I booked the function room at the West Port Hotel to hold my 21st birthday party 2 weeks ago, and it was fantastic! The staff were helpful and happy, the bar prices were very reasonable and the decor in the function room since being refurbished is lovely. It is a nice, modern looking venue. A lot of the guests commented... More

My partner and I arrived at the West Port yesterday for a one night stay to find that we had been double booked! I understand that human errors can happen but this is surely a basic skill, to actually reserve the room correctly. Very disappointed and we were unsure of what to do. To be fair to the manager she... More

Linlithgow is an interesting small town with some fine old buildings, and Linlithgow Palace (Mary ‎Queen of Scots etc) which is well worth a visit. Countryside around is pretty, and there are many local attractions - the Falkirk Wheel, Stirling etc, and it is good for going to Edinburgh as there are frequent trains which take around 25 minutes. There... More

Before I start I should say that we didn't stay at the hotel as we are local but we did use the restaurant and it is this that I am reviewing. We have been going to this hotel for dinner for years but i'm afraid we won't be back anytime soon after our last experience there. It was my daughters... More

First a Potted History, using Culinary Terms: There are slices of this delightful county town,and Royal Burgh, that grate: and these are the ones that we (nowadays) describe as "Brutalist", the kind that emerged from the rubble of ancient and harmonious buildings, for reasons that have never been properly explained, and done by latter day Berserkers, from the architectural field!...
