This was our 5th visit to Averon Guest House and once again we were not disappointed. Took more family members this time who equally enjoyed their stay. Warm, clean, very friendly, excellent location, great price. We will be back again next year!

A very friendly guest house with Scottish musical evenings. Comfortable room with great breakfast (loved the fireplace😀). Would certainly come again and would advise to other guests. The staff were very friendly and dressed in tartan. Super stay.

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.

Spent a few nights here. Just returned home. Unusually the Proprietor, Alan Cran entertains his guests at 9pm In the dining room with Scottish Country Songs. His staff are very friendly and respectful. Our breakfasts were good too. The AA have awarded this Guest House 3 Stars which is about right. We shouldn't hesitate to book a return visit and...

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.
