          Terrible home stay in Edinburgh not worth the money! Bathroom was at other end of guest house and shower didn't even work. Room was right by the front door as well so you could hear noise from people coming in and out. Wouldn't reccomend.

          Our room was very next to the front door and to the breakfast area. It was very noise. We had a room without restroom and we knew that, but what we had to use was the other side of the building. Other hand, the staff was kind and the owner's Scottish music night was quit nice.

          The staff was very friendly and helpful and there was music in the evenings. The breakfast was wonderful because it was more than just pastries. It was nice to order a breakfast of real eggs, bacon, toast, etc. I’ve slept in better beds but it was a quaint and nostalgic bed-and-breakfast.

          great stay”

          Staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is convenient and there is parking

          Our stay was great because they managed to sort out a problem caused by the inefficiency of agoda. We have stayed at the Averon before and will stay there again. However we will never use agoda again.
