We arrived at Aynetree B&B on Saturday after a rather costly taxi of £15 from Waverly Station, however this was due to a shed load of roadworks going on in the city making the taxi ride longer. We were greeted by Brian who took our payment, gave us some information about bus routes etc. And showed us to our room. The room was clean and met our expectations.
One comment I would like to make is that to make a cup of tea we had to plug in the kettle on the floor so may I suggest running an extension lead up to the table? Wasn't such an issue as we hardly had any brews though.
We stayed in room number one. The tv is a tad on the small side for where it is positioned, I found it hard to watch from lying in bed but you don't go on holiday to watch tv, right?
The cooked Scottish breakfast each morning was good and easily kept us going till lunch. There was also a good selection of cereal and porridge on offer as well. One thing that I wasn't too keen on was the music that was played at breakfast, sort of slow classical traditional music but wasn't my cup of tea, I'd rather have the radio on but I am 24 and perhaps the more mature guest has more of an appreciation of that type of music.
The bus stop into Edinburgh is literally right outside and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get there. You get either the 113 or 44.
I think that's probably about it. I'd like to thank Brian and Anne for their hospitality and yes I would recommend this B&B to other potential visitors.
