Stayed here as part of a wedding party. Got a tad lost finding the place (the trail into it is a little hard to see coming off of the A74, perhaps that was just us being blind as there is a big sign saying Best Western just before the turn) but that only added five minutes to our journey. Check in was fast and before you knew it we were in our rooms.
Our room (2) was lovely. Decent sized TV, comfy (if creaky) bed and a spacious closet - not to mention the spacious room. The rest of the party also had lovely rooms with room 5 having the biggest TV I've ever seen in a hotel room and a very grand armchair. Room 1 didn't have a TV apparently but hey, there's plenty to see and do in the local area so access to BBC1 is a minor point.
The bar is reasonably priced (3.95 for a pint of Carling, the same for a shot of Ciroc vodka) and the atmosphere of the restaurant area is very relaxed. The food is of a high quality with fresh vegetables and meat for dinner and a delicious cooked breakfast for when you stumble down (between 7 and 9) bleary eyed in need of a nice cooked meal to stand you in good stead for the day.
The greatest asset to this hotel though are the staff. Want a form printed off? Done. Want a certain drink at the bar? Done. Oh, you need that room to hold a small wedding reception? Yep, we can do that. Always friendly, incredibly welcoming, the staff really are a credit to the hotel.
Would definitely stay again - wherever it be for the service, the views or another wedding! less

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your great review, the 50 inch tvs in the bridal suites are great,, however the 32 inch tvs in your room and room 1 are in proportion to the size of the room how they missed it in room 1 we have no idea. but regardless you had a great time and the team are thrilled that their hard work did not go unnoticed, thank you again for taking the time to write your review.
