Been before around 3 years ago & it was excellent. Went with family again for birthday meal and had sizzling chilli prawns for a starter which were basically served in a puddle of microwaved butter mixed with slivers of chilli. Dish was overcooked & tasteless. Main was a sirloin that I think was done on a flamegrill. Whoever thought a...

Had lunch with 20 friends for a 60th birthday , meal was delicious with a good gluten free choice after discussing with table service . Staff were professional and attentive . Only disappointment was the ice cream sundae that my wife had .

A tidy, friendly, welcoming hotel. The restaurant was very busy and the food was excellent with the Las Vegas burger a must for the hungry traveller. Breakfast was as very good as you can order what you want with the popular choice being the full Scottish breakfast. The hotel location is away from the main road so very peaceful and...

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...

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...

I spent a night in this hotel whilst attending a wedding nearby.

The only fault I could come up with was the...
