A local B&B which wasn't far off central Edinburgh, with a helpful staff. They assisted us in all matters from how to get off the bus, to providing us with a take away breakfast, when we had to catch our flight at 6 in the morning. The dog was adorable and the breakfast was tasteful. We would without a doubt...

I've spent my share of nights in hotels and would spend another week at Ceilidh Donia in a heartbeat. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts are excellent. And the location can't be beat for the price.

Dear Reviewee Many Moons of thanks for a Wee Gem of a review, I like to think that there are thousands of words to describe a person’s thoughts after their Holiday and their destination choice but to me the Granddaddy Word of them all is "Value" added to " Money ", so I am well glad that you would come...

We arrived in distress and were assisted greatly by Annette who placed us in the ground floor front room. It was a beautiful room; well lit with large bay window and ample lighting.

Just one night's stay was enough to identify a first: a hotel that had no adverse odour. Time and again the pong of cabbage or chemical cleaner has greeted us but not here. Nicely laid out room which was as individual as us; perhaps the result of a family run place as opposed to the usual McDonald's style chain. Everyone...

I was aware when I booked this hotel for five nights that I was getting what they called a "petite single" so I was pretty much prepared for the small room (#14). Although small, the room had a great view of Arthur's Seat (I believe) at the front of the house, high ceilings and had everything I required. The bed...

First of all the best thing about this hotel is definitely the food. There's a lot of choices and they will even cook you up your choice of an omelette or even eggs Benedict was which was very very delicious. There were several choices.

Great place to stay. Only complaint is the distance to town. I know it is clearly outlined on the website but I feel it was farther than we expected. Everything else was great. Just go in knowing the distance to town and you won't be disappointed. Family was lovely, food was good, room was great, price great. Would recommend.
