I stayed for three nights with my elderly mother in room 2 - lovely and clean, with a double bed and a single bed, this is quite a large room. Decor throughout is a bit quirky, but in a nice way. We spent quite a bit of time in the room because of my Mum's age (at 86 she gets... More

Stayed for two nights during the scottish open golf tournament and really enjoyed our stay, The owners were very helpful and totally relaxed about everything, we could come and go with our own door key at anytime. Room and amenities very clean and comfortable. The enormous and filling breakfasts set us up for both days,would certainly stay at the Folly... More

This is a tired B & B that offers a great breakfast but little else. Room tired difficult shape a limited TV old system. Poor value and housekeeping standard weak. I would not like to recommend to any walker

It's ideally located near the railway station and High Street. I appreciated the friendly welcome from the personable owners. That was the good news. Less positive is the decidedly compact nature of the rooms. I couldn't have squeezed a cat in the room to swing it, had I had the inclination. The decor was a retro 70s brown and white... More

Just returned from a trip to North Berwick. We stayed at the Folly and it was great. The owner and his wife where great hosts and we all had a brilliant and good valued stay. Nice bar area and the Scottish breakfast was just what the doctor ordered. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

My friend and I stayed at the folly on New Year's Eve. It was such a nice experience. The staff were wonderful and our room was beautiful, clean and homely. It is in walking distance from the seaside and the town is so cute. Prices were fantastic as well. We will definitely be going back!

Already knowing this area I booked the Folly as it is in easy distance of the station and the High street and beach. My room was clean and well furnished. I had a choice of rooms and chose to be on the front overlooking golf course and views towards the East. The traffic noise was noticeable but didn't stop me... More

North Berwick is a popular place to go, which appears to mean B&Bs can charge what they like. We had a nice welcome here, and the location is quite good, but for £100 a night you'd expect a decent mattress and not to feel like you're in a room that hasn't changed since the 1980s. What are they doing with... More

Stayed two nights after finding it on Google. Price is 50 per person per night which is expensive. Breakfast good and cooked to order. Bathroom in eaves of loft space which is fine if you are less than 6ft tall. Otherwise its a squeeze into the shower and the toilet! A nice stay. Lots of b&bs in north berwick so... More

I stayed at The Folly Hotel, a converted former fire-station, but was rather fearful because of some earlier adverse reports. I thought I had better straighten the record. I found the owners unobtrusive but responsive, the rooms were clean and well-presented, all services worked well - good lighting, efficient en-suite facilities, no phone or refrigerator. My bedroom was decorated in... More
