I was in this hotel for business, one night only and despite the fact that its a little far away and in a secluded part, its a beautiful setting.
The Hotel is a nice old building, very traditional and very beautiful, with classic wooden bar and a great selection of whiskeys! ;)
The room was nice, cosy, and the heating was working and quick to make the room comfortable, and went interrupted all night long (I have stayed in places where the heating is turned off dunring the nights!). Tidy albeit a little bit tired.
Little details (like a shoe-polishing box and an extra blanket and duvet) were great details.
The service was good, the waitresses both at dinner and brakfast were not only nice but efficient and helpful despite the fact that was very busy.
Bed was comfy, nice pillows aswell, and the setting is a quiet place to sleep.
The only downside was the cricking floorboards and thin walls (we heard all what was going on in the neighbouring rooms! :P)
The food was very good, good value for money, fair priced.
At dinner the choices were very nice, uncomplicated but delicious food (my salmon in drambuie sauce was really tasty!) and good sized portions. For dessert dont miss the icecream served with baileys!!
Breakfast was all you would expect: great buffet and choices of juices (orange, grapefruit, apple...) and cereals. Coffee was ok but the tea was lovely! You also have a choice of porridge (which I didnt have) and the traditional scottish breakfast with toast and again a great choice of butter, spreads, marmalade, jams, etc.
It has a great setting, lovely views of the forth but as it is a rural setting the roads are a little bit dodgy to get there and some people just drive like mad!! hardly the fault of the hotel though.
Finally it has a lot of space for parking :) which is great.
For a weekend away, is a good choice.
