Lovely hotel location

Lovely hotel location! Beautiful lobby & great front desk attentive staff. However, if you have any children- be warned, they won't allow them in the pool or spa tub unless you are in the water in suit WITH them. Ratio of 1 adult per 2 children. I understand water safety- but my kids are advanced swimmers. These rules are not publicized and therefore I did not pack a suit ( coming from states) and I had 3 very sad kids for 8 days/ 7 nights. They would even let me sit poolside and allow them in. Think with paying for amenities, I would be able to use them . Also front desk told me they couldn't get restaurant res at a place I found on yelp- but when we walked there, the place was empty & tables & dining was very much available.... Weird. I don't want to bring the review down- it's a lovely hotel & great location! Just a warning to families!

Just what I wanted! A restful, quite luxurious overnight bath & bed before continuing my journey. Reasonable taxi trip from the airport, though I should have researched the walk to the train station next day! Very helpful and friendly staff.

Excellent

I attended tha Team Scotland dinner at the hotel and stayed overnight! The food at the dinner was superb and of such high quality that made for a brilliant evening. The room was huge with 2 double beds and breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. I would definitely stay again

Great Stay...but

Great Stay, lovely hotel, although this time did see the room needing a bit of tarting up. Stains on bathroom ceiling and shower not in good working order. Food fabulous. All in all had a great stay.
