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.

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.

My bedroom was decorated in... More

Found this place via Google and their website. Booked over the phone. B&B all seemed to be full in North Berwick at the time so we booked for two nights here. On arrival it had been raining all day and was advised that we would have to park across the road at the golf club. Due to parking and loading... More

I booked my stay at this hotel whilst visiting Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival. The price very reasonable compared to other hotels in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas that i had enquired about. The location was good (only 5mins walk to train station for short commute into Edinburgh) and the surroundings of North Berwick itself were beautiful. The staff at... More

The hotel was expensive and very basic. There were stuffed toys and clowns hanging from every nook and cranny and the rooms were awful
