Food in the restaurant was great, nice and relaxed. When we were in the ice rink the curling was 10/10 as was the food, we ate in the Alpine restaurant and also...

My wife and I have just returned from a long weekend break with a group of friends/curlers and I have to tell you it was just fantastic. From the friendliness of the staff(and I mean every one of them) from the maids to the waiters/waitresses to the manageress they could not have done more for us if they tried. I...

Yes this is an old style hotel and yes it isn't all contemporary lines but it oozes in old style charm. It reminds me of the likes of Crieff hydro many, many years ago. It is so so comfortable and cosy, we just loved it's relaxed atmosphere. Our room was enormous and spotlessly clean with a very comfy, cosy bed....

The room was very clean and bright with a sitting area for watching the TV. The bathroom was large and...

We had the pleasure of attending a Clan Gathering in Stranraer that needed plenty of accommodation, good sized meeting rooms, quality cuisine and somewhere that would allow us to combine our celebratory dinner with a lively Ceileh. That venue I’m pleased to say was the North West Castle hotel located on Port Rodie overlooking the picturesque Loch Ryan. Our arrival...

From the outside this hotel appears a little careworn and in need of a refresh and update. The rooms however are lovely and modern and well equipped. In the main the staff are very helpful but the waiting staff were a little on the brusque side. My breakfast was undercooked and I therefore left all of it but even when...

We stayed for four nights as part of the Clan Davidson Annual Gathering. We were a party of 68 and as well as needing rooms for meeting and greeting and AGM we also had a dinner dance on the Saturday night in the basement Jubilee Room. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were all cheerful and helpful. The Hotel...
