      Feel Good Factor, probably the best guest house in Edinburgh.

      from

      My daughter was to stay overnight for tests at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and this guest house is just a few hundred yards away. I telephoned and the proprietor told me that I would not be disappointed, far from it, in fact I was very impressed! Lovely, friendly welcome when the proprietor (Father Ted, or Super Ted) came out and carried my bags and showed me to my room. The room was very large with a huge bed and large widescreen tv mounted on the wall opposite the bed, with freeview and sky sports. It was beautifully furnished with plenty of lighting, I counted 3 large table lamps and a standard lamp, plus spotlights in the celing.

      The whole guest house is spotlessly clean and I could not find a single fault. The contemporary ensuite, has a wonderful shower with complimentary toiletries and lovely soft white towels. In the room there was a complimentary bottle of water and tin of sweets, also a box of tissues. The pillows were plump and soft. The room was so lovely that I decided to have a shower, watch tv and relax instead of going out.

      Next morning I went down to the breakfast room at 8am and the choice was excellent, with porridge, cereal, 3 kinds of fruit juice, fruit, croissants and pain au chocolate, as well as perfectly cooked bacon, scrambled eggs, tomatoes and lots of toast, with individual butter, marmalade and jam pots, also a choice of tea and coffee. I was instructed to have as much to eat as I wanted and that I should help myself to more - Most Excellent.

      I initially went there because of its proximity to the hospital, but I will stay there the next time I go to Edinburgh for any reason. I will probably leave my car in their carpark as the proprietor told me that it was only 6 minutes by bus to the town centre and that there are plenty of buses. Ted is very proud of his guest house, and quite rightly so, it is beautiful and I cannot recommend this guest house highly enough. l will be back, thank you very much. Jaki (artist), Aberdeen.

      So good

      from

      Where to start with this when l don't know how much space l have,so here l go.l came to this B&B under difficult circumstances namely my mum going to hospital,so yes the the accommodation is to a very high standard with lovely food great table service and a mega honesty bar all set in lovely surroundings with easy quick access to the city centre, hospital and some fantastic historical buildings.I know these things are important but for myself and my family it was Ted,the proprietor and his family that made everything so easy and good for me they could not have done enough for us,nothing was to much trouble that is why l am going back for a third time since my first stay in December.I am not one for reviews but l have been so touched by these wonderful people that l had to put fingers to keys and get typing. What a great place to stay and the only place for me in Edinburgh.

      We visited Aaron Lodge in April booking 3 rooms. Each room was identical in decore and amenities - each lovely and maintained to a very high standard. The big screen telly fitted in nicely with the king sized bed and luxurious very modern bathroom and shower. Ted and family, the proprietors, were extremely welcoming and helpful. Large breakfast room nicely decorated complete with table linens and extensive breakfast offerings of good quality. Only problem here being breakfast served only between 8-8:30. Honesty bar and comfortable guest lounge was nice after a busy day. Parking is tight but bus stops frequently almost outside the door. Very good value for money!

      Aaron Lodge "A Great B&B Experience"

      Reviews:Nesha & Joe-Rm.#10- April 8,2008-New York

      We recently returned from Edinburgh and we are still talking about our stay at the Aaron Lounge.We originally booked with the arden house next door but was rudely turned away claiming that they had no vacancies.Their loss was our gain.Very bad business arden house!!! We were greeted very warmly by the owner of the Aaron Lodge,a gentleman named Ted who showed us around and accomodated us.We then received a warm and friendly welcome from Ted's wife and family.The price of the rooms are very reasonable and affordable.The roooms were very clean, nice & fairly large size.Included was a king size bed,large flat screen telly,big bathroom with great shower and a very cozy front lounge where tea,coffee and bisquits were served.My wife & I looked forward to the very nice variety homestyle breakfast buffet in which Ted& family were very attentive & accomodating.Most of all was the warmth, friendliness, attentiveness and the gracious family feeling we had with our stay!! To summarize,the Aaron Lounge in Edinburgh Scotland is A Must See!!Way to go mate'!!!! You really made our holiday!!!!Thank you very much!!!See you again!!!

