When we first drove into the parking area, we thought we were in the wrong place - there was what looked like palace, not a lodge. The lodges are down the driveway to the left. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who told us although we were booked for the lodge, we had access to hotel services. Our rooms were clean and comfortable,although my second story single had a sloping ceiling that made it seem a little smaller. After dinner and some local touring, we went to the hotel bar for a nightcap where we were served by a very hospitable bartender who engaged the night receptionist with us in very interesting stories of the place. The hotel, we were told, was the former palatial home of the Queen mother Elizabeth's sister. Edinburgh Lodges is conveniently located near the A720 City of Edinburgh Bypass for an easy 20 minute drive, with several service stations enroute to fuel up, around Edinburgh to the Edinburgh airport, which was important as we had to fly out the next morning. I would definitely plan on staying at Edinburgh Lodges on a return trip.
