Don't let yourself be intimated by the reception ! I suppose they preferred to keep it low profile but rooms are absolutely value for money and really nice overall ! Beds were so comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and new and provided with everything we needed. The breakfast is good as well, you can order from a menu... More

The service and personal attention given during my stay was exceptional. Everything from directions to personal recommendations of little-known local favorite finds from management and staff. There is a wonderful family energy that is contagious.

Hotel Ceilidh-Donia was just what we were looking for. The owners were very friendly, the rooms were clean with great facilities and the breakfasts were very nice. As first time visitors to Edinburgh, the map provided by the hotel, showing good places to eat, pubs, etc. proved invaluable and we weren't disappointed by any of the places shown on it.

Would definitely go back! Delicious breakfast complete with haggis (had to try it!) and black pudding but plenty of options to choose from. Top floor room facing the front of the house was worth every penny! Big comfortable room. Clean spacious bathroom. In room coffee and tea. Friendly owners and other guests were very respectful. Easy bus ride or walk... More

Stayed here over the past weekend whilst in Edinburgh, and this is perhaps one of the nicest hotels me and my boyfriend have stayed in! The staff were lovely and friendly, providing a map upon arrival which clearly showed main attractions and places to eat in Edinburgh as well as helping us with the buses into the city. The room...

Had a lovely two night stay at this Hotel. Thomas and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The room and bathroom was very clean. A map and general info was provided to help us find our way around Edinburgh which we found really useful. Excellant choice of breakfast ,we would definitely stay here again.
