Good location less than 5 minute walk from sea. Newly refurbished bedrooms. Excellent lunch and evening meals. Good choice at breakfast with full Scottish breakfast included in room rate. I stayed here on 3 occasions so far this year. Staff are friendly and most have been there for a long time

Stayed at the Chestnuts on Saturday night after spending Friday night at the Savoy Park as part of a Wedding Party. The room at the Chestnuts differed from many I have stayed in as the ensuite wasn't just a box, built in to the existing room. We had dinner in the bar and the food was great. The hotel has... More

We visited this venue on our recent trip through the UK and what a wonderful experience. The building itself is a grand period mansion and the interior design and decor enhance the impression of a time of style and luxury. The staff are welcoming and professional while remaining friendly and conversational. They have a fine range of local and international... More
