Secured an excellent online deal for two nights B&B and dinner one night, which we worked out as costing less per night than the average budget/chain hotel in Edinburgh (such as Holiday Inn Express of Travelodge). With this in mind, an excellent stay - helpful, interested staff who were happy to assist with every aspect of our stay, pleasant and... More

My partner booked a 2 night stay at knockomie as he had planned to propose to me, the hotel knew about this as my partner informed at booking however when we arrived our room was just basic I feel for the money he paid! There was a room pictured with a large bath however ours was quite small, the wraps... More

We've stayed here a twice before and loved it. Service was always fabulous and the food delicious - beautiful a la carte menu. Not especially cheap but well worth it and what you expect for four star. We were really disappointed this time around. Staff were very pleasant but poorly trained and inattentive (at breakfast they didn't even clear cereal... More

Sometimes , on a rare ocaasion we fail or are misunderstood. On this occasion, I fear we failed to respond to your needs, for which we the Knockomie team say Sorry. Indeed we have changed over the last 6 Years but not much over the last 4, we have responded to customer feedback where possible. I agree we are more... More

Spent two days at the hotel recently with my partner and two dogs. We were allocated a ground floor room which suited us having the dogs. We were all made to feel very welcome and the dogs were fussed over by staff and other guests! Dinner was excellent and very good value considering the quality and service, and there was... More

We arrived at the Knockomie Hotel at 4pm on a Friday afternoon for a two night stay. First impressions were very positive, the building is impressive, dating from the early 19th century with further extensions during the early 20th century. The décor is a mixture of period and modern sympathetically used. We were warmly welcomed by John the hotel manager... More

Booked this expecting exceptional value for money. At best is was ok. The dinning room was very dark and uninspiring and the food very expensive. We only saw staff at breakfast ad the hotel lacked atmosphere and the carpets were threadbare. We would not return

We are dissapointed to read your tripadvisor comments, and firstly must aplogies for not meeting your expectations. Having recently completed a revue of our pricing, we are more than comfortable with our price structure, taking into account what other 4* inns charge and our operational costs and 20% VAT. We agree with you that some of our carpets have sufferd... More
