        The food and in particular the breakfast was very good using an excellent local butcher Houston for the Haggis.

        The hotel charged for our dog but Booked.net states that no pet charges apply at this hotel. We asked to not pay the pet charge because of this, but staff insisted. Beware. Also dogs are not allowed in the dining rooms or bar (if charging for a pet we feel this is unfair). Further the decor in the room was dated and the room was not hoovered during our stay. No one, as staff suggested, has been in contact in the last week to refund us the pet charge so we feel we must leave this review.

        Reception staff were very warm and welcoming, made us feel comfortable from the beginning. Great collection of malt whiskey in the bar!!, and the breakfast was excellent.

        Matresses were pretty hard and uncomfortable.

        Quiet, while close to the town centre amenities.

        The location in relation to my business interest

        The single bed...I wanted double for single occupancy. The cleanliness...too much dust and the shower tray backed-up.

      • Single

        Water was far too hot and the shower was unuseable (control did not work)

        The duty Manageress I found to be friendly and approachable, as were the rest of the staff

        I was disappointed with the hotel owners attitude. I had a problem with my shower, (it was not working) on the Thursday morning. She offerred me a discount on the room of 10% (£6.66) as a gesture of goodwill which I felt was inappropriate as it was a key feature of the room facilities. She reluctantly agreed a higher discount, after condemming me for my attitude, but her manner throughout the process was no credit to her and gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I was somehow supposed to be sympathetic to her as she had had a cold shower that morning. I was not particularly enamoured as I had not had any.

        We were very pleased with the attitude of the staff who were very friendly and welcoming, particularly the barman, John, who was very efficient in a unobtrusive way. Our room was very comfortable with all the facilities which you would expect. The food on our first night was excellent, as were the breakfasts. Unfortunately the food was a little disappointing on our second night as was the service on this evening, perhaps because John was not on duty.
