Averon guest house has two main points of strenght, in my opinion: its position, just out of the city centre (about 10-15 minutes on foot after you have avoided the risk of getting lost) and its very local and typical looks. It's a cottage in a street of cottages, forniture is very simple and classic, the bedroom had even a...

Location is not so bad but rooms are not definetly the best. Duvets weren't clean and they smelled some ladies perfume. But the worst was about the breakfast because it is always served from 8h to 10h. Our tour started at 8h so we asked if we could take it before and we received a negative response. What is worst...

Easy to find just off main road into Edinburgh. Cosy room. Friendly staff. Super breakfast. Easy walking distance to city centre and nightlife. Parking is a great bonus and you can arrive at the car park early and depart later in the day.

The house is very nice, it still keeps an antique touch but the facilities are comfortable and modern. Our room was very clean and spacious. Staff was always helpful and really friendly. The breakfast included was actually very good and they are very keen to offer you different options according to your dietary requirements.

The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. We especially liked the evening musical entertainment provided by our lovely host. We learned a lot about Scotland from the lovely songs that he sings which are also accompanied with lots of photos. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Averon guest house.

Very good location as its just 5-7 min walk from the centre. Nice spacious clean room. Breakfast and parking included. Very friendly stuff. Spent a lovely evening with the host who sang local songs for us. Don't think anyone could wish for anything more from a B&B. Overall great choice.

Room was very comfortable and I was provided with a lot of extra pillows. It has every a hotel room provides. Facilities were slightly old but nonetheless serve their purposes well. Bathroom was clean and hot water was also available. The highlight of my one week stay is Mr. Alan's Scottish Music Performance. Guests around this house gathered at night...

We enjoyed the traditional Scottish breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The evening live music and storytelling were quite enjoyable. Parking is available and we were an easy walk to whatever we visited. Great time!

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
