Throughly enjoyed my stay at Ceilidh Donia. The owners and staff are very nice people. The hotel is in a very quiet area but not too far out of the central town- you can take a 30 or a 33 bus into central Edinburgh which take under 10 minutes. Room 13 has an excellent view of Arthur's Seat. The room... More

What a find...an extremely clean, comfortable and well run B & B. The staff were extremely friendly, explaining bus routes, locations of pubs & restaurants upon arrival. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to order from a varied menu and always served with a smile. We walked into the city centre a number of times it only took about 20/25... More

Just a few blocks from the Royal Mile, with Arthur's Seat behind. Quiet, friendly, and the best food for miles around. Struan is a four star chef, and people would come from other places to try and get seating. But if you stay here, you're automatically in!

Comfortable B and B. Excellent cooked breakfast with choice of cereal, fruit and yogurt. Clean, comfortable rooms. Just within walking distance to centre of town (we did it twice!) but close to direct bus route.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in mid-June. It is located in a lovely quiet neighborhood a few blocks off the busy streets. Our room was on the 3rd floor, with openable windows providing great views of King Arthur’s Seat. The stairway was quite steep, which I imagine could be problem for some, especially with luggage, although we... More
