Our family was treating friends to a meal for a special birthday. I booked a table of 5 in the Scotsman bar. When we arrived the waitress said she knew nothing about our booking and said "if you sit there"... Disappeared out the room. After 10 minutes or so we went upstairs to another bar, ordered a drink until the... More

The driveway up to the hotel is not good, a few holes in it. A few steps to get into the hotel and reach reception. Reception is well laid out and staff very helpful and quick to check you in. Rooms very well decorated and comfortable. Housekeeping staff very polite and will get you any extra towels etc if needed.... More

I was at Thainstone House for a wedding. All staff were absolutely lovely, went out of their way to help with anything that was needed. We had a lovely day at the wedding!

Arrived for afternoon tea to be told their had been a mix up with the booking. Bearing in mind we had 3 phone calls from the hotel, the latter was only on the morning of our booking. When shown to our room, the tables were all set out nicely. But the service and the food were disappointing. The presentation was... More

Thainstone was a beautiful setting (despite the horrible weather) and allowed dogs too which was perfect. We spent our day in the bar (with the dog too) which was very vintage and pretty. We ate in the restaurant/bar that night- food was delicious! Such an amazing dinner! They have a spa/pool etc so we used the hot tub during the... More

Generally, this hotel is fine. However, it has the most extraordinary pricing policies that I've never seen elsewhere: All transactions involving a card, credit or debit, have a £2 surcharge. This includes a small round of drinks at the bar, as well as on departure. The restaurant menu listed surcharges of around £3 on every item: the menu stated that... More
