Stayed a night in this hotel and found the room reasonably comfortable, the staff very polite and helpful, the breakfast more than adequate and the price reasonable by local standards for the time of year (early July). Overall, pretty satisfied (although the WiFi covered a very restricted area - did not extend to dining room)

Room was clean and spacious, with a lift for those with unwieldy bags. Breakfast had a selection of local black pudding, haggis, sausages and other bits and pieces so something for everyone. Just across the road from the train station so very convenient for catching the coach or train to other parts of Scotland.

Great friendly service from the receptionist, Lucy, that dealt with me turning up late in the evening and totally out-of-the blue enquiring as to whether they'd a room for that night for myself, wife and 3 year old daughter. Lovely spotless twin room that they'd put an extra bed in for the three of us. Excellent buffet breakfast with plenty...

In February this year I stayed here and wrote a critical review regarding the problems I had with the menu and my Lactose Intolerance. I am now extremely embarrassed as the manager subsequently telephoned me to apologise and to give me some extremely good advice about how to get what I want in the future at any hotel. I should...

This hotel was in a superb location, right in the middle of the town. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. However the decor of the hotel was dated and quite shabby in places and in need of some re-decoration. Availability of wifi was disappointing as you can only get it in the common areas and...

Only popped in for a pre night-sleeper pint but was most impressed by the staff all friendly and very helpful. The place is a big old Victorian type station hotel (just over the road) the food looks good and the rates the norm.
