Just back from a National Holiday coach weekend and had a lovely break. Our room on the ground/basement floor of the Wemyss Suite left a lot to be desired but was more than made up for by the location of the hotel, the superb food and the helpful, hardworking and very pleasant staff especially our waiter Javier.

An excellent break. Hotel has been upgraded since our last trip. Food was excellent, rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Staff were friendly and could not do enough for you, especially Restaurent manager David Menzies and our waiter Selwak (cant remember how to spell his surname). Entertainment was good, even though I cant stand ELVIS. Enjoyed Lisa and Andy. The... More

Visited with National Holidays on a four day trip. The hotel has changed since my last visit and I wouldn't say for the better. The service in the dining room was not good. First night totally disorganised, waited for what seemed an age to order after being seated. Apparently there was a mix up with the waiters, one thought the... More

Choice quite adequate too. Staff: - very pleasant and helpful; service in the restaurant and bar was excellent - far better than some 4/5 * hotels I have stayed in... More

I can confirm all the good reviews are correct, so will try not to repeat too much. Food was excellent, and we were served by Paul and his girlfriend and Kristoff, who were all so kind. I asked if they had Marmite one morning, and they put it out for me from then on! Our room was 311 at the... More
