-review by Deirdre and Alastair fae Edinburgh
Excellent stay, amazing food , helpful friendly staff.  It might be a cliche but this place is a real gem, clean cozy rooms.  Kenny, Rose and the bar staff are courteous and attentive.  Stayed for a week and would recommend to everyone.  Plenty to see and do in Edinburgh.   One recommendation the shower could do with grab rail but thoroughly enjoyable stay.  Thank you to all the staff (including Sam the dog)!

Our third stay - we love this hotel - very warm and welcoming people

-review by TL
First stay here to check out parts of the Pentland Way and the Allan Ramsay Trails around the village - an exercise on behalf of the Friends of the Pentlands.  Despite the blustery rain and biting winds outside, the hotel was a cosy refuge with a warm open fire, welcoming service, comfortable room and an excellent evening menu (duck confit recommended) washed down with a fine wine and a good single malt.  What more could follow that?

-review by Andrew Marsden, Edinburgh
Great food and staff couldn't have been better, friendly and 10/10 for service.  This is a great location for walkers and full of local history.

Due to all trains from Edinburgh being cancelled due to the adverse weather and all city hotels being full I found this gem of a place to stay overnight.  Fantastic food, good beer and amazing friendly staff.  So glad I picked his hotel and I intend to come back and visit later in the year.

A great place to saty that felt like home - Thanks - on my return to list.

-review by Ewan, Wiltshire
What a fantastic welcome. We just popped in as my partner was not feeling well so a cup of tea was the best thing to do. The lovely lady who I am now thinking was Claudia gave me a beautiful smile and a very warm welcome. Ordering a pot of tea for 2 she asked if I would like anything else. Well had I not been diabetic I think I could have eaten all the home made cake on show followed by a second course of scones. Anyway the scones looked so tempting I had to try one. It was a home made scone served with home made jam. Delicious does not do it justice maybe out of this world would do it justice. I am not greedy so I decided to share a little of my scone with the lovely dog that kept me company. Yes if he could talk I am sure his compliments would have been equal to mine. My only complaint must be that I was not lucky enough to enjoy the wonderful food that they undoubtedly cook here. Also if we have to go back at some point for the daughter I think we might also indulge in a night here to break the journey. Thank you for everything such a shame my partner was so ill at the time
