We had our wedding here few days ago. Bridal suite was fantastic. All members of staff were friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much bother. We were made very welcome. It was a pleasure to stay here and would recommend you always. Thank you for making our stay special

We had been in the car all day to get up to the Scottish border and it was just awesome to have a lovely hotel to stay in the first night. My little sister had never stayed in a hotel before and was so impressed with how pretty the place is. Great service, patience with our check-in issues, lovely breakfast....
