Felt like a bit of a dupe when we arrived. The actual rooms are in a huge extension out the back not in the old building. The place is huge and a bit like a holiday park. Staff are lovely but the decor, facilities and food left a lot to be desired.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am please to hear about the staff. I will investigate why one of the team members did not share the same attitude. Hopefully we can welcome you back soon. Kind regards Dirk

Generally in good condition but rather outdated now. Many of the guests (many Americans) clearly there for the golf and the course did look pristine. Depending on which room you are given, it’s a bit of a maze and the lifts at one point stopped.And left me stranded inside, refusing to move in either direction. Food mediocre at best. It’s a fine looking hotel in stunning grounds but the details left it far short of perfect.

Good Hotel Near Edinburgh

Pros: Friendly staff, good location for seeing Lothian area. Good Scottish breakfast.
Cons: Beds were a bit on the hard side.
Location: Hill end snow sport centre, Deep Sea World, Edinburgh. Livingston
Good welcome, quite a walk to the bedrooms from reception. Rooms clean and tidy. Staff very friendly. Bed bit on the hard side for my liking. I would stay there again.

Short family break

Pros: Pool was busy when we stayed but great facility. Breakfast was super.
Cons: Maybe more dining options for younger guests.
Location: Set within extensive grounds / golf course. Good access to motorway and city of Edinburgh.
Stayed for 2 nights with teenage children. Lovely country setting yet within easy reach of Edinburgh.
