A disappointing experience from start to finish. Not the friendly scottish welcome we expected. Room was cold, staff lacked warmth and congeniality. A definite lack of training was apparent not only in their manner but the lack of uniform and name badge made it difficult to discern staff from guests. Management, staff and decor are in dire need of a...

I stayed here with my husband and 20 month old daughter for 2 nights. The hotel is filled with quirky antiques and other interesting things. The house is a typical victorian house and has a very old charm. Our room was very comfortable and we were very happy to learn that our baby monitor worked in all the social areas...

We stayed here with friends for 1 night as we were attending a wedding nearby and were pleased to read such good trip advisor reviews. Unfortunately we cannot understand a lot of these great reviews and were very disappointed. On arrival we thought the hotel was quirky with lots of random antiques along the corriders (some may say its a...

We needed a one night stop while travelling back from holiday further north. Abbotsford was easy to find, friendly, relatively cheap with the old racecourse open space just across the road for the dog, and simple good food for us. Dog was allowed in the bar but not the dining room so we ate in the bar. Very busy bar...

Having been to the Abbotsford to ther people's functions over the past 30 or so years, had no other thought as to who to go to to host my 50th. The room was immaculate and a lot of thought went in from Paul, the owner, to ensure that the layout suited the 90 people attending. (It can be flexible for...

We've just stayed there for a week. Comfortable, decent-sized rooms. Good food. Lots of parking. Overlooking a park on one of the best roads in town. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Was slightly dubious about the three-star Scottish Tourist Board rating - not always good - but this one was absolutely fine. Better than much more expensive ones I suspect.

Hotel is the local pub and was very noisy till the early hours for 2 nights with vandals running amok in the car park one night. Catalogue of issues with faulty shower, water leaking on bathroom floor, heavy entrance door which was below our room slammed shut over well over times, shaking the room till 1.00 am. Maintenance seemed to...

I have been coming here on and off for nearly 37 years!! Been a family run hotel all that time. Most recent was with my brother Arnie. Good beer, fine atmosphere, a proper pub and also fine restaurant and venue. Also from time to time stayed in the hotel. Great place and long overdue the 5 stars from me.

Celebrated my 'hauf- hunner' (50th birthday) in style last weekend at the Abbotsford. The venue was perfect - despite the unseasonable rain, the function room was light, airy and summery due to the huge atrium type roof. The eclectic mix of paraphernalia around the original parts of the room is a fascinating talking point in itself. The manager, Pau Hunter,...
