If money were no object we would stay at a hotel like this every time!
We love the rural setting but after three or four stays the weather still hasn't been good enough to walk the grounds.
The hotel is traditional in style and maintains consistently high standards. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but would benefit from the addition of a mini-fridge, safe and more powerful hairdryer.
We usually stay on a room only basis when visiting family in East Kilbride. However, on this occasion we took up an attractive bed and breakfast offer with dinner at £20 per person.
The dinner choice was limited to four starters and four main courses or other items from the a la carte menu for a supplement. Dessert and coffee were also optional extras. Having taken your order, the waiters are obviously trained to extract a bit more from you by offering mineral water, not tap water, and breads from the starters menu. Wine starts at about £5.75 for a small glass or £24 for a bottle. For a three course meal with a bottle of wine, allow more like £40 per person rather than the fixed price menu at £20. Having said that, we could not fault the standard of food, service
or presentation in a relaxed and informal but nevertheless thoroughly professional restaurant.
Breakfast was excellent but would have been pricey at £17.50 as a stand alone item. There was no stay-warm buffet which kept the food lukewarm but only cooked to order food served piping hot. Alternatively, the cold buffet contained a good selection of cold meat, cheese, fruit, yoghurt and pastries. All produce was high quality and we couldn't ask for a better breakfast.
We would stay here every time, subject to affordability.
