Thank you for your review. Your right! All of our family rooms have a shower over the bath to assist in bathing young ones, which, I believe makes life a little easier. We have updated many components of the bathroom but we are restricted as to how far we go. We also have a newish 2 bedroom apartment ideal for...

One thing I like and enjoy about staying at the John Pirie is that the accommodation is set back from the road and if your lucky enough to get a room 'out the back' there is almost no road noise at all. The rooms area always clean and the staff friendly and accommodating.

A great place to stay. Room was very clean, and the layout left plenty of space. The decor was smart, and the facilities were excellant. We would stay there again without hesitation, and would recomend it to family and friends. No traffic noise could be heard from our room.

Food was over priced. The blue cheese tart was bland. Chicken schnitzel came with very small portions of guacamole and sour cream, and loads of hot chips, which meant it was too dry. Table service tried to be upmarket but it had a casual decor. Strange combination. Desserts were tasty, but again overpriced.

I have stayed here before, but not for a number of years. As before, it was a very comfortable experience. The room and the restaurant were of excellent quality and all the staff were pleasant and helpful.
