Not the same but still a nice place , as we had gluten free in our party we advised in advance and was well impressed ... The service was dignified and in a reasonable manner not rushed but prompt as nobody is wanting to be there. A good selection of sandwiches

Had a meal in the Carrick lodge it was nice no complaints but the hotel has lost its ambiance . It looked a little tired needing a spruce up . When the Murdoch's had the hotel the attention to detail was always top notch .A lick of paint in places and bring back this hotel to its former glory .

My family has eaten here on New Year's Day for at least five years. The food this year was as good as it's always been with a good selection. The service however was very poor. It took three attempts to get the right menus, we had to ask for bread three times, unused wine glasses weren't cleared away, main course...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are most disappointed to hear that the service you experienced on New Year's Day was not up to our usual high standard. We were considerably busier than we had anticipated and as a result unfortunately did not have the level of staffing that we ideally required. As you will...

Had a meal here on New Years Day. Everything was really good. Staff were excellent - efficient and attentive. Food was very enjoyable....the menu had something for all tastes. This is somewhere I would not hesitate to go back to, based on this visit.

Had lunch with my Daughter here. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent and portion sizes very good. I had pate and siloin steak and my Daughter, a vegetarian, had a fruit starter followed by a vegetable goulash. We very heartily reccomend this restaurant.

Only here for 1 night but we were made most welcome by all staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable overlooking hotel garden. There is an extensive dinner menu and also many items on a separate Gluten Free menu. Food was excellent including breakfast with a large choice of hot food. There is also a well stocked bar.
