I am a tour guide and tour agent and had arranged to make a return trip to the Grapes with 2 visitors from Australia. We were touring Armstrong country and had lunch at the Grapes prior to returning the same night to stay and for dinner.
Sunday lunch was excellent a good choice on the menu and the service was quick and the food delicious.The staff are welcoming and helped with luggage. Rooms are clean and beds very comfortable. Dinner is a must. The food is delicious, beautifully prepared and generous portions.The salad platter is summer on plate, fresh salad vegetables, coleslaw,strawberries, red currants,assorted cheeses, crusty bread etc. If you can manage a dessert they are stunning and very tasty. Great chefs. Breakfast is also very, very good. Trevor and Glynis are wonderful friendly proprietors and have excellent staff to make this a place one hotel you will return many times.As I work in the tourism industry and travel all over Scotland, I know excellent accommodation/food when I find it and the Grapes is one of the very very best.Enjoy!
Room 2 is front facing and a lovely room.
