Great start at room 4... This room has fantastic private balcony overlooking Dunbar and the rocks probably the best view in Dunbar. Meal was first class service and value for money. The room was very clean and tidy. Free wi-fi service, traditional scottish breakfast with great choice of freshly prepared food . OVERALL NUMBER 1 # in Dunbar.

This privately run hotel with commanding views over the Forth has great ambience.Three of us, all family, had a lengthy lunch which was delicious.Jessica is a wee gem and a credit to the hotel for her service and attention.

I stayed at here for business this week and will be making a habit of doing this when in Dunbar. Staff are lovely, food gorgeous and room very comfortable. I've already booked for my next visit in May. Keep it up guys, let's hope my next visit is as good :).

Great location, great hotel and fantastic food, nothing was to much trouble for all of the staff. I realised I forgot my shirt so the manager drove me to a shop and back. You don't get this service at many hotels.

My friend and I went to The Rocks for dinner a couple of weeks ago on a terrible stormy, windy night, but on entering The Rocks we entered into a warm, friendly, cosy establishment. All the staff were attentive, friendly and pleasant and we were so impressed with the service from all members of the team. Our meal was super,...

Tip: If you are organising a celebration talk to staff beforehand. We were able to agree a menu which gave a range of choices rather than going for a pre-set meal. Parking can be tight so leave enough time to park before arriving. Do take time to walk along the coastal path. It is well worth it and is literally...

Alan and I arrived at The Rocks on the Friday evening, a little later than expected, to be met by James and Ben, who made us feel right at home and, despite the lateness of the hour, offered us food and refreshments. The Rocks is truly home from home ... the tranquil, warm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere is reflected in...

The Rocks hosted our friends' wedding on 25th February. Everything about the day was perfect and the amazing staff, especially James, the wonderful venue, delicious food and excellent accommodation was a huge part of it. Thank you to everyone at The Rocks - we can't recommend you highly enough.

We held our wedding, reception and evening party at the Rocks in Dunbar on 25th February 2017. From the outset the staff were just superb. A special mention to James who indulged our every whim and couldn't have been more helpful. We held the short ceremony in the beautiful front room and it was the perfect choice for us-cosy and...
