Before I write a critique on an Inn I stayed in during my recent trip to Scotland I have noticed that there are serious criticisms dating back some years before a recent change in management of this particular Inn. Surely this should not happen. The Inn concerned is The Golf Inn, Gullane. ( I am led to believe from the... More

Returned yesterday from our fifth annual trip to the Golf inn and the view of the twelve strong party was that it was better than ever.the improvement over the last two years has been phenomenal the bedrooms have undergone a facelift and the food is beyond compare. So far as the breakfasts were concerned it was particularly pleasing is that... More

Accommodation fresh and clean. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Beautiful residents lounge upstairs where the tea & coffee facilities are. The bar is typically quaint. Looking forward to staying again and having a meal there next time as managed by a top chef!! Stunning countryside around this lovely place.

Stayed on a Saturday evening, don't be put off by negative comments. Yes the rooms are pretty basic but very clean. However, it is the food in the restaurant that makes this little gem of a hotel special and also the staff. Lovely warm welcome from the lady on reception and still smiling when she served us at dinner and... More

We spent one night last week at this amazing inn. Spotlessly clean, wonderful staff and dinner was to die for. I had the wild Atlantic sea trout. Possibly the best meal I have ever had. Breakfast was equally good.

My friend and I stayed for 1night last weekend. What a lovely quaint Inn with very friendly staff. The food was very good and the room clean and comfortable. This small town is lovely and close to golf courses and the beach. A very relaxing stay, well worth a return visit.

My husband and I stayed at the Golf Inn, Gullane for 2 nights in April. For a room price of £180 per night I was expecting a lot better. The room was very disappointing with a very cheap wardrobe and no dressing table or drawer space. Trying to get ready for a wedding standing up was very difficult. Although there... More

Our room located in the Hazel Cottage annexe was spacious, comfortable and very clean. We stayed for two nights and even though nearby rooms were occupied we never heard any noise. The breakfast menu had a good range of options and they were cooked to perfection. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant both nights and food was very good.... More

Previously it was cheap and cheerful and we always hoped someone would take it over and renovate it properly, as it had... More

We have just had a fantastic meal in the Golf dining room. The menu incorporates fine dining options alongside classic favourites. The price range is excellent, allowing flexibility and choice for all pockets and occasions. The service was friendly and efficient. We were very happy to find langoustines and dressed crab on the menu, and followed this with a lamb... More
