      Spa, and the staff there, first class.

      Room bit small and lacking in storage for executive class. Told that it was same as normal room except for the view. While the view was good it would be more honest to say that that is the only difference in the price between ordinary and executive type.

      view was stunning

      I found the room very cold and bedding (throw and show pillows) stained also shower was hot and cold and not very good - I find even premier inns etc have a better shower systems. The bar prices were very very high.

      Stayed in this hotel as part of a wedding party, the food and service could not be faulted, the room was large and comfortable apart from the double bed being on the small side.

      We found that the bar prices were very expensive not only the spirit price but also £3 for a coke was outrageous.

    • Couple
      5.0

      - The view - Close to Edinburgh - Having Spa facilities in the hotel - Spa treatments - Lounge and bar area. - Free parking - Having a bath and large shower. - Beach and golf course directly outside was nice for walks. - Red headed/bearded bar tender was very friendly and helpful.

      - Poor servive throughout hotel and staff were unfriendly, distracted and in a hurry. - Hotel felt dark because of the small windows throughout the building, even in the room. - The room did not have the expected facilities such as mini bar/fridge, hair dryer, satellite tv, radio, alarm clock, dvd player, toilet brush and air vent in bathroom. - Lack of hygiene was beginning to show in the bathroom with rust and mould in corners, losing paint on hinges and handles. Waterproof sealant was mouldy and coming loose. - Restaurant service was disgraceful. It took 40 minutes to clear and reset an empty table before we could be seated. Dirty menus. Poorly English speaking waiters. 20 minutes wait for wrong drinks. Wrong bill given. (All this whilst the restaurant was half full) and in the morning it took 25 minutes to be seated for breakfast and the orders for the table next to us were missed. - Pool/Spa area was tired. Buttons and switches were dirty with some mould showing. The outdoor jacuzzi bubbles weren't working and there was no instructions for it. - Internet should be FREE! It was ridiculously expensive. - Pillows are far too soft and went totally flat. Management should actively train their staff into being polite and taking an active interest in their customers and improving hygiene.

      Wonderful location incredibly close to golf course and beach. located within easy walking distance for late evening or early morning stroll. Excellent views of Bass Rock. Easy parking in quiet road in front of hotel or in parking area opposite. Attractive garden. Very large restaurant where evening meal and breakfast served. Good choice of menu and professionally presented and served.

      Close to some world class golf courses!

      The Elevator was broken and this was not dislosed when we booked or checked in.... this was an inconvenience! Spa and Pool closes at 9:30 pm and this is not convenient for late golf tee times.

      Very luxury hotel with friendly staff. Thank you. We already booked next visit.

      very comfortable room,clean and well maintained.Sea view rooms provide picture card seascapes.Staff in bar and dining room very attentive.

      Lift was not functioning for 5 of our 6 days visit.Quality of breakfast started well and went progressively downhill to finally become mediocre.We stayed until Saturday and noticed that the emphasis on service we received fell away Friday due to wedding on friday afternoon.for example our room had not been serviced by 5pm that day.I assume that due to the influx of guests for the wedding that breakfast on Saturday morning was served as buffet style not immediately available and lukewarm.I would only recommend hotel up to Thursday if weddings was imminent on Friday or Saturday

      I visited the hotel for a short break with my mother. We found the staff to be attentive and helpful st all times, including reception, chambermaids and dining room. I used the gym, pool and really enjoyed the spa especially the outdoor part. I do intend to return to the hotel in the future.

      Unfortunately the lift was out of action for the whole of our stay. Staff were most apologetic but it did concern us as my mother is elderly and has a heart condition. As we were on the first floor she managed but could not have coped otherwise. If returning next summer I would wish to know that the lift would be functional before I booked. A four star hotel should have had this repaired before the summer season or made it clear before guests arrived.

      Rooms are very poorly decorated; business hptels are even better.Payment procedures with business cards are very long and complicated, I was asked my card three times!

      The location

      After paying a large amount for the room getting robbed for internet access leaves a very bad taste in my mouth next time a bed and breakfast.

    • Couple

      Breakfast was delicious. Room was very comfortable.

      We were regularly disturbed by cleaners and people looking for their room - knocks on door.

      The hotel is beautiful, amazing view from the bar and restaurant, I really enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool .

      Quite a lot , first I would expect the have free internet on my laptop but had to pay 4 pounds for 30 min of internet, unbelievable ! no heaten at all in the bedroom, really cold at night (as we live in scotland) . Impossible to swim in the swimming pool and relax after my massage as there was a swimming class for children , it was very noisy and couldn t event use the swimming pool. Very busy outdoor swimming pool, could barely moveand have some space.NO Hairdryer in the room after using the swimming pool !!! Breakfast was really mediocre for the price .

      Enjoyed the spa and the evening meal-good to chill out with great location looking out to the sea.

      Rooms were a bit small .

    • Older travelers

      The first course at dinner on the first night. The food in general was very good. The view of the sea from our room.Good full spaced public rooms.

      Although we should have arrived with evidence of our online booking, the lady dealing with us seemed to not be insightful enough to know the booking agent had changed the names around, ie first name put as the last name etc. For the cost charged for 2 nights stay of a doubleroom, our room did not look like the rooms photographed on line, was very small with only one bedside table. Textile furnishings old looking. Bed duvet had holes in it.Wall paint old and marked, one wall in particular..I Also called a phone number I was given for the hotel on Booked.net to ask about dry cleaning services and was given the wrong information on behalf of the hotel.
