Just returned from a long weekend at the Kildonan, excellent hotel, very well positioned, .Nothing too much trouble , evening restaurant very good also. No need for a car, £25 taxi from airport relied on buses £3.50 day ticket great value for money to go anywhere around the Edinburgh area . Will definitely re-book when returning to area

A 20 minute walk from the town centre and well served by a good bus service this little hotel is well placed. The room was a decent size with a limited t.v. service - but a t.v. lounge offered a full satellite service - crucial during an international cricket tournament. The bathroom was spacious with a bath and reasonable shower.... More

The Kildonan Lodge is the ideal hotel to explore Edinburgh from. It's on the edge of town, but that makes it easy to get to if you're driving and there's plenty of parking. There's a bus stop just a few yards from the front door and you're in the centre of town within 10 minutes. The rooms are well equipped... More

A very welcoming and comfortable hotel about 1.5 miles south of Edinburgh city centre. Very convenient both for the University Kings Buildings campus (10-15 mins walk) and for the city centre (35-40 mins walk), so for a mix of business and leisure. An ideal base when visiting Edinburgh by car (easy access from/to the city by-pass). Our room was very... More

We had an excellent stay at the Kildonan: the hotel was very good value with excellent service and very comfortable stay in a very convenient location.

I visit Edinburgh quite often and have stayed in several hotels, however I am so glad to have discovered this little gem in our capital. Impeccably clean, wonderful service and a stones throw from the bustle of Princes Street. Excellent bus service from outside the front door. Lovely touch having sherry and shortbread in our room on arrival. Will definitely... More

This was a treat from our daughter along with visits to Edinburgh Zoo and the Scottish Parliament Question Time. We could not fault this hotel on anything. Our reception at this hotel was first class as was the service from the staff!

This is our 2nd visit to the Kildonan Lodge, and it wont be our last. As soon as we walked in it felt warm cosy and inviting. The lamps were all on in the sitting room and the fire on. We had booked the same room as last year the Blackwatch room, so we knew what to expect. We were... More
