Booked to stay here for a Reunion with former schoolfriends. We had arranged a Lunch and they gave us a Room separate from the main restaurant for a bit more privacy and they even turned off the Music so we could all hear each other! Food was excellent although the Fixed Menu is confusing as you can only order a Starter + a Main but not a Main + a Dessert, unlike most other places! Service was discreet but there when we needed them. At the evening Dinner, the Service and Food were once again excellent but although there was a good choice of Beers, surprisingly they do not offer House Wines with the Meals and the cost of a Bottle of Wine is about 20% more expensive compared to most other Pub/Restaurant Chains and Independents. Our Room was larger than we expected; with very comfortable beds and the Bathroom was spotless! Tea/Coffee facilities, Free Wifi, Ironing Boards and an Iron plus a Fridge come with the Room as does a Telephone which many Guests would welcome in case of an Emergency rather than having to leave the room to get help or use your own phone to contact the national number.Many Chain Hotels don't offer this and this Hotel should be applauded for providing this extra peace of mind for it's Guests. Breakfast was superb but carries a Warning - you will need to be really hungry to tackle the Big Scottish Breakfast as well as the Full Breakfast but there's lots of choices for those with less of an appetite. If you want a walk after that there is the Marina to go around or the beautiful Sensory Gardens next to the Hotel are well worth visiting. The Hotel offers excellent value for money and look for the special all-inclusive Offers during the week. Don't miss this.
