    Convenient location, clean and functional and the staff were helpful

    The food was of a poor standard and most people like us as far as we could see stuck to burgers and chips. The Brasserie particularly look d vey unappetizing.

    It was a very busy weekend for the hotel but the staff coped well with everything they had to do.

    Their internet booking service was not very good so I had to use Booked.net!

    Car park good for access Reception helpful

    Room very hot. Did have an electric air cooler machine but it was so noisy. When the window was open the traffic noise was intrusive. The bed was comfy. The dinner in the restuarant was average at best, the waitress uncorked our wine, had problems with it, so there were small bits of cork floating around. She appeared flustered, had certainly not been trained to open and pour wine so we tried to make her feel better! The breakfast was ok with a decent selection however when I had finished a chef type person appeared offering to cook fresh omelettes which would have been lovely. My colleague and I were shown to our table and then left with no guidance as to what the breakfast could consist of.

    Superb

    Friendly staff - had been upgraded when we arrived, which was a pleasant surprise. The room was extremely comfortable & very clean. Plenty of parking which was why I chose this hotel over one in the city centre.

    The standard of the room was let down by the noise of other doors banging shut - no doubt due to them having self closing mechanisms, as in all hotels. The noise went on throughout the night & started again from early morning. Maybe there was a function on in the hotel & we were just unlucky but it has definitely put me off staying here again.

    Lovely room, nicely furnished. Good sized bathroom, powerful shower lots of hot water. Compliementary water nice touch. Powerful hairdryer compared to other hotels of this standard. Ironing board & iron also and plenty wardrobe space. Loved the pictures in hallways however it would be benefial to add the locations to these. . Excellent leisure and fitness facs. Friendly & patient staff. Great parking facs. . Had a lovely stay. Would stay again.

    Only down side was the smoking at main entrance and the upturned buckets caused by seagulls. Also the exec room I thought would be a kindsize bed however it was two beds zipped together.

    Being upgraded, Watching England beat Georgia in the Rugby World Cup with a great breakfast in an enormous comfy bed. Being close to our son who we dropped off at Aberdeen uni. Friendly helpful staff who treated us with courtesy and respect. Good food and atmosphere in the restaurant. Wonderfully clean, and I mean clean! Thank you, Niick Guymer, Laird of Glencairn and his Lady,

    Poor pillows and no cold Champagne or Prosecco ready to drink with our meal, surely there is facility and space to keep a couple of each in the fridge. We will be coming back so take this seriously!
