We were welcomed by friendly staff in what at first appearance seems to be a well presented hotel. However, the room was pokey, with paper-thin walls and an uncomfortable bed, and appears to have been last decorated in the 80s. The food was fine, but with no vegetraian options except Quorn, this is a blast from the past.

phildurr, Owner at Lauriston Hotel, responded to this review

It is such a shame that you did not read the terms of the voucher deal before purchasing. It does clearly state a maximum of 2 vouvhers per table of 4 people, so why you would phone up, ask to book a table for more than the stated numbers is puzzling. Then post such a reveiw on tripadvisor blaming us...

Recently stayed at the Lauriston before an early morning ferry crossing. We arrived really late but called ahead and the night porter was ready for us and helped us unload in the dark. Quick summary: comfy beds, huge bedroom (Room 5) with sea views, friendly staff. Why only a 3? Rooms were a little old fashioned, hot water in the...

My wife and I spent a night at the Lauriston Hotel and were impressed by the welcome at reception, the room was very pleasant with a lovely sea view. The en suite was a bit on the tight side and the shower pressure and temperature adjustment left a lot to be desired. The lounge area and dining room were very...

Didn't stay here but visited for lunch on a deal. The choice was outstanding and the portions more than ample. The restaurant staff were very attentive and deserve a big thanks. The whole place felt very homely and as a regular visitor to the area I had sadly overlooked the Lauriston, but now I know the standards I'll certainly be...
