All the lodgings in the area charge about £100 a night during Edinburgh festival and are usually fully booked. This place only costs about £55 a night but always has space. Read into that what you will. The staff are friendly and well meaning but the rooms are a definite afterthought to the wet trade downstairs.

The rooms are mostly quite good but certainly not luxury. Some look like they've had a recent refurb but the little non ensuite room I had wasn't that good. The room was small and in need of decorating. The separate shower room was a bit grim.

They only serve food at lunchtime not evenings and it's an unadventurous typical pub menu.

I just think they're missing a trick. The location is great and the town is full of people itching to spend their money. Most places in Queensferry sell a refined menu and charge quite a bit. The Priory Lodge over the road has smart rooms, charges £90 and is always fully booked.

They have this odd rule that you hang your room key at the bottom of the stairs near the bar when you go out so they know who's out if there was a fire. But basically it's saying to everyone, 'Hi, I'm out and here is my key if you want to to in my room and help yourself to my laptop'.

Overall, I'm happy to stay here because the price is really good for the area and the rooms are alright. The location is really good and they have a free car park. Just think the owners aren't really taking advantage of a potential goldmine.

I visited the Stag Head for food yesterday as it has just started doing meals during the day. The food and quality was excellent. The waiting staff were very polite and attentive. I would recommend the Stag Head to any one who is visiting South Queensferry for excellent, good value, pub food. It is a welcome addition to the many already established restaurants in the Ferry. Will be back very soon.

I was not told in advance about the disco happening on the night which would affect the room I was staying in. Arriving at 8.30pm after driving 400 miles, I had no option but to stay. The disco went on until midnight 20, and the bar did not close until 1 20. The noise prevented me from sleeping until after 01.20.
The breakfast was basic but OK - DIY instant coffee, juice and milk in the fridge.
They have discos on fridays and saturdays, so beware!
There was also quite a lot of traffic noise, late night and early morning.

Room Tip: Don't take the rooms on the first floor which are over the disco/bar.
