This hotel was amazing! The decor was so beautiful, you can see the effort they put into it. The people who worked there were very welcoming and helpful and The Bothy was a stylish and sophisticated place to have breakinfast, lunch or dinner. Overall i loved it

Thank ohsab

I stayed here on 28th October on business and arrived at a building site. I appreciate that hotels need updating and refurbishing from time to time but it really needs to close to just get the work done without inconvenience to the guests. There was dust everywhere and you had to be careful not to brush against the walls in case of wet paint. I wouldn’t have minded this so much if I wasn’t awoken at 7am to the sounds of workmen shouting loudly out my window and their radio blaring music.

The room itself was shabby and in need of an upgrade. The rooms on the website look significantly better and it may be that I got given a shabby room as the others are currently being upgraded. The window sill in the bathroom was filthy and the sink chipped and grubby round the sink hole. However the icing on the cake was the presence of five or six woodlice (at least I hope thats all they were) crawling all over the bathroom floor in the morning! It didn’t exactly instil confidence in what might have been crawling around in the middle of the night! Yuck!

Having said all of that, the staff were very friendly and attentive and I am sure are having to work hard in the hotel’s current state of disarray.

We are so lucky to have this hotel on our doorstep! The restaurant / bar has recently been refurbished. Visited on the opening day and had a lovely meal. Staff very friendly and loving the new cocktails on the menu. The beer garden has also been upgraded and is a great spot on summer days!

Popped in on the off chance on Saturday evening for an early tea with our daughter to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Upgraded bar and eating area looks terrific. My daughter ordered a burger from the childrens menu, I ordered a steak and onion burger and my husband had steak pie. I tend to rate a place on the effort they put into their childrens menu and presentation of childrens food, I was not disappointed. Delicious meaty homemade burgers, salad with lovely dressing. My husband's steak pie had lovely big chunks of meat, very little fat. One of the best he has had in a longtime. The waitress who served us was polite, engaging and friendly. Through discussion we mentioned our reason for being there was our wedding anniversary - as we sat down, we were given two complimentary glasses of fizz. A really lovely touch and totally unexpected. We will be back and have recommened the Bothy to several people.

The newly refurbished Bothy certainly has the Wow factor. Went in for lunch and drinks the other day and I must say I was blown away with what they had done to the place. The staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable with the new menu as we were spoiled for choice and couldn’t decide. Yes they are refurbishing the hotel, however I must say we didn’t notice at all as we were too busy working our way through the amazing cocktail list. Defiantly worth a visit and excellent value for money.
Looking forward to trying out their breakfast when I stay overnight for the rugby in November as the hotel is right across from the stadium.

Room Tip: The Haggis balls with Whisky gravy are a must!

Decided to try the newly renovated Bothy for food and drinks. The bar and eating area has been upgraded and looks very nice. However we were both disappointed in the new menu on offer. Old favourites that used to be served here such as Nachos, fajitas, mussels and scampi are no longer available which is a big shame. The burger and club sandwich we had were very average and quite pricey for the quality of food that was served. Basically won't be in a hurry to return as feel there is much better choice/quality on offer for the money elsewhere.

Good afternoon G0lidie1

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

Here at the Bothy we are delighted with our new look and glad you like it too, when updating our menu we tried very hard to get the balance of restaurant dishes and pub classics right, and while sadly we could not keep all the classics, we do still offer some of those tradional favouries like home made steak pie and freshly battered fish and chips.

I do hope to see you again soon.

Great food, great atmosphere in superb refurbished surroundings. Would highly recommend. Very child friendly with special cutlery and cups for kids, colouring fun and a toy box in the corner. Don't let this put you off if you are not dining with kids as you will hardly notice them as they have everything to keep them entertained. Great beers to keep the other half entertained too!
