we stayed here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place. The room was immaculately clean and spacious as was the bathroom. A very grand place to stay with a touch of Jude's unique taste which made it a very interesting place ( meant in a good way ). Greeted by Herman in... More

You can easily find this superb mini castle located in Bonnyrigg, 8 miles from The City. First impressions as you turn into the drive are delightful. A real castle with turret! You'll be greeted in the imposing porch by Jude, a vivacious and genuinely gracious host. After the formalities, we were shown to our room, which was a good size,... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night only, as we were in the area visiting family. The room was spacious and we had a four-poster bed! The breakfast was generous and tasty. Jude gave us a friendly welcome and talked us through the facilities. The decor was quirky, interesting and full of character. We will definitely use this hotel... More

My husband and I enjoyed the accommodation. Lots of character! We had a wonderful breakfast each morning, choosing exactly what we craved! We found the close by bus stop convenient to take into Edinburgh. Jude was more than helpful with all aspects of our stay.

You will feel well looked after at this guesthouse as the host is positively attentive and eager to ensure you have a good stay. The guesthouse is homely, quirky, interesting and... More

We booked 1 night here due to attending a family bbq close buy and it was just so much easier to stay somewhere than do all of the travelling. This guest house was the first that appeared in our search and in all honesty, the websites make this place look nice. However after arriving at The Retreat it quickly became... More

We chose the retreat as a convenient stopover en route to Edinburgh. Before we arrived I received a text from Jude checking our arrival time. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door and shown into the most incredible little hotel I think I've ever stayed in. The layout and decor are marvellously eccentric, while the facilities (bathroom, shower etc)... More

We stayed here for 1 night before the Edinburgh Marathon in the 4 poster room so we didn't spent too much time in the guest house but the room was an excellent size with a large bathroom and lots of character. The first thing you notice when you drive up to the guest house is the actual building which reminded... More
