We stayed here for two nights in November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. a warm welcome, beautiful location, sumptuous rooms with lovely views. Now I'm a bit of a 'breakfast bigot' and hate nothing more than a poorly prepared cooked breakfast with poor-quality produce... Not an issue at the Blackaddie I am pleased to report! We also had dinner on... More

My wife and I visited Blackaddie in Pheasant room for three nights in June 2016. The accommodation, food, drinks and service were all excellent. Ian's beautifully cooked dinners were particularly enjoyable.

Recommended this hotel for two friends having had previous good reports ,Unfortunately they have problems with heating so rooms are cold.Towels remain wet and new ones are not easy to source .The menu is clearly from Brakes Catering or similar giving no flexibility in dishes may be cost effective but from a chef really . Positive criticism should be appreciated... More

I called in whilst out walking the dog in the afternoon and did not have great expectations either that the bar would be open or that dogs would be welcome.I was wrong on both counts and enjoyed an refreshing Gin and Tonic from a courteous barman.

Food was outstanding this is real fine dinning. Breakfast was as good as I have ever had. Staff were very happy and helpful, It was great to be able to take our dog with us.
