It is situated opposite Edinburgh Race Course so as we found when there is racing on you cannot park anywhere near this guest house until about 7pm.. We found the room to be very small and the en-suite was not very big. The toilet would only flush occasionally and the wait to flush again meant a wait of about 6... More

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to respond to your comments. Parking is very busy on race days, this is an issue out of my control as it clearly states on the site that we only have on street parking and no private parking. The toilet you raised as an issue with us when you were here and has... More

For this 100mile section, we decided to start in Dunbar and finish in Falkirk rather than the more conventional west to east route,... More

Just what you want when away from home, to be looked after by excellent, but not over fussy Hosts. We stayed for a 2 nights. The room had lovely period features, and was beautiful and clean, with a breakfast to get you started for the day. The Guest House overlooks Musselburgh Racecourse and one of the oldest, if not the... More

Only stayed for 2 nights, shame it wasnt more. Lovely house, cleanliness and comfort 10 out of 10. Lovely location and yummy breakfast :) Hosts could not have been more friendly, booked taxis for us and let us know about the buses. Only 20 mins out of Edinburgh on bus and 10 mins walk from lovely beach.

Me and my partner stayed here 20/08/14 as we were going to musselburgh races. Really nice guest house, very welcoming cant fault the hosts robert and linda. Had read some negative reviews but struggle to understand some people especially the one that said not enough storage as there was LOADS. Breakfast really good as well.
