I've given it two stars on the basis of the lounge bar, and perhaps the breakfast. To be fair the staff are very helpful. (Except the young waiter last night who runs round a lot and forgets everything. Like bringing me a sweet menu. £12 for just a pie then!) I was bumped here from the Mercure (another to avoid),...

Not quite sure how it got the rating it has. Old, needs a facelift, room tiny and cramped, food awful. Receptionist gave me attitude when I checked as I did not eat my dinner. Not much more I can say except I won't be going back. Oh yes room overlooked dual carriageway so very noisy......

Stayed here for a wedding. Ate with a large group on Friday night. Food was great value at £12 for three courses and no one in our group complained about the food. Yes the rooms are small but they are clean and functional. We only used ours to sleep in as we partied downstairs - so it was more than... More

Visited recently with a group of friends. The menu at £12 for 3 courses offered good choice and great value. The group ordered a variety of starters and mains and everyone enjoyed what they had. Wine was reasonably priced too. Service was friendly and professional. No complaints. Will definitely visit again.

I stayed here for 3 nights, working in Livingstone. First time here, usually stay in premier inn closer to the job. First impressions were quiet understand hotel and decor, pleasantly surprised by the comfort of room and the excellent food. Fresh tasty well presented dishes, good enough to grace any restaurant, the unbelievable bit is that £12.00 got you 3... More

Went here for the first time last Friday, there was 12 of us for a family celebration. Cannot fault the service and a 3 course meal for £12 was exceptional value and was decent food too, not one complaint out of the 12 of us.

Since moving to Bathgate 2 and a half years ago we regularly take advantage of the 3 courses for £12 offer and are never disappointed with the food or service. Our late lunch on Tuesday was no different. There's a wide variety of dishes on the menu (steaks are a bit extra) as well as constantly changing specials eg soup,... More
