Loved staying here! Fantastic huge room, comfy big bed, huge sofa, nice big picture windows. Slight criticism that windows couldn't open very far but not a problem. Spotless bathroom, plenty of toiletries and towels. Friendly young staff, nothing was too much to ask, really nice atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious, lovely big portion of Scottish cooked breakfast and plenty of toast... More

We stopped over on our way to Tongue as it's a good halfway point. The hotel is easy to find but parking is quite restricted. Dunbar is quite pleasant with several eating places - we ended up at the Central Cafe which is good value for money. The hotel is quite old and it shows in places but it is... More

Our ladies group arranged to have our evening meal here after our visit to Berwick Upon Tweed on Saturday the 7th June. From the original enquiry to the day of the event we couldn't fault any of the staff or service. Of the 40 + who enjoyed their 2 course meal, followed by tea or coffee, it was only praise,... More

Lovely looking establishment, friendly receptionist took me straight yo my room, I did think she didn't explain much too me about my stay etc, but went to my room quickly (room 18) it was pretty basic looking, clean, fresh linen and towels which was good. Lack of toilet roll though, only 1/3 of a toilet roll available, no back up... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here over the weekend for a wedding. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They even went as far as getting a pair of crutches for my girlfriend when she sprained her ankle. Top notch hotel with a nice small bar

Stayed here for three nights and found the hotel to be very welcoming and the staff very friendly. Only had breakfast which was very nice. The rooms were a bit on the small side and the there was no bath. Wifi needs a bit of work due to the age of the building. The bar was very good and has... More

Stayed for only one night , but the staff could not have been more welcoming. I was with a group of fellow cyclists and we all felt the same. Two of our group were running late and the hotel even offered to go and find them and bring them to the hotel. The restarant food was very good and the... More
