“Cracking place for something to Eat!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

As I live local, the Abbotsford Hotel is a favorite Destination for something to Eat, the menu has a good selection and the prices are spot on, the staff are always fantastic and always look after us.
I would highly recommend this place for something to eat.

I was booked into this hotel by someone else and when I turned up I have to say that, from the outside, it didn't look much. The corridor down to my room was dated, but the room was as good as any Holiday Inn. The pub and staff, food and drink however, were brilliant and made my stay very good indeed. They couldn't have been more attentive, the service was as fast as anywhere and the quality was very good indeed - portion sizes were like everywhere in Scotland, generous!

If I was in the area again, I'd certainly come back.

I recently stayed at the Abbotsford Hotel for five days with a group of sixteen people and was very impressed with the staff and facilities.

The staff, particularly James and Karen, was always very accommodating and willing to help. James was very knowledgeable and had answers for all of our questions whether it was about local attractions or how to get somewhere. He even had the staff come in early one day so we could get a hot breakfast an hour earlier than they normally start serving. Karen and James were quick with a smile and Karen even let us check on our flights on her computer prior to our departure.

The facilities were immaculate and comfortable and they had everything I needed for a pleasant stay. The restaurant had delicious food, in fact, we ate breakfast and dinner there (and lunch when we weren’t out visiting other cities) every day of our stay…it was so good (favorites include the peppered salmon, chicken carbonara and the toffee crunch pie). The pub was roomy and was a comfortable place to stay and have a drink and a conversation or watch football on one of several large flat screen televisions.

Again, I was impressed during our stay but if there was one thing that made it, it would be the staff. Thank you so much (especially James and Karen).

We had a medium sized group staying for the week and several times we asked for special accomodations (dining, social event, etc.) which were supported graciously and without hesitation. The family and staff running this place made us feel welcomed. The rooms were very comfortable and the meals were excellent. We have placed this location on our approval list for future stays.

Room Tip: All the rooms were similar and very comfortable

The accommodations and staff here at the abbots ford set the bar for international travel to Scotland. We had a large group with multiple requests ranging from room, food and drink requirements and James and his staff took care of everyone of them. If you travel to Scotland, abbots ford is a great place to stay! Thanks again to James and the abbots ford staff!

We stayed here for 2 nights when attending a local wedding. The rooms were clean and functional. The restaurant served reasonable food at a fair price. What makes this hotel "very good" is the service. Every single member of staff that we spoke to, be they receptionist, chambermaid or waiter was friendly and helpful. We felt welcome and that our custom was valued. If visiting Dumbarton again we would certainly stay there.
