My fiance and I stayed here for a friend's wedding, which was held in nearby Dalhousie Castle. The hotel is designed like a fairytale castle, complete with free range peacocks. If you're visiting Edinburgh for a weekend away then this place is probably a bit out of the way; you would certainly need a car to get into Edinburgh and the Bypass traffic can be heavy during peak times. Also, Edinburgh isn't very car friendly. Back to the hotel...the presentation of the rooms and comunal areas is of a high standard. The bedroom was very comfortable. The en suite bathroom was large and spacious. The room was a four poster double, but was more like a small suite. The views from our room (which was the one above the turrets at the front of the hotel) wasn't anything special but the peacocks on the balcony were a treat! Breakfast service was painfully slow but worth the wait for freshly cooked food and a range of continental choices also. There is a small children's play area so this is probably a good choice for families. Ample car parking (free). I don't recall the exact price we paid for one night's bed and breakfast but I travel extensively as part of my job and I remember this was definitely good value for money.
