My recent stay at the Waverley was a lovely experience. The family owned hotel was so welcoming and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The rooms are lovely and comfy and the breakfast was 2nd to none. The menu was so extensive and what I had was delicious. The fact that the restaurant serving and bar were packed...

The rooms are very dated. The bed i slept in was so uncomfortable felt like the springs were going to go through the bed. The food was good. The wimdows were rattlingduring the night. There was no place in the bathroom to put any toiletries. I most definitely wont be recommending this to anyone to stay at!

A big thank you to all at the Waverley Hotel. We had a family gathering to celebrate an 18th Birthday. We had a dining room all to ourselves and because we pre-ordered the food, it arrived a few minutes after we arrived. The food was hot, well prepared and there was plenty of it. The staff were efficient and friendly....

I joined family here for a post funeral gathering. The friendliness of the staff serving an array of home cooked food (soup and sandwiches accompanied by trays of 'proper' chips and tea/coffee set the scene. We were afforded time to chat and exchange stories celebrating our lost member's life and getting to know each other better and meet the new...

Just had an overnight with family - would recommend. A little bit tired but lovely and clean. Staff were great especially the older lady doing breakfast. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had breakfast, both meals were outstanding, big portions and good value. Would definitely go back.
