My wife and I spent a couple of nights at the Briardene - and we can thoroughly recommend staying there.
Despite arriving hours early (we were travelling up by coach and it arrived 1.5 hours ahead of schedule), they were so welcoming. We got there around 8 - and check in is at 1:30. But they settled us into the guest lounge, brought us tea, biscuits and newspapers - and let us nod off in there! They also got our room ready as quickly as possible - and so we were able to check in at 11:30, two hours early.
The rooms themselves are decorated to a high standard and full of thoughtful touches. The bed is very comfortable (we got two great nights sleep).
We did not dine there in the evening, but can report that breakfast is top class - the produce is clearly high quality and was delicious.
Transport into town is also ideal, with a bus stop and Lauderdale Avenue tram stop directly outside.
We cannot recommend the Briardene highly enough.
