The room was not pleasant, the bathroom was very worn down. There was a hatch in the bathroom ceiling, no idea where it went!! The shower was horrible and the Lino on the floor made me feel like I should be wearing shoes!! The artwork in the room looked like it had been done by a 2 year old and... More

I stayed with my daughter for a short break and cannot fault the staff and management for their customer service. The food is really good , the rooms spacious and clean and the sun was shining what more could you want.

We arrived after a 9 hr trip from Milton Keynes by car. They made us so welcome nothing was to much for them and the room, clean comfy and just lovely. Great view, great food, great people and all that only for 80.00 incl. full Scottish breakfast. Brilliant bargain not to be missed.

Stayed one night and couldn't park due to limited parking at the hotel and I parked 200 meters away at the roadside not the best start. It is more of a b&b than a hotel with the rooms sparsely furnished and on the small side. There was no bath due to the limited size and wifi downstairs in the bar... More

Just returned from a long weekend in Dunbar. We were on a visit to see Edinburgh but prefer to stay away from the hustle of the city - and the price of hotels there. Never been to Dunbar before but we loved it - not a lot there but if you like rugged coastline and small harbour towns, we would... More

Soup to start followed by Vegetarian Haggis, Red Pepper & Leek Lattice, Steak Pie or Lasagne. The food was delicious & plates were hot which gets bonus points... More

The staff were very friendly and attentive from the moment I arrived - which was late, dark and cold! I was still able to have a delicious choice of food in the bar and was offered a selection of local drinks to try before buying. Room was clean and homely, and I wish I'd known the selection of toiletries would... More
