This was our third stay at this hotel over a number of years and unfortunately it didn't live up to its previous high standards . There were 3 grounds for complaint . Firstly we had bother with our radiators , whether this was down to us not operating the controls properly or not it was only resolved on the 2nd time of complaining when an electrical heater was placed in our room although the radiator did in fact come on later that night . Our second complaint was due to the poor condition of the window in our room ( room 206 ) which led to the window making such a racket when the wind blew that it was almost impossible to sleep ! We had 2 windy nights during our 3 night stay and so ended up very tired by the time we were returning home ! We did only complain about this on checking out but only received a half hearted response that it would be reported to the manager . In my complaint I had said that in my opinion until such time as the window is fixed the room should not be let out during bad weather or on windy days which taking into account the position of the hotel would be frequent but again this suggestion did not seem to be taken seriously however I think if the hotel staff or manager had to spend a night in that room they might realise the seriousness of the problem ! Lastly my third complaint relates to the restaurant and in particular to the lack of vegetarian sausages in the vegetarian breakfast The staff did apologise but to be without for 3 days is bad
Only a few miles off the A1 northbound, location ideal for Edinbugh without being actually near to the city, alas the post code and our Skoda satnav, left us confused and 1/4 mile off where we wanted to be, but at least on the right road. Nice location, with reasonable parking able to accommdate the wedding reception "full Scottish attire" on the Saturday. Stayed for two nights, first night in a small room not to our liking and not as booked, but were received a credit and were moved for Saturday evening, to a room of size and spec. we had expected. Accepting the Saturday wedding reception and our return from the Edinburgh tattoo Sunday morning, we were kept awake until gone 2am by guests simple talking in the lounge one floor below and off from the reception, to be woken by a hover at 6am wasn't appreciated. We only had breakfast at the hotel, everything provided as might be expected/

.I stayed two nights and can't wait to return. Perfection says it all, every aspect of this hotel is superb. Country house comfort, immaculate, warm fires and deep couches. Food exceptional, coffee the best I have tasted since Italy !!!
Lots of relaxing places to sit and read, staff, every single one of them-truly a credit to the management. The rooms are fabulous, even the single "CADDY" room is lovely, and very comfortable.
My favourite hotel now and I shan't hesitate to book again when I ant another wee decompression break.
We had a lovely stay at the Nether Abbey. It was my wife's first trip to Scotland, and I had not visited for over 20 years.
North Berwick is truly charming and we found a warm welcome wherever we went.
The hotel was perfect in every way, very clean and tidy, as were the rooms, which were comfortable and airy.
The staff, without exception, were fantastic, friendly without being over-familiar - a VERY fine line...
They are all a credit to the Management, and if they are reading this review, "thanks, guys!"
There was a varied and interesting menu, and the dishes were of an extremely high quality, both in ingredients and execution.
It is cliche to say that the best steak comes from Scotland, but in this case it happens to be true - meat lovers would love the Rib-Eye with Whisky and Mustard sauce (unashamed foodie here, as you can tell).
My wife and I have stayed in hotels all over the world, and this establishment could easily rank with any of those.
We had a fantastic time and would recommend the Nether Abbey WITHOUT hesitation.
I hope that we can go back one day.

Overall our stay was ok but we were consistently made to feel as though we were outsiders as we don't golf. Small things like being given a table that wasn't convenient to eat at as the others were reserved for the golfers. Being seated at the table that didn't have flowers on it. It seemed as though it was a signal to the staff that we weren't part of "the group". Since we are both in our sixties and certainly fit in with the majority of the golfer age group it was almost like being back in junior high school and not being a part of the popular kids. Not something I would want to repeat and certainly have never felt at other hotels or B&Bs. The actual building was lovely with almost a North American feel regarding lots of space. We had a walk in shower and the towels were fresh and fluffy. The food was mediocre. I tried the Scottish potato scone and couldn't eat it as it was very greasy. They did have nice stewed prunes. We enjoyed the proximity to some lovely sandy beaches, but we had to find out about local points of interest on our own.

Prosperous agricultural East Lothian lies due east of the capital. Haddington, the county town, is rich and handsome, and due south the Lammermuir Hills are home to some charming villages. North Berwick, a genteel Victorian-Edwardian resort half an hour by rail from Edinburgh, looks onto Bass Rock, home to over 100,000 seabirds. Gullane ('Gillin') houses the Muirfield golf course, while nearby Musselburgh is the region's busiest racecourse.
