“Good, relaxing stay”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Stayed here one night on business, good, friendly check-in, ample size room, clean and all usual frills. Free leisure facilities including pool, spa pool, sauna and steam room, all good and free to use for residents, steam room wasn't working but no great shakes, dined in the resturant, starter and main course were good quality and presented well and prices about average for a Best Western, bar drinks a little expensive but again, in line with the type of hotel. No complaints and a good, relaxing stay, would use again.

Arrived just as a coach party were entering hotel, but staff made time to book us in, offering help with bags etc. Room was a bit disappointing, small and a bit tired. Also was on the third floor, no lift and as I am disabled could have been a probkem. Leisure facilities good, bar prices silly at £3.75 for a pint of best which retails at £2.20 in Kirkintilloch just diwn the road.

My sister in law & I stayed overnight at this hotel & it was fab. There was a girls night on which we booked separate. The pool, sauna & jacuzzi was great. The food was excellent & the rooms were great. The staff couldn't have been nicer. I would definetly recommend this to anyone.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We did use Tesco Tokens to book a two night stay so wondered if our room would be poorer quality. The room was actually a nice big corner room and very nicely done out. The only fault with the room were the windows which were a bit draughty. I had a lovely swim in the swimming pool which wasn't very big but very quiet when I was in so not a problem.
When we arrived at the hotel two reception staff were talking and we weren't acknowledged for a while and although we were booked in efficiently we weren't really made to feel welcome. The reception often seemed to be left unattended with phones ringing etc and I couldn't find a bell to ring when I wanted to ask them a question. It was the same when we checked out, no-one asked if we had enjoyed our stay or said have a good journey or anything. I felt some staff training would be helpful. We had the feeling no-one was properly in charge while we were there.
We had a meal on the first night and the food was really good although not generous portions. My husband got the smallest Espresso Coffee we have ever seen and refused to accept it. The waiter came back and took the sugar away saying "You won't be needing this then" The menu didn't really seem to change either so we didn't eat here the second night. The two glasses of wine we had were pretty expensive.
Breakfast was really good with plenty of buffet selections and you could order freshly cooked fried and poached eggs and other things. The breakfast staff were very pleasant.

Had a lovely relaxing overnight stay with breakfast and use of spa facilities. Reception very friendly on arrival our room was a good size and had everything we needed. We used the spa facilities which were nice enough. We had dinner in the restaurant the food was very good but the service was quite unorganised and slow. The bar is cosy and relaxing and the lounge areas are very nice. Breakfast was excellent there was a good choice of continental and traditional scottish breakfast. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

We had a 2 night dinner, bed and breakfast stay. Have stayed in the hotel a number of times and good to see that the bedrooms have been refurbished to a good standard and all communal areas are fine with nice big lounge to relax. Only disappointment was dinner on the first night. Quality was very poor and portion sizes small. Service was very slow and a bit disorganised. On the second night we were tempted to eat elsewhere but wanted to give the diner a second chance and it was a little better although the set menu was more or less the same choice as the night before. I recommend the hotel for a short break but please address the evening meal.
