I stayed here for two nights after a business trip in mid May, mainly to see Bass Rock and the Isle of May. I enjoyed the ideal location, close to the harbour, the beach, several cafés and restaurants, and numerous little shops, and the friendly and familiar atmosphere. The staff was extremely helpful in getting a jacket back to me that I left behind in town. I definitely recommend staying here and already look forward to coming back one day, hopefully with the whole family then.

A very disappointing visit. Bedrooms are very small and the facilities are dated. The pictures on the website are very clever at giving a better impression than the actual experience. The room was overpriced and when we requested an allowance for leaving without breakfast we were declined. Maximising profit rather than the guest experience. Suggest you avoid unless as a last resort.

Came for an evening meal. Cullen skink starter was fantastic. Sea bass main was perfectly cooked and loads of it. Lovely ambience. Reasonably priced. Can’t fault our experience here at all. Would happily come again.

We stayed here at the end of March 2022 and were in room 6 which has two dormer windows and a massive comfy bed, very modern,fresh and clean hotel with a decent sized beer garden at rear. Decent breakfast and nice friendly staff, hotel is in an ideal location and we felt it was a bargain for the price. We will definetly be back and would highly recommend staying here if you visit north Berwick.

Great wee hotel bang in the centre of North Berwick with free car parking at the rear of the hotel in the public car park or if that is too busy park on the front and its only a 2min walk. Hotel is both modern and traditional in feel - the bar/dining/restaurant/breakfast room is modern and really nice. Our room was comfortable and spacious with a good sized en-suite . Absolutely brilliant for a short stay break !

Really friendly and well located little hotel. Great room, comfy bed and an awesome shower. Right next to the harbour and beach, really lovely place to stay😊👍🏻. Went for an early morning run along the coast before a fresh and beautiful cooked breakfast 🙂

I could give this place the benefit of the doubt and could put our unfortunate experience down to a post COVID lockdown issue, but ... On arrival, on the main entrance door, there were 3 adverts for various staff positions which did not exactly fill us with confidence about our stay. 8 of us had booked 4 nights at this establishment. When we asked if we could have breakfast at 7:30 on our first morning, we were told that there would not be any breakfast staff on duty until 8:00am. We had to leave at 8:00 am to get to our first Golf course on time, so no breakfast on Day 1 and no refund on our B&B rate was even considered. Our Tee times on Day 2 permitted us the opportunity to test their breakfast out after 8:00 am. Do not order the scrambled eggs. It was that embarrassing concoction of “packet eggs”, which in my view sums up the “quality” of any B&B. Rooms were only made up if you left a sign on your door saying “Please clean me”, but there were not enough of these signs given the number of rooms, so usually 2 or 3 of us came back in the evening to our room being in exactly the same state we had left it in when we had left for our Golf in the morning. Our experience was basically the classic Fawlty Towers experience. Overall, we were very disappointed with the “quality” of our stay and it was very clear to us that the management had no intention to compensate us for our lack of service while we were there. None of us the 8 of us would ever stay there again.

This hotel has a great location. Not far from the beaches and shopping area. Upgrades have been made to the rooms with fresh decor and accessories. Traditional furniture has been painted to give them a shabby chic look which fits in with the new decor. Our room was large and overlooked the new beer garden and car park. There was little noise and most patrons left before 10pm. The room was very clean and hand sanitiser was in the room for your use. The beer garden is very pretty and a lot of thought has gone into creating a comfortable and safe environment. Breakfast is in the Bistro which set us up for the day. The staff worked hard and were busy though they were always polite and welcoming. We had booked dinner B & B. The food in the evenings was of a very high standard and we never felt rushed. Seemed very popular as they had to turn people away.
