We booked our room very last minute and were lucky to get one as the hotel was hosting a wine tasting and was extremely busy. Our room even though a family room was very small - but that's old buildings for you. The shaving light wasn't working - new bulb? The wall light to the left of the window wasn't...

Lovely Inn. Not huge but just what we needed. The dining room is lovely with big portions and the breakfast included haggis. We were not left hungry! Stayed in a 4 poster room.

We stayed here for just one night recently, but it was a very pleasant experience. The room in this graceful old inn was very nice, and totally up to date. The on-site pub was cozy and the food delicious. The location is fantastic - just a short walk to the magnificent Rosslyn Chapel, and just about 10 miles to downtown...

My wife and I had our wedding reception in this hotel, 8 years ago. We have come back a few times since then, we have never been disappointed with the service or the quality of the food. Our most recent visit was 2 months ago, Graham the manager immediately recognised us, and made us feel very welcome

Top quality accommodation and food. All of the staff, especially the proprietor, were extremely helpful. The proprietor even gave me a lift to and from my final destination in his own car. Highly recommended.
