Fatastic hotel in lovely surroundings. We upgraded to a garden view room which was well worth it,with our own patio with table & chairs and a fabulous view. The weather was glorious for April and we were able to take advantage of this.
Everything about the hotel was perfect,especially the staff who pulled out all the stops to make us feel welcome. Food was really good,well presented and not expensive .Lovely comfy seats in the bar area. Would come back whenever we are in the area.Many,many thanks to your staff, you must be very proud of them.

Room Tip: A garden room is well worth the upgrade

My partner and I stayed here for a night with our jack Russell on our way down south, the staff were very helpful and polite.
The room itself was not the most modern room I've stayed in but it was very clean and ideal for having a dog! The room (19) had a patio door that lead out to beautiful views of countryside and it's own patio table and chairs.
The full Scottish breakfast in the morning was perfect.. Just what we needed to see us through the rest of our journey. I would recommend this hotel and we will be coming back again.

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review, the garden rooms do indeed have direct access to the gardens which is great when you have dogs needing to go for a walkie. Thank you again for your review and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us.

First of all I must comment on the staff that we encountered during our stay. 5 stars for service must go to Lyn who was duty manager during our stay - nothing was too much trouble for her even though she was very busy. Tom served us in the restaurant and was pleasant and very good at his job, making us feel that he really cared about our experience in the restaurant and the other member of staff was the gentleman who served in the restaurant and was also night porter. All of these staff were great and I would like to say a big thankyou to all of them for making our weekend extra special.

OK onto the actual hotel - the only thing that spoils the hotel somewhat is the fact that you have to walk though the restaurant in order to get to all the ground floor rooms. This is unfortunate but cannot be avoided due to the layout of the hotel. Our room was clean and well appointed but had no view whatsoever, however I have stayed here before and I would suggest that anyone staying ask for a garden room which has direct access onto the lawns which is lovely especially on summer nights.

The hotel is lovely surrounded by wonderful countryside views but I have to say it is the staff that are an absolute credit to the hotel -we will definitely be back

Room Tip: ask for a garden room

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your wonderful and kind review. Lynne is thrilled to be mentioned in person, and like many hotels the bedrooms are accessed through other areas of the hotel as most of our rooms are on the ground floor. The garden superior rooms do have stunning views with seating area and are also larger rooms compared to our standard double rooms. Which are equally nice but do not have the views or patio seating area. In the meantime thank you for taking the time to write your review.

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.
