Rooms at the back were very basic. Bathroom was fine. Light didn't work. Poor TV reception. No phone. Internet only in hotel not in rooms so accessing it was problematic out if opening times. Service and food were very good in hotel part. Waitresses and other staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well done.

My partner and I have visited this hotel twice recently as it proved a convenient stopping place on a long journey from England to the North of Scotland. This comfortable and reasonably priced hotel is situated close to the M74 arterial route to Scotland. We found the rooms clean, comfortable and well appointed.

Visited twice recently for some pub grub and Hadoop meal on both occasions. Menu has plenty to offer with the added bonus of smaller portions at a lower price - this is good if you decide you can mange three courses- as full size portion is rather large. The bar, although pretty busy with people eating meals, lacks atmosphere and...
