‘A welcome summer break. Excellent hotel and staff as usual. We were upgraded to a sea view room with magnificent views over the golf course and the nearby islands of the Forth. The Gin Garden bar was open and I enjoyed a locally distilled North Berwick G&T. Dinner and breakfast were served at a table with a sea view which was the icing on the cake for us. We used the spa which also overlooks the garden.’
‘Fabulous luxury. Wonderful period hotel where customer service is of impeccable standard. Bedroom huge light and airy with sea view, food very high standard and Gin Garden bar was fantastic. Nothing too much trouble – we’ll be back.’
