We selected Kildonan Lodge for a return stay based on a pleasant first stay and found the second round even more enjoyable. Last time we were in a charming, but small, four poster room. This time we opted for one of the refurbished exec rooms on the lower level. The executive rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The only issue... More

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Edinburgh and attending the tattoo. I had requested quiet rooms and we were allocated two rooms on the lower ground floor, on the side of the hotel where, unfortunately, there was still a lot of traffic noise. The rooms had low ceilings and small windows which, due to large trees outside, made... More

As a regular Edinburgh Fringe visitor over the years I've found accommodation can be tricky to find, pricey and quality can be lacking. That is not the case with Kildonan Lodge Hotel. Excellent room quality very clean and well equipped. A welcoming reception great help on arrival and first class breakfast provided. All together a highly recommended place to stay... More

I great place to visit and a really relaxing hotel. We were at the top of the house in a lovely room. It was quiet and made a great base for us to visit the Fringe. Breakfast is really nice......pancakes, bacon maple syrup, and kippers and porridge (so good) all made a great filler before we hit the streets to... More

Second stay here and cant fault it all. Great base for visiting the city with very good bus service right outside. No need to worry about parking charges whilst sightseeing just leave the car at the hotel jump on a bus and it will definately work out cheaper. Superb room, this time staying in the lodge at the rear of... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and were overwhelmed by how fabulous it was. Beautiful hotel, amazing four poster bed and spa bath. The bed felt like sinking luxuriously into a fluffy cloud!! Staff were all very welcoming and friendly, were there if we needed anything, but gave us total peace. Very handy for the city centre, whilst... More

We recently stayed at the Kildonan Lodge Hotel for just one night. We had been visiting friends in Fife and wanted to visit Edinburgh on our way home. We received a very friendly greeting on arrival and showed to our room which was clean and very comfortable. The sherry, shortbread and tea/coffee refreshments were a great touch. Breakfast the following... More

We stayed here for 2 nights early in June. On arrival we were please to find a small carafe of complimentary sherry in our room. There was also a facecloth in the bathroom. This gives a good idea of the attention to detail that proprietor pays to the service they provide. The accommodation and staff were excellent, as was the... More
