Hi, Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had a great stay and that you would recommend us. As you mentioned we are on the main bus route with several buses that stop right outside the hotel. We do have a large free private car park and it is easy to hop on any of the buses...

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the staff both friendly and welcoming. Our room was more than adequate but we found the bed too small and we are not large people by any means. The pillows were lumpy and smelt a little stale. Perhaps they'd been stored in a cupboard prior to our stay. One of the curtains was...

We recently stayed at Kildonan Lodge for 5 nights whilst attending the Ryder Cup and golfing in the area. We found the staff to be friendly and extremely helpful, well appointed rooms and a great location on a bus route and 10 min from downtown Edinburgh. Great Scottish breakfast each morning and we had a most enjoyable dinner one evening....

Overall very nice but the lounge and dining room haven't been aired in a very long time. Tried to open the windows but not a happening thing. Very hot and stuffy and smelled like an old second hand shop.

Stayed here for two nights over a weekend in Edinburgh. Lovely building, beautifully furnished. Priced fairly highly for what I expected to pay but all hotels & B&B's with similar good reviews seemed to be in the same price region. Onsite car park was a must for us. On arrival we were helped with our luggage to our room which...
