I stayed here recently on a trip to Edinburgh with my Mum, who was visiting the UK from New Zealand.
When I booked our room at Hotel Ceilidh-Donia I was looking for somewhere that was comfortable and friendly, but also had a bit of English/Scottish charm (for my mum) and Hotel Ceilidh-Donia lived up to my expectations.
We were greeted warmly on arrival and given information about the surrounding area, buses and a local map. Our room was spacious for the UK, with two very comfortable beds, very clean and warm. Breakfast served every morning was a buffet continental service and then a 'hot food' service that was made to order, and all inclusive in the room rate. Lovely and fresh!
We were given keys to the front door as well as our room so we could come an go as we pleased.
One thing to note is that this hotel is a bus ride from Old Town Edinburgh. You could walk to it in about 30-40 minutes if you wanted, but we chose to get daily bus passes that allowed us to catch buses around the city as we wanted. There were 4 regular buses that went past the hotel regularly from the city, so we never had to wait more than about 5 minutes - and the trip itself took about 8 - 15 minutes depending on time of day and traffic.
The hotel backed on to the greenbelt area where you can walk to Authors seat. Very scenic.
I would happily stay here again. And my mum would too.
