From check-in to check-out we found all of the staff to be friendly, informative and attentive. We had room 15 in the attic which, although small, was perfectly formed. The complimentary shortbread and sherry in the room was a lovely touch. The continental breakfast options were plentiful and the cooked breakfast options thoroughly enjoyable. Finally the well-stocked honesty bar with... More

I had room 1 which was a small double on lowest floor, no high ceiling like other rooms reviewed but still very modern, clean and quiet as it was at the back of house and I always like having the car in sight. There was no restaurant while I was here which was disappointing as we had to walk into... More

I can thoroughly recommend this comfortable small hotel. I had need to stay there twice recently and was met with kindness and care. The rooms are large and comfortable. There is an honesty bar in the lovely victorian lounge. Breakfast is served in a large comfortable dining room and was very good indeed. The hotel is on many bus routes... More

Our family spent four days and three nights at this simply wonderful little inn. The four of us (our kids are 9 and 12) stayed in "the family" room, which allowed us to all sleep quite comfortably. The Victorian rooms are simply gorgeous and are in great shape.The breakfasts are great, with plenty of options and great service. We had... More

We had the "Black Watch" room and it was just adorable. Small bathroom but that wasn't really a problem for us. The bed was amazing---super comfy! And of course shortbread in your room. Service was friendly and efficient, and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

I will be staying at the Kildonan again on my next visit to Edinburgh. The accommodations are lovely. The staff went above and beyond to help us and was very knowledgable. Jem even setup appointments with her daughter-in-law so we could get massages at a salon on New Years Eve. They are johnny-on-the-spot to help with any situation (including a... More

This place is truly wonderful. The people are kind and helpful in every way. The food is excellent and the hotel is beautiful. And it is very centrally located. On our previous trip to Edinburgh we stayed on the Royal mile and it was honestly no easier to get around from that location then this one and this was a... More

Stopped for 3 nights over Hogmanay and had a lovely time. We were a bit dubious about the location when we booked, but the bus services to and from the hotel were brilliant and excellent value for money. Our room was really comfortable with everything that you need for a short break. Breakfast was an excellent mix of buffet and... More

We arrived late Sunday morning and were greeted by the cheery proprietor. Our room (in the lodge - behind the main building) was well-appointed and very comfortable. Our host made sure that we knew all the busses that did and didn't run on Sunday's and weekdays, and then he loaned us proper currency for the bus because we had failed... More
