4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Functional appearance, but the friendly staff and access to the leisure club (indoor pool, sauna, gym and tennis courts) are plus points. Location-wise, OK if passing through, but a very long way out from the historic town centre.

A lovely place to stay with first class attentive staff. The Bar Manager Dharma is probably the friendliest and knowledgeable bar host I've ever met. The wifi is superfast and they gave skysports in the bar. The fact that there is a gym and pool is an added bonus.

Checked in by a trainee who clearly had no clue and was very untidy. Made to wait 20minutes. Overall the hotel looks very tired and worn. Restaurant was very overpriced and the quality was poor along with the service. Waited 15 mins for waitress to bring me a glass of water and ended up having to look and get it... More

It was totally standard hotel with no wows or dislikes. Therefore, I am so neutral to Thistle hotel. The staff were really helpful. Any wishes came true, the buffets for breakfast and dinner were rich and delicious. It is a good hotel to run business meetings.

A Hotel which does exactly as you would expect from a decent quality chain hotel, with room and breakfast to an acceptable standard but of course without any particular charm. Staff were naturally friendly, though, and the sauna and pool complex was good. Good pubs locally mean you do not need the restaurant in the evenings.

We stayed here with a coach party and were very pleased with our accommodation and service from the moment we arrived to when we left at the end of our five day stay. The checking in process was very efficient and our bags were soon taken to our rooms for us. The twin room was very comfortable - nice to... More
