Booked the guest house after reading the reviews on trip advisor . Was very disappointed , although the stay wasn't unpleasant , the accommodation was dated and of a poor standard . Breakfast was adequate but within an hour and half service from 8 -9:30 .

Averon Guest house has it all. From the beautiful exterior to the exquisite interior. The only hard time I had during my stay was to work out how much tasty breakfast I could squeeze in to my belly before heading off to a days adventure discovering all of what Edinburgh has to offer, and all reached so easily by foot...

A really nice guest house, with an amazing breakfast and the best Scottish porridge! Clean and cozy rooms, nice atmosphere and staff. Some single rooms have a shared bathroom but that was no problem at all. Free Wifi, TV and towels are provided. 15 min walk maximum to the city center and a good price- quality range makes it perfect...

A very good place to spend a few days. The room is quiet, the breakfast is good and the beds are very comfortable. The staff is very attentive and correct. A very pleasant stay in a very beautiful city.

The heater wasn't the best one so sometimes the room was a little bit cold. The first morning the shower only had cold water as they've forgotten to turn it on... and it took 30 minutes to go back to normal hot when we advised them. It's pet friendly and the smell was a little bit weird as just in...

Spent 4 nights here, nice staff, loved Alan Cran's songs, close to the city centre. Good breakfast, room was a little bit small, but everything you need was there. We had a good time and wouldn't hesitate to advice this B&B.

Very clean, very friendly staff. Great place to stay. Came here on a business trip and was thoroughly happy with everything. Parking and breakfast was very handy too. The owner even let us leave the car there for a few extra hours after check out.

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.
