Had enjoyable stay at this hotel last weekend on our journey to and from Edinburgh for the Tattoo. Room clean and tidy, bar area fine and food very good (try the steak suet pudding), if we were ever in the area again, we would be more that happy to book rooms again.

This physically unusual hotel is really a case of staff staff staff While the rooms are very good, the rates are excellent and the food punches way above its weight it's the consistent cheerfulness of the crew that makes this a return venue for me

When we arrived the first thing that struck us was that the gardens were overgrown and needed some work. However, forget about that because we couldn't fault the place at all. Our room was a good size and located at the rear of a very attractive court yard. Spotlessly clean. A notice in the room said that the rooms were... More

We were given the "Stewart Suite" (room 6) in the main building which was extremely spacious and featured an ensuite bathroom with large corner bath. Tony and the rest of the staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was good too. Only downside was our room overlooked a very busy road and the traffic noise woke me about... More
