I ran a conference here a few years ago. It was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Great food. Lovely rooms. Fantastic feedback from delegates. Really nice family run hotel. Bit shocked by the poor feedback here. Was recommending it for my sister to stay there so just looked it up. Not my experience at all

I got married here last May.... one word of advise don't book your wedding here unless you want your wedding day ruined and zero apologises for it. Lack of staff, lack of organisation, lack of communication, lack of sincerity, basically everything lacked in something! We complained but got nothing back. Will never return nor recommend. All I can say now...

The room is nice with some typical British accent. Unfortunately, they haven’t put the heater on before I arrived (around 10 pm) and needed to wait more than one hour to take a shower. And the water is not warm enough. The employees are nice, the breakfast average but the Wifi is a nightmare! A stupid system called Sky Wifi...

Stayed two nights for work. Very convenient location, great room, all that you need at a reasonable cost. Ate in the hotel both nights, lovely meal first night and good service but the second night service was slow, although not busy, and I am a patient man. I ordered chips instead of mash but my meal came with mash. What...

A good place for a business meeting, nothing complicated just a couple of rounds of tea and coffee. Easy parking out front. The service at the bar was good, orders placed our drinks were brought to the table.

The hotel hosted our Burns night party this year and did a wonderful job. The good was excellent and the service from all of the team friendly effective and engaging. We are already looking forward to running next year's event.

Came here with some friends for afternoon tea. I've had it at a few places now and this was definitely one of the best! Loads of food, two rounds of tea and the option to take a doggy bag home after! What is not to love? :) Would recommend going. Very well priced and it was busy in there, staff...

We stayed at the Royal as part of a wedding party - held elsewhere - we had 3 rooms. Whilst the rooms were nice and beds comfortable, two of the rooms were really cold and one smelt strongly of sewage. We got to our rooms past 11 pm and tired, so not inclined to raise these issues with night staff....

Stayed here for one night with a weeding party. On arrival no parking available, car park very small, was told that there is parking in roads either side of hotel, there was but permit holders only! My husband drove round for 20 minutes looking for parking. When booking in was asked to pay even though the room had already been...
