We had sirloin steak and chips with mushrooms, onion rings and tomatoes.The plate was big and it was full. We will certainly go back next time we... More

I booked this room before I read the reviews and was a bit worried about what it would be like. I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. My room was lovely - clean and comfortable. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the two meals I had whilst there were delicious. Breakfast in the morning was well worth... More

When I got to my room again it seemed clean and tidy but the longer I stayed in the room the more dirt I was finding. The... More

My room seemed really clean and comfortable. The only thing the maid forgot to empty was the trash can in the bathroom from the previous person that stayed there . The complementary breakfast was pretty good the complementary dinner was pretty lame just had sandwich meat and buns. But what do you want? most hotels don't have a complementary dinner.

Excellent Hotel for its price, the staff were very pleasant and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. Will be stopping there again. The breakfast was very nice. Got a bedroom with a view of the River Tay, Very nice indeed.

This hotel is probably the worst I've stayed at. They got our booking wrong to start, then gave us a new room with two twin beds instead of one queen. The lobby and stairs were nice but the room was disgusting. Everything was old, worn and smelly. There was also mold all over the bathroom. We couldn't leave soon enough... More

We went with the reviews on TripAdvisor, the photo's & price. None of which we found were accurate. We changed room three times because various things were seriously wrong with the each room. The rooms were unclean & smelly...like a wet cold cellar. The carpets very worn & ripped, with holes in floorboards showing through the carpet. The shower was... More
