        • The location is just outside the train station and a good restaurant in the hotel and a choice other places to eat nearby. Staff are very attentive and helpful, the rooms are now well decked out and comfrotable.

          Not great value for money, reception not very friendly and mattress hasn't been changed out since WWII.

        • In the hub of the town within easy reach of shops and the hotel restaurant serves delicious food and as a resident you get a discount. The staff are friendly, the bedrooms are very clean and comfortable, the meals at The Ash are most handy.

          Very tired decor in room and breakfast was very good I choose as was next to the railway station.

        • Great value convenient location and superb stay. Reception staff more than accommodating, the receptionist was friendly and helpful, facilities in the room was very good. Food in the restaurant was excellent.

          A lovely old hotel and the beds are elderly and uncomfortable.

        • Great location fantastic value, handy for the station and nice restaurants within walking distance. Overall, i liked this hotel, friendly staff and the rooms are spacious and well presented.

          An early morning shower in this freezer is not advisable.

        • Great location, and great rooms, very convenient for the station. The charges are very reasonable and staff are very friendly. The en suite showers are among the best, excellent food in the Ash restaurant.

          Hotel was very busy, buffet style and included good old Scottish oat porridge, all reception could offer me was very limited information. Plus the bed was a little uncomfortable, the Breakfast was COLD and was clearly not updated as the morning wore on.

        • Location was very good and most of the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The lobby and check in was great, room was large enough and clean. The breakfast was not bad and our dinner was excellent.

          Slightly dated in places and pretty poor service. One tiny window up in the eaves, bar too expensive and hard pillows. Rather mediocre restaurant and the receptionist on my first arrival was not especially welcoming.

        • The location is excellent and the hotel has a terrific ambience and the staircase is most beautiful. The rates are reasonable, staff very attentive to guests, even late at night and our rooms have always been large. The toilets downstairs are huge.

          Public areas are a little worn and dated, breakfast is a joke that fawlty towers would be proud of, the quality of food is completely unsatisfactory for costs. Window down to the bare wood and the heated towel rail could not be turned down. The restaurant is very good and not at all pricey.

        • The atrium coffee bar area was especially nice you could just sit back, the hotel had changed hands and has lost a lot of that traditional Scottishness, the staff were very polite and smartly dressed. The room etc was very clean, the hot breakfast buffet was inedible.

          Very slow service 4 hours for an evening meal.
