This was our first stay at bed and breakfast accommodation and we were very happy with it. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean room. Great breakfast selection. And good location too. We only had one night but would have been more than happy to stay longer.

The hotel has lots of charm. The staff were all very helpful and personable. With a rental car in Edinburgh this is the answer, easy parking and right on the main bus lines to Old Town. We stayed two nights and the bed was not as comfy the second night, hard to sleep away from home. A bit pricey but...

From arrival til departure three days later, the Kildonan staff did everything to make our stay comfortable. The lodge was was quaint and homey. The room a little small but sufficient for our purposes, considering we didn't have to hassle crowds. The meals were tasty, plentiful, and well prepared. The convenient bus line to City Centre perfect as you could...

The hotel is a charming hotel. The staff is courteous and room was clean. A little distance from the fun spots and castle area, but we used uber and it worked great. Many use the bus service too. Good breakfast.

Had a really lovely weekend in Edinburgh. This hotel is perfect in every way and will definitely go back. Staff very helpful and the breakfast delicious. On the bus route and also very quiet which is important to us. It was part of my 60th birthday celebrations so wasn't disappointed.

This Victorian hotel was full of charm and had a friendly atmosphere. The hosts were really wonderful and helpful. We were upgraded to a luxurious 4-poster bedroom which we loved. The top floor bedroom of our son was small but charming. The drawing room was very cosy and peaceful. The breakfast was delicious. We had a nice dinner there too....
