Although we had booked Room B&B through yourselves the hotel claimed it was a Room Only booking. I did forget to take the printout of the booking with me so couldn't prove it was B&B. I tried to phone your Customer Service that night but was unable to get through to speak to anyone as phone never answered by a member of staff. Although it was my fault forgetting conformation I would have thought the hotel had the correct reservation details. This was rather disappointing as the price was expensive just for the Room.

A 2 night break, excellent accommodation, excellent food occasional prompt needed for younger waiting staff. There was a University ball on and the corridors were a little noisy in the early hours but it certainly didn't spoil our stay

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 kids having upgraded on the November deal they offered (£49 B&B for 2) to bring them. We had a relaxing stay but to be frank if I had paid full price I would have felt somewhat robbed. Car park is very small with few spaces immediately handy for the hotel (evidenced by some creative parking on pavements and verges). Check-in was ok - nice touch with the cookies BUT they weren't nice and had nuts in them - kids binned them and giving out cookies with nuts when nut allergies seem so prominent is perhaps not the best move. Our room was nice and spacious but the hot water tap only gave hot water after the shower had been run for a while. We also had a large extractor outside the window coming up presumably from the kitchens as there was an intermittent food odour and the noise until it shut down around midnight was a bit irritating but tolerable. Visited the pool and the showers broke down whilst we were in - no one came to explain or apologise but another pool user (a local resident) said this had happened recently at which point they had shut the pool and so the hotel was unlikely to close it again. So, we had to dry the kids, hoof back to the hotel and then wash them which wasn't ideal. Breakfast was good but why do the staff take you to your table lumbered with a big jug of orange juice? That was frankly weird - it would be better to have teas and coffees served at the tables by staff in my opinion. Tattie Scones looked like they had been marinated in chip oil for 3 weeks but that was the only item that was sub-standard as far as the food was concerned. My biggest irritation was the hotel's free and easy 'pre-authorising' on my credit card. They 'pre-authorised' £100 being the upgrade I had already paid in full for bringing the kids; then pre-authorised £198 being the total cost of the stay (including the upgrade again) which was already paid in full. We checked out on 14th Feb and the £198 pre-authorised amount is still pending against my credit card. Something very wrong with their system especially since i never once consented to or authorised the £198 to be on there in the first place. I complained to reception and was told there had been a mistake somewhere and they would sort that out but I'm still waiting. Although the charge is not made to the card as such the pending amount reduces the available credit on the card and so such a mistake could have presented a problem for the cardholder. So, whilst we had a nice time away, I won't be rushing back here. Collapse

The best thing about this hotel is the staff who are smiley and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The overnight package was very good value for money. Dinner in the Kailyard restaurant was tasty and the portions were decent. Really enjoyed our stay, it's worth a visit. The only slight issue was because its a very big site the walking distance between room, bar and restaurant was quite significant. Wouldn't recommend if anyone has mobility issues. Collapse

As usual the hotel, rooms and food were amazing. However even more so this visit the staff were outstanding! We were planning a surprise for my parents anniversary. From a few months ago when we were booking the accommodations right down to how we would surprise my parents, each and every staff member were fantastic. I would like to especially mention, Jim the concierge, he went above and beyond making us all and mum and dad feel special. He even arranged to move their balloons from their suite to the dining room while we were enjoying the leisure facilities. The dining room staff, especially Lewis, were fantastic, the table complete with confetti and banners was beautifully set and nothing was a bother when it came to special requests for food not on the menu. Thanks to all for making the overnight a memorable one. Can't wait to visit again. Collapse
