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.

We stumbled upon Averon Guest House on a well-known hotel booking website because we absolutely needed a parking with our room and there it was: parking included, big room for the whole family and location seemed reasonably close to city centre. Once there, it turns out location

By accident someone has slept in my bed!?!?
"If you are unable to book a campsite during travelling with a motorhome, I highly recommend to go to Averon house."
"Good location, not far from many of the atractions of Edinburgh. Very helpful and nice stuff. Excellent music evening with mr. Alan Cran."
"Very central and comfortable. You can walk to almost everything."
"Not all rooms have a shower."
"I saw some rooms labeled "bathroom" so suspect that not all rooms have en suite, therefore worth asking when booking"
