We were fortunate enough to spend 10 nights for the Ryder Cup at this exceptional establishment. The extremely pleasant staff, the friendly atmosphere, the fine dining, the general ambience and attention to detail made us feel delightfully welcome. We will be looking forward to an excuse to come back and sample the wonderful Scottish hospitality this home away from home... More

Absolutely superb venue in all respects. Would highly recommend. Our room was excellent and food first class. Wedding arrangements were very well organised and ran smoothly. I was able to spend some time in Edinburgh which is 30 mins by train to Waverley station in city centre. An excellent place to stay if you are touring Fife and Lothians.

We stayed at room number 25. Had a really great stay. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfest was very good, with classic music accompanying. we also liked Hector, the furry puppy that replaced the "do not disturb" sign. Great visit, would like to come again.

In my new role, I am delighted to be able to come back and it if anything has got even better.

We travelled up from Manchester for my aunts 90th birthday party and decide to stay for two nights. So glad we did, the room, the food but most of all, the service were excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I hosted a small private dinner party for my wife, daughter and seven lovely guests on 7th November 2014. We were allocated a very comfortable room in which to dine, and which was made available to us all day for decorative purposes. All requests, either in advance or on the day were attended to without any fuss. The dinner and... More
