Ideally situated about a fifteen minute stroll into town the hotel enjoys commanding views over the Forth and the golf course. An old building (1800 hundreds?) which has been tastefully modernised by Mc Donald's while retaining most of its old world charm.
The open reception leads to relaxing lounges looking out to sea with comfortable seating and tranquility. I was though a little surprised to see a roaring fire in the main lounge on a lovely sunny weekend!
The room allocated to me was very well furnished with a very comfortable bed. Complimentary water and a tray of treats was provided. All the accessories expected of a four star hotel were present, hair dryer, iron, tea, coffee.
The bathroom was spotless although a little compact. I would imagine most people would have a problem fitting into the small bath! The usual toilet freebies were all present.
I personally found the restaurant service and food to be excellent. Polite attentive staff made sure that everything was to your satisfaction and were ready to discuss any requirements with you. Talking about staff I found each and everyone I encountered to be very polite and helpful.
In general I enjoyed an excellent weekend and came away feeling quite refreshed. I have already pencilled in a return to this hotel.
