Our New Year's Day visit with friends was the reason for eating here. The dining room is very pleasant, although not overly large. There is a separate small bar area adjacent to the dining room, although you can get drinks at the table. However, despite the food being well prepared and tasty, the speed and style of service left a... More

Great all round. We stayed one night and have booked back in. Spacious room, good breakfast, free wifi, newly refurbished to a very high spec. Very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. Look forward to returning.

Spent three nights in this recently refurbished hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food was very much better than we would have expected and all the staff were exceptionally welcoming. An excellent centre for touring East Lothian and the Lammermuirs.

We had to visit Dunbar at short notice but found it difficult to find accommodation. We booked a room at The Hillside with some trepidation, having been disappointed there some years ago. I'm glad to say that we would happily return. The room was excellent - the shower was particularly impressive - and our general experience was very encouraging. The... More

Fresh food, cooked to order and pleasant friendly staff! Always our choice when eating out. Kids even get to put their own sprinkles and sauce on their ice cream! The owner is usually about and is very hands on. Not stayed here but have friends who have and give it a good review also!

The outside of the building is no reflection on what you find inside. The inside has undergone major refurbishment, is clean, tidy and very welcoming. As a female travelling by myself I felt completely safe and at ease here. The staff were friendly and welcoming from arrival until the end of my visit (14 days). The hotel has a bar... More
