Kildonan Lodge has easy access to the centre of Edinburgh and to all the attractions. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the rooms warm and comfortable. The daily "sherry and shortbread" was a novel idea.The people running the hotel were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The only downside we think is the shortage of storage space...
