the breakfast provided and the cleanliness of the room was very good. the bathroom was too small and uncomfortable.
Excellent breakfast, in variety and quality , and in service.
Very good location for the price. Room was functional, very quiet and comfortable enough for a short stay.
Uncomplicated, easy accommodation, lovely location in Edinburgh, room very cleqan and comfortable, breakfast was 1st class! Only comment is the tiny space in en suite but it has everything you need so cannot really complain. Not for faint hearted physically as is on 4th floor with no lift - lots of steps!
Cheap, City accom'. Short walk to center/station. Small, no minuscule, sink with a shelf 12" over the top. You will at some stage bounce your head off the shelf. Easily sorted if shelf moved to left hand side wall.
Clean, bright, neutral decor, lovely breakfast Very cramped bathroom, tv in awkward location...better directly opposite the bed, storage heater a bit intermittant
Clean room/bedding - decent breakfast. No lift or parking
Cleanliness On arrival not told about requesting extras for room, such as hairdryer, which leads to difficulties when the discovery is made after having a shower.
Economical - for what it is good value. Breakfasts very good. Plenty of places to eat nearby in the evening. Washbasin bathroom too small and the use of the whole bathroom as the shower cubicle a bit daunting
its distance from the city center no lift and no staff to help us with baggages, too much noise during night, bad bathroom facilities, dirty bed sheets, high price in relation to its value
We had a wonderful time in Edinburgh and Averon was a great addition to the stay. It was great that we could leave our car there and just walk into the town and to the castle. We had a lovely time, and we actually got engaged while we were staying there! No, it was great
central location car parking available no hairdryer in room had to hold shower button to get constant flow of hot water
Very friendly and accomodative staff. They helped change us to different room, refunded our money for not staying an extra day due to bad weather.Good walking location to the city. Nothing in specific. May be improvement in heating facility during bad cold days.
The hotel is quite close to the city. Breakfast was nice especially the sausages. Our upstairs room was very basic but I saw one downstairs that looked lovely with a wooden beam and fire place. Entertainment by the member of staff who can't speak English is good, so long as you aren't trying to find something out that you really need to know. You can't actually get cross with him though cos he just keeps smiling and nodding and repeating what you say!!! Manuel from Fawlty Towers springs to mind! Would stay again, if we had to but would prefer not to given the choice. Very basic room, first night didnt even have a bar of soap altho one appeared the following day - no shampoo or the like so don't forget it and as someone else pointed out, no hair dryer. Bed was very uncomfortable until we realised the mattress just needed turned round so slept in it top to tail instead!!
The breakfast was abundant and well presented. The choice was very good. The road where it is situated is quiet but very well-connected by public transport. The room in which I was had all the amenities but they were well used. Maybe the room needed some tlc.
I liked the location and the general manager was very helpful throughout my stay the bed was really comfy and the bathroom facilities were excellent. I thought the room was very cold at night maybe the room could do with another radiator/heater in the winter months.
Great service and enormous room!!! The shower could be improved
The hotel was lovely and warm, beds comfortable and in a great location. Could probably do with a bit TLC but overall good.
The manageress is an absolute star. She is the reason that we will be returning later this year. The breakfasts were really good. The location was bang on. 5 mins from the train station. 1 min from the bus station . Shopping centre 2 mins away. All the restraunts you could want near by. And a totally silent nights sleep in the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in. Beware the missing hotel sign. Not a problem, just knock loudly.
Hotel very central and staff really nice and friendly
It has a fantastic location, right in the heart of Edinburgh. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the hotel is nice and clean. Recommended to all.
Helpful and friendly staff. Perfectly situated. Stonethrow away from Central bus station and main attractions.
The hotel is very central, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. You get great value for the price.
it was on a main road so was extremely noisey at all times evening during the night. i would recommend this hotel but take a good pair of earplugs to block out the noise of the traffic
A superb location, huge bedroom and excellent generous breakfasts. Very friendly staff especially when welcomed at Reception. Our bedroom faced a busy main road which at times hindered a good night's sleep.
Awesome shower! Wished the floors had been vacuumed a little more thoroughly.
Clean stylish rooms with good fixtures and furnishings. When moving large baggage entrances and hallways could be cramped. The bathroom was very small. The shower temperature controls were difficult to use I had trouble getting a temperature that was warm without being near scalding.
They are very good people which gives you integer impression in all. The room was clean and prepared very well. There are some small technical details missing or not placed well. I understand the owner what he wants, only he don't get to the details in some area's. I wouldn't describe it as a hotel, more like a B&B.
The staff members and the location of the hotel.
