Venue, food, surroundings and food. Value for money
the rooms are ultra large, very clean, original victoria features enhanced and staff are very dedicated on serving you to the best of their abilities
The room service is timely but very inaccurate - they have constant difficulty managing to deliver even basic tea and toast without providing simple things like plates or knives or cups. Would also suggest if people check if conferences or functions are being held as if so the facilities for guest disappear as in our two experiences day conferences took up every facility and uunable to have a quiet coffee area for meetings
Althought the hotel was full and there was a wedding at the venue, we were not affected by any noise whatsoever. We found our stay very peaceful. The staff were excellent and the service - reception, restaurants - was very good.
Able to control room temp. as weather had turned wet and cold. Also plenty of lounges to relax in. Everything was excellent +will return
Pebbles on entrance to hotel are very awkward to walk on and ruin heels on ladies shoes. This hotel should have a pool and spa it would then be absolutely heavenly. Mentioned both these points to staff.
Was there for a wedding
Even though we asked for rooms for the main wedding guests to be ready slightly earlier they won't and we where given inaccurate information to when they would be ready.
Our experience of the hotel was fantastic. The food was excellent and the staff couldnt have been more helpful. Overall a perfect break.
The hotel has character and the staff attitude makes your stay a very pleasant experience. The food is first class in both restaurants. The breakfast sets you up for the day ahead.
Nothig to dislike.
Hotel Victorian design and atmosphere. Breakfast served in the large and light ballroom was nice.
In a four star hotel I expected to find at least toothpaste in the bathroom but it wasn't there, unfortunately. Also the hotel website notes that toiletries are Molton Brown which they weren't; it isn't all that important of coarse but you would expect the information to be accurate, expecially that of a four star hotel. Dining places were only open certain hours and considering that the hotel is situated in the middle of nowhere, you couldn't just pop out to sandwish bar round the corner if you were hungry.
Leaky, soiled radiator, damp patch on ceiling.Intermittent scalding hot water from shower,Foul smell on stairway leading to room,location of room, no view due to high location of small window,refused access to another room - appalling as it was our 26th wedding anniversary. Wedding food - average, breakfast - poor - very limited choice.
This marvellous stately home was an idyllic and well maintained stop for us on a driving holiday and was within reasonable car distance of St Andrews. My wife and I had a very relaxed time there and would very happily return.
No dislikes or complaints at all
