We stayed here last weekend at a cost of £85 per night for two nights, it is fair to say that it was worth every penny.

We were greeted by the owner Carolyn who welcomed us in, asked us how we were, asked what we were up to and offered to search the times of the next bus into town for us - you don't get that at a Travelodge!

We were in room 3 in the main building (there's an annex at the back with two further rooms/apartments), which was well apportioned and decorated. The entire house was very well presented in fact.

In the room, in addition to the flat screen TV and comfy bed were nice little touches, a tea tray with the largest selection of drinks I've ever seen (9 to be precise) complete with KitKat if you're a bit peckish in the night! Also they have their own Scottish Tablets made for them which are in the room when you arrive - again a nice little touch.

Aaron Glen runs an honesty bar, which means you go down and help yourself, mark down what you've had and pay it when you pay up - the selection of malts (if you like that sort of thing is large). It just sums up what this place is about down to earth yet covers everything you want.

The breakfast in the morning, well what can you say, it's seldom I find myself struggling to finish, but it was just that for me here - I found I didn't need to eat until evening it was that large and also very tasty.

The location may make some people think twice about staying here - but there's a 24 hour bus service to/from the City Centre, free parking on site and it's just off the Ring Road for a quick getaway, so unless you're the sort of person that has to stay on Princes Street, then I urge you to consider this place.

Whilst we stayed here, there were couples, a few workmen, families and the odd single person, so it really does cater for all travellers, and all the staff here are really personable and go out of their way to see if there is anything else that they can do to make your stay even more pleasurable that what it is.

I have stayed in four hotels and guest houses in Edinburgh and this is easily the best, if I could pick this guest house up and drop it wherever I wanted to go, I would!

If you travel extensively and long for a place to stay that pleasantly surprises you, then stay here. Genuine people offering a delightfully relaxed hospitality of a standard that is not too formal. Some lovely small touches that those who travel regularly will enjoy.

I am reluctant to say too much because I won't be able to get a room next time I am in Edinburgh.

A prefect location if you are visiting Rosslyn Chapel

We have not long checked in to the Aaron Glen Guesthouse but thought we should write a review on our thoughts so far :)

We were greeted by one of the owners Carolyn who was very pleasant and informative about where to get buses etc into the city centre.

There is a bar and kitchen in the main house where you can help yourself to milk and alcoholic drinks. They are very trusting as you just write what you have taken on a postit.......and the prices haven't increased in 15 years!!

We are staying in one of the apartments to the rear of the main house and we are very pleasantly surprised. The room is very good size with a double bed and a single bed. There is a flat screen tv, iPod docking station and tea and coffee making facilities. There is also wine glasses and a corkscrew which I thought was a nice touch :) The bathroom is quite big with a large sink and shower and very clean!!

There is seating areas outside and if it was a nice day you could sit out, relax and have a drink in the sun.

Definately a good base if you wanted to explore the city centre and for the money you really can't complain! ......also free parking!

Enjoy your stay :D

We stayed here for one night for a dog agility show in Edinburgh. The location is excellent, just off the Bypass at the Straiton Junction and easy to get to once you've negotiated the roundabouts at Ikea! Our host gave us a spacious room as we had two small dogs and a small crate. The room was very well appointed and the bed was very comfortable and the shower was good. The bar was excellent - reasonable prices and well stocked. We couldn't sample the hot breakfast as we were leaving early but the "cold" breakfast was very, very good.

We were very impressed with this B&B and would definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Edinburgh and the surrounding area and also for dog owners too.
