Long enforced absence due to Covid, but home from home to be back in this excellent hotel. We love it. The new look in the dining area really works, and the food is top class. If we lived within a taxi ride of Queensferry (instead of living in Essex) we’d be in here every Saturday night for the Chateaubriand special! Above all, though, why we rate this place is the team. So friendly and so professional. All our family are in Perth or further north, where there are many “good hotels”, yet still we stay here when we visit.

We have stayed in the hotel on numerous occasions and have always been very satisfied with the facilities. The staff are always pleasant and friendly. Regarding the restaurant I have found the food to be well presented and the front of house very helpful taking care of any dietary requirements.

Executive suite plus various rooms all fab. Staff fab,amenities fab(although hand towels ran out and were not replaced in gents halfway throughout private function,rendering guests nowhere to dry hands!). Nothing seemed to be a problem,a tad pricey tbh but you get what you pay for eh! I would recommend.
