Good overall 4 day stay at Barony Castle. Good room excellent food and good friendly service. We were a little concerned about previous reviews but these have either been overblown or correctly addressed by the management and staff. Location great for Edinburgh park and ride (30 mins), Roslin Chapel and other Borders attractions.

I stayed here overnight while on a business trip. The hotel is in beautiful grounds with stunning scenery. Unfortunately the rooms are a little tired and when I walked into my room, there was a pile of dirty towels in the corner that had obviously belonged to the previous occupants! This made me unsure as to how clean the rest of the room was. As it was late, I just went to bed but mentioned it to reception as I checked out. I then followed up with an email to the hotel to let them know of my experience for their housekeeping purposes but to date have received no response. This in my opinion is very poor customer service.
Dear Sue N, thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that your recent stay was below your expectations. Please accept my sincere apologies. After investigating your comments, we found out that the room in question relates to an a small incident within the Housekeeping department. One of the chambermaids was not feeling very well and had to go to hospital however it was never communicated that there was still a pile of towels to be taken from the room. Usually the dirty linen is placed outside the room for collection, however as the corridor outside the room is very narrow, the linen was moved to the room. I can assure that room itself was fully serviced. I hope this makes sense and once again I am sorry for the inconvenience. Kind regards, Vytautas Syvys General Manager & Owner
