We Stayed here during a tour of Scotland 3 years ago. Was so impressed we booked again on a weekend visit to Edinburgh with 2 friends the following year. Rooms comfortable and filled with antique furniture, wonderful dining room and good breakfast, what more can you ask?

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff are welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There was a security light shining in to our bedroom which stopped us sleeping. The solution was to take the bulb out which they did! Comfortable room and beautifully cooked breakfast. Would recommend a stay there when visiting... More

Was very lucky to get a room b&b for this hotel. The hotel is in a near city centre location, with regular buses to and from the Main Street. Was warmly greeted by the hotel manager who gave us a brief tour of the hotel amenities before showing us to our room. There is a beautiful drawing room with fireplace... More

We enjoyed our (too) short stay at the Kildonan Lodge. The staff is adorable, the mansion is glorious, the room is extra comfy and the breakfast is delicious! We'll back for sure, probably everytime we come back to Edinburgh! But next time, I'll get my four posters bed!!

The room was really nice and very clean. Comfortable bed, soft bathrobes, complimentary sherry (added everyday!) and shortbread. The breakfast was really tasty, we also enjoyed the honesty bar in the beautiful lounge. The center is 15 mins away by bus, 5 mins by taxi. An ironing board would be nice though, I had to iron my shirt on a... More

The hotel is a fair way from the centre of Edinburgh but lies on major bus routes so only about 15 minutes to the centre. A larger converted Victorian house, quiet, clean and pleasant enough. A mixture of friendly staff. Any minor issues we had were taken seriously and rapidly adressed.
