The rooms are small and quite old, but overall good for the price. We had two twin beds, which can't be combined, as they're on different sides of the wall, a small table with tea-making facilities, a small shower and a tiny TV. The wi-fi wasn't very good. The breakfast was really nice, but cutlery was a bit greasy. The... More

Booked for 2 nights. On arrival we were greeted by the manager and another member of staff who immediately offered to take our bags up to our room for us.

Stayed for two nights. Nice comfortable hotel. Rooms very clean. The bus stop into the city is right outside the hotel and takes about 20 mins. Breakfast both mornings very good. All the staff very helpful. Will definitely be staying again.

Small room, tired bed, poor cushions. Nice bathroom, believe I was told it was the only room with a bath. This was an en route stop for us, stayed outside Edinburgh because while the price here was not exactly budget, in Edinburgh I found costs of B&B and hotels excessive. Very nice pub here, kind & enthusiastic landlord and pleasant... More

We spent one night at the Laird & Dog Inn. The people are wonderfully kind and friendly. The rooms are small but that is not a problem. The bath room was clean but there was no mat for the shower and they provided only one towel. We spent some time in their bar and it was like being in Cheers.... More

Stayed in a lovely B and B round the corner and needed a place to eat that would allow dogs. I contacted the pub via email and received an instant response, dogs are allowed in sections of the pub, which was ideal. I ordered smoked haddock and pea risotto, and my husband and daughter both had the chicken stuffed with... More

Been here numerous times for food and drinks with friends. Can't fault the food, it's lovely and worth paying the price they charge for it. Good portion sizes and fairly quick service. Drinks are cheaper as its outskirts of Edinburgh! Hope this helps :)
