Somebody forgot to write my booking in the book, luckily they had one room left which turned out to be OK. Location is good for Bathgate, virtually right in the centre of town, this proved ideal for there were no meals available at the time of my stay. The Continental breakfast was virtually non-existent, a loaf of bread, toaster, jam...

Not very welcoming for family's with young children!! We had to walk through the FULL bar to get upstairs to our rooms after returning from the Edinburgh tattoo. Rooms were very basic, non of us slept well due to springs coming out in mattress, beds being too small and the noise from the pub downstairs till 1.30am!! Breakfast was ok,...

Typical pub-style lodging. Parking lot in rear (no charge, but first come, first served...filled up as the day went on). Room was billed as coming with "full breakfast," but it was coffee/tea, toast, yogurt, and cereals, nothing cooked. OK. Also came with "free wi-fi," but the wi-fi doesn't extend past the bar downstairs. Once you turn the corner to go...

The staff are very friendly and the bedrooms had been recently re-furbished with very well appointed en suite bathrooms. The beds were most comfortable, the linen was clean as were the rooms on arrival. Although there were no bedside tables and lamps and the light switch was near the door away from the beds which was inconvenient and hazardous to...

My daughter and I stayed here whilst attending a swimming gala. Our room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. Even though we stayed over Friday and Saturday night and the bar was full, we had a good, quiet night's sleep. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I stayed for one night as I was attending a wedding at The Vue which is a short drive away. I was pleasantly surprised at how modern and clean my room was (apparently some have been updated and I had a 'new' room so might be worth asking for one of these!). The staff were more than helpful and I...

Stayed here for one night 7th Nov whilst visiting friends in the area, was presently surprised as the previous reviews I'd read were not good. Check in super fast & shown to our room which had brand new crisp white sheets on the beds. Room & bathroom were dust free & spotless clean. Not really our type of place to...

Was a very unpleasant experience hotel listed as family friendly this was not the case.
