Stayed from Saturday to Monday as the wedding was on Sunday. Had evening meal which was reasonable prices and of good quality. On checking in found out there is no lift and only one disabled room. Service was good all around. Good choice of breakfast dishes. Rooms clean and the most powerful shower I ever encountered. It was £120 for... More

We both ordered bruschetta for starters and macaroni cheese for main Bruschetta was cheap garlic bread toasted on one side with a minuscule amount of cheese melted in the middle topped with three cherry tomatoes!!! - poor effort by kitchen but edible. Macaroni cheese arrived and the sauce it was served in was so thin I genuinely could have drank... More

The hotel was to a good standard, the restaurant was not value for money as the food was over priced and sometimes over cooked, every member of staff was friendly and very helpful but the wasps where a major problem inside and outside the hotel which was awful, pest control was definitely required.

We stayed at the Gilvenbank Hotel on 19/08 for a wedding we were attending there. We arrived at the hotel about half two and after putting our belongings into our room went down to the bar area for a drink. It was well laid out with a restaurant area at the top of the room with the bar/lounge area further... More

I spent a night in this hotel whilst attending a wedding nearby. Wasn't sure about booking here as I had never visited the hotel before but it was recommended by a member of my family and I was very pleased with the standard. Glad I took the up the suggestion. The only fault I could come up with was the... More

Returned to the Gilvenbank after some time in the "wilderness" This was a midweek visit and the hotel was very quiet. Once again booked into a superior room for the extra comfort and space. The staff are still extremely friendly and helpful and although we only stayed one night, we were delighted with the serenity of the hotel. Had dinner... More

This is quite a large restaurant which offers the standard pub grub fare. The service was good and informal and the food pleasantly presented. There is plenty parking and you don't feel rushed in any way. Nothing was either outstanding but neither was any dish below expectations.
