Lost a star for not allowing my review to on to the Facebook page. I booked my groups Christmas party here. The venue was lovely, the staff were amazing and attentive. And they all enjoyed the disco that went on til 1am. It was everything we wanted from a Christmas party except for the food. It would seem that vegetarian means 'not very hungry'. When my meal arrived everyone on my table automatically tried giving me food from their plates because my meal was so disappointingly small and they felt bad for me. It was embarrassing. Its the first time I've still been hungry after a 3 course meal. And for £38 a head it wasn't very good. The creme brulee, which is the dessert I always choose if available, was tasteless and the biscuit that came with it tasted stale. I actually left before 1am as I was hungry so I wanted to go find something to eat down Union Street. So a thumbs up for the Venue and the staff and a thumbs down for the food (vegetarian option anyway. Can't comment on the others).

Top gaff top food great friendly helpful efficient staff and top beer. Breakfast next day was spot on as well. Nice good sized bath. The bed was massive and super comfy, room was perfect temperature but there was the option of air con or to turn the radiator on. Parking was good and free and the hotel is in a great location.
