“Perfect Stay For Mother's Day and Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

One of our favourite hotels in Scotland. Stayed in room 2 this time which had 2 double beds, window seats, view of the castle, separate seating area and an open fire which was fantastic as it was a cold foggy night. Just perfect for my husband, 10 year old daughter and I. The hotel was very busy as it was Mother's day and all the little touches like displays of fresh spring bulbs filled the public rooms with a beautiful aroma. Had steaks for dinner which carry a small supplement if you are staying on the DBB rate. Breakfast has one of the biggest selections we have encountered in a small hotel and yet again was faultless. Thank you once again for a great stay.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are very spacious and have access to a shared, walled garden. Room 2 has an open f...

This Hotel is one of the best run establishments we have stayed at. Perfect in all departments,service,food and rooms were of the highest standard to be found in a small hotel.
It made our short break in East Lothian a most memorable and enjoyable experience and would recommend it to anyone.

The taxi service we used was also first class,this was Jims Taxis in North Berwick

Room Tip: Try room No.10 or the newer rooms 21/22

We stayed here for two nights at the end of January and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. There was a huge, roaring fire in the lounge which encouraged the guests to sit around and chat. The room was a bit cool early in the evening but warmed up later on. The menu was good and, apart from one hiccup, the meals were excellent.

Friends were staying at this hotel so we joined them for an evening meal in the Library.
Friends were happy with their room. Our meal was fine, and the service friendly. The library has limited number of tables, and is a comfortable internal space. There is a bistro with views over the green, but it can be drafty if you sit near the door.
Our meal was nicely presented, but some food was lukewarm despite the piping hot plates, and the sweets were a slightly disappointing, with one being returned as not meeting the description on the menu.
All in all a pleasant experience which could have been excellent with some more care from the kitchen.

We [6 of us] decided to spend a weekend at this old hotel.The rooms were comfortable and clean,our room had the front bay window and we used this for a few drinks before dinner.The food was good and wholesome and a good selection of wine [not too expensive] and we had coffee and after drinks in the large open fire lounge.
We all enjoyed the stay and would certainly return.

Room Tip: The large room with the bay window overlooking the the car park

This hotel is excellent in every way-- very comfortable-- good food-- top notch staff-- not forgetting the lovely log fires. We shall return! The hotel is in a quiet village surrounded by wonderful golf courses and near the delightful resort of North Berwick. Right opposite is Dirleton Castle which has stunning gardens in the Summer.
