Stayed for 3 nights and can unreservedly recommend the experience. Friendly welcome, efficient service, clean room (with excellent shower) and good breakfasts - can particularly vouch for the kippers. Also has an intimate bar for a pre or post dinner drink. Convenient for walking into centre of Edinburgh (25/30 minutes) or picking up regular bus services into the city. Friendly... More

Very good value for a pleasant if slightly "quirky" hotel. Very well situated in a lovely part of Edinburgh. We received a very warm welcome and found the room to be spotlessly clean and well equipped. Breakfast was great - our only negative being the lack of a lift!

We chose this hotel from the Trip Advisor recommendations and it didn't disappoint. An excellent breakfast every morning , served by attentive and cheery staff set us up for the day. Our room was nicely appointed and clean and the management were helpful without being intrusive. We would definitely return!!

Dear Revieweee Many Moons of thanks for a Fabby Review of the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia, which is in fact two different words that being a would be Poet and Scottish I assumed that I had the right to put them together.

It just does what it says on the box. And the price is very reasonable. And breakfast included. Clean, efficient, professional and quiet. Definitely I will come back. It was a single bedroom for me this time, but everything was on its place: TV, tea & coffee + cookies, hair dryer and all the other things you would expect from... More

Everything about this hotel and its owners, Annette & Maxx, was excellent. We had a disabled room (my husband is disabled) and it was very well laid out and the bathroom was very good - not all 'disabled' bathrooms are actually suitable for disabled people! Very varied breakfasts, all excellent and tasty. Nothing was too much trouble, Annette suggested places... More

This place is AWESOME! First of all, I've never had as good hotel breakfast anywhere as here. You can choose from a variety of breakfast dishes from the menu and they're all delicious. I can't believe breakfast was included in the price! The room was tidy and spacious and the view to Arthur's Seat we got from our window was... More

I stayed for a couple of nights a couple of weeks ago in a double room and would stay again for sure. If you're into swinging cats in bathrooms you're out of luck here but the shower's powerful and the soap they have makes you feel classy.
