We have just returned from a Fri/Sat night stay. The first thing I want to say is that the staff make the hotel! Our meet and greet from Julia was lovely. Robert in the restaurant was so on the ball. He was very tuned into the guests and was so eager to please and ensure each guest was looked after....

Would not stay again, cant get wifi in the rooms, and hardly any tv channels, the pool and food were great though. The staff were excellent with what they have too work with. Barmaid was excellent. The hotel is too isolated for us but might suit others looking for peace and quiet.. It is in need of a good modern...

We really like this hotel - great location, nice staff, spacious rooms and good food. However our Hogmanay stay was disappointing. The buffet had been prepared and set out too early. The starters were fine as they were mostly cold but the mains (meant to be hot) were dried up and hard. The event had been advertised as not being...

Thank you for your recent review, which I was very surprised to read. At hogmanay we served over 80 meals and have only received very good comments regarding the food served. During dinner service the party is overseen by senior management who also check guest satisfaction. I am very disappointed you did not advise of your complaint at this point...
