We stayed at the Kildonan for one of our Rugby weekends and what a find having stayed at many Hotels in Edinburgh over the years this is by far one of the best. Lovely property and immaculate rooms with lots of added comforts. Staff, service and food in the restaurant were first class very attentive and friendly. The sitting room with the fire and papers were delightful on a cold November day.

Bus stop outside Hotel takes you to centre of Edinburgh in ten minutes therefore you have a first class Hotel in a quite location.

We will be back having already booked for a weekend on March

A really nice property - the room was beautifully proportioned and presented - certainly in keeping with a 4/5 Star Hotel anywhere else in the country. Would highly recommend it and will certainly be booking to stay here when I make my next trip to Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Dinner in the restaurant was beautiful, especially

I took my brother to Edinburgh for his 50th birthday present. Kildonan Lodge is the perfect hotel for the location, several choices of buses (bus stop across the road) that took us to the Royal Mile, Princes Street etc.
We enjoyed the homely feel of the hotel, guest sitting room with big fire place, the Christmas trimmings were up and the honesty bar was a great idea.
The breakfast choice was very good, could even try haggis if one wanted to.
We also tried the evening meal which was lovely. The decanter of sherry in the room is a welcome touch especially if you have had a long journey. The twin room was comfortable enough and well decorated.
In all we had a perfect stay, I will be back with my husband next year.

I planned to stop in Edinburgh for a night on our three day secret tour to Scotland. I saw the reviews from TripAdvisor and decided to try this hotel.

The place was nothing short than spectacular, we were greeted by Gem, who made us feel right at home. The rooms were warm and well decorated. The access to city centre is prefect as every bus comes through this area.

The final touch of greatness was the breakfast where you had a full continental breakfast along with ordering hot items as well (the Haggis was excellent). Charlotte made sure you had everything you needed and the decor was wonderful.

I've been to a lot of hotels in my travels, but I have to say this is one of the best stays and my wife couldn't believe that "I" could pick such a place (smile). We will definitely be back to visit again.

really enjoyed my overnight stay at the Kildonan lodge hotel, room was great and service first class. Guest can enjoy some fine malts from the honesty bar in the large comfortable lounge before bed and the cooked breakfast was excellent.
You can get a good regular bus service into the centre but we took advantage of the free parking and took our car
