Do not eat at the restaurant if you are pregnant. Vomited for a few hours after dinner. You can see the chef is trying hard to arrange the food nicely on the plate but the ingredients and the seasoning are not 4 stars.

A great overnight stay en route to northern Scotland. Usual 4* things - comfy bed, beautiful bedding and pillows, clean room and bathroom, quality and choice for breakfast. Corridors had carpet and soft close doors to keep the noise down; although all was quiet the night we stayed. It was close enough to the motorway junction to be very convenient...

The events venue was beautiful once everything was in place, the lit candlabras added the final finishing touch. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, meal was very good. We stayed over & the hotel facilities were lovely as was the breakfast, would definitely recommend it.

The staff were very welcoming, and polite throughout our whole stay. The bedroom that we were allocated, was a little on the small side but very clean. The food was a above average, but was just missing a little something.
