This is our 2nd visit to the Kildonan Lodge, and it wont be our last. As soon as we walked in it felt warm cosy and inviting. The lamps were all on in the sitting room and the fire on. We had booked the same room as last year the Blackwatch room, so we knew what to expect. We were not disappointed. The complimentary decanter of sherry and shortbread were on the table, a lovely welcome gesture. I had booked a table in the restaurant for the Friday evening, I am coeliac which is not a problem for the staff at the Kildonan. We had eaten here last visit so I knew the food was good. We were that impressed we booked for our 2nd night. The chef had gone to the trouble of getting me gluten free bread so that I could enjoy the balsamic vinegar and oil dip. The waitress that served us for our evening meals was wonderful, a credit to the Kildonan Lodge. Our meals on both nights were delicious and very good value. I Had fillet steak on one night and it was cooked to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble for the waitress (I forgot to ask her name) or the chef. Breakfast is again delicious and what a choice you get. Getting into Edinburgh center is so easy, the bus stops are directly opposite the hotel and run every 10 mins, Its cheaper to get a day ticket at £3.50.(You dont get any change, so have the correct money for all bus journey's)
We love the personal service that you receive at the Kildonan Lodge, something larger hotels could learn from.
