Stayed in Room 7. Quite a small room but adequate. Very nicely decorated. Lovely breakfast.
Points that could have improved our stay.
1. Uncomfortable soft cheap mattress
2. Main door banging till at least midnight. Room 7 is directly above.
3. Quite a cold bedroom. Put radiator on full but was lukewarm.
4. Heated towel rail stone cold!
5. Lots of dust around heated towel rail and on top of shower head.
Plus points. Staff were friendly and attentive. Good value for money.
Just a few minor details to address and would vastly improve the comfort and stay for future guests. Those particularly staying in room 7.

Stopped at ravelston house by chance after spotting it driving past. It was half price Wednesday and the dinner was superb. Really good value for money with very big portion sizes. The lady behind the bar was extremely friendly and we felt comfortable from the moment we sat down until the moment we left.

I visited the Ravelston with family & friends. We booked this hotel as we asked at the time of booking if we could book a table in the bar as we wanted to watch the Ryder Cup on Sky TV and were informed thus would be fine and our request would be noted in the booking !! We arrived on the day to be informed that they did not have Sky TV and we were questioned as to why we had not booked the restaurant, to which we advised that we wanted to watch Sky sports which they didn't have !!!! Very annoying. Then the barmaid stated our booking was for 5 persons and there was 6 of us. The booking was made for 6 persons and it was only when one of our party suggested trying somewhere else that the barmaid changed her attitude and allocated us a table for 6 persons. We then sat at our table to be served by staff with very poor customer service. The food was good but the staff were another matter !!!

We recently had elderly visitors from Canada staying with us and were trying to get a restaurant that was on a bus route from where we stay near Portobello and my wife suggested here. We had not been here for a number of years but decided to give it a try and were not disappointed.We had starters of crab cakes, haggis balls, scampi and goats cheese followed by mains of steak pie, hoisin duck and two sea bass and everything was well cooked and nicely presented by pleasant staff. We thought it was reasonably priced as the bill came to just over £110 and this included 4 large glasses of wine and four pints of Belhaven. We will be back.

I would like to thank dean and his staff for making my wife and my wedding the most amazing day ever, the service was outstanding and you can not be faulted one bit.
The ravelston was beautiful and our hotel room was amazing. I would recommend the ravelston for anyone’s wedding.
Dean went the extra mile for us and we can’t thank him enough. They made it a day that my wife, myself and our guesses not forget ever.

Thank you ravelston house hotel.
