I went to the Thistle 4 years ago for a Christmas party and the food was truly dreadful! So after being asked to organise an event at the hotel, i approached with reservations. Wow what a change! The new management team in 9 months have made some fantastic changes including refreshing bedrooms as well as hugely improving food standards. This... More

The title of this review says it all. This hotel is well located, just off the motorway and has average decor, average sized rooms, average pretty much everything and it would have got 3/5 for being averagely average. However the steak I ordered was truly dreadful. Every mouthful was gristly and inedible. I ate mayb a quarter of the entire... More

The hotel is well furnished and very comfortable. The room was spacious and well appointed. The distance from where I had to park to my room was not insignificant! When you have to make three trips to the car to bring things in you really notice. There are no bins in the car park, which for a dog-friendly hotel is... More

Dear RJK-traveller, Thank you for your review and I am pleased to hear you mostly enjoyed your stay. Our car park does have 180 spaces, which does mean that on the busier nights there can be a walk from the over-flow car park to the hotel - I am confident that our front office team would be happy to offer...

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and given previous experiences I know not to expect too much, it just happens to be conveniently placed. I think this hotel has the record for the number of times I've had to change rooms because of problems (and I'm really not that fussy!). The overflow car park is still... More
