We stayed here for two nights in a room number 5. The room was really great, large and lovely decorated and very clean with a small en-suite bathroom, bed was very comfortable. The only negative thing was that it had window to very busy corstorphine road so it was a little bit noisy but nothing terrible. The location was opposite... More

And for the younger ones just a short bus ride into the city. Would recommend a day pass if using the buses as works out cheaper. The whole family loved the Dalmore. The... More

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 !

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.