The location suited us because we were attending a Ruby wedding celebration nearby. Also, the owner was friendly and helpful. Lack of en suite facilities
Cleanliness was unbeatable Only bad point was shared bathroom and toilet. We new this before we went
Nothing The worst about the hotel was a room in the basement right next to the laundry room. The heat and noise was to much!!! And when we asked could we be moved the owner told us no even though I booked the hotel eight months ago!!!
hotel smelt funny, walls very thin, very dated decor
Quiet room, very nice staff, good location Shared bathrooms
The staff was pleasant. One toilet for five rooms is simply not enough. The room was too small.
it was by the bustop the price u pay for the room is too much....the room is ancient and the shower room which was on the landing was tiny....the breakfast was appauling too, i suggest if your hungry go to mac ds...in fact at £65 per nite pp is far to much for the place.wouldnt reccomend
the breakfasts were good and filling and the rooms tidy. nothing but i would not class it as a hotel.
Handy for buses into city centre.
nothing. the 2% fee for paying by credit card was the final straw. the room was small, grotty and I would get wetter standing in the rain than in this shower. all in all a poor hotel. breakfast was poor quality and service left a lot to be desired.
it was central with good bus links and you could walk easily to the city centre the service
free WiFi good location friendly staff breakfast time from 7:45. If you go on a whole day trip, this is too late. small room
Location Breakfast a bit scanty (1 sausage, no bacon etc) and the room needed serious update
The best thing during my stay was how helpful and friendly the staff were, they made me feel really welcomed.
Large room, comfortable for a family with almost adult 2 children. It is a bit farer from the city center than I thought, but it wasn't a huge problem.
the friendly staff and the short distance to town. its the perfect distance away to walk after having a big dinner! the double bed was a tiny bit small but it was very comfortable!
location cleanness, breakfast was rubbish and sometimes no milk, etc. rooms not cleaned the whole week i stayed there, we run out of toilet tissue,
Very good location and friendly staff.
Very good location, I actually liked the fact nobody was sitting on reception waiting for you to arrive, just simple no fuss room and stay. The WiFi took a while to connect at first, but once connected was fine.
very convenient location for visiting the city centre sites with on site parking a bus stops close by. clean room with comfy beds we stayed in one of the basement rooms, where the fire exit signs directed us to the only fire escape door on that floor, which was bolted with old mattresses stacked infront of it
I was made very welcolm had nice comfy room good location and very good value for money nothing i was very pleased with the place
Owner were good. Shower power wasn't strong enough.
Leaving This was possibly the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. We arrived to a flooded room which was being dried out with a storage heater leaving a pungent aroma throughout the basement floor. We were not offered any discount price or compensation.
Room was freezing cold as heating did not work in the evening and during the night. Also, no hot water in the shower.
Nothing I did not want to stay as it was dirty, no clean towels, no pilloe cases. bad service. by far the worst place i have ever stayed in. i will be contacting the trading standards. i did not want to stay or pay however they told me as i did not cancel within 3 days i would be charged.
Friendly staff Several niggly things in room were annoying - very weak shower, faulty plug, poor TV reception, drawers placed so they couldnt be opened. Breakfast selection limited and less than average quality
Clean, friendly. Good food No bath
The location of the hotel was very central to the city and outlying areas. We liked the casualness and friendly atmosphere. The hotel was clean and the gardens were beautiful. (And, we loved Brachen.)
A clean and welcoming lodge and an incredibly warm & friendly host. The b&b was a relaxing respite from our busy holiday.
The service was exceptional and the owners were lovely. Had a wonderful time! No.
very friendly and welcoming. beautifully appointed rooms, comfortable and relaxing. excellent breakfast. All in all a fantastic place to stay
Friendly staff, cleanliness and attention to detail Bathroom rather small
Friendly staff, very welcoming, exellent breakfast and clean rooms. Just the right distance for us to walk to and from the centre. None - other than the dog if you're allergic to dogs as my husband is. Might have been helpful to mention that the owners have a (well controlled) dog on the website as although we really enjoyed our staff and the hotel was spotless he suffered an allergic reaction and had to to take medication for this.
Good food , clean accomodation Room was cold , information about the hotel was non-existent and proprietor was poor at communication (E.G. we thught he was guest on arrival !) and because heating wasa not on before our arrival we spend the afternoon under the duvet before getting ready to go out in the evening.
Very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast. Perfect location for a visit to Edinburgh. Nothing.
Location of bus stops for easy,quick and cheap access to Edinburgh. Breakfast room was cosy and cooked breakfast was good. Owners very friendly and helpful. Room had a sky light window, no view.
Comfort and ease of access to edinburgh
everything, specially Kathy, the owner. She was very nice and helpful.
friendly and clean
Clean, comfortable, friendly and a nice walk into the centre
Our room rate was adjusted to reflect the comfort level of the room. Due to a snag with the system there was no heating or hot water in our second floor room. The stairs to the second floor were difficult.
A very nice stay! Decent sized room and a very comfortable bed. The flat screen TV was a nice surprise as well. Nice breakfast. When traveling into the city center, recommend the use of the city bus system. There is a bus stop across the street from the hotel, very easy to get around. None
Warm friendly service
Welcoming atmosphere, hospitable hosts, very comfortable rooms and fantastic breakfasts. Looking forward to our next stay. Nothing
From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. The food and accomadation were all very good quality and we were made to feel very welcome during our stay There were no negative aspects of our stay
Easy access to town centre and car parking availability
