We stayed here as it was close to one of the venues for Bloody Scotland. The room was absolutely huge with a massive bed and ensuite, sofa ,chairs and tv. The bar was kept open for us later at night and the bar staff were great. Breakfast the next morning was fab and over all our stay was great.

The car park is difficult to find, look for Specsavers then next to it the Cancer Research shop and you will see a small archway with a sign for The Golden Lion Car Park. Once this is found though, I cannot fault the hotel in anyway. Reception is very welcoming as are the staff. The room we had (351) was... More

After reading previous reviews I was a little concerned but was pleasantly surprised. Yes it is an old building but also a beautiful one. The reception area is lovely and the staff friendly and welcoming. I booked a twin room and breakfast. The room was spacious enough for two, beds comfortable and the bathroom clean. Tea and coffee was supplied... More
