The Ceilidh-Donia (Pronounced Kay-lee Donah) hotel is really comfortable gem. A 10 min taxi or bus ride from the city centre or an easy 20 minute walk; makes the Ceilidh-Donia a quieter oasis. My newly decorated room was of a very high standard, the electric power shower was great. The traditional Scottish breakfast included a tasty mini haggis. This is... More

Ah a Quiet Cozy Oasis, what a great description of our Wee Hotel, we are def in a quiet residential area and with a Residents Bar only leading onto our Pond in the Back Garden I can see why this reviewer enjoyed the relaxed ambience, we look forward to the return visit when we again can serve the wee mini...

As a mature woman who travels alone and with a slight disability I am always looking for more than just a place to sleep. This hotel gave me the best experience of all the many places I've stayed in over my years of travel. I arrived prior to check-in time after having some transportation difficulties but Annette immediately made me... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia, the place really felt like home. We really liked everything about the hotel; all our needs were catered to.

After organizing a late arrival, Maxx the proprietor was waiting up for us and greeted us warmly. The room and fittings throughout exude authenticity and warmth. The breakfast was excellent and served with a smile by the friendly staff. A bus stop is only around the corner and a quick ride to the city centre. Would definitely stay again, thanks... More

Our room was clean, comfortable, quiet and lovely. We had dinner here since we were too tired after a long travel day to go anywhere else and it was just the comfy food we needed. The breakfasts were also great and we really appreciated the good advice on getting around the city.

I and my friend just stayed there for 2 nights in May 2011 and upon our arrival, we found that we had to climb up to the 3rd floor without any help for the luggages. Moreover, the room was really tiny for 2 persons and with the room charges for 80 euro, it's very expensive and too pricy. The sound-proofing... More

We are very, very disappointed with this reviewer who at no time raised any concerns with us on their complaints, all our rooms are graded by the Scottish Tourist Boards examiners and all pass to their very High standards. We are a Three Star Metro Hotel, this grade of Hotels do not offer Porterage, if I am on duty (Maxx)... More

We booked a room with 2 twin beds. However, the room was at attic and was extremely small. The bathroom could barely fit a person. I thought maybe it was Edinburgh standard. However, we moved to another B&B half block away few days later but it was an excellent spacious well maintained room. So i didn't feel I got my... More
