We only had one night booked Saturday 23-8-14 due to hotel being full. Really good location in the town and fantastic walks in most directions to amenities and places of interest. The town has its own steam railway and trips for children on Sundays on Thomas the Tank Steam Train. The locals were genuinely nice people in both local knowledge... More

The second time in 8 days the Northern Hotel restaurant provided an enjoyable dining experience. Arriving at 6.45 on a friday evening the room was quite busy but we were seated quickly seated unfortunately it was some time before we had our order taken and disappointingly there was only one of a particular starter left. However both starters and main... More

Stayed here in a double room with my husband for 3 nights. Whilst medium in size and en suite, our room backed onto a brick wall so if it's a view you want (in the Scottish countryside...), request one. Though lacking in any traditional charm, it is very clean with with all the necessary amenities: TV, hair dryer, iron. The... More

A lot of our guests are pleased with the refurbished decor but we are sorry if you felt it lacked charm. We do normally have a brolly at reception, I will ensure it is available. The breakfast is...

Nice location. Staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived late but were still able to get dinner at the restaurant. Food was very good. The room was very comfortable and handicapped friendly. Parking was limited and somewhat hard to find, especially if you arrive later in the day. Wifi was available but very slow.

I had the pleasure of eating here with my daughter today and was overwhelmingly impressed by the foods quality, portion size & the reception from the staff. We had chilli n cheese flatbread & coronation chicken baked potato. Both came with the most fresh and delicious salads n dressing, crunchy flavourful coleslaw. Both in light moreish dressings. The food was... More

We went to the Northern as part of graduation celebration. The main guest was running late, this was explained to the staff however we were still asked to consider moving to a smaller table!!!! This was completely ridiculous as the restaurant was very quiet. Five of the guest ordered meals that came with chips. When they came to the table... More

Stayed here with 3 friends whilst on a golfing trip in the area. The staff I dealt with were friendly and courteous. Rooms were clean and comfortable and modern. Although the shower was cold in the morning we found out during checkout that the hot water system had broken down that morning so not the hotels fault. Evening meal in... More

I couldn't give this place two stars, it wasn't that bad, but to say it was "average" might be a little generous, especially for the price. Service was adequate though they were seating patrons for staff convenience, not for patron experience. We were all stuffed into the same corner with some unruly children - poor discipline isn't the restaurant's fault,... More

The staff were very friendly but there were in no way enough of them for our wedding party. The hotel rooms were very clean and tidy but the beds were not comfortable and the rooms were also far too hot with no way of controlling the temperature but opening the window onto a noisy street. The wedding itself was is... More
