What a superb hotel, stopped overnight on the way to a friend in Aberdeen. £68 including breakfast for two so we wasn't sure what to expect. How wrong we were! From the start; we were welcomed in the reception with happy staff who clearly cared about their job. We were told we had an upgrade to a garden room ( I had requested a garden view if possible), which was wonderful as it was also our anniversary. The room was lovely, no in fact amazing, the bed was massive, three pillows wide and loads of space, wardrobe, desk drawer etc. We even had garden seating and stunning views. The gardener was working and also cleaning the windows, he recommended where to get cheap petrol etc. We used the pool which was lovely after a very long trip. We ate in the restaraunt which was good value food and tasty, the staff were attentive and friendly enough without over powering. You, also a good old fashioned hotel where the bar shut when the guests had enough. Previous reviews said about the staff chatting, so what! As long as you get the service you need which we definitely did,
Despite some negative reviews we had a good nights sleep no noise. We needed more coffee and the receptionist couldn't find the sachets, it was quite late, but went out of her way to bring a little tub of coffee to our room which was a little trek in the dark.
Breakfast was lovely, the restaraunt had fabulous views, it was inot rushed and was fresh, there was lots of choice and nothing too much trouble. If you wanted a quick service you could ask and you would get this, we saw some ask who needed to leave earlier.
We will definitely stay her again and would recommend this hotel. Family rooms are massive if you are bringing children and every thing was spotlessly clean. less
