Booked a weekend stay for my husband's birthday... the hotel markets itself as a luxury hotel but it falls well short. A good average standard is on offer but there was no feel of matching up to the luxury label they advertised. The cooked breakfast was to a good standard but there was no menu as such, just a large...

Could not fault the staff or the locals as both made us extremely welcome. Food and beer were good and the room outstanding. Had we not had things planned we would have happily stayed in the bar and chewed the fat with the wonderful folk of Wark. Would certainly go again and recommend it to everyone

We stayed for another wonderful night in this cosy, welcoming hotel. You cannot fault the accommodation or the food, our evening meal was excellent and breakfast perfect. Just wish you were closer to us as we would certainly visit more often. Thank you for making our stay so special! Amanda U
