    Beautiful view, very good food, easy access to train station; very nice staff.

    Elevator was broken for the entire three days I was there. Accessing 4th floor room was challenging. Hotel should have offered some financial compensation for the inconvenience.

    made to feel comfortable and great food will visit again

    Small room but very good bathroom facilities. Clean. Friendly staff.

    Very noisy room and probably due to the hot water tubes overheated even without any heater on. To open permanently the window was not really advisable (location, too heavy to move). The bar was rather for elderly people. There was no bar food available.

    Very clean, great shower. Restaurant for dinner was superb and the food amazing. Staff were very welcoming.

    Breakfast was undercooked and watery.

    Dinner was 1st class.

    Why, as always with a buffet type breakfast do they not fry eggs as required!!

    The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great. The room was nicely decorated and big enough. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    I think it is too expensive for what it is. there was nothing wrong, but it is not worth that much money!

    Buffet breakfast and service during was excellent,

    Creaking floorboards in room next to mine meant disturbance throughout evening and night.

    The location could not have been improved. A lovely place with great food and clean and comfortable rooms. It was the best value on my whole tour of Britain. I would love to return for a longer stay.

    I had no complaints except that they had no laundry facilities. Trekking across Scotland one needs a little help.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Friendly staff willing to help

    Fire alarm going off at 6am no one to explain what was happening older people needing help no one to assist them left to other guests.

  • Single

    Comfortable room. I needed help to figure out tv set-up, but it turned out a connection had come out at the back of the tv - one of the receptionists came up and sorted it out very quickly.

    A double plug next to kettle would be helpful. Suggest ham and cheese be presented on separate plates at breakfast to help vegetarians and those with religious dietary requirements - I mentioned this at check-out and I'm sure the hotel will action it.

  • Family with children

    We only chose this hotel for location and to meet our needs as a couple traveling with our young son. We were given a triple room, overlooking the rear carpark which was the most dingy room I've ever seen. This was coommunicated to staff and luckily for us, there had been a cancellation so we were reallocated to a superior room. This room was more appropriate to the price and was better appointed and fine for our needs. However, at 8am as we were getting ready, the housekeeper knocked on the door, saying something unintelligible and before we had time to answer, used a master key and opened the door. She obviously saw the room was inhabited and retreated immediately but this was another negative to staying at this hotel. Breakfast was excellent - overall the hotel is tired as not all rooms have been refurbished.

    Nearest hotel to rail station, incredibly helpful in storing luggage for remainder of day after we had checked out. Happy to make us fresh sandwiches to take on train for afternoon pick up.

    No fridge in room.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Proximity to station. Most staff very pleasant.

    Caters mainly for bus trips. A la carte restaurant poor. Re furbished rooms still need a lot done to bring them up to a good standard.
