Good food

The room was ok but really could be doing with refurbishing.

The breakfast and dinner was excellent.

Worst hotel I've stayed at in years -

On the good side dinner and breakfast were fine.

The restaurant service was efficient and the welcome couldn't be criticised. But Oh Dear!. I suppose the (un)welcome aroma of manure on the garden or garden nearby was a warning. The accommodation and d├ęcor was seemingly put together by a colour blind, diy enthusiast, on a budget of pounds, several decades ago and it has never been maintained since. Every carpet was threadbare, stained or otherwise wrecked, and every bit was probably a remnant. The furniture looked like stock rejected by a second hand shop - this is no exaggeration. Fitted wardrobes didn't. Everything was grubby, blinds were dusty, radiators rusty and needless to say did not deliver heat. Ok, it was technically still summer so the central heating was switched off. The conservatory type dining room desperately needed repairs and this is definitely the first time I've seen varnished chipboard used as a floor covering - I had to stop and gawp. The bedroom was cold, and there was no attempt to provide a heater when asked. I kept the bathroom single bar 1970 wall heater on all night to take the chill off. Every piece of wallpaper in the entire hotel is peeling. No bulb was greater than 40W. Amazing to find that a hotel like this still exists in Scotland. A review elsewhere says that to criticise this hotel means you need to get life (sic). I suggest that if you think it is any good, you haven't lived. Do it up and it could be a good place, but from other reviews it seems it has always been like this and renovation is not part of the business plan. I usually stay at the Newton - unfortunately it was full.
