Would highly recommend to others”

Absolutely beautiful hotel with some of the friendliest and most attentive hosts that I have met. Room was very clean with free sherry on arrival. Unfortunate that on the morning of our breakfast one of the chefs had called in sick therefore we waited 45 for a fry up breakfast and had to leave for the day as we had booking elsewhere. I would still absolutely recommend this place to stay as this did not detract from our stay at all.

Amazing time ”

I could not recommend this place more. The staff were amazing and so friendly. Just little things like running us up brews when we got back to our room and the complimentary sherry... Gave us all the info we needed to visit the attractions we sought... Just really good!

Absolutely the best!”

From the moment we arrived until the moment we were leaving, Sean and his team took great care of us! Lots of nice little touches (cookies and sherry in the room, pre printed bus passes and internet info, helped get luggage from car to room, wonderful full breakfast, free newspaper, snacks and drinks (soft and hard), recommendations, etc.) that made our stay that much more enjoyable! Also, very close to downtown Edinburgh. Kildonan Lodge would be our first choice when returning to Edinburgh.

Lovely Edinburgh hotel”

location, Food, Staff

Two of us stayed for two nights at the Kildonan Lodge for a city break. The location is excellent as you are on a straight road directly into the city. The walk to the city would take approx 45 mins and you would be on the Royal mile, at the East end. The food was wonderful with full Scottish breakfast on offer as well as fresh fruit, cereal and juices. We ate breakfast at 10am and couldn't eat another thing until 5pm ! The staff were kind, polite and helpful. We stayed on the second floor in a king size room (15) and it was a lovely, quaint room in what would have been the attic. Highly recommended.

Wonderful accommodations in Edinburgh!”

We had one of the garden level rooms and it was quiet, fairly spacious and had a lovely bathroom. The wifi was the best we had in our two weeks traveling around Scotland and we appreciated the bit of sherry left in the room for the guests. We were tired on arrival and decided to have dinner at the hotel our first night which was not only surprisingly good, but at extremely reasonable prices. The included breakfast was also good, though on Sunday, service was a bit slow due to the full dining room. The hotel is a bit more than 1.5 miles from the main tourist areas of Edinburgh and we enjoyed the quiet walk back and forth, though buses are available. The staff were consistently friendly and we received some helpful advice for our touring, including discount coupons for the sightseeing bus tours. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
