Beautifully Appointed, Friendly Welcome, Great Cof
The Dalmore Lodge Guest House was great. We received a really friendly welcome from Iain, the room was very well appointed and comfortable with a private bathroom, breakfast was well made with a reasonable range of options and good coffee. What really impressed me was the size and quality of the room - everything was very tasteful and we even had a small balcony which we sat out on on the Saturday evening (as long as the weather permitted!) It is close to an excellent Chinese restaurant (Cool Jade - go, seriously) and is directly opposite Edinburgh Zoo, however if I was to make one observation it's that there didn't seem to be much else in the immediate vicinity by way of diversion or restaurants. However as we were largely there on business it was a great base to access the city centre, and I'd have absolutely no hesitation staying there again. Iain very kindly allowed us to use their car park while we went to the zoo after we checked out, and this is one example of the great customer service that was the hallmark of our stay.

A Gem perfect for visiting the zoo
We stayed here on friday night before we planned on visiting the zoo, which is literally on the doorstep. The manager was charming and made every effort to make our stay as best he could. The room was stunning and breakfast was top notch. Will deffinetly want to come back next year
