I just have to say I arrived her 10pm late at night after travelling for 5 hours to find my room had been booked for by my manager for the 31st August! Absolutely stranded with no room at the Inn! This amazing lady saved me and found me somewhere local so for that alone I would give her 100% customer... More

Only stayed for 2 nights, shame it wasnt more. Lovely house, cleanliness and comfort 10 out of 10. Lovely location and yummy breakfast :) Hosts could not have been more friendly, booked taxis for us and let us know about the buses. Only 20 mins out of Edinburgh on bus and 10 mins walk from lovely beach.

Me and my partner stayed here 20/08/14 as we were going to musselburgh races. Really nice guest house, very welcoming cant fault the hosts robert and linda. Had read some negative reviews but struggle to understand some people especially the one that said not enough storage as there was LOADS. Breakfast really good as well.

We arranged for an early check-in to fit in with our plans - much appreciated thank you. Friendly hosts, house is spotless and lovely. Room was spacious and a fantastic view over the golf course. Bed was huge and very comfortable. My only very minor comment is the lack of complimentary shower gel/soaps. Like I said, very minor, and the... More

Only stayed one night but I enjoyed the stay very much. The building itself is a beautiful large stone typically Scottish house with turret rooms on the corner, one of which I was in looking out over the Racecourse and Golf links. It was a huge room with all facilities available except a en-suite. The toilet and shower rooms were... More

We were booked in for one night originally but extended our stay to two nights as we were attending a family wedding at the Quayside, Musselburgh. We had a lovely family room with stunning views over the race course and the Musselburgh Old (golf) Course. Only sad there was no time to play! Can't commend our hosts Robert and Linda... More
