is Edinburgh a possibility? or is it too far?

BeaWheesht Mon 17-Jun-13 23:07:29

here maybe? 8 miles ish

Have you tried The Golf Inn or the grey walls hotel

BeaWheesht Mon 17-Jun-13 23:14:56

North Berwick, Haddington, longniddry, prestonpans and Musselburgh areas all probably worth a look. Don't know re taxi costs tjough

grey walls is booked.

am kicking myself that I bought golf-loving DP a golfy pressie for christmas, then totally forgot that we should book somewhere to actually sleep...

will get googling the others thank you!

Everywhere I looked wanted a huge amount of money for the entire week of the Open. Cottages that would normally be £500 for the week are £5000 and even at that price mostly booked. Good luck. We are camping in Dunbar!

There is a train service from Edinburgh with a shuttle bus to the golf, so that opens up all the hotels in Edinburgh- the train is less than an hour . At this stage it is probably your best bet.

Brilliant thank you 3nations! I've actually booked a nice Edinburgh hotel and we were just going to figure out how to get there. So that news is a big relief for me!

I'd stay VERY close to the train station in Edinburgh if I were you - somewhere like the Jury's Inn on Jeffrey Street is in sight of waverley station so that you just hop right onto the train at waverley.
