Totally loved our stay here. Booked for three nights and had the amazing Black Watch room 8. The bed was so big and comfortable. The bathroom is a bit small and would have loved a bath but shower lovely. The room is a suite with sofa and writing desk. High ceilings and gorgeous bay windows added to the splendour. The...

Hotel looked beautiful with all the Christmas decorations, fire burning in the fire place of the lounge. Staff were friendly and nothing was...

We enjoyed our short stay at The Kildonan Lodge Hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was also good with a huge variety of options. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our second stay at this venue and we would be very happy to stay there again.

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...

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!!
