Rooms desperately need updating. Our ensuite was damp and smelly. Bed very uncomfortable. Food was adequate. The highlight was sharing our table with a lovely couple. Sorry to say but we would not recommend this hotel.

My holiday went well for most of the time. Have stayed in this hotel on numerous occasions, even with previous owners. Am impressed with the amount of modernising Daish have done over a short time, but are let down by the staff shortage in the restaurant causing poor service.

Had a very enjoyable stay. Sea view room was good and very clean. Bedding brilliant, plenty of cupboard space. Great windows opened. Decorating was in progress , which must be like Forth Bridge and good to see. Not disruptive at all. Staff friendly but could have been more informed before making assumptions. Advertised coach trips may not happen if Hotel...
