Lovely Hotel. We stayed there as part of a bus group for 4 nights and it was fantastic. Nothing was too much bother. Lynne and her staff were absolutely brilliant. We travel as a group of pensioners every year and I think every-one in our party would agree with me that this was the best holiday yet. Rooms clean and comfortable food superb and the staff really made us so welcome. I would definately recomend this Hotel and would go back myself with my family for a stay.

Stayed with our family. Everyone was very helpful and food was very good. Children wanted room service and was dealt with no problem. Would stay again and recommend. Great location just off motorway m6.

lovely hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would have given 5 stars but for the meal i had. My partners was very enjoyable, I Had ordered chicken ceaser salad and the anchovies in it were too strong which left the dish tasting like fish rather than a chicken salad, also there were staff at the door at the end of the hall all night that did awaken us a few times because of talking and the exit door slamming. But apart from that a beautiful hotel , fantastic staff. the breakfasts and most if the meals are lovely.
Myself and my partner enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your kind review, we are sorry that our ceasar salad was not to your liking as traditional ceasar salad does contain anchovies both in the ceasar dressing and whole anchovies through the salad, if our guests would like us to remove them from the salad when ordering we will be pleased to do so. In the meantime thank you for your review and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us

Good stop for overnight between England and Scotland. Only 1.7 miles from M6. Pleasant rooms. Food is well prepared and presented with excellent service. The full breakfast is well recommended. The Garden view suite we had was a pleasure for us.

What a find a remarkable location , great accommodation and reasonably priced good food and drink in a hotel.

We arrived at this hotel and met the receptionist who was polite and helpful , we were booked in and received a room upgrade, the room was rear facing on the ground floor and backed on the the garden the room was part of the extension of the hotel.
The room was well appointed and clean with all that you would require in a hotel room, TV,hairdryer and tea making facilities along with what you would expect a bed etc…. and a nice bathroom with shower over bath.

We were pleased to see that all the draught beers and ciders on offer in the bar were all priced the same and also a reasonable price for a hotel as you all know hotels sometimes just don't know what to charge for alcohol buy it is usually well over priced here its not the case.

The hotel offers a 6,7,8 club I think on Monday to Thursdays and a Steak Club on Fridays I would ask you to see the web site for the details to much for me to convey on here just to say food is good and reasonably priced.

Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is a good standard served very well.

Now well I bet you are probably thinking what the Vicar has got to do with all this, we got talking to the owner manager Mr Wright who explained to us the history of the hotel and it seems it used to be the Vicars residence in days gone by and also showed us an old picture of the building with the Old Vicar stood alongside.

If you find yourself in this part of Scotland and need accommodation it is worthwhile giving this establishment a call great hotel in a great setting with polite helpful staff.

Thought would be safe with a Best Western, especially after reading other reviews and having knowledge of others in the chain but didn't hit the mark. We booked for a few days break. Was travelling with a mobility impaired relative. Room was spotless and clean. Bathroom had been partially adapted with walk-in shower. However, the toilet, although with a handrail, was very low and we had to fit a seat raiser. Storage in the room was poor- only four coat hangers in wardrobe and all drawers in the "period" furniture were too small for useable storage so had to live out of our suitcases for the duration.
Dining room: menu was very limited with a pre-printed regular menu. The "specials" seemed to rotate between two options every second night so if staying for a few nights was a bit of a turn off. Service a bit odd - was asked if everything OK every few minutes or so- too intrusive. Seemed to be a game of who could ask the most times. Table clearing was too fast- took plates away before other person had finished so always felt rushed. Best one was when we got our starter at the same time as our main course- after a 30 minute wait.

When we arrived and booked for dinner, we explained that one of us would require a chair with arms. However, EACH TIME we went to the dining room- breakfast and dinner, we had to ask for a chair to be swopped with the resultant disruption- let's draw attention to the disability! How difficult can it be?

Staff were pleasant if a bit too focussed on speed rather than quality.

Sorry guys but missed the mark. Won't be back.

Dear reviewer,we are truly disappointed that your stay with us did not live up to your expectations each of the issues you have raised in this review would have been resolved immediately had you brought them to our attention ,the tables in the restaurant are used by all guests and tables are allocated once a guest chooses to join us for breakfast /lunch/ dinner at which point your special chair request was immediately sorted. In the meantime thank you for your constructive review

This hotel is beautiful. The rooms are stunning, the views are gorgeous and the food is amazing! I would advise going with a car because most things to do in the area are a fair drive away. But I'd you want to do nothing, this is the most beautiful place you will find to do it.
