Ate here with family in November 2014 for an evening meal. I did not stay in the hotel so can't comment on the rooms. Was very pleased with the choices I made, and those who ate with me were equally delighted. The haggis was excellent, the service good and the dessert ( a trio of desserts) wonderful. The only thing... More

Went for a meal with my wife and granddaughter. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. The price was very reasonable.We have visited this establishment on a number of occasions and found the standard to be maintained on each visit.

We stayed here as part of a large extended family group for a wedding nearby. If I could, I'd give six stars for service - I have rarely met staff who are so helpful, and friendly with it. The food was excellent - we ate in one night and the kitchen and waiting staff coped admirably with a party of... More

We stayed at the Chestnuts for a wedding over multiple days. I have to admit, based on past experiences, I was not overly excited about a multi-day stay. However, I was HAPPILY SURPRISED! The Chestnuts have really come along leaps and bounds over the past couple years. Our room was beautiful. The bed, although way too soft for my taste,... More

We have just spent what will go down as one of the best nights we have ever spent at a hotel. Fromm booking to check out, nothing was a problem. The bar and restaurant were first class, and even our youngest don who is very fussy was able to enjoy his food. All in we couldn't fault the hotel. Well... More

We had a two night stay in this hotel. Everything was fine but what made it special was the attitude of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We ate later than planned, added two to our party at short notice, asked for taxis etc. Every request was greeted with a smile and Hey Presto! every wish was granted. Add... More
