A 3 night break for Hogmany. Allocated the Spa Lodge and were given a very large twin room which perhaps could have been laid out better. The meals were of excellent quality and the food was certainly plentiful. The staff were excellent and could not be more helpful. One minor criticism is the the dining tables were a bit cramped...

Our twin room was very cosy. We spent some time in the small pool which was clean and fluffy, big towels were provided. I enjoyed it but it was a quiet time. The shower was adequate and the sink was a cute shell shape. We didn't eat in the restaurant. We used the public bar which was very dreary but...

Just back from a five day David Urquhart tour. Hotel could do with a makeover, otherwise we had a lovely short break. Pleasant, helpful staff, great meals with several choices. Drinks vouchers for four drinks each (over the four night stay). Definitely value for money.
