Found ourselves in Scotland with no accommodation booking and foolish of us, didn't realise The Open Golf was on. Call the Ceilidh-Donia on the off chance of a last minute availability and luckily enough we snatched up the last room for a good rate. Max (owner) was awesome and very very friendly, room was average size for European Rooms and...

Dear Reviewer Thanks for you thoughtful review, you did well getting a room when The Open Golf was on in Edinburgh and thanks for mentioning that our Breakfast were to your liking and were delicious.

Nice neighborhood, big and clean room, friendly staff and owners and very good breakfast. The bed could have been a little bit softer and it creaked on every move. A cute dog minds its own business... Walking distance from the city center if its not raining :)

We really enjoyed being away from the noise and bustle of downtown and chose to walk the half hour even though the bus is very convenient. The breakfast options were lovely, the staff extremely hospitable and there is a little pub and nice deck outside to sit and enjoy. We will recommend this to our friends.

This is where Trip advisor ratings can be a bit misleading. The Hotel Ceilidh-Donia is currently rated as the 3rd best HOTEL in the City of Edinburgh. In reality, it is a large suburban guesthouse or Bed & Breakfast. It's high rating may be attributed, largely, to its owners who are extremely obliging and friendly. In addition, it is spotlessly...

Dear Reviewer You seem to misunderstand why Tripadvisor originally came into being, it only rates Guest opinions and experiences and in no way does it pretend to evaluate the qualities or the value for money of any Hotel, Restaurant etc., etc., that is for the Guest to check out from all other available sources before they book. Tripadvisor certainly does...
