Stayed for few days. Original room had shower in the bedroom and tiny separate toilet and wash hand basin tucked away in small room! Moved into another room with shower in bathroom! Very bling room with mirrored silvered furniture! Super views. Fairly good food but very chaotic servce! Lovely friendly staff

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. Nice room and enjoyed sitting in the lovely new extended foyer area looking out over the bay. All staff were extremely friendly and efficient and, being local had very good local knowledge. We ate each evening in the busy and attractive restaurant and thoroughly our meals.

The chicken with skirlie stuffing was delicious, mixed... More

Modern dining room, busy but not too noisy or overcrowded. My main criticism is the quality of the food: too varied a menu to be able to offer everything fresh. Thus mains were of... More

The staff on reception and in the restaurant were all very pleasant and efficient. The meals we... More

The only problem we had was that all bedrooms are upstairs and there is no lift. As my husband has difficulty climbing stairs this was a problem to us. In all fairness the... More

Four of us visited for dinner. Nice hotel. Nice meal. All of us enjoyed the visit. One recommendation:avoid the scallop starter - three small scallops and three small pieces of black pudding at a cost of £9.50!!!

We were impressed as the restaurant was really busy being a Saturday night.Upon arrival the staff were very courteous and friendly and the waitress came to take our order promptly. The presentation and taste of the food is... More
