We stayed here for two nights recently and it was great for us. We were able to get parking outside on the street, which is a quiet residential street so you are not too worried about the safety of your car. I thought the rooms were quite generous for a city hotel, and the bed was massive!! There was a... More

My father and I traveled to Edinburgh over the last ten days and stayed at the Ceilidh-Donia twice--once for five nights and again for two (book-ending a short excursion to the Highlands). I was utterly charmed by this wonderful little hotel and its warm, generous (and quite witty) owners. I spent quite a bit of time after the day's journeys,... More

We were incredibly fortunate to follow the Trip ADvisor ratings and book this place. Room had a nice king bed ( we are very tall folks ) and the B&B itself is well kept and interesting. The room rate was the most reasonable of our interior trip too! The owner at the little bar/ registration is interested in you and... More

We were delighted with this gem of a small hotel. NB: it is NOT in the center of town, so if you want nightlife and the rush of staying in the center, find someplace else. But if you want a clean, charming room with a new bed, comfortable mattress, modern bathroom, giant and varied breakfast included, and owners who go... More

The location is perfect- 10 mins on the bus to thecity centre, but quiet, residential setting to escape to.I had room 9 which is a single. It is on the top floor and lovely views over the garden and was so... More

Great location, Great breakfast and a Great value! Loved the service! Annette was very helpful with directions and went above and beyond by preparing sack lunches for us on a day that we left prior to the restaurant opening. Would go back!

This was a great stay in a comfortable and clean room. People are very friendly and are happy to help you with everything and the breakfast has plenty of choices and is freshy made. The only downside of this hotel is the location. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get to the centre by walk and you get pretty tired... More

I usually don't write reviews but I had to for this one. Me and my brother stayed over for a night and it was one of the best places I've stayed at. The owners were super nice and helpful.
