Great setting but outdated and expensive.

Posted 19-Sep-2016
Pros: Views and staff. Bed very comfortable.
Cons: Furnishings in suite need updating and bathroom needs replacing
Location: . Good walks on beach. Golf course just at perimeter of hotel. Stunning view across Firth of Forth.
Lovely spacious suite but furniture needs updating and bath too small. Beautiful scenery across golf course to beach. Restaurant very pricey. Do not request a well done steak it was like eating charcoal. £34.00 for a bottle of Rioja which would retail in the supermarket for £9.00 was very excessive.. Staff were polite, friendly, and helpful.

Ein angenehmer Kurzaufenthalt

Posted 15-Aug-2016
Pros: Das großzügige Standardzimmer und die sehr schöne Lage.
Cons: Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis beim Frühstück wäre noch zu optimieren.
Location: Der Ortskern ist recht gemütlich und der Strand sehr nah.Die Landschaft ist eher lieblich. In der Nähe befindet sich ein Burgruine.
Wir haben hier einen kurzen Zwischenstopp auf unserer Rückreise aus den Highlands eingelegt. Gebucht war nur ein Standardzimmer, welches großzügig groß und angenehm gewesen ist. Die Lage in diesem beschaulichen Ort ist optimal. Ein kurzer Weg über den angeschlossenen Golfplatz und man befindet sich am Strand. Hunde sind in diesem Hotel gestattet und werden wirklich willkommen geheißen. Wir werden wieder hier übernachten, wenn wir wieder nach Schottland reisen.

On the beach

Posted 19-Jul-2016
A very unique beach and golf field side hotel. Vintage design and classic decor. Reasonable size room and very delicious breakfast. The only thing that was annoying is that the room was really hot while the weather outside was 12c. So we ordered a fan. The other thing is the swimming pool area was full of parents with their children and it's not big enough to share and enjoy it.

very relaxing

Posted 20-Apr-2016
Location: Golf course outside hotel - 10 minute stroll to the town centre along the beach
Very clean hotel - food excellent - only issue was that the lift was out of order and didn't look as though any repairs were imminent - fortunately we were on the first floor!

Great hotel but my room was a little tired, the curtains where torn in my room. Also the bar menu for food is not great, I had the fish which was very hard and tasteless.

Really enjoyed our weekend stay! Hotel staff was very nice and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Views are stunning!! Only complaint was the water pressure in the room...little more than a trickle. Spa was great but small with quite a few people vying for chairs and space in the hot tub.

Nice location and room was good

Posted 27-Feb-2016
Pros: Location. Room cleanlieness
Cons: Consistency of service
Location: Good surroundings and views of firth. Easy driving to Roslin Abbey and various high class Golf
Reception staff a bit aloof. Service in general pretty good. Couple of things that were well below standard for a hotel of this standard. 1 on first day bacon at breakfast was a disgrace and could not even be classed as poor streaky. 2. Restaurant had habit of running short eg cheese at dinner and certain mains early in service. 3. Checking bill was really guesswork and far too much work.

Return visit to an old favourite!

Posted 28-Jan-2016
Pros: Its amazing situation & luxurious spa.
Cons: Quantities of some of the main courses served at dinner.
Location: Coastal walking. Cycling. Beaches. There is a station at North Berwick, opening up lots of opportunities. Flight museum & bird life centre close by.
30 years on this hotel still remains a firm favourite. Superbly situated beside the sea, giving access to miles of beautiful sandy beaches & coves, it is a wonderful base for coastal walking.Upon return, or in poor weather,the hotel spa is the best we have come across! There are so many varied experiences, the facility never appears crowded. The swimming pool is huge and we loved the indoor/outdoor hydro pool, equipped with an optional massage by hot waterfall.The staff are all friendly & helpful & the accommodation clean & comfortable. The food is delicious, but more thought needs to be given to the quantity of some of the main courses (my husband was given a helping of meat & four small carrots, insufficient for a hungry man, whereas I enjoyed venison steak, vegetable & mash). On our first night, the meal progressed smoothly, but on the Monday, (25th.Jan.) there were very long waits between courses. The waiters were hard-working & energetic, which left us wondering whether the kitchen was understaffed.But, all in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & can't wait to go back.
