    Very good

    The hotel was very quiet, and our room was on the ground floor.

    Our room was fairly small and there was a cold draught from the window

    Fabulous

    the only thing i didnt like was i had requested a late checkout and the maid service was at our door 3 times and felt really rushed to get out

    Fabulous

    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.

    We used this hotel because of its ideal location to Falkland Palace where we took a hot air balloon ride. The hotel and sorrounding area was wonderful. Helpful staff, clean and luxurious rooms and two excellent restaurants made this a very enjoyable short stay.

    Peaceful location with none of the usual "city noise". Looking out from the room window to see wildlife in the gardens etc. Lovely gardens, pity the weather wasn't so good thereby missing the chance to enjoy the ambience at its best.

    The main restaurant was closed because it was a Monday. However, the Bistro restaurant and staff were excellent and so were the public rooms.

    The covers on the arms of the chairs in our room were filthy, the window frame was rotting, the radiator in the bathroom was rusted, the sound on the television had gone and the safety checks on the electrical appliances in the room appeared not to have been done since 2008. The carpet was soiled and so was the bed throw and the door lock was unsound. There was no lift and our room, oddly enough our discounted room (£120), was as far from reception as one could get up the main staircase, then up a secondary landing and then along a corridor. The normal price is £175 for this room. Breakfast is £14.75. The assistant manager was made aware of all of this before we left.
