One star is Generous

by Aleysha86 on 24 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!! This hotel drags the Macdonald name down, arrived on a saturday evening with my sisters for a lovely night away. Our room was out in the annex a bit dated and run down, we then went to the pool which I can only describe as on the same par as a public pool. Cold and no relaxing atmosphere. However we decided we would not let it ruin our night. We went back to our room for my sister to find pubes in the bath"disgusting". We called reception and they asked if we would like t...

Poor restaurant service

by chrisminter on 22 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

Came here for a business trip and stayed one night, eat in the bar which was probably a mistake, the bar is dated and needs attention, service wasn't great either. Breakfast in the morning was very disappointing we had to queue for 15 minutes on the stairs, by the time I was taken to my table the restaurant was pretty much empty, not a single comment from the waitress, ended up just having toast, no milk and very depleted breakfast selection...

Comfortable accommodation in a hotel with great character

by SriBank on 19 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We had an enjoyable 3 night stay here just after Christmas, with 2 of our daughters. The main hotel building is historic, dating back to the 16th century, and has a lot of character.

The breakfast was fine, but the vegetarian sausages we wanted were not available until the last day, despite being on the menu. Some parts of the hotel, including our room, are...

This hotel and the staff were a real 'find' for us, my wife had been here many years before and had told me that the hotel was exceptional. I am happy to say that 15 years on the hotel still has that real friendly feel to it and staff that are so welcoming you really feel at home. The rooms are all tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming, the restaurant is amazing and the food - you will not want to leave the restaurant!!! Without doubt this hotel offers exceptional service and is a real gem in...
