"Stellar break and highly, highly recommended! Spent 3 nights here for my 36th Birthday with my partner. I live only 10 mins drive away but it was like stepping into another world. The building and the grounds are stunning. Everything COVID-safe to the highest standard. Took advantage of the (warm!) pool. Well situated for day trips (easy to get to Edinburgh, Linlithgow etc - we specifically visited Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian owl centre and Modern Art One Ray HarryHausen exhibition in Edinburgh). The service was out of this world. The team really went out of their way and were very upbeat and helpful. I really appreciate good service and this was probably the best I have ever had. As it was my birthday, they made it that bit extra special, which was really appreciated. The main man in charge (Andrew, I believe his name was) had a really great attitude and made you feel "at home." A big thank you to all of the staff - you all deserve only good things! Room was spotless and very warm and comfy. Same for the bed. Very quiet and a very restful sleep. The interior was very well done up and just oozed class. The food was some of the best I've ever had and that's no exaggeration!! Breakfast was incredible and set you up for the day (cereals, yoghurts, pastries, full cooked breakfast etc). Dinner was to die for. I honestly couldn't believe how tasty it was - out of this world good. I missed the "special" one night and they made it especially for me on my birthday the following day - how about that for service! Oh and their was also a gluten-free menu for my partner, which was awesome. I don't often drink but bar service was great and had a few amarettos (I think that was the name!). I wonder if the chef does a chocolate souffle as my step-daughter has always wanted to try one! I rarely write reviews but this stay has warranted it... and then some! Thanks for a great stay and Merry Christmas when it comes!"
"My wife and I went along yesterday for afternoon tea,having driven from just outside glasgow in horrendous rain. I said to my partner" hope the drive is worth it" On arrival we were greeted by Lindsey,,warm attentive helpfull mature beyond her young age,,We was shown to our table in a slightly dingy dull room that,s more rendisent of the time of Dick Turpin.I asked Lindsey would it be poss we can move to the front of the house more familiar and welcoming part of the hotel,,Without a second breath Lindsey was more than accomodating,,nothing is too much for this Gal.....I must also add the ACTUAL afternoon tea was quite simply "SUPERB"...freshly made sannys and 10 out of 10 for the home baked cakes and scones,,gold star to the junior sous chef!!!,,,Lindsey did promise us the big lovely front view table in the lounge when we return,,in the words of Mr,Schwarchaneegar,,,"I,L BE BAACK""
"Booked a 3 night family stay to enjoy some away from work at home mode to recharge the batteries. We booked the deal which was fantastic which includes dinner bed and breakfast. It has to be said the hotel and staff excelled expectations in the New normal of covid 19 and social distancing. Throughout during breakfast and meals everything was done to follow the guidance and sanitizer stations throughout the hotel. The real gem was the Scottish hospitality led by Andrew and the team who made a special stay as memorable. Hope to return again as everywhere within easy reach and within short car journeys to Edinburgh Castle Linlithgow Palace Stirling Castle the Kelpies Loch Lomond boat trip and Forth bridges and River cruise as well as doing part of the Fife coastal drive. Despite a busy trip still managed to get to use the swimming pool. The evening meals were certainly worth looking forward to and the staff were very attentive. "
