Tuesday night walked 4-5 km and orientated ourselves to this beautiful city of 500,000 people. It doesn't get dark until 7.30, so we enjoyed the extra hours of daylight. Found Chinese restaurant. Dave pipped since they charged an extra 10 percent on the account - since found out he shouldn't have paid! Today we have all day here, so will enjoy the sights and make the most of our time here. Enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at the B & B and the host's humour. ...
... monument to William Wallace (main character played by Mel Gibson in the movie 'Braveheart'), a loch (or lake) and an old church in the shire of Perth! After our full day of touring the Scottish highlands we retreated back to our B&B for a short rest and to collect our tickets to a comedy show. We had booked to see Jason Byrne, an Irish comedian, at the McEwan Hall in the old town of Edinburgh. He was excellent and extremely funny with the way he engaged with the crowd. ...
... were the similarities that we wondered for most of the night whether Ro perhaps moonlighted as singer / celtic instrument extraordinaire. The weather was again warm, so much so that I was beginning to wonder if the famously fickle Edinburgh climate was a myth until I was politely informed by the bloke on the front desk that they "hadn't had day like yesterday for years and it had been a decade since that had had two days in a row like this". Quite amazing really ...
... Although it is very ornate it is not ostentatious as apart from stain glass windows the decoration is very natural being based on carvings in the sandstone. We are told that interior photos are not allowed - we are thinking this is for financial reasons ie wanting people to buy books, cards etc. It turns out that several years ago, a tourist was taking a photo and walking backwards tripped on another person and injured themselves ...
... importantly hot, albeit vegan lunch. Once again on the royal mile we watched a very talented street performer entertaining a crowd of around 100 people. He was excellent and certainly funny (although anyone who speaks in a Scottish accent is gifted with humour to us). He actually did manage to get himself out of the numerous chains he had been wrapped and locked in to.
With the next 6 nations game due to start in an hour we headed off to find a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ceilidh-Donia Edinburgh
Lovely little hotel not far from the city centre. Quick cab ride for about £5 or a £1 on the bus. The hotel is in a pretty quiet location with great views of Arthur's Seat. It is very clean and comfortable.
I stayed at Ceilidh-Donia Hotel while in Edinburgh for university interviews. Its a really nice wee hotel, in a fairly quiet area - although it is only a 2 minute walk to bus routes into the city. They have stairs up to most of the rooms but this wasnt a problem for me, and I was offered help in taking my luggage up. The shower in my room was brilliant!! It was quite a small room, but cosy and very comfortable. They provide an excellent choice of breakfast, served in the dining room which is very smart, and has a great atmosphere with radio 2 on in the morning! They give you a set of keys for inside and outside doors which was great as I was out late on the first night of my stay. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the afforementioned dogs were very quiet and peaceable! If I was staying in Edinburgh on holiday again (although the next time I go will probably be when I go to university!) I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed at this hotel earlier this week. We had chosen it because of the favourable TripAdvisor reviews and also because it is recommended by Rick Steve, the USA travel guru. We also wanted somewhere close to The University's Pollock Halls of Residence where our daughter is currently based.
It is not hard to see why this hotel is so highly rated. I won't repeat the praise given by other visitors - suffice it to say we booked the hotel on the basis of these recommendations and were not disappointed.
I was very happy with my stay at the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia. Although it is off the beaten path from the Royal Mile/Princess Street area, it is an easy walk or bus ride. The rooms were nicely decorated, and the new power showers were wonderful. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly, including the two dogs. Free internet access in the bar also available. Price included a nice choice of breakfast items which could be ordered the night before.
Great Hotel at a Great Rate
We stayed in Edinburgh for three nights in March 2004. I don't think we could have found a better hotel at any price. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were comfortable and well kept. The food was excellent. The hotel was just a 5 Pound taxi ride away from the city center. This hotel is a steal at the rates offered. If we return to Edinburgh we will be staying here again.
This is a fantastic bed & breakfast! It feels like a 5 star hotel for the price of a 3 star! We were warmly welcomed by the staff and the food was delicious, its hard to find a bad word to say about it! Highly recommended!
What a wonderful stay in Edinburgh! This hotel is just perfect. Just 15 minutes walk from the city centre, the location is great. Not too noisy, but not stuck out in the middle of nowhere! Buses go to and from town every 10 minutes if you don't fancy walking and parking in the area of the hotel isn't too hard to find.
This bed and breakfast was wonderfully inviting and cozy after a week in the hustle and bustle of London. My husband and I stayed here for one night for our honeymoon in early October. Alan was polite, informative and weathered our barrage of questions with admirable patience. He got our breakfast orders for the next day right away and everything was correct and delicious. The resident dog was quite sweet and added to the homey feel of the place. The room itself was comfortable, though maybe a bit dated, and we had a fantastic view of Arthur's Seat. The location is easy enough as far as taking a bus into downtown Edinburgh but we got hopelessly lost coming back. We rode the bus for an hour with a grumpy, unhelpful driver before throwing in the towel and taking a cab. Still, our experience was wonderful and we wish we'd stayed longer in Edinburgh. Take the Mercat ghost tour!
Our group of 15 people really enjoyed our stay at this B&B type hotel on May 13&14. It's a small cozy place (13 rooms), but it packs a lot into the space. The rooms were nice and the showers had very good water pressure. It was also convenient to have a bar and restaurant available on the premises and the free Internet access was a much appreciated bonus! Full breakfast was included with the room rate.
