“Good Value & Fantastic Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We only stayed one night with a Grabone voucher which included breakfast (which was delicious) and a welcome drink. The bar was a relaxing space with a lovely big fireplace for winter. The friendly staff made It really enjoyable and I wish we'd stayed longer. It's SO central and the rooms, although having slightly dated decor, were warm and clean and with those fantastic views. The good parking made a big difference as my husband is disabled so would definitely return.

Just returned from a weekend away at The Heartland Hotel. Fantastic hotel 5 minutes walk to town centre and has very warm and friendly staff, rooms were clean and tidy overlooking the lake. Breakfast was great. We had a meal in the restaurant one night and ordered the steak can honestly say it was mouth watering, probably one of the best steaks and meals i had, well done to the chef.
The only thing that needed to be sorted is wifi. The hour free goes on counting down even when your logged off and not using it. Fantastic hotel would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all on here

Stayed there for two nights on a Grab One Deal that included breakfast and drinks vouchers. Really good value as close to town and the view from balcony was great. Room was above reception so heard some noise from people either arriving or leaving but otherwise was quiet enough. Good parking on site for rental vehicle. Slightly dated décor however was nice and clean. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony view if you want one.

Great value for money for what they offer. Beautiful views of the lake from our view room. Easy walk to everything we want. Would stay again if I'm back this way again. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bar and restaurant attached but didn't try them in our limited time here.

What a view! From our room we looked straight down the lake and while sitting outside inches sunshine watched the Earnslaw coming back up the lake. We loved the easy walk into town, great not having to worry about parking. We also tried the buffet for breakfast, so well priced and a great selection. Thank you to all the staff who made our weekend great

We stayed here for 5 nights at the start of spring. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the room - plenty of space, clean and tidy. We didn't pay the extra $40 for a room with a view, but asked for one if possible - and got one, which was amazing. Good water pressure and long lasting hot water in the shower. Room heating for cool nights, although I found that the room stayed warm enough without it. Nice big TV if you're spending a bit of time in the room, and they have DVD players and DVDs you can borrow for free. Free parking as well, although no free wifi which was a bit disappointing. The hotel is close to town, but on a small hill - which is a slight annoyance... but it is also the reason why so many rooms have a view, so can't complain too much!

Room Tip: If you don't want to pay extra for a room with a view, request one anyway and they'll see wh...
