Excellent stay at the Scot.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Scot. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. They really took an interest in you and were willing to help in any way they could. The hotel is in a good location and staff were well organised for covid 19 restrictions.The only draw back was the lack of a lift to get to the second floor but otherwise perfect.

We only stayed for one night but couldn’t fault the hotel in anyway, staff were very welcoming and helpful, hotel was lovely fresh and clean , breakfast was a 10/10
Caren, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Hotel was clean and welcoming. Breakfast was really great, but the kitchen in the evening seemed a little under prepared for dinner guests - give them advance warning if you want to eat to make sure
Stuart, gb2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Our stay was a good experience. Receptionist/barman and waiter who manages to juggle three jobs at the hotel made us feel very welcome during our stay. Rooms are clean and replenished every day with tea/coffee and tea cakes which is a nice touch! Towels also changed each day. Also in a central location.
