Those little details that all together become a bit too much; really small bathroom with weak shower, unconfy bed, very poor breakfast even after requested continental (got a watery coffee and a toast and off you go), etc. Loads of B&Bs around so I guess any of the other ones must do better than this one for the prize!

Dear Ignacio We are sorry that you were unhappy with your stay at the Kildonan, however we have an extensive breakfast menu which does not include continental but my husband did offer ham and cheese along with the cereal yogurt fruit etc which were set out in the dining room. The coffee served in the cafettiere could have made stronger...

The most comfortable, clean and welcoming place we have stayed in. Marion was so hospitable and breakfast was just beautiful. Convenient to centre of town and to airport as we were flying out the next day.

Our hosts David and Marion were fabulous. They were helpful in everything we asked about. We like to walk so it was no problem to walk downtown. The bus stops right down the street for those who aren't as able. I would recommend their B&B to my friends.

Marion and Dave McLeod are everything one could hope for as guest house hosts. Nothing was too much trouble (special diet catered for etc. etc.). My wife and I have stayed in countless establishments across the country over the past twenty five years and we struggle to remember receiving a more genuine and warm welcome. There is a lovely atmosphere...

We are a family of four and stayed in two large bedrooms which we were offered for the same price as one family room (thanks for that). The rooms were fantastic, spacious, clean, well-equipped en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds (I never slept anywhere better in the whole of Scotland), very quiet, delicious breakfast. There is not a single thing to be...

Really nice host who was very busy as his wife was off on holiday and he was managing the place alone. everything was in good humour. Clean, ensuite bathroom, and quiet. Great service and breakfast and very helpful. Aberdeen was a bit grey but the B and B was lovely.

Marion and Dave, are a lovely couple. Extremely friendly, hardworking and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel at home, and even gave us an extra room so we could "spread out more". Communication before arrival was prompt and informative. Photographs of the B&B do not do it justice - immaculate and a lovely homely feel....

I stayed here on a dreich day, the kind of Aberdeen day when the sun never seems to rise. Marion was very welcoming and friendly and upgraded my room to ensuite because there was space available.
