Had a meal here for my mum's birthday in February. My starter was really nice so I was looking forward to my main course but it was disappointing as it was very greasy and made me feel really ill by the time I got home! The staff were friendly enough but they were also very slow at clearing our table,... More

Food - lovely, nice meats and great puddings. Service - slow. We waited at our table for 20 mins before anyone gave us a menu. Nobody seemed to be paying much attention to the dining room or have a clue how to run a Sunday carvery. Nobody asked how our meal was, whether we wanted to go for starter and... More

I know not all the staff are the same but the person on the bar tonight took the biscuit. I now they are understaffed in the place and am willing to wait for... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Gordon Arms so much that we decided to stay longer. There was a very pleasant and comforting ambience throughout the whole experience. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were very comfortable and well maintained and had all the facilities that anyone would need. The food was outstanding and this was... More

This hotel is much bigger on the inside than it appears from outside and from discussions with our travelling companions the rooms may vary in standard from one area to another. Our room was dated and seemed to be for a 1970s business man - large with wood panelling and plenty of desk space to work on. It also had... More

We stayed there for a "wedding workshops" with my future husband and with our dog. We chose that place because it was pet friendly. Inside is a bit dated, bathroom very noisy but as long as You're not fussy too much about inside You should be happy. Very friendly service, was able to advice about walks, and things to see...

Surprised to see so many negative reviews regarding the restaurant ,we stopped in for dinner on the way back from Aberdeen and I have no complaints, it is what it is, a small village hotel relying on mainly passing and tourist trade, if anything its slightly dated but perfectly acceptable. We both had soup to start and the Cullin skink... More
