Can't fault this hotel. It has an awesome menu. I had the tastiest, cheesiest lasagne and can not wait to come back to Scotland and visit this establishment again. It also has a great whisky bar and shop. The service is great here and the meals were fresh and quick.

From the moment you enter the premises you are treated to a high standard of customer care with food/drink of exceptional quality. Excellent selection of gin and malt whiskies available that put most places in a big city to shame. A hidden gem and highly recommend a stay if in the area.
