Arriving at 9.50pm with the restaurant closing at 10pm the receptionist ignored welcome totally opting instead to watch a guest book a train ticket. Finally after asking to book in please found out the restaurant was closed. Nobody to serve at the bar. 24h food was inedible. Room keys don't work. No apologies or attempt to make better. No one...

Pleasant room on the top floor with great views. Comfortable bed. Just what you'd expect. All the staff were friendly and efficient and seemed pleased to see us - not really like a "chain" hotel at all! But the star of the show must be the chef. Overall standard of food was excellent at the 1 breakfast and 2 lunches... More

Helpful friendly welcoming staff making our stay very pleasant.

Although very close to a number of very busy roads and very much in the center of things we found it quiet. We were part of a coach trip to Scotland and it was just an overnight stay.

Good points: Central location, parking and good gym facilities. The rooms are dated it must be said, probably soon due a Holiday Inn makeover, however they were clean and tidy as you'd expect. I did arrive early and they found me a room with ease which was helpful and appreciated. The gym facilities have basic equipment but a great view... More
