Don't Just take our word for it ....

Old-fashioned experience in modern facilities

Bar and lounge were comfortable to sit and chat (and drink) with well-stocked bar. Rooms were clean and fitted out with good quality fixtures.Our room was one of the smallest so shower and no bath, but best use was made of the space. Everything you could need, including free Wi-Fi

Great stay

We came for a funeral and had a wonderful stay in a very spacious twin bedroom with its own fridge and everything. Very handy as mum always buys milk to have with her coffee in the room. Stayed in and watched a film on the big TV. And had a lovely bath and a good sleep

We spent a night here while visiting my uncle. The room was light and airy, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean. We had a lovely view over to Edinburgh Castle. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were excellent. Our dinner was tasty, hot and reasonably priced. For breakfast there was an excellent choice of options from a self service buffet. The staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!


Visited with elderly grandparent today and so impressed . Service, care and kindness of reception and restaurant staff was really outstanding. Wonderful location, spotless surroundings and service . Really accessible and wheelchair friendly. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you !



Booked four nights b&b. Very happy as hotel was clean and tidy with friendly helpful staff. A lovely breakfast with a good choice of hot and cold food. We used the bar and found the prices were ok. Great location with free parking. We used the No11 bus which stops right outside the hotel to go to and from the city leaving the car. Family day ticket was just £9.50 2adults and 2 children (up to age 15). Would recommend and we would definitely stay again.
