all ok for a nighter, little bits that could have been better, bedside light did not work, and the TV was tiny and a wee bit wobbly with signal which seemed to come and go!! Breakfast was good, service was friendly and excellent, local knowledge happily given

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

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.
