While it's grand - with its huge carved staircases and marble fireplaces - the hotel is also cosy, with plenty of seating areas in which to relax.


Staff are exceptional and the service is polished (almost as much as the cutlery) - there's also room service available. There was once a dress code for the dining room, but it's now been relaxed.

Food & Drink

The Abercromby Dining Room is soothing, from its décor to its food. Enjoy classics such as haddock and chips and mixed grill, or liven things up with veal saltimbocca or even nasi goreng. We recommend a nice wee scone and a pot of tea in front of the fire in the friendly bar.
