Me, hubby and baby treated ourselves to a wee night away. When we booked with the lovely and helpful Julie I knew we would enjoy ourselves. And we did. We booked here as we were hedging our bets about the best way to spend the next day (my birthday) depending on what the weather did...... if the sun shone we were heading to Loch Lomond. – if it didn’t the Riverside Museum and Kelvingrove. Either way is 20 minutes by train. Ah, Scotland and the weather, it was the latter the next day. Great day out.
The stay in the hotel was a giggle from start to finish. We booked into a premier room but for some unfathomable but unquestionably most excellent reason we were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite. Result!! At least it was for the two year old – this must be the least child friendly room we have ever stayed in... – she loved it!
There was no lift, couldn’t find the room as the number wasn’t on the door, no travel cot that was asked for, glass mirrored furniture with sharp edges, two loud functions happening in tandem, no high chairs, no gated outdoor space and too many cars and very much car park...
.. but.. - the biggest trampoline (bed) we have ever seen, the loveliest staff, restaurant with live music with a real live singer at their in-house piano (he was a magnificent and unexpected treat), food to die for at incredibly reasonable prices, - fillet steak and stroganoff, yum,. .and, did I mention the wonderful staff?, an incredible breakfast (check its included in your booking)..... and a location that affords choices.
Still smiling as I write. Lots you could pick fault with, but so much more that you can’t –we went with the flow and that made for a special treat - one of the best days away we have ever had. .. and a huge thank you to all the staff who made that for us. xx
