We have had a pleasant one night stay at this hotel, the room was good size and comfortable. They cook some great traditional Scottish food - the breakfast was excellent. The staff have been very friendly. Just a couple of remarks: very poor wifi signal in the room and tiny sink in the shower room - that is good for... More

This is a fairly nice hotel in a very attractive, unspoilled East Lothian village, within easy striking distance of Edinburgh and Haddington. The room was very cramped, and, in my view, there was insufficient explanation of how things (in the room) worked; in general, service was a tad hit-and-miss. Food was OK, but as is often the case with these... More

What a lucky find, once again my business takes me north to Edinburgh thinking that the Athens of the North would be at this time of the year ridiculously over crowded and expensive my colleague and I found this little gem. Beautifully situated, this is a traditional Inn with excellent food and drink, but the best thing was the welcome... More

Helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable room. Lovely restaurant and bar. Superb location. A great place to stay! We would happily stay there again. Ideal for Edinburgh and surrounding area, plus the east coast.

The large number of people visiting this Inn is a very good sign of it's popularity. It is situated in a village some four miles away from a larger conurbation and whilst we stayed for four nights it was always popular and they have a lot of tables to fill. Waiting staff are very good and are well led by... More

We arrived at Goblin Ha' after a long, tiring journey. The young lady who greeted us could not have been more sympathetic or helpful. We were shown to a delightful room, where we quickly refreshed. When we later went downstairs, we were offered every amenity, and we found every member of staff to be as eager to please as the... More

Hello, many thanks for taking the time to share your experience. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your visit. The sink in room 6 is small due to the size restrictions in the bathroom....it's impossible to fit anything else in! We do have network coverage for some mobile operators but other can be patchy....... Many thanks Grant More

Visit Goblin Ha again last night. Food as usual very tasty. Calamari. Crispy and not greasy. BBQ Burger had great flavours along with accompaniments. Homemade coleslaw fantastic. Great choose of food for adults and kids alike. Waiter was so friendly to the children who loved popping outside to the 'secret garden ' after courses.
