Stayed with a group of friends. 10 mins walk from Haymarket station. House itself quiet (set back from main road). Had 2 x family rooms. Whilst quite cosy in size - they were clean and warm. Comfy beds. Small bathroom within the room (ie constructed in the corner) with shower etc. Again clean with a good range of toiletries. The... More

As a solo traveller I was very very kindly welcomed at the Dothus Lodge by the owner and his affective 8 month (in june 2014) Bulldog Archie (which will become your friend if you are up to). Very good breakfast and absolute clean place. The house is very good looking and not far from the Tram and Bus connections which... More

Duthus Lodge was the perfect stay for Hogmanay in Edinburgh. Perfect location just outside the festive hustle and bustle but not too far to make your way there so easily (10-12 minutes walk to Princes Street and 5 mins by bus just outside the lodge). We were greeted in typically Scottish friendly and humorous fashion, and welcomed in a beautiful... More

Location was not to far from airport and downtown areas. The room was spacious, food was very good and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh. Perfect weather. We enjoyed the whiskey tasting, castle tour as well as a countryside tour. Road noise was a bit on the loud side. but I would... More

The room and owner are excellent.The bathroom is a bit tiny, thus 4 for the room. Not enough parking space in their parking, but during the weekend can park for free on the street. breakfast also delicious an "scotish" aka english breakfast. Would gladly come back on next passing through Edinburgh.

I suspect this was recently decorated as our room and dining room were beautifully presented. We had two double beds for two teenagers and two adults and a small en-suite. We walked (15 min) into the festival events leaving the car in the parking area behind the house. The tramway roadworks make it challenging to navigate so have a map... More

On our arrival at Duthus Lodge we were warmly greeted By Murdo the owner who was such a lovely man. He showed us to our spotlessly clean room and was so informative about the local area. The breakfasts were superb. Plenty of choice and cooked to perfection. Nothing during our stay could be complained about and if you are traveling... More

Hosts Murdo and Kay made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible. They were very informative and knowledgeable of Edinburgh and Scotland in general. Their advice was put to good use. Ask Murdo where the best smoked salmon comes from :) Breakfast was great, rooms and the whole of the... More
