My daughter (9) and I stayed here whilst visiting relatives. The staff are polite and helpful, but the rooms are way past their refurbish-by date. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant, although we have before and it's always been very good. The breakfast was fine, but the tables for two (as is so often the case in hotels) are...

When my mate heard we were booked he recalled a dirty weekend with his now wife 30 years ago. Well times change, but this hotel doesn't. Comfortable and clean accommodation reasonable food, a good breakfast. What more do you want? Highly recommended

Our room was large with comfortable twin beds and high ceilings. The pub had a friendly atmosphere and the dining room was lovely. The staff was very welcoming and helpful,...

My wife and I stayed here on our way up to north of Scotland. We were greeted by really friendly staff and shown to our double room which was clean and spacious. The night we were there was "steak night" in the classic style restaurant and we had 2 rib eye steaks for £25 which were really tasty plus a...

Stayed for one night on a business trip. Great location in the town center and 200 meters from the train station. Friendly staff and helpful. Good rooms, a little old fashioned but had everything you need. Good value for money. Would definitely go back
