Our first impression was very good, we had a very friendly welcome. The reception areas are comfortable and fairly smart. The room itself was a little dark and there was too much furniture for the room - we had to move a table chair to fit our daughter's little blow up bed in. We were on the north side of the hotel and it was very dark, but on the plus side it was also very quiet. As noted elsewhere the decor is very tired, you can see this particularly in the bathroom. I wouldn't pay the full price for the hotel for this reason (we won a competition to Knockhill races and the hotel stay was paid for by the company running the competition).
Money has clearly been spent on the tvs and beds (the one in our room was huge!), and if you're used to sleeping on an orthopaedic mattress, then that would be fine, but I'm afraid it was just too firm a surface so I didn't get a great night's sleep. Surprisingly the pillows are also quite flat.
We had a mixture of the buffet and cooked breakfasts in the morning and these were fine (although all the toast was slightly singed). Checkout was quick, friendly and efficient.
