Reviewed 5 November 2015

I loved the location of this hotel within Strathclyde Country Park and two minutes to motorways in any direction you want to go north or south. The staff are helpful and friendly and we had an excellent stay overall with the traditionally Scottish buffet breakfast and a lovely dinner. I will certainly go back and will recommend it to others.

Dear Guest Thank you for your comments and I regret very much that you did not enjoy your stay. I was on duty on Saturday and I am sorry that we could not place you in a room at the front of the Hotel. I believed that you booked through Expedia therefore it is more difficult to contact you directly...
