My wife and I had a great 2 night stay in May 2014. Great B&B with well furnished spacious rooms, delicious breakfast and very warm owner. Would recommend it for easy access to North Berwick and it is on the doorstep of Tantallon castle.

We visited for two nights and were not disappointed. The hotel was absolutely stunning and we couldn't find fault with anything. Karolyna couldn't do enough for us and the breakfasts were outstanding.
I cannot recommend this gem highly enough and we will be back soon

I would just like to say on behalf of my partner Donna & I. What a lovely friendly & helpful staff at the Hotel. The views alone from our bedroom window were fantastic. Sat in bed looking at the Bass Rock Island, full of Gannets was a real treat for Donna, me too. The hearty breakfast sets you up for your trip out around the local shops etc. The town of Berwick was a pleasure to go round & all parking was free, also the Restaurants we had an evening meal in were really nice places & food was great.
I took Donna my partner up to North Berwick especially to take her on a boat trip round the Bass Rock to see and photo the Gannets, but the weather was not in our favour that weekend. So I plan to take Donna back next year.
The hotel was a pleasure to stay in, That's why we will be going back. Tony & Donna

Stayed here for a night over the bank holiday weekend and have to say the whole stay was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get the Bass Rock room which surprise surprise has amazing views of Bass Rock! It also has a large comfy bed, great shower/ensuite and direct access to the deck. There's a fridge in the room to chill a bottle of wine for drinking on the deck.

The accomodation is located on a beautiful bay with a path down to a lovely secluded beach.
There is also a games room with TV, books and Pool Table.

Your hosts cant do enough to make your stay an enjoyable one. Jon the owner is a keen golfer and able to offer great advice and make tee time bookings.

Breakfast is great as well.

Cheers Jon! Looking forward to our next visit.

Spent a night here in July while cycling in East Lothian.The views from our room were a joy.The Bass Rock stunning with the sun illuminating it and the Isle of May off in the distance.The beach below the house is perfect for a relaxing walk in the evening and Tantallon Castle ruin is a short walk away.Accomodation was perfect with a nice deep bath and comfortable bed.Direct access to the terrace from the room gives another dimension and you can chill out watching the sea and the sun setting to end the evening.Breakfast was varied with a cooked option which had some very tasty black pudding and bacon to start the day.Perfect.

Lovely view of Birth of Forth and the Bass Rock. Lots of hot water in a beautiful, roomy shower, great breakfast, hospitable host & hostess...
Great walking opportunities too.
Also close to Tantallon Castle - a good spot for a few hours exploring.
What more could one want.

Canty Bay B&B is in a perfect location with truly magnificent views over the Firth of Forth and Bass Rock. We had a wonderful stay,and if you go make sure you take a walk down to the sandy secluded bay behind the house. The bedroom was nicely furnished, comfortable and immaculately clean, and you will be sure of a warm welcome. The breakfast was lovely and a great start to the day.
