Great place to stay. Only complaint is the distance to town. I know it is clearly outlined on the website but I feel it was farther than we expected. Everything else was great. Just go in knowing the distance to town and you won't be disappointed. Family was lovely, food was good, room was great, price great. Would recommend.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review of our Hotel, glad that you loved the food, family and our rooms, Hhhmmm not sure I can agree on our location, we are only One and a Half Miles from the Castle or Palace, when the Edinburgh Festival is on in August we are only a twenty minute walk from the University Hub with some awesome shows to see.

There are app 30 Bars and Restaurant only Twenty minutes walk from our Hotel with the two closest Bars and Restaurants only 4 mins walk, The Commonwealth Swimming Pool is also 4 mins walk away and Prestonfield Golf Club is but 1 min walk, so all in all I think we are the perfect location when visiting our Beautiful City of Edinburgh..

Enjoyed our stay at this great hotel with a homey feel. The facilities were clean and comfortable, breakfast was tasty and a relaxed way to start each day of sightseeing and you can't beat the bar for a enjoyable way to wrap up your day. The hosts, Max and Annette tried to be sure our needs were met, questions were answered and be more than helpful getting us to the places we wanted to visit. Especially loved the fan in the room during the warm days and nights. Definitely would recommend this wonderful place to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Dear Reviewee

Many Moons of thanks for a Sparkling Review of the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia, we are delighted that you and your Family enjoyed our Hospitality and that your expectations were met, I tell the Staff constantly that they are the real Stars by achieving great Reviews on their Breakfasts and Cleanliness.

Yea I concur there is no better way to unwind at the end of the day than to have good company and a Wee Dram or two of Scotland’s finest Whiskies, it is after all God’s Breath,.

We never forget that it is you that are on Holiday and we are here to meet your expectations, we also believe that when Guests leave their thoughtful comments on Review Sites such as Tripadvisor and others it is like being given a Free Marketing Tool, in that these reviews have helped raise the standards of Hotels, Guest Houses/Restaurants etc which have gone up and up and up, we are always trying to upgrade and improve our Hotel and what it offers to our Guests and we do take every Review to Heart..

The hotel is super clean and organized. Location is great and every taxi driver in town knows the hotel owners... which is easy to understand why after meeting them, such a nice couple. Everything agreed was followed. Breakfast was great, as well as all the staff. Next time in Edinburg we will certainly stay there again, thank you! By the way, my wife and friends just loved the dog "who almost talks" to the guests.

Wow Wow Wee, a Review like this certainly Smiles me Up and I thought that I was just OK in small doses, tee hee hee. Our Golden Retriever Ceilidh says Woof Woof, by the way our Dog as you know is so placid that we are teaching it to Sing Opera !?, We are going to call it Placi-Dog Domingo, ha ha ha ha..

I was arriving in Edinburgh 2 days early for a 10 day tour and wanted a quiet place, but close to sightseeing, to unwind and get over jet lag. This worked perfectly. I had a single room which was comfortable, spotless and had lots of niceties. Breakfast was delicious - I recommend the vegetarian with eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes. Annette and her staff were kind and helpful.

The hotel/B&B is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood on a bus line that includes North Bridge, a central "hub" location that makes it so easy to get into and out of town. (The airport bus drops you on Waverly - just walk around the block to North Bridge.) It's also near Arthur's Seat, making a morning hike "over the hill" to Holyrood House a convenient way to start the sightseeing day. One can also walk around the hill!

At the end of my tour, we stayed in one of the "big" downtown hotels for 2 nights. It was noisy, rushed and average food. I thought fondly of Ceilidh-Donia.

Dear Reviewee

Many Moons of Thanks for a Sparkling Review, we are delighted that we felt like a Sanctuary at times for you and that our Staff's efforts on cleanliness, friendliness and Breakfastness, (oops another new word by Maxx) , tee hee hee, helped you to relax.. Our Hotel sits a Mile in one direction from The Sheep Heid a 700 year old Pub and in the opposite direction the Golf Tavern which is quite new at only 500 years old and with the Castle and Palace just another Mile and a half away and in the middle of all of this a 350 Million year old Volcano called Arthurs Seat, so tea we do feel we have a special Location for our Guests..
