My friend and I stayed here for a wedding at Dalhousie Castle in Edinburgh. We stayed in the twin room which was amazing, really big with a huge ensuite bathroom and the room had two double four posters! All the staff were really friendly and very accommodating. The hotel is very clean and has nice grounds and is famous for it's resident peacocks who are very tame! I also have to recommend the food which has generous portion sizes and is delicious, especially the full Scottish breakfast.
The bus stop is almost outside the front door and a bus into Edinburgh centre costs just £1.10. I also have to highly recommend Bee Dee (BD) Taxis 0131-663 8541, the owner of which was extremely accommodating for our regular trips in his 8-seater taxi back and forth to Dalhousie castle and I should add the only local taxi company who seemed free to give lifts to two lost English people where the other taxi companies told us they were fully booked two days in advance!
Overall, a fantastic hotel, we were very pleased and it really made our stay in Bonnyrigg very enjoyable.
