room was warm and definite changes in improvements since I last stayed. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bar had a good local warm atmosphere. I had bruschetta for starters and it was really good, very fresh and tasty. Had fish and chips - huge ! Loved it all happy tummy and slept the whole night. Will be back.

We turned up on 29 December without booking for a late lunch for ten of us and were fitted in with no problem. The waitress was excellent and helpful, the menu was extensive, food was all good. Dining room is newly decorated and very nice. Lovely ambience. All our kids received selection boxes on our way out! Very reasonably priced... More

Robert M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Burnett Arms Hotel, responded to this review

We are trying to investigate this review but it is difficult to do so as the stay was 10 months ago.
