We had a fantastic experince in the Innkeeper's Lodge. We stayed two nights and the views were amazing, as others have noted.
We were a bit wary though, after reading some less favourable reviews, and as we arrived we were slightly apprehensive, which was a mistake. The check-in was smooth and courteous, the welcome was warm. The room was stunning, beautifully laid out with amazing views. Our evening meal was excellent, served efficiently by a very cheerful waitress. Breakfast? Well the food was very good, and the breakfast host, Leigh, is a treasure.
We were in the room closest to the railway, and I am a very light sleeper, but the trains were no problem. The presence of the bridge adds to, rather than detracting from, the whole experience - and, no, we aren't trainspotters.
Can't fault the place at all.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Few hotels in and around Edinburgh can match this lodge for its views or place in literary history. Many of its 14 cosy rooms look out over the iconic Forth Road Bridge and the Firth of the Forth estuary, and it's said that legendary author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote part of his famous novel Kidnapped here - there's even a mention of The Hawes Inn in the book. Just 10 miles from the city centre, the South Queensferry lodge is an ideal base for visiting Scotland's historic capital, where you can explore Edinburgh Castle, the shops of the Royal Mile or the city's many museums and restaurants.Also perfect for golfers, it's within striking distance of Carnoustie and St Andrew's and close to the birthplace of golf at the East Neuk of Fife. The Tudor Gothic Dalmeny House and Georgian Hopetoun House are also well worth a visit. ... more less
