Good atmosphere. Efficient friendly staff and lovely food Starter was a bit skimpy but main meal made up for it. Didn't have a dessert but there was a good choice. Prices looked about average for this area

Stayed overnight. A lovely place. Very clean and well presented. The staff can't do enough for you. The Italian restaurant on site serves great food. The room was newly decorated to a high standard. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Great for a night out and with the late opening times it is great for the ferry to have this to save us all going up town for a big night out. Just around from khans as well. If you are staying in the hotel upstairs, be aware that it will be very noisy but that's a given since it's...

Hi Gemma I am sorry to hear your stay on Xmas night was not a good experience for you. We do state clearly on our web site that the main lounge and bar are quite lively on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so should you require a more sedate weekend, please let our staff know to arrange a room outwith the...

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We received a cold welcome, very poor service and there was no ambience to speak of. There was a very annoying waitress who kept banging the plates and cups down on the tables, and kept yelling out across the room. We will never return.

Went for a bar meal in the early evening. Good choice of eats and gluten free options. Also half portions available up to a certain time. Service was excellent, very efficient and friendly. Food was good and will go back again. Only thing I wasn't so keen on was the lighting, which was cold and stark. Apart from that was...

Good location for Squash club. Staff very friendly. We had to go outside to get our room. Very noisy as right on street. Room was clean . No biscuits tho with tea or coffee in room. Good food. Advise you to book Italian restaurant if you want to eat there.

Having visited here for my mother in laws birthday, I could not fault this place. The staff were friendly and obliging and very good with our boisterous 2 boys. The food was of a good standard and service was quick. The steak pie was very good and a winner in my view. Sharing platter starter was also a winner. Overall...
