“Great venue but limited control of noisy neighbours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Good food although service a bit rushed. Garden rooms have excellent views but if it is a 'linked' room as 16 was to 17 then noise can be a problem. Will be more alert to that type of issue when we use the hotel again

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review, rooms with interconnecting doors do actually have two doors which back onto one another which should prevent noise intrusion, but we would advise that on your next visit you request a room without interconnecting doors which should alleviate any possible disturbances. Thank you again for taking the time to write your review and we hope to welcome you again in the future.

Had booked hotel using voucher deal for myself and husband but due to illness in family had to phone and explain we needed to bring grandson. Owner was fantastic moved us to room to accommodate travel cot and the staff were all so welcoming and friendly. The meals were great and hotel has an excellent menu. The grounds were great for 2yr old grandson to run around and play in plus the field outside our garden room with the cattle was his favourite place to walk to in the morning. This hotel is definitely worth a visit and lots to see and do in the area. As it's only short drive from both south/north bound motorways worth the stop for dinner to break the journey. We will definitely be returning ...

We have stopped here twice and have found the staff, accommodation and food to be of a good standard. Our booking was made on line with no problems and the Superior room on the ground floor was of a good size and the ensuite bath had an excellent shower. We dined in house and enjoyed a very nice meal, the Caesar salad which included chicken, bacon, anchovies, parmesan cheese and dressings, was, according to my wife, one the best she has eaten. My dish of chicken stuffed with haggis was also great - well done chef ! Just to mention the young ladies serving us - well done girls. All in all a good one night stop rounded off with a good breakfast. If we are travelling that way again we would not hesitate to stop here. Keep up the standard - almost forgot to mention the outstanding view from both our room and the bar/dining area.

Room Tip: Superior rooms on ground floor have great view but we were reluctant to leave patio doors open for v...

Fatastic hotel in lovely surroundings. We upgraded to a garden view room which was well worth it,with our own patio with table & chairs and a fabulous view. The weather was glorious for April and we were able to take advantage of this.
Everything about the hotel was perfect,especially the staff who pulled out all the stops to make us feel welcome. Food was really good,well presented and not expensive .Lovely comfy seats in the bar area. Would come back whenever we are in the area.Many,many thanks to your staff, you must be very proud of them.

Room Tip: A garden room is well worth the upgrade

My partner and I stayed here for a night with our jack Russell on our way down south, the staff were very helpful and polite.
The room itself was not the most modern room I've stayed in but it was very clean and ideal for having a dog! The room (19) had a patio door that lead out to beautiful views of countryside and it's own patio table and chairs.
The full Scottish breakfast in the morning was perfect.. Just what we needed to see us through the rest of our journey. I would recommend this hotel and we will be coming back again.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review, the garden rooms do indeed have direct access to the gardens which is great when you have dogs needing to go for a walkie. Thank you again for your review and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us.

First of all I must comment on the staff that we encountered during our stay. 5 stars for service must go to Lyn who was duty manager during our stay - nothing was too much trouble for her even though she was very busy. Tom served us in the restaurant and was pleasant and very good at his job, making us feel that he really cared about our experience in the restaurant and the other member of staff was the gentleman who served in the restaurant and was also night porter. All of these staff were great and I would like to say a big thankyou to all of them for making our weekend extra special.

OK onto the actual hotel - the only thing that spoils the hotel somewhat is the fact that you have to walk though the restaurant in order to get to all the ground floor rooms. This is unfortunate but cannot be avoided due to the layout of the hotel. Our room was clean and well appointed but had no view whatsoever, however I have stayed here before and I would suggest that anyone staying ask for a garden room which has direct access onto the lawns which is lovely especially on summer nights.

The hotel is lovely surrounded by wonderful countryside views but I have to say it is the staff that are an absolute credit to the hotel -we will definitely be back

Room Tip: ask for a garden room

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your wonderful and kind review. Lynne is thrilled to be mentioned in person, and like many hotels the bedrooms are accessed through other areas of the hotel as most of our rooms are on the ground floor. The garden superior rooms do have stunning views with seating area and are also larger rooms compared to our standard double rooms. Which are equally nice but do not have the views or patio seating area. In the meantime thank you for taking the time to write your review.
