My wife and I stayed at the Ceilidh-Donia for 8 days in February 2015. It is a metro hotel, so it doesn't serve lunch or dinner. However, the breakfasts were great and very nicely served. Our room was comfortable and serviced each day with attention paid to details - even cotton buds were provided in our beautifully warm bathroom.The staff... More

We stayed here for three nights on a trip to Edinburgh. We found the hotel comfortable and welcoming. Tomas and his staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great, plenty of choice and well cooked, even heard the chef singing! The hotel is close enough to the city centre, 10 minute bus ride but situated in a quiet... More

Fantastic boutique hotel 15minutes from Edingburgh City Centre with great transport links, the hotel was based in a residential area, this hotel was spotless and the staff very friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this hotel and when we return to Edinburgh we would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed here for three nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean, we really enjoyed the shower and the nice clean and soft towels. The mattress was a bit hard (we're not used to a spring mattress). No traffic noice or what so ever during the night. Breakfast was also fantastic, freshly prepared. We... More

We stayed for a couple of nights to celebrate our anniversary and couldn't have picked a better place! So easy to get in to the city centre 10mins away on the bus - easily walkable too about 30mins away. Room 12 was fantastic with stunning views over Albert's seat. The breakfast was wonderful. The hosts were lovely too. Wouldn't hesitate... More

Staff were very friendly. Room was very nice. Bed and bedding was comfortable. Shower was excellent - if a bit noisy for neighbours. Very helpful pre-labelled map upon arrival. Good choice at breakfast, cooked options were very nice and well presented.

This lovely hotel is an excellent choice for exploring Edinburgh. Very well served by a number of bus routes, its an easy 10 minute ride to the city centre (or a 30 minute stroll if you're feeling more adventurous). The hotel itself is clean and comfortable with decent sized rooms and very friendly staff. The owners try really hard to... More

Nice and clean hotel, especially the rooms was nice, friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Quiet area and quiet room apart from the annoying noise from the showers in the neighbouring rooms in the morning.
