    The history of the hotel and the landscaped grounds. The location was also convenient.

    Due to a wedding the prior night, my check-out bill was not available, and had to be mailed.

    staff very friendly - as per usual

    bedroom could have done with a re-paint - there is a program ongoing

    the history, the setting the grounds staff decor, its exactly as i was expecting. the wifi in the room was a big plus for a business man

    tv reception i only had 4 channels?

    The only positive thing to say about this hotel was that the grounds seemed nice and the old boys acting as night porters were very pleasant. The restaurant manager was helpful especially when sorting out our breakfast order, due to the waiter's English being so poor.

    The fact that the management are only concerned with "weddings"ordinary guests appear to be unwelcome. Decor and poor "energy saving" lighting makes the hotel seem even more shabby. At £160 per night room only one expects a great deal better!!! Duty Manager would not speak to us when we tried to complain. Reception was full of drunken wedding guests trying to book in/out with only one girl on duty.

    We held my sons wedding ceremony in the beautiful grounds of the hotel, then we had drinks and canapes in the courtyard, followed by the wedding reception in the Stables section of the hotel.The hotel supplied a very good band for the ceiligh in the evening. It was a perfect day and I couldnt fault the hotel management. They were very pleasant, organised and very professional.The hotel master of ceremonies was very good. Food was excellent and the hotel rooms very comfortable. We asked for stovies to be served for the evening wedding guests, but it was more like a tasty lamb stew and not like Scottish stovies at all.Chef needs to learn how to make real stovies.

    Nothing I didnt like about the hotel, but they could have had more staff at the Stables bar to serve wedding guests. Some guests got tired of waiting to be served so they went to the local shop to buy alcohol. Drinks were very expensive at the hotel. £8 for a large glass of wine !!
