Stayed here while attending a refresher course at nearby facility. Great all rounder food and service. Not to expensive for drinks and food. Comfy bed and good shower. Good selection for breakfast, local produce?

Stayed here for a couple of nights while working at the airport. I was impressed by pretty much every part of the hotel. Check-in was quick, and the room was easy to find. The room was very good - comfy bed, good pillows and extra cushions, bottles of water and toiletries supplied too. I counted eight plug sockets, which was... More

I love the soft bed and nice pillow. The room is spacious. Bathroom is clean. However there is limited toiletries for a good hotel like this. We will certainly come back to stay although it's a bit far off from town. The service provided is also good

Having stayed here many times before, when an offer appeared on itison, I thought i'd buy it. Sometimes with these offers you are made to feel a little inadeqate and not as welcome as other guests. Not so here, check in was most welcoming, the executive room was spotless and had everything we required, We used the pool etc ,... More

On a driving tour of Scotland this was the best hotel we stayed in - value for money as booked by booking.com, the room was spacious even with two double beds. Lovely and clean throughout, complimentary use of the pool and the food was excellent.
