They said: “We have since upgraded our alarm and CCTV system and reviewed our night porters procedures.

“We also have an additional member of the night porter team who can’t wait to see these two if they decide to come back (Odin the Rottweiler).

“Police Scotland have been fantastic and confident they will get these two, if anyone knows who they are please get in touch.

“As Ravelston House is a hotel, we have someone on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“It’s just unfortunate on this occasion our night porter was busy in another area of the hotel.”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Around 6.45am on Monday, 25 September, police were called to a report of a break-in earlier that day on North High Street, Musselburgh.

"Enquiries are ongoing."
