          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The breakfast was really nice - very well cooked and efficiently served.

            The room smelt very damp and if I had stayed more than one night I would have asked to be moved.

          • Couple
            7.8

            The location and the fact you could easily walk to the shops, beach and other attractions.

            I didn't like the downstairs bar being open all hours, one night was quite noisy but the staff were apologetic and I don't think this happens all the time by any means.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The beds were verry confortable. The location of the hotel is excellent. The hotel was verry clean and smell verry good. We had the suite, so we loved the gardens.

            The only problem was: the tv was not working, and it was the ''masters golf in Augusta"" during that week end. So we were verry disapointed about that. We told that at the reception, but I dont know why, it was impossible to you to do something about that.

          • Single

            The location is excellent for sightseeing of the small town, but the price is slightly at the upper end. There are just not too many choice of hotel in that town.

            The scottish breakfast was great, but I was not served in a morning because the absence of staff.

          • Single
            6.6

            The staff were helpful and the room had the usual complement of things such as kettle, hairdryer, trouser press and there was free wi-fi. Its a traditional old style hotel with a nice garden.

            Sound of traffic was disturbing to a light sleeper like myself. Bed a bit hard for my tastes. Breakfast was ok but not great.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The room is quite comfortable and the breakfast room very inviting.

          • Single
            5.0

            It was okay but I can't say there was much to recommend this hotel.

            No parking. I had to drive around for 1 hour to find on street parking, so arrived with only 30 minutes to get ready for a wedding. A bit too stressful!

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Friendly, helpful staff and excellent breakfast.

            Room was so small that I could not walk easily around the bed, and struggled to fit under the en suite ceiling.

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            Location. Breakfasts were good apart from the coffee.

            The room was small and the bathroom no more than a broom cupboard. The electric shower did not work properly fluctuating rapidly from very cold to scalding.The room was small for a double room and was not value for money. The breakfast coffee was weak and lukewarm.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Brilliant friendly staff and well furnished clean rooms. A brilliant location and good value for money - my mother, sister and I'd definitely go back!

          • Group of friends
            4.6

            situation

            pas de pression douche; personnel désagréable

          • Single
            4.6

            The central location was positive.

            The hotel is made of tissue-paper thin walls. When people go up and down the stairs, the entire place literally rattles like a drum head. On top of this the door on the room didn't fit tightly on the latch and so rattled extremely loudly when someone went up or down the stairs, waking me continously. The bed was uncomfortable and the tiny bathroom semp damp. Lastly, the breakfast was wholly inedible. The 'scrambled eggs' were uncooked, the sausage was so overcooked it was like wood, and the mushrooms were stone cold. I saw two other tables refuse to eat all or part of their breakfast, and I could not stomach mine either. All this for the price of a premium hotel. Shocking.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            If there was one fault we would have like the bathroom to contain a bath as well as a shower.

          • Family with children
            6.4

            Very close from the Cathedral and the sea side

            Toilets are too small and poor.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            Excellent location to St Andrew's golf courses and town. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
