The hotel is situated just off the M74 (literally 10 seconds drive back on to the southbound motorway). Rooms are clean and simple. The shower was excellent – double size and powerful. The television reception wasn’t amazing, and the Wi-Fi was intermittent, however there was 4G, so it was no issue. Although close to the motorway, I didn’t hear it...

Used this place as a half way house en route to Inverness. Friendly reception, basic but comfy room, decent food, good service overall, wouldn't want more than a night here but would definitely use it again if I was passing.
