The meal in the restaurant was excellent value for money and goodsized portions with A very friendly staff. Highly recommended But you might have to book as it very popular especially at weekends.It is very handy for the centre of the town.

Music from a large speaker in the ground floor bar boomed around my first floor room until 00.30, so no chance of sleeping until 1 a.m. Thin curtain not wide enough for the winow. I was warned that the breakfast was only 'continental' but at £45 for the night for one not good value.

The pictures used on a variety of hotel booking websites were a lot nicer than in real life! But my room was spacious and clean - however my friends was really small. It's a really central location, handy for the wedding we were attending. Disapointed at the breakfast in the morning - we were looking forward to a cooked breakfast... More

The breakfast was very poor apart from the cereal and fruit juice, cooked consisted of 3 plastics containers on a hot plate containing cold sausages, greasy bacon... More

This is a fairly small pub but very popular with the locals. A few hotel rooms on the first floor directly above the pub. We stayed for 2 nights on Fri and Sat recently. Positives: Free parking and a friendly initial welcome. Walking distance to Bathgate town centre and train station which allows you to reach both Edinburgh and Glasgow... More

My friend and I stayed here as we were going to a wedding reception locally. On arrival the staff were very welcoming and carried our bags upstairs for us. The door at the top of the stairs has a security code entry system presumably to keep bar customers out of the rooms. Once through here there was a reception desk... More
