When we first looked at The Bank's website, we thought that it would be either 1) too expensive for us or 2) too good to be true. Neither applied! We stayed for a 3-night long-awaited weekend break with some good friends and things just could not have been better from start to finish; apart from the inevitable speed at which the time passed.
We followed Donna's directions and found the Private Car Park with ease where we were greeted by our very friendly and amiable Hostess who made fresh coffee and made us feel right at home. Donna told us the history of the building and, more importantly, all the very best local spots to visit for the activities we had planned (mainly eating and drinking!), and there was no shortage of either both on and off the premises! (You MUST try the burgers at The Tower cafe/bar 2 doors down! Immense and real chips too! - You'll never eat another BigMac again!)
The old RBS building has been lovingly restored and it is immediately obvious that Donna & Billy have excellent taste and have not cut corners in blending the old architecture with modern decor and high quality furnishings. The over all impression in reality is exactly as it appears on the website, which is very rare in our experience.
We have stayed in many similar establishments in the North of England and Scotland and we can safely say that this has been the best so far!
If you're looking for luxury, freedom and a warm welcome (not to mention a fantastic breakfast!) you really can bank on The Bank! We invested and Donna certainly paid the dividends! ~ If you read this review Donna, we want royalties if this slogan appears in your advertising! Ha, ha! :o)
Thanks Donna! Highly recommended! We will be back!
