. The young lady, Margaret, was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. My room was very comfortable, well equipped and spotless. Couldn't fault Breakfast...spoilt for choice and as much as you wanted. One of the best B+B I have... More

I stayed at the Aaron Lodge, Dalkeith near Edinburgh last week while working at the Scottish Qualifications Authority. The guest house is warm and friendly with modern decor in the rooms. The en suite (room 9) was very spacious with a very modern and cleverly designed shower room with a powerful shower and subdued lighting. Ted and Dot were very... More

I booked two rooms at Aaron Lodge last November as my son was critically ill in Intensive Care at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. We chose this place as it was within walking distance of the hospital and we didn't have a car. Ted Baigan, the owner, kept promising us 'two lovely rooms' there, but instead kept putting us up in...

We booked into Aaron Lodge like many before us because of an early hospital appointment at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. When I booked, I mentioned that we may be arriving late. Dot called me to confirm a time, and when I asked for a taxi number to book to take us to the hospital in the morning she offered to drive... More

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at this lovely lodge tucked away on the outskirts of the city - we drove it each day and it took about 10-15 min. On arrival we greeted by the owner and shown to our room. The room was very big and well equipped, but the best thing was the super kingsize bed,... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel in January I was really impressed with the surroundings. I have stayed in 4 & 5 star places but this is by far the best. The rooms are extremely well equipped with hairdryer bath robes and slippers. The shower was excellent and fully equipped. The breakfast was cooked to your liking... More

Stayed for 2 nights 24th and 25th Jan 2015. Nice little place, breakfast was early which is good for sightseeing. Very cold on the first night, mentioned it to the owner at breakfast and another heater was put in my room. Not much in the immediate area, on a bus route into Edinburgh (had car with me).Plan in advance for... More

Booked here because had an appointment at ERI and wanted to go through and stay over to avoid stress of travelling on the day. Everything was absolutely fine with the room and the breakfast. The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly and the additional requests we made were granted with no problem which made our visit easier and... More

I had an appointment in the hospital to get an operation and reserved a room at Aaron Lodge for my parents, because it is just five minutes from the Royal Infirmary. I was sent home one night earlier than I thought, so I asked at the hotel if I could get a room. Despite there were no rooms available, they... More
