Booked a one night dinner bed and breakfast treat. Arrived early as I mistakenly thought the check in was 2pm but it was 3pm and so we could not check in until then. We were offered use of the swimming pool and leisure facilities while we were waiting, but we chose to go and have a snack at the bar instead. It would have been useful at this point if we had been able to use our £10 credit (given because we booked direct with MacDonald hotels website) however we did not know about the credit until we officially checked in!
When checked in the room was spot on, lovely comfortable bed with massive big pillows, complimentary water, and a chiller which you could have stocked if you so desire. The bathroom and shower were clean and stocked with Arran aromatics (which I love) lovely large towels on a hot towel rail - bliss on a cold evening!
We had a quick dip in the pool and used the sauna steam room and aromatherapy showers. The locker rooms are clean and well equipped with complimentary soap, moisturiser hairdryers etc.
Dinner in the evening was a £25 credit each towards the menu. If you choose all your 3 courses at once then you receive a complimentary prawn cocktail dish and also a sorbet! We did not do this but when we saw what other guests got we did not feel we had missed out! The food we did have was lovely and we couldn't find fault with it.
Breakfast the next morning was lavish, the cold buffet is plentiful with fresh fruit, cold meat, cheese, cereals, pastries fruit juices and smoothies then there is the option to have a cooked breakfast. We had the full English which is well cooked, however we both found it a little rich probably because nowadays we grill our breakfast and this was most definitely fried in rather a lot of oil!
The staff in this hotel are all polite and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
We would recommend the Hotel and will return at some point.
