We stayed at this hotel this is a fairly modern hotel one of the better national holidays hotels we have stayed at.The hotel has only two floors our bedroom was on the ground floor it was clean the twin beds were very comfortable the bathroom had bath/shower,with tea & coffee facilities in the bedroom also tv with limited channels. The breakfast and evening meals were fine on the evening meal you choose your starter and desert which the staff serve you at your table the main meal is carvery so you help your self.The bar prices are a bit high but aren't all hotels the same ,all in all we had a great time the main reason for our stay was to visit the royal yacht Britannia.

I hate writing poor reviews but unfortunately this was. The room I had was booked as a double but I got 2 single beds. Having the hot water on full blast for the shower still only had the water Luke warm. Dark age radiators had that funky smell when they were switched on. And every time I turned on the light a worrying buzzing noise came round for 5-10seconds. On the plus side the breakfast buffet was very good

So tonight we had our wedding meal tasting, Home made tomato soup .... omg this was made to perfection, thick and creamy just the right amount of seasoning, My partner is really impressed. I had the pate oops no it was terrine again flawless the salad and dressing set it all off really well. We had the beef ( very tender and just fell apart very succulent ) and prosciutto wrapped chicken, not just plain chicken I could taste all the flavours through it 😘 from the prosciutto, tarragon, mushrooms. Again wow. Now for the pudding dark chocolate orange profiteroles , ( I cant have plain chocolate as it gives me migraines) my partner had this, he is a bit of a chocoholic and this well and truly past the test and that was just the first bite . Me well I had the pear crumble with the custard and yes just a perfect way to finish a meal . Craig the chef aced this tonight hats off to you, we are both really impressed with everything we had tonight and are super excited for our wedding. Love and hugs Julie & Mike xxx

Visited with my daughter for afternoon tea which was very good.Presentation was excellent and sandwiches very fresh with good fillings.Scones warm plenty cream with them.Good choice of cake too.Service was smooth and waiter very polite.Special mention to Barry who made and served us with cocktails.Will return.

Hotel is tired , needs painted and new carpets , but apart from that , bedroom comfortable , but as usual in hotels not enough milk or variety of tea bags and no biscuits, bed very comfy and large .Bathroom ok , needs a bit of up dating. Food - dinner - delicious- potato and leek soup --huge bowl with lovely toasted bread, other starters --calamari, slightly chewy , prawn cocktail was well presented and tasty. Mains -- leg of lamb with veg , very nice.Sweet - shared pecan tart , very tasty. Breakfast 0 good choice , all nice. Pool area - clean and we were only people in itStaff very pleasant.

Stayed here with National Holidays, two nights for trip to Edinburgh. As we didn't have a great deal of time in the hotel everything was perfectly acceptable, room was very clean and warm with comfortable king size bed, table and chairs (2) tv, wardrobe, plenty of drawers and good mirror at the dressing table. The bathroom was the usual continental style with complimentary toiletries, fresh towels daily. A error had been made with our room allocation however this was quickly corrected by a very nice helpful lady at reception(don't remember her name). The food was delicious with adequate choice, however we were kept to a strick time table. Our first three course dinner for two,starters were courgette soup, fish cake with warm rolls and butter followed by gammon fillets with vegetables and chips or new potatoes, the desserts were cheese cake or chocolate fudge cake (bought in and tin veg) Similar dinner on second night but we chose chicken breast and pasta in tomato sauce. The breakfast was very good with a extensive choice both hot cooked or fruit ,cereal, porridge, pancakes, yoghurt etc. The coffee was from self service machine with unlimited top up and tea selection was good. All in all we would definitely stay here again. Oh one last thing if you like a drink after dinner it's not wetherspoons prices.

We stayed as we had a function to attend locally. Bed very firm but had great night's sleep .Enjoyed Earl Grey and peppermint tea in room. Breakfast was very good. Buffet style but lots of choice. Bacon and sausages particularly good. I had a cheese board as a light lunch as we had been travelling and it was lovely. I would commend the staff as they were all very charming and helpful.

Not an exceedingly attractive hotel, but on the other hand no important problems with it. It is a standard Mercure, not recently refurbished ( my room at least ), with clean, spacious rooms and attentive staff. Good for a stay if you don't require a particularly beautiful location.

As with most of the other reviews the hotel decor is a little tired and a refurb is needed - but - it's very clean - beds are comfy - staff are very very good - very friendly, helpful and informative - they are a credit to themselves A very good value for money option

Good stop over. Really friendly staff. Good bar and good parking etc. Close to shopping centre etc. But, rooms and corridors very tired and furniture rather battered. Inner court yard could do with a good jet wash, and some bird feeders wouldn't go amis.
