We have been for a meal three times and it was always fantastic. I especially recommend the high tea - it was amazing! The prices are exceptionally good value and the service is very good. Food is absolutely delicious and there is a fantastic variety.

We went for a high tea.The food was really good. The food arrived quite promptly. My only dislike was the interior of the place. It is very dated and needs upgraded. Also there is far too much clutter in the restaurant on the windowsills etc which makes the place look untidy and cluttered. Also i think with all the clutter...

We stopped off for a drink while walking about the picturesque village of Dysart as we noticed that the hotel had been given a fresh coat of paint outside. Venturing in we saw that the inside had been remodelled also and looked quite nice. I ordered a pint of Belhaven and found it tasted bad so mentioned it to the...

We had high tea in the function room at the rear of the hotel. The food was not cordon bleu but tasty enough (risotto was not risotto - some other kind of rice in a watery cream sauce with frozen veg) and kids go free with every paying adult, so you can't complain. Prices were also very reasonable, it's a...

I was somewhat surprised to read two recent (not dated so I don't know how "recent") bad reviews of this hotel. Conditions have obviously improved substantially by the time of my visit and I did not recognise any of the faults mentioned in these reviews. My room was warm, clean and well provisioned and I experienced no problems during my...

We had our wedding here at the begging of September. The day was fantastic and could not have went better. The staff were on top form and helped us with anything we needed. We stayed overnight that night and the room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was so comfy! We enjoyed breakfast in the morning before checking out. We...

This hotel has major issues, a strange atmosphere and aggressive, potentially violent management. Do not stay, eat or book your wedding there. You will regret it. Please check the (somewhat flattering!!) photos I have provided. Issues include Damp/leaks Mold spores (Mold spore is poisonous and dangerous for asthma and bronchial problem sufferers) Dirty carpets Arcing within 13amp sockets. Plaster dust...
