Kildonan Lodge Hotel
Ranked #10 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2014

The title says it all - ideally placed for buses to centre and car travel in and out of Edinburgh. Excellent staff support and comfortable accommodation augmented by a excellent breakfast and plenty of car parking spaces. It ticks all the boxes for us.

Room Tip: There are stairs so ask for a ground floor room if you have mobility problems.

Will definitely re-book when returning to area

A 20 minute walk from the town centre and well served by a good bus service this little hotel is well placed. The room was a decent size with a limited t.v. service - but a t.v. lounge offered a full satellite service - crucial during an international cricket tournament. The bathroom was spacious with a bath and reasonable shower. The only fault was the fan was too weak to cope so after a shower you couldn't see anything for a while. The room had tea making facilities and you were greeted by a complimentary flask of sherry. The staff were very helpul and friendly and made light of problems when they presented themselves. The restaurant only serves dinner - which we didn't take so cannot comment upon, but the breakfasts were of a very high quality - particularly the cooked breakfasts. Another lounge with self serve bar completed the facilities. This was a very comfortable place to be and I would be very happy to return.

The Kildonan Lodge is the ideal hotel to explore Edinburgh from. It's on the edge of town, but that makes it easy to get to if you're driving and there's plenty of parking. There's a bus stop just a few yards from the front door and you're in the centre of town within 10 minutes. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable. And, of course, clean. The staff are without exception friendly and do whatever they can to help you. I always try and stay here when I come down to the city, and will be sure to come back next time I'm down. Recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in number 8, the Blackwatch room. It is a large family room, but is reasonably priced and...

Stayed here on Friday 14th as part of a last minute visit to Edinburgh , arrived to find ample free private parking , friendly and informative staff and a lovely clean comfortable room , close enough to the city centre with excellent public transport service on the doorstep yet far enough away to get a peaceful nights sleep , breakfast was faultless with both buffet and a full Scottish breakfast included , we cannot rate our stay highly enough and will definately be back

A very welcoming and comfortable hotel about 1.5 miles south of Edinburgh city centre. Very convenient both for the University Kings Buildings campus (10-15 mins walk) and for the city centre (35-40 mins walk), so for a mix of business and leisure. An ideal base when visiting Edinburgh by car (easy access from/to the city by-pass). Our room was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. We had a superb meal in their restaurant on the evening we arrived and did not feel like venturing very far. I can thoroughly recommend it and hope to be back when I next have business in Edinburgh.

We had an excellent stay at the Kildonan: the hotel was very good value with excellent service and very comfortable stay in a very convenient location. The hotel has on-site parking and excellent bus loinks into the city.

The staff were very good, the room & bed comfortable and the facilities were also very comfortable – a very nice lounge and conservatory. The sherry & shortcake in the room was a nice touch and breakfast was excellent too.

Room Tip: Room 4 was very comfortable but underneath the dining room so a bit noisy in the morniong if a light...
