Stayed at the Laird and Dog for three nights at the end of July. We had a famlly wedding at a venue nearby and chose to stay outside of Edinburgh, for convenience. On Tripadvisor, it is classed as a Hotel. The management class it as an Inn. In reality, the facilities have more in common with a village B&B of... More

Cannot fault them on cleanliness, food and service. This hotel boasts a lovely and helpful staff and Manager. The dining room is light and airy and the breakfasts are good. Our room was comfy and we slept well on the beds. The bus stop into Edinburgh is outside the front door and the return stop is just across the road...What... More

After setting off on a 200 mile bike trip I found the sun going down and I was stuck for somewhere to stay, I tried the Premier Travel Inn in Dalkeith and they were charging £120+. I gave Craig at the Laird and Dog a call on the off chance they'd have a free room. Bingo! Craig the manager was... More

Stayed here for one night on business in Dalkieth, Rooms are contractor standard with very small bathroom that you can just about fit in without touching the wall, bed was far too soft for me to get a good nights sleep. Having said that the food in the restaurant downstairs was very good as was the breakfast the following morning.

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!

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
