When we were shown to our room I almost turned round and left, but having been asked for payment when we registered it was going to be a problem. The room was over the front door of the hotel. Always a problem on a Saturday night. It was the shower that was nearly the thing which pushed us over the... More

We couldn't get into our preferred hotel in this area and had no choice but to book this hotel, in spite of other negative reviews, but we were not quite prepared for the total lack of basic amenities. We arrived with our wedding guest outfits in suit carriers, on hangers, but there was no wardrobe, no rail, no coat hooks,... More

A friend of ours, who is from Gala, was getting married. My husband and I along with another couple and their 2 kids stayed here for 2 nights. A well run family hotel which has a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble, even though they had been working long, hard hours. Breakfast was included, which was cooked perfectly,... More

Went for dinner. Staff very accommodating and helpful. I was with a person who ate small portions. They had Scampi and kindly only charged for a child's portion, it really wasn't but also not too large a portion. I had chicken & chorizo wrap. Was lovely. Fab wee pub tea. X
