Stayed at hotel on 20th September after a late booking. Hotel stay was good as in standard of hotel, however room we were allocated was extremely disappointing, cramped, small en suite and poor ventilation. Leaving street facing window open was only option which meant noisy and the treat of the smokers below smoke wafting in the window. En suite also poor, cramped and entry and exit to shower over bath was challenging and down right dangerous. The fact that the bath filled up while having a shower was pretty disgusting also. Ate in the hotel and choice and quality of food was good, however everything way over priced for the standard of the hotel overall, ie value for money poor. Made our feelings known about room at checkout and individual at the desk said they would let maintenance know about issue with the bath. No other comments on our input on the standard of the room, or "sorry to hear about your dissappointment" etc....
Heard a lot of good reports of Greywalls, and my first experience did not let me down.
There was a problem when we arrived as the hotel did not have our Expedia booking, fortunately I had a copy on my blackberry. The manager promptly arranged for a glass of champagne for the mix up and put as into the holiday mood right away.
Everything was great: hotel, staff, food and the weather!
The only point to note that the main restaurant was in the middle of being decorated whilst we were staying, but we had the use of their 3 remaining dining rooms, not a problem.
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.

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/

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.
