The hotel is ok, but the decor in room 361 was a bit tired worn patches in the carpet, chipped furniture etc. the room was also incredibly hot; we had to open a window to make it comfortable enough for sleep. The beds and pillows were super-hard. Breakfast was clearly not cooked to order as it appeared very quickly and... More

Have visited here on many,many occasions in the past and always found the staff and service impeccable,sadly we were very disappointed on the two occasions we visited recently.The rooms were spotlessly clean with plenty of towels, a hospitality tray and complimentary toiletries(albeit they are made in China! and not Scotland!).Sadly the fine dining experience was spoiled on both occasions we...

We stayed here for one night in the 21st of March for my birthday. It was just fantastic! The staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating. I had two treatments at the spa from the lovely Claire, who should be given some sort of award for her services! Room was lovely, the only downfall being the hard mattress on the bed!... More

The breakfast was ok, but the staff unorganized. in general we didn't really feel comfortable there. We had dinner at the bar and stuff from people before us was still on the tables and was still...

Amazing staff and food one of the best places I have ever stayed. We were dbb and had a really good breakfast and then at night a six course menu which varied each night. The food was cooked beautifully and the staff were brilliant chatty and always happy to help. Even in the morning the house keepers would greet you.... More

Location is perfect. Just a short walk from the town itself and next to the water. The bar, conservatory area and restaurant are all lovely and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and recommended. The room was pretty basic with only a partial view but okay apart from the bathroom which could do with an overhaul.... More
