This was our sixth stay at Kildonan Lodge. I was examining in the University while my wife was enjoying her favourite city.
When we first stayed at Kildonan it was good, but incremental improvements and attention to detail have made it an excellent base for visitors to Edinburgh. While formerly at the top end of the guest house market, this is now a comfortable, convenient and stylish boutique hotel. The style is elegant and understated rather than modern or quirky. The rooms are elegant and comfortable.
The included breakfasts provide a good choice between a good quality buffet and full Scottish and provide a great start to the day. If you want to relax during the day, or evening, sitting rooms in the main hotel and lodge make a pleasant change from the bedrooms.
Off street parking is available and the centre of Edinburgh is a 5-10 minute bus ride away on frequent buses. The only drawback of being on a main road is that, if you open your windows, you are aware of the traffic noise, but it is never distracting,
The free WiFi throughout the premises is fast and reliable.
If you feel like a relaxing day off the tourist beat there are many nice gardens and parks nearby, or Arthur's Seat is within walking distance.
If, or should I say when, I get the opportunity to visit Edinburgh again I shan't hesitate, Kildonan Lodge will be my most likely choice and I will look forward to the welcoming staff and comfortable stay.
