“Friendly staff ... simple rooms ... Good food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

After a 75 mile cycle ride in the roan we were pleased to see the grapes.

Really helpful and friendly staff and good food.

Also somewhere safe to park our bikes overnight.

Room at the top was basic but fine.

Overall a good stay.

Just returned from a great weekend , firstly it takes special people at the top of the house to keep not only the customers satisfied but all the staff behind the scenes and front of house happy,which Peter and Gail do in spades, they work all the hours possible and it shows in the friendly atmosphere this hotel has, and the locals contribute to all this with there friendliness, we felt comfortable from the minute we walked through the door ,cleanliness 5*,food 5*,we will definitely be returning to sample again the hospitality we received thank you all ,Jeanette,Bill

We had dinner at the Grapes whilst staying at Sorbietrees B and B just up the road. The food was simple and fine - excellent fish and chips, ok goats cheese tart, but the service was so slow. To be fair, even the chef came out to apologise for the speed or lack of it and the server did her best. The whole experience taught me to slow down, very slow, and chill out, which is probably what a holiday is supposed to do, and probably what everyone does in this part of the world.

We booked a double room here for Easter Sunday. We received a very warm welcome at the bar and we were shown to our room. We arrived around 2 o'clock and the place seemed very lively and had a great atmosphere from the start. Our room was still being cleaned when we arrived but it wasn't a problem as we were able to get in to our room and leave our bags before heading out for some local walking. The staff at the hotel were really friendly and helpful and let us know about meal times in the hotel. We took off for a small drive then a walk by the river which was beautiful and gorgeously clean. The scenery is stunning. When we returned to eat in the evening we found the hotel again to be busy and with a warm and fun atmosphere. Although it was busy, we found a table in the restaurant and we were told that there would be a bit of a wait for food but we were very happy to sit in the restaurant and have a drink. The menu was lovely and very varied along with all the usual fare such as fish n chips and steaks. My friend ordered the sea food platter and when it came, without too much of a waiting time, it was fresh and delicious looking and really well presented. However, I ordered the Haggis Stuffed Chicken Breast and although the stuffing was very good the chicken was extremely dry and I had to leave quite a lot of it. But this was the only disappointing part of the entire stay and I will definitely be going back to the Grapes.

This was one of many visits we have made so far this year and we keep coming back. We stay on Lidalia caravan park and our return trips to this area are mainly due to the hospitality of Peter and Gail, Brilliant value for money superb food and a warm welcome for the dog too. I find it hard to comprehend the opinion of Elizabeth E as we have been very impressed on every occasion and would not hesitate in telling all our friends and do, in fact we entertained 2 there this weekend one of which was in the catering business herself for many years, and was equally impressed. Well done Peter and Gail we will see you again soon, so impressed thinking about spending Christmas there too.

I visited the Grapes Hotel for Sunday Lunch 3 times and twice for evening meals. Each time the food has been good. I dined in both the Vine Restaurant and the bar with friends, family or as a couple and enjoyed each occasion.
