Location is excellent. The cooked Breakfast is pretty good with the portion size more than adequate. The owner, Mark, was very friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. It was quite hot but that was easily solvable as the radiator had its own thermostat. Only complaint was the bathroom was quite compact but as I...

Mark provides a warm welcome and goes out of his way to be helpful. He provided a number of good recommendations for real ale pubs to visit during our stay. Rooms are individual and cosy. If you are a light sleeper you might want to ask for a rear room as the road is busy. Overall good value for money.

From the outside it looks a bit down at heel and, to be honest, it could do with a wee freshen up. But this is more than made up for by Mark, the proprietor. Very attentive, without being smarmy. He helped me out with an umbrella and a shoe-shine kit - thanks Mark. Very good breakfast (not a patch on...

We were recommended the Gillygate for food. We weren't disappointed! Great food, I had the pie which was very tasty and filling, my wife had the fish pie, again very nice and filling! We managed puddings afterwards. If you enjoy fish & chips, again well worth it! Great staff, nice atmosphere.
