My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, it was lovely. All staff are very polite and attentive. The breakfast was one of the best meals we had. Only a short trip to city centre £1.60 on bus or £4 all day. Will def be returning with family for next stay.

Excellent service from start to finish - welcoming and helpful. Very comfortable room with great jacuzzi bath. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant but the lodge is ideally located to get into the city centre via a 15 minute bus ride, and with buses every 2 minutes from just across the road, it's easy.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff are welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There was a security light shining in to our bedroom which stopped us sleeping. The solution was to take the bulb out which they did! Comfortable room and beautifully cooked breakfast. Would recommend a stay there when visiting...

Was very lucky to get a room b&b for this hotel. The hotel is in a near city centre location, with regular buses to and from the Main Street. Was warmly greeted by the hotel manager who gave us a brief tour of the hotel amenities before showing us to our room. There is a beautiful drawing room with fireplace...

We enjoyed our (too) short stay at the Kildonan Lodge. The staff is adorable, the mansion is glorious, the room is extra comfy and the breakfast is delicious! We'll back for sure, probably everytime we come back to Edinburgh! But next time, I'll get my four posters bed!!

The room was really nice and very clean. Comfortable bed, soft bathrobes, complimentary sherry (added everyday!) and shortbread. The breakfast was really tasty, we also enjoyed the honesty bar in the beautiful lounge. The center is 15 mins away by bus, 5 mins by taxi. An ironing board would be nice though, I had to iron my shirt on a...
