I have stayed at the Rocks Hotel in Dunbar a few times now as its close to my place of work the Belhaven Brewery and have never once had a bad experience! Staff are great, food is outstanding and location is beautiful - great stuff!

i arrived here on Good Friday which was the second day of our bike ride to Edinburgh. We arrived soaking wet and were greeted with a friendly face which nothing was to much for the guy on reception. We were given our room key promptly. I was amazed at the quality of the room and the views we had from... More

We had a lovely dinner at The Rocks. The restaurant kindly provided a courtesy minibus from North Berwick for our family, and this was booked easily through their website. We recommend all the food on the menu - particularly the fish and the sizzling pork. The service was very friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent quality.

On my last visit to Dunbar I ate at the Rocks & it was my 4 time eating there & the food was excellent each time. They cooked with local produce where possible & the food was very good. Liked the ambiance of the bar & restaurant especially the real fire. Looking forward to my next visit!

This is a really friendly well run small hotel ideal for either a business or leisure stay. The location is fantastic with sea air and views and I always feel invigorated when I stay. The food is carefully prepared on the premises in a gastro-pub style setting which if you like a relaxed feel is perfect. Despite my diet I... More

Had a wonderful meal with friends at the weekend. Food beautifully cooked and presented, staff attentive, friendly and helpful - but never overpowering. Jim Finlay has the balance just right. Will definitely be back.

Having had a couple of excuisite meals here before, the Rocks was the perfect location to celebrate a big birthday with friends who were travelling up from England. We booked rooms and a meal for the Saturday night. Everything about it was excellent - we were given a private dining room...and were lucky enough to get the recommended 'Room No.... More

Excellent service, food and attention to detail. Every single member of staff was considerate and courteous and they made you feel that they had as much time for you as you wanted. 10 of us in the party and for breakfast and they asked what each of us wanted and provided 10 separate customised meals. Very impressive.
