Dear kglc72, Many thanks for leaving a review regarding your recent visit to 1747 Restaurant. I will let the staff know how you appreciated their service at the time. There are some slopes to the car park - and Pickletullum Road is on a slope too - next time you visit you could drop your occupants off at the front door underneath the portico to avoid them having to negotiate the slope. I hope this helps. Best regards

Very tired looking

24/04/2016 Frances H,

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, however our stay was certainly not one of our best experiences. We were booked into room 208, very tired looking room which was clean but desperately in need... more

Congress weekend

Not a good hotel

Dear Deepcarcreeks55, I am sorry that the hotel did not meet your expectations - I do hope that you made your concerns at reception before you departed to give them a chance to make amends. It is always our wish to make our guests as comfortable as possible. I am surprised by your comments for the bar area - we do have a healthy trade in food from both residents and local people, so please be assured we will be doubling our efforts to ensure everything is spic and span. I hope we can accommodate you again in the future. Best regards

They've clearly given up.

29/02/2016 14thedude, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

We booked for lunch for a friends reunion, about 15 people plus kids and infants. Not easy to find a place on a Saturday, so we booked here reluctantly. Function Room: Big but morbid. Dated pastel d... more

MikeSheff, Owner at BEST WESTERN Lovat Hotel, responded to this review
Dear 14thedude, To say I am extremely dismayed is an understatement. But perhaps for clarification for the general public who read this review I would like to point out some facts that have excluded in your review. You visited the hotel on the 22nd February prior to your meal on Saturday 27th to enquire about the hotel accommodating a party of up to 20 persons. You were shown the Fraser room and also the restaurant but decided to chose the Fraser room as your private room. You were shown a copy of the menu and may even have taken a copy away with you. 1747 Restaurant has a TV on the wall should anyone wish to watch it, rugby or otherwise. At no point during the time in the hotel did you complain about the food. I have questioned all the staff on duty and they are as incredulous as myself that you state that they are embarrassed about the hotel. The Fraser room has been refurbished in the last 4 years. The restaurant has been refurbished in the last month. A new menu is in operation from today onwards. Our previous reviews generally are complimentary about the standard of food. Being a hotelier of over 40 years, I am a realist and understand that you cannot please all of the people all of the time. It seems from what you write at the beginning of your review that you did not want to be there or preferred to be watching the rugby at home perhaps instead of a friends reunion. However the ironic part of this is that you pre chose the room and venue and knew what the menu would be. It seems as a venue we were on a loser from the start! And you are using this forum to vent your unhappiness. Looking at your booking details it seems that my company has used your services in the past at the Queens Hotel in Perth. To conclude, people are allowed to express their opinions as they see it, and in this forum a right of reply is allowed for all to view. Please be assured we have not given up and my staff and management are briefed to handle customer complaints and comments and to appease any grievances that our customers may have - if they are informed!!! I sincerely hope that perhaps you see fit to visit us again in the future but to be honest I am not holding my breath until you do!
