Reviewed yesterday NEW

the staff were most pleasant, the food was superb and really well presented and the bar prices very reasonable. The free car parking makes a tremendous difference. I would throughly recommend the spicy chicken strips, the steak and sausage pie. The full breakfast was fabulous with the locally sourced black pudding and haggis being the icing on the cake

Stayed Friday to Sunday in February. Great location on the Esplanade with plenty of free parking. Only a short stroll to the town centre. Nice hotel, great staff and great food. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Staff were very friendly, helpful with reception making you feel at home immediately on arrival. The food was excellent. Best steak I've had for a while. The hotel is easily accessible by road or rail and is a good spot for exploring the lovely surrounding area. Hope

The bedroom we were given was sea facing, level with the car park, and was a good sized room. It contained the usual tea and coffee making facilities, but it also contained and iron...

Visited the hotel to celebrate a family birthday. There was nine of us. We each had food from the Sunday roast set menu. It was two courses for 11.95 or three for 14.95.
