This hotel is a nice change from the usual brand name chains that I stay in. I checked in tonight. Very good welcome and the staff cannot do enough to help you. I shall have breakfast here tomorrow but so far everything is very good. If I do have to find a fault then possibly the shower can be updated... More

I spent two nights at the Maitlandfield House hotel, and was greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in the front door. The decor is very traditional which I like and the staff presented me with a friendly and engaging welcome. They showed me to my room, which was a double twin... More

Fabulous setting very close to the river and just across the road from the church which has 2 glorious stained glass windows by Burn Jones - a member of the Pre- Raphaelites!!! Staff are lovely and the breakfast is good. Unfortunately some of the rooms are a little small.

From the outside this is a fantastic looking hotel. The reception still give that impression. The Lounge and bar area are well appointed. The rooms are clean but there is far too much furniture to allow you to move in room. The shower was also very disappointing. The staff were very good and the food in the restaurant was good...

Second time staying here in one of the big rooms...and it was big. Lots of space, huge bed and big bathroom with corner bath. Always welcoming but I was very disappointed that there was not a blazing fire in the fire place...there was one before in summer, but not now in December!!! However, there were only two rooms booked. No... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in one of our large rooms. Sometimes we cannot light the fire, even in winter as we have problems with smoke in the lounge if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction. It is disappointing when this is the case as it definitely adds... More

Just okay. My room was very basically furnished and small and it was very difficult to move through the gap between my bed and the cupboard to draw the curtains. But the room was clean and the bathroom facilities were fine. Breakfast on day one was truly awful with the food lukewarm as was the flask of tea. Breakfast on... More

Thank you for posting your review. Next time you visit please state that you would prefer a larger room as our rooms are all shapes and sizes. We also have much larger superior rooms which would guarantee you more space and comfort. You are absolutely right about the eggs cooked to order they offer the perfect compliment to our buffet...

I stayed in a double room for one night whilst in the area on business. It was not a cheap hotel, though I have had better service in cheaper hotels!! When I arrived just after 7pm I was told there was no Chef and if I wanted to eat I would need to go into Haddington. The room was basic... More

Thank you for your review. We were shocked to hear that you thought we never had a chef. Our Brasserie is closed on a Sunday evening and all day Monday in the winter months. This seasonal adjustment is detailed on-line on all booking sites, to save guests from disappointment when they arrive. Your review sparked conversation about how to deal... More

Hi and thanks for your review, at first I thought the heading was a negative one but on reading your review I quickly realised that you really enjoyed the hotel. Thanks for saying that you felt that the positives more than outweighed this negative. People are often fixed on finding and reporting negativity when there is so much going on... More
