The village of Queensferry is totally dominated by the Forth Rail Bridge, you can't miss it visually or audibly.
We stayed at the Ferrybridge Hotel because of the bridge.
The hotel interior has a dated feel to it, the bedrooms 6 in total, seem decent size and well equipped, well ours was (Room 5). The decor was a little dated and tired and in need of a little TLC.
The rooms are at 1st floor level, in a "modern" extension to the main hotel, the ground floor being a large function room. The rooms are either side of a corridor, so 3 rooms face the bridge and 3 don't, I should imagine you would hear the trains in all rooms, if you want the view ask for a room overlooking the bridge.
We visited in May and it was very quiet, I suspect that after the restaurant closes (kitchen closes at 9:00pm) the public bar will close. We came back on Saturday night at just turned 10:30pm and the place was in total darkness. Although they provide a key to a side door for such occasions, so this was not a problem.
We had a very good meal on our 1st night in the restaurant, no complaints, did not manage a desert due to the generous helpings for the main course.
Breakfast was adequate, but by modern standards lacked choice you come to expect, but if you want a "Fried Breakfast" it was good.
The big plus point is the price as at May 2013 it was £65 inc breakfast for a double room, for the price excellent value.
North Queensferry is about 25 minutes outside Edinburgh by an excellent train service.
We travelled into Edinburgh by train,
