Went for romantic night on our honeymoon as we went round Scotland. Room tiny, unclean, with cramped bathroom and freezing cold. Given unsafe heaters. Had to go to garden centre nearby to get warm. Turns out they turn off the heating in the entire hotel twice a day to save money! Dining room dirty and cold. Condiments recepticals had dried... More

Black doors, black windowframes, black furniture, dark brown high bedframe, dark brown carpet, all very depressing along with draughty windows. After an hour in the room i was testing my own eyesight ability trying to watch the miserable little (yes you guessed) black tv on wall. After escaping slitting my wrists in room I found their lovely inviting restaurant with... More

First time we have stayed at the popinjay since it has been renovated. Lovely rooms, staff very helpful. Food excellent and well priced. Large swimming pool, you can actually swim in it. Sauna and jacuzzi, no steam room but still pleased with facilities, Will definitely be returning.

Hotel is currently having various areas refurbished with notices throughout apologising for this. It appears there are many areas still requiring an upgrade & work will be extensive. We were there for a company xmas party night as a group & generally all agreed the rooms were rather tired. Our tap would not go on, others said sockets were not... More

My wife, 2 small kids (both under 2 years old) and myself spent 2 consecutive nights at the popinjay on holiday. The location was great 30mins to Glasgow and 30 mins to Edinburgh. The rooms were very big and affordable. We had our smallest child sleep with us and our son in his pack in play around a corner in... More

I stayed in room 1 which had frayed carpets covered in massive dirty stains. The windows did not open and the walls/skirting were covered in dirty marks. There was black mould mould growing around the bath and the water pressure from the sink and the shower was non-existent. I did not attempt to make a hot drink as filling the... More

I got an absolute bargain for this place over Easter and had anticipated I would get an old room on arrival even though I'd paid a little more for the superior. When we booked in we did get a room like something out of 1986 however I did raise it with reception who moved us to the only upgraded room... More
