“OK if you are a smoker and don't mind being overcharged”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

After walking through the many cigarette buts which were scattered around the front door we were greeted by a male who did not graduate with honours for welcome and charm - shown to small room so small hospitality tray kept in wardrobe which stank of cigarette smoke - bedside shelf falling off - window open to get rid of smell of stale smokethen noticed all the cigarette laid in the roof valley immediately outside the room - When complained about the smell was informed by Mr Charming that they operated a no smoking policy but couldn't enforce it - advised to keep the window open!!!

Poor value at £95 refused to stay in an ashtray and left - can't comment on food but would avoid staying

Room Tip: walk in with a hacking cough

Photos on the internet of the rooms only show the two best rooms. Others were cramped. Internet tells you that you have sky tv in the rooms... but you do not. Also, tells you that you have wifi in the rooms but could not get it in my room. Would not say it was worth the £95 per night considering what you could get at other hotels. The price it probably high because ot tourists visiting Roslin Chapel.

On the positive, the staff were very friendly and always willing to help with a smile. Food was good but over priced (again... tourists).

We didn't stay here but we did have lunch in the conservatory. This was the best steak I ever had. Ribeye Steak + Haggis + Whisky Sauce + Chips = The Best Steak Ever!!

It was cooked perfectly and was unbelievably tender!! Yum!!

Nom nom nom!!

Had a lovely lunch here recently after a visit to Rosslyn Chapel. Very cosy, lovely food, the only problem was that the service was quite slow.

Stayed here when on business. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Service was great and very friendly. Food was lovely in the grail resturant which had some great photographs of Roslin Chapel on the walls. I had some problems getting onto the wifi in my room however the hotel manager managed to fix this for me. I would stay here again.
