Live band at the bar right below the rooms. Crazy loud music with no chance of sleep. Decent food, but would never stay again as it appears to want to be a live music venue and with no sound insulation it is totally unsuitable to be a hotel. Rooms very basic, even for low price.

Avoid room 9, chiller units and kitchen extractor on roof top outside window. Room small and tired, on-suite small but refurbished. Meal in restaurant accompanied by a child and parent crawling along the floor and asking the kid not to eat the carpet! All staff were polite and courteous, you don't know why you were given a rubbish room, so... More

Our stay was to be for one night at the Laird and Dog in Lasswade. Drivers please note: beware of the tight turn off the road into the carpark. The check-in is at the bar in what feels more like a regular English pub than a hotel. The receptionist, who doubles as the barmaid, was very friendly and welcoming. Our... More

We stayed at the laid & dog for 2 nights. The manager was very freindly and outgoing and informative. The inn has a bus stop right in front which helps out a lot for visiting the area. The food was also good BUT the rooms were VERY POOR. The bathroom was SO VERY SMALL and we are not that large... More

The staff were very helpful but this is a busy pub and the lady behind the bar had to check me in whilst looking after about 20 drinking customers. She kindly organised some soup for me as I had arrived just as the restaurant was closing (9 pm.) The furnishings in the bedroom was very basic, and though there was... More

We stayed here for a night and we were delighted with the value of the room. Only 30 pounds including an amazing full Scottish breakfast for both of us. We had a lovely dinner the night before in the restaurant and I have to say I was impressed by the selection of whisky and beers available.

Took a wander down for date night and wasn't disappointed! Cajun chicken burger was spot on, boyfriend had the sirloin steak and was pleased it was cooked as he'd asked (compared with other locations) topped it all off with chocolate fudge cake, amazing! Will be back within the week :)
