Breakfast was super - the only thing that was missing was the black pudding and fresh fruit! We felt the evening meal was a bit regimental. 5.30pm was a bit early for us, but we... More

excellent hotel, staff could not do anymore for you, the location is excellent, the room was comfortable and very warm. The bed had crisp sheets and we had a good nights sleep. The bar staff was very polite and accommodating, the breakfast was delicious, and everything you could ask for. We have already recommended the hotel to family and friends,

Stayed here for four nights (as part of a coach tour from Scotland) and found this busy hotel ideal, for visiting all the local attractions! Rooms were compact but clean (although rather dated) as was the en-suite bathroom, in which the toilet seat was hanging off! Reported this to a member of staff on the first morning, but the seat...
