Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent. I requested a table for 6 for lunch at the last minute, the Fort went above and beyond and moved a few tables around to accommodate us. Good menu with something for everyone: everything from soup, baked potatoes, burgers, to a full blown lunch and all proper sized helpings. Staff were friendly and helpful. Prices are not ridiculous. We all agreed we had had a very positive experience. We’ll be back again soon.

Went on a date to Fort's restaurant, and I don't think we'll be back. We waited a while to be seen to be seated, we had a reservation. We were seated and then again waited at least 15mins to been seen for a drinks order, the waitress then seemed annoyed that we were also ready to order food. I feel that it was disrespectful when she asked if I wanted a half portion, but did not ask my partner. The wait on drinks wasn't too bad, however, half the order was missing and the waitress didn't hang around long enough for us to ask about it. The food took about 30mins to arrive, and the restaurant was not busy, the food was nice and the portions were good, but the service really let the kitchen down. The staff seemed more interested in chatting behind the bar than doing their jobs, I witnessed a party be sat on an unwiped table

3 of us came for tea on 12th October, I ordered Fish, Chips, Onion Rings & Mushy peas all of which were served warm, my wife had the Haddock Mornay which she said was fabulous & nice & hot, my Sister-in-Law had the Steak Pie which was warm. Come on guys, what is going on? Your food is usually amazing but last night was a farce - The waitress that served us was amazing. We will be back, but we’re thoroughly disappointed with last nights food

Had a great meal in the beer garden. Service was excellent. I’m partially disabled and one of the waiters went out of his way to ensure I was comfortable by giving me a lovely cushion for my back. The food was first class as well. Will definitely be returning.

I had a very comfortable night's stay here on my way up to a short holiday in the Highlands. The room was of an excellent standard, recently re-furbed and well furnished. The marble bathroom was very nice indeed - very good shower and everything was spotlessly clean. The night manager (Andy) was friendly and helpful - nothing was too much. Thank you!

As a vegan, was really impressed that there was a separate vegan/vegetarian menu but no vegan options for dessert which doesn’t make sense. Even a simple sorbet would have been an acceptable option. Really need to up the game for vegan options over and above main courses.

Brown and small..... Apartment #1. After a 5hr drive to the hotel I checked in excited about my expensive Apartment booking. Firstly no hotel parking. 2 doors and a flight of stairs up to the "Apartment ". The brown carpeted stairs led me to a brown carpeted living room with brown textured wallpaper.... was like my gran died and I was clearing out her house??!! Kitchen and bathroom seem to have been refurbished but as fir the rest cheap and tacky. Hardly any natural light and pathetic lighting throughout. Felt more like a hostel than an apartment. Perspex behind the dining table? Don't know who stays there but must be messy eaters? Won't be going near it again. Stayed in better travel lodges than that apartment.
