Why anyone would want to stay in Haddington will remain a mystery, but we were there for a wedding at this venue. The glory certainly has been faded for some time, I had expected something much better for the price. On arrival we had lunch which was acceptable, but the service was slow - an hour from ordering to finishing eating. The building itself needs a good sort out to refresh it, the public rooms in particular needing attention but our bedroom upstairs was ok save dusty walls. Breakfast was a haphazard affair service wise, but cooked items were ok, nothing particularly tasty or Scottish though i.e haggis or potato scones. I witnessed the "rolls" incident as documented by the previous reviewer aimeehamilton, and on asking, the rolls buyer was told the hotel had run out and awaiting delivery! Butter was in short supply and unfortunately the croissants were inedible due to age but other items were ok, coffee one morning much better than the previous. The evening meal we had was good value and well cooked with good ingredients, as was the wedding meal. Beer is pricey and just ok for the quality of accommodation in the bar areas! The place is fading as said earlier and in need of a good refurbish, some of the public areas in particular need a damn good clean. WIFI worked well in the bar/lounge. The staff, well no real complaints here but some of the younger ones are more willing and friendly than adept, and the wedding iteself was well served. The wedding in general was well executed, so no real complaints there either. This place could be so much better with refurbishment,a more traditional Scottish theme and staff training and supervision. So, overall disappointing so I will not be back for a personal visit as I'm sure better value can be had elsewhere nearby.
