We agreed to this no problem and were shown to our table. The decor in the dining room is... More

The bed was clean and comfy.... More

Went for a meal with a small group of friends recently, we were the only ones in the restaurant, the service couldn't have been any slower, the waitress would rather do other tasks or chat with bar staff than take our order or be of any more assistance than absolutely necessary. It was apparent that an early finish for the... More

Stayed here for one night, the room was very nice, modern & clean. The bed was extremely comfy and the view from the room was fantastic. The breakfast was tasty, the staff very friendly and overall we had a good stay. I would certainly stay here again.

Located in Dunbar, the Hillside sits in a picturesque location just two minutes walk from the centre of this popular East Lothian coastal town.
