Garth Hotel & Restaurant
Reviewed 23 March 2014

A lovely experience from start to finish. Arrived after completing the Dava way to a lovely welcome, comfortable room and hot bath. Bedrooms was compact but well proportioned. Bathroom was spotless and exceptionally warm with bath and power shower above. Bed was comfortable with crisp clean sheets. Cracking little bar in the hotel with well proved libations. Guest sitting room is a step out of the Victorian era with Wally Dogs on the mantlepiece and a roaring fire. Meals were high quality and service throughout a treat. I shall certainly return to this hotel.

We stayed last week for a last minute weekend getaway. It was such a lovely hotel, the staff were so welcoming on arrival and showed us straight to our room. The room was lovely and spacious with modern decor and a lovely comfy bed.

The restaurant is so fantastic, We cannot praise it enough. Everything about it was perfect! Especially the venison... delicious. Don't forget to try some of the whiskies, the manager recommended some to try and the best way to try it.

Overall it was a perfect weekend and whilst there isn't a lot to do in the town, it is definitely worth staying at the Garth. We have booked to go back at New Years! Cannot wait. Thank you

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of February, we enjoyed everything about this hotel especially the attached restaurant. We stayed on a Dinner, bed and breakfast basis and could not fault the food in the restaurant. The log fire in the lounge is very appealing after a day's skiing. The hotel staff are very friendly and polite . We would stay again.

I arrived here on limited funds. A single room in £47.50 however i only had £50 on me and still did not have any dinner. I explained this to the hotel staff who accepted only £40 for the night. Plus breakfast such a kind gesture and much appriechiated. Will stay here again. Room very comfy and clean. Staff very helpful and kind. Lovely wee hotel.

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely little hotel culminating on Burns Night on January 25th. We found the Garth Hotel great value for money as well as being comfortable, warm and cosy with a lovely log fire in the guest lounge. We ate in the restaurant each night and the food was excellent. We were made to feel at home by the friendly and welcoming staff. They were attentive to all our needs and made us at once relaxed and at home.

The Burns night dinner and ceilidh was wonderful - a night we will remember for a long time.

I would recommend the Garth to anyone and we shall certainly be looking to return at some point in the future.

Arrived t the Grath hotel on Hogmanay! To a very warm welcome from all staff. Taken to a lovely cozy room clean and well decorated. Went down for the Hogmanay dinner and dance. Well worth every penny the food was out of this world. The sirloin and venison steak for main was lovely and the trio desert if you like deserts was out of this world. The fireworks in Granton were worth the trip on its own.
Breakfast next morning as good quality and hot.
We will be back.

The booking process for the Garth was easy and the staff were efficient and extremely helpful. We booked for the festive season, our room was very warm and comfortable although our 'double' bed which was huge was in fact two singles and it was a battle keeping the sheets and duvet in check! We brought our two dogs and we pre arranged a room close to the fire escape which was a godsend with our old dog. The food was excellent having said that I was a little disappointed with the quality of my Christmas day dinner I had the turkey which was a lukewarm and not much white meat, the chestnut stuffing was tasteless and awful. I've had much better traditional Christmas dinners. Our biggest disappointment was the closure of the bar on Christmas Day at 6.30 there was no mention of this when I booked for Christmas or we may have reconsidered. Sandwiches were provided (at our cost) and we could order drinks to take to our room. Whereas we appreciate the staff like to have some semblance of a Christmas we were left with no real alternative but to sit in our room and watch T.V which was what we had come away to avoid! There was a wee bit of confusion with the bill at the end of the stay but we sorted it out without any unpleasantness and to a mutually agreeable outcome. The staff without exception were very pleasant. All in all a very enjoyable visit would definitely stay again but would have reservations booking for Christmas.

Room Tip: For those with dogs ask for a room near the fire escape
