This was our first hotel in Scotland, and my husband and I absolutely loved it! The atmosphere is just splendid. Very cozy and just wants you make to enjoy a long dinner and relax. We stayed here with our two children. The room was plenty large with a good sized bathroom. We had a riverview room, which was very nice and I would recommend. One other reviewer mentioned the soft beds, and that would be my only complaint.
The restaurant staff was very friendly, breakfast buffet had a nice selection. The fireplaces in the restaurant are huge and they actually burn coal! There are buckets of coal on the hearths. We also loved walking along the river and the trails that connect off from there. We fed the ducks and enjoyed talking to other folks walking along the river. We would definitely return here.
