I stayed here on a Friday night after the hottest day of the year- arrived to a beautiful room with windows open and a fab, all nice and cool. I then needed to check out before breakfast on a Saturday to catch a train, staff went out of their way to ensure I could grab some breakfast and where super... More

I've traveled to the area four times for business reasons this year, staying at the Bannatyne on three of those occasions. On my first stay, I was in a "four-poster" room, which was the only type available when I booked on short notice. That room was perfect in every way. It faced the street, and while traffic noise might bother... More

My husband and I held our wedding here on 20.6.2014 and we cannot speak highly enough of the staff. I stayed over the night before the wedding and unfortunately we had some very noisy neighbours, we complained and the young man on reception did everything he could to resolve the situation. Sadly he could get no response from the inconsiderate... More

This hotel is an absolute joke! Staff have no clue what they are doing. Walking around like headless chickens most of the time. Not even 1 star should be awarded to this hotel let alone 3. None of our orders or bookings were correct in the slightest. Nothing was done about them...we had to wait around and see whether they... More

My husband treat me to a meal at Maxine's restaurant. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was so relaxing. Our night was made even better from the service of our waitress Sian. What a wonderful, polite young lady. A true asset to the Bannatyne team.

Our second stay in this very comfortable hotel. Friendly reception, clean, spacious and tastefully decorated room. A good night sleep and tasty breakfast, thankyou to all the team. Plenty of free paking and just a short walk into the town centre.

Tea and biscuits waiting for you in your room, boil your own kettle though! Comfy bed, no disturbances in the evening. Lovely breakfast following morning.

Stayed for just one night with a friend. We booked the Heavenly Bliss package which is excellent value. The hotel is lovely and our room overlooked the garden. Small room but really well presented. The staff were excellent - really friendly and helpful. The spa facilities are a short drive away which didn't bother us at all. It's a purpose... More
