Family group attended university graduation, booked Marcliffe on word of mouth recommendation. Two suites, dinner and breakfast for reasonable price. Food was excellent, accommodating range of tastes and ages. Modern Scottish, finest ingredients, seafood superb. Suites were delightful, hotel itself has interesting history. A wonderful experience, and a pleasant change from bland chain hotels. Idiosyncratic in the best possible way.

The bathroom is large with good quality products. Fresh fruit was supplied each day and there were some complimentary snacks in the mini bar...

It is classy, but relaxed. Beautifully furnished throughout with rooms in which everything had been thought of ( my wife loved the robes), the...
