The hotel is situated just off the M74 (literally 10 seconds drive back on to the southbound motorway). Rooms are clean and simple. The shower was excellent – double size and powerful. The television reception wasn’t amazing, and the Wi-Fi was intermittent, however there was 4G, so it was no issue. Although close to the motorway, I didn’t hear it...

Used this place as a half way house en route to Inverness. Friendly reception, basic but comfy room, decent food, good service overall, wouldn't want more than a night here but would definitely use it again if I was passing.

We had our wedding at this venue and it surpassed all our expectations even though we chose the budget package. The bridal suite was great with the Jacuzzi bath and probably the most powerful shower i've ever experienced. Sound system could be updated so guests can make the most of the speaker system in the room and bathroom. We ate...

Fiona and June did mine beautifully - I had my home stylistic do a hair rehearsal and sent the pictures to them so that they could recreate the look.

Hi Jade

As the previous responder has suggested, it would be best if you called us on 01461 800344 to discuss various options this with one of our wedding planner team.
