My husband booked this hotel so I really was not sure what it would be like but I was in for a nice surprise. Apart from the not-so-welcoming reception we got when we arrived, everything was excellent. A very bright, airy, boutique hotel situated in a peaceful location on the edge of Maidens. Our room was very spacious with a big bathroom. We managed, just, to get a restaurant booking on arrival (as we had not pre booked) and the food and service was excellent. Later when we came back to the hotel, we had a night cap with the very friendly staff. I would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back!

This is the 4th time I have stayed at Wildings. The staff treat me like one of the family.The rooms are generous and very clean. Start the day off with a full Scottish breakfast.Very tasty.
The evening menu is excellent with generous portions.If you like a pint of beer I recommend the Belhaven. Hits the spot after a round of golf.I will be going back in September Mervyn.

Room Tip: Try to book a room overlooking the Harbour.I think it is rooms 1 to 6

This was a birthday celebration and our umpteenth visit to Wilding's. As ever, the food and service were very good and superb value.

One tiny point: the menu describes the bar wide selection of "Malt Whisky's" (twice). If Wilding's needs a proof-reader, I'm very good value, too.

Stayed overnight with friends, a late, late christmas present. We had all been here a few years previously & loved the food but not the rooms. Times have changed & the rooms are all clean, smart, spacious & modern. Very peaceful nights sleep. Slight layout problems in bathroom, only place for hand towel is on heated towel rail which was over the toilet roll holder,but we wouldn't knock it down for that. Staff at check in very pleasant & spent lovely time waiting for dinner time. Dinner was extremely busy, Saturday night, & were starting to panic that tables would be full to bursting. No need to panic as busy as it was, the restaurant is surprising large. Dinner - bottle of wine which was pre ordered was not on table as expected; service was at best patchy; had to ask several times for another bottle of wine, had to ask for menus for dessert, had to ask for someone to take order, you get the picture. Basically a self service restaurant as we had to attract attention & service most of the time to get fed. The annoying thing was, we were at a table right next to the door closest to the main walkthrough area, not hidden away in a corner. We did complain the following morning but an apology & excuse of being busy didn't fully wash. We think that the staff, mostly young, aren't trained fully as we noticed during the meal that some seemed to be working at full pelt & others coasting through the night. However, from starters to desserts, we all had great food with top marks to the sea bream & king scallops. Breakfast a bit hit & miss. Tea/coffee before fruit juice minor complaint. Overall though, would we return. Yes, the food overshadows more or less everything else. Good sleep & great food, just the staff to train & a top class establishment would be overlooking a small pretty harbour.

We were with a group of friends for a wedding and had booked a number of tables for the evening, which ended up being at opposite ends of the Restaurant. We were told to "sit down and stop laughing as we were upsetting the rest of his guests!" We were all gobsmacked.

Obviously takes himself far too seriously.

The food on the other hand was beautifull.

Try the Malin Court Restaurant, only around the corner from the Wildings.

Food is equally as fantastic, lovely staff and a relaxed atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try Malin Court.
