Very friendly service and delicious (and good value) food. Currently the hotel is operating a buffet-style dinner. Food was very good quality (curry was especially tasty) and plentiful. Moreover the dining area has been decorated very tastefully, ensuring that there is a great atmosphere. Excellent!
We have never been to Alyth before. Post lockdown, didn't quite know what to expect. But found a wee gen in this hotel and bar. Dog friendly, lovely courtyard at the back of the bar. Friendly staff, scrupulously clean we had a drink in the afternoon and decided.to come back for dinner at night. Fantastic.value buffet , dad's pakora is simply brilliant as are the homemade sauces and pickles. Vurrys are lovely , euro dishes as well. Prices at the bar are enlightening for someone.used to paying City centre bar tabs ! Stuart , his family and team have only been here for a short.time but they seem to have a great balance between local.custom and visitors. We will definitely be back !
We were celebrating my partner’s 60th birthday and had booked a lodge a few miles away and had decided to stop here for dinner on the way, it was new owner’s and the menu offered two main meals for £15 which is pretty good value for a hotel, there were 4 of us, we had one soup and a sharing platter for the other three to start, this was amazing and very filling, for our mains we had two fish, one mac’n’cheese and a spicy chicken burger, this took a while to arrive as they were short in the kitchen (as it turned out a good thing), this was making us late for the lodge. I rang the lodge to explain we were going to be late only to be told they had no record of our booking! When Stuart the manager came to apologise for dinner being delayed we asked about the possibility of two rooms for the night as we didn’t want to return to Glasgow in the pitch black, he sorted out two rooms for us and explained they had a nice outdoor bar area which was under cover and had a big log fire so we could have a little celebratory birthday drink, long story short we ended up staying for 4 nights (our original intention at the lodge), Stuart, Lewis and the team made us feel very special and bent over backwards to make our stay special, we will definitely be back in future as Alyth itself is a lovely village with lots of walks and other things to do, the rooms are all in the process of being refurbished, the two rooms we had were next door to each at the front of the hotel overlooking the burn and bridge to the village square, the showers were fantastic and a good size as were the rooms, what could have been a spoiled few days away were rescued and my partner was very, very happy with her birthday trip away.…
I must say what a good experience this was. I’m a restaurant manager and I’m in the trade also. Came in as a table of 3 and each had a 3 course meal. There was a quiz going on at the same time and this did not ruin our evening In the slightest. Unfortunately the rib eye wasn’t available but a rump was offered instead and my mum said it was cooked to perfection. My dad had fish and chips. And I had the enchiladas brilliant portion sizes. All in all good decor and good service. Well done alyth hotel as I understand it is new owners. Only marking down due to my dad saying some of his chips were blanched instead of triple cooked and rendered soggy.
Small town hotels can go one of two ways, bit crap or a treasure. The Alyth Hotel is a real treasure. Great food, lovely setting and charming staff. A hotel that is punching above its weight. Interesting menu laced with quality. Well done.
