Just wanted tea and a scone - you'd have thought we were asking for something exotic. Expressionless waiter silently took our order. Returned some considerable time later with tea, milk, sugar, scones cups etc. but no hot water. We asked for a pot of hot water. Acorn Antiques style, he returned after another long pause with a milk jug full...

Enjoyed a 2 night stay over the weekend with friends. Always a pleasure and the views are simply stunning. Great cocktails, tasty food and good service. Staff are friendly and helpful. Timeless elegance. Only disappointment this time was that there was no smoked haddock available for breakfast.

Was really disappointed visit did not live up to expectations. Had been told by others it was beautiful. It was grubby, full of much older clientele which meant a group of girls didn't want to make too much noise and we had to be very reserved. The hotel is in a state of disrepair, flaky paint, handles missing off wardrobe...

I review lots of hotels on trip advisor and am rarely disappointed with the hotels I've booked, taking into account the star rating and price of each hotel. My husband and I booked this hotel for a little Minimoon after our wonderful wedding due to its proximity to Glasgow, it having a spa and it's 4 star rating. We booked...

Never noticed the small print stating that the total for the evening meal was £25 pp. We stayed well within that limit and excluding a bottle of wine our food bill was £46. However we still had an extra...

Had a fabulous two night stay, staff were excellent, can't say anything bad about this hotel, food was amazing. We were booked in for a massage and facial, which was ideal as we were leaving that same day, it relaxed us for the journey home, but regretted not going to jacuzzi after it. We were booked into a four poster...

This hotel has really pulled its socks up since I visited 6 years ago. Staff are lovely. Decor is spot on. Cleanliness levels high. Pool great. Food is good and menu impressive. We stayed NY day for a night so it was pricey - but actually feel it was worth it for the experience. If you're looking for WOW -...
