Hotel met all our needs for attending a family wedding in the vicinity. The only 'constructive criticism' I would record was a rather noisy roof extractor fan which might have annoyed lighter sleepers than us. The room was small but easily suited our weekend requirements.
Comfortable B&B, fee Wi-Fi, lovely staff, and on a bus route into the city.
Would be a nice touch to have a wee biscuit along with the tea coffee in the room.
Three floors to the majority of the rooms, approx. 23 steps to each, so not for the unfit!
Beautiful old converted hotel run by Edinburgh University - lots of carved wood on the walls ceilings etc downstairs. Comfortable clean rooms with recently renovated good size bathrooms. Fabulous breakfasts! Really useful hotel for getting out and about as there is a bus stop outside with frequent buses in and out of town (time for the next one is given electronically at the bus stop). All the buses have good wifi which is really useful. A day pass for the bus is £4. Buses are definitely the easiest way of trundling around to see the sights.
We were given room 5 on the ground level. A decanter of sherry and shortbreads were provided in our room on arrival. The room appeared to have been recently refurbished. Jetted tub in the bathroom. Large fluffy towels and bathrobes were provided. Everything was clean. Comfortable bed and a large TV. Initially I was concerned about noise from the adjacent stairs. I shouldn't have been worried, the room was exceptionally quiet. The reception staff gave us instructions and change for the bus into town. (4GBP bus pass for the whole day). The bus trip took less than 10 min from the front of the hotel to the Royal Mile. There were frequent buses to and from the center of town. Free parking provided in the lot behind the hotel. Hot breakfast cooked to order.
We decided to stay for an additional night. Room 5 had been booked so we were moved to a much larger room (#8) upstairs. The room had a 4 poster bed and couch in front of a bay window. It was quiet as well, I didn't hear any traffic noise from the street. The only minor downside was that the floor squeeked as much as the floors of Hollyrood palace. I did not hear any footfalls or noise from other patrons. It was a great stay

Located just a short distance from the city centre of Edinburgh and close to the main attractions, the Kildonan Lodge …More
This suburb on the outskirts of the city center is a popular area for students and is home to some of Edinburgh's liveliest bars. The area offers fantastic views of Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Park's extinct volcano, and golfers can take in the views from Craigmillar Park Golf Club, which offers incredible vistas down the coast and across the Firth to Fife.
