Many thanks for your review. So nice to know you appreciated the room and our excellent location for Edinburgh Zoo. Over the years, we have tried different juice combinations in the morning but they have always been left and have gone to waste hence the orange juice only. Also sorry you thought the portions weren't bigger but with 2 slices... More

We stayed at Dalmore Lodge for one night and loved our room so much as it was really beautifully furnished. The Guest House is located opposite the Edinburgh Zoo and is only a short bus drive away from the city centre. Thanks to Iain and Dot !

Stayed here on Sat night (my mum was there for 5 nights while father was in hospital). We were made to feel really welcome and it is more like a mini hotel rather than guest house; all rooms are ensure. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms/bathrooms very clean and modern. My dad was given a mini fridge and cereal in... More

Delightful. Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Very close to bus stops with lots of services into the city centre. Good breakfast. I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment very highly.

We made the booking after seeing the excellent reviews on TA. Excellent choice for us. Right on the main bus route into the city center, we had no longer than 10 minutes to wait for a bus. Free on street parking and the guest house has a couple of spaces at the rear if you are lucky enough. We were... More

Spent the day at the zoo, caught a bus into Edinburgh and returned after having something to eat at 7pm ish.
