Been a couple of times for lunch and dinner and the food is always very tasty. The only thing that lets it down is the service which on each occasion has been very slow and on our last visit the guy serving us was so disinterested we might as well of served ourselves. You can't however take away the beautiful... More

We met with friends for lunch,they had been before and were well pleased with the service and ambiance, so were we. They were fairly busy and there was a wedding happening in the garden, so it was interesting to watch the comings and goings.

Didn't stay over but had dinner, which was excellent. The food was of excellent quality and not overly priced. Menu is directed towards meat locally sourced and was prepared and served very elegantly. But the location and views are what really sells this place, over looking the River Dee and watching the salmon jump are what you really want. I... More

I'd booked the garden room 35 in the annex,which is practically on the bank of the river, because I have difficulty with gradients and stairs. The path down to the door was on a steep slope covered with loose chippings. The tiled floor in the room was very slippery, like glass. The interior of the hotel has steps and stairs... More

Sunday lunch with friends on Father's Day Restaurants were very busy but service good under what were pressure conditions for the staff. Lunch was of excellent quality and quite efficiently served, although wines were very late in arriving at the table. Should have been presented much earlier as they had been ordered in advance of food order
