Wee catch up lunch with a friend yesterday, looking for somewhere central. The service was excellent as was the meal and surroundings. I expected it to be much more expensive, great value for money and large portions. Was my first visit and wont be my last.

My pleasant experience with the Alona Hotel started long before my visit. I took a chance of getting this hotel using Hotwire and I was lucky to do so. I contacted the hotel and asked that if I could get into the same area of the hotel as on a previous stay - no problem. The room was clean and...

Location - This hotel is easy to find, right off the motorway and is a good base for visiting the central Scotland area. Carpark - I was dissapointed that there was nowhere for me to park on arrival. I was only lucky that after I reversed back out, (no way of turning either once youve drove to the end) someone...

Nice comfortable rooms. Well decorated and well maintained. Reasonably priced too for standard. Stayed here last July/August for a weekend wedding & reception. Staff were great! Nice place but a bit remote. Ideal for weddings or business stay overs.

Limited choice, with partially frozen sandwiches, poor service - very slow but plenty of staff. Tea served in tiny individual pots which were not warmed before filling therefore tea lukewarm. Nice view from dining room but very hot and stuffy with really cold draft from open windows.

The rooms in Alona are really modern and comfortable, the Hotel is in a great location. The food was just ok which would be ok if it wasn't very expensive.
