      Staff were very nice, breakfast was good

      We stayed in the lodge, which don't get me wrong was ok, but did'nt seem to be as nice as main house, slightly down on the overall feel of the rest of the house

      It was my Husbands 40th birthday and the hotel was very accomodating putting balloons etc at my request in the room

    • Group of friends

      The weekend was excellent in every respect. Staff excellent and very helpful. will return next time in Edinburgh without hesitation.

    • Couple

      I feel that the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. There were no objections at all to delivering breakfast to our room both mornings during our stay which made our stay more relaxed and meant we could go about our day at our leisure. There was always a lovely smell throughout the hotel and it was a very clean and homely place to stay.

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      The interior design and the building itself were typically Scottish. The food was excellent and we were looked after very well; the staff were extremely friendly, welcoming, helpful and efficient. Our party was allocated all 3 rooms in the lodge, which was perfect. We had a few minor quibbles about equipment in one room and these were handled in a pleasant manner.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      Lovely staff, beautiful atmosphere, very comfortable, good breakfast, perfect!

    • Single
      9.6

      Room was clean and has some character. Staff were helpful, smiley and made me feel like home. There is a good bus service to the town. The good thing I liked about the hotel that they printed the bus numbers that passes by the hotel in their business cars which show that they listen to their customers and act.

    • Couple
      9.2

      Very beautiful hotel, rooms small but very nice and clean. Breakfast options were good, especially if you do not want to have a full English every morning. Bus stop right in front of the hotel and the bus ride into town only took 10min. Very friendly staff, I would definitely stay there again.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The staff were first class both within the hotel and the restaurant. Whilst our first room was not entirely suitable we were offered an alternative as soon as available. We did not complete our stay because of the very bad weather but would recommend this hotel. The breakfast was both plentifull and exceptional.

      the top floor small attic rooms are not suitable for elderly or disabled in light of no lift, however we cannot compliment enough the fact we were given alternitive accomodation as soon as practicable

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. There was some confusion regarding the booking, but the owners ensured that everything turned out ok. We also arrived late (around 10.00pm) but this was also not a problem.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Great place to stay,nice clean comfortable room, lovely breakfast, staff so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble, so easy to get into Edinburgh,(buses every 10mins from just outside the hotel). Would definitely stay here again.

    • Older travelers
