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

Stayed at Kildonan Lodge Hotel for a weekend getaway with friends and was really impressed with the place.. Such a beautiful, classic and grand building and the facilities were fantastic.. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The location is also ideal as transport is just outside straight into Edinburgh city centre. The staff were all lovely, helpful and welcoming.... More

Kildonan Lodge has easy access to the centre of Edinburgh and to all the attractions. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the rooms warm and comfortable. The daily "sherry and shortbread" was a novel idea.The people running the hotel were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The only downside we think is the shortage of storage space...

Stayed here for 2 nights in black watch room (8). Lovely, spacious room and very comfy bed. Bathroom small with shower only but well appointed. Only downside is nowhere to put shampoo/soap etc whilst in shower. Breakfast excellent quality as usual. Great value and hospitality as ever.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend whilst visiting our daughter who attends Edinburgh University. The room was small but had everything we could possibly have wanted, including free sherry and shortbread! It was spotlessly clean, and the bed was very comfortable.
