Folly stay
Although small with limited space our room was comfortable and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Excellent choice for breakfast. well located for a stroll to the beach and into town. Parking can be an issue on busy days. Would certainly go back.

Sunny day and pleasant stay in North Berwick.
Good location although no parking at hotel. Local golf course had spaces. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was a bit small(despite being for 3) due the sloping ceilings. Breakfast was adequate, paricularly in these times. Overall I would recommend the hotel.
