Family meal and a great hotel

Started by sampling the food and we weren't disappointed. The tempura was gorgeous and the food was good quality. The kids mocktails were surprisingly well done. The rooms were great and reception helpful. The price was good. I would definitely go again.

Fabulous staff and comfortable surroundings. We don't go away often, so this was a highlight! Will be back if we're back in the area.

Ok food, nice looking place with a good atmosphere, but very expensive for what you get. Don't think we'll be back; other places do better food for the same price.

We dined here during our stay and both enjoyed the food very much, breakfast was also very good. Rooms very modern and had a good... More

They also had a lite bite or small plates course i.e. Panninis or chicken tempura or haggis and black pudding tempura. The... More

I've been a few times before with friends for lunch and the service has been good and food nice. However unfortunately tonight that wasn't the case my starter was over cooked the Stornaway black pudding was brick hard and my main course made no sense on the plate and was exceptionally dry as boiled rice with dry slaw and prawn...
