Brief overnight stay

Lovely hotel and very friendly, excellent staff.

Only downside was my evening meal but everybody, even chefs, sometimes have an off day.

Wedding weekend

Hi overall good experience great room However had to wait a long time for breakfast items to be replenished and were in the restaurant about 1 hour before the breakfast was closed.

Didn't spoil the weekend but service should have been quicker but staff were all polite.

Excellent hotel

Hotel accomodation was excellent, clean and tidy, bed very comfortable, the only exception that the ensuite was small with the sink and toilet being to close together.

Staff where very friendly and helpful at all times, the breakfast was excellent with great variety to choose from. Found that refreshments was quite expensive, tea £3.50 beer £4 etc., otherwise great hotel facilities and would thoroughly recomend.

A Happy Break

We enjoyed a one-night-away break to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

It was all we expected it to be. Comfortable, friendly, good food, and peaceful.

Average in so many ways. Absolutely fine, but no reason to bring me back, unless i were passing.

Decent enough business hotel, reasonably priced with okay rooms.

No complaints from me, but nothing to specifically draw me back unless I were passing and couldn't find anywhere more appealing.

Macdonald Tickled Trout Hotel

The room was clean and very pleasant staff were neat, helpful and cheerful.

The food was good and served with a smile. A very good experience, and I'll be back. Thank you.

Fabulous stay

Having read the previous reviews, I was wary about the evening meal.

In the end it was fabulous. We asked for the sirloin steaks medium rare and they came out perfect, nicely pink and very juicy. On top of that, the scotch egg starters were to die for. Breakfast was gorgeous, the only concern being lack of staff on Monday morning. The staff were very polite and helpful.

Shame about the food!

This is the second time I've stayed here, Really nice place, quiet and plenty parking, however very let down with dining experience.

First visit had steak which was barely edible so this time I went for mixed grill with sauce, sauce never quite got to table and again steak was left as again you could not chew it. Asked for second glass of wine with meal but never arrived for 18 mins by this time meal was finished. Very disappointing and probably won't stay again.
