Great stay, excellent food!

Great hotel with a fabulous restaurant. We stayed overnight after driving from Aberdeenshire. The room was lovely and clean and a good size. We had a drink in the bar and enjoyed a traditional ale. We ate in the restaurant, including starters, main courses and dessert. Every dish was presented perfectly and tasted delicious. Breakfast was made to order and of excellent quality.

Lovely hotel.

We had a very pleasant stay in this lovely hotel. The room we were in was very spacious and well decorated. The food was good for a hotel restaurant. All the common areas were really nice. The garden was a treat given the great weather.

Lovely Sunday lunch in a relaxed comfortable atmosphere

We were invited out for Sunday lunch at the Collingwood early May 2023 and enjoyed the food so much that we rebooked for the end of the same month.

The menu at Sunday lunch is set and from recollection, three choices per course. It is a set price. I had the smoke salmon starter (which was outstanding) followed by the roast sirloin beef (from a local butcher) and I couldn’t manage a dessert.

We managed to book a table in the restaurant on both occasions. We will return but would always book well in advance to save disappointment in not being able to get a table.

Relaxing break

We were given a weekend break as a Christmas gift and enjoyed it very much. We liked the art work and furnishings. Our room ( Polyphemus) was clean and comfortable with a huge bed and couch which was appreciated. Plenty of storage too. The bathroom had a fab shower and bath with plenty of hot water, lovely Molton Brown toiletries and big towels. The food was delicious and plentiful…dinner and breakfast. Staff were all chatty and friendly. (The room did have a strange noise which was not evident on our first day/ night but it was there after that, don’t know if it was an extractor or the central heating) It is dog friendly. Lots of places to visit within easy driving.

Perfect evening – highly recommended

Good choice of menu and everything we ordered (black pudding scotch egg; chicken supreme; rump of lamb and wild berry pavlova) was delicious. Excellent quality local produce cooked well and beautifully presented. Great service. Highly recommended.

Well worth staying

We both enjoyed our few days here. I don’t usually review en suite bathrooms but our bathroom was large with a great, deep bath which filled up very quickly. Dinner was excellent – a great range of local cheeses to choose from for one of the desserts but all courses were great. The manager was very pleasant, agreeable and very hard working. A beautiful and extensive garden out the back.
