First hand just arriving to the B&B, they were friendly & informative, no stone was left unturned, including information on local buses, restaurants, breakfast times & WIFi etc. The building is wonderful, it's all the little details that make me smile. rooms have high ceilings and an en-suite. The room is a generous size, clean and tidy with all the... More

My husband and I recently stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia. The hotel is located in a lovely residential neighborhood. There are new owners (7 months) but most of the employees are the same. Simon was very helpful with suggestions for dining options and local information. The owners were very helpful also. The breakfast menu offers many choices. It... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights over the weekend. We received the booking confirmation with useful information like ways to get to the hotel from the airport or the train station. We arrived by train from London and walked about 25 minutes to get to the hotel. The check in is one the best I've been through so... More

Checking out tomorrow but I can't wait to leave my review here. Marvellous is all I can say about this hotel! Friendly and helpful hosts, clean and comfy bedroom, delicious breakfast, nothing to complain about to be honest. Location is perfect to us. A short stroll (about 25 minutes) or 10 minutes bus ride to the town(bus stop just steps... More

An excellent base for a visit to Edinburgh. Friendly staff, great breakfast and the best decorated room we have stayed in for a while. The location, just on the south side of the Centre, was very convenient for everything.

Hotel Ceilidh-Donia is very convenient for the visitor with a car. It is near the city centre -- just a short and convenient bus ride away -- with ample free on-street parking. The management is warm, gracious, and very helpful, providing a detailed map with bus routes, local stores and restaurants upon arrival. In so far as the accommodations are... More

Great small boutique hotel. Convenient for City and sights. Friendly, helpful service. A hidden gem ! We had a room at the front which was quiet, though overlooking the street. Parking in the road outside was easy, and free!

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel and found the hotel to be exactly as described. The location was a short cab ride from downtown, approximately 6.5 BPL. It was very quiet and Thomas was a great host. The breakfasts were very tasty and healthy.

Close to the Royal Mile (we walked) and a very clean, nice place to stay. Upon check-in. Very helpful! The other guests were also very polite and I would have no hesitation to stay here again. Also--they have their own bar with bottled beer--came in handy one night as we didn't need to anywhere.
