          Well located on main road going straight to town. Good parking available. Friendly welcoming staff. Generous size breakfast in pleasant lounge. We felt the bed was very comfortable and clean, however the facilities a little old and worn and therefore building generally cold.

          Loved everything about this hotel. The Hotel and our room were both very clean, the en-suite was stunning and the bed was huge and very comfortable. There was a great selection for breakfast. All the staff were all very kind and more than happy to help with anything you need. The Hotel is a short walk from the centre of Edinburgh which was good as it meant there was no noise outside on an evening. The hotel also has it's own private off road parking and theres plenty of public transport nearby. Me & my partner loved our stay here and would recommend it to everyone.

          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.

          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.

          Arrived from US on ‘red eye’ pretty tired at 11am. Very inviting staff had us relax in lounge while attending to another checking out. Stayed 2 nights.We were able to leave luggage there until room ready. Also had to leave early am and they left for us in mini fridge yogurts and juice. Very friendly. Traditional Scottish breakfast filling and good along with fresh fruit and good variety on buffet table. And an easy walk from bus stop and about a mile and 1/2 from town also walkable. Definitely recommend this clean , friendly, quiet, reasonable place

          A. Most enjoyable stay. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and went out of their way to meet our needs. On minor thing was the breakfast - hard.dry bacon and sausage and overcooked poached eggs let the Scottish breakfast experience down. Nothing major. Just a shame.

          Slightly more of an old fashioned hotel, but very well run. Delicious breakfasts. We were visiting our son who has tarted a PhD. The owner suggested he join us for breakfast - when we checked out there was no charge for this. Location is fab, left the car in the car park and took the bus, a 10 min ride, in to explore Edinburgh. - there is no parking in city centre.

          Loved the setting and the staff was wonderful. Lovely common sitting room by fireplace and fabulous breakfast. The room itself was quite small... too small for 2 people with suitcases. (Had I known, I would have requested upgrade through hotel instead of booking on 3rd party site). Bus stop within walking distance... needed to see sites of Edinburgh.
