A group of us have just returned a week ago and we had a lot of trouble! Bills always wrong, evening meal time service was terrible, paid for a garden view room and scaffolding up and dirty windows! Zero apology! Was almost impossible to split a bill! Really upset and disappointed I felt like it was really hard work. Would... More

English Hospitality at its best with some of Scotland thrown in for good measure. Surrounded by a lovely garden this hotel gives excellent service with attentive staff. The rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean and quiet. Make a point to dine in the restaurant. Silver service and the food is excellent. My compliments to the chef. Recommend the walk to... More

We have just returned from 2 nights at this five star hotel which my husband booked for my birthday. A few days before our arrival the hotel e mailed to advise of scaffold work, as a result we were upgraded to a fabulous classic four poster room with views over the gardens. The staff are excellent, very courteous and friendly.... More

I came to this hotel for a work trip, and was quite excited about staying in a '5' star spa hotel. After arriving in my bedroom, I went to the bathroom and found that the toilet had not even been flushed - and there was something very unpleasant in there instead. I rang reception and they sent someone up to... More

Fabulous weekend at this beautiful hotel to celebrate my daughter's upcoming wedding. Reception staff and porters were all most helpful and welcoming. The massage I had was great and the spa facilities are excellent. Lovely comfortable bed-rooms, sparkling bathrooms, comfy robes and slippers.

I stayed here on Saturday 5th July 2014 and I have to say I wasn't impressed at all. Firstly well over priced by about £100.00 plus and they charge you £5.00 for parking in there own car park. The air conditioning was really noisy forcing me to turn it off during the night which in turn made the bedroom extremely... More

Fantastic weekend at the macdonald bath spa hotel. It was our first time there and it was more special than we had hoped. Very welcoming when we arrived, reception was very helpful and the porter, Chris was very nice. Excellent facilities, we both used the spa area on the Saturday and Sunday. My partner had a facial and a massage,... More

Spent an evening in a garden room at this fabulously traditional hotel. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating, able to give lots of knowledge of the town, where to eat etc. The room was a fantastic size on the same level as the garden, it was light and airy with a fantastic sized bath!!! Breakfast was amazing, lots of... More

Was informed about scaffolding on the hotel a couple of days before arrival. What a shame. This is a great looking hotel in lovely grounds hindered on our weekend by the unsightly scaffolding. Inside the hotel, we found all staff very helpful in a professional way. A little more person rather than profession would make the added value difference, but... More

The room was lovely but the food was ok. Breakfast wasn't great, we had it included in our stay but £19.50 per person, if you didn't have it included us a little steep. Also, there isn't much atmosphere in the dining area. The spa was good, definite highlight of the stay. There are various rooms where you can get salt... More
