    This was truly a wonderful cottage. Very spacious, well equipped and in a beautiful location. Local pub excellent and within easy reach of places of interest to visit and a short drive into Edinburgh. Great walks for our 2 dogs and superb enclosed patio area. Owner and staff on the Ratho Hall estate where Coach House is situated all very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.

    Well appointed cottage in a secluded spot. Ideally placed for Edinburgh. Roomy interiors. Large grounds around. Quiet.

    We had a nice stay at the Coach house and overall it was very good. It was warm and clean and there was milk and eggs on arrival (no wine as for other visitors, but never mind). There were a couple of things that we thought needed to be addressed: a shelf in each bathroom to put toiletries would have been useful. We also couldn't get the washer/dryer to dry; not an issue as we were only there for a few days but if it'd been a longer stay it might have caused some issues. The settees are a type of chesterfield and not overly comfortable; after less than an hour in them both of us had backaches. The second bedroom has a skylight but no blind for it (something that has been mentioned before) and this meant that our daughter wouldn't sleep in the room as she found it a bit creepy with the trees in view outside. As this is in the suggestions book from 2016 and as the owners had stated then that they were going to deal with it, it was a shame that they hadn't. That aside, it's a very nice property in a good location; the local pub is nice but the food is over priced. There are 2 small shops in the village but for most essentials you'll be better off at one of the bigger supermarkets that are only a few minutes drive away.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review and I am sorry that you had a few niggles during your stay. Our sofas are new and we have never had a single negative comment about them since we have had them - I am sorry that you found them uncomfortable. We have had all sorts of problems with the blind in our second bedroom. We have had one in place since 2016 but a previous customer pulled it down and as this has happened previously we want to find a better solution. One is being made as I write. There is a curtain on the other window in the room and the skylight is at the far end of the bedroom, and at this time of year it is dark when you go to bed and when you wake up. However I am sorry that it wasn't up when you were staying with us. I am afraid that I disagree with you that the pub is overpriced as it serves locally produced home made food. I hope that you have a happy 2019.

    The Cottage was clean and comfortable. It is in a very quiet location but within a short drive to the Park and Ride.

    This was our second visit to this cottage and once again it proved to be a winner. The nearby pub/restaurant served lovely food and the 10% discount was very acceptable.

    Just back from our stay in Edinburgh and we had a fantastic time. The coach house is lovely, transport into the city centre is easy through the number 20 bus and tram links, we were close to the highland show, only 10 minutes on the bus. The coach house is perfect, next time we will stay longer than 2 nights as we felt it just wasn’t long enough. The fresh milk, eggs, and wine was a lovely touch and greatly appreciated. Comfy beds and good showers and most importantly it is tranquil and peaceful such a short distance to Edinburgh. We will most definitely be back.

    Great week at the Coach House, our two dogs loved the woodland and local walks. The cottage was comfortable, spacious and well equipped and we felt we lacked for nothing. Half a dozen fresh eggs, milk and a bottle of wine on arrival were very welcome. We have already booked our next stay.
