What a great place for a stay near Edinburgh. You get a slice of the countryside and within easy reach of the city; bus stop right outside the Laird and Dog. The room was clean and comfy, beds too. The ensuite was a little tired otherwise would have given 5. All staff without exception were helpful and friendly, always went...

This is one of the best budget hotels I've stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. All of the staff were equally friendly and helpful. Cracking breakfast, and for once, I didn't feel like a leper because I was vegetarian. I even got a tin-foiled roll for elevenses. I spend a lot of time visiting schools and I...
