Stayed a few times now and never had a problem . Staff are very friendly and really make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and tidy plus lovely and warm on a cold night .theres also a restaurant next door so not far to go for a meal.will be back again as usual.

Rudest welcome I have ever had, only the room itself could match the misery of the sneering 'manager' on reception (who, incidentally, was kitted out in flip flops and shorts...classy). The inside of the building smells of damp, and the rooms look like something out of the '80s. Thank god I was away at work right up until it was... More

I apologise if you had ‘rudest welcome’, rest assured we’ll look into this. All hotels of our size do not have a dedicated receptionist as this it is very costly. There is a sign for a bell on the reception desk to contact a member of staff when the staffs are not in attendance. There is also a phone number... More

I have spent one week staying in Meldrum arms hotels and I wish to stay in again. Staffs were very friendly. Good size room with quality furniture and bedding. Room cleaning was really good, fresh towel and toiletries were provided regularly. Continental Breakfast was very ideal for me, can’t find any fault!

This has got to be the worse place I have stayed. Asked to pay before given room. The room which I was informed was up the stair after I asked for directions. The room was small, ensuite was mould ridden the bed side lamp had a tiny red bulb and was no more than a night light. I expect more... More

I am sorry to hear your stay with us was not pleasant. The continental breakfast is an extra which we do not charge for and as for the mould, rest assured we will look into this. Thanks for staying with us, we appreciate your feedback. More

Upon arrival a month ago, I was asked to pay my bill for 3 nights in full on my Visacard! I said "sorry, but I havent even seen the room yet, and it's normal practice when staying in a Hotel to pay before you leave!" He then took me up to the room of which was pretty standard, and nothing... More

The whole place was smelly, there were no curtains in my room , just an ill fitting blind. The shower enclosure was both rusty and mouldy. The bedside light didn't work. I was offered breakfast but decided not to make my chances based on the cleanliness elsewhere in the building. I wouldn't even given this place a 1!

From the very poor reception to the inadequate room and help yourself breakfast this hotel was inadequate in every respect. It would have been overpriced at a quarter of the cost for a room, regardless of "oil week". The radiator could not be switched off, the window could only be opened standing on the flimsy desk chair! All the surfaces... More
