“Opulent charm and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We chose this hotel somewhat at random and expected a good and comfortable stay as appropriate to the reasonable pricing. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the hotel exceeded our expectations in every way.

The setting is idyllic in its own grounds just above the town but a mere 5 minute stroll from the centre. The building has character and has been furnished with an old world charm and comfort that was very appealing. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

Perhaps our greatest delight was in the food. We had booked for dinner each evening and were delighted to find that the menu changed daily with a good selection of dishes available. The menu was not overly adventurous but the standard was higher than expected with quality, presentation and a range of choices that would not shame a fine dining restaurant. We loved it.

After dinner, over coffee by the log fire in the lounge, we met other couples who were regulars at the hotel. So many being return customers (and very satisfied ones) speaks for itself in terms of the great and relaxing experience we enjoyed.

I think we will be joining the list of those for whom a visit is a regular event.

Room Tip: We had a supreme room that came with a four poster bed. Views over the grounds were excellent from f...

Stayed here last week. Hotel was great overall. Evening meal was really good, ingredients all seemed fresh, though hadn't planned for a two course minimum dinner. Staff were fantastic. Room was a single room well equipped. Enjoyed my stay, sure I'll be back.

We booked a very last minute two night break to this delightful hotel where we had stayed the previous year and loved it. We were not disappointed although this time our room was small and cramped but that was due to the late booking, so we didn't mind. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in front of a log fire with post dinner coffee and drinks in the beautiful lounge. The staff are wonderful, efficient and solicitous, and the views from the dining room are extremely pretty. We will definitely go back and plan to do that more frequently.

Room Tip: We paid extra on our first visit for a superior room and it was wonderful - large with views over th...

We stayed for a couple of nights in the annexe. A calm, luxurious oasis, just behind the main hotel. I believe there are some additional annexe rooms which will be ready by the end of this year. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Food was fantastic and one of the best breakfasts we have ever had in a hotel. Only one slight gripe, is that the restaurant was absolutely freezing cold. A result of the very cold temperatures outside and the old Victorian windows. However, helpful staff provided an additional heater next to our table on our second night which helped! All in all a lovely relaxing stay, attentive staff and comfortable surroundings. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Annexe rooms are a real treat. Modern, luxurious and with a boutique feel. Main hotel rooms more tr...

We only stayed one night - part of a birthday celebration but we loved everything about the hotel (which I first stayed in - on business - 25 years ago). It is out of town but close enough to walk in. In winter it exudes a cosy, warm feeling with colours and furnishings to match. There are plenty of small areas which offer a range of lounging options and ideal spots to relax with a newspaper and the drink of your choose.

Our room (25) was a superior double and was very comfortable with an intriguing opening through the main window on to a small outdoor terrace - just big enough for two. In warmer weather ideal to sit and admire the view. The bed was comfortable, the furnishings fine for this type of hotel room and the bathroom modern.

Food is very good indeed and while I sampled from the familiar game/meat associated with this type of hotel my wife was also delighted with the vegetarian options. There is a decent wine list covering a range of prices including the not-too-expensive. Breakfast was excellent - cooked to order and with sufficient options to allow variety over a longer stay. Staff were very pleasant, attentive and efficient.

Free wi-fi too!

PS this is a dog friendly hotel (though we are between dogs at the moment)

Room Tip: Try room 25 for the little terrace.

What can I add to all the glowing reviews which the Pine Trees has rightly received.
The hotel is a former country house which has been sympathetically adapted .From the moment you step in the door you sense that this not just going to be another hotel stay, but a gracious experience.
Having come for a romantic getaway weekend the initial positive impressions were enhanced by the warm friendly welcome received at reception.
The hotel is tastefully decorated in warm calming colours, has beautiful public rooms with lots of comfortable sofas and chairs, numerous little intimate nooks and crannies plus charming period artefacts which augment the country house ambience and experience.
The food is to die for, exquisite flavours and presentation , served by friendly attentive but not intrusive staff.
My choice of Scallops followed by Pheasant was a gastronomic delight.
Breakfast made a perfect start to the day, extensive choice and everything cooked to order, our choices of one a full Scottish Breakfast and one Smoked Haddock with a Poached Egg were so tasty and beautifully presented .
The attention to detail throughout everything the hotel sets out to achieve with regard to client satisfaction is testament to all the highly complimentary reviews the hotel receives .
I am delighted to reconfirm all the highly complimentary and positive reviews written by others.
We had a wonderful stay !

Just back from this years visit to the Pine Trees and it still does not disappoint. Food is still amazing, service is still top class and the thing which really emphasises this is the fact that most of the other guests we spoke to were repeat visitors like ourselves.
Food is stunning, lots of game and fish, breakfast is wonderful, lots of choice, I had smoked haddock with poached egg, fabulous. Wine and beer is very reasonably priced with a decent selection. The dining room and lounges are comfy with lots of intimate nooks and crannies.
The staff are always very pleasant and attentive without being too 'in your face'
This is about our 6th or 7th visit and will not be our last.
