We went to the Hawes Inn in March and it was great. The rooms were lovely and very traditional looking.
The pub itself was very good and had a nice atmosphere. In terms of location you cant get much better, the train station is a 5 minute walk away and there are regular, cheap trains to Edinburgh.
The views across the river are great and there are many nice walks you can go on around the area.
The only downside is you are very close to the Forth Rail Bridge and you can sometimes hear the trains going past. However we can honestly say this did not bother us at all while we were there.
Overall this B&B was great value for money and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go to Edinburgh but not be in the centre.
- 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
