We stayed here for 3 nights while exploring Edinburgh, and highly recommend this hotel. The room was clean and of adequate size, and the bed was comfortable although a bit squeeky. The breakfast each morning was especially excellent. The hotel is located in a quiet residential neighborhood away from the city centre, but we found it easy and inexpensive to... More

Nice cozy little place in a residential setting. Room was lovely and clean. Bathroom was modern with a fabulous shower. Bed was aged and squeaky. Stairwell was a little steep so one had to be very careful. Close to bus stop. Easy to catch and get down to Royal Mile, under 10 minutes. Breakfast included was choice of hot or... More

Lovely break for my birthday this February staff very helpful and friendly. Room a decent size and bathroom nice. Good distance from city centre which is easily accessible by short bus route.Would recommend Edinburgh Castle and the ghost tour if you are feeling brave! 😱👻

The Hotel Ceilidh-Donia was the first place we stayed on arriving in Scotland. Our room was tastefully decorated, very clean, and the beds were quite comfy. We enjoyed the sweet treats that were left with our coffee/tea service each day (this was something that many UK hotels used to do a few years ago but stopped doing). The bathrooms were... More

Really good location, very peaceful but with great bus access to the city, also within walking distance. Street parking outside the hotel for free. Room had loads of space and a very big bed, all the facilities were good although WiFi was weak. All round good hotel with easy access, good facilities and lovely people looking after you.

Thomas and his team ensured our stay was a great one at this bed and breakfast tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood. Thomas answered every query we had upon arrival without any is us uttering a question- he was so prepared with maps, transit, attractions and pub advice, even landscapes to watch for when returning by bus. Breakfast was very... More

The room and bathroom were spacious and very well equipped. I loved the power shower: even better than mine at home. The decor was modern and there were plenty of coffee/tea options in the room. Perhaps a few more biscuits would be useful.

The walls of this hotel are very thin. We could clearly hear people using the toilet in the adjacent room in very high detail. It was a very unpleasant experience. The bed in our room was abysmal, it made very loud noises even from the slightest of movements. The location of the hotel is very far from the center, and... More

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. First of all, I hope you understand that it's peak season in Edinburgh from Jun onwards up to the end of August. I would say that our rates are reasonable for what we are proving. Well, I believe there are surely other cheaper B&B in the town but again you get what you... More

Extremely handy location close to the sports club, our venue for an evening reunion. We had the room close to the front door, fascinating lighting and well furnished but guests leaving early meant we were woken by the chatter and then the door being closed. Breakfast was superb and host extremely helpful with printing our aeroplane boarding passes.
