“Brilliant B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stayed at Orchard House for our first ever trip to Scotland, which was an ideal location to take in The Open golf at Muirfield and various attractions of Edinburgh. The landlady, Anne, was the perfect hostess, with her local knowledge and friendly conversation - always willing to advise the best ways to get to your destination for the day. Excellent, quality accommodation in very peaceful surroundings for a relaxing break. We would definitely recommend a stay at Orchard House - Dan and Melanie, Norfolk.

Especially choose Orchard House behave of some boutique hotel websites. There was no doubt, this was the one. We stayed 2 nights to visit Rosslyn chapel, which is close, and the Borders ( for the Abbeys ). The Orchard is located in Rosewell and although that's very close to Edinburgh the B&B is on large own grounds and in the country site. Just fantastic. The suite, which was the Carlington ( I think ), was good and cosy. The views over the fields and horses was just incredible for someone living in town. Anne is a very good hostess giving a warm welcome, but as well respecting your privacy. The breakfast is a feast and Anne is around if you would ever need anything more. But the table was to small for all the food. A wonderful stay. WiFi free.

We spent a very comfortable night with Anne recently - she is welcoming and very accommodating, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the setting is what i would call a cosy hideaway - its peaceful, in the country and somewhere you relax immediately - a special place.

We stayed last weekend for two nights as were going to a Wedding.

Anne, the lady of the house, greeted us with warmth and a very friendly welcome.

The house itself is stunning and does not feel like a B&B. It felt like home. The rooms were stunning and clean.

Th views are outstanding and Anne cooked us a lovely breakfast each morning.

I cant fault the place. Brilliant

Orchard House is a true gem in the little village of Rosewell, home-owner Mrs Anne provides you service with a warm smile and lots of humour, Orchard House exists from recycled materials and has a "green"policy, this was nice to know as we used plane train and automobile to get there, this way we could compensate our footprint ( a little )
Mrs Anne provided us with a delicous breakfast, good tips ( park and ride! ) and wonderful stories.
Highly recommended!

We stayed here for one night on a recent driving holiday in Scotland. We decided to stop off on route to Edinburgh to visit Rosslyn Chapel, Orchard House is just a couple of miles from there. However, if you plan to visit Edinburgh it is also within easy reach, in fact I would have happily stayed here another night compared to staying in the City Centre as we did!

The B&B is located in a lovely quiet location in it's own large grounds. Anne is a wonderful hostess and we were greeted with coffee and biscuits and well looked after at breakfast next morning, with plenty of food options on offer in the bright breakfast room.

We had two rooms Rosslyn, which is a doulbe that faces the front of the house and Temple which is a twin room which faces and the back/side. Both rooms were lovely. Ours (Temple) had a wonderfully large bathroom and shower. Please see photos.

All in all a lovely stay all be it too short!

Room Tip: If you are booking a double the Rosslyn is lovely

We stayed at this place as a group for 2 nights. We really had a great and comfortable stay. The host was very friendly and treated us well. The rooms were amazing. They served us with a lovely breakfast. I really wish we have stayed longer. This place offered us one of the best accommodation we ever had. All of us had felt the warm welcome of the staff and the owner. Surely no one would be disappointed in their stay at this place.
