Taking an 'Easy Breaks Deal', Overall value very good. The Best thing overall was the dinner on the first night Didn't expect the 5* treatment for dinner, I believe the restaurant has 2 Michelin stars the meal was fantastic and the next mornings breakfast was just as good. Breakfast can either be buffet or silver service depending on how busy...

Stayed here three nights. The room lovely and comfortable. Housekeeping staff attentive. The reception staff very friendly and helpful. Coal fire in residents lounge made it nice and relaxing. Leisure facilities good. Only downside was the bar service, a little slow and the lighting in the bar a bit too dull for my taste.

My daughter and I had a lovely overnight spa stay here. A very good evening meal in a warm, pleasant restaurant and a plentiful breakfast with all the usual suspects. Disappointed in what was supposed to be a deluxe room. It was totally lacking in any appeal and two large stains on the carpet didn't help. A little bit of...

This is a great hotel in a great location. Check in staff were friendly and the process was quick and painless. Rooms were clean and tidy. No mini bar which is always disappointing. Breakfast was good and the room service was excellent.

Nearest pub, Witherspoon's at bottom of...

We spent two nights on bed and breakfast basis with dinner on the first night. We found the hotel very comfortable. I really liked the bucket chairs in our room, rather than having to sit on the bed. It was originally an old school, which added to its charm. It The food was excellent, both breakfast and dinner. The gym...

Impressed by our first visit to this hotel. The building was the old High School, cloisters and all, and the interior reflects the former use e.g. The Headmaster's Study bar. All staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, if a little tired (room décor, and bathroom facilities) and beds are comfortable. The Scottish breakfast was...

Been here a few times before lovely staff very good location but not if for you struggle with hills. The staff are all very helpful, food excellent. The hotel is in need of a little moderation and refurbishment especially the bathrooms, in saying it is still a very good hotel and will certainly go back for a weekend chill out.
