A super time at the hotel from the moment we arrived until departure three days later. Very accommodating hosts. Very nice bedroom with very comfy bed. Bus stops two minutes away mean easy access to the city centre. Highly recommended.

Booked this hotel over a year ago so was a bit nervous before we arrived as weren't sure what we were going to! Needn't have worried Kevin & Susan have the place running like clockwork and are very welcoming. Hotel is spotless and although is a traditional building, is modern, airy and guests and staff alike are all very friendly....

Let me preface this review by describing our style while traveling. We are an empty nest couple in our late fifties and in our mid-sixties who are middle class. We prefer the no frills small hotels and bed and breakfasts over the major chains. All we need is a clean bed and hot shower in a quiet setting. My only...

On a quiet street, this is located away from the city center but it is just a short walk to the bus stop. Nice breakfast with a menu. Has a small bar with snacks and a sitting area. Pleasant staff and orders for breakfast were done quickly.

Loved our stay of 3 nights. Owners were hosts, information source and breakfast servers. Provided everything a person needed. Room had all amenities and even had a towel warming rack! Great view of Arthur's seat and close proximity for a hike to that #1 tourist site. Bus routes to City centre within a couple of blocks.

For a non Scottish pronouncing the hotel name is almost impossible and would require large consumption of local brew It's not really a hotel more like a mom pop guest house but the bed is very comfortable, the rooms above average spacious and the hosts are super friendly offering you a service and attention you won't get at large chain...

Thank you for your review, Visit Scotland have graded the hotel as a Metro Hotel, as we have all the facilities that a hotel has with the exception of evening meals, we do however understand what you are saying, we try very hard to provide the home from home atmosphere that makes us unique and different to the other city...

We had a nice 2 night stay at Ceilidh-Donia. Even though it is a little bit 'away from things', there are frequent buses and it is very easy to get around. It is also very close to Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat if you enjoy walking. There are a number of restaurants in walking distance or you can take the...

I was staying for a two day course in Edinburgh University and needed a quiet place to stay in walking distance of the centre. With the cheap price of the room I was delighted at how nice the B&B was. It was pleasantly laid out both in the public areas and the little room I was staying in which was...
