2 friends and I had afternoon tea with strawberries and cream at the Waterside today. Everything was really lovely. The food, from the sandwiches through to the home baked cakes and biscuits was fresh, varied and very tasty. The strawberries and cream were delicious, especially when enjoyed along with our scones and pancakes. Service was very good, with the waitress... More

Four of us were travelling up East Coast of Scotland and booked this hotel as one of our one night stop-overs. Kirsty, the girl in reception, was absolutely great, but because there was no lifts, and the hotel was quite full, we had to take two rooms near the kitchen. They were not the best of rooms, because of the... More

We work all over Scotland and stay in a varied range of hotels always looking for the same quality and standard of accommodation that one would expect at home, this place however would be the home of a down and out. The first impression at reception is the grey gaffer tape on the carpet to hold it together , but... More

This must be one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were very helpful but that was the only redeeming feature. I booked and executive double with all the frills. The room was no more than a normal double with a two seater sofa. When I complained about it I was informed the internet discription was... More

Receptionist was nice and told us we could go to dinner at 7.15 as there was a coach party in. However, was told 7.30 then 8 pm on the evening. Took... More

We were not going to stay here again, but we did because of the short time that we had to orginise this trip to visit family. This time we also had our grand daughter, as last time we found the hotel very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our biggest problem last time was the breakfast and... More

My wife and I visited this hotel on a David Urquhart tour. We thought hotel needed modernising in all areas. Although room was clean, carpet was stained and wallpaper stained also.Food was edible but not outstanding. No fish on menu for first two evenings, only red meat based dishes, third night two fish courses and one poultry. Strange combinations and... More
