We had a super stay at the Goblin Ha. We were given a warm welcome. The room was comfortable with lots of little extras (like a small decanter of sherry and truffles). The food was excellent in the evening and the breakfast was great. My only disappointment was the exorbitant price of lime and soda but that was just a... More

The room was very nice although a couple of lamps were not working. Everything clean and welcoming. The food and atmosphere was first class. Bits of the fabric of the building need some attention but this does not detract from the welcoming, homely feel. An excellent base for golfers looking to play the two local country courses which were in... More

Another top notch dining experience at the Goblin Ha' last night! Always a friendly welcome, always helpful and pleasant staff, always a delicious meal, beautifully presented, fresh, piping hot. The atmosphere is welcoming and cozy but with a modern feel to the surroundings. We have never been disappointed here. I actually feel guilty that I haven't reviewed you before, and... More

The room was very clean and nice. The food was amazing. Service was superb. Everyone was very nice and check in was easy. The Hotel is close to a train station which allows quick access to Edinburgh. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it.

We stayed here for just the one night, but could happily of stayed longer. Scenery and area in general was beautiful, hotel staff were welcoming and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spacious and very clean, restaurant food and breakfast next morning were fantastic. Ample parking, and the local people were so welcoming and friendly we... More

Stayed here for a night as we were going wakeboarding in Dunbar first thing in the morning and didn't want to drive all the way through from Glasgow! Wasn't expecting much if I'm honest. But pleasantly surprised with lovely staff, great food and a comfy bed! Couldn't ask for more :)

The room was very nice and very comfortable. The restaurant was great. Food and service were good. There wasn't much to do in town at all but it was great for us as we were looking for a relatively inexpensive place close to Gullane Golf Course.

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
