This was my first visit to Edinburgh and was delighted with the city but not quite so taken with the Kildonan Lodge I'm afraid. We had booked an executive room as it was my birthday but the room (room 5) was stuffy and airless and the window was extremely hard to open and because the room was on the "garden" floor, in other words basement, we were unable to leave it open for security reasons. The shower was poor and the room was very noisy as we were underneath the kitchen and I am very surprised that this comment has not been made before as it was hard to ignore the footsteps scurrying around above us early in the morning and past 10 in the evening.
However on the positive side, the sherry and shortbread were a lovely touch, the location was great but if I were to visit Edinburgh again, and I sincerely hope I do, I would not stay at the Kildonan again - sorry but I think you could do better in a city which is crammed full of visitors.
