Returned to Scotland to visit dear friends between Christmas & New Year's day; promised our kids we would return to The Kildonan and we did! Stayed again in the wonderful Green Tartan room our first night after landing before we headed to our host family. Love the location to catch a bus downtown. Easily caught up on sleep from the...

We spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. 6 of us in a family room with four poster bed and Nan and Grandad in a standard double. Rooms were delightful - clean, comfortable with complimentary sherry (topped up every day) and shortbread biscuits. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Our older grandsons diet was well catered for at... More

We needed a hotel for one night as we were in Edinburgh for a funeral. This hotel is beautiful; well appointed and presented, very comfortable and exceptional value for money. The lovely welcome and fab lounge with 'honour' self service bar quite something. And then before we left this morning a delicious, superb breakfast. A must stay if visiting Edinburgh.... More

A real antidote to anonymous and bland chain hotels. Stayed two nights in four poster room and couldn't fault the whole experience. The lounge with its honesty bar is a real delight and the Scottish breakfast with porridge will last you the day. The staff are friendly and helpful. Probably a little far out of town to walk but the... More

We stayed for one night at the end of Jan. The hotel is beautiful both inside and out. The lounge was inviting with beautiful old Scottish character decor, a cosy fire and wonderful self serve bar. We could've rested in the lounge for hours. Our Executive room was well furnished with all the amenities needed. Bed was comfy and we... More

My colleague and I came to Edinburgh for work and booked in to stay at Kildonan Lodge for one night. The fourposter rooms are both lovely and give you plenty of space and peace and quiet. Breakfast here is really good and gluten-free bread is available if requested prior to arrival. Breakfast is included in the price and will certainly... More

Fantastic welcome on Hogmanay with free bubbly and delicious nibbles in the beautiful cosy lounge. Service excellent throughout our 5night stay. Staff very helpful, pleasant and respect guests privacy. I really enjoyed the little extra welcome of sherry and shortbread in the room. And the bonus was they both got topped up every day meaning my daily sherry was continued... More

I stayed at the Kildonan Lodge Hotel just before Christmas on a girly weekend. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous I was really impressed on arrival. It has lovely traditional decor to suit the period of the building and the whole place had very warm and comforting atmosphere. We stayed in the lodge just separate of the hotel and again everything... More
