This was our fourth stay at this friendly welcoming hotel. Every member of staff is so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are named after famous golf courses, and we stayed in the old course room which is nice and quiet facing the back of the hotel. The rooms have all been updated and the public areas...

Spent one night here recently, our room was in Hazel Cottage just behind the inn, we were comfortable and cosy. The food was excellent we ate in the restaurant on a steak night, this was an absolute bargain for such good food. Our steaks were perfect and the pudding was just lovely. We would certainly eat here again.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at the Golf Inn earlier this month. We were made most welcome and as I had earlier indicated that I had a mobility problem we were shown to a beautifully furnished double bedroom (with very comfortable beds) in Hazel Cottage which is situated just behind the main hotel.

Good hotel located in the heart of East Lothian golf country, with easy access to all the top venues. Nice rooms, friendly and helpful staff and excellent breakfast. Would recommend this hotel for a short break or a golfing trip.

Firstly, all the staff are friendly and approachable. Secondly, the en-suite room I had in the annexe was very comfortable indeed and the shower gets a particularly strong mention - unlike many hotel showers this one worked, was powerful, was at a consistent temperature and didn't leak water all over the floor! The king-sized bed was excellent and very comfortable.... More

Small friendly hotel in a beautiful part of East Lothian surrounded by wonderful golf courses. Room was basic but perfectly adequate for our one night stay. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food was five star. Nice cosy bar and spacious beer garden at the back perfect for outdoor eating and drinking. We will certainly go again.
