Reviewed 28 May 2014

We are just back from a two night stay. This hotel is centrally located within easy reach of shops and restaurants.it was great value for money as we booked it through wowcher.would definitely go bk with same deal. The two men at reception were very nice (Douglas and Alistair). Rooms were lovely and beds were very comfy .The breakfast was very very nice a good selection and the staff were very attentive.We all enjoyed the pool sauna steam room and the gym which was all included in price.very nice hotel and lovely staff ..thanks.

Girlfriend booked this for my birthday weekend 24th May for 2 night! First imprecations nice building with interior to suit. Service with a smile from receptionist. Booking in easy, got to room and it was like a seat on a easy jet flight! Toilet was spotless and rooms very clean. Went to spa and it was good part from the walk though the gym with people training and staring at you awkwardly! Went to dinner next night at hotel and the food was microwaved! They nuked my haggis and chicken taste dirty n dry! But breakfast was good! Staff were nice but think they knew how the "chefs" we're getting food out so quick!!!! Wouldn't go back! But had a good time with the mrs on trips!

"Room like a seat on an Easy Jet Flight!" I must say this comment sounds very strange to me and I'm at a loss to understand it! Most of the feedback in this review is actually very positive (apart from the comment about the haggis) - Good first impressions, service with a smile, spotlessly clean & nice staff. The reviewer seems to focus on one particular dish on our menu that wasn't to his taste saying very little else about the rest of the meal and allowing this one thing to mask what would appear to be an enjoyable stay in every other respect.

How delighted we all were with this choice of hotel for our annual Ramblers weekend away. From the moment we arrived we felt at ease and welcome. A lovely old fashioned charm about this place with attentive staff, good food and excellent accommodation. Our rooms were all reported to be spacious, clean and elegantly furnished. The pool was a bonus, being warm and a good size, with sauna and steam room too. The location of the hotel is perfect for every purpose, being so centrally located for the lovely shops and with good walks on the doorstep. Definitely the best yet and would recommend without hesitation!

We stayed here for 1 night, using the hotel as a stop over. We stayed in room 8 and was very pleased as the room was large with a double bed and a single. The bathroom was clean and everything worked as it should. The bar was a bit sparse and a bottle of wine for £16.95 was I think rather expensive so we did go out for a drink.
Breakfast was included, and was plentiful. There was a good selection of everything from fruit, cereal and the normal bacon and eggs. It is on a help your self service so you can keep going up.. Service was good and everyone helpful.

We had dinner, b&b deal. The room was fine, bed was comfy enough. The breakfast was continental or full Scottish, you choose. The 3 course dinner was very filling although the deal we had gave us a limit & we found sticking to this hard. You could eat anything but had to pay! The leisure facility's were good the pool was small but fine the steam room, sauna & jacuzzi were the same as anywhere else & the gym was fine. The best bit about the hotel were how friendly all the staff members were, 10 out of 10 for the staff!

Got a cheap last minute deal on dinner bed and breakfast. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Brought our wee dog as the hotel is pet friendly. Room was clean, tidy and a decent size with everything provided (bathrobes, hairdryer, toiletries, tea coffee etc) hair dryer was rubbish but atleast one was provided! Dinner in the reivers restaurant was very impressive. Deal included a set menu at £17.50 3 courses, we decided to order from the al a carte instead but the staff still deducted the £17.50 each from the total which was good. Lovely spa area. Tried to book an appointment with beauty therapist who was unfortunately unavailable due to a bereavement. Was advised there was someone working on her behalf however staff were unsure of temporary phone number to get in touch. Apart from this small hitch due to poor communication, we had a very good stay and will be back.
