The staff are incredible, nothing is too much trouble, they go the "extra mile" every time, they make you feel like you are one... More

Great wedding, very well organised, food delicious and service impeccable. My only negative comment would be the bedroom was very cramped, other than that couldn't fault it. Staff very friendly and attentive.

I booked a table for 15 in the Cairn's Bar & Grill to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday. The table was booked way in advance and some of the party who do not live in the area booked a room for the night too. It was important that we were all together to celebrate his birthday. I cannot express enough... More

This should never have happened hence the reason we gave you bottles of Prosecco as way of an apology. However I do understand this did not... More
