Just spent 2 nights being well looked after. Staff so helpful, room cosy and a breakfast fit for a king. Dined in the restaurant both nights, food was excellent. Wine and chocolates were a lovely surprise on our arrival. Will definitely go back. Thank you for a fabulous time.

I had the unfortunate experience of staying at this hotel recently, thankfully it was only for a single night. There is a comprehensive list of issues with this hotel which resulted in me wishing I had been anywhere else rather than here., including: entrance was dark and dated; threadbare and malodorous floor coverings; deserted reception desk on arrival; in general...

The Hotel was fantastic for our dog. There was no extra cost for her and she was allowed to stay alone in the room. I was advised where I could walk her. I thought the location was stunning although it was a shame our room didn't have a view. I found the staff to be friendly although one or two... More

Stayed here on Saturday night. We had room 6 with a great view over the Firth of Forth looking over towards the Forth Bridges and an old castle across the water. Room was spotless. We had a lovely 3 course a la carte meal and cooked breakfast. Drinks were reasonably priced. The highlight of our stay was the short walk... More

We stopped for lunch & asked first if our dog was welcome - no problem outside and we were shown a shaded table in the well-kept back garden. I asked for the '2 Courses for £9.95' menu but was told this n/a outside and was shown the (dearer) snack menu. A simple 'please' got us what we wanted. Chili prawn... More
