Stayed for 1 night (Saturday) - suited our purposes perfectly. Check in was simple and straightforward - our room (30) was on 2nd floor, with nice view over the station car park where there is free parking for hotel residents. Room was slightly tired looking, but couldn't fault it for comfort - pleasantly warm and nice big comfy bed. Bathroom... More

Just come back from a 3 night winter break at the Station - it was excellent. The staff on reception (and as a whole) were lovely, friendy, and professional. Our room (42) on the 3rd floor was lovely with a large triple window overlooking the train station and the hills beyond. Some may not think overlooking the train station is... More

Had a marvellous meal at this event last night. The food was good scottish fare, served hot . The haggis, jeeps and tatties were a delight, so often dry at other establishments, perfectly cooked and presented. Well done to Aileen, Cameron, James and all the staff for making last night exceptional.

I was welcomed at reception courteously and found reception staff very helpful throughout my stay. There was a lift available, which was very good as I was on the top floor, in an "attic room". The free Wifi was excellent, with good reception at all times. The room itself was rather poor...small and dark, with roof timbers so low that... More

I arrived at this hotel at 4:30pm. My room was cold but the heating did not come on. Thinking it was faulty I rang reception to be told that the heating does not come on until 5:00pm, something I have never ever experienced before. It took a very long time to come on and I could not do any work... More

Dear Speeds64 I was very sorry to read that you had had such a terrible stay with us. Between the heating controls deciding not to work and someone cementing the lift doors shut, last Monday felt more like Friday the 13th. I'm sorry that this coincided with your stay and that we did not manage to get things sorted satisfactorily.... More

We came to this hotel for a nights stay because the hotel we had booked had over booked us and moved us here. We were so pleased they did as our room was much better. The staff were very helpful and the hotel had a very relaxed feel. The Bistro meal was very good and the breakfast was excellent with... More

We spent a night here and it was quiet and comfortable in a lovely big room which was bvery well appointed. We also organized a family gathering - lunch for a dozen of us - which was really nicely set up in a fine room. The food was really nice, better than I had hoped! The service helpful and unobtrusive.... More

Hi Linzi Sorry I was not able to offer better service at that time. As you say, it was 09.45, just at that time when the breakfast staff are closing up the Bistro at the end of breakfast and I was checking people out and the phone was ringing, and, to be honest we normally just serve teas and coffees...
