We approached Edinburgh in a rainstorm, at rush hour, on the wrong side of the road, without a proper map. We were stressed! Donna greeted us with warmth and hospitality, made us a pot of tea, and answered all our questions. The house and room were beautiful, the breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room was a feast for your... More

The guest house is set in a residential neighborhood with many other guest houses. Donna is a wonderful hostess. Her rooms are clean, comfortable and priced right. And her breakfast is to die for. Fresh fruits, eggs to order and yummy cereals and yogurts. We began and ended our trip at this lovely Guest House and could not have asked... More

We were offered tea / coffee and cookies upon arrival and when we had to leave at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning, the owners got up with us and gave us quick, easy directions to the airport and send us off with a packed breakfast. Highlights:... More

We've just arrived from a 3 days trip in Edinburgh and we found for sure one of the best guesthouse in the city. We were welcomed by a very nice woman, Donna McKinlay, who offered us a cup of tea with some biscuits at our arrival.

We spent more than 5 weeks traveling throughout the UK and Ireland. Kilmaur's Guest House was the best experience and value for money. The breakfast was THE BEST.

The breakfast is truly delicious and such a choice! Always a good selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal etc and there is a truly substantial cooked breakfast to follow (haggis, black pudding,...

“My room at the back (9) was comfortable, very quiet and had a good view. The shower room was perfect for me but it was rather small and might have been too cramped for a tall person as the ceiling sloped.”
