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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We booked a Family Deluxe Room with 3 beds, and arrived to find that they had overbooked and didn't have this room available. The man behind the counter offered, at no extra charge, two rooms with two beds each, which was fine. The next morning, the woman on duty charged me for two rooms and basically accused me of lying when I recounted what happened at check in. Additionally, the tv in the room was perilously perched on a bureau just barely wider than the tv legs and was not secured to the wall. Needless to say, it tipped over and almost fell on my 3 year old. No one seemed to care if she was ok or not. For their careless tv placement, I was charged for a new tv. Our one room, one night stay turned into an over $700 ordeal! Stay away!

I have just stayed at this hotel for a business trip with a colleague. The hotel staff were very accommodating and helpful, room very nice, restaurant excellent. Only fly in the ointment is the lounge bar service was very slow to wait 20 minutes for a beverage is poor.

A lovely hotel for a wedding, staff we very attentive, food was lovely, breakfast was really good - the rooms were lovely and beds very comfortable. Only downside was in the rooms I found that trying to find a plug to charge electronics, then another for hair dryer, i could only really use one the two that were on the dresser i couldn't get the plugs in and those that had lights plugged in were too small to plug things in. (Small thing but when so many things need charged not ideal)

We arrived after flying in overnight. We had an excellent lunch in the lounge before heading to our room. The room was well appointed, comfortable with an excellent shower. We had a great evening meal followed by a spectacular breakfast the next morning. The stay was great value. All the staff were friendly, attentive & efficient. We have stayed a number of times over the years and the standards remain excellent

Lovely hotel, very clean and well maintained. Dog friendly. Stayed for 4 nights, incredibly comfortable. We couldn’t find anywhere better locally for food! Good selection with beautiful food! Nice little garden at the rear, plenty of parking. Friendly and welcoming staff. Good connections locally for days out.

Love this hotel, everyone is so helpful and friendly and the rooms are beautiful! Big comfortable beds and lovely big bath tubs to soak in. The rooms have all that you could need for your stay. We had an evening meal in the restaurant, what a treat! The food and the service were just amazing. Breakfast was lovely as well, nice choice and the hot food is made for you, it’s not from a buffet. Plenty parking, great WiFi, would definitely recommend

My husband and I spent a night in the Drumossie Hotel and were very impressed. From the moment we stepped through the front doors . We entered a bright fresh shiny reception area to the right is a beautiful lounge area with lovely large leather sofas and chairs with large coffee tables ideal for catching up with friends . Checking in was easy ,we were greeted by friendly polite staff that were very eager to help.Our room was exceptional very big and with a very large bed and was beautifully laid out and spacious.The bathroom was huge with a walk in shower and a bath. We were meeting friends in the lounge for a catch , up we had food and drinks teas and coffees nothing was too much to ask for the staff were very accommodating. Dinner in the restaurant in the evening was fantastic well presented and delicious , staff were very attentive and friendly we had this same pleasure in the morning for breakfast Thank you for this 5 star experience we felt extremely spoilt

I was a little sceptical of going to a party night as I know from working in hospitality how difficult it can be to serve such a large room and keep everyone happy but the Drumossie did a sterling job. The food was delicious (I don't often say that about turkey from hotels) and the staff were polite and helpful. The entertainment provided did a great job at getting everyone up and dancing and the whole place had a great atmosphere. Already planning to come back next year!

Disgusting party night on 1 December. Most concerned that the Drumossie upset my colleagues and me by defaming our company. They said something very demeaning over the microphone in a room full of over 300 people. They have refused to take it seriously and are ignoring my complaints. I’m now encouraging the company I work for to contact Trading Standards.