      Brilliant for Edinburgh

      from

      This lodge is very well placed for exploring Edinburgh . You can leave the car in the carpark and get the bus , 33 or 49 from just outside the accomodation into the city centre. 2.50 buys a bus day ticket for a frequent service.

      The rooms were spotless and the hospitality fantastic. Such a refreshing change from bigger hotels and with free tea and coffee available in the conservatory , its second to none in our opinion. Breakfast was good too , and with the owners on hand , advice on where to go and what to do is very helpfull to newcomers to this wonderfull city .

      Kind thoughts and best wishes to the proprieters and thank you for making our stay memorable.

      The Aaron Lodge Is A Greast Place to Stay

      from

      I am relatively new to staying at bed and breakfast establishments... if the Aaron Lodge Bed and Breakfast is my benchmark for judging future lodging facilities, all others will have to work very hard to meet the standard set by this B&B.

      Staying at the Aaron Lodge is like staying a a luxury hotel. Rooms are equiped with king size beds and giant televisions. They are decorated with excellent style creating a relaxing atmosphere. Bathrooms are impressive... walk-in showers, squeeky clean facilities in excellent condition and ample in size.

      The hosts of Aaron Lodge could not be more friendly. They even remembered my name when greeting me. Breakfast was a mixture of choices to meet just about everyone's taste.

      I'll be staying here whenever I return to Edinburgh!

      Aaron Lodge bed & breakfast of Scotland

      from

      Located just a few short miles from the center of Edinburgh, Scotland, the Aaron Lodge is easy to find and directly on a bus line to the city. There is no need to drive your car. Just park and ride the bus. Within walking distance of one of Scotland's most preserved castles (Craigmiller Castle). The lodgings are new, clean and modern. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Prices are reasonable and inline with other B & B's of lesser quality.

      Highly recommended.

      Satisfactory experience

      from

      This is a small B &B located at the end of Old Dalkieth Road near the Royal Infirmry. We stayed for 4 days. The rooms were clean and adequate in size and nicely decorated. Ensuite facilities with the bathroom nice and large. Room facilites include TV, heating, tea & coffee making, hairdryer, clock. Comfortable beds.

      For break fast they provide a cooked and a buffet option, both quite good. Breakfast timings are 7 to 8 AM strictly. The owners were very friendly and nice.

      Neighborhood is totally residential and quiet and safe. The rooms were 55 per night double bed.

      Problem was that they don't have telephones in the rooms so contacting and giving messages is a problem which must be through the owner. Also the B & B is located a bit far from the city center and there aren't any eateries or shops nearby for which you have to go to the city center. Though Edinburgh is a small place and there is a bus stop in front of it with buses for the city center every 10 min it is a bother at times.

      They accept payments by credit card but charge extra 2.

      Overall was a satisfactory place except the location being a bit far of from the city center.

      Need a good B & B

      from

      If you are looking for a good Bed & Breakfast in Edinburgh i would recommend the Aeon Kirlands B & B in Old Dalkeith Road. The proprietors Dot and Ted are very welcoming and make you feel at home. The bedrooms are very clean all have en-suites and TV. Although the B & B is situated about 20 mins out of the city centre there is a bus stop situated just outside the guest house and the buses run every 10 mins, the cheapest ticket to buy is a day ticket at 2.30 you can then hop on and off buses all day upto midnight. The only downside is that it is in a very quiet area with no resturants or pubs nearby. I would definitley recommend this B & B to other people.

      Our early morning wake up in London bid farewell in the most typical of English fashion, cold, grey and wet.

      Getting to the airport we checked in and grabbed a bite to eat before jetting off on our short connection to the land of red hair, kilts and haggis.

It was built on another extinct volcano and must had been a menacing sight for intruders as it towers over the city.

We were all pleasantly surprised when we arrived at our two bedroom, two bath apartment. It was modern, comfortable and elegant, and was located right next to Holyrood Park, which would come in handy for our morning runs. We unpacked, settled in, walked around the corner to buy a few groceries, and found a nice ...
