we booked this hotel at the last minute (heard about it via laterooms but booked direct and they gave me the same deal and included breakfast which was a bonus). got there late but David and his wife were very hospitable. We had our own key so could get back when we wanted the next night from Edinburgh which is not too far away for the Fringe (35 mins or so over Forth Bridge, though centre of Edin is a nightmare until they finish the tram). Decor is in need of some "titivation" as the present owners have not been in for long and not had much chance to update it yet. but they will I am sure. Room was nice clean and spacious for us 4 - 2 older teenagers not used to sharing a room with parents !! Breakfast was great too. especially the haggis and sausage ! Very friendly and to be recommended even though the hotel itself is not a visually stunning place. Also our room nice and quiet even though hotel is on a main road. we were at the back. But the town of Coaltown is quite quiet anyway and I suspect all rooms are quiet enough. Bed very comfortable and had a good night's sleep. off road parking adequate. near the road but felt safe enough. there is a chance to join regularsat the hotel bar if desired. no wi-fi yet but think it will come.
