The closeness to the wedding venue, that the owner is warm and kind. She waited for the arrival of guests leaving the wedding at 11pm or so - as long a syou call in advance and let her know.
Dislikes:
The toilet takes an awful amount of time to refill its tank.

"Stay in Edimbourgh"
I and my family staied for 3 days. Our room was relly spacious and the breckfast was also cooked. The beds were also comfortable. Just the bathroom which had no window inside, had a very strong humidity smell, therefore we left the window of the room open as much as possible. The madame was anyway very kind. The value price/ quality is very interesting and even if it is approx 20/25 minutes by car from Edimbourgh, there is free parking place 10 min by car where you can take the bus for Edimbourg Read less
Likes:
Spacious room, kindness of the madame.

A warm welcome is extended in this attractive and comfortable family home - a "listed building" and former 18th century Coaching Inn. Located by the picturesque village of Fala, in rural Midlothian on the A68 main route south to Newcastle, it offers an ideal base for exploring Edinburgh and the beautiful Scottish Borders. Own transport advisable as public transport is limited.

We have six spacious bedrooms, of which 2 are en-suite, guest TV lounge with real fire and separate dining room. There is ample free private parking and children are welcome. Open all year. Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast only basis but there are several restaurants within a few minutes drive away.

Edinburgh City Centre is 15 miles and there is a convenient Park and Ride situated at Sheriffhall on the A7 North on the outskirts of the city where car parking is free and the bus service into the city is frequent. There are, of course, many car parks within the city for those who wish to take their car although parking can be costly for long periods of time. Edinburgh has many attractions including the Castle, The Royal Yacht Britannia, Museums, Art Galleries as well as theatres and sports venues. The list is endless.

Fairshiels is ideally situated to explore East Lothian and the East Coast fishing villages and market towns. The Scottish Borders are also very accessible for day outings to visit the many Country Houses and unique towns and villages. A little closer to home, Midlothian has beautiful countryside to experience including the popular tourist attractions of Rosslyn Chapel where the Da Vinci Code was filmed, The Scottish Mining Museum and Castles and Country Parks to explore and enjoy. All these areas have many interesting things to do that are too numerous to list and finding them for yourself can be a big part of the fun.

Fairshiels has been a family run business for over 40 years and our aim is to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing.
