Positive Reviews

Roadside location was a hit with drivers

This property reportedly enjoyed a fairly peaceful location in the countryside east of Edinburgh and was a hit with visitors, especially drivers who loved the easy access from the A1. It put reviewers within easy driving distance of Musselburgh promenade, beaches, golf courses, train stations, racecourses, Edinburgh Airport and the beautiful centre of Edinburgh with its many attractions. The availability of free on-site parking was another bonus.

Simple but clean and comfy rooms

Guests largely said the rooms were simple but most found them to be spacious, well-cleaned and well-equipped enough for a shorter stay. Many reviewers were upbeat about the generously-sized Hypnos beds, describing them as comfy and cosy.

Food and service praised

Guests were often impressed with the customer service provided by cheerful, helpful and professional staff who regularly went the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. The adjacent restaurant pub set in a modernized traditional Scottish building won praise for its family-friendly atmosphere, wide-ranging menu of well-cooked meals including buffet options, reasonable prices and friendly service. Moreover, the plentiful and appetizing breakfasts were said to be decent value for money.

Negative Reviews

Claims rooms had some drawbacks

A few critics bemoaned their inability to adjust the room temperature to their liking in extreme weather. There were also occasional reports of bathrooms that could have been more thoroughly cleaned. Some guests suggested it was time to revamp the bathrooms and give them a more modern look.

Some doubts over value for money

Some guests who paid steeper rates to stay during busier periods occasionally doubted whether their stays represented fair value for money.

Mixed feelings about free Wi-Fi

The free Wi-Fi speeds left something to be desired, according to guests accessing the service in certain corners of the building.
