“Restaurant Review”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Went here for dinner without booking but we were still able to be seated.

Staff were pleasant and efficient.

We both started with haggis, neeps and tatties with a cream sauce. Sorry to say, it was a bit bland and the sauce was a little watery.

I had pork belly as a main course which was good and my wife had mussels, which were okay.

We shared the dessert of Crème Brulee served with poached strawberries. The custard was nice but the topping could have been glazed better.

It was not very expensive and the food reflected this.

No better than average I'm afraid.

Comfortable single room, friendly staff. I missed breakfast due to an early start but staff were happy to prepare a packed lunch. Clean room though a little dated. Lovely location and ample parking on the street outside. Cannot comment on dinner as I didn't eat there.

We had our wedding reception here and I cannot fault the staff or hotel. It is indeed going through renovations but we were well aware of this when we booked back in January and it was not a concern.
All staff were very helpful & friendly during the meal and reception afterwards. The reception room was bright, beautifully laid out and the garden was just as good. We had our welcome drinks here and it was fab!
Our room at night was very comfy, well equipped and clean. Breakfast was tasty & filling.
All in all we had an excellent experience here. Thank you Joanna and staff!

Good location and good breakfast. We stayed in a twin room that was a good size, unfortunately the compliments stop there, the hotel as a whole but mainly the room was very dated, as such there were parts of the room and indeed the bathroom that looked grubby. The room was cleaned well but certain things need changing such as the bathroom to make this hotel worth the money. The stay was fine but not worth the price they charge per night, also a little warning. When booking through a third party company be wary not to be charged twice! We had an issue where the agency payment had not been received by the hotel so they also asked for payment, although they dealt with this well I am concerned that had I not been sure of this i could have ended up paying double.

First time staying here and definitely would return. Our room was a good size, warm and comfortable with clean beds, but could definitely do with refurbishing and new mattresses. More than made up for by the food. Our dinner was excellent, particularly the scallops and black pudding - highly recommended! Breakfast was also a very high standard. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, so many thanks

In short, TV broken, not heating, no hot water, UHT milk 7 months out of date, wallpaper hanging off, whole place smelled awful (damp), numerous large stains on an un-hoovered carpet. Dried out fry up in the morning (obviously left drying up under the grill)All in all, the worst hotel I've stayed in. Only saving grace was the food on the dinner menu. I originally booked for a night and phoned the day before to say i would book in that night too as there was no booking for the family room we were in, told they couldn't do a deal, so would rather the room was empty than take a discount, strange. Bad management!!
