I had booked a room here with friends for a Bowling competition . Unfortunately I could not stay the first night due to other commitments but I was expecting to pay for the 2 nights anyway. I didn't expect to be asked to pay for my room within the first half hour and they didn't take anything off for the... More

I would just like to respond to the comments that you've made which I feel are largely unfair and unjustified. We, like many thousands of hotels charge on arrival, this is our policy and the procedure my staff follow. If it isn't to your liking then I'm sorry, but I have no plans to change this. Breakfast is included in... More

The Belvedere is a fine little hotel. The staff were helpful and polite, the food was good and the room was very clean. It says it's a 2 star hotel, but i think with a slight bit of TLC it could quite easily be a 3 star. No problems here, happy customer.. :-)

Great food and plenty of it. Value for money. Great service, staff very attentive. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely go back. Had to park on street as there isn't much hotel parking but otherwise all fine.

We went for a meal with friends on new years day. The food was fantastic and very good value for money. The heating had just broken on that morning but the staff soon found heaters for the restaurant so we didn't have to eat in the cold. The service was superb. We would go there again.

The belvedere aura of benign neglect is part of its Scottish charm...it is filled with locals who love the bar and restaurant, and it's beer garden feels like a throwback to a bygone era. Mind you, it isn't fancy but if feels like someone's home, and the atmosphere of warmth permeates the rooms. It may be bare bones for folks... More

Booked early evening meal as there were three young chidren in the party…service was very poor I don't know if it was from the kitchen or staff problem. It took 3/4 of an hour for our first course. Food 75%

Unfortunately you came in on a day when we had two chefs off - this doesn't happen often nor does it excuse the poor service. I can only apologize and assure you that it's not our normal standard - have a look at our restaurant review page. I hope that you'll come in again and experience our regular standard of... More

One the good side: good choice of food and friendly staff. However room itself was really dark and tired looking but clean. En suite bathroom had mould on the celling, hole in th wall and more mould in the shower cubical. Shower unit could weak up undead. Really struggled to use free WiFi even in the bar.

Had two rooms 4 and 5, both shower cubicles had bad mildew between the tiles and around the base, very reluctant to use it. Reading the website I believed the hotel had recently been upgraded!! Actual rooms were okay basic but bed was clean, any staff we met were friendly but I wouldn't re book a room for the night.... More

The restaurant menu offers traditional Scottish "pub" choices, with additional specials on the daily board which offer a good selection of more "modern" options. What raises the Belvedere above its competitors is that the the food is tasty and beautifully cooked - light and crisp batter, tender but not overcooked vegetables etc. In other words the kitchen staff are very...

We have eaten a few times here and the food has always been excellent. Really friendly staff and very good value. Only one night ear Ier this year, were we slightly disappointed and it was nothing to do with the food. It was a really noisy lady in the restaurant at another table, part of a large party.

Hi, I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal with us. I can only apologize for any disruption caused by a noisy person nearby. There's a fine line between allowing people to enjoy themselves and preventing them from disrupting other peoples enjoyment. We'll be more aware of this in future and hopefully this won't be allowed to happen again, regards Sheila More
