My husband & I spent our Golden Wedding here from 9-11 September and had a wonderful time. The room was very comfortable with lovely views over the Forth and the staff were very helpful and courteous. The food was amazing too and we were very luck with the weather.

This place is amazing! The food is great, wonderful breakfast, loads of choice. The staff is so friendly. Also the little extras like bottled water and shortbread biscuits really add to the room. We had a lovely room. Also its very near the high street and the water. We would highly recommend it!

As hoteliers we understand how hotels work, this one does little wrong. My initial contact Chloe is a charming girl, eager to help and very professional, sorted us out with a lovely room, great view and well appointed. All of the staff are a credit to the bank and its owners. Do not expect fine dining here but excellent pub...

We were lucky enough to stay in a stunning room 19A which had an amazing bathroom and views across the bay and harbour. The room was massive with intricate coving and feature fireplace as well as a big bay window to relax in the leather tub chairs and chill. The bed was huge and very comfortable with eygptian cotton bedding....

Best Meal I have had recently. Four of us booked in for dinner last weekend. Menu was very good ample choice. We all ordered different meals they were so good we ended up tasting each other's. Very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but book as it is usually busy at weekends.
